Brown Sugar it would contain too many references to “bad things”: slavery, violence, rape. It matters little that Keith Richards, co-author of the text with Mick Jagger, tried to explain how the song wants to denounce the horrors underlying certain phenomena. The song will be retired.
“Isn’t it clear that this is a song against the horrors of slavery?” They are trying to bury her and right now I don’t want to conflict with all this shit, but I hope we can resurrect our little girl in all her glory somewhere one day along the way, ”Richards told the Los Angeles Times, confirming how the song has been officially removed from the No Filter Tour lineup, currently underway in the United States.
