NME writes: 'Keef’s riffs are fresh as ever, Jagger yelps, claps and croons about getting hammered like he’s still living it up down the LSE bar and there’s a Zep-tastic breakdown that thankfully stops the whole thing sounding too much like Primal Scream’s ‘Rocks’ – a concept that would launch music into an inescapable loop of influence as confusing as a bad time travel plot.'
'No, the first new Stones song in seven years is a revitalising reminder of what made them great in the first place, a tune that will sit seamlessly amongst their classics.
The band, which consists of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts, debuted their song, which was produced by Don Was, on BBC Radio 2 this morning during Chris Evans' morning show.

This will be welcome news for 65-year old Ronnie who has been dealing with issues regarding his ex-wife Jo Wood.

Ronnie has set his lawyers on the auction, which is due to happen on October 27, and is determined to stop his ex-wife.
The pair separated in 2008 due to the affair Ronnie had with a 20-year old cocktail waitress before he began dating model Ekaterina Ivanova, 23.
The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant said: ‘I did tell Ronnie everything I was
doing. I told him about the auction before the summer and I talked to
him in May or June time and said to him, “Would you like to put anything
in the auction Ronnie because it would help create a bit more of a
stir” He said, “No, but good luck Jo.” '
Doom and gloom:
'Those were his words. But now
he’s seen what’s in the auction . . . he sent me a text saying he’s
got his lawyers involved and has sent a letter to my office. '
sent one back saying, “I don’t understand why you would get the lawyer
in. You can buy anything you want back Ronnie.” He hasn’t replied.'
