Right Said Fred are hurt after being snubbed by their old pal Sir Mick Jagger at a restaurant
Right Said Fred are hurt after being snubbed by Sir Mick Jagger.
The group's Richard Fairbrass has recalled how unimpressed he was when the Rolling Stones legend – who they used to be pals with – ignored them at a restaurant.
He said: "We sat next to him in a restaurant and he ignored us. We said, 'Hey' and he ignored us, which was rude. We played guitar and bass with him. He is a wonderful frontman but maybe he was having a bad day."
The band recently worked with Taylor Swift's team on her hit track 'Look What You Made Me Do', which samples their song 'I'm Too Sexy', but they don't envision becoming friends with the pop superstar any time soon.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "We're only allowed to speak to her through her people. We do – and they've been very nice."
When 'Look What You Made Me Do' was released, the group said couldn't be more thrilled with her inventive interpolation, as they said they were "honoured" to be a part of the track and took the time to thank the blonde beauty and her team for "being absolutely wonderful".
In a statement posted to their website, the band said: "We're very pleased to hear Taylor Swift's interpolation of our 1991 hit 'I'm Too Sexy'. Taylor and her team reached out to us about the track, we like what she does and we were very honoured to have her interpolation feature on her new single 'Look What You Made Me Do'. Thanks to Taylor and her team for being absolutely wonderful. We're very happy that our debut single will potentially be reaching new fans 26 years after its release."
