Wings: The Forum, Los Angeles

Chris Salewicz, New Musical Express, 17 July 1976

Old Jagger, now: there are those of us who feel quite firmly convinced that his Dartford accent actually becomes much more extreme with every Stones' US tour. God only knows what Janet Street-Porter would sound like if she joined a rock band.
