VoodooChileInWOnderl Rolling Stones to Write Soundtrack for Rocky VI

WEST CHESTER, Penna. - Sylvester Stallone announced yesterday that the Rolling Stones have agreed to write the soundtrack for Rocky VI, whose working title is Rocky Balboa: The Beating Goes On.

Sipping a Metamucil-Carrot Juice smoothie at a local health food store, Stallone, 60, told Postcards from the Pug Bus that he was looking forward to working with the Stones, 245, "who have been given up for dead more times than I have."

There are, indeed, obvious parallels between Rocky's career and the Stones'. Both were charmingly scruffy newcomers given little chance of wresting the heavyweight title from their opponents: Apollo Creed in Rocky's case; the Beatles in the Stones' match-up. Each prevailed, however, when their opponents couldn't beat the count or Yoko Ono, respectively. After snatching victory from the defeat of jaws, both Rocky and the Stones allowed excess to go to their heads and their performances declined.

Stallone was knocked from pilferage to post in the brain-numbing Rockies III, IV, and V. The Stones followed anywhere the wind blew them from the undercooked Goat's Head Soup to their latest best-
album-in-years, A Bigger Bang, which would have been the lamest effort by British old farts if Paul McCartney hadn't released Chaos and Cremation in the Backyard. In McCartney's yard, more is always less.

True to the Stones penchant for copping other people's licks, A Bigger Bang even contains a "protest song," Sweet Neo-Con, an obvious attempt to jump on the bandwagon driving with verve and elan by a much younger, much more exciting Green Day. The difference between the Stones and Green Day, of course, is the fact that Green Day plays its anti-Bush music in public while Mick Jagger gives interviews saying he really wasn't criticizing the president in Sweet Neo-Con, which has yet to see the light of stage.

In addition to writing the music for Rocky VI, Jagger is being considered for the role of Rocky's manager, formerly played by Burgess Meredith, who died in 1997 at the age of 89.

"We'll have to make Mick look younger for the role," said Stallone, "but other than that I think he'd be a natural.

Jagger has already written a lame film score for Jude Law.

Jair Can't believe. Now you made my day, Gerardo, oh yeah!

Today I woke up with a awful humor (after dream on Gazza ), already fought with my dog, my colleague Paulo, my boss Silvia, my client Carol and now this?!

Is this the beggining of the total & immoral decadence or what?

Monkey Woman Don't worry, Ju, it's satire. Check the "Britney's baby" story too... "Postcards from the Pug Bus is a satirical Web site that contains news of fresh disaster published daily". No relationship with Voodoopug, though!

time is on my side Excellent news!!!

I always thought Jagger and Stallone were a team waiting to happen. Their musical collarboration will be talked about for years to come.

Can't wait for the soundtrack CD to be released. Will Stallone be the producer??? Thought I read somewhere where they were spotted together emerging from a health club sipping some sort of exotic smoothies (the ones with the foam on top). Perhaps they were already discussing business ($$$$$$$). My guess is the soundtrack will be a big seller and sell more than the obviously lame A Bigger Bang.
