The Rolling Stones are set to celebrate their long career as a band next year (2016) with their first exhibition at London's Saatchi Gallery on King's Road, appropriately named 'Exhibitionism'. A variety of artefacts, art and videos will be on display, all collected over a period of three years.
‘Exhibitionism’ will open at the Saatchi Gallery next April.
Not content with being one of the most legendary bands of all time, The Rolling Stones have just announced their first career spanning exhibition which will take over London’s Saatchi Gallery from April 2016. Titled ‘The Rolling Stones – Exhibitionism’, it will run across nine galleries over two floors and showcase over 500 artefacts from the band’s history.
The Rolling Stones have announced at career-spanning touring exhibition.
“We've been thinking about it for quite a long time but wanted it to be just right and on a large scale just like planning our touring concert productions,” frontman Mick Jagger said. “I think right now, it’s an interesting time to do it. We’ve been pretty hands-on in this.”

The Clapton version will be included in band’s upcoming reissue of their ‘Sticky Fingers’ album.
The Rolling Stones have shared a previously unheard version of classic track ‘Brown Sugar’, featuring Eric Clapton on guitar. The alternate take was made public just days before it appears on the reissue of the band’s 1971 album Sticky Fingers, which hits on June 8th.
The Rolling Stones are reissuing Sticky Fingers later this month.
The version was said to have been recorded during a birthday party for Keith Richards and saxophone player Bobby Keys and has been cleaned up for the reissue. The cut also features Al Kooper on piano in place of Ian Stewart, whose version appears on Sticky Fingers.
Keith Richards has revealed his desire to make another Stones album - adding to Mick Jagger's similar statement this week - and also spoke about the possibility of a new solo album.
They’ve just announced their first North American tour in nearly a decade, but Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is keen for the band to take on more work. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine (confusingly…), the rock legend wants them to record a new album.
The 71 year old guitarist revealed that “we're talking about doing some recording after this tour, but there's nothing definite. We just threw out the idea. I'd like to get the boys back in the studio again, yeah. Anything can happen.”

They last performed in the US and Canada in 2006's 'A Bigger Bang' tour.
The Rolling Stones are set to hit the road yet again, this time re-visiting the States for the first time in nine years on their 15-date Zip Code tour. The veteran rockers will be performing everywhere from San Diego to Quebec in this North American bonanza.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood will be performing at some of the biggest stadiums in the US and Canada on their forthcoming Summer tour which will run from May to July; kicking off at San Diego's Petco Park and wrapping up in Quebec with Le Festival D'Été de Québec, tickets for which will be available in April.

The legendary rocker collaborated with his 29 year-old daughter, Theodora, on the picture book.
Many fans were very shocked to learn that legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards was going to become an author of a children's books, but what they didn't realize was the significance of the story being told.
Richards' children's book was inspired by his grandfather
Richards' picture book for infants, titled 'Gus and Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar,' was a family collaboration as his eldest daughter Theodora Richards, who is an artist, drew all the illustrations.
Keith Richards isn't the only celebrity to write a children's book, check out these other celebrity authors who have dabbled in children's literature.
OK, so Keith Richards has released a children’s book called ‘Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar’, which was inspired by his own childhood and first experiences with music. There are lots of things that we think of Keith Richards as being, a children’s author is certainly not one. That said, we’re sure that the book will be magical and the sneak peek at illustrations indicate they will be beautiful, but it’s got us thinking about which other celebrities have written children’s books. And wow. You would not believe some of the celebs that have!
Keith Richards Has Penned A Children's Book
Bill Cosby wrote a book for children. Yep, the Bill Cosby, from The Cosby Show fame. The one who is always been accused of being inappropriate in a manner of ways. Cosby’s book is called ‘The Day I Was Rich’ and purports to teach children the value of friendship over money. When Little Bill (nothing Freudian to see here) discovers what he thinks is a huge diamond, which turns out to be a glass paperweight, he and friends are momentarily deflated before returning to the fun they had before they discovered the ‘treasure’. Heartwarming stuff.
The legendary guitarist has collaborated with his artist daughter to create a children's book, which is inspired by his grandfather first introducing him to music.
The Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards is now a children's book author?
Keith Richards has partnered with his daughter Theodora Richards, who is an artist, to create a picture book for infants.
The 70 year-old's new project is titled, 'Gus and Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar', and it is slated hit the book stores this fall.

