MICK JAGGER PRODUCING JAMES BROWN BIOPIC




Mick Jagger's Jagged Films is producing the upcoming biopic on the "The Godfather Of Soul," the late-James Brown. The Telegraphreported that the film will be directed by Tate Taylor, best known for the Oscar Award-winning 2011 civil rights-based drama, The Help. Taylor is hoping to draw from The Help cast for the new movie, which will star Chadwick Boseman who is from Anderson, best known for his turn as Jackie Robinson in the recent, 42, to portray Brown over the course of his life.

The film, which will be shot in Mississippi, will feature Jagger in an unspecified role. Jagger, Keith Richards, and Little Richard figure in to the story and will be played by still-to-be cast actors. No start date has been announced for the production

STEPHEN STILLS - KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD TEAM-UP RELEASED TODAY



Out today (August 27th) is Can't Get Enough, the Rides' debut album, featuring Stephen Stills, blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg. Can't Get Enough features original band material alongside covers of Neil Young's "Rockin' In The Free World' and the Stooges' "Search And Destroy." The band kicks off its 15-date tour on Thursday and Friday night (August 28th and 29th) at New York City's Iridium Jazz Club and winds things down on September 27th in Reno, Nevada's Grand Sierra Resort & Casino.

Stephen Stills came away from the band's sessions raving about the chemistry between the three players -- especially guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd: ["He's marvelous! And Barry Goldberg and I have been, y'know, putzing around with, y'know, a few very simple old-school blues songs, y'know, and rock songs, y'know, like might've been written in the late-'60s. So, we started with those and some covers and everything that we did just came off flying. And luckily, we, we had the experience to set up to record, like 'Don't even pick up your instruments until everything is ready.' And sure enough, we got everything in one or two takes."]
