“When Sir Mick’s autobiography comes out, readers will be able to form an opinion on the matters to which John Blake refers, if he chooses to write them.”

About the book, Mick said, ‘If you want to write an autobiography, it’s not a process you can do in a week, it takes a lot of you, it takes a lot of you.

“It takes a lot of reliving, reliving emotions, reliving friendships, ups and downs and all of this, and I have to say it wasn’t the most enjoyable experience, to be honest.

“It was extremely boring and disturbing and there weren’t that many highlights. So I just said, “I can’t care less about this,” and I gave the money back to the publishers and, “I’ll do it another day,” and then it was done.

“I think I said something stupid, like, ‘I couldn’t remember anything.’ It really wasn’t. It was just that I didn’t like the process.”
