Later, I try one more roundabout question about Jagger’s relationship to Richards. Talking about the band’s emotional ups and downs, [Charlie] Watts told me, “The two big offenders of that virtually lived together when they were kids, didn’t they? They lived down the road from each other. It comes from all that. They’re like brothers, arguing about the rent, and then if you get between it, forget it.” This has been echoed by [Keith] Richards himself, who told another magazine recently that he and [Mick] Jagger were like “two very volatile brothers – when they clash, they really clash, but when it’s over …”
Does Jagger see it that way?
“People always say things like that,” Jagger replies. “But I have a brother [Chris Jagger], you know? My relationship with my brother is a brotherly relationship, and it’s nothing at all like my relationship with Keith, which is more like someone you work with, completely different. With a brother, you have parents in common. You have families in common. We don’t have that, Keith and I. We work together. It’s nothing to do with it being a brotherly relationship. I suppose if you didn’t have a brother you might say that it was like being a brother. But being in a band is another kind of relationship.”

If you 40 minutes to spare, please watch/listen to this podcast. It will make you laugh, cry and cheer for Mike Tyson. A fantastic interview.
The grand irony of Roger Ebert’s career is that he became an icon of the thumb, of bite-sized opinions presented as a consumer service, yet on the essential matter of voice, you couldn’t find a critic who spoke (or wrote) more urgently, more eloquently, more passionately, or with a more fascinating thrust of personality.
HuffPostLive: Is TV News Too White?
“There’s still this fear, there’s this fear of actually making a leap… you have largely white male executives, okay, who are not necessarily enamored with the idea of having strong, confident minorities who say, ‘I can do this’… We deliver, but we never get the big piece, the larger salary, to be able to grow from there.” — Roland Martin
