Keith Richards Hints Rolling Stones Tour Is Likely

NICHOLAS ROBERTS/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After coming back together for a few gigs, it looks like The Rolling Stones will be touring soon.

According to Keith Richards, it's not a question of if The Rolling Stones will tour -- it's when.

"Really, all you're going to have to do is wait for the announcement," Richards tells Rolling Stone magazine.  

The band was so throughly satisfied with the five 50th anniversary shows they just played in London, New York and New Jersey, that they are ready to hit the road. Mick Jagger says there have been quite a few offers and, "I'm going to see what's on the table and discuss it with everyone."

In a related story, the Coachella Music Festival has hinted that Stones will be this year's headliner.

Mick Jagger Presents Top Ten List on "Letterman"

Bobby Bank/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Mick Jagger presented the top ten list on Tuesday's edition of Late Show with David Letterman on CBS. The subject of the countdown was "The Top Ten Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years in Rock ‘n’ Roll."

As he read the list, the Rolling Stones frontman poked fun at the success of the Maroon 5 hit "Moves Like Jagger." He said, "You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger."

The top lesson learned by Jagger: "You start out playing rock 'n' roll so you can have sex and do drugs. But you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock 'n' roll and have sex."

Keith Richards had been expected to join Jagger on the show, but he was nowhere to be found. The Stones will play the 12.12.12 benefit concert at New York's Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, then play two shows in Newark, New Jersey, later in the week.

Here's the complete list of the "Top Ten Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years in Rock ‘n’ Roll":

10. "Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album."
9. "Never take relationship advice from Phil Spector."
8. "Before shouting 'Hi Seattle!' make sure you're in Seattle."
7. "You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger."
6. "Everybody you meet after you become famous is only interested in you as a person."
5. "Song royalties are great, but even they can't match the guaranteed cash flow of a reverse mortgage."
4. "A good way to keep yourself entertained is to sign every 10th autograph 'Doris Goldblatt.'"
3. "Be considerate of other hotel guests -- trash your room by 10 p.m."
2. "You can't always get what you want -- like a good joke on the top ten list."
1. "You start out playing rock 'n' roll so you can have sex and do drugs. But you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock 'n' roll and have sex."

Author Claims David Bowie, Mick Jagger Hooked Up in the ‘70s

RB/Redferns via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- David Bowie and Mick Jagger’s friendship was once, apparently, a friends-with-benefits situation. In his new biography of the Rolling Stones front man, Mick, author Christopher Andersen describes how Bowie and Jagger coupled during their 1970s heyday.

“Where Jagger was still coy about his own sexual preferences, Bowie made no effort to conceal the fact that both he and his wife were bisexual and often shared partners,” Andersen writes in an excerpt of the book published by the New York Daily News. “’Mick looked at David and wondered if maybe this was the wave of the future,’ said Leee Black Childers, former executive vice president of MainMan, the management firm that handled Bowie. ‘Mick was very conscious of doing whatever it takes to stay hot; David was the hottest thing around at the time.’”

Angie Bowie, the “Ziggy Stardust” singer’s first wife, recalled walking in on the two in bed.

“Angie went upstairs to her bedroom, slowly pushed the door open, and there they were: Mick Jagger and David Bowie, naked in bed together, sleeping,” Andersen writes. “Both men woke up with a start. ‘Oh, hello,’ said Bowie, clearly taken by surprise. ‘How are you?’”

“I wish it had been me with Mick,” Angie Bowie told Andersen. “I’ve always thought Mick must be a wild man in bed. He is a very sexy guy.”

Reps for Jagger and Bowie did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.

In a 2002 interview with Blender magazine, Bowie addressed being openly bisexual during the ‘70s, saying he “had no problem with people knowing” about it but felt that declaring himself as such “stood in the way of so much I wanted to do” in America, which he called “a very puritanical place.”

Kristen Wiig: Emotional Sendoff for ‘Saturday Night Live’ Favorite

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- There were plenty of laughs, a few tears and a whole lot of dancing as Kristen Wiig was given a Saturday Night Live sendoff to remember.

In the final sketch of the night, host Mick Jagger, who played a high school principal, called Wiig, who was in a cap and gown, up to the stage.

“Many of you are moving onto college, but I’d like to take a moment to say goodbye to one particular student who is leaving this summer to become a nun,” Jagger said.

Wiig then shed her cap and gown and danced with Jagger, each cast member and executive producer Lorne Michaels to the Rolling Stones song “She’s A Rainbow,” followed by the band’s hit “Goodbye Ruby Tuesday.”

The popular cast member, who appeared on the show for seven seasons, wiped away tears as she danced and hugged cast members all the way through the closing credits.

Wiig, who played everyone from Nancy Pelosi to the obnoxious Aunt Linda and the overly excitable Target lady on the show, was nominated for an Academy Award earlier this year for writing Bridesmaids. Wiig also starred in the film.

“It will be a huge blow to the show,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kristen was talking about leaving a while ago. With her movie success, it’s no surprise.”
