January 17 - Happy Birthday, Mick Taylor!
=> Guitar virtuoso Mick turns 68 today, if I'm not mistaken! Thanks a million, Mick, for all the groove and licks and bends and melody, fills, great rhythm and even greater lead you gave to all of us!!!
Here's 'Winter' from Goats Head Soup and Mick's solo from 2000 - thx kleermaker1000 for uploading this to YT!
=> I guess you guessed right - I had a few days off... :-) Yes - some days less computer, more books and healthy walks through the cold, clear air. But now, I'm back.
=> What can we expect for 2017? We can be sure to get a new album and an european tour this year. Below you see some of the rumoured venues - there will be more. However, nothing more has surfaced since last month. The Stones are on holidays, too, but things will come to life back again soon. You'll get notice as soon as I hear about anything interesting. But I won't quote all rumours that fly around as most of them simply too far fetched. That won't happen to anything interesting, though, promised!
BTW - I very much thank you all for keep visiting my little Stones-site here through all the years! I'm really honored and very thankful to you and I hope, you'll keep coming back! :-) Here's a little spanish, SA "Thank You" for you folks, but only for a short while... enjoy! (right-click & save-as ...)
=> Ok, to start things up a little, have a nice, hilarious little read with this litte text here, called: "Keith Richards kept on shooting me"- wonderful! [thx Dough, Argus, sdb]
December 30 - Rumors become more concrete
=> Good news as the year winds down: Vienna/Austria is not officially confirmed, but almost! Austrian tabloid "Heute" knows, that there are 2 dates which may get set for 2 shows in Vienna: June 3 & 4. They also name three more dates for Paris (June 24), Oslo (July 1) and somewhere in the Netherlands on July 14. Here's article (german) ... more to come soon, I guess! ^^
December 17 - Tour rumors!
=> Tour rumours keep on rumbling. So far, there are 5 cities in the game with possible dates for June and July 2017: Oslo, Barcelona, Vienna, Nijmegen and Paris!
December 15 - Tour 2017!
=> Nothing official, but as we can see from "The Rolling Stones are planning a new world tour" (msn.com), the planing and negociating is still going on behind the curtans. Wether it's gonna be a world tour or only an european tour is still unknown. I would expect an european tour and the dates maybe next June and July (thx BV, iorr) ...
December 11 - Nice finds
=> Well, some of you may know 'em already, but I just feel lucky to see & hear them: really nicely done interviews!Mick:
About Ronnie: not only is he 7 years sober now, but because of his twin daughters, he's also got the power to quit smoking. Man, I really admire that. Keep it on, Ronnie! My deepest respekt!
=> Nice read: about Exhibitionism NYC and curator Ileen Gallagher: Re-creating Rolling Stones History - For the show "Exhibitionism", a curator brought together the band's artifacts and reconstructed the rooms where the Stones worked and lived.
December 7 - Stones are #1 / Interviews, new album & tour
=> Kristen Stewart makes the scene, too. Straight from the new Rolling Stones video for Ride 'Em On Down (see below), she's "No shoes, no bra, no f*cks" (marieclaire.com)
December 4 - Interviews, new album & tour
=> We can me asured about a new album next year and a tour! According to contactmusic.net, the Stones are in the planning for a tour next year: 'A source told The Sun: 'Mick will never lose that bug for performing. Next year is going to be a big one, but not just because fatherhood is looming once again. He's keen to go back on the road and play in huge stadiums, and some have already been secretly booked out in preparation for a possible show.''
=> Japanese agency TBS newseye has also interviewed all 4 Stones, but longer or less cut. So here are Mick (9:27), Keith (14:44), Charlie (11:56), and Ronnie (13:32)
December 3 - B&L
=> I can't help it. I love this band! Listening to the songs from B&L, I'm almost in tears. What a band! Are we fans LUCKY of what, for Chrissakes? "Unrepressed Rythm 'N' Blues with the unmitigating, ebulient, perturbing Rollin' Stones!". Period. 'nuf said. Let it roll! What a band ... (btw: why only 12 songs? Let the next 12-sets coming loosely as they happen, how 'bout that, Mick, Keith, Charlie, Ronnie?)
=> Ronnie tweeted sweetly about Blue&Lonesome with 2 thumbs up, hehehe
December 1 - Just 1 day to go
=> If you haven't heard it yet - the wait is nearly over! Tomorrow, the new Stones album Blue & Lonesome hits the stores and download sites. Reviews are really good so far!
=> Matt Wilkinson interviewd Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie for Apple Music:
=> Shaun Keaveny presents the 6 Music Rolling Stones Listening party today at 23:00 hours! He'll invite fans to pick classic Stones songs, play archive recordings, and build to midnight when he'll play the new all blues album Lonesome and Blues in full, sharing track by track reaction from the audience!
July 20, 2011 (and for eternity) - The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers And The Lost Photo Session
Ok, this comes a bit late. But since there are no more news about the possible gigs for Hide Park or anything like a tour in 2012 right now, I thought we could use the occasion and look back over yonder...
Recently, a treasure of photographs were discoverd after photographer Peter Webb's negatives went missing after shooting the Stones for that monster record "Sticky Fingers". Then, out of nowhere, they are re-discovered after a gap of almost 40 years. Let's have a look... oh man, have a look at Keith's eyes ...
