via stonesdoug:

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger having lunch at Filomena on Sunday.
Overheard saying, “We have a reservation for four,” with his “posh British
accent,” by one of our colleagues.

“He’s really cool, by the way,” confirmed Dino Jensen, executive director at the
Italian ristorante. While he couldn’t recall what the fashion icon was wearing,
he did describe his attire as “casual.”

Jagger’s party had the gnocchi with pesto, chicken al mattone, penne pasta and
pepperoni pizza. For dessert: the caramel eclair, tiramisu and strawberry
cheesecake.

Mick probably used "Mr President" when talking to Barack Obama but I wonder what the Prez said: "Mr Jagger" or "Mick"?

Mick has certainly shared the stage with Buddy and Jeff before, anyway!
Very exciting rehearsal photo, agreed.

The Rolling Stones, along with The Animals, Yardbirds were incredibly instrumental in bringing Blues to the white American teenager. Just ask Muddy Waters & Howling Wolf & BB King how their audiences changed after 1964. They all give The Stones credit.BB King commented that his last pure black aaaudience was around 1964 when he recorded LIVE AT THE REGAL..Muddy said that everything seemed to change after THe Stones played Little Red Rooster on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. Remember, the sound of young black america was SOUL & Motown by that point...James Brown, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Marvin Gaye..Etc....


Soulsurvivor

Exactly. Actually by the time Stones and the rest hit America with their blues message, the blues was already out of fashion among AfroAmericans. So the British helped to rebirth already dying form of music. The soul, early Motown, the names you mentioned, were the heartbeat of the new generation of black Americans. Even if not true, Keith's story of Muddy painting the ceiling is methophorically right. For example, Muddy's bio gives a good picture how the things started to get rough for the old blues masters by that time. The heyday of electric Chicago blues was the 50's when it seemingly touched the zeitgeist of black Americans. It could also that when the white kids started to dig the 'old' blues, and by the quidance of of people like Eric Clapton who approached the blues by a school boy attitude, that gave the last nail to coffin for black folks to find resonance to their souls in that genre. The story of he blues is rather different ever since when it was adopted not just by white audiences but also by white musicians. Of course, the great old black masters survived but the whole function the blues had changed quite effectively.

This is exacly a kind of thing I hoped for. It is exciting to see and hear Mick in that company. I have had enough hearing of Mick playing the blues with Keith and Ronnie, and I can assume how that is going to sound like (go and check SHINE A LIGHT with Buddy Guy), but this is something extraordinary. I actually looking for hearing some great music, and not just nostalgia and posing.

thumbs up

Besides, isn't that Jagger guy, 68, marvellous? Just think of the range of the things he does: he has a top three hit in the single charts in UK with one of the hottest music makers of the day that is exactly 'trendy' music at the moment. The kids are dancing to his moves and swaggers in the clubs.. He just made a team effort cross-genre album that is unique by its own terms... Now he is there in the White House playing the old blues with Buddy Guy and Jeff Beck... And this all before the 50th Anniversary thing by the Stones that, of course, is going to be a huge thing... oh yeah, and he worked some vaults stuff from 30 years old album somewhere along the way...

Is there anyone in the music universe who could do something similar? An unique guy, our Jagger... A miracle, the whole man...

I went through this thread before coming up with the question but I might have missed any mention of the exact time of this event. Anyway, as it is going to be live streamed, does anybody know at what time it will take place?

no we can't. quit trying to make this into an anti-keith thing. its a turn-off.

but i agree mick is doing a great job of expressing himself while the stones
get themselves sorted, one way or another

keith is the most important rock and roll composer in history. show some respect.

Oh Come On. This is a great thread about something great that Mick is gonna do. Let's keep it that way and, just for once, don't try to turn it into an anti-Keith thing. OK ?
