Twilight in Babylon: Adventures with the Rolling Stones
Nick Kent, MOJO, April 1994
THE FIRST THING you need to know about my adventures with the Rolling Stones is that they pretty much all took place once the basic thrill had gone out of the group and their music. Mick Jagger himself would admit as much many years later when he informed an interviewer: "To use a cliche, the '60s never really ended until later on in the '70s. I sort of remember the album Exile On Main Street being done in France and also in the United States, and after that going on tour and becoming complacent, and thinking, 'It's '72. Fuck it. We've done it.' We still tried after that, but I don't think the results were ever that wonderful."
