Early Breakfast with Gary King 4am - 6am
The Rolling Stones front man has had a lot to say throughout his career...
“Lose your dreams and you might lose your mind.”
“I'd rather be dead than singing 'Satisfaction' when I'm 45.”
"It's all right letting yourself go, as long as you can get yourself back."
"People have this obsession. They want you to be like you were in 1969. They want you to, because otherwise their youth goes with you. It's very selfish, but it's understandable."
"I got nasty habits; I take tea at three."
"It's an overwhelming feeling, the audience. That must be why most of these people never give up performing. Because they just can't go without that sort of rush. It's a bit like having an orgasm. Sometimes an orgasm is better than being onstage; sometimes being onstage is better than an orgasm."
"I should think that being my old lady would be all the satisfaction or career any woman needs."
“My mother has always been unhappy with what I do. She would rather I do something nicer, like be a bricklayer.”
“Life's just a cocktail party - on the street.”
"I didn't have any inhibitions. I saw Elvis and Gene Vincent, and I thought, 'Well, I can do this'. And I liked doing it. It's a real buzz, even in front of 20 people, to make a complete fool of yourself."
