In a recent interview with Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1, Keith Richards discussed a captivating possibility: the potential for an AI-powered hologram concert featuring The Rolling Stones. Surprisingly, Richards didn’t shoot down the idea; instead, he hinted that it might just be a matter of time before such a spectacle becomes a reality.
When questioned about his stance on this concept, Richards admitted that he couldn’t entirely dismiss the idea. Still, his personal desire for it is something he’s less certain about. He also stated:
“Well, I certainly wouldn’t rule it out. I’m pretty sure that it is bound to happen”.
This intriguing topic had previously been broached by Mick Jagger, another member of The Rolling Stones, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal back in September. Jagger noted the incredible technological progress that now makes posthumous concert tours a feasible idea, citing the success of ABBA’s Voyage show as an example.
The Most Collaborative Album Yet
The Rolling Stones recently released their 24th studio album, Hackney Diamonds, on October 20, adding another milestone to their storied career. What makes this album even more special is the array of musical legends who lent their talents, including Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Elton John, and Stevie Wonder. The record also features drumming by the late Charlie Watts and bass contributions from founding member Bill Wyman.
Richards revealed that the band’s decision to create this album was deeply influenced by the loss of Charlie Watts in 2021. The drummer’s passing served as a poignant reminder of the importance of putting out a record that included their final work with Charlie, ensuring that his legacy lives on in their music.
