Mick Can't Get No Satisfaction? Oh yes he can!

    PRESIDENT George Bush can’t get no satisfaction — after Mick Jagger grabbed his hotel room.

    The Rolling Stone splashed out £3,600 a night for the suite days before the US leader tried to book it.

    Now Mick, 62, who has been a fierce critic of the Bush-led war in Iraq, is refusing to give it up.

    The veteran rocker hired the luxury Royal Suite at the five-star Imperial Hotel in Vienna, Austria, for June when the Stones are due to play a gig in the city.

    Bush’s aides then tried to book it to tie in with a summit meeting.

    But Mick put his foot down and insisted he was keeping the booking.

    A source close to the millionaire singer said last night: “White House officials had wanted to reserve the suite and all the other rooms on the first floor.

    “But Mick and the Stones had already booked every one of them.

    “Bush’s people seemed to be under the impression that they would just hand over the suites but there was no way Mick was going to do that.”

    The classically-designed suite is said to be among the top 100 hotel rooms in the world. It boasts a 7ft 4in bed, chandeliers and oil paintings.

    Former presidents Ronald Reagan, John Kennedy and George Bush Senior all stayed there while they were in office.

    The hotel last night admitted US secret service agents vetted the accommodation — and confirmed that Bush would no longer be staying there.

    An American Embassy official refused to say where he was now staying for “security reasons”.

    Mick takes a swipe at Bush, 59, on the latest Stones album A Bigger Bang, savaging his Iraq War policy.

  2. lurv the stones, but please

    there is no way a political lightweight like mick jagger can 'savage' any president (or prime minister). i mean PUHLEEZE

    there are a scant few big name musicians out there who are not lightweights. Certainly, bono comes to mind

    but even Ginger Spice is more of a heavyweight than Mick, politically speaking

    seriously...
     
  3. Who gives a fuck about that crusty old has been Mick Jagger? The Stones haven't had a good album in...ummm...uhhh....oh yeah, they pretty much always sucked (and so did Jagger....on David Bowies knob).
     
  4. Kinda fell down @ voodoo lounge really.

    Whitster, how is bono a heavyweight? Billy bloody bragg has more political credentials, but then hes a crap musician.

    If the stones played there sets like muddy waters or bb king, you wouldnt have a problem i bet. Or if there tunes were as good.........

    Edit -gazumping dubya is good though
