Jagger Enlists Teleprompter For Lyrics On-Stage

63-year old rocker Mick Jagger has begun enlisting the help of a teleprompter during live performances as a memory aid, which scrolls through the lyrics of the songs in time with his singing, and even reminds him of the city he's performing in and cues up his between song ad-libs. "He’s running all over the stage but if he gets a memory blank he can get back to the screen quickly,” a Stones source said. “He rarely needs it but it’s a back-up.” In addition, bandmate Keith Richards has also adopted the teleprompter, which he uses to remind himself which planet he's on, and in which pocket he's stashed his heroin.
