The Rolling Stones begin their US tour immediately

A few days ago, 80-year-old Mick Jagger warmed up with a trip to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. The concert at NRG Stadium will be the first of a total of 18 concerts in the United States (and one in Vancouver, Canada) that the Rolling Stones will perform through July 17.

British music magazine NME The warm-up was done in a different way – with an interview with original Stones guitarist Bill Wyman. He left the band in 1993 after more than 30 years.

That is, he announced that he was shelving the bass already in 1991. However, the rest of the band did not take it seriously. They didn't realize he wouldn't be joining until two years later, when they were on tour again.

– I've had enough. That was half my life, and I thought I had other things I wanted to do. “I wanted to work in archaeology, write books, exhibit photographs and play cricket,” he says.

Wyman used to read about ancient cultures while the band was on tour. He also reveals that he is a devoted stamp collector, and also collects Roman coins.

Since then, he has made occasional guest appearances with the Rolling Stones, which today consists of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood. They recently released the album “Hackney Diamonds” where Wyman plays bass on one song.
