Rolling Stones happy with their documentary

23 December 2012 2:43 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, Dec 23: Director Brett Morgen is delighted that the legendary band Rolling Stones' members are happy with the documentary that he made on them.

Titled "Crossfire Hurricane", the film is liked by the band, which consists of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts.

"Mick turned to me at the premiere in London and said how much he loved the film. I had to pinch myself," thesun.co.uk quoted Morgen as saying.

The two-and-a-half-hour documentary is based on the band's journey from 1962 to 1981. Now Woods wants a sequel to it as he joined the band in 1975 and does not have much part in current movie.

Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood Marries Sally Humphreys

21 December 2012 3:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ronnie Wood wants to be Sally Humphreys' man for good. The 65-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist married his 34-year-old fiancée Friday at London's Dorchester Hotel, according to multiple reports. Faces mate Rod Stewart served as best man and the VIPs in attendance for the intimate ceremony included Stewart's wife, Penny Lancaster, and Sir Paul McCartney and wife Nancy Shevell. (Perhaps Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts don't do weddings.) This is Wood's third marriage and he has three grown children. He and Humphreys announced their engagment in October after about six months of dating, though they first crossed paths, per the bride, eight or nine years ago »

The Rolling Stones partied with Lady Gaga until 3am after their gig on Saturday night (15.12.12). The veteran rockers - made up of Sir Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Charlie Watts and Keith Richards - and the 'Born This Way' hitmaker enjoyed a 'relaxed' affair at The Carlyle Hotel, New York City, with 150 others following their collaboration at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. An insider told the New York Daily News newspaper: 'The party went from around midnight to almost 3am. They really just hung out, relaxed and all chatted with each other.'

The Rolling Stones Perform With Springsteen And Gaga

16 December 2012 6:44 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York — Only at a Rolling Stones concert could appearances by Bruce Springsteen and Lady Gaga seem almost like afterthoughts.

Those superstars and other top acts including the Black Keys and John Mayer jammed with the Stones on Saturday night, winding down a series of concerts celebrating the 50th year of rock's most enduring band (the occasion was also marked by a pay-per-view special).

The Boss rocked out with the band on out "Tumbling Dice"; Gaga matched Mick Jagger shimmy-for-shimmy on "Gimme Shelter"; the Black Keys joined on "Who Do You Love," and John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. showed their considerable guitar chops alongside Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood on "Goin' Down."

But the Stones would not be upstaged. While the sold-out crowd roared with each special guest, it was the aging but dynamic foursome that generated the most excitement of the night, as they put new energy into their decades-old catalog of hits, »

Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga & Bruce Springsteen Prep Gig

12 December 2012 7:43 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York -- Lady Gaga toned down? That's a possibility when she performs with the Rolling Stones on the final concert marking the band's 50th anniversary.

The avant-garde pop star is set to join the Stones Saturday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. But it may not be the colorful Gaga that audiences have come to expect.

"I think Mick (Jagger) said she wanted to do it without any of that (glitz and glam), which would be fun actually," says drummer Charlie Watts.

"But I don't mind if she dresses up in whatever. He does, so why shouldn't she?" he chuckled in an interview Tuesday, as Ronnie Wood joined in the laughter.

"I'll tell you, some of (Mick's) outfits are Lady Gaga," Watts continued.

"He's moating on the last song. He had this huge feather thing on," Wood said, referring to one of Jagger's onstage ensembles during the group's "50 and Counting" mini-tour, »

The Rolling Stones Keep Rolling

8 December 2012 8:58 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York — "Time Waits for No One," the Rolling Stones sang in 1974, but lately it's seemed like that grizzled quartet does indeed have some sort of exemption from the ravages of time.

At an average age of 68-plus years, the British rockers are clearly in fighting form, sounding tight, focused and truly ready for the spotlight at a rapturously received pair of London concerts last month.

On Saturday, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts hit New York for the first of three U.S. shows on their "50 and Counting" mini-tour, marking a mind-boggling half-century since the band first began playing its unique brand of blues-tinged rock.

And the three shows – Saturday's at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, then two in Newark, N.J., on Dec. 13 and 15 – aren't the only big dates on the agenda. Next week the Stones join a veritable who's who of British rock royalty and U. »

Just How Old Are These Guys?

27 November 2012 4:59 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York -- The Supreme Court used to be called Nine Old Men. That's nothing compared to the ageless Rolling Stones. The justices on average are the kid brothers and sisters of the forever young rock n' rollers.

