Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Split: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin announced this week that they were splitting up.

The pair had reportedly been testing their separation for a year and finally decided to go public. In an entry on the Iron Man star's website, the couple explained that being parents to their two children was the priority for them right now.

Mick Jagger's list of female encounters must be nearly endless, but after decades of rock 'n' roll excess and promiscuous living there is one person that the rock legend flat out denies ever trying out his ever-successful pick up lines on: Katy Perry. Jagger had to jump on the defensive recently, stating that he never hit on an 18-year-old Perry, after the singer claimed that the Rolling Stones frontman made a pass at her.

Muscle Shoals Trailer


Muscle Shoals was just a town in Alabama with an extraordinary habit of producing some of the finest music in the world. It started out with Rick Hall and his FAME Studios, producing hits from the likes of Percy Sledge, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Etta James. And not only that, even at the heart of racial distinction in America, he found the ability to join both black and white in unity over the love of soul music. Even after Hall's session group split up, some of them went to name themselves The Swampers, later becoming known as the Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section when they opened the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. From here came legendary tunes from The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. So just what was it that made Muscle Shoals the must-be place for artist in the seventies?

The film, which is being shot entirely in Mississippi, will chart Brown's rise from severe poverty to become the Godfather of Soul. “Every frame will be shot in Mississippi. We’re even doing Paris, France, in Mississippi. … Vietnam, as well, in Mississippi,” Taylor explained on the film’s location. He was born in South Carolina and grew up in Georgia. Taylor said Mississippi provides a similar look because it is “on that same line of latitude.”

The Rolling Stones At Hyde Park: The Rockers Have Plenty More To Offer


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Mick Taylor Charlie Watts Ronnie Wood

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.'

The Rolling Stones have introduced themselves to a whole new generation in this past year, after the initial unavoidable buzz of the announcement that they were going to headline June's Glastonbury Festival. The excitement snowballed as the instantly sold-out festival drew nearer and boy, the Stones didn't disappoint. For a start they played a monster set lasting well over two hours but the collossal crowd were entertained by a choir, fireworks, the crazy shapes thrown by the gurning, dancing lead singer and a giant, fiery, scrap metal phoenix.

Additionally, a lock of the 69 year-old's hair has been sold at auction, fetching £4,000. According to the BBC, the lock of Jagger's hair came with a note that said "Mick Jagger's hair after being washed and trimmed by Chris at Rose Hill Farm" and was sold by his former girlfriend, Chrissie Shrimpton.

Mick Jaggers Hair Is Auctions For £4k – 4x More Than Keith Richards’


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones Keith Richards

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!

Could Rod Stewart Make A Better Rolling Stone Than Mick Jagger?


Rod Stewart Rolling Stones Mick Jagger

The Rolling Stones might have gotten a roaring reception at Glastonbury last weekend, but Rod Stewart thinks it could have been better. Specifinally, with him fronting. Or rather, Stewart is apparently thinking of drafting Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood for his own band, The Faces, should Jagger ever decide to hang up his mic. In a recent RadioTimes interview, the singer said: “I’d like to return with The Faces. Ronnie and I talk about it, and when the Stones finish – Mick is several years older than me – we’ll have a window of opportunity, if we’re not on Zimmers.”

Rod Stewart, The RDS
At 68, the singer isn't stopping anytime soon.

Stewart sounds like he’s pulling everyone’s leg with this one, but of course, you never know. For now though, the Stones are going strong, Jagger included. So the chances of Stewart replacing him? Slim to none. Yet the singer thinks his talent definitely gives him a bit of an edge: “Mick’s a fine blues singer – but technically not as good as me,” he commented. “He’s made the best of what he’s got. But I don’t think he could do standards – he may not want to.”

The Rolling Stones had one of the largest crowd Glastonbury had ever seen huddled in front of them when they took to the stage on Saturday (June 29) and it wasn't just Worthy Farm that saw a record audience because the BBC coverage of the performance was viewed literally by millions at home.

The historic performance brought in a record number of viewers; 2.6 million in all tuning in on BBC 2, with many more watching online. When the Rolling Stones played at Glastonbury last Saturday there was always a chance that something special was going to happen and believe it or not, it was a pretty memorable performance to say the least - as so many people will be able to vouch for. On average, 1.3 million viewers tuned in between 10.30pm and 1am - the time the band performed - and peaked at the 2.6 mil mark. That made it the second most viewed channel of the night, behind BBC 1, who were showing Die Hard with a Vengeance (the obvious choice). The performance also set a new record for the most number of viewers to ever tune in to any Glasto performance.