The Rolling Stones rocker moves into children's publishing with the help of his daughter.
Keith Richards is to publish a book for children which is due to be released this autumn. The Rolling Stones guitarist has teamed up with his daughter, Theodora Richards, to produce an autobiographical book aimed at children. Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar will detail Richards' relationship with his grandfather Theodore Augustus Dupree.
Keith Richards Is Publishing A Children's Book.
Known as Gus, Richards' grandfather was in a jazz big band and introduced Keith to music at a young age. Richards' artist daughter was named after Gus and will illustrate the upcoming book. "To be able to explore my father's relationship with his grandfather was a gift in itself," she said in a statement, via the LA Times. "The things that I've learnt during this whole process have just been life affirming."
The 'Rolling Stones' rocker has flatly refused to turn his life into a book.
Mick Jagger has once again refused to write a memoir to detail the events of his colourful life to the world. The Rolling Stones' frontman has explained that he has lots of other projects he'd rather focus on and would "rather be doing something new" than revisiting memories from long ago.
Mick Jagger Is Not Planning A Memoir. Full Stop.
The 70 year-old rocker bluntly told THR that a memoir wasn't something he'd want to make money from: "If someone wants to know what I did in 1965, they can look it up on Wikipedia without even spending any money," he said. "I think the rock'n'roll memoir is a glutted market," Jagger revealed, adding "I'd rather be making new films, making new music, be touring."

When Rick Hall opened up his record studio FAME Studios in the small town of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, it became something of a rock 'n' roll myth when some of the finest music ever written began to pour out of it. Hits from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Percy Sledge, Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding became international, and Hall even managed blur the distinction between white and black a little as his all-white session group, The Swampers, became deeply respected among the funk and soul artists. After the session group separated themselves from Hall, some of them set up their own studio, the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, and became the Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section. From here, musicians began to shine their brightest as The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan all left that town as legends as if enchanted by the beauty of Muscle Shoals.

The Rolling Stones' frontman Mick Jagger has finally hit 70 but there's plenty of life in the old stone yet.
Friday 26th July 2013: 70 years of planetary life for the illustrious Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger as he celebrates becoming a septuagenarian. After an energetic Glastonbury performance back in June and a whole host of rock 'n' roll activities - not least dinner with Nick Clegg - hitting the headlines, The Stones have shown that they can still capture the interest of the media and convert a tonne more young fans for themselves despite having formed 51 years ago in 1962.
Jagger: Why Give Up When You Can Look Good Doing This?
After Glastonbury there was no time to sit down, hang up the bandanas and nestle into a future filled with colostomy bags and porcelain dentures. Instead, the band looked forward to two more mega headline sets in London's Hyde Park on 6th and 13th July to mark the close of their 50th anniversary tour and record some live tracks.

Adam Levine, the lead singer of Maroon 5, is engaged to Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo. He seems to be following in the footsteps of Mick Jagger, The Rolling Stones frontman who is renowned for his relationships with models.
Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine is engaged to Behati Prinsloo. His representative confirmed their engagement in a statement issued on Tuesday 16th July. The statement, made to People magazine, reads: "Adam Levine and his girlfriend Behati Prinsloo are excited to announce they are engaged to be married"

