Let’s face it: Only Mick Jagger can move like Jagger.
Following a heart valve surgery for the rock ‘n roll icon just a few months ago, Mick Jagger is surprisingly back to doing what he does best. The “No Filter” tour started this past weekend in Chicago’s famed Soldier Field, proof that age nor a replaced heart valve will prevent the Rolling Stones from entertaining multiple generations of fans until the end of time.
Quick Rolling Stones member recap:
- Mick Jagger (75-years-old)
- Keith Richards (75-years-old)
- Charlie Watts (78-years-old)
- Ronnie Wood (72-years-old. He’s the band’s youngster)
Having attended the “Zip Code” tour back in May of 2015 in a packed Horseshoe with my dad, my dad’s brother, and my sister, the Stones bring out fans of literally all ages. At the concert I went to, there were kids and grandparents rocking with equal intensity and happiness. Simply incredible. That, ladies and gentlemen, is why rock ‘n roll will rock on and live on forever.
“Rock on” horns up!
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
Aside from keyboardist Ben Lovett looking like a stereotypical ’70s drug dealer who hangs around the disco on Thursday night before trying his pick-up lines on the ladies, it sounds like British folk rockers Mumford & Sons have a promising new single from a promising new album titled ‘Delta.’
Personally, the band’s previous album ‘Wilder Mind’ was incredible. The guitars and drums were louder when they needed to be and more controlled when they needed to be for a memorable music collection. The lyrics were fantastic and the album’s sound has staying power. Interestingly, the new single “Guiding Light” doesn’t definitively reveal a new daring sound. Nor does it confirm a return to past songs by Mumford & Sons.
And on the 14-track album ‘Delta,’ there will be plenty for us to listen to while our mind wanders to something deeply personal, imaginative and–dare I write it–wilder than what we’re expecting from Mumford & Sons?
We’ll find out on November 16 when the new album drops.
Is Thursday night the actual start of the weekend?
However, we can still pretend. And in that spirit, let’s all enjoy some brand new rock ‘n’ roll from…
The fact that this band kicks ass is not a conspiracy.
Aerosmith is one of the greatest and most iconic rock bands of all-time. The band’s style, look, and the sound is unmistakable. As a group, they boast an incredible musical catalog, as well as a backstage dust-up between its two biggest stars that led to its initial breakup.
Aerosmith has it all as a rock band.
Aerosmith is leaning into the future.
Aerosmith played a special concert on the Today Show earlier today.
Aerosmith doesn’t need to learn new tricks. Those tricks still rock…and roll.
