PLAYERS: Rolling Stones

“I was born in a crossfire hurricane / And I howled at my ma in the driving rain / But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!” — The Rolling Stones, “Jumping Jack Flash”

Spin Magazine: When the Stones released that single in 1968, in their mid-twenties and a mere six years into their career, they couldn’t have had any idea that said storm was going to carry them as far as it has. The seminal rock and roll band is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, and the gas is still flowing. Mixed metaphors aside, they’ve just announced a comprehensive documentary called Crossfire Hurricane, coming to U.S. audiences via HBO on November 15, and the U.K. via BBC and select theaters.

The Stones are also rumored to have a pair of two-night stints in the works before the year is out, their first concerts since 2007, set to go down at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the O2 Arena in London. Last but hardly least, they went into a Paris studio last week to record a couple of new songs for a new box set.
