The world’s greatest rock and roll band is about to hit the road again.
Over the weekend, Keith Richards was a surprise guest at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in New York City, joining Clapton for a pair of songs. Keith played guitar and sang lead on the blues number “Key To The Highway,” and then announced, “Now we’re gonna rock it up!” With that, they launched into Chuck Berry’s “Sweet Little Rock and Roller.” Which got us thinking about all the great Chuck Berry covers that the Rolling Stones have put their spin on over the years. Here’s a few we’d love to see on the setlist for their upcoming string of U.S. shows.
At night 1 of Eric Clapton’s Crossroads festival, he opened the show with an acoustic set. So, on night 2 (April 13), fans showed up at the 7:30 pm start time in hopes of getting another early sighting of “Slowhand.” And indeed he did begin the show – albeit without a guitar.
Rolling Stones fans should mark their calendars. The band has given an official start date to its upcoming tour.
Rolling Stones fans had been waiting months for details about the band’s touring plans in 2013, and last week, the wait ended. The band revealed that the second leg of the 50 And Counting Tour would start within the next few weeks, and there’s no doubt that it’s going to be one of the hottest tickets of 2013.
Aaron Neville is a bit of a genre chameleon, recording albums in styles ranging from funk and R&B to country and gospel. For his latest, My True Story, he re-envisions doo-wop, but the album isn’t just a stylistic change musically. Instead of showing off his sizable biceps with his signature sleeveless t-shirts, Neville went all-in for the classic doo-wop vibe with suits, at least while promoting the new album.
New Orleans legend Aaron Neville has listened to doo-wop music for his entire life, but until today (January 22), he’d never released an album paying tribute to the genre. His latest effort, My True Story, is his first for Blue Note Records, and was produced by the label’s President, Don Was, along with Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones.
Tuesday (January 22) sees the release of Aaron Neville’s new album, My True Story. A collection of classic doo-wop numbers, Neville teamed up with a pretty heavy-duty production team for the album: Don Was and Keith Richards.
Just as many fans had hoped and suspected, The Rolling Stones’ barely-enough-to-be-considered-a-tour string of shows late last year won’t end there. The band confirmed that there will be another Stones tour in 2013, following up the five 50th anniversary shows in London and around NYC.
2012 saw the return of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Aerosmith and (sort of) Led Zeppelin. 2013 promises lots of great albums, films and tours from some of music’s greatest legends.
