The Rolling Stones Might Pursue Legal Action Against Trump

The Rolling Stones are putting their foot down and possibly pursuing legal action against Donald Trump. He used their music in 2016 during his Presidential campaign and is trying to use it again for his current rallies without the approval of the band. Trump has been playing “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” as his walk off song during his rallies and The Rolling Stones have sent cease & desist letters in an attempt to get him to stop. Music rights organization BMI has a catalog of songs that are allowed to be used during political campaigns. However, an… Read more »


Berlin film festival gloats over Rolling Stones coup

Snatching Martin Scorsese’s eagerly awaited documentary about the Rolling Stones away from rival film festivals for the Berlinale next month is a career highlight for festival director Dieter Kosslick. The Berlin boss, humiliated when great rival Cannes poached “Motorcycle Diaries” at the last minute four years ago, said on Wednesday the buzz hasn’t even begun to wear off since he secured Scorsese’s “Shine a Light” for the February 7 opening. “We’ve been talking about this film for a year and obviously every festival director was trying to get it,” Kosslick said, adding the British band will join the American director… Read more »


Rolling Stones sign Universal album deal

Veteran British rock band the Rolling Stones has signed an exclusive worldwide recording agreement to release its next album through Universal Music Group, prompting speculation that it could leave EMI.

Justin Timberlake, AC/DC Join Rolling Stones In Concert To Boost Toronto's Spirits

Now that he’s flying high with a hit record and one of the only successful tours of the summer, Justin Timberlake is unstoppable and afraid of nothing – not even a little SARS. The pop star will join the Rolling Stones and a host of other artists and celebrities at an eight-hour concert in Toronto on Monday to revive tourism and spirit in the city following the wane in both that hit after the city was hit by a highly publicized outbreak of the infectious disease SARS.

Rolling Stones Postpone Hong Kong Shows

The Rolling Stones have postponed two upcoming shows in Hong Kong because of a mystery illness outbreak in the territory. The spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS – which has killed 10 and sickened hundreds in Hong Kong – prompted the Stones to push back concerts that had been scheduled for Friday and Saturday, the rock band said in a statement. “Increases in the number of cases of SARS in Hong Kong and Southern China and continued concern over large gatherings have created apprehension among fans and concern for their safety,” the Stones said Wednesday. No dates have… Read more »


Rolling Stones Give Free Concert

With nary a Hells Angels member or flying pool cue in sight, the Rolling Stones played their first free concert in 33 years on Thursday, as a celebrity crowd headed by former U.S. President Bill Clinton looked on. The event at the Staples Center was a considerably more sedate affair than their last free show, at the Altamont Speedway near San Francisco in 1969. Then, security was handled by the local Hells Angels chapter, who clubbed fans with pool cues while the band looked on helplessly. A teenager was stabbed to death as he appeared to point a gun at… Read more »


Rolling Stones To Perform Live on HBO

After nearly 40 years of playing “Satisfaction,” aren’t the Rolling Stones a bit sick of it? Really, they aren’t. Keith Richards and Ron Wood say it’s a great song and it takes on a different meaning every time they play it. “Of course, there are nights where you want to throw the set list out the window,” Mick Jagger said. “But up to a point, people want to hear certain things. But you don’t want to just play those, you want to play other things. Richards and Jagger said they don’t think young people are giving up on rock. “No,… Read more »


Rolling Stones Would Have No Chance Today

The Rolling Stones would have no chance on the music market if they were to start as newcomers today, the band’s former bassist Bill Wyman said on Wednesday. Wyman, who left the Rolling Stones after the band’s 30th anniversary 10 years ago, said record companies would no longer sign people whose style was different to that of the charts. “That’s why many talented young people don’t have a chance. The Rolling Stones would be too different today. They were different then but in those days the record companies and the media were open to new ideas,” Wyman told Reuters in… Read more »
