According to Tracks Auction, the song is has never been released by the Rolling Stones nor is it documented anywhere and is not known to exist other than on this tape. The track is described as "an upbeat pop song that sounds very much like a tune that could have come out of Merseyside c. 1963."
Jeremy Nielsen, a friend of the sound engineer at the studio, saved the tape from being destroyed back in the day and stored it in a box in his attic for more than 50 years before listening to it contents.
The 17-minute recording includes nine tracks from the band's first studio sessions in March 1963 and then in 1964, which came before they released their self-titled debut album.
Among the unreleased songs on the reel-to-reel tape are the lost track, two previously unheard versions of the ballad "As Tears Go By", and "Congratulations", a version of which later surfaced on the 1973 compilation "No Stone Unturned."
Nielsen is putting the tapes up for auction by Tracks Auction on April 3, but he would be just as happy to see the Stones buy the masters themselves. "I couldn't believe it when I heard the tape," says Tracks Auction owner Paul Ward. "I thought there was no way that there could be four unreleased Stones tracks sitting there. In an ideal world, Jeremy would like the Stones to buy them and release them." Read morehere.
The fan, Mark Guglielmo, says he wished the singer good luck on the six upcoming reunion shows next month, to which Rose reportedly replied: "Thanks, man, but we're going to do a whole tour."
Guglielmo noted that Rose looked healthy, adding, "I don't want to speculate or spread rumors, but it really looked like he's been working out a lot. His arms looked muscular."
The partially-reunited Guns N' Roses will perform two shows each in Las Vegas, Mexico City and at Coachella next month. To date, the group has only officially announced the involvement of Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, but an autographed drumhead donated by the group to be auctioned off at a benefit concert last week for the people of Flint, Michigan affected by a water contamination crisis added three more names to the lineup - guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and drummer Frank Ferrer. See the fan's photo and posthere.
The victim was hit in the face after he asked a man who had been deliberately bumping into people on the dancefloor to leave him alone.

Much love to Paul and Simon, and love to all our fans for supporting us over the years Thanks."

The 37-year-old impressed so much that one judge pushed the 'golden buzzer,' meaning Ramos bypasses the next round of auditions and goes directly through to the live shows.
AC/DC, meanwhile, are still searching for a singer to replace Brian Johnson on upcoming live shows. Johnson was ordered to stand down as he risks going deaf if he continues to perform with the band. Watch the performancehere.
And he's delighted that the stand-in chosen by Adler happens to be available to play all the shows he'll be needed for. Adler appeared as guest musician on Megadeth's latest album Dystopia, and he's committed to playing as many shows as he can with the thrash icons.
But despite having been a fan of Mustaine all his life, he has no plans to leave Randy Blythe and co. Mustaine tells WSOU: "We're really happy that the guys in Lamb Of God aren't protesting him playing with us. We don't want to cause any problems in that camp. It's a big deal - everybody's talking about the record. Everybody's talking about the four of us. We don't want to cause problems."
He continues: "It would be great if Chris could do every single date, but there's going to be some he can't. For those, we've got a drummer that Chris picked. Tony Laureano played with Nile and Dimmu Borgir. He's a great guy.
"He's got a couple of solo things that he's doing, but fortunately for us, it works out that he's available for the shows that Chris is out with Lamb Of God." Read morehere.
Contributing artist, TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, says of The Grateful Dead: "They're one of the great, 'do everything' bands, take from whatever you want and warp it into something new. I'm sure that some of the space rock and psyche DNA of the band has seeped into what we do."
A one-off Day of the Dead live performance featuring several of the album's contributing artists, including Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry and Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen, will also take place at Wisconsin's Eaux Claires Festival from August 12-13. See the track and artist listinghere.
"There's just something about that song," Robertson told us last month. "I remember being in the studio and I was singing it and trying to keep back from crying the whole time, thinking about my grandpa and just being away from my kid and wife and stuff and I got to the last chorus and just had to stop.
"I've never had anything like that happen to me before. But it was definitely happening, and it was real. I can't really describe it, but it got me." Check out the videohere.
And Frehley says he'll never rule out the possibility of teaming up with Stanley and Gene Simmons in Kiss. He tells One On One With Mitch Lafon: "We haven't discussed that at this point, but I'm not ruling it out. I always leave the door open. I know there have been rumors and stuff, but there hasn't been any talk of us getting back together.
"Right now it's just the excitement of this record, and I'm very excited about Fire And Water. There's a good chance that we're gonna release that as a single.
"Paul's really happy with the way it turned out, I'm very happy, the record company's very happy, so we're just moving forward in a positive way. And whatever happens in the future, it happens, or if it doesn't, it doesn't." Check out the full interviewhere.
Waits has already been heard performing The Soul Of A Man, the opening track to the record which also features Lucinda Williams, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, the Blind Boys Of Alamaba and others.

