THE PROVINCE -WiBdrtesday; October5 24; 2001 ; 05 idt Jagger caJs Concert ffi dit Wew 9 sudF TORONTO Mick Jagger wasn't in New York when the World Trade Center collapsed on Sept. 1 1 but a substantial chunk of his heart was. And not only because the English rock star has called Manhattan home at various times in his life. "My daughter, Elizabeth, was living 15 blocks from the World Trade Center," said Jagger, during a phone interview. "She was going to work. And she's only 1 7. 1 couldn't get hold of her for the whole day because all the phone lines went out. "In the end it took me the whole day to get hold of her. It was really worrying, even though I knew the chances were that she was fine. But it was a really harrowing day." Jagger, 58, was in France at the time, preparing to leave for the Toronto International Film Festival to promote his acting role in The Man From Elysian Fields. He also produced another festival entry, Michael Apted's Second World War drama about code breakers, Enigma. From Toronto, he intended to go to New York but plans were overtaken by events. Jagger returned to New York for Saturday night's Concert for New York City at Madison Square Garden, joining other pop stars such as Paul McCartney, David Bowie and Eric Clapton for a six-hour telethon to benefit victims of the Sept. 11 attack. The floor seats nearest the stage were donated to 6,000 firefighters, police officers, rescue workers and the survivors of uniformed men and women who died during the WTC attack. "It was poignant and it was funny and it was sad and it was everything like that," Jagger said. "And it was the biggest audience of uniformed men that I've every played for. I'm ready to entertain the troops now." During the concert, Jagger was joined unexpectedly on the Madison Square Garden stage by Rolling Stones cohort Keith Richards for renditions of two of the legendary band's songs, "Salt of the Earth" and "Miss You." "It was also fun to have everyone together like that," Jagger said. "Keith said it was like the 1965 NME (New Musical Express) Poll Winners concert, which was kind of like a rock magazine's end-of-term party that we all used to play at. "I don't think I've been on the bill with Paul McCartney since one of those. In fact, the last time we ever did that was the last show the Beatles ever did, which was the 1967 NME Poll Winners concert. It was their last gig." Jagger spoke of his sadness over the uncertain fate of Toronto's El Mocambo site of the Rolling Stones' legendary live show in 1977 attended by Margaret Trudeau. The club's new owner is said to be moving his offices into the second floor, the scene of memorable gigs by the Stones and Elvis Costello, among others. "That's rather sad," said Jagger. "I'm sad to see it go but I'm glad it's not going to be pulled down and being made a highrise. I'm rather sad it won't be a club any more. I hadn't heard about it." r 1 1 1, 1 I X (I W V ; 1 vV V A h iii uratTii iniinii rMWMaiiiiiui r i 1 1 mi i V Reuters Mick Jagger sings at the Concert for New York.
