Rolling Stones: coming or not?

Rolling Stones may rock Israel

Voice of Israel reports rock legends to visit Israel; local promoters deny

Rock supergroup The Rolling Stones will perform in Israel during the group's upcoming world tour, Israel national radio reported Tuesday.


But local producers told Ynetnews they have heard nothing of such a plan. One source in Shuki Weiss's production office, producers of Phil Collins's upcoming concert in Israel, denied the radio story.


"We would be thrilled to have the Rolling Stones come to Israel, but we haven't had any contact with them," the source said.


Old guys know best


The Rolling Stones have been rocking for more than 40 years. One of the most successful bands in history, they have sold millions of records with hits such as "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Brown Sugar," and "Jumping Jack Flash."


The Band's members are all in their 60's, but people who have seen the band perform recently say on stage the veterans can still put younger rockers to shame.


The band's itinerary is yet to be finaized, but a source close to the band says the 2005-2006 world tour would be the "biggest and best tour they have ever had."


Rock music web sites are reporting that Stones' drummer Charlie Watts is recovered from throat cancer surgery, but that guitarist Ron Wood has reentered an alcohol addiction rehabilitation center.


The Stones are reportedly in the recording studios working on a new album, their first in eight years, in advance of the tour.
