Jagger to Sing on Matchbox Album
Mick Jagger will appear on Matchbox Twenty's third record, which the band will record next year.
Returning a favor to Matchbox frontman Rob Thomas -- who co-wrote and contributed vocals to
"Visions of Paradise" from Jagger's recent solo album, Goddess in the Doorway -- Jagger sings on the
band's "I Got a Disease."
Even after co-writing and singing the smash hit "Smooth" for Santana, Thomas was not above being
star-struck in the presence of the Rolling Stones singer. "I was just a nervous kid in a room with Mick
Jagger trying not to look like an idiot and I still looked like an idiot," he says. "But at least we got a good
song out of it."
Matt Serlectic, who produced 1996's Yourself or Someone Like You and 2000's Mad Season, will again
man the boards. "We're going to start pre-production at the beginning of the year, so by the summer we
should start making a record," Thomas says. "We've got enough songs now to make two records, but
once we cut those down to the ones that are really good, then cut those down to the ones we think are
really great, we'll probably have to still write another half a record."
