May 3, 1994: The Stones arrive by presidential yacht (the “Honey Fitz”) to Pier 60 in New York City for their press conference announcing their 1994-1995 Voodoo Lounge World Tour, also announcing bass player Darryl Jones and Chuck Leavell will join them onstage.
Mick: “We’ve done it by land and we’ve done it by train… I hate that thing where you say it’s the last tour and beg for sympathy, (like) if you don’t come, you never see them again. I’m not going to say it’s the last tour. I think it’s a mistake to say that.”
Darryl Jones, about getting the job: “I tried not to get too attached to the outcome. After we did the record, Mick said he thought I did a good job, and Keith said he’d like to have me hang around again. But I didn’t really get the word, officially, on the tour until a couple of months ago.”
