In a new interview with radio station P4 (via The Independent), the Rolling Stones singer praised the two artists who have become firebrands. “You have Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly. That kind of post-punk vibe makes me think there is still a bit of life in rock and roll.”
Continuing, the rocker said that “in rock music you need energy and there have not been a lot of new rock singers around. Now there are a few.”
Bet you didn’t have that on your 2022 Bingo card, eh?
As for Stones news, Jagger said don’t expect the band to throw in the towel any time soon. The band will embark on their 60th anniversary European Tour that kicks off on June 1 in Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium (home of Atlético Madrid)
“I am not planning it to be the last live outing. “I love being on tour. I don’t think I would do it if I did not enjoy it,” Jagger said. “I enjoy going out there on stage and doing my stuff. That is what I do. I want everyone to enjoy themselves and forget the troubles in their lives for a couple of hours and just chill out and have a great afternoon and evening.”
