Mick Jagger won't write autobiography

The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger insists he will never write his autobiography because he thinks too many musicians have released books.

The 70-year-old rocker, whose bandmate Keith Richards released his own memoirs, Life, in 2010, would rather spend his time working on other projects.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Jagger said: ''I think the rock 'n' roll memoir is a glutted market. I'd rather be doing something new. I'd rather be making new films, making new music, be touring. If someone wants to know what I did in 1965, they can look it up on Wikipedia without even spending any money.''

Mick, who heads up his own production company, Jagged Films, wishes people would understand he has other interests outside of music.

He added: ''Normally, people want to talk to me about being onstage, and if they want to hear about the film thing they go, 'Oh yeah'. But I'm not just interested in doing musical films.''
