With his much-anticipated fourth solo album due in November, Rolling Stones vocalist Mick Jagger continues to add to his celebrity guest list as he puts the finishing touches on the LP.
Among the latest stars to step into the recording booth with the Jagger-meister are U2's Bono, who provides additional vocals on one song; Aerosmith's Joe Perry, who plays guitar on various tracks; and Wyclef Jean, who produced one cut, Jagger's publicist said.
Also on the still-untitled record are Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas, who sang and co-wrote several songs, as well as Lenny Kravitz and Pete Townshend. Marti Frederiksen, who produced and co-wrote Aerosmith's Just Push Play, will also receive co-writing credit on the
Jagger disc (see "Mick Jagger Finds A Muse In Britney Spears").
Rapper/producer Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott won't be on the album, though she did meet with Jagger last month to discuss the project, the publicist said.
Next year, the Rolling Stones will celebrate their 40th anniversary. While both Jagger and drummer Charlie Watts have said they're interested in a world tour, no dates have been scheduled. The Rolling Stones also have no immediate plans to record a follow-up to 1997's Bridges to Babylon.