Rod Stewart: Modern Men Dress "Like Tramps"


Rod Stewart Mick Jagger Tom Jones

Rod Stewart's been in the press for a lot of odd things recently; firstly there was the secrecy surrounding his model train set that the BBC weren't allowed to see, then his voiced puzzlement at never been knighted and bizarrely, his supposed rejection of a threesome with Mick Jagger. Now, he's been reported by Radio Times to have branded modern men as "tramps" in the way they dress.

Rod Stewart: Clearly Still Got It But Is He Still With It?

There was a tinge of wistful nostalgia to the 68 year-old's words however - he didn't seem to be hitting out at guys who like to dress down - rather he was reminiscing for those rose-tinted 'good old days': "I hate the way men dress today. At the theatre it's all anoraks and shorts. You can even get into most restaurants without wearing trousers. I used to love dressing for dinner." He spoke of the plight of so many women to get their boyfriends to dress up, saying "You go to dinner and see beautifully dressed women with men like tramps wearing trainers, jeans and T-shirts."

'But All My Friends Have Got One!' - Rod Stewart Bemoans Lack Of Knighthood


Rod Stewart Mick Jagger Rolling Stones

Rod Stewart is miffed – he reckons he should has a Sir before his name, like his musical buddies Tom Jones and Mick Jagger do. But Rod, it’s not such a big deal – we didn’t even pop a Sir in front of their names just then.

Rod StewartRod Stewart 'doesn't care' if he gets a knighthood or not

“Mick doesn’t pay taxes here and Tom lives in America. If my time comes, it will. If it doesn’t, I’m not bothered,” he told Radio Times magazine. Thing is, saying your not bothered means only one thing: you’re very much bothered. “The Queen and I have one thing in common. The same hairstyle for 45 years,” he continued, suggesting that similar follicle aesthetics might in some way lead to a knighthood.

And that's it. Another year passes and Worthy Farm closes its gates on the Glastonbury Festival revellers for another 12 months. Though there's always the distant murmur of someone professing it "the best Glastonbury ever," there was a palpable feeling that this year's festival was among the finest in history. Firstly, there was heightened anticipation given the fallow year in 2012 and secondly, the sun came out. Oh, and The Rolling Stones made their debut, rollicking through a two-and-a-half-hour set on Saturday (June 29, 2013) and scoring five-star reviews across the board.

The surprise return of David Bowie in 2013 had left many commentators speculating on the possibility of the Thin White Duke headlining the legendary festival, though there was no lingering thoughts of "What if?" once Glastonbury got underway on Friday with a snappy set from Sheffield heroes Arctic Monkeys. Bowie became all but a moot point after Saturday, when Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and company played a career spanning set that included 'Jumping Jack Flash,' 'Tumbling Dice,' 'Start Me Up,' 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' 'Gimmie Shelter,' 'Doom and Gloom' and 'Midnight Rambler.' "The night belongs to the Stones. By turning on the charm as well as the formidable back catalogue, they prove themselves well worth the wait," said the Guardian's Dorian Lynskey.

Schoolboy Blues: Mick Jagger Wanted To Be A Teacher!

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.

Glastonbury Festival Weather 2013: Get Your Wellies On

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.

Mick Jagger's Obama Jibe Met With Boos During Washington Gig


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones

Mick Jagger's recent quip about the ongoing Edward Snowden scandal during a concert in Washington D.C. didn't go down quite as well as he'd hoped, with his comment about President Barrack Obama listening in on the concert being met with jeers from the crowd.

The band were performing at the Verizon Center in the capital on Monday night (June 24), with Jagger taking a pop at the on-going NSA surveillance scandal at the beginning of the concert. Luckily the rest of the performance wasn't as awkward. The frontman was chatting with the crowd whilst the rest of the band warmed up behind him, discussing past concerts in the capital and how former presidents and first ladies had come down to their shows in the past. He went on to jest, “I don’t think President Obama is here tonight, but I’m sure he’s listening in,” but few people managed to see the funny side as his comments were met largely with jeers. You can watch the video - courtesy of CBS News - below and see what you think.

Mick Jagger Put His Hair Up For Sale


Mick Jagger

At the age of 69, there are a number of men out there who would just be happy having hair on their head, but when you're a follically endowed as Mick Jagger then you can afford to give away some of your locks, and that's just what the dinosaur rocker is planning on doing.

