Rolling Stones to dig out the classic for live dates, George Michael defends pal Liam Gallagher, RZA says Wu-Tang reunion possible, Bryan Ferry embraces The Jazz Age... Daily Hot List
Thursday, 18 October
The Rolling Stones have posted their rehearsal set list online head of their four dates in the UK and US next month and it makes interesting reading. Along with plenty of hits, it seems the band are truly celebrating their 50th anniversary by including the likes of Little Red Rooster, No Fade Away and The Last Time in the set, along with Lady Jane which they haven't played live since the 1960s.
George Michael and Liam Gallagher are good friends, it seems. After it was suggested the Beady Eye frontman spent the whole night in the bar at a recent gig by the former Wham singer, Michael took to Twitter to defend him. "Please don't hold it against Liam that he popped off to the bar at Saturday's show. He's a lovely guy and has always been really friendly to me and very complimentary about my music," he wrote. "Anyway he was getting a load hassle from people who spotted him so its not surprising he went for a bevvy :)"

RZA says he is keen to reform WU-Tang Clan to mark the 20th anniversary of Enter The WU-Tang (36 Chambers) next year, but the rapper-turned-filmed director will have to be in charge of everything - as he was on the group's early albums. "I think we can do it again," he explained. "I've been talking to some of the guys, I was like, Yo, look, I would suggest that you put down everything you know, and trust me one more time."
