Mick Jagger Compares Performing Live To Sex

I think we’ve all heard the phrase “It’s better than sex,” or some derivative thereof, and although Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger does not claim that performing live is actually better than sex, apparently, it’s pretty darn close.

"Is it like sex? I don’t know. Is there an orgasmic moment? Not that there necessarily has to be in sex. It’s a different kind of thing. At times, you have to be more calculated about what you do,” the 65-year-old rocker says.

Jagger also talks a bit about the separation between his rock star persona and his real life. Full Story.

Chris Cornell Denies Led Zeppelin Tour Rumors

Former Audioslave and Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell was rumored to be in the running as a replacement — or perhaps as the fellows from Yes would say, a stand in –  for Robert Plant during a tour that the other members of the group are reportedly anxious to do.

Cornell’s reaction, reminiscent of the reactions we have heard from others that have been mentioned as new frontmen for Zeppelin, was that the notion of him replacing Plant was “depressing,” and that he would not even consider trying to replace him.

“That’s not a ticket I would buy. God bless ’em, but that’s not Led Zeppelin. I find it completely depressing. I’d never do anything like that. I mean just out of respect to the legacy of the band,” says Cornell. Full Story.
