Sir Mick Jagger and Dave Gilmour are among 200 celebrities to sign a letter asking Scots to vote no to independence next month, according to Classicrock.teamrock.com.
As Scotland prepares to go to the polls on September 18, Jagger and Gilmour have joined Dame Judi Dench, Stephen Hawking, Steve Coogan and Simon Cowell in signing the letter, which organisers hope will be seen by Scots as an appeal by the rest of the UK not to leave the union.
According to the Telegraph, the letter reads: “We want to let you know how very much we value our bonds of citizenship with you, and to express our hope that you will vote to renew them. What unites us is much greater than what divides us. Let’s stay together.”
Earlier this year, David Bowie weighed in on the independence debate at the Brit Awards, saying: “Scotland, stay with us.”
According to Classic Rock Magazine, ROLLING STONES frontman Mick Jagger has said he’s “shocked and devastated” after his girlfriend of 13 years was found hanged in her New York home.
Police believe fashion designed L’Wren Scott, 49, committed suicide with a scarf tied around a doorknob yesterday morning.
Her body was discovered by her assistant, whom she’s texted to come to the luxury Chelsea apartment. A police spokesman said: “A 49-year-old female was found this morning at 10.05am at 200, 11th Avenue. She was unconscious. She was pronounced dead on arrival by the emergency medical services. The investigation is ongoing. We are awaiting medical examiners to determine the cause of death.”
Jagger is currently touring Australia, with the Stones’ next show scheduled for Wednesday in Perth. The singer had been dating Scott since they met at a photo shoot in 2001. Their relationship had outlasted his marriages to Jerry Hall and Bianca Jagger, who last night tweeted: “Heartbroken to learn of the loss of the lovely and talented L’Wren Scott. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May she rest in peace.”
Scott left no suicide note. The New York Post reports that the pair had recently split up, while the BBC says her business was in debt to the tune of $7.6, with assets of just $1.7m.
