Date: September 5, 2013 18:33




The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Case Western Reserve University will honor 1989 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the Rolling Stones, during the 18th Annual Music Masters series It’s Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It): The Music of The Rolling Stones beginning Monday, October 21 through Saturday, October 26, 2013 in Cleveland. This year, the series will be renamed the Annual Music Masters to reflect the historical evolution and expansion of the rock and roll story. The series is sponsored by ELS Surround.

The tribute concert on October 26 will be anchored by a group of top flight musicians who have performed with the Rolling Stones over their 50 year career and contributed to shaping the band’s extraordinary sound. Grammy Award-winning drummer Steve Jordan will lead the house band as musical director. Jordan has assembled a group of critically-acclaimed musicians, including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ian McLagan, Lisa Fischer, Bernard Fowler, Bobby Keys, Steve Madaio, Ivan Neville, Waddy Wachtel and Willie Weeks to perform. Additional artists will be announced in the coming weeks, along with a schedule of events.

"We are very excited to expand the stories we tell in the Music Masters program,” said Lauren Onkey, vice president of education for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. “Rock and roll caught fire around the world, and we want to reflect that in this program. The Rolling Stones were inspired by so many great American artists in creating their own original brand of rock and roll – it's an incredible story. We have an outstanding band to showcase the music of the Stones."

“The Museum is proud to honor the Rolling Stones during their 50th anniversary year,” said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. “In addition to our blockbuster exhibit, which has attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world, we will take this opportunity to dig deeper into the story of this groundbreaking band that challenged and changed the face of rock and roll.”

The 18th annual series begins on Monday, October 21, and will feature interviews, panels, films and educational programs throughout the week, including a keynote lecture at Case Western Reserve University. On Saturday, October 26, a conference will be held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the Rolling Stones’ impact on popular music. The tribute concert will also be held Saturday, October 26, at 7:30 p.m. at PlayhouseSquare’s State Theatre in Cleveland.

The Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction exhibition opened in May 2013 and celebrates the Rolling Stones’ incredible contribution to popular music. Through the use of artifacts, film, text and interactive technology, generations of music fans from around the world have the opportunity to get up close and personal with rare items from nearly every aspect of the Stones’ extraordinary career. The Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction is slated to run until March 2014.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame taps the Rolling Stones as first non-American Music Masters honoree

By Chuck Yarborough, The Plain Dealer
September 05, 2013

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Rolling Stones have forced a lot of changes in their half-century of making rock 'n' roll. And now, there’s one more:

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has renamed its American Music Masters award, dubbing it simply the Annual Music Masters. That's because the 18th recipient is the seminal British band, which will be honored in a weeklong celebration in October, culminating in an all-star concert.

“We started out focusing on the early influences inductees – Jimmie Rodgers, Muddy Waters, Hank Williams,’’ said Lauren Onkey, the museum’s vice president of education and public programs and the woman who oversees the award. “What it means to move on historically is, you’ve got to break the borders of America if you really want to trace the history of rock 'n' roll.’’

It’s also the first time that the award has celebrated an entire band rather than a single individual, other than the collaboration that was Fats Domino and musical partner Dave Bartholomew.

“It’s Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It): The Music of the Rolling Stones’’ begins Monday, Oct. 21, and is capped by a concert at PlayhouseSquare’s State Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.

Unfortunately, the Stones themselves – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, who are on a worldwide 50th-anniversary tour -- will not be at the show, Onkey said.

“Given their incredibly busy schedule, they will not be able to attend the program,’’ Onkey confirmed. “But they’re fully aware of it.’’

That doesn’t mean the Stones won’t be represented musically, though. Not by a long shot. In addition to the lectures, films, conferences and such that typically are part of the week's calendar of events, many of those in what a pleased Onkey called “the house band’’ for the Saturday night concert have connections with the Stones.

Lisa Fischer, Bernard Fowler and Bobby Keys are longtime participants in Stones’ tours. They, plus Hall of Famer Ian McLagan of the Faces, Steve Madaio, Ivan Neville, Waddy Wachtel and Willie Weeks will be under the direction of Grammy-winning drummer and musical director Steve Jordan. All have connections to the Stones.

Jordan was a member of and a songwriter and co-producer for Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards’ side project, Keith Richards and the X-pensive Winos. Jordan also toured with Eric Clapton and was part of the John Mayer Trio.

“One of the things when you look at this band, too, is it makes you think about the range of recording that the Stones have done over the years,’’ Onkey said.

“The thing about the Stones is that they’ve been influenced by people previously honored in this program, like Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Fats Domino,’’ she said.

The idea of honoring the Stones created a buzz within the confines of the Rock Hall as soon as it was proposed, said Onkey, who noted that current President and CEO Greg Harris considers himself a huge fan.

