Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have settled their differences and will reunite for a Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour.

Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards revealed that they have ended their bitter feud following a meeting in New York, and are looking forward to getting back together for a Rolling Stones reunion tour.

The row began after Richards made a series of attacks on Jagger in his 2010 autobiography, Life.

In his best-selling autobiography, Richards accused Mick of being “unbearable” and claimed they had not even shared a dressing room for 20 years. He also mocked Jagger’s manhood, saying that girlfriend Marianne Faithfull “had no fun with his tiny todger”.
Jagger angrily hit back, branding the book “bitchy” and “tedious”.

“I know that some parts of it, and some of the publicity, really offended Mick and I regret that,” said Richards.

The pair have been arguing on and off since the 1980s, with their quarrels mainly revolving around who was in control of the band. Describing the start of the latest row, Keith said in 2010: “It was the assumption that he was bigger than the Stones which started to annoy, then enrage me.”

The band were involved in secret jamming sessions in London last December with original bass player Bill Wyman, who quit in 1992. “We’re planning to get things going… again,” said Richards.

The band will celebrate five decades in pop on June 20, 2012.