The couple started dating in May 2012 but separated earlier this year. It's come as something of a surprise when Levine proposed to Prinsloo over the weekend. It's certainly a romantic story with such a spontaneous demonstration of love. However, the singer's involvement with Behati is somewhat cliché.
The Crossroads Guitar Festival hit Madison Square Garden in April this year with tickets selling out in the blink of an eye. It's no wonder either, with some of the best guitarists in music history making up the line-up at the 2013 event including the Allman Brothers Band, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Keith Urban, Gary Clark Jr., Vince Gill, John Mayer and, of course, festival organiser Eric Clapton. Clapton has been curating this event since 2004 with talent-filled festival taking place every 3 years in aid of the Crossroads Center Antigua - a private drug rehabilitation centre founded by the artist himself.
The Rolling Stones returned to the spot of perhaps their most historic gig on Saturday; Hyde Park.
It sounds frankly ridiculous to suggest the Rolling Stones should be taken seriously, though thanks to the ageism levelled at the band in recent months you would have been forgiven for assuming Mick Jagger was going to be wheeled on-stage at Glastonbury burning £20 notes and playing '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' over, and over, and over, and over.
Of course, Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts made a mockery of the sceptics and delivered one of the most explosive and entertaining Glastonbury sets in years. The Sunday papers were awash with five-star reviews, greatest hits albums flew off the shelves, everyone LOVED the Stones again - but Hyde Park was still to come.
Delighting 65,000 fans in London on Saturday (July 6), The Stones just about managed to clutch onto their tag as the world's greatest rock n' roll band with an unstoppable setlist that included 'Paint It Black,' 'Gimmie Shelter,' 'Sympathy for the Devil,' 'Midnight Rambler' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want.'

Ever seen more expensive hair?
A measly lock of Mick Jagger’s hair has been sold for an incredible £4,000. That would be ridiculous enough, but the news is: it was sold for around 4 times more than his bandmate, Keith Richards’ hair.
According to The Guardian, the Rolling Stone's former girlfriend Chrissie Shrimpton sold the hair to raise money for the Changing Faces charity, which works with people who have suffered facial disfigurements. A set of handwritten lyrics by British singer David Bowie for his song "The Jean Genie" also sold for £18,750 at the auction where a guitar owned by rock group Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page also sold for £26,250 alongside other music, film and entertainment memorabilia. Jagger recently played Glasto with The Stones, which will have no doubt upped the price of his product. "Festivals are great to be at, but not always the easiest things to play," he told the Radio Times before performing. "You've got to really work at that bit, but I think it's going to be a lot of fun. I've been working hard."
The band were responsible for one of the biggest crowds seen at the Pyramid Stage, where they headlined the festival on the Saturday night. They were on top form, giving the swelled audience all the hits they were craving. And all this while Jagger approaches his 70th birthday this month. Ridiculous. 70!

Johnny Depp turned 50 in June 2013. His career has spanned three decades and a wide range of genres. He has appeared in cult classics, Disney blockbusters and everything else in-between. 'The Lone Ranger', his latest film, has not been popular with critics. Some of his previous films have been equally ravaged whilst others have been highly acclaimed.
The Lone Ranger, not so much Johnny Depp's part in it, has been ravaged by critics worldwide. The star turned 50 on June 9th this year (2013). His career has spanned three decades, with his first major appearance occurring in 1984.

Depp's first major film role was in A Nightmare on Elm Street, the hugely successful 80's horror classic. Variety described the movie as "highly imaginative". Depp plays Glen Lantz, one of the teenagers stalked and killed by Freddie Kreuger in his dreams.
During an interview on the 'Today' programme, Mick Jagger revealed he thought about becoming a teacher, a journalist and a politician before 'The Rolling Stones' were formed.
Mick Jagger considered being a teacher, a politician and a journalist. 'Start Me Up' singer revealed his early career plans during a televised interview. Speaking on the Today programme, The Rolling Stones singer said a career as "a schoolteacher would have been very gratifying". Had the singer gone on to be a teacher he would have kept his families' tradition as both his father and grandfather were teachers.

The weather forecast for the Glastonbury Festival does not look overly promising: cloudy with occasional showers. Good news though: the sun will make an appearance, if only for short intervals.
The weather forecast for the Glastonbury Festival this weekend does not look brilliant: expect a lot of cloud. However, those visiting the Glastonbury Festival this year may be pleased (or rather not depending on your predisposition) to hear the traditional mud is likely to be back. Around 135,000 people attend the festival annually and this year is no exception. The festival site, located near the Somerset village of Pilton, opened its gates for early goers. Most slept in their cars overnight lying in wait to get a decent (probably on higher ground) site to set up camp.

In celebration of 50 years together, they are releasing a concert and behind-the-scenes footage movie entitled 'Charlie Is My Darling' which was filmed on their two day tour of Ireland in 1965, only weeks after they became a worldwide sensation with their hit single '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'.
