Rolling Stones, Monty Python All Coming Back With New Projects, Walkers


I’ll have what they had. The Rolling Stones and Monty Python, each groups of old mostly British men, are making announcements this morning about new projects. These guys certainly have a lot of energy. We don’t know yet if the Stones have more touring news, or a new album, or a product line of vitamins. The announcement is coming shortly.

Monty Python is reuniting. This is what I know exclusively: the Python have been without a manager for a long long time. They have recently signed with Jim Beach, the mastermind behind Queen. Beach put together the West End musical “We Will Rock You.” He’s also staged the Queen tours with Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert singing lead.

Beach knows how to make money, which the Python members need. Keep looking here for updates before the official press conference on Thursday.
