If there is a tour in the future then there is only one substitute to Ronnie, that is Eric Clapton

I doubt Mick will go on tour before geting any new material if not announcing the Farwell tour. Time is running out for them. "Times waits for no one" should be played in the next tour.

The only think that may save Roninie is geting into the studio with Keith and Mick or touring. Question is if that is posible at all, thinking on his health.

In anyway or another this is a sad end for Ronnie's epoc. He has got over the edge.

Honestly this Clapton thing is difficult to believe. Keith has said many times that as good as Clapton is, he's not a band guitarist and that he's too nervous when he plays. I seriously doubt he would agree to it either on the guitars issue or to have someone like Clapton taking too much of the spotlight away from him. Mick has said that Keith is a bigger prima donna than him and it's partially true. I'd think that Mick Taylor has more of a chance. Still, a lot more will have to happen before Ronnie Wood is actually kicked out.

Key words "at the moment"...



True, although by the same token they could have just said nothing at all.

Very strange to go to the trouble of making a press statement that they have NO plans to tour. That must be a first.

Not really hard to join the dots and see why, if true.

Ronnie's repeated fuck ups seem to have derailed what was already going to be a tight schedule.

I really can't see why it should be difficult to beleive.

Eric has been their friends since 1962 and is half a Rolling Stones, he has palying with them in 1975 and 1989 and he may be ending up his carrer withthe Stones.
We are not talking about 20 more years.

This is the end of the saga, guys .
They need to find a good ending , and Eric Clapton is the best one.

The print run for Keith's autobiography - scheduled to cash in with the tour - has probably been halved overnight!

At least they've told us early on in fairness - after the 'Charlie quits' story, the Stones camp have been quite fast to put out press releases of late when its mattered (unlike the fiasco over the Euro '06 tour cancellations).

Ok guys, now your year has been written off in a single sentence, how about a few more archive releases to tide us over.....?

Read Keith's comments about Clapton and you might agree. They are all mates and he's probably closer to Wyman and Ronnie Wood above the others even though Keith wrote him that letter when his son died, but they're friends with a lot of guitarists. He hasn't worked with them for 20 years and before that for about 15 years so 3-4 times in about 35 years isn't saying much. Besides, in his autobiography he talked about Mick nicking Carla Bruni off of him so that tension is probably still around. Trust me, I'd be thrilled but I seriously doubt it. I just see a lot of other people who would be in front of him, although just thinking about it, they may do it for commercial reasons because who wouldn't pay to watch the Rolling Stones with Eric Clapton. The wine disgrace shows there is no low they won't steep to commercially.

Can't find hide nor hair of a press release anywhere other than that Daily Mail article.

Were no other news outlets given that "official statement"?

Do they have a relationship with the Stones camp that other British papers don't, or are they another tabloid?

Daryl Jones is not a Rolling Stone: he is a sideman – just like Blondie, Lisa, Bernard, et al.


Another guitarist - British or not - wouldn't be a Rolling Stone either...



I agree. At this point, late in the group's career, there won't be a new official Stone...

Yeah I agree with that, it's too late in the game to name an 'official' Rolling Stone. Anyway I think RONNIE will get his act together by the time the tour begins. There's enough time for a long stay at rehab, and I know RONNIE will force his ass in gear, he isnt THAT stupid!! He'll be bright, shiny and new again, on the outside anyway. Inside RONNIE will secretly crave the alcohol, and he always will, so the question remains, does RONNIE have the inner strength to really sober up?

Read back a few posts, E... It appears there IS no tour, according to an official announcement.

Ronnie, unfortunately, is VERY stupid.
