New supergroup !
Posted by: steffiestones ()

Rock icons MICK JAGGER, DAVID BOWIE and ELTON JOHN are reportedly set to form a supergroup - to play at the London Olympics in 2012.
The Rolling Stones are slated to perform at the opening ceremony of the games - and Jagger is said to be keen to include other members of the rock aristocracy.
He wants to be joined on stage by Bowie and John, as well as Phil Collins, Sting, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour, and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.
The concert would be trumpeted as featuring the greatest rock "supergroup" of all time.
A source tells Britain's News of the World newspaper, "Mick feels the Olympics coming to London is a huge honour - and wants to make his own gesture with the band. It's early stages but Page, Bowie, and Morrison are already involved, although no-one is quite sure yet how the show will play out in its entirety.
"The Olympics people hope to use the template of the American football Super Bowl half-time show, where an artist takes over the field on a giant stage. Having the Stones on side for a project like this is a huge deal."

They should do that song Lennon produced for Mick: "Too Many Cooks."

It's a good thing they're planning things for their 50th aniversary and the Olympics in London. And I have no problem with Page, Morrison and, definitely not with Bowie joining the band for that event. (Even though I think Keith has a problem with Bowie joining them..., and his opinion is far more important than mine :-) ) However, I absolutely puke at the thought of Elton John going on stage with the Stones. And I know Keith would refuse to. It's like ruining a fantastic meal by insisting on drinking old water from the flower vases in stead of having some (X-pensive) wine.
If Mick wants this to happen, he'd better play his cards right. And including Elton John would make Keith furious, I'm quite certain of this. He might be able to tolerate Bowie in a duet with Mick, but Elton John... (What on earth has Mick been smoking while on holiday in India???)

Let's see who of those mentioned names will make it to year 2012. So it is confirmed that The Rolling Stones will be still around then. I think the guitarist Addicted is worried about (for playing with Bowie, blonde-loving-Elton, etc.) is perhaps replaced by then (by Dave Stewart, maybe,..).drinking smiley

And "rock aristocracy".... where is Macca?

Nahhhh...none of the above.

Over there they still fancy George Michael & Robbie Williams. Maybe they could be backed by The Oasis?

Let's see if everyone is still physically able to take the stage in 2012 before we get too concerned about feuds!

What about:

Keith - Guitars / piano / vocals
IanMcLagan - keyboards
Ronnie - Guitars / steelguitar
Michael Philip J - vocals
Charles Watts - drums and other sorts of percussion
Bobby K. - saxophone
William Perks - bass (and dancing)

I think a lot of the time Keith's bark is worse than his bite. A lot of gimmicky advertising...his quote about Bowie was ridiculous and I doubt he really meant it, but he often says stuff just to piss people off. Regarding Elton, that one seems a little more legit, they both seemed to have been pissed at each other for a while there, but who knows???

What was the whole Elton John thing about? Was it only the guest appaernace he made in '75 and he wouldn't leave the stage or was there something else going on there?


On which album was Wyman credited as Bill Wyman - bass (and dancing)?
I love there sence of humor!

Oh several years ago during the Stones world tour Elton made the mistake of saying they shouldn't tour anymore, Keith looked to old and wrinkly and it has become a parody....well as you can imagine Keith didn't take kindly to that suggestion and gave the grand diva a few choice suggestions where to put his advice...this "fued" went on for a while in the press..then faded away...
I believe the album crediting Bill for Bass and Dancing was Love you Live.

Gee, this sends a great message to the world about London. "England, where our cathedrals and monuments, and even our rock stars, have been around longer than your ancestors. England, rooted in the past, and still looking backwards!"

Or, "Hey Russia, who says we're running out of fossil fuel!"

What a joke.

I have no opinion one way or the other about how much truth might be in this reported story but whitem8 is dead right. Keith has a great penchant for mischievous ranting...which folks too often take seriously.

Mick may have a different supergroup in the works.

On October 10th, I ran into Dave Stewart at the Sheryl Crow concert at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. I asked him how the recording sessions were going with Mick and if they were for a Jagger solo album. He told me that it was Mick, 2 other guys and himself that were recording for a possible Travelling Wilburys type group. He himself used Travelling Wilburys to describe it. I didn't press him on who the 2 other guys were.
