Hair, Arses And Immortality: The Rolling Stones Vs Twitter

WHILE KEITH RICHARDS’ definition of a hashtag no doubt differs wildly from most twitter users’, The Rolling Stones had a manful stab at engaging with the social network last night (May 18). Responding to fan questions posted using #AskTheStones to chime in with the impending re-release of Sticky Fingers, all four of the band – Richards, Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood – individually tackled questions.

“It’s one of the finest views in the country”

Sadly while there were plenty of actual LOLs, we didn't get to see Jagger’s command of text speak, instead the questions – which ranged from broken drumsticks to favourite rappers – were dealt with in a series of short video clips.

Below MOJO has picked its favourite responses from each of The Stones, so watch now as we learn:
