Mick Jagger on Keith Richards' book

Keith Richards has revealed how his bandmates' reacted to his book

Mick Jagger described Keith Richards' autobiography as "a bit b***hy", the Rolling Stones guitarist has revealed.

He told BBC 6 Music his bandmates had given the recently published book, Life, good reviews but the singer had said it was "a bit b***hy here and there".

Keith also told the radio station that the Stones were planning to tour next year and might record new material in December.

The band was "ready to go out there again", he said. "Who said it should stop, and who said when?

"Only we will know when it comes to an end, with a crashing halt."

Keith described the frontman as "unbearable" in the candid memoir and said he has "a tiny todger".

He also revealed his nicknames for his bandmate are "Brenda" and "Your Majesty".

He said in the book of his songwriting partner: "I used to love Mick, but I haven't been to his dressing room in 20 years.

"Sometimes I think, 'I miss my friend'. I wonder, 'Where did he go?."

He wrote about the singer's relationship with Marianne Faithfull, saying she "had no fun with his tiny todger. I know he's got an enormous pair of balls - but it doesn't quite fill the gap".
