Jagger's promotion rattles fellow Rolling Stone Richards
London ï¿½ Mick Jagger's knighthood in June caused a rocky patch for the Rolling Stones, with guitarist Keith Richards saying he went "berserk" when he heard the news.
In an interview with the music magazine Mojo, Richards said he reacted with "cold, cold rage at his blind stupidity."
The Stones are doing a series of 40th anniversary concerts, but Richards said Jagger's decision to accept the title of Sir Mick nearly ended the tour.
Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts said Jagger deserved the title, but that Richards ï¿½ who co-wrote many of the band's classic songs ï¿½ should have been offered one, too.
