Pete Townshend Jokes About Mick Jagger’s ‘Huge,’ ‘Tasty’ Penis

Mick Jagger‘s sex life is getting plenty of play these days thanks to the new book, ‘Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger,’ which detailed his romantic pursuits of Angelina Jolie, David Bowie, and current French first lady Carla Bruni.

Of course that’s led to some humor from his peers, and the Who guitarist Pete Townshend had a little fun with the fascination with Jagger during the band’s ‘Quadrophenia’ tour press conference.

He joked, “What I remember of the size of Mick Jagger’s penis — I remember it as being huge and extremely tasty.” The Townshend joke was meant to contradict the statement made by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, who had several unkind things to say about Jagger’s behavior and his manhood in his 2010 memoir.

After making the comment, Townshend’s Who bandmate Roger Daltrey cracked up, leading the guitarist to turn his attention to the singer adding, “I don’t remember anything about Roger’s … and wouldn’t dare mention it. Let’s hope that makes the Internet.” (Editor’s note: mission accomplished!)

Townshend will have his own stories to tell as his memoir is expected to arrive in stores this fall.
