Of Jagger’s knighthood, Wyman had, in 2003, told me tartly: “I know they would never give me a knighthood, even though, unlike Mick, I do live in this country, and, like [the drummer] Charlie Watts, do a lot more charity work than him. I also think to give it to Mick and not to Keith Richards, the
co-founder of the band, is a bit unfair. Maybe John Lennon did the right thing when he sent his MBE back.”
Still, last November, Wyman was willing to join the Stones on stage at a London concert.
