Rocker Mick Jagger reads 'Late Show' Top 10 list

NEW YORK, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- British rock icon Mick Jagger, who is celebrating 50 years with his band the Rolling Stones, read a Top 10 list on "Late Show" in New York this week.

Jagger shared "Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years in Rock 'n' Roll" on Tuesday's edition of the program.

It read as follows --

10. Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album.

9. Never take relationship advice from Phil Spector.

8. Before shouting, "Hi, Seattle," make sure you're in Seattle.

7. You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having "moves like Jagger."

6. Everybody you meet after you become famous is only interested in you as a person.

5. Song royalties are great, but even they can't match the guaranteed cash flow from a reverse mortgage.

4. A good way to keep yourself entertained is to sign every 10th autograph "Doris Goldblatt."

3. Be considerate of other hotel guests -- trash your room by 10 p.m.

2. You can't always get what you want -- like a good joke on the Top 10 list.

1. You start out playing rock 'n' roll so you can have sex and do drugs, but you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock 'n' roll and have sex.
