LONDON (AFP) - For 35 years Rolling Stone frontman
Mick Jagger has famously strutted his stuff and belted out the hits without ever once having a singing lesson -- until now.
"Better late than never," the 63-year-old rock star revealed on Virgin Radio ahead of the band's London gigs on August 20 and 22, part of their "A Bigger Bang" world tour.
"I did a bit of voice coaching a couple of years ago, after 35 years with no voice coaching," he said.
"A bit of voice coaching and warm-ups ... really helps. I always tell these younger singers: 'I never used to do it either but you should'."
"I mean, you sing a lot. Every night you are singing for hours and hours and your voice gets tired, like anything -- like running every night. That's why you have to warm up properly. I just learnt that so that's probably helped me."
In the same interview, guitarist Ronnie Wood admitted that he has yet to see Kasabian despite the fact the young, hard-edged English band is supporting the Stones on their ongoing tour.
"If I get time I may check them out," Wood said.
