All four members of the Rolling Stones were photographed exiting a building in London yesterday, fueling rumors that the band is planning a 50th anniversary tour for 2012. The band is unlikely to confirm anything for the foreseeable future, partially because Mick Jagger wants all attention focused on his new band SuperHeavy. The Stones haven't played together since their Bigger Bang tour wrapped in August of 2007. When we asked Jagger about a possible Stones tour this past May he just chuckled. "I don't have any announcement to make at the moment," he said. "I'm just, uh, ya know…just doing this [SuperHeavy] right now."

We're putting this out to our readers: What do you think Jagger is holding in that photo? We think he probably saw that there were photographers outside and covered something up in a purple towel – but what?

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
