Victor Coelho, CFA Musicologist, guitarist and specialist on the Rolling Stones, will lead the Rooster Band in a tribute to the country music of the Rolling Stones at the Foundation Room of the House of Blues. The event, billed as a “Stones-Apolooza,” was organized by Bernie Corbett, the voice of BU hockey, to celebrate Mick Jagger’s 70th birthday, but also to shine a light on three recent and forthcoming books on the Stones by Corbett, Bill Janowitz (of Buffalo Tom fame), and Coelho, whose Cambridge Companion to the Rolling Stones will be published next year. Coelho has appeared in documentaries about the Stones has also taught a popular course at BU on the group since 2006. The Rooster Band was formed by Coelho in 1998, and for ten years toured with Chicago blues legend Lou Pride, appearing with him at BU almost yearly until Pride’s death last year.
