Dua Lipa & Mick Jagger?

Mick, Dua Lipa, 11-2022

There’s an article over at Billboard.com headlining “Here’s Why Fans Think Dua Lipa Is Hinting at a Possible Mick Jagger Collaboration – Does Dua’s future include even more nostalgia?”

So the article tells about pop star Dua Lipa, who posted photos of her and Mick in the studio last Saturday, where she probably recorded more music. So that could point to another collaboration with ‘nostalgia’ as she already had been working with Elton John before. There’s a pic showing her with Joni Mitchell, too…

Neither Mick nor Dua commented about this. Anyway, here are the two pics from Dua Lipa’s Instagram:

Nice find at Variety


Nice find: Mick Jagger’s Desire to Play Alex in ‘A Clockwork Orange’ Shared by Malcolm McDowell at Beatles Vs. Stones Extravaganza in Turin 

The Torino Film Festival, under the direction of Steve Della Casa, launched its 40th edition on Friday evening at the sumptuous Teatro Regio not with a film screening, but with an evening devoted to music. To evoke the links between cinema and music, a talk took place around the theme of the Beatles versus the Rolling Stones, and the bands’ love of cinema, which led them to work with Jean-Luc Godard and Martin Scorsese, among others.

Nice find, this! Go to variety.com, read the rest – some nice details about both bands…

Thanks to Steve [UC] for pointing this out

Greetings to Joe Walsh

Happy birthday, Joe Walsh!

Yup, Happy Birthday, guitar master Joe Walsh!

Lots of friends and famous people greeted Joe who celebrated his 75th birtday on Sunday, November 20.

On Facebook, we can see and hear the many different but always heartfelt greetings to Joe, among them right after Sheryl Crow Keith (at 1:30) and Ronnie (at 1:40).
Ronnie, BTW, greeted Joe “from the studio in LA” !

Happy birthday, Joe Walsh!I think, we all can guess what that means – the Stones are still in LA, working on the new album. Of course, that depends, when that greeting of Ronnie was recorded. But we can guess safely, that it was just recently.

Thanks for the tip, Steve – he sent me a note about this … watch the whole thing here on Facebook

And here’s Keith’s tweet:

RIP Jerry Lee Lewis

RIP Jerry Lee Lewis

Another serious blow hits the family!

By the age of 87, Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis finally has left the planet.

We will seriously miss him and we will never forget what we owe him: awe, deep repect and the highest amount of thankfulness you can think of because of all those Rock ‘n’ Roll classics he has left us with.

Just revisit this wonderful piece of history: Jerry Lee, the Killer, being honored and playing with Keith, Mick Fleetwood and Amy Lou Harris…

Yes, The Stones continue

Yes, The Stones continue

Touring has been very successful for The Rolling Stones during the last years.

During the last tours, the band visited the Europe (2018), US (2019, 2021) and Europe again (2022). Now, plans for the next tour are rumoured.

Possibly, they could start early next year with finishing their new studio album. After that, playing several gigs behind this would be a natural thing to expect. To promote the new album, they probably play shows in the US next year, during spring.

This is exciting! Shows in South America are also rumoured – the last time they played there was in 2016 and while we’re at it, Asia has seen the last shows of The Rolling Stones in 2014, so there are possibillities, too. In fact, the band could play at almost any place and at any time on this planet, with only very few exceptions like Russia and China maybe. Russia would welcome the Stones, but I’m pretty sure, they would not want to play there by now and China is just much more complicated to plan and negotiate whereas almost everywhere else, the red carpet for them is guarantied…


New album & tour!

Stones tongue on mural

The shouting increases!

Numerous sites echo the story about the plans of The Rolling Stones to finally release their new album and to add a tour next year!

Talk is of another world tour including dates in South America, the US and Europe. Simon Boyle from tabloid The Sun proudly writes “I CAN reveal The Rolling Stones plan to release a new record next summer.” Then, he repeats what we have already heared from Ronnie, but with more words… 😉

Apparently, the band had two weeks at (Electric Ladyland Studios?) in New York recently together with Darryl and Steve. Just as Ronnie had said.

The same good news can be read at yahoo!life, the DailyMail and elsewhere, even downunder perthnow.com.au jumped on the bandwagon …

Grrreat news indeed, folks!!

Shock! Ronnie talks about tour and new album!

Ronnie interview GBN

Ronnie on the telephone with british channel GBNews.

Well, GBNews is not particularly my favourite cup of tea, but in this case, it caught my eye. And my ears.

Ronnie is interviewed by Alastair Steward. While he, Ronnie, has just run an exhibition of some new series of his paintings at London’s Kenwood House (see Ronnies blog here for more on this), he is talking to Alastair about his art.

Of course, he’s asked about music, too. And there you have it. Although the sound quality of his telefone connection is really bad, you can clearly hear him answer to the question whether he thinks the gig in Berlin would have been the last time, he either doesn’t want to answer that or just misses the content. So Alastair insists by asking if he would see him again in Hyde Park or Paris or elsewhere? Ronnie said “Of course you will!

He continues by telling that they are working to finish the studio album that they “have been working on for years“, that they are “bringing that to an end” and that things go on really well now. They just came back from  New York and they’re “finishing it off in LA in a couple of weeks time” and he hopes they will have a “new package to bring” that will be the best for … and here he seems to have to count back until he continues … “the last fiveteen years, I recon” and closing it off by saying that “you will be seeing us live again in the next year, hopefully, too.

So here we go, folks. Let’s hope for the best. After all, a rolling stones gatheres no moss…

Here you go:
