Mick Jagger Collaberation

Post  Admin on Fri May 20, 2011 10:55 pm

THE Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger - still smarting from a pen-lashing by bandmate Keith Richards - set up a new supergroup with Eurythmics star Dave Stewart, Damian Marley, Joss Stone and Indian musician and producer A.R. Rahman, the New York Post reported Friday.

Jagger, who was sharply and repeatedly needled in Richards' best-selling autobiography, "Life," was secretly recording with Stewart, Bob Marley's youngest son Damian, jazz-influenced Stone and Grammy-winning Rahman, dubbed "The Mozart of Madras," who also won two Oscars for Slumdog Millionaire.

A source said, "They just finished a record and their first video and are talking to major labels about a deal. The name for the band at the moment is Super Heavy." Another source said, "Each member has a very distinct and different style, but it works. Mick has been recording with Dave for a while, and both worked with Joss in the past."

But a rep for Jagger told the post, "They all thought it would be interesting and great fun to go into the studio and play some music. No video has been shot, no label in place. All a bit premature."

But if the band was a hit, it could further divert Jagger's attention from a speculated-about new Stones tour -- especially since there was no love lost between him and Richards, whose 2010 book was particularly withering about Jagger's solo career.

Of Jagger's first effort sans the Stones, 1985's "She's the Boss," Richards wrote, "I've never listened to [it] the whole way through. Who has? It's like Mein Kampf. Everybody had a copy, but nobody listened to it."
