‘Millionaire’ Mick Jagger pocketed tips he left at restaurants
London: Mick Jagger, who has accumulated tons of cash after his success with The Rolling Stones, was famed for his meanness even after the band was making serious money.
Among those who witnessed his parsimony was photographer David Bailey, who once had dinner with him and Keith Richards at a fashionable restaurant in Chelsea.
“Mick put a ten-bob tip on the plate but as we were putting our coats on I noticed his hand slip out and pop the ten shillings back in his pocket,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
Jagger was later said to have written the 1969 hit ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ in response to a producer’s demand for a pay rise.
