The band's tour kicks off at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Friday night, and according to Entertainmentwise.com the show isn't even sold out. The site reports that even scalpers -- er, ticket brokers, have even lowered their prices in attempt to sell them.

More than 1,000 tickets to the show were also put on sale by promoter AEG ...

Drummer Says The Faces Sound 'Better Than Ever'

April 8th, 2012 1:30pm EDT
Ron Wood
Drummer Kenney Jones insists The Faces sound better than ever now guitarist Ron Wood has cleaned up his act and got "the woman thing out of his system".

A week before he, Wood, Ian McLagan and Rod Stewart reteam for a rare performance at their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction, Jones is confident fans will like what they hear.

And he thinks much of that has to do with Wood's sobriety and the end of his women chasing following the break-up of his marriage.

He tells Mojo magazine, "It's actually more together. On a good night, we used to blow everyone's head off, but every night's a good ...

Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones are in talks to stage a 50th anniversary tour in 2011, according to drummer Charlie Watts.

Watts tells Le Parisien, "We said that if we do something, it will be next year or the year after... We've reached an age where you can't look too far into the future."

His co-founders Mick Jagger and Keith Richards will both turn 70 in 2013.

Ignoring Old Show-Business Rules, Rolling Stones Brightly 'Shine a Light'

April 4th, 2008 9:47am EDT
Shine a Light
(HollywoodChicago.com) – In The Beatles versus The Rolling Stones debate (which no one under 40 would have), I’m decidedly in the corner of the Fab Four. I do acknowledge, however, the sheer stamina and staying power of The Rolling Stones.

They are charismatic and charming at the same time and their history of powerful classic songs gives them a magic credibility few bands have attained. In their latest concert film – the Martin Scorsese-directed “Shine a Light” – they bring their best as they are right now despite qualifying for social security.

Filmed with a phalanx of cameras a...
