50 and still Rolling

HBO's 'Crossfire Hurricane' preems at the Ziegfeld

The Rolling Stones stormed down the Ziegfeld red carpet at HBO’s “Crossfire Hurricane” preem Tuesday, refusing to unveil any further stage plans to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Instead, members of the band, who have only five concerts in London and one in New York booked so far, chose to elaborate on personal endeavors.

Naturally, guitarist Keith Richards led off with “I can’t make up my mind of what I want to do. But then again I became famous for not being able to do that.”

“I think I should probably get married,” said Ronnie Wood, who’s hoping the third time’s a charm with fiancee Sally Humphreys. “Maybe in Paris. We’ve been rehearsing there and I love it.”

Drummer Charlie Watts immediately smiled when he heard the mention of France, considering the group’s time spent there in 1972 resulted in the historic “Exile on Main St.” album.

“Maybe I’ll take a vacation there,” offered Watts. “It brings back a lot of good memories.”

Mick Jagger didn’t have any future plans to share, but did give himself much credit for the emotional evening.

“It’s a good thing I booked the Ziegfeld for this event 50 years ago,” he joked. “Now, what would we have done if I didn’t?”

Brett Morgan helmed the HBO doc.
