Chuck Leavell Shares Thoughts On The Rolling Stones’ Tour Plans

Longtime Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell recently spoke at length with WBAI’s Morning Dew hosts Don Grossinger and Bob O’Donnell in an interview that aired this past Sunday. During the interview, Leavell shared his thoughts on the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary tour plans.

“I’ll give you my gut feelings on it…I just can’t imagine the milestone passing without activity,” said Leavell. So, my best guess is that, yes, it’ll happen. But only Mick and Keith and the inner circle know any details.”

Leavell also discussed his history with the Allman Brothers Band, Sea Level, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, as well as performing with Ray Charles, Dr. John, and more recently, John Mayer, whose tour was just cancelled due to a throat ailment.

You can listen to the full interview for the next two weeks on the WBAI Morning Dew archive page.

Thanks for the mention,! Just so folks know, listeners just need to go to the April 8th “Morning Dew” Link to hear the full 2 Hour Career-spanning Interview with Chuck Leavell. (Just one note, due to an Engineering error, the first two minutes of the Broadcast were actually repeating the older April 1 segment, but was quickly corrected to run the entire Chuck Leavell Interview… : )

Chuck Leavell is not only a great musician but is also a great conservationist and family man. He needs to schedule more concert tours.
