17 year old wunderkind Kiran Leonard has unveiled a new song, ‘If I Met Mick Jagger’. The song’s loosely about the Stones, their enduring fame, and the mixture of phases they’ve had in their career. Or, at least, relics of the bygone age of debauchery in platinum-selling rock and roll when there was the money/the glory days of 70s stadium rock/the ridiculous shelved doc ‘Cocksucker Blues’ (shelved mainly because it’s full of shots of Keith doing heroin with Lou reed and a bunch of naked groupies…).