Jagger plans on placing some of his locks up for auction at the British auction house Bonhams, who will place the locks of hair up for auction on July 3. Bonhams announced on their website that strands of Jagger's hair, cut from his head during the early 1960's, has been put up for auction by Chrissie Shrimpton, who dated Jagger before the Stone's heyday in the late 60's. The website says that the locks should fetch between $2,300 and $3,100 when it goes up to auction next month.

The auction house goes on to mention that Lot 20711 was first collected by Shrimpton's grandmother without Chrissie’s knowledge during a to the Shrimpton family's country estate. The auction house wrote on their website “Apparently, on her grandmother's death, the hair passed to Chrissie's aunt and when she died, the hair was returned to Chrissie by a cousin taking care of personal effects.”

Overpriced? Fans Snap Up Rolling Stones' Hyde Park Tickets In 3 Minutes


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Brian Jones Keith Richards

Tickets for The Rolling Stones' concert at Hyde Park this summer has sold out in just three minutes. According to The Telegraph, 65,000 tickets for show - part of Hyde Park's British Summer Times gigs - were completely sold out by 9.03am on Friday morning (April 5, 2013).

The Stones will play in London just days after they headline the Saturday night of the Glastonbury Festival on June 26. It's 44 years after the legendary rockers last played at Hyde Park in 1969, just two days after guitarist Brian Jones was found dead at his home in Hartford, East Sussex. As ever, the band were accused of exploiting fans with overpriced tickets and the cheapest for the Hyde Park show were £95.00. Many were priced at £299 while ticket marketplace Viagogo has already begun selling tickets for £1,097 each. A place in the coveted "Diamond Circle" area will cost you around 2,500.

"It seems like yesterday," guitarist Keith Richards told the BBC of the last time his group played Hyde Park, "It's going to be a great summer, man.All the gigs we haven't done or wanted to redo are popping up." At the original gig, Mick Jagger famously wore a white dress on stage and read a Percy Bysshe Shelley poem dedicated to Jones. Thousands of butterflies were released into the air.

David Bowie And Mick Jagger Found In Bed Together, Naked…


David Bowie Mick Jagger

It’s just headline gold; David Bowie and Mick Jagger getting found in bed together, by Bowie’s wife, completely naked. Unfortunatley, it didn’t happen this morning, last night, or even this decade… or even last decade. It actually happened in 1973, and there was nothing sexual in it. It wasn’t a sexual day.

“My assistant was laughing in the kitchen when I got home,” Angie Bowie – the singers’ ex-wife - explained to The Sun. “She said, ‘You won’t believe this. David and Mick Jagger’. I went upstairs and banged on the door and said, ‘Morning! Ready for breakfast boys? I walked into the bedroom and David was there with all these pillows and duvets on top of him and on the other side of the bed was Mick’s leg sticking out,” Angie continued. “I said: ‘Did you guys have a good night?’ They were so hungover they could hardly speak. I took pity on them.” Bowie recently returned from his lengthy spell of musical silence with two well received singles that came out of the blue.

Is The Cat Out Of The Bag? Rolling Stones To Headline Coachella Festival 2013?

Are The Rolling Stones lined up to headline Coachella Festival in 2013?

It looks as though the people that make the band’s official iPhone app may have just secretly leaked details of their plans for 2013. On Friday (December 14, 2012), the band’s app had details of a performance on April 12, 2013, at Indio, at the Coachella Festival, NME reports. Although the date was later removed, in the age of the screen grab, there’s no stopping news like that form going viral.

The last time the band performed at a festival was back in 2007, when they played at the Isle of Wight Festival and the fans of the band who have a ticket for Glastonbury Festival 2013 will probably still be holding out hope that Jagger & co. will still be announced as one of the UK festival’s main acts, too.

Mick Jagger Breaks Silence On Maroon 5's 'Moves Like Jagger'


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones David Letterman Maroon 5 Christina Aguilera Adam Levine Kesha Cher Lloyd

Mick Jagger has finally broken his silence on the subject of Maroon 5's number one hit 'Moves Like Jagger' and revealed that he didn't get paid anything for his reference in the song.

The Rolling Stones lead vocalist appeared for an interview on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and, to the viewers' amusement, produced a list entitled: 'Top Ten Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years In Rock 'n' Roll'. On the list was a light-hearted dig at Maroon 5's song 'Moves Like Jagger' featuring Christina Aguilera, the video of which begins with footage of Jagger in his younger years and later shows singer Adam Levine trying out some of the famous dance moves. Jagger had written on his list that he had learned that "You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger." The music legend also drew laughs from his other advice which included, "Be considerate of other hotel guests - trash your room by 10 pm" and, "Before shouting 'Hi Seattle!' make sure you're in Seattle."

