Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts discussed their pre-show rituals in a new interview.
“Backstage before the show, I like to relax and chill out,” Jagger told AP (via NME). “Just before the show, I get all like, ‘Ahh!’ So, sometimes I like to get everybody out of the room for a minute and just calm down and do my singing. I have Bob Marley things that I kind of sometimes do and move around to. And then I do a dance warm-up. I do a couple of, like, current tunes for a dance warm-up.”
Watts said that his ritual was a little less energetic and involved spending time with Keith Richards. “I usually play Duke Ellington, and then I go into Keith, who plays Little Richard, usually," he said.
Richards recently said that an album of new original music was in the works. "We have some stuff down, which is very interesting," he said. "It’s more difficult for us to write together the further apart we are, but it also has its benefits in that we come back to it from a different angle.”
