Promoting his new record, “Wonderful Crazy Night”, Elton John has been doing a lot of press lately including radio and according to UK’s “The Mirror” Elton made some comments about the Rolling Stones not being relevant anymore and should go back to their Blues roots and do a great blues record. This is the opinion of many Stones fans and it’s not Elton being mean he says, “What I think the Rolling Stones should do is a great blues record, and go back to what they used to do – and do things like ‘Come On,’ the Chuck Berry song like they did in their early career. That is what they should do. I think Mick wants to still be relevant on the radio. Well, they are not. And I think Keith would love to do a record like that. And that is what they should be doing.”
The Rolling Stones are touring in Latin America for the winter months but plan to continue recording when there’s a lull in their tour schedule. Maybe they’ll take Elton’s advice to heart.