'Moves Like Jagger' is not the first number one hit that has referenced the star; he has also been mentioned in Ke$ha's 'TiK ToK' ('We kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger') and Cher Lloyd's 'Swagger Jagger'. 

Rolling Stones Celebrate 50th Anniversary At New York Show


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Jay Z

The Rolling Stones performed their first show in Brooklyn in almost fifty years, celebrating their (wait for it) fiftieth anniversary together.

The veteran rockers hit Brooklyn's Barclay Centre to run through their extensive back catalogue, with frontman Mick Jagger eager to reflect on how long it had been since the band were last on stage in the New York City borough. Jagger was also keen to mention (jokingly) how the band arrived to the new complex, with the singer referencing a clip taken from Brooklynite Jay-Z's forthcoming documentary, during which the rapper talks to an old lady while on the subway on his way to perform at The Barclays Arena. He jested with the crowd, saying, "It's great to be here in Brooklyn, in this great new arena," said Jagger. "We rode the subway here, I sat next to a guy named Jay Zed…I mean Jay-Z."

As was the case with the groups massively successful shows at London's O2 Arena last month, the band had a few surprises under their sleeves for the eager crowd, and as was the case in London, Mary J Blige joined the rockers on stage to belt out the hit 'Gimme Shelter.' The band also brought out band were also joined by blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr and the Trinity Wall Street Choir to perform on 'Going Down' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' respectively.

Florence Welch And Rolling Stones Join Forces At Stones' O2 Gig


Florence Welch Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Mary J Blige Eric Clapton

Florence Welch was the latest surprise guest to appear on stage with dinosaur rockers The Rolling Stones during their run of shows at The O2 in London, when the Florence and the Machine front-woman joined Jagger and co on stage during last night's performance (Nov 29).

Welch joined the rock veterans on stage for a rendition of the classic hit 'Gimme Shelter,' with R&B heroine Mary J Blige also joining the Stones on stage for a surprise duet during their performance earlier this week. The headlining slots at the O2 didn't stop their with the treats either, as Eric Clapton also came on stage with the Stones for a rendition of 'Champagne And Reefer', with the guitar-god having been rumoured to appear long before he took to the stage.

The second, star-studded performance of the week saw frontman Mick Jagger immediately address the fine the band received after the earlier performance after the show overran. According to NME, Jagger joked with the crowd about the incident at the start of the show, saying "We had to pay £100,000 because we went on too long. That's like... Ten seats."

Old Friends Join The Rolling Stones For 50th Birthday Concert


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Ronnie Wood Charlie Watts Bill Wyman Mick Taylor Mary J Blige Noel Fielding

Last night at London’s O2 Arena (November 25, 2012), The Rolling Stones were joined onstage by old friends and newer ones, as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. The current mainstays of the band, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts welcomed the band’s original bass player, Bill Wyman to play ‘It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It)’ and ‘Honky Tonk Women.’ Mick Taylor, who was a member of the band between 1969 ad 1974 also had his moment in the limelight once more, when he joined them for a version of ‘Midnight Rambler.’

Mary J Blige also performed with the band, helping them out with ‘Gimme Shelter’ and later tweeted “So much fun performing in London w/ the ‪@RollingStones! Congrats on your 50th anniversary!! The response to the show, from those that were there, has been overwhelmingly positive. The Mighty Boosh comedian Noel Fielding told the BBC “I think Keith played incredibly. Sympathy For The Devil...his lead on that was absolutely amazing” and – always one to admire an elaborate costume - added “Mick came out in a cape which - as always - has got to be a bonus.”

In the lead up to the opening night of these 50th anniversary dates, much of the discussion surrounding The Stones’ concerts has been centered on the extortionate ticket prices. Jagger didn’t ignore it, joking to those at the back “How are you doing up in the cheap seats? Except they're not cheap seats, that's the problem.” Hopefully, everyone was having such a wonderful time that they were able to see the funny side.

Bill Wyman And Mick Taylor Lined Up To Reunite With Rolling Stones For O2 Gig


Rolling Stones Bill Wyman Mick Taylor Mick Jagger Ronnie Wood Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones are set to perform a string of shows at London's O2 Arena next week, and have announced that as a special treat there will be two special guests appearing on stage with them in the shape of former Stones members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

Former Stones bassist Wyman and guitarist Taylor will appear on stage with the dinosaur rockers during their shows on Sunday 25th and Thursday 29th November. This will be the first time since 1974 since the two have shared the stage with the rest of the band, but hopefully Ronnie Wood wont feel too left out during the reunion.

