New supergroup and theres definitely no place for Keef

Post  Admin on Sun Sep 11, 2011 8:19 am

For the past two years it has been the most closely guarded secret in the music business.

But The Mail on Sunday has been given exclusive access to the biggest supergroup in history, combining the talents of five of the biggest stars.

SuperHeavy is a collaboration between Rolling Stones legend Sir Mick Jagger, singer Joss Stone, former Eurythmics musician Dave Stewart, reggae legend Bob Marley’s son Damian and Oscar-winning soundtrack writer AR Rahman.

It means Jagger dismisses the idea of a 50th anniversary Stones tour next year but he hasn’t ruled out a one-off gig at the scene of their first performance – London’s Marquee Club.

He said: ‘There isn’t [a tour] so far. But there might be anything, anything can happen . . . Maybe we could go back to the Marquee to accept a plaque for 50 years of service. That could work – except Keith can’t obviously come
