Keith Richards says the Rolling Stones are considering playing a gig to mark the band’s 50th anniversary in July of next year. The band played their first ever gig as “The Rollin’ Stones” at the Marquee Club in London on July 12th 1962. In an interview with The Sun, Richards said, “the idea is there. We kind of know we should do it, but nobody’s put their finger on the moment yet.”
Richards said he and Mick Jagger have put aside the differences that arose following the release of Richards’ autobiography last year. Said Richards, “Mick pouted a bit, as is his wont…I told him, ‘It’s water under the bridge. I want to talk about the future. We’re larger than a little bitching.’” Keef is currently working with his band X-Pensive Winos, while it has recently come out that Jagger is doing his own thing with Super Heavy, which features a bunch of big-name musicians.
