"Exile On Main Street" Week

May 10-14 is "Exile on Main Street Week" on Jimmy Fallon's late night talk show.

He will have a musical guest play a song from Exile each night. Tonight is Green Day; then it's Keith Urban on Tuesday, Sheryl Crow on Wednesday, and Phish on Thursday. (I think there will be other musicians playing with the show's regular band.)

On Friday, Mick Jagger will introduce an excerpt from the new documentary "Stones in Exile" (the full 151-minute DVD will be released in June).

I will have a similar Exile-related post on Thursday.

Ugh, I gotta wait until 12:35...

Green Day does "Rip This Joint" tonight, according to those in the know.

I'd much rather read several months' worth of your Exile-related posts than endure Jimmy Fallon explain to me why this album is so good.

Songs:

Green Day: Rip this Joint
Keith Urban: Tumbling Dice
Sheryl Crow: All Down The Line
Phish: Loving Cup

Okay, Phish doing Loving Cup might be worth it.

You might like what I have planned for Thursday then.

Figured S. Crow would do Happy.

Video can be seen here.

Meh. Vocals are far too stilted, and the other guitarist (who is that guy? isn't GD a trio?) and sax player do most of the actual Stonesy RTJ work.

Thank goodness for YouTube, I can watch vids of this when they're all posted, no need to stay up late and suffer through Fallon.

I find the inclusion of Sheryl Crow quite unbeliveable. I guess they couldn't find anyone with a modicum of talent or orginality.

Sound cool, I'll have to take a look at the video

All Down The Line from Ladies and Gentlemen (to be released later this year!!!) can be seen here!

Rock and Roll? This is Exhibit A.