As a result, "Dust" also features the lineup of guitarist/vocalist Mark Tremonti, guitarist Eric Friedman, bassist Wolfgang Van Halen and drummer Garrett Whitlock.
"Some of my favorite songs are on the second record," says Tremonti. "The title track, 'Dust', I think, has the best chorus of the whole recording process. 'Dust' has my favorite solo. The opening track, 'My Last Mistake', is one of my favorite songs. It's got the big ballad of the two records. It's definitely not the 'b-sides' of 'Cauterize.'" Check out the new songhere.
Avatar frontman Johannes Eckstrom says: "What you have is the beginning of the story and all the light and darkness of things to come. We meet our protagonist Owl as she lies dying, looking back on the night that would be her last. Regret is about regret.
"Staring into the cold eyes of Death, she wishes to change everything, to go back, to live again. This leads us to House Of Eternal Hunt. It is how things used to be, how they were supposed to be.
"That is how the tale starts, with a predator ruling the sky on the night that would turn out to be her last. With this concept and these tracks, we want to give you the past, present and, more than anything else, the future of metal as we see it." Read more and stream the songshere.
Vocalist Cody Carson says: "If there's one thing Set It Off knows it's struggle. We know nothing worth having in this life comes easy and there have been many instances and many people in our lives lately that try their best to bring us down.
"This is our message to those people that force their way into our lives to try and break us - you won't. Bring it on, we're Set It Off and we never back down from a fight. This is only the beginning, so turn up our new song Uncontainable, feel the energy, and take over the world."
Set It Off have wrapped up the recording of the follow-up to 2014 effort Duality. It was produced by Brandon Paddock, Erik Ron and Mike Green.

"We can't wait to show you all of our new songs, we've never had a team so excited about anything in our lives. So be patient and prepare yourself for the best record Set It Off has put together to date." Watch the new videohere.

Estate co-administrators Cristie Healey and Roger Costa said: "Heal My Soul is a project that we have wanted to tackle for years. It contains material recorded during one of the most creative periods in Jeff's rock career.

Williams told FreqsTV's Into The Machine: "I feel that a lot of genres have expectations. When we started, I feel like we felt we had to do certain things to fit in.
"I definitely remember conversations about not being happy with the screamed guttural vocals, but saying to each other, 'We have to do this'. That was probably the first indication of where the band was going. Even on the first album, we could tell we were going to move away as quick as possible."
He continues: "As a young band, it allowed us to be a part of something that acted as a springboard. It immediately propelled us into an international market. It was a good thing to do that.
"If we had forged our own path at that point I don't feel we would have got the international acclaim that we did immediately." The band is the latest to appear on the FreqsTV web series Into The Machine. Watch the episodehere.
The Emperor frontman previously said of the album: "My focus for this album was to write within more traditional song structures and still give each song a strong individual identity, be that through a re-occurring melody, a chorus, sound design or the good, old guitar riff.
"I also wanted to explore this on the production side, blending organic rock sounds with more modern expressions." Check out the stream of the new trackhere.

The first single from the new record is called "Texas is Forever," it slated to be released on March 24th. "I wanted every song to have real meaning, and thought that in spending time in different places, I'd find new inspirations," says frontman Vic Fuentes, "that's exactly what happened."
It's the band's first new music since 2012's Collide with the Sky. Check out the full track listing for Misadventures and listen to a clip of the "Texas Is Forever" singlehere.
According to Jeremy McKinnon, ADTR's frontman, the song came together organically. "We took some time to get together and write with no real expectations, says the singer. The band took a trek up to Fort Collins, CO where they'd collaborate with Descendants' Bill Stevenson and recording engineer Jason Livermore. "That song just kind of came out of nowhere one day--and we were all really pumped on it. We went to New York and had Andy Wallace mix it. If people aren't familiar with who he is, he's one of the best mixers of all time if not the best mixer of all time."
Fans immediately theorized that a new album must be imminent, especially since the band would be heading out on tour with Parkway Drive and State Champs this May. Naturally, they must be touring new music, right? Wrong.
"Paranoia," says Jeremy McKinnon, is just a one-off. Read more

A raffle is being hosted on a Virgin Money Giving page with the money being used to set up a fund in memory of little Charlie Mortimer, who died just a few days after being born. He had undiagnosed Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MCADD), a rare genetic metabolic condition.
A statement on the Virgin Money page reads: "Charlie was born on August 11, 2009. He was the Mortimer family's third beautiful son - their life was perfect, complete.
"Charlie went home to meet his big brothers on August 12, and they spent the most precious 24 hours of their lives together. The 'perfection', however, came to a very sudden and unexpected end when Charlie stopped breathing at home on Thursday, August 13." Read morehere.
"As kids we knew nothing, later on we learned nothing, and soon after achieved nothing," says Roth in the episode entitled Victory Field. "My accountant says soon I'll have nothing. All this would've been impossible without football."
"Football has everything to do with who I am today and I would not be here without that," Roth told the crowd in Holmdel, NJ last August. "I played Pop Warner football religiously from the minute I was able to qualify until - like Menudo - I was too big and they kicked me out. I was no good, my enthusiasm far outweighed my abilities, and at least half of what I know I learned from Coach Kelly, Coach Brown, and my Dad was one of the coaches, too.
"I grew up with a poster of Bob Dylan on the wall, there's a picture of Jimi Hendrix on the wall, and there was a picture of Bart Starr, Vince Lombardi and Frank Gifford right next to them." Watch the episodehere.
