Fair use rationale for Image:Angie1.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Angie1.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 20:27, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Allegation about songwriters[edit]

Due to concerns voiced by editor Sssoul and that it seems unlikely that Asrrn will be able to provide sufficient documented sources to back up the assertion about an alternative songwriter other than Jagger/Richards, I deleted the conversation in accordance with WP:BLP#Non-article_space.

The old Angela story[edit]

I'm not sure how to comment on here, but I just wanted to say that I have heard that this song may be about Jagger's relationship with David Bowie and not his wife. The story is that she walked in on them having sex. http://www.snopes.com/music/artists/bowie.asp

Is Angie a pseudonym for heroin?[edit]

The article states that according to Richards' biography Life, Angie is a pseudonym for heroin. Although Richards wrote that the song had been written while he was staying in Switzerland to cure his addiction, he does not explicitly mentions the connection between the word Angie and heroin, however he wrote it is not a person: ‘I just went, “Angie, Angie.” It was not about any particular person; it was a name, like “ohhh, Diana.”’

There are numerous speculations about the meaning of the song – the proposed explanation of singing about the detoxication seems to be the most probable. Does anyone know of a valid source to prove or disprove this interpretation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.141.80.48 (talk) 18:36, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
