Rolling Stones front man won't be playing after all
[b]Mick Jagger[/b] has issued a brief statement officially denying that he and fellow [b]Rolling Stone[/b] [b]Charlie Watts[/b] will be joining the bill for the Led Zeppelin show at London’s 02 Arena on December 10.
Jagger declared: “Contrary to media speculation Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts will not be participating in any way at the Led Zeppelin Concert in December but wish them well for a great gig.”
The show, a tribute to Atlantic Records’ founder [b]Ahmet Ertegun[/b], will also include Ex-Stone [b]Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings[/b], who will perform as the concert’s ‘house band’ backing the other artists on the bill.
Earlier in the week, [b]The Who[/b]’s Pete Townshend spoke out at critics who’d attacked [b]Robert Plant[/b] for reforming Zeppelin.
Meanwhile, a new [b]led Zeppelin[/b] compilation, Mothership, will be released this coming Monday (November 12).
