Jagger Planning Brazillian Music Fest?
Mick Jagger is reportedly in the planning stages of starting his own music festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Sun reported that Jagger is hoping to ape the modern hippie vibe of Britain’s Glastonbury Festival — which the Rolling Stones headlined for the first time this year. An unnamed source was quoted by Business Standard as saying that Jagger was eying the event for November 2014, explaining, “Mick has put some feelers out in Brazil to put on a big show. The plans are ambitious but if he pulls it off it will be huge. The whole vibe of the event is very much ‘flower power’ and the same hippie values that Glastonbury prides (itself) on. . . The publicity drive will begin in the next six months or so but there’s no doubt there will be big names on the bill.”
Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan revealed to ABC News that he’s re-recorded some Rolling Stones classics with Keith Richards. McLagan, who was part of the Stones’ touring and recording ensemble from 1977 to 1981, recorded the tracks “Happy” and “You Got The Silver” as part of a performance sequence for Johnny Depp’s upcoming documentary on Richards.
McLagen said: “We went to (Depp’s) house and were filmed recording with Keith, all day, and we cut three tracks and Keith was in great shape, great spirits. . . Johnny Depp’s like his son. . . he’s the next Keith Richards, and he’s such a sweet guy.”
There’s been no release date set for Depp’s documentary.
