PETE TOWNSHEND SAYS MICK JAGGER ISN'T WORRIED ABOUT 'SIZE'

11/19/2012

Pete Townshend turned a few heads in his new memoir, Who I Am, when he said that Mick Jagger was the only man he ever wanted to have sex with. Townshend -- who countered Keith Richards' recent portrayal of the alleged small size of Jagger's penis in his own autobiography, Life -- described Jagger's member as being "long" and "plump."

Townshend was asked by Mojo if he received any feedback from the Rolling Stones frontman on the compliment: "It was just fun. Mick hasn't come back to me, no. Why would he bother? I very much doubt that he even had five seconds of anxiety about what Keith Richards said about his d*** either. A man who has shagged some of the most beautiful women in the world is not going to worry about that."

Townshend, who's been and outspoken fan of Jagger's solo work over the decades, has joined forces with him on a number of occasions, most notably supplying guitar on the Stones' song "Slave" from their 1981 Tattoo You album. Townshend told us that although he and Jagger have never written together, it's not something that's entirely out of the question: "Y'know, even very, very intimate friends like Mick Jagger, and I'm a great fan of his solo work, I think it's incredibly underestimated. Y'know, he's asked me to work on several records with him and I've very much enjoyed doing it. But he's never suggested that we write together. Now, his ex-wife Jerry (Hall) used to say all the time, 'You and Pete should write together.' And we would kind of go, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah. It may happen, it may not.'"
