Keith Richards says sorry to Mick Jagger

Keith Richards has apologised to Rolling Stones bandmate Mick Jagger and admitted some parts of his autobiography "really offended" the singer.

The guitarist described the frontman as "unbearable" and revealed his nicknames for Jagger were "Brenda" and "Your Majesty" in his book Life.

"He and I have had conversations over the last year of a kind we have not had for an extremely long time," said Richards. His story in the memoir "was very raw, as I meant it to be, but I know that some parts of it and some of the publicity really offended Mick and I regret that".
