Mick Jagger Forming New ?Super Heavy? Band?
By Michael Wright
Perhaps still smarting from various barbs in Keith Richards’ autobiography, Life, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger appears to be stepping out on his own. The New York Post is reporting that Jagger has been recording with Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart, Bob Marley’s son Damian Marley, singer Joss Stone and Oscar-winning Indian musician/producer A.R. Rahman.
An unnamed source told the Post, “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.”
“Each member has a very distinct and different style, but it works,” another source said. “Mick has been recording with Dave for a while, and both worked with Joss in the past.”
Jagger’s camp is still playing the whole project close to the vest, with a rep only disclosing: “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.”
