Cheryl Crow “vomited all day” before her first performance with The Rolling Stones.
On November 25, 1994, Sir Mick Jagger and his colleagues invited the hitmaker “Soak Up The Sun” for a cover of “Live With Me” at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami, and Cheryl was so “afraid” to go on stage with her idols that she threw the day before performance.
Before she was taken under the wing of the hitmakers “Under My Thumb”, Cheryl – whose first big concert was as a backing singer during Michael Jackson’s tour “Bad” between 1987 and 1989 – felt “alien” in Los. Angeles.
Speaking at the Howard Stern Show, she said: “I was just an outsider and it was Stones who snatched me from [that] and said, “Hey, welcome to our stage.” It was a scene I always wanted to be in. I always felt like I was born too late. ”
Recalling her first performance with an iconic band, she said: “I was sick all day. I was so scared.
“Just before I came out, [their saxophonist] Bobby Keys … handed me a bottle of tequila and said, “Here’s a little courage,” and kind of pulled me out. “
The 60-year-old Cheryl was fascinated by frontman Mick, 78, and found it a surreal experience.
She recalled: “I remember exactly what I thought when I was about six inches from Mick [Jagger’s] face.
“Oh, this is the guy who has a zipper … I unzipped this plate [‘Sticky Fingers’]».
The couple has been in a relationship for many years, and she recently reunited with the rock veteran on a new cover of “Live With Me” from the 1969 album “Let It Bleed”.
Singer “First Cut Is The Deepest” has recruited Mick to play the harp on the Stones track for the album of soundtracks to the new documentary “Sheryl” about her life and career, which came out today (06.05.22).
She said: “I recently wrote him a message asking if he would play the harp [a cover of the Rolling Stones song] “Live with me.” When I texted him, I just thought I couldn’t even believe I had his phone number ”.