“The museum is proud to be honoring the Rolling Stones during their 50th anniversary year,’’ Harris said in the Rock Hall’s prepared release. “In addition to our blockbuster exhibit, which has attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world, we will take this opportunity to dig deeper into the story of this groundbreaking band that challenged and changed the face of rock and roll.’’

Onkey said she is and remains intrigued by the idea of “how they created the idea of a rock 'n' roll band, and they’ve never strayed from that idea. Having such a great band to do it is what I’m excited about as we go about selecting songs.’’

Ah, song selection. That’s just one of the happy “problems’’ facing Rock Hall organizers and Jordan. The Stones have such a vast catalog that traces the evolution of rock, almost from the Bill Haley & the Comets sound of the late 1950s to the British Invasion, to country, blues and rockabilly, to the driving sounds of today.

“We have to pick the songs everyone wants to hear but still provide a range over the course of the night, making sure we hit a lot of different eras that tell the story and its complexity,’’ Onkey said.

The exhibit Harris referenced, “50 Years of Satisfaction,’’ opened early this summer and runs through March 2014.

Yeah, thought the same thing myself. Also, only one guitarist listed. Waddy's more than capable of playing any two Stones parts, but I'd be willing to bet there will be a 2nd guitar player. Let the Taylor speculation begin...

Yeah it's too bad they picked that week to honour them, when they're already scheduled to do their tour of Ireland! What dumb luck!

That's Bobby on "Return To Sender", depending on who you believe. Session logs say Boots Randolph.

Bobby wrote about the Elvis session in his book Every Night's A Saturday Night, and talked about it in this interview promoting it:

In the spring of 1962, while in Los Angeles with Knox, Keys got a call from an old Lubbock friend, Glen D. Hardin, telling him a sax player had canceled at the last minute and asking if he could fill in at a session that was about to start. Keys hauled his baritone sax down to the studio and got ready to play.

"I was already in the studio when Elvis arrived," he said. "There was definitely a change in the atmosphere when the door opened up in the control room and he walked in. I didn't know the session was for Elvis. I was very surprised. It scared the hell out of me. I hadn't been playing that long. But the part (on "Return to Sender" ) wasn't difficult. It's still one of the coolest things I've ever done."

[journalstar.com]

But as noted above, his claim has been dismissed by others, so maybe Bobby "misremembered".

Making up non existent stories involving your heroes must be a trait of musicians born on that date, as we've seen from Keith's 'Muddy Waters painting the ceiling' nonsense. There's no sessionography that I'm aware of that lists Bobby Keys ever playing with Elvis. When did he claim they worked together?

Thanks.

Played on an Elvis session in Hollywood when he was 18 (27th March 1962)?

His arse, he did. It's Boots Randolph, who was Elvis' sax player of choice throughout that era.

I was gonna buy that book, too. If thats an example of the make believe nonsense passed off as fact in it, I think I'll give it a miss!

But it is Bobby on Dion's The Wanderer, no? I wonder if him playing with Buddy Holly has any factual truth to it, ha-ha!

As I understand it, he played in Buddy Knox's band when they were on tour with Holly. I dont think Holly would have had a sax player in his band, surely? Holly of course died when Keys was only 15. Played WITH him? Quite possibly as theyre from the same area. Played in his band? I doubt it.

Just stumbled across an earlier thread on here on Bobby's dubious session credits

[www.iorr.org]

I'm pretty sure its not him on 'The Wanderer', to be honest. According to this story, it's Buddy Lucas. [www.rockabilly.nl]


Pretty poor form to write an autobiography inventing stories about playing on legendary sessions when it was actually two other great musicians who are now dead and cant dispute his nonsensical claims.

This is getting a bit ridiculous - I'm expecting to read next that Bobby claims its him doing that sax solo on 'Born to Run'.

Hmm, well what exactly are Bobby's verified pre-Rolling Stones credits? I understand he was part of Bobby Vee's backup, but is he featured on his records? Obviously, it isn't just a birthday he shares with Keith: it's his tall-tales, too!

Thanks. Very odd. Ernst Jorgensen's 'Complete Recording Sessions' book (which is seen as pretty definitive) lists it as Boots Randolph for the entire 'Girls Girls Girls' soundtrack session (Glenn D Hardin - later Elvis' pianist in the 70s - isnt listed as playing on the session either, but Dudley Brooks is). Randolph is on record as saying he played baritone sax on 'Return to sender'.

Maybe the birthday thing is a lie as well, just to get in good with Keith.

Has anyone ever verified the birth certificate?

Maybe he's been blowing smoke longer than sax?! eye popping smiley

For a hall of fame they sure are missing some facts in that announcement. I still would like to hear that band though. Well maybe not the background singers. I have never cared for them and never though the Stones needed them . Actually I think when they brought them on board it fueled the fire that they were turning into a Vegas stage act. But that's a different rant.smiling smiley
