Mick Jagger Nostalgic for Life Before Facebook?

Widespread press reports suggest that Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards aren’t on speaking terms — Mick even reportedly banned Keith from attending the Stones’ 50th anniversary party recently. But is Jagger possibly using Facebook to reach out to his estranged axeman — and regretting it?

Speaking of the social networking site, Jagger admitted to USA Today that Facebook even gets in the way of music for him. “I spend way too much time on the computer and not enough time playing the guitar,” he says. “There’s an underlying problem of this screen life taking over all of your life. It’s easy to keep in touch with people, some of whom I wish I’d never kept in touch with. But there they are on Facebook! You can spend a lot of time on that when you should be doing something else.”

Mick Jagger wastes time on Facebook? What’s next, you’re going to tell me he’s a Twitter user? Actually, Jagger does have an official account on the 140-characters-or-less text-based site — although that’s not him posting the frequent updates.

“No,” he doesn’t actually Tweet himself, Jagger admits. “But, really, who does?”

Well, Mick, probably most Twitter users handle their own posts. Well, at least the ones without handles like @Jagger_M. Or @officialKeef.
