The Who guitarist Pete Townshend has revealed there was only one man he "seriously wanted to f-ck" - and that's Mick Jagger.
The unexpected revelation will be revealed in his forthcoming autobiography "Who I Am", which he has been writing for 15 years.
"Mick is the only man I've ever seriously wanted to fuck", he writes, describing Jagger's penis as "long and plump". It's not the first time he's commented on the Rolling Stones singer's member - NME report that he once called it "huge and extremely tasty".
The book will be released on October 11, and details his "incredible life and elaborates on the turbulences of time spent as one of the world's most respected musicians - being in one of rock's greatest ever bands, and wanting to give it all up".
A lot has happened in the 15 years since he started writing the book. In 2003 he was questioned by police for accessing child pornography on the internet, but cited his book as the reason for researching it.
"I believe I was sexually abused between the age of five and six and a half when in the care of my maternal grandmother who was mentally ill at the time", he said. "Some of the things I have seen on the internet have informed my book".
He says he conducted the research "to face what is happening to young children in the world today and to try to deal openly with my anger and vengeance toward the mentally ill people who find paedophilic pornography attractive".
