Age old problem

Forget parties, Rolling Stones just want help working the TV
Band leaves hedonistic days behind with requests to htoels for clear notes on how to use technology

Rock stars traditionally throw televisions out of their hotel windows in nights of debauchery. But it would seem the Rolling Stones now have an issue, in common with many people their age, with just how to turn the thing on.

According to a leaked rider for their recent US tour, Sir Mick Jagger and co have a standard list of backstage requirements for a rock band: a never-ending flow of alcohol and cigarettes, and butlers on hand 24 hours a day. But there is a detail that belies the band’s age: they also need a set of written instructions on how to use all the electronics in their hotel rooms.

Sing along now: "I know, it's only remote control, but I can't use it."
