Richards himself said in a 1998 interview: "I think of our differences as a family squabble. If I shout and scream at him, it's because no one else has the guts to do it or else they're paid not to do it. At the same time I'd hope Mick realises that I'm a friend who is just trying to bring him into line and do what needs to be done." Richards, along with Johnny Depp, tried unsuccessfully to persuade Jagger to appear in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, alongside Depp and Richards. And media also seems to say that if Mick Jagger and Keith Richards keep fighting, there may not be another tour.
-The 2 have different sides of how this collaboration has come to be.
According to Keith:
"So what Andrew Oldham did was lock us up in the kitchen for a night and say, 'Don't come out without a song.' We sat around and came up with 'As Tears Go By'. It was unlike most Rolling Stones material, but that's what happens when you write songs, you immediately fly to some other realm. The weird thing is that Andrew found Marianne Faithfull at the same time, bunged it to her and it was a fuckin' hit for her - we were songwriters already! But it took the rest of that year to dare to write anything for the Stones."
Jagger's version is:

"Glimmer Twins" origin
How they came across the name Glimmer Twins is they were on a vacation cruise to Brazil in December 1968/January 1969 with their girlfriends Marianne Faithful and Anita Pallenberg. An older English couple on the ship kept asking Mick and Keith who they were. When they repeatedly refused, the woman supposedly said "Just give us a glimmer" meaning give us a hint about who you are, which seemed to amuse Mick and Keith
