Rolling Stones go through another tragedy… RIP L’ Wren Scott…

In the title of this topic, I said, “another tragedy” ’cause this is another one that the Rolling Stones have went through. The Rolling Stones was forced to postpone their overseas tour due to the sudden suicide of Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, L’Wren Scott who is also a fashion designer.

Just a friendly reminder to you all that the Rolling Stones went through a similar tragic incident in the past with Brian Jones, their former leader/founder. So is this de ja vu for them?

It’s sad. The Rolling Stones just landed in Perth, Australia earlier this week and the death of L’Wren just happened.

I was never much of a fan of the Rolling Stones but my heart goes out to Mick Jagger and the band. Sad and heartbreaking they have to go through something like this again.

The deaths of Brian Jones and L’Wren are oddly similar… both died mysteriously.


Report: David Bowie was asked to perform at Olympics but turned it down, not surprisingly…

Not surprisingly David Bowie was one of the musicians who was offered to perform at the Olympics closing ceremony, but of course, he turned it down. I’m sure they offered him millions of dollars, but he vowed not to perform again no matter how much they offered him. Is he really done with music? You will probably never get an answer of why he turned down the Olympics, ’cause him not wanting to be part of the music business remains to be a mystery. Maybe he’s not actually retired at all? Just taking a long vacation. Maybe he’s not ready to make a comeback to music? He never responded publicly on why he never made an album or toured. He’s been tight lipped about everything on his music career. Hopefully, he isn’t done for good. I pray someday he will announce a major comeback, but it probably won’t happen anytime soon.

The Rolling Stones, Kate Bush and The Sex Pistols also turned down offers for the Olympics Closing.

Congratulations to the Rolling Stones on 50 Years!!!

50 Years ago today, the Rolling Stones played their debut gig at the Marquee Club in London England, on July 12th, 1962. I’m not a really big Stones fan, but I love Keith Richards as a guitar player and I do respect their legacy. So congrats to the Rolling Stones on their 50 years. Incredible, they survived this long, and I don’t see them stopping anytime soon. Yes, I think they will get back together for a new album and tour, it’s only a matter of time. The only Rolling Stones music I own is their “40 Licks” Greatest Hits album, that’s probably all I’ll own by them. I won’t buy any of their full albums.

Here are a few of my favorite Stones songs in the videos below.


Report: Ronnie Wood says the Rolling Stones could be recording a new album soon…

The Rolling Stones may not be going on tour this year for their 50th Anniversary but instead, Ronnie Wood, says the band could be headed back to the studio soon for new music. The band is going to back into the studio this month just to throw ideas around and to see what happens. He explains that doing this is like training for the Olympics.

If the Stones do release a new album with new original material, this will be their first studio album with new music since 2005’s, “A Bigger Bang”. It’s been a long time since they put out a new album.

I’m no big Stones fan but I do like some of their songs. I just own their Greatest Hits album only. I wouldn’t buy their full albums. I do respect Keith Richards and the Stones legacy. I’m just not that crazy about Jagger’s singing, though. Keith is one of the best rock guitarists and I respect him.

Report: Did Mick and Keith finally bury the hatchet???

I did read Keith Richards’s book, “Life”, and yes, Keith did bash the hell out of Mick Jagger quite a lot in the book. Keith said some not very nice things about Mick in it. I believe the feud between Mick and Keith all started, was when Mick left the Rolling Stones to start a solo career, and Keith wasn’t happy about it. It was all ego between the two of those guys.

It looks they are going to bury the hatchet and maybe a Stones reunion would finally happen?

It’s great to see Keith wanting to patch things up in time for the 50th Anniversary. There can’t be a Rolling Stones without him, that’s for sure!


Report: Mick Jagger working on new material for new solo record with Eurythmics guitarist, Dave Stewart…

Ever since Mick Jagger’s surprising Grammy appearance, it made you wonder if he’ll ever return to music. It turns out that he is. It is reported he is working on a new solo record with Eurythmics guitarist, Dave Stewart. The Rolling Stones aren’t coming back sadly. So I’m sure this will shoot down speculation of a Stones comeback completely.

Read more on the story, here.

I’m pretty sure Mick will go on tour and of course, he probably will perform a bunch of Stones covers on tour. Hopefully Keith Richards will play guitar for one song on Mick’s new album? That might happen too, never know.
