So who's the star of your new band SuperHeavy, Sir Mick?



They are some of the planet’s most talented musicians.

But looking at this first picture of SuperHeavy, Sir Mick Jagger’s new band, there’s no doubt who sees himself as the main attraction.

The Rolling Stones frontman stood out from his grey-clad bandmates – Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart, soul singer Joss Stone, Bob Marley’s son Damian and Oscar-winning Indian composer A.R. Rahman – in a bright blue jacket.


Suggestions of a tour will fuel speculation over the future of the Stones, especially with a rift thought to have grown between Sir Mick and guitarist Keith Richards over critical comments in the latter’s autobiography.

Here the Mail profiles the five musicians in SuperHeavy:
