The personification of cool! The Rolling Stones, without a doubt, have one of the most iconic songs about drinking on the planet with their 1969 track ‘Honkey Tonk Woman’ off of the band’s 10th studio album, Let It Bleed. The track would over the course of several years and decades become a fixture in bars and on jukeboxes across the United States, and given the subject matter, it certainly is no surprise. While no outlet would ever encourage drinking, there is no doubt that Mick Jagger always finds a way to simply be the coolest person in the room or, in this case, outdoors.
Such as the aforementioned example here. As the band was most recently in Lyon over in France, the beloved frontman for THe Rolling Stones took it upon himself to take a look at the sights of France’s best. Taking to social media via Instagram and decked out in a casual yet smart all-white getup which is accented with an ever-so-dapper white cap. Here, Jagger can be seen taking a swig of a frosty adult beverage from outside the oldest rum distillery called La Taverne du Perroquet. The video was shot during the latest leg of the Rolling Stones tour on Monday, it can be seen below.
During a past interview with The Quietus, Oasis legend Noel Gallagher reflected on the aforementioned ‘Let It Bleed’ and why it’s one of his favorite albums of all time Credit to the outlet for the below.
“Delia Smith baked the cake for the front cover of this album,” Gallagher said. “I guess I could have got Yotam Ottolenghi to make me a meringue for the front cover of The High Flying Birds or got Heston Blumenthal to make me some barbed wire ice cream for it.”
He continued: ““I could have gone for Their Satanic Majesties Request, it’s got ‘2,000 Light Years From Home’ and ‘She’s A Rainbow’ on it,” he said. For context, Their Satanic Majesties Request was the album where The Rolling Stones went psychedelic.”
He concluded: “And again for years I just had the Rolled Gold best of but this was the first album I heard by them when I really thought, ‘Oh yeah … this is what it’s about … they’re not just ‘Satisfaction’ and ‘Let’s Spend The Night Together,’” Gallagher added. “‘Gimme Shelter‘ and ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want, that’s more like it.”
