Thanks to the Stones, the 50th Anniversary edition of New Orleans Jazzfest will be 8 days this year, with an added day this Thursday, the first weekend.
Of course, the Stones will regrettably not be there, but I suspect that more than a few artists will be making a nod to what may have been by covering a song or two.
Irma Thomas doing "Time Is On My Side" is a given. I wouldn't mind seeing Steve Earle play "Honky Tonk Women". Ivan Neville's Dumpstafunk could do a great version of "(Don't Wanna Be Your) Slave". Leon Bridges could pull off "Midnight Rambler". Widespread Panic will probably play a medley of some sort. Perhaps if they get enough covers, some sort of "The Best Of The Rolling Stones At Jazzfest" tribute compilation could be released.
Which performers from this year's festival would you like to see cover a Stones song, and which tunes?
Have they announced who's replacing
Fleetwood Mac now that they've also cancelled
I remembered something else Irma Thomas mentioned when she was sending her well wishes to Mick. She said that one other thing they shared besides the song is that they both have since had long careers, and that time has truly been on both of their sides.
Web site has TOM JONES! as top of the bill, was he booked on the same day as the stones?
pretty sure old tom used to include Honkytonk women in his set back in the 80's
Sir Tom gives it the full vegas treatment....this will make you smile and gringe
It was so hot and humid during this set.
I was soaked in sweat.
I think Mick would have melted if they actually played this day.
