Rolling Stones Unreleased Song Added To “Exile On Main Street” 1972 Album!

The Rolling Stones 1972 classic “Exile On Main Street” will soon be released with songs from the sessions that until now have never been officially released.

If, after listening to all 18 tracks and 67 minutes of the Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main Street,” you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Boy, I could really do with a few more scuzzy, skeevy, down-and-dirty Stones tracks from those same sessions,” your ship has just come in. (And we think that’s Keith Richards dangling perilously from the crow’s nest.) Universal Music said that it would re-release “Exile on Main Street,” the 1972 Rolling Stones double album. The new version, which will get a United States release on May 18, will include 10 new tracks, with titles like “Plundered My Soul,” “Dancing in the Light,” “Following the River” and “Pass the Wine.” It will also feature alternate versions of songs like “Soul Survivor” and “Loving Cup.” A deluxe edition of the album will also include a DVD of a new Rolling Stones documentary, “Stones in Exile.”

Bad Religion Performing Unique Show To Celebrate 30th Anniversary!

Somehow, pioneer punk band Bad Religion has reached adulthood and turned 30 this year. Looking back on his time in Bad Religion since its formation in 1980, singer-songwriter Greg Graffin tells Spinner can’t believe how quickly three decades has gone by. While he’s not surprised that the Los Angeles veteran group is still alive and kicking, he never expected to still be playing to such vital young audiences across the country.

“If we were being offered to play as a heritage act, I don’t think I’d feel so motivated,” says Graffin, who currently plays alongside original members Brett Gurewitz and Jay Bentley as well as Greg Hetson, Brian Baker and Brooks Wackerman. “But we’re still getting to play every year in new places with vibrant punk scenes, so we still feel relevant.” Full Story at Spinner