The average age for the four living members of The Rolling Stones is about two years older than the nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood have an average age of 68 years and 297 days, while the Supreme Court justices' average is 66 years and 364 days. That makes the rock band one year and 10 months older than the members of the highest court of the United States.

The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with a five-date tour in New York, New Jersey and London, where the first show kicked off Sunday night.

Better With Age

26 November 2012 8:27 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

London — The verdict is in: The Rolling Stones are back. They may look old, but they still sound young.

That was the consensus Monday as Britain's rock critics responded to the Stones 50th anniversary bash Sunday night, the first of five shows to commemorate their half century of rhythm and blues-tinged rock. It was the band's first London performance in five years, and their own advancing years had led some to be skeptical that they could still perform at the highest level.

They were led by the seemingly ageless Mick Jagger, whose strutting style has not been dimmed, and backed by brilliant guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and the energetic drumming of Charlie Watts, who is now past 70 but shows no sign of slowing down. There was a stunning guest appearance by former Stone Mick Taylor, who stole the show during a searing performance of "Midnight Rambler" and a »

Noomi Rapace Goes Topless and Shoots Zombies in New Rolling Stones Video for Doom and Gloom

24 November 2012 12:10 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In honor of their 50th anniversary, The Rolling Stones have released another greatest hits compilation, Grrr!, which includes two new tracks; and the video for one of them, "Doom and Gloom," has hit the Internet featuring a very familiar face.

The video was directed by Jonas Jonas Åkerlund and stars total badass Noomi Rapace of Prometheus and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo fame. It also marks the first time that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood have been in the studio together for seven years. The single was recorded in Paris and touches on a lot of current issues like corporate greed and poverty, war, and fracking; and the video definitely gives Rapace a workout. She flashes her boobs, battles zombies, panhandles, pukes, and lots more!

Check it out below, and marvel at the fact that Mick and the boys may be senior citizens, but they're »

Watch: Star Noomi Goes Topless For Rolling Stones Video

21 November 2012 6:30 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

The Rolling Stones have recruited a Hollywood A-lister for their latest video, and persuaded her to go topless.

Watch The Video for 'Doom and Gloom' above.

For their well-received 'Gloom and Doom' song, 'Dragon Tattoo' star Noomi Rapace has done the honours of appearing in the video. And, seeing as it's the legendary rockers asking, it was only polite to cover herself in rubbish, smear blood all over her face, writhe around in money and then bare her chest.

Noomi Rapace gives it her all for the Stones in their new video

The chaps are, understandably, covered up, but Mick Jagger proves he's still got it going on, jiggling around with an impressive amount of energy for a pensioner, while Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood play on guitars. And Charlie Watts remains his usual unflappable self on drums.

One Direction reminds of Rolling Stones: Jagger

19 November 2012 3:43 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Los Angeles, Nov 20: Singer Mick Jagger says watching the band One Direction reminds him of his younger days with his own band Rolling Stones.

Jagger, 69 says his band, which consists of Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts besides him, was treated in a similar fashion the way British band One Direction is treated now days.

One Direction is a five−member band consisting of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik.

'Crossfire Hurricane': Keith Richards is embarrassed by Rolling Stones' album 'Satanic Majesty'

15 November 2012 1:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The voice at the other end of the line is unmistakable: garrulous, formed by decades of cigarettes, whiskey, drugs and singing.

Half an hour later another unmistakable voice is on the line. This one is silkier, a bit of a posh accent, and the debauched living isn't audible.

In separate conversations with Zap2it, Keith Richards, then Mick Jagger talk about their half-century -- yes, 50 years -- with the Rolling Stones, as featured in HBO's "Crossfire Hurricane" Thursday, Nov. 15.

It would be impossible to capture what the quintessential rock band means in a single documentary, and this tries in just under two hours. The result is uneven. It has some excellent concert footage and reminders of how the world has evolved over the years.

Initially, the Rolling Stones were threatening; the Beatles were the darlings, and the Stones were the bad boys. The footage of hostile newscasters alone makes this fun, »

Review: HBO's 'Crossfire Hurricane' an entertaining look at The Rolling Stones

15 November 2012 12:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Crossfire Hurricane," Brett Morgen's new documentary celebrating 50 years of The Rolling Stones (9 p.m., HBO), opens in intentionally disorienting fashion. First we're told that Morgen was able to interview all the surviving members of the band (including short-time lead guitarist Mick Taylor and retired bassist Bill Wyman, in addition to stalwarts Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood), but that he wasn't allowed to film the interview, so we hear disembodied voices (Jagger's voice instantly recognizable, the others much less so) over a black screen. We then cut to a Dick Cavett interview with Jagger in 1972, at »
