Rolling Stones Week on Fallon

It's Stones week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, with the former SNL boy host joining in on the promotional frenzy building for the re-release of the expanded verson of the Stones' impossibly great Exile On Main Street next Tuesday. Last night, Green Day ripped it up in style on "Rip This Joint." (That's below) Keith Urban will play tonight, Sheryl Crow on Wednesday and Phish on Thursday. But never mind the marquee names. The real tantalizing guests are the musicians who will be sitting in with the Roots all week. It'll be blues man Taj Mahal on Tuesday, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready on Wednesday and none other than the Night Tripper himself, Dr, John, on Thursday. UPDATE: Below Green Day check out Urban's way-better-than-you-probably-expected take on "Tumblin' Dice," with Stones' keyboard player Chuck Leavell sitting in, and an added coda by the Aussie guitarist about the Nashville flood. I never heard that "fever in the bunkhouse" line clearly before.
