Mick Jagger’s Rolling Stones bandmates express concerns for frontman as Medical Examiner confirms L'Wren Scott's suicide
“No-one saw this coming,” guitarist Keith Richards said in a statement made by the band to Billboard magazine
“No-one saw this coming,” guitarist Keith Richards said in a statement to Billboard magazine. “Mick's always been my soul brother and we love him… we're thick as thieves and we're all feeling for the man.”
“This is such terrible news and right now the important thing is that we are all pulling together to offer Mick our support and help him through this sad time,” Ronnie Wood added. “Without a doubt we intend to be back out on that stage as soon as we can.”
“Needless to say we are all completely shocked but our first thought is to support Mick at this awful time,” said drummer Charlie Watts.
“He's holding up…He's not really well,” The Mail quoted Watts as saying earlier the same day. “He's not really here. It was such a shock.”
Their show of solidarity comes after a New York City Chief Medical Examiner confirmed that Scott had committed suicide. She was found by her assistant in her Manhattan apartment on Monday morning.
Jagger paid an emotional tribute to Scott on his official website earlier this week.
“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way,” he wrote.
“She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her, Mick.”
The Rolling Stones have cancelled the forthcoming scheduled dates of their tour in New Zealand and Australia.
