Hi this is Leslie Harris, and I’ve loved the Rolling Stones for as long as I can remember.

The Rolling Stones released their first album in 1964, and they released their last album of new material in 2005. On October 20th, they will be releasing a new album called Hackney Diamonds. This is also the first album they’ve released since the death of original drummer Charlie Watts in 2021. Keith Richards said, “Ever since Charlie’s gone, it’s been different, he’s number four. Of course he’s missed. It would have been a lot harder without Charlie’s blessing.”

The new album will actually feature two tracks the Charlie recorded before he passed away. Steve Jordan, who played with them on the last leg of their tour, sits at the drum set for the rest of the album.

The new single, called Angry, has been released. The video is really fun, and features some old clips of the band.

Lady Gaga makes an appearance on the album, with rumors of Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder also guesting.

I’m so excited about this album. Are you? Let me know in the Facebook comments.