The remaining members - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Wood – have been inviting the two former members back to work together again over recent years, however the shows at the O2 will mark the first time in more than three decades since they have performed live together. Both Wyman and Taylor were interviewed in the recent official 50th anniversary documentary Crossfire Hurricane, in which both former members talked intimately about their time with the band and their reasons for leaving it all behind. Wyman called it quits in December 1992 to concentrate on his own work and personal life, whilst Taylor left the band in 1974. In Crosstown Hurricane Taylor admitted that his heroin addiction was at the root of his leaving of the band.

Love Letter Showing A Softer Side To 1960s Mick Jagger To Be Auctioned


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones

Mick Jagger. What a rock and roll rebel that fella was back in the 60s, doing his sex talk all over his Rolling Stones band mates' filthy guitar licks, putting his really long tongue out at regular intervals, wearing genitalia-enhancing tight jeans. Truly, he was a sexual predator.

Or was he? Love letters that have been dug out and put into the public domain suggest that the once hirsute rocker had a tender, caring side away from his public persona. According to The Guardian, letters sent to Australia to Marsha Hunt, his lover, first child's mother and the inspiration for Jagger's controversial song ‘Brown Sugar’ show the star’s softer personality. Indeed, he opened up a lot in the letters, revealing his love for the literature he was reading at the time: "toying" through Nijinsky's diaries, reading about Navajo Indians, enjoying the poems of Emily "Dix" (Dickinson).

10 of the letters are being sold at Sotherby’s auction house on December 12th and carry an estimate of minimum $110,000. But why would the letters’ recipient be selling them? "I'm broke” was the blunt answer from Hunt. She added: "Anyone who has the impression that I have money knows nothing about me. I had friends who came to visit from Pennsylvania and there was no electricity in the house because the bill had been too high, I was kind of grooving it with a wood burning stove. One friend said, 'surely you've got something you could sell?'"

REVIEW: What Do We Think Of New Rolling Stones Track 'One More Shot'?


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger

Does anyone really want to hear Mick Jagger doing sex talk at females aged 69? Quite a few apparently, given how quickly the Rolling Stones extortionate 50th anniversary concerts in New Jersey and London sold out for the end of this month. The London band release yet another greatest hits on Monday in the form of Grrr!, and the big news off that is that new track ‘One More Shot’ has been put up on the band’s official Youtube channel.

So what does it sound like? Like the Rolling Stones really, albeit with the cracked, knackered voice of Jagger over the top of it. Jagger has a message for his baby which has him “doing something he thought he never would do”. What could this be, we wonder? A trip to the moon? Working a night shift at Subway? Turns out it’s just asking the object of his desires to give him another shot and, hey, hopefully she’ll make her mind up soon because he isn’t getting any younger.

There’s not really any point comparing ‘One More Shot’ to the snarling youths that the Stones once were; the song rattles along pleasantly but with all the potency of a rubber hammer trying to knock down the Great Wall of China. Or are we being harsh? Listen below and tell us what you think:

The Rolling Stones Latest Single: One More Shot. Have A Listen!


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards

1000 points to whoever can name all the Rolling Stones singles. No? Well it's pretty hard. And now there's another one; the aging rockers have released their second new single off GRRR! - their greatest  hits album. 

Fittingly, the track is called One More Shot; a thinly veiled plea for fans to give The Stones just one more shot to relive those rock n' roll days, not that they need begging, that is. It follows the release of Doom and Gloom, which was a more rip-roaring effort. This is more melodic, yet still features the trademark Mick Jagger contortion act, as the ancient rocker sways and bends words into lines that seem impossible. One More Shot is a good rock song: of course it is, it's the Stones, but it does nothing new, rather recycles their tried and tested alchemy of saying baby, simple drums and a mellifluous rhythm section. Perhaps that's unfair though, as there's a certain twang of country underlying this song, but it's unmistakably, quintessentially The Rolling Stones. And for capturing that style again, and again, and again, you can have one more shot, guys. But this is the last one.

These two new tracks are the first time Keith Richards and Jagger have been in the studio for seven years, and their two-city strong tour, which is set to hit London and New York, has gained unprecedented attention and interest. Have a listen to the One More Shot below.

