Wow, I didn't realize Merry lost both her legs in her accident last year :-(

I'm so glad they are giving her a special honor- still need to see the film '20 feet from Stardom'
God bless, sounds like a great foundation, hope the show is taped to view somehow, and very cool Cloudcat-

Shit really does happen. Keith has a kind heart don't you think, i'm listening to Exile, it takes the highs beyond high

Great guess.

My guess: Gimme Shelter, and perhaps one of the slower tunes from Crosseyed Heart.

That was my first thought too Cristiano, but I figured he would choose a second song which honored Ms. Clayton and/or the other honorees a bit more than Trouble. Of course his performing at all (and GS) is honor enough but I'm thinking he might go deeper with something with an honorable sentiment. Trouble isn't that.

That was my obvious choice because Trouble is the single, but I think you're right. Let's see what happens, though. grinning smiley

Keith Richards Honors Merry Clayton After Car Crash
By JOE COSCARELLI
OCT. 20, 2015

The session singer Merry Clayton, best known for her fire-starting vocal runs on the Rolling Stones’ song “Gimme Shelter,” was still reaching new highs when she was involved in a serious car accident last year.

Just a few months before the June 2014 crash, the film “20 Feet From Stardom,” which put backup singers including Ms. Clayton front and center, won an Academy Award for best documentary, after its Grammy victory for best music film.

“Oh my God, I was at the pinnacle — I was at the top of my game,” she said recently in her first interview since the accident. “I was overwhelmed at what had transpired with the film and then to just go out for a moment and in that moment your life is changed.”

More than a year later, Ms. Clayton, 66, is returning gradually to public view, having lost both her legs as a result of the accident. On Thursday, she will receive the Clark & Gwen Terry Award for Courage at the Jazz Foundation of America’s “A Great Night in Harlem” gala at the Apollo, where Sonny Rollins will also receive a lifetime achievement honor. Ms. Clayton will accept her award in a taped segment from her home in Los Angeles, while Keith Richards will note the occasion with a live performance of “Gimme Shelter,” the first track from the Stones’ 1969 album, “Let It Bleed.”

After five months in the hospital, Ms. Clayton has been undergoing what she called “intense therapy” in Los Angeles. “It’s been a lot of learning and a lot of adjusting,” she said by phone. “It was a rough one, but I’m from some strong, strong stock and from strong, strong believers.”

Raised as a gospel singer, she credited her faith — along with the support of her family; her manager, Alan Abrahams; and friends, like the record executive Lou Adler — with helping her recover. The Jazz Foundation and MusiCares, a charity affiliated with the Grammys for ailing musicians, also “came to the rescue immediately,” Ms. Clayton said, for instance, helping to add a stair lift to her house.

“It’s not an easy task, but I am just so determined,” Ms. Clayton said of her rehabilitation. “If I was determined enough to make it out of that hospital alive and better, I can certainly forge straight ahead.”

She said the gravity of her accident became clear to her only recently, when she saw something about prosthetics on television. “It finally hit me after maybe a year and a half,” Ms. Clayton said. “I stopped and I looked at this and said, ‘Oh my God, that’s me.’ ”

“One of my goals is to get back on my feet again,” she added. “My mind is good, my heart is good and hope is a wonderful thing.”

Ms. Clayton, who also sang backup for Ray Charles, Carole King and Neil Young, said Mr. Richards had called her recently to “dish the tea” about his performance at the Jazz Foundation event, proceeds from which will benefit the organization’s Musicians Emergency Fund. “He said, ‘Hello, darling, it’s Keith,’ ” she recalled. “Who else would be saying, ‘Hello, darling’ ”?

Beyond the tribute, new music is in the works, with a comeback project planned for next year, Ms. Clayton said. “I’ve always wanted to bless people with my voice because it’s my gift from God,” she said. “I’m still gorgeous, and guess what, I still have my voice. As long as I have my chops and I’m still looking wonderful, why should I go back?”

Yup, she’s still gorgeous indeed. Godspeed on the road to recovery.

Mick and Keith probably drew straws to determine who would be lucky enough perform at this event. Let's pray we can hear Merry sing Gimme Shelter on stage with Mick one day soon. More than Taylor’s abrupt departure, I’m baffled as to why she hasn’t been touring with the Stones for the last 40 years.

The director who did "Under the influence" also directed "20 feet from stardom" so it was a perfect fit for Keith to be there. Oh to be there.....

Keith pays tribute to Merry Clayton, and Mick is, so far as I know, still busy in Cuba negotiating a future Stones date. As Swayed1967 says, they probably drew straws - and I can't somehow see Keith negotiating in Cuba!

Mick has left Cuban shores. He was out painting London town red a week ago in the same venue as a fellow fan, who spotted him there and even exchanged a few words with him.

Quite so, and in fact spotted the following night too! The first night he was dancing in a restaurant (which doesn't actually have a dance floor) and the following night at an art exhibition. It should be said, he wasn't the only one dancing!

Well Keith has a Jamaican home not far from Cuba...just "over the pond" so to speak.
His skills at negotiating throughout the Caribbean should not be underestimated . winking smiley
