Keith Richards Is Sorry He Mentioned Mick Jagger’s ‘Tiny Todger’

Along with the many drugged-out anecdotes and older-wiser observations included in Life, his 2010 autobiography, Keith Richards threw in more than a couple unflattering anecdotes concerning Mick Jagger. Some of it was standard band drama, but some of it was very personal — as in, the phrase "tiny todger" was used. Well, a year or so later, Keith Richards is feeling a little bad about those comments, and he would not like to officially apologize. "As far as the book goes, it was my story," he says in a 50th anniversary interview. "It was very raw, as I meant it to be, but I know that some parts of it and some of the publicity really offended Mick and I regret that." And now the Stones can go back to what they do best: plotting never-ending tours.
