Spinner reports today that Rolling Stones frontman/ guy who looks like your grandfather yet is in twice the physical shape you are, Mick Jagger, will be performing sans the Rolling Stones at this year’s Grammy Awards for the first time in his 50-year rock ‘n roll career.
The singer will be performing with soul singer Raphael Saadiq in a tribute to Solomon Burke, the famous soul performer who died last year.
“We’re thrilled, delighted, excited and very much looking forward to Mick doing his debut on the Grammy stage,” Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy said in a statement. “It’s extraordinary to many of us that the fact is, this will be the first time; he has never performed on the Grammy stage.”
While Stones fans might dig the chance to see Jagger in a solo situation that doesn’t suck (the horror, the HORROR), it sounds like they may have to wait a little longer to catch the World’s Greatest Rock ‘N Roll Band back in action, as Spinner also confirms that the band currently has no plans to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a world, tour, as had been previously reported.
