He's outlasted Jerry, Bianca and Carla and helped the Stones earn 1 BILLION. But now the man they call Rupie The Groupie has quit, what will the famously frugal Mick do without him?

Guests couldn't believe their eyes. There he was, Mick Jagger, one of the most famous rock stars in the world, chasing his manager round London's Savoy hotel, screaming: "Where's my money? Where's my money?"

The Rolling Stone could not believe that after making massive international hits such as Satisfaction and Jumpin' Jack Flash, he and the rest of his band were stony broke.

Not only that, they owed massive back taxes and, worse still, had signed away the rights to their songs.

Jagger blamed one man for the mess: the Stones' manager Allen Klein. To this day, he resents the fact that Klein holds the rights to all their recordings before 1970.

"From Brown Sugar onwards, the Stones get a reasonable amount of royalties if you hear a song on the radio," says one Stones source.

"But for the records before that, they get something like half a penny. Mick still regards it as a complete rip-off."

The man he brought in to sort out this financial mess was Prince Rupert Loewenstein - an impeccably well-connected Catholic banker, with a cut-glass accent and a fondness for sombre, yet expensive, suits.
