Nearly Headless Mick

Alan Taylor has started doing weekly round-ups of interesting photos at In Focus. This is my favorite from last week's batch, the head of Mick Jagger, destined for a wax museum in Prague.

When Keith Richards met Mick JaggerApr 11 2012

Letters of Note has a letter written by an 18-year-old Keith Richards to his aunt about meeting Mick Jagger for the first time since they were childhood friends.

Anyways the guy on the station, he is called Mick Jagger and all the chicks and the boys meet every Saturday morning in the 'Carousel' some juke-joint well one morning in Jan I was walking past and decided to look him up. Everybody's all over me I get invited to about 10 parties. Beside that Mick is the greatest R&B singer this side of the Atlantic and I don't mean maybe. I play guitar (electric) Chuck style we got us a bass player and drummer and rhythm-guitar and we practice 2 or 3 nights a week. SWINGIN'.

The Stones played their first show three months after the letter was written. (via ★thoughtbrain)
