Mick Jagger wrote the lyrics about his breakup with Marianne Faithfull.
Bobby Keys played the saxophone on this track and Jim Price, who also came up with the horn arrangements, played the trumpet. They both joined The Stones for their 1970 European tour.
Billy Preston played the gospel organ.
Sticky Fingers was the first album The Stones recorded on their own label, and the first in which Mick Taylor played guitar on nearly all the tracks. It has sold over 6 million copies since it's release. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
