You Can’t Always Get What You Want by The Rolling Stones
Foley: Mike, I want to tell you a little secret. Although I had a hard time finding people to come be a guest for this show, when this man caught wind that I was looking for ANYBODY to be a guest he called me IMMEDIATELY. Do you recognize this voice?
???: Oi Mike!
Mike Check: Don’t tell me, it’s Jacko from the ole Energizer commercials! Oh I love Jacko’s music because he’s such a great singer.
Mike Check: Mick!
Mick Jagger: Oi Mike! How yah been? Missed yah mate.
Foley: So how do you know Mick Jagger of all people?
Mike Check: Well it was back when I was in London and it was time to go back to the good ole U.S.A. and I couldn’t go back because I found out that no good cigar-stealing hack Ringo Starr stole my passport when he went to the States. So here I was a broken man crying in the streets and let me tell you Rick it’s very hard to make ole Mike Check cry.
Foley: So what happened next?
Mike Check: I felt someone touch my shoulder then he said “What’s wrong there mate?” I look up and its this guy. *slaps Mick Jagger on the back*
Mick Jagger: I’ll take it from here Mike. Mike here told me what was going on and how some bloke left him stranded in a foreign country and we we’re going to the States, so the band decided to take Mike with us to the States as a roadie. So we smuggled Mike in with the instruments and next thing yah know I brought this bloke back to his home.
Foley: Mike Check was a roadie for The Rolling Stones?!?
Mike Check: Not one of my more proud moments there Rick but when the radio jobs aren’t coming you have to get a job somehow.
Mick Jagger: Mike was an OK roadie. At times he couldn’t get the sound right or the instruments set up in time but there was one thing Mike was always good for mate and that was the women and the booze. Mike was the one that partied a lot in the group and kept Keith Richards out longer than he supposed to and when I started to bring in more women then he had. Oh man the times Mike and I doubled up on some of these birds–
Mike Check’s Daughter: I don’t want to hear this! *sticks her fingers in her ear* Lah-lah-lah-lah. Lah-lah-lah-lah.
Foley: Yeah. *cough* Me neither.
Mick Jagger: Unfortunately we had to let Mike go at one point because he wasn’t up with the times. The band felt sad to see him go but Mike’s one hell of a bloke there. Mike’s the one that introduced me to Jerry Hall. Then when the marriage got annulled and I married L’wren and…uh-when she…died. Mike was there helping me out through it all.
Foley: Wow. Someone that actually knew Mike Check and the only thing happened was a good story about friendship. Like the times with me and Al Snow. In fact one time–
Mike Check: Say Mick did you bring any pretty fillies with you so we can re-live some good ole memories?
Mick Jagger: Sorry mate but “you can’t always get what you want”.
