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 Rolling Stones' frontman was in a long term relationship with the fashion designer at the time of her death last year.
Mick Jagger has found a fitting way to honour his late girlfriend L'Wren Scott, by helping establish a fashion scholarship fund in the designer’s name. The 71 year old frontman made the donation to London's Central Saint Martins college, where the scholarship will benefit students.

With an appropriately jarring sense of energy, this James Brown biopic acutely captures the Godfather of Soul's iconic musical talents, although the fragmented script undermines any emotional kick in his story. The film also struggles to build up momentum, because it continually leaps between various chapters in Brown's life. Which means that it never quite connects these disparate episodes into one coherent narrative. Even so, Chadwick Boseman delivers an electrically charged central performance.
Boseman plays James from the time he was 16, thrown into prison for stealing a suit in 1949, until his comeback in the 1990s. Raised in a brothel run by his Aunt Honey (Octavia Spencer) after his parents (Viola Davis and Lennie James) abandoned him, James is in prison when he meets visiting gospel singer Bobby Byrd (Nelsan Ellis), who takes him in on his release. Together they form The Famous Flames, gaining small-time success as James catches the eye of a manager (Dan Aykroyd), a record executive (Fred Melamed) and the public. A string of major hits followed in the 1950s and 60s, then James went solo in the 70s before the usual issues of fame caught up with him: money, drugs and guns. But he returned to the stage in the 1990s.
The film completely skips over his Hollywood years in the 80s, which wouldn't be a problem if the decade was so notably missing from the film. As the story skips back and forth through the years, the audience is forced to make sense of the disparate scenes, filling in several holes along the way. Aside from one rather surreal scene in a Southern Gospel church, there's never much of a sense of how Brown found his voice or developed his inimitable style. It also never quite captures his impact on the music industry as a whole.

James Brown's incredible Apollo revue remembered by Mick Jagger and Dan Aykroyd.
James Brown is well-known as one of the greatest American entertainers of all time and his brand new biopic, 'Get On Up' starring Chadwick Boseman displays some of the most memorable moments in his life - most notably, his 1960s show at Harlem's Apollo theater.
Chadwick Boseman stars as dance pioneer James Brown in 'Get On Up'
Star Dan Aykroyd, who plays James Brown's manager Ben Bart in the film, describes his own experience of the hit Apollo show; a non-stop revue that brought him worldwide acclaim and recognition when it was recorded for his 1963 live album 'Live At The Apollo'. 'I remember it, when the show started, James came out and then you had four other dancing girls, then you had two timpani players and then there were probably 25 people on stage', Aykroyd recalls. 'It just never stopped. Then it went into 'Sex Machine'; it just ripped the roof off the place and tore everybody's hair out.'

The cast and crew of forthcoming James Brown biopic 'Get On Up' talk about the legacy of the pioneering entertainer and the impact he had following his spectacular live show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem which was subsequently transposed to his 1963 live album entitled 'Live At The Apollo'.

The Rolling Stones rocker was recruited to get the jokes rolling before curtains up.
Mick Jagger has starred in a promotional video for the upcoming Monty Python live shows, the first of which will be held tonight at London's O2 venue. The Rolling Stones rocker displays his witty sense of humour as well as his ability to laugh at himself by dismissing the Python troupe as "a bunch of wrinkly old men."
Jagger is shown sitting on his sofa with drummer Charlie Watts watching the World Cup before discussing Python's reunion. "Monty Python? Are they still going?" he asks in mock amazement. "Who wants to see that again? It was funny in the Sixties."
When an aide tells him that tickets for the first gig at London's O2 arena sold out in 40 seconds, Jagger replies "Wow. They must be coining it in. That's pretty amazing," adding "But they're still a bunch of wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth and make a load of money. I mean, the best one died years ago!"

L'wren Scott's sister Jan Shane has slammed Mick Jagger's behaviour, claiming he was a "bigger part of her [sister's] troubles."
L’wren Scott’s sister, who was estranged from the fashion designer before her death, has a few choice words for Mick Jagger. 53-year-old Jan Shane has been quite vocal since the Rolling Stone began to be photographed with a bevy of beautiful women less than three months after Scott's suicide. “The more I think about it, the angrier it makes me. My sister deserves more respect. I now believe that he was a bigger part of her troubles than we knew about,” Shane told the Daily Mirror.
L'Wren Scott's sister has slammed the 70-year-old rocker for moving on less than three months after the death of the designer
Shane’s comments come after Jagger was photographed on a balcony with 27-year-old ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick. Hamrick appeared to be wearing one of Jagger’s t-shirts as she leaned over the 70-year-old rocker.

