Mick Jagger is reportedly up in arms over the Rolling Stones' longtime financial adviser, Prince Rupert Loewenstein, publishing his memoir on his nearly four decades working for the band. Ultimate Classic Rock reported that the book, titled, A Prince Among Stones: That Business With The Rolling Stones And Other Adventures, will chronicle his decades advising the Stones from the late-'60s up through his exit from the band in 2007.
Jagger, who was particularly close to Loewenstein, the told The Daily Mail: "Call me old fashioned, but I don't think your ex-bank manager should be discussing your financial dealings and personal information in public. It just goes to show that well-brought-up people don't always display good manners."
In the book, Loewenstein says of Jagger: "After the first two or three business meetings with Mick, I realized there was something exceptional in his makeup." He's just as complimentary of Keith Richards, adding: "I saw that Keith was -- and I hesitate to say this -- the most intelligent mind of the band."
Keith Richards says Mick Jagger keeps a keen eye on the Stones' finances, and that make no bones about it; Jagger is hardly the funky, living-on-the-edge kind of guy he's portrayed himself to be: "Yeah, he can fool ya, can't he? Yeah, he's a conservative (laughs) in every way except when he works. He's a very, very conservative guy. Y'know, and when he's shagging -- that's another thing, I wouldn't know, y'know, what I mean?"
