It's the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary this year, and to celebrate all October an Auckland bar is running a Stones night each Wednesday.
This week celebrity DJ New Zealand First MP Winston Peters joined Peter Urlich at The Whiskey Bar to select their favourite Stones tracks.
“A lot of songs do have a political bent if you look at them very carefully,” Mr Peters says. “There's quite a lot of study particularly in the US about how they put what they feel about the political situation into songs.”
An eerie blue light lit up the DJ and the MP as Mr Peters told Urlich what to play.
“You've got to read the room but at the same time you have to be your own DJ, that's the walk of the politician,” Urlich says. “They have to keep their integrity but still stay in power, you know what I’m talking about.”
Mr Peters then dedicated “You can’t always get what you want” to John Key and the National Party.
The man who at times has been to stable Government what Mick Jagger is to monogamy is impressed by the longevity of the glimmer twins.
“I admire the fact they stuck together,” Mr Peters says. “I admire that fact they stuck together whatever their egos were to be still together 50 years later filling places all around the world, enjoying themselves, making a lot of money.”
