July 12, 201676 min
Mick Jagger fooled around with Keith Richards’ girlfriend. I wouldn’t be able to work with someone after that. But maybe that’s why I’m author. And not a rockstar. The Rolling Stones became a new band every 5-7 years. They were “perpetual amateurs.” That’s one of the keys to staying alive as an artist. Or as an entrepreneur. Or staying alive at all… “Remain the same but different.” And be “open to influence,” Rich Cohen said. He wrote “The Sun & The Moon & The Rolling Stones,” an incredible book about the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band of all time, fate, creation, sex, influence and the art of reinventing yourself. It was “the gig of a century:” touring with The Rolling Stones the summer of ‘94. Then Rich worked with Mick Jagger on the HBO series “Vinyl.” But this story isn’t just about The Rolling Stones. It’s about creation, corruption and reinvention. And the 9 ways you can reinvent yourself today. Listen now to hear half a dozen more stories about rock ‘n’ roll, fate, influence and inspiration.
