Mick comments on Facebook:

I am so looking forward to performing with some of the blues greats that are going to be @whitehouse PBS gig

It's a great line up of artists including BB King, @TheRealBuddyGuy @JeffBeckMusic and @BookerTJones

He doesn't mention: Wish Keith would be there!!!
He also probably didn't write that himself.eye rolling smiley

I guess the obvious thought would be that while Mick would be welcome at the Hubert Sumlin memorial show, Keith might not be welcome at the White House.
Why not, they've had gangata rappers their before haven't they? Keith is amodel citizen compared to some of the people that have been through there.

Thanks for this notice of the broadcast, C Eyes!

Side note: Does anyone know who took this photo of Mick on his website?
I think the series had some of the best shots of modern day Mick and the others.

Yes, I agree.
Unfortunately, I don't know who's the photographer, wherever I see these pictures there is no credit - just title "the promo photos of the Stones 2005"
That one on the Mick's website is absolutely the best but I like this one too

He doesnt mention 'wish Charlie and Ronnie would be there' either.

What's the point of announcing you're playing a show and then lamenting who isn't going to be present?

when you're invited to a party, you come or don't. If you do, then you shut up or sing according to who you are

Exactly. Some folks are acting like Mick is allowed to extend invitations to Keith or whoever else to join him at the White House; that is incredibly naive.

Because many people like to take everything for granted and only complain about what they don't have and/or what the Stones don't do.

that series is indeed from the start of the ABB tour, as proudmary noted, and as far as i know Steven Klein took 'em.
Mark Seliger took a bunch of the 2005 promo shots as well, but those "melancholy" portraits seem to be Klein's fine work

Mick will be singing Brown Sugar . . wonder what Michelle Obama's reaction will be.

Will she enjoy it or be insulted?

Let's hope he stays a bit more stationary. Perhaps he will serenade the First Family with Sweet Neo Con? That would be classic.

I would pay money to see Jagger wag his tongue at Michelle Obama while singing, "Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good?"

Dont think it will - Dylan's performance was on the website for a while afterwards, though.

This competition - Mick plays the blues here, Keith plays the blues out there - is so out of place! They are not a horses at the races.
Btw, it is hard to miss - a lot more people protesting Jagger appearence without Richards at the White House than Richards without Mick in Apollo.
I wonder, why is so?

I do not know, probably the two performances separately from each other was an accident. But the reluctance and even inability to be together on one stage speaks for itself.

Could it be that the old men splitted the duties? Probaly both gigs were known quite a long in advance, and they decided: "you go there, and I go here, okay?". It could be that Beck and Clapton made some similar decision (or they refused from the other gig.)

Like I said in that other thread, I find odd this strange demand that Mick and Keith should always perform together. Like having one is not good enough. It is the individuals there, not The Rolling Stones performing in neither of these occasions.

- Doxa



Perhaps the proximity of these concerts and the fact that both are a dedication to the blues leads me to these thoughts.
Okay, maybe I'm getting sentimental - but I would be happy to see them together at Apollo.

I'm getting nervous for him!! I bet he's got " butterflies" in his stomach, it's pretty hard to minimize the importance of this gig. I know he'll do a great job, and the President will gain new respect for his talent.

excuse me please while i barf...

*bluuuuuaaaahhhhhgggrrr*

i mean, i couldn't be more pleased that bb and buddy and booker t and the blues
are getting this kind of international publicity, and i'm thrilled that mick is once
again bestowing it, but as for the politicians in that room and their garish wives,
the best you can say about them is that occasionally they're a means to an end.

That's some head casing right there. You are getting nervous FOR Mick? HA HA HA HA HA! You are assuming the President doesn't have old or any respect for Jagger.

mannish boy
i got my mojo working

I dont think he has the guts, but if he would do it, i would like him again
