Foo Fighter Backing Jagger On SNL

Anticipation that other members of the Rolling Stones were likely to appear with Mick Jagger on the May 19 season ending episode of Saturday Night Live got dialed down by an Inside TV report that claims the Stones front man will actually be backed by Arcade Fire and joined by Foo Fighters & Them Crooked Vultures drummer Dave Grohl.  Earlier reports claim that Jagger, Ron Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts have been rehearsing in the NYC area (story) triggered immediate speculation that the Stones would all perform together, would make a 2013 tour announcement, or do both.  While anything is still possible, prospects that the Stones will perform on the intimate SNL stage with Mick seem as slim as the man himself.  Grohl has the distinction of having been a musical guest on the show 4x more frequently than Jagger.   He has appeared with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as well as his own groups, Nirvana, Foo Fighters and the Vultures. The May 19 appearance will be Grohl's 12th on the late night NBC comedy show and just Jagger's 3rd.
