Rolling Stones' Keith Richards: 'Mick Jagger is still a great friend'

Guitarist says pair have talked about the band doing more next year

Rolling Stones' Keith Richards: 'Mick Jagger is still a great friend'
The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards has insisted that he is still "great friends" with Mick Jagger, despite branding the singer "unbearable" in his new book.

The guitarist admitted that his bandmate was angry about certain sections of his autobiography, Life, but they are still close pals.

"He was a bit peeved about this and that," Richards told Rollingstone.com. "[But] Mick and I are still great friends and still want to work together. Can you imagine if life went along smoothly and everybody agreed? Nothing would happen. There'd be no blues."

The guitarist added that the pair have even talked about more activity from The Rolling Stones in 2011.

Richards' comments come after he recently admitted in an interview that the pair do not get on, branding the singer "Brenda" and "Your Majesty".

He also admitted that he not been in Jagger's dressing room for more than 20 years.

Life is set to be released on October 26.
