We’ve all had trouble with our zippers…..
The reissue of The Rolling Stones’ album “Sticky Fingers” has hit a snag, specifically, the zipper. The original version of the album had a working zipper, and Universal Music intends to include that on the reissues. However, the Rolling Stones say the zipper is taking longer than anticipated to manufacture. The “Sticky Fingers” reissues were supposed to come out the week of May 24th, when the Stones begin their tour. Instead, “Sticky Fingers” will come out June 9th.
The Rolling Stones are going on tour this summer — and it appears the only Canadian concert on the “Zip Code” tour is Quebec City. The tour will coincide with the re-release of the Stones’ seminal 1971 album “Sticky Fingers” on May 26th which features classics like “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses.”
Ringo Starr has no interest in writing an autobiography, but you can find his life story in his music. Starr considers his songs mini-memoirs. He sings about his hometown in “Liverpool 8,” and “The Other Side of Liverpool.” He’s got a new song called “Rory and the Hurricanes” that’s about the band he played in before The Beatles. His “Postcards From Paradise” song strings together Beatles song lyrics. Starr doesn’t even care much if he sells a lot of copies. He says putting out records is “a great excuse to hang out with a lot of friends and a lot of great musicians.” Starr will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist on Saturday.
Jimmy Page’s hearing is amazingly good for someone his age, especially considering most people didn’t spend hours at a time in front of John Bonham’s drums. Page says Bonham could play an acoustic instrument incredibly loud. Page says Bonham could do an accent on a bass drum that would “really come right through your stomach as you were playing. It was wonderful.” Page says sometimes he would have ringing in his ears after a show, but he’s really fortunate that he still has good hearing.
