But there is so much more to Indonesia than this famous island. I choose Variety Cruises as my guide to exploring the East Indonesian Islands, an absolutely beautiful part of the world. Our sailing adventure aboard their yacht, M/S Panorama II, started off in Bali and then began island hopping to lesser known destinations such as Satona Island, Flores Island, Rinca Island and more. For a little over a week, we enjoyed adventuring to volcanos, crystal-clear lakes, colorful coral reefs, waterfalls, and even seeing a Komodo dragon or two!

We discover that his film career has rather been more hit and miss than his fame would suggest. Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones in full performance mode in 1969 Photo: PAAs The Rolling Stones pouting, preening front man, Mick Jagger has always had a 'look at me' persona and so it is unsurprising that he has always maintained an interest in movie-making which has run in parallel with his singing career.His first encounter with the film world came when French auteur Jean-luc Goddard followed the Stones for his bizarre fly-on-wall look at the recording of Sympathy For Devil which was juxtaposed against a variety of montage sequences showing civil unrest and political protest.A more coherent, but no less disturbing look at life … [Read more...] about Mick Jagger, a man who danced with the devil on the big screen
Michael Tarm Associated Press Published 12:15 AM EDT Jun 22, 2019 Chicago – Mick Jagger appeared healthy and energetic Friday night as the Rolling Stones launched their North American tour at Chicago’s Soldier Field. The 75-year-old frontman ran and skipped along a narrow stage that jutted out into the crowd.

The No Filter Tour was slated … [Read more...] about Jagger appears healthy as Rolling Stones rock Soldier Field

Even the gospel choir singer was a struggle — clearly they let the wrong one sing lead Sunday.Adam Levine and friends kicked off the performance as fireworks burst from a stage designed like the letter "M," which should have stood for "magic," because they needed some. Super Bowl ad winners and losers: Bud Light, Amazon among the crowd-pleasersIt started off on the right note, actually. "Harder to Breathe," the band's amazing debut rock song, was rousing as fire blasts shot from the sides of the stage. Levine grabbed his guitar for "This Love," while other bandmates also strummed away.It was all going well until a joke was uttered: "A true musical genius who needs no … [Read more...] about Review: Maroon 5’s halftime show was basic.
