Keith Richards Talks Up His Jack White Recordings, Possible Rolling Stones Sessions

They’ve famously shared the concert stage, strumming guitars side by side at New York’s Beacon Theatre in the 2006 Rolling Stones concert film, ‘Shine a Light.’ But the collaborative relationship between Stones guitarist Keith Richards and indie-rock stud Jack White also extends to the studio — and Richards has no problem with the recordings they made three years ago reaching the public.

Ex-Rolling Stones Guitarist Mick Taylor Books Six-Night Run at New York’s Iridium Club

So far, the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones hasn’t amounted to much — unless you count Ron Wood talking out of school about recording sessions and the rumored return of Bill Wyman to the band.

Whether or not former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor will be included in any real anniversary activities remains to be seen. But this much is certain: Right now, he has the most concert dates in 2012 of any living past or present Stone — a six-night run this month at the Iridium club in Manhattan.

Ringo Starr Spews Details on Dealing With Preshow Jitters

There’s always a spring to 71-year-old Ringo Starr‘s step when he hits the concert stage, and the reason why is not something the former Beatles drummer acknowledges with pride.

Bad Company ‘Can’t Wait to Hit the Stage’ for First Tour of Mainland Europe Since 1975

Since 2008, the surviving members of the classic Bad Company lineup have occasionally regrouped to play shows in select parts of the world, such as the United States and Japan.

Mainland Europe was not part of Bad Co.’s itineraries — until this year.

Rolling Stones Jagger & Richards Remember Stage Crasher from ’81 Concert

When you’ve toured as much as the Rolling Stones, it can be really hard to differentiate one show from another. But the band’s gig on Dec. 18, 1981, in Hampton, Virginia — now available as ‘Hampton Coliseum (Live 1981),’ the second official Stones concert bootleg — was certainly memorable for Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.
