Subject: Mick Jagger uses autocue for lyrics

Written By: Philip Eno on 07/19/07 at 12:20 pm

Mick Jagger has started using an autocue on stage - in case he forgets the lyrics to his songs.

The Rolling Stones singer has a screen hidden in his speakers.

He uses the screen to remind him which city he is in.

According to the Sun a source said: "Mick's not getting any younger and he doesn't want to slip up.

"He's generally running all over the stage but if he gets a memory blank he can get back to the screen quickly.

"He rarely needs it but it's a back-up. It would be pretty embarrassing to forget the words to a song like Satisfaction when you've been singing it for 40 years."

Ha! Shane MacGowan was a damn sight worse off than Mick when Shane was 30!
