Rolling Stones: Celebs Rumors


A senior moment: The Rolling Stones to rock with AARP on 2024 tour

Mick Jagger, 80; Keith Richards, who turns 80 Dec. 18; and Ronnie Wood, 76, are throwing in with the American Association of Retired Persons as the sponsor of their Stones Tour ’24 Hackney Diamonds, which kicks off April 28 in Houston.The two-month stadium trek — which includes a headlining show at the New Orleans Jazz Fest on May 2 and a MetLife Stadium stop in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on May 23, before wrapping up in Santa Clara, California on July 17 — is behind the Stones’ new album “Hackney Diamonds.”The band released its first LP of original material since 2005’s “A Bigger Bang” — and its first since the 2021 death of beloved drummer Charlie Watts — in October.Reflecting on the 18 years since their last album of new material in September, Jagger quipped, “We’ve been very lazy.”But, he added, “We didn’t want to make just any record and put it out … Before we went in [to make ‘Hackney Diamonds’], we all said, ‘We’ve got to make a record that we really love ourselves.’ Other people may like it, other people may not.

Rolling Stones’ ‘Hackney Diamonds’ review: A nostalgic, stomping victory lap
The Rolling Stones put out an album of new material — 2005’s “A Bigger Bang” — it was all the way back in the pre-Taylor Swift era.In the interim, the pop superstar has dropped 10 studio LPs — and rocked the music world the way the Stones once did in the 1960s and ’70s — while the legendary British band has released exactly one: 2016’s “Blue & Lonesome,” a collection of blues covers.Although the Stones continued to tour — and play the hits that everybody comes to hear — it certainly seemed as if they had given up on making original music and would ride those classics into the inevitable sunset.But perhaps jolted by the death of founding drummer Charlie Watts in 2021, the Stones are back with — dare I say it — a bang on “Hackney Diamonds,” out on Friday.With the band enlisting Grammy-winning producer Andrew Watt — a top studio gun for everyone from Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa to Justin Bieber and Post Malone — you might be worried that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood are making one last desperate attempt at the pop charts.Thankfully, that’s not the case. (And to his credit, Watt, 32, has some rock bonafides, too, having also produced Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.)“Hackney Diamonds” — which takes its title from the Hackney district in East London — feels like classic Stones, even if it’s not up to the gems of yesteryear.
Cat Power shares cover of The Rolling Stones’ ‘You Got The Silver’
Cat Power has shared a cover of The Rolling Stones’ classic hit, ‘You Got The Silver’ – listen to it below.The song featured on The Stones’ 1969 album ‘Let It Bleed’ and was the band’s first song to feature Keith Richards on lead vocals. A Mick Jagger version was also recorded, but the band released Richards’ version on the album.Cat Power shared a new covers album earlier this year, but the Stones’ cover did not feature on that.Check out the song here:‘Covers’ was released on January 14 via Domino, and featured renditions of songs by the likes of Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Billie Holiday and more.Power released a version of Frank Ocean’s 2012 track ‘Bad Religion’ to announce the album, which she also performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden last year.In a statement, the singer revealed that the ‘Bad Religion’ cover originated when she started pulling lyrics out from the track to incorporate into her own song ‘In Your Face’ while performing live, in order to distance herself from the pain of the track.“That song was bringing me down,” she said, “so I started pulling out lyrics from ‘Bad Religion’ and singing those instead of getting super depressed.“Performing covers is a very enjoyable way to do something that feels natural to me when it comes to making music.”In recent years, Cat Power has also covered Rihanna’s ‘Stay’, released a cover of Cassius‘ 2006 single ‘Toop Toop’ as a tribute to member Philippe Zdar on the first anniversary of his passing, and collaborated with Lana Del Rey.Reviewing ‘Covers’, NME said: “Often, cover records are dismissed as simply a bit of fun or as an indulgent aside to an artists’ original output, but when Cat Power does it, it’s nothing less than soul-nourishing.”
