The Rolling Stones are planning to warm up for their comeback shows in London and New Jersey later this year with a handful of tiny club gigs which are likely to be billed under their ‘Cockroaches’ alias, according to Ronnie Wood.
Live Nation, the company behind the Hard Rock Calling and Wireless festivals, will no longer stage its events in Hyde Park after a series of run-ins with the local council and residents during the past year, reports The Guardian.
Huntington Beach at the turn of the century is a long way from Memphis at the tail end of the 1950’s, but you would never be able to tell by looking at Nick Waterhouse.
With his horn-rimmed frames, buttoned-up Brooks Brothers suit, and clean-cut crop, the 25 year-old southern California native has considerably less in common with the skate-punk slackerism of his own generation than he does with the scotch-&-water swank of his parents’.

Here’s Keane talking about their award winning music video “Disconnected”:
