The long-running battle over The Verve's 1997 classic Bittersweet Symphony has been resolved in favour of Richard Ashcroft. The needle was the usage of a special orchestral version of the Rolling Stones' The Last Time, and the rights have been in the hands of Jagger & Richards. But now they've signed the rights back over to Ashcroft.

Urban Myths: Mick & Margaret
How a friendship between the rocker and the Princess might have developed over the decades, as she respected him more for respecting her more than her family and friends did. But he didn't get his KBE until Blair wasn't PM any more. Nicely done, with Stargroves, Mustique and royal intrigues in the mix.

In the present day, the Stones have returned to the stage with Mick apparently little the worse for his recent health issues.

Stoned, by Andrew Loog Oldham
The loquacious early manager of the Stones tells his story (or up to mid-1964 anyway), how he saw the Stones as an opportunity, and made the most of it, getting Mick & Keith to write songs, sidelining Brian from early on, and getting records to make an impact. He looked to one of Cliff Richard's films, Expresso Bongo, as inspirational in terms of Laurence Harvey's role as Bongo's manager. A very entertaining read.

Suburban Steps to Rockland - The Story of the Ealing Club
Many acts could claim some connection to a London blues scene which boosted the developments of their acts, from Cream to the Who, but the story kept coming back to Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, and hence the Rolling Stones.  Alexis Korner and John Mayall got their due too. I saw this before the news of Ginger Baker's death too.

Annie Leibovitz - Life Through A Lens
This 2006 profile covered her story, through the Rolling Stone years, as well as later work with Vanity Fair. She photographed rockers like Patti Smith and John Lennon - Yoko recalled a photoshoot with John which took place only a few hours before his untimely murder. She even went on tour with the Rolling Stones. Mick and Keith were both flattered and flattering about her work, which helped set new standards for the form.

They've produced their first new song in many years - Living In A Ghost Town apparently originated before the current pandemic, but has been completed to reflect it more overtly.

Somebody Up There Likes Me
Ronnie Wood gets the treatment, with director Mike Figgis in the chair. Mick, Keith and Charlie of the other Stones all spoke up, as did Rod Stewart and Damien Hirst. Some novelty came from an archive chat with Malcolm McLaren and Peter Grant, which I don't recall coming up elsewhere (I suspect it was a Figgis-own item, which would explain something). Ronnie was pretty honest, and grateful to have survived.

Top Gear - Ronnie Wood
He was on in 2007. He mentioned being friends with Keith Moon. He once stayed awake with Keith Richards for 6 days and nights whilst the Stones were at Madison Square Garden, including jamming with Eric Clapton and other larks, before sleeping for 2 days straight afterwards. Keith once shot his own guitar by mistake, thinking it was Mick's. Charlie Watts owns rare cars but has (or had) no driving licence. He lapped in the Chevrolet Lacetti in a decent 1m 49.4s

The Glastonbury Experience: The Rolling Stones @ 2013
Another short extract from their landmark appearance - notable for including tracks never before shown, which begs a question. As the tracks here were Jumping Jack Flash, It's Only Rock N Roll, Paint It, Black and Gimme Shelter, you wonder what the problem was.

The band have also crossed swords once again with U.S. President Donald Trump over his use of their hit You Can't Always Get What You Want, which they don't approve of him using.

They're #1 in the albums charts here with a new souped-up version of their classic Goat's Head Soup album. It had been previously reissued in 1994 and 2009 as well.
