Jagger invites Clinton to join him on stage
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is looking forward to meeting up with Bill Clinton tonight and would be happy to jam with the sax-playing former US president.
'If he wants to, we'll do it,' said the singer, who confirmed that Mr Clinton - in town to address a conference of CEOs - will be backstage at the first of the Stones' two Forty Licks concerts in Hong Kong.
'We did a concert for environmental causes in Los Angeles and he was involved with that, so he introduced us there,' Jagger said yesterday. 'We've met a few times and I'm glad he's here and is gonna come to the show.'
But Jagger said an on-stage jam was unlikely. 'We asked him on the last show [in LA], but he didn't want to do it. I think he was being polite.'
The 60-year-old said the band was delighted to finally play Hong Kong after 41 years in the business.