Bar Rafaeli and her boyfriend have allegedly split up because she was dancing too close to Mick Jagger. Because that's not an overreaction.
At 70 year of age Mick Jagger is still as much of a lothario today as he was back in the days when he was a young playboy! Since the tragic death of Jagger’s girlfriend, L’wren Scott, nearly three months ago the rocker has been recovering the only way that he knows how. Lots of partying and lots of girls.
Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger has been up to his old tricks
The Rolling Stones are currently on tour in Israel, where Jagger was pictured a few days ago posing with Israeli model Noa Tishby following a gig in Tel Aviv. Just days beforehand Jagger had been snapped on the balcony of his hotel in Zurich with a pretty young brunette, who appeared to be wearing one of his t-shirts. Suspicious!
Mick Jagger has been photographed with two young brunettes in recent days. Who is Noa Tishby, the model who posted a photo of the pair on her Instagram account?
Eleven weeks after the death of his girlfriend L’Wren Scott, 70-year-old Mick Jagger has been photographed with Israeli model Noa Tishby. The picture of the pair was posted by stunning Tishby on her Instagram and Twitter accounts after a Rolling Stones gig in Tel Aviv. Tishby captioned the photo: “There’s no way to post a picture like this without feeling a little douchy.”
37-year-old Tishby is a former Israeli soap star, who landed a role on soap opera Ramat Aviv Gimmel after graduating from Tel Aviv’s National Museum of Arts. She released an album called “Nona” which was the first English-spoken album by an Israeli artist. After moving to the United States, Tishby starred in Michael Bay’s movie The Island alongside Hollywood big names Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johannson. She also landed leading roles in a couple of indie movies, Fatwa and Connecting Dots before appearing on television shows including NCIS, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Nip/Tuck and Star Trek: Enterprise. Her most recent movie appearance was in The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past with Matthew McConaughey (a film made in 2009, or pre-McConaissance, if you've not already guessed from the title).
Mick Jagger takes photograph with woman, ignites controversy online.
Mick Jagger has been photographed with another beautiful woman and online media outlets are all over it. After The Rolling Stones played in Tel Aviv this week, Jagger apparently spent some time with Israeli model Noa Tishby. She later posted a shot of herself with the aging rocker to her Instagram account.
“Thank you @mickjagger for amazing few days in Israel,” she gushed after seeing the band play in Tel Aviv last week. “Thank you for showing us all how to rock it like a legend.”
After several photographs showed the 70 year-old singer enjoying the company of a young brunette women, his former love's sister was infuriated: "And people wonder why L'Wren was so depressed?"
The sister of the late L'Wren Scott isn't happy with the recent behaviour of Mick Jagger.
The Rolling Stones frontman has angered the sibling of his former love after he was photographed with a mystery young brunette women in a Swiss hotel last weekend.
The unknown female can be seen kissing the back of Jagger's head on the penthouse suite balcony in Zurich, during the band's '14 On Fire' European tour.
Is Mick Jagger moving on? And is that a bad thing?
Three months after L’Wren Scott’s tragic death, attributed to suicide, Mick Jagger may be moving on from life as a grieving boyfriend. Last weekend, several pictures made the rounds online, showing The Rolling Stones frontman getting cozy with a young brunette at a Swiss hotel. The photos show the mystery woman kissing the back of his head on the penthouse suite balcony they shared in Zurich during the band’s "14 On Fire" European tour.
Mr. Moving On? Has Jagger found hope in a new relationship?
While the media has been unusually reluctant to pass judgment this time, it looks like someone else might.
Who cleaned toilets, who killed cows, who worked at the gap? Some of these musicians had unenviable pre fame jobs…
Everybody’s got to earn a living somehow and when you're an aspiring rock star you might end up having to take a few bad jobs along the way to pay the bills. Take these 10 for example, who certainly learnt the meaning of a hard day’s work before finding fame.

Mick Jagger - Who'd have thought that fine art could be created out of something as butch as a hammer and a bunch of nails? But that's exactly what former architect David Foster has achieved with his unique nail portraits. David's art covers a range of subjects such as celebrities, animals, flowers and, get this, even a hammer and nail! The level of precision and realism in his art is a result of years of practicing and perfecting his technique. Thrilled with the simplicity of making a picture from just dots Foster says, "I have always been fascinated with how little information the brain needs to interpret a picture." On an average, his smaller drawings number about 5,000 nails, while larger ones can have as many as 30,000. David's prize winning piece made from 16,000 nails is called Lashes and Nails. David evidently loves what he does, going by what he tells us on his website. "The whole process thrills me, taking just a hammer and a box of nails and arranging them into an artwork. It is very tactile art and the viewer will find it hard not to touch the work," he writes. He also insists that the best way to view his work is up close, since photographs don't do much justice to it. - Warrington, Cheshire, United Kingdom - Friday 22nd November 2013
