Roundup: Jagger in the White House!

Share this post

Official Washington should keep an eye on its wives, because Jagger’s coming to the White House. Mick will perform Feb. 21 as the White House honors the blues for Black History Month. Also on the bill: B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Gary Clarke Jr., Jeff Beck, Keb Mo, Trombone Shorty and Booker T. Jones. Leave it to the New York Times to describe Mick like this: “Mr. Jagger, a vocalist whose influences include bluesmen like Howlin’ Wolf.”

Guns n Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed tells Billboard that he expects all original band members to be there when they’re inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April. No word on whether they’ll perform.

“Naked Chef” Jamie Oliver found Joy Division and New Order master tapes, as he was renovating an old bank into a restaurant.

Rolling Stone notes that Steven Van Zandt‘s tour with the E Street Band may conflict with filming for the second season of his mobster drama Lilyhammer.

The Raveonettes’ new EP is called Into the Night, and on Facebook, the band promises it will come out “very soon.”
