Jagger: Don't call me Sir
09:30 04 September 2005
Rolling Stone frontman Sir Mick Jagger has banned people from using his official title.
The veteran rocker, who received a knighthood last year for his services to music, says it's "naff" when people call him Sir Mick.
The 62-year-old, who is currently touring America with the Rolling Stones, said: "It was very nice to be offered it and I didn't think that it would have been good manners to decline.
"No one calls me Sir Mick and I never ask them to - and I don't have it on my letter headings, unlike some people."
But it seems not everyone is as relaxed about their knighthood.
Sir Ben Kingsley allegedly insisted on being addressed by his official title while filming the new 'Oliver Twist' movie.
Sources claim the knighted actor, who plays Fagin in the upcoming film, told the cast and crew he must be called 'Sir' at all times.
Insiders also say the 'Gandhi' star spoke in his Fagin accent even when he wasn't filming scenes.
