Mick Jagger's Brown Sugar Love Letters Going Up For Auction
Ten letters from Jagger, written in July and August 1969, will be sold December 12th at Sotheby's, where they are expected to fetch £70,000-£100,000 (roughly $111,000-$158,000).
The letters supposedly show an intellectual, sensitive Jagger who was exceedingly self-aware about his fame. Written while Jagger was filming the movie Ned Kelly in Australia, the letters find him referencing the death of Stones guitarist Brian Jones, as well as his feelings about Bob Dylan and John Lennon/Yoko Ono. He discusses the reading material sent to him by Hunt (Emily Dickinson poems, Vaslav Nijinsky's diaries), and includes bits of lyrics he's writing (like the track "Monkey Man"). more on this story
