‘Miss You’ was written and credited to both Mick and Keith Richards, released in May 1978 as a single by The Rolling Stones, in advance of their album ‘Some Girls’, and made #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. This was the very last of 8 #1 hits for the Stones. The lyrics were inspired by Mick Jagger's deteriorating relationship with his wife, Bianca, of which he said, "To me, the feeling of longing is what the song is.” Jagger took a lead role on the album, since Keith Richards had been arrested for drug possession, and it was unclear what his sentence would be. The song has a disco sound, a change that propelled it to the top of the charts. This was a departure from Richard’s usual rhythm guitar. It was also unusual as several studio musicians were incorporated, including Billy Preston who came up with the basic track.
It turned into a major hit and Rolling Stone magazine ranked ‘Miss You’ # 498 on its list of ‘The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time’! These are the original lyrics to ‘Miss You’ handwritten by Keith Richards and signed by the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood Full forensic certification on each signature as well as the handwriting.
