Mick Jagger's Nicknames: "Your Majesty" and "Brenda"

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is really letting it all hang out in his new (and unimaginatively titled) autobiography, Life. Richards says that Mick Jagger became unbearable over the years and reveals that he also refers to the pillow-lipped lead singer "Your Majesty" and "Brenda." Draaaaaammmmmaaa!
The dynamic between Richards and Jagger utterly dominates the landscape of the 527-page book. Lead singer and guitarist squabbles? Shit, that's the crucial dynamic between every powerhouse band. Look at Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry! The push and pull between the frontman and the axe is very necessary and often yields the best results.
Richards also says that he has not been inside a Jagger dressing room in 20 years. Wow, touring as a member of the Rolling Stones must be such a comfortable, not tense endeavor. Wink wink, nudge nudge.
Will you be reading Life for more dirt on the relationship between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards?
