Mick Jagger: When To Trash A Hotel Room
Mick Jagger has shared the lessons he has learned from his 50-year career with the Rolling Stones.
The singer was sending himself up on the Late Show With David Letterman in New York, the latest stop on the band's 50th anniversary tour.
Jagger, 69, stood on the stage in the Ed Sullivan Theatre where his band first played in 1964 and read the show's regular Top 10 list, which included jokes about trashing hotel rooms and Maroon 5's hit song, Moves Like Jagger.
See below for the full list, titled Things I, Mick Jagger, have learned after 50 years in rock n roll.
:: Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album.
:: Never take relationship advice from Phil Spector.
:: Before shouting "Hi Seattle," make sure you're in Seattle.
:: You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having "moves like Jagger."
:: Everybody you met after you become famous is only interested in you as a person.
:: Song royalties are great but even they can't match the guaranteed cash flow from a reverse mortgage.
:: A good way to keep yourself entertained is to sign every tenth autograph "Doris Goldblatt".
:: Be considerate of other hotel guests - trash your room by 10pm.
:: You can't always get what you want - like a good joke on the top 10 list.
:: You start out playing rock n roll so you can have sex and do drugs but you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock n roll and have sex
