Mick Jagger was recently behind the microphone, but instead of singing, he was narrating -- a short video for London's Royal Albert Hallin celebration of the iconic venue's 150th anniversary.
In a slightly dramatic voice, Jagger, who sayshe was "delighted" to narrate it, recites an excerpt of the 1964 W.H. Auden poem For Friends Only.
"Empty and silent most of the year, this room awaits from you what you alone as visitor can bring. Distance and duties divide us, but absence will not seem an evil if it makes our re-meeting a real occasion. Come when you can. Your room will be ready."
Interspersed throughout the 90-second clip are images of some of the legends who have performed there, including Mick and The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Freddie Mercury, Jethro Tull, The Who, George Michael, Diana Ross and Eric Clapton, who has played there more than any other act -- over 200 times. He has three shows scheduled there in May.
