The Stones turn 50!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50'th anniversary with some kickoff shows in London this week. Opening night featured a killer setlist with the highlight being a rousing take on "Midnight Rambler" featuring former band member/guitarist Mick Taylor simply killing it! I love the stripped down nature of this...just amazing talents still playing the best rock and roll ever recorded. Welcome back boys!!

“Get Off of My Cloud”
“It’s All Over Now”
“Paint It Black”
“Gimme Shelter” (with Mary J. Blige)

Ian Hunter-"When I'm President"

Who would have thought that one of the best songs I've heard all year would come from former 1970's Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter?! Admittedly, I haven't heard much about Ian since the early 1980's brilliant "All of the Good Ones are Taken" but after listening to this smart, melodic beauty I can't wait to hear the rest of the album!
