Keith Richards says he won't appear alongside Mick Jagger when the Rolling Stones frontman hosts Saturday Night Live on May 19. Mick will both host and perform on the show, but Keith denied rumors of a cameo this week while speaking with Rolling Stone.
"I spoke to Mick and he said it's something that he said yes to many months ago, so he's just doing it," Richards says. "He's on his own."
The group was originally rumored for a tour this year to celebrate their 50th anniversary in the music business, although Keith told the magazine that 2013 is really the official anniversary:
"I have a feeling that's more realistic . . . The Stones always really considered 1963 to be 50 years, because Charlie [Watts] didn't actually join until January. We look upon 2012 as sort of the year of conception, but the birth is next year."
