Mick Jagger Still Got The Blues

(Gibson) Earlier this year, when Mick Jagger was tapped to pay tribute to late soul legend Solomon Burke at the Grammys, the rock star picked an unlikely choice to join him on guitar. Not his fellow Rolling Stone Keith Richards or past collaborator Lenny Kravitz – but former Tony! Toni! Tonι! member Raphael Saadiq. The R&B/rock guitarist recently spoke to about his time with Mick.

"When Mick Jagger called me, it was just kind of funny – because it's Mick Jagger," he said. "He's a blues guy, that's what I grew up playing, so it was kind of surreal because he's such a regular guy. Even though he's like the Holy Grail to what he does, he doesn't come off like that."

Saadiq said that, musically, Jagger was a perfect fit for the situation. "That's why he's so dope, because he just walks in, hops out the car, says 'what up' to the whole band real cool, picks up a harmonica and starts blowin' some Howlin' Wolf," he said. "It don't get no better than that. So, getting the phone call is funny, because it takes a British guy to come all the way to America to find me and say 'Let's do the Grammys,' when I wouldn't have got that call from the Grammys to say 'come play with Mick.' Mick called me and said, 'Let's go to the Grammys' and didn't tell the Grammys, just said, 'I'm taking you, let's roll.'" more on this story is an official news provider for the Day in Rock.
