You gotta give it to the Rolling Stones; these guys never stop touring. And it looks like that hasn't changed, because the band's guitarist, Keith Richards, revealed that the group has a couple of live shows lined up in both London and New York.
Keith Richards has recently been allowing fans to submit questions for him to answer on his website. The audio answers provide interesting insight into the rocker's ideas and philosophies, and give fans a chance to hear stories by one of the more interesting rock voices.
We all have our fantasies about meeting our favorite rockers. They usually involve telling our heroes about how much their music has meant to us and gotten us through hard times. In turn, the rocker is so overwhelmed by the praise and asks us to join the tour as a member of the band’s entourage and you become best buddies forever.
The Rolling Stones are now enjoying their 50th year as a band, which is a long time for any group of musicians, so it should come as no surprise that with his age advancing that guitarist Keith Richards is getting a bit forgetful.
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.
A documentary that looks at the history of the blues through someone who saw its birth will soon be released on DVD. ‘Honeyboy and the History of the Blues‘ looks at the career of David ‘Honeyboy’ Edwards, who passed away in Chicago on August 29, 2011 at the age of 96.
It’s often been said that the only two things that will survive a nuclear war are cockroaches and Keith Richards. However, it’s possible that the Rolling Stones guitarist might not be in good enough health to tour in celebration of the band’s 50th anniversary this year, as had been reported last month.
While we wait for definitive word on whether the Rolling Stones will celebrate their 50th anniversary by going on tour this year, we can content ourselves with the band’s ongoing series of ‘official bootleg’ releases — and at least one of the band members is hitting the stage in the near future: Keith Richards, who’s performing at a benefit in honor of recently deceased guitar legend Hubert Sumlin.
