At twenty three, jazz singer songwriter Amy Winehouse may be the hottest female singing talent in the world today, she may have cracked America, sung with the Rolling Stones and be lauded by the likes of Prince, Elton John, Jay Z and P Diddy,she may be a married, tattooed, multi millionaire with a reputation for hellraising and doing exactly what she wants when she wants but the dimuitive Jewish girl from North London is still very much Daddy’s little princess.

The Rolling Stones 2.

© Words  by Wendy Rose Watson & Dr. Richard Williamson

We saw the Rolling Stones at Chicago's United Center on June 6, 2013,midway through their '50 and Counting' tour.  They played great and gave the fans an outstanding, if not particularly new, show. You could dun them fairly for playing things too safe in places but by and large, they did their reputation justice and deserve much credit for delivering major league guitar  mastery with powerful, fluid  ensemble playing.

And more importantly, will the record industry survive?

This is an extract from Simon Wells’ new book on the historic arrest and imprisonment of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger in 1967. “Butterfly On A Wheel” charts the extraordinary timeline of events that ultimately led to two of the Rolling Stones finding themselves behind bars. This act would spark a chain of events that would lead to public outrage, questions in the House of Commons, and the editor of The Times newspaper likening Mick Jagger to a ‘butterfly on a wheel’.
