Mick Jagger Zings Monty Python For Being ‘Wrinkly Old Men’

Subscribe to KOOL 101.7 on

As famed British comedy troupe Monty Python gear up for their much-anticipated run of reunion shows at London’s O2 Arena in July, they’ve enlisted one of rock’s greatest front men to help spread the news.

Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger appears in a video that was used at Python’s recent press conference in support of the Python’s new venture. In the 90-second clip, Jagger appears as a hilarious unselfaware caricature of himself decrying the whole enterprise as “a bunch of wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth and make a load of money.”

With drummer Charlie Watts seated (typically) silently on a couch beside him, Jagger goes on to complain about the price of tickets and ask, “Who wants to see that again? It was really funny in the ’60s.” Adding, “The best one died years ago. Maybe back in the ’70s it was fantastic – it was the funniest thing. We’ve seen it all before. I mean, they’ve put it all up on YouTube.”

The singer then goes on to dictate his own band’s set list to his assistant, “Start with something everyone knows like ‘Let’s Spend the Night Together,'” he says, before rattling off ‘Get Off My Cloud’ and ‘Satisfaction.’ The assistant responds by suggesting ‘Dead Parrot Sketch.’

This isn’t the first time that the acclaimed comedy group has turned to the rock world for assistance. In the ’70s, when funds began running low in the production budget for their film ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ they were saved by timely contributions made by Elton John, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Later on, the Beatles guitarist George Harrison helped finance their follow-up film ‘Life of Brian,’ for which he received an executive producer credit.
