"Look At Me! Look At Me Now! " - Bono

Okay -- I KNOW this is WAY off topic, but I found it funny.


LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Keith Richards is not amused.

The legendary Rolling Stones' guitarist has flown into a rock and roll rage against Mick Jagger over the singer's decision to accept a knighthood, the ultimate nod from the British establishment.

"I don't want to step out onstage with someone wearing a coronet and sporting the old ermine," Richards told British music magazine "Uncut" in an expletive-rich interview.

"I told Mick it's a paltry honor ... It's not what the Stones is about, is it?"

The Stones, still rocking after 40 years, made their names with crunching rock classics including "Satisfaction," "Street Fighting Man" and "Brown Sugar."

A 1967 Stones' album was entitled "Their Satanic Majesties Request."

Despite his near spotless rebel credentials, Jagger, 60, is scheduled to become "Sir Mick" at a Buckingham Palace ceremony on December 12.

He will join British musicians Paul McCartney and Elton John who have already been knighted by Queen Elizabeth with a touch of the sword.

Richards' own chances of arising Sir Keith, already thought slim after 59 years of hard living, will have receded even further.

Knighthood has hit a new low.

Sir Elton the Limp of Wrist?

What's next, Sir Michael of Neverland?

I don't know if it's hit a new low.  Think of all the Crusaders who were knighted back in the day  Wink

I guarantee you they were worse off than the soon to be Sir Mick.

        Elton John has great musical talent-prejudice about his sexuality nonewithstanding.  He truly deserved his Knighthood.

            Good for you, Sir Elton!

The biggest irony is that it is Keith Richards who is the church-going Anglican.

what I'm wondering is . . . is Elton John the first QUEEN to be a knight?

What a joke

"Never let anyone try to tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was fully Orthodox for a thousand years; and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."
