ROLLING STONES: How Sweet It Is
The wait is over for U.S. fans of The Rolling Stones as they bring their 50th anniversary mini-tour to Brooklyn, New York on Saturday followed by two in Newark, New Jersey next week.
Asked if he is surprised the Stones lasted 50 years, Mick Jagger tells us "yes," but adds that there were acts when the Stones started out in the early '60s who were around for a long time, including the Count Basie Orchestra and Frank Sinatra, who, Jagger says had "been singing for donkeys years by then. So you could have made a case for this being a long lasting thing, but nobody did." On Saturday they will be joined by Mary J. Blige, who sang at their first London show last month, and Gary Clark Jr.
