Set for release on February 10th will be the latest Rolling Stones archival release, titled Grrr Live! The set, which gets its name from the band's 2012 career-spanning compilation Grrr!, was recorded on December 15th, 2012 during the band's "50 And Counting" tour stop at Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center. The set features guest spots by Bruce Springsteen on "Tumbling Dice," Guy Clark, Jr. and John Mayer on "Going Down," the Black Keys on Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?," and Lady Gaga duetting with Mick Jagger on "Gimme Shelter."
As he did every night on the road, former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor joined the band for an incendiary take on their 1969 classic, "Midnight Rambler." The set, which was originally available on pay-per-view, is available now as a pre-order.
According to the announcement, "Since its original airing on pay-per-view in 2012, the concert has been re-edited and the audio has been remixed. Three songs from the December 13th show — also in Newark — will be available as bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray: 'Respectable' with John Mayer, 'Around And Around,' and 'Gimme Shelter.'"
Mick Jagger reflected upon being in the same band for over 50 years: ["We're glad we continued for this long. I think it's kinda good in some ways — it's great. In some ways, it's kinda 'why bother?' (Laughs) People say, 'Why bother?! Do something else!' 'Well, okay, yeah.' But I do try and do other things apart from the Rolling Stones. At one time it was the only thing in your life. Y'know, but as you get older, you get other things that come along that take your time up. And so, y'know, now I think it's on a very level keel, so that you can be enthusiastic about it, but it's not the only thing in your life. I think that's normal."] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . . think that's normal)
