Mick Jagger Is Doing Well After Surgery
Mick Jagger had heart surgery, which prompted the Rolling Stones to reschedule their upcoming North American tour. But in an interview on Toronto radio station Q107, he says he’s recovering well.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” he said. “Been rehearsing a lot lately in the last few weeks … This morning [I did] a bit of gym. Nothing crazy. Then I go into rehearsal with the rest of the band.”
He added of their song selections: “We’re trying to pick some ones we haven’t done in recent years, stuff we haven’t done before. Most of the time people don’t want too much unusual. People like a little bit unusual. They don’t want 100 percent unusual.”
Still, the band has so many classics it’s hard not to do a night full of them!
“The favorite ones people like to hear are, you know, ‘Paint it Black,’ ‘Honky Tonk [Women]’ and ‘Satisfaction’ and things like that,” he added. “We don’t always necessarily do all of them. We sometimes drop one or two, but there’s maybe ten favorites. I don’t know how people would feel if you didn’t do any of them. I think people would say, ‘Oh, that’s a bit unfortunate, I came to hear this.’”
The Stones kick off their tour on June 21st in Chicago. Will you be going?
