The Rolling Stones frontman, who will tour America next spring with his iconic band, says live shows give him a rush that can't be matched and is the reason that at 75, he still loves touring.

NEW YORK (AP) — Eric Idle is writing a memoir, and Monty Python fans can guess the title: "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life."
"We used to be babe magnets. Now we're fridge magnets," Idle said in a statement Wednesday. "I thought it was time to tell my tale before I suffer from Hamnesia, which is what happens to elderly actors."
Liam Gallagher will support The Rolling Stones at London Stadium next month.
The former Oasis frontman is set to open for Sir Mick Jagger and co on May 22, for what will be one of the most rock 'n' roll nights of the year.

In a stern warning to social media users who tell them to call it a day, the 70-year-old rocker fumed: "I say get off your a*** and get working while you can.
Minnesota music mogul writes about his life with Elvis, Jimi, Janis and Prince
Before Minneapolis entertainment impresario Owen Husney became Princes first manager, he was a concert promoter who hung out with Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger.
Janis Joplin once made a pass at him. He served as publicist and pimp for movie star/singer Richard Harris. He was even a rock star of sorts with the High Spirits, a Twin Cities garage band that had a 1965 local hit, Turn on Your Love Light.
It’s a gilded piffle for sure, but one teeming with clever, entertaining bits, executed flawlessly by a gifted company.

Noel Gallagher didn't like his brother Liam Gallagher dominating Oasis' sound with his "f***ing loud" vocals.
The 'Fort Knox' hitmaker says it was a "constant battle" in the Britpop group - which came to an end following a backstage bust-up before a festival appearance in Paris in 2009 - when Liam wanted his lead vocals to be the loudest instrument heard, as the 50-year-old guitarist prefers the lyrics to be a mystery to fans.
Tech-savvy seniors create a silver boom for businesses
"What a drag it is getting old," Mick Jagger first whined on "Mother's Little Helper" from the Rolling Stones' 1965 "Aftermath" album.
"Hope I die before I get old," the Who's Roger Daltrey growled the same year on "My Generation."
"What a drag it is getting old," Mick Jagger first whined on "Mother's Little Helper" from the Rolling Stones' 1966 "Aftermath" album.
But for those who first heard those plaints way back when and are still walking this Earth, getting older isn't so bad. Being part of the huge baby boom generation even has its advantages. Boomers have numerical clout, savings and Social Security, which adds up to significant buying power. And needs that must be met.
Mick Jagger wanted M.C. Escher, but the feeling wasn’t mutual.
As the story goes, Jagger wrote Escher in 1969, asking him to design the cover art for a Rolling Stones’ greatest hits collection. Jagger didn’t address him as M.C., though. Instead, he called Escher by his first name, Maurits. Escher wrote Jagger’s assistant, declining the offer, and finished his letter with, “By the way, please tell Mr. Jagger I am not Maurits to him.”

Nile Rodgers has the ultimate rock ’n’ roll resume. Rodgers has produced records for David Bowie and David Lee Roth, Duran Duran and Mick Jagger.
But he also has a stellar pop resume, having crafted hits for Madonna, Diana Ross and Sister Sledge. Come to think of it, his dance CV is pretty amazing.

Sir Mick Jagger says a newspaper editorial saved him from prison in 1967.
The Rolling Stones frontman was arrested on minor drug charges and was facing up to three months in prison but when The Times ran an editorial insisting he should be treated the same as any other citizen, he was quickly released.
Mick told The Times: "What did it mean to me personally? That editorial got me out jail. One day it dropped, and the next thing I was out."
LONDON (AP) — Rock superstar Mick Jagger says a newspaper editorial was responsible for helping him avoid prison for a minor drug offense in 1967.
The Rolling Stones frontman tells the Times of London on Saturday that he had been sentenced to three months in jail not because of the severity of his crime but because band members were being "scapegoats" by an older generation critical of their lifestyle.
Review: San Antonio’s Crossroads a devilishly good late-night snack spot
The soundtrack fits — sharp yelps from Mick Jagger and the opening chords of “Sympathy for the Devil” ring out overhead. Take a few paces down a red brick-lined driveway and step into the sweltering courtyard of Crossroads Kitchen, a late night nosh spot tucked in between Faust Tavern and a Tobin Hill home converted into a neon green guitar shop.

Although the 23-year-old singer has been tipped to portray the Rolling Stones rocker on the big screen, Harry insisted he has not been approached about the project.
He told The Sunday Times Magazine: "I've honestly never heard anything about the film. I don't even think it's a thing."
Harry Styles' producer says the star reminds him of Sir Mick Jagger.
Although Jeff Bhasker - who worked with Harry on his eponymous solo album - wants the star to be seen as his own person rather than fostering previous comparisons with the Rolling Stones frontman, he admitted that the pair have a number of similarities.
Harry Styles, "Harry Styles" (Columbia)
When listening to Harry Styles' solo debut, it will be hard to not think of David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Elton John and other rock icons who came decades before the former boy bander.
The good thing for Styles, 23, is some of his fans might be too young to recognize the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. But despite looking to the past for his sound apart from One Direction, Styles proves he's worth checking out.
The Rolling Stones can’t play UK due to ‘lack of available venues’
The Rolling Stones couldn't add UK dates to their European tour due to a "lack of available venues".
The legendary rock group have apologised to their loyal fans for not being able to put on any shows on their forthcoming 'No Filter' run as they have claimed there are a number of "sporting events" hogging up all of the stadiums.
