Mick Jagger has made a guest appearance on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.
The popular, long-running podcast has previously seen the comedian talking with a host of huge names from music and comedy, including Iggy Pop, Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, Thom Yorke, Kim Gordon, Louie CK, Amy Poehler, Russell Brand, Fiona Apple, Andrew WK, J Mascis, Will Ferrell, Lena Dunham and Chrissie Hynde. This week’s episode sees The Rolling Stones frontman calling into the show from the West Indies, for 10 minutes of chat.
While on the show, Jagger discussed recent reports that his group were considering playing their 1971 album ‘Sticky Fingers’ in full on their upcoming North American tour dates. “It might work, and it might not,” he commented. “It’s got quite a few slow songs on it. Maybe it’ll work; you gotta see.” He went on to explain that Mick Taylor won’t be coming on tour with the band this summer, as well as saying that his and Keith Richards’ relationship is currently “pretty good. I saw him the other day.” Listen to the whole podcast at www.wtfpod.com. Read an exclusive NME interview with Marc Maron about interviewing some of the biggest stars in music by clicking here.
‘Sticky Fingers’ will get a deluxe reissue to coincide with the tour. The Rolling Stones will head out on the road this May, June and July. The band will kick things off in San Diego on May 24, before heading to major cities such as Dallas, Detroit and others, before finishing up at the Le Festival D’Été de Québec on July 15.