Londoners! Travel To The Rolling Stones' Tiny Paris Gig For Less Cash Than O2 Arena Shows


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones

So who shelled out $651 for a Rolling Stones ticket? Were you feeling fleeced then? Well you’re going to be feeling so even more now, after it was announced via the group’s Twitter that they’re to be playing a warm up show for their four forthcoming 50th anniversary gigs in Paris tonight. For $19. That’s right, the band are to play Paris’ small Trabendo theatre, which has a capacity of 700.

Their twitter message read: “Names will be printed on the tickets. On presentation of photo ID at the venue, ticket holders will receive a wristband. Doors open at 8 pm” adding "Mobile phones, cameras, video equipment and recording devices are strictly prohibited." The group had drawn criticism for putting tickets for their two shows at London’s O2 Arena at the end of November on sale at extortionate prices, with some VIP packages even going towards the thousands of dollars. Galling then that Parisians will be able to enjoy the leathery rockers for just a fraction of the price. In fact, we worked out that you could get a Eurostar from London to Paris and back, with the price of the gig ticket on top, for just over $420. Even with a hotel added on you’d still be paying less than the top tier general release tickets for the O2.

The retirement fundraisers are going to be playing a private gig on Monday (October 29, 2012) funded by Carmignac Gestion, for their employees. And they say rock n’ roll’s not dead.

Crossfire Hurricane Review


Good

Watching the Rolling Stones' home movies while they reminisce on the soundtrack is thoroughly entertaining, although this documentary is such an inside job that it doesn't really tell us anything we don't already know. Indeed, the Rolling Stones commissioned this film for their 50th anniversary, and while it doesn't shy away from showing their heyday of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll, it never gets into their personal lives at all. And it only covers the first half of their half-century.

As well-educated blues musicians on the London club scene, the Stones enjoyed reasonable success, but it wasn't until they were dubbed the "anti-Beatles" and set about to play on their anarchic images that they rocketed to global stardom, setting teen girls' hearts (and bladders) aflutter across Britain and America. But their bad-boy behaviour also got them into a lot of trouble. Guitarist Brian Jones dropped out of the band in 1969 (and drowned less than a month later), while his replacement Mick Taylor quit in 1974 due to drugs, replaced by Ronnie Wood. But the partying hit a low point with Keith Richards' arrest for heroin in 1977, after which they cleaned up their act. And their early 1980s tour was their biggest ever.

Oddly, the documentary suddenly ends here, making us wonder if this is just part 1. Although their successes since then have been a bit more sporadic, they would certainly provide some telling backstage moments. By contrast, much of the footage here (mainly in grainy black and white shot on Mick Jagger's own home movie camera) centres on the band goofing around in their down moments. It's edited in with lots of concert footage, so the soundtrack is like an early greatest hits collection. And there are also lively TV interviews done through the years. For narration, the filmmakers use audio recordings done specifically for this movie, with telling memories and witty commentary.

The Rolling Stones Reunite For One Last Tour: Is This The Most Anticipated Comeback Ever?


Mick Jagger

Well, The Rolling Stones tour is on; the band have announced performances on November 25th and 29th at London's O2 Arena and December 13th and 15th at Newark's Prudential Center for 50 and Counting . . . The Rolling Stones Live. Is this perhaps the most anticipated ‘last ever gig’?

Ticket prices would certainly suggest it is: starting at a Christmas present sized $98.50 to a gargantuan, obese $813 – a sum fit for platinum anniversaries and dying wishes, and the recipients of those would look out of place at a Rock ‘n Roll concert. It’s a classic, isn’t it? One last job; Mick Jagger is doing one last job, like Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven or Al Pacino in Heat. But is this what we’ve all been waiting for? Is this comeback tour the most anticipated ever? Well, Blur spring to mind, alongside fellow British 90’s superstars The Stone Roses, who both recently performed sell-out tours as the credits roll on their gigging days. Led Zeppelin, too; they’ve recently angered a lot of fans, and been riled up themselves, with their lack of reunification, but their last ever U.K gig was beamed to something like 20 million fans in cinemas, and the whole shebang is being made into a DVD for Zeppalites to savour forever. But do any of these really compare to Jagger et al cutting rough lines into the sky with their pure sex appeal? No.

A ticket for the Rolling Stones tour is officially the hottest, and the most expensive in town, unless you want to go to space with Richard Branson or buy an island, or something. Good luck getting one though, as they’ll sell out quicker than Glastonbury did. Hang on, The Rolling Stones at Glasto? For one last job!?
