Not one for the Stones but this story from Andy Kershaw's book 'No Off Switch' made me smile; in 1982 he was asked to oversea a their concert at the Round Hay, but on arrival the Stones demanded a Japanese water garden complete with "a stream, a bridge, a waterfall, a pond and Koi carp". Somehow he managed to arrange the whole thing complete with babbling brook and parasols "with the hand-painted greeting in Japanese: F*** you, Rolling Stones". Kind of warmed to Andy Kershaw on reading that.

Dahn! I thought this was a theme about the greatest Rock'n'Roll bands featuring in The Rolling Stone magazine.

I was really looking forward to reading about The Doctors of Madness, TV Smith's Explorers and Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders from Mars.

...And of course Sparks rock albums like Big Beat. ;)

The Rolling Stones to celebrate 50th anniversary with free exhibition in London
Quote
The Rolling Stones: 50
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood
A Free Photographic Exhibition at Somerset House
13 July – 27 August 2012

‘This is our story of fifty fantastic years. We started out as a blues band playing the
clubs and more recently we’ve filled the largest stadiums in the world with the kind of
show that none of us could have imagined all those years ago’.
Mick, Keith, Charlie & Ronnie

On 12 July 1962 the Rolling Stones went on stage at the Marquee Club in London’s
Oxford Street. A phenomenal 50 years later, and to celebrate this milestone, Somerset
House will present a free photographic exhibition documenting the last half-century
and looking back at their astounding career. This exhibition will also coincide with the
release of the book by the same name, published by Thames & Hudson.

With privileged access to a wealth of unseen and rare material, this one-off exhibition
will include over seventy prints ranging from reportage photography, live concert and
studio session images, to contact sheets, negative strips and outtakes from every
period of the band’s history – from performing in the smallest blues clubs to the
biggest stadium tours of all time.

Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to purchase limited edition prints,
copies of the book and other merchandise.

Dates: 13 July – 27 August 2012
Opening Hours: 10am – 6pm Daily
Address: East Wing Galleries, Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2R 1LA

In a Twitter Q&A featuring all four members, Wood says: “We are better live now. I don’t know what’s happened.

“I’m going to enjoy the next stage of rehearsals we’re in now. They’re fun, believe me, and the music’s high quality. We’re going to explode one day, I think.”

Asked to describe his career in one word, he replies: “Fun!”

Mick Jagger reveals he begins practicing his singing a month before hitting the road. “After a few weeks I do karaoke,” he says, “But not in a smoke-filled room.”

Responding to a question about pre-show nerves he explains: “I don’t really get nervous, I get excited. Before the first show of a tour sometimes I get anxious. Anything can go wrong, there’s things than can happen. But I’m not really nervous.”

Keith Richards is asked to reveal the secret of immortality, and replies: “I ain’t there yet. So far so good! A clean and healthy life, plenty of exercise, go to church on Sunday.”
