MIck contains within himself, within his persona as a performer, oppositions that he does not wish to resolve. We can't resolve them, either, so the line from "Sympathy for the Devil" that goes "what's puzzling you is just the nature of my game" is both ironic and accurate.
On this day in 2005, The MBE medal that John Lennon returned to the Queen was found in a royal vault at St James' Palace. Lennon returned his medal in November, 1969 with a letter accompanying saying, "Your Majesty, I am returning my MBE as a protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against Cold Turkey slipping down the charts. With Love, John Lennon."
