A cardboard guitar cut-out from Keith Richards. Several velvet jackets. A lithograph of Eric Clapton. According to a Reuters story , these were some of the items sold at auction Saturday by Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood and his ex-wife, Jo, following last year's dissolution of their 23-year marriage. The memorabilia sell-off took place at Julien's Auctions' Beverly Hills gallery.  The auction reportedly raised tens of thousands of dollars from such items as a 1955 Fender Stratocaster guitar that Wood often played in concert.

The Rolling Stones rolled into Staples Center on Monday night for what Mick Jagger described as the band's last show in Southern California -- “for a while, anyway.” Following an earlier Staples gig, two at Anaheim's Honda Center and a warm-up throwdown at the Echoplex, Monday's 2½-hour concert concluded the group's extended stay in the region Jagger said he and his mates had been visiting since 1965. They're off next to the East Coast, where they'll continue their so-called 50 & Counting tour before returning home to England for a headlining appearance at the massive Glastonbury Festival.

Question: Should the greatest rock 'n' roll band in history be history? Or, to put it more bluntly, are the Rolling Stones too old to be rocking and rolling? By now you've read about, heard about or seen photos and video (or heck, maybe you were even there) of the Stones' performance Saturday night at the Echoplex in Echo Park. A lot of Hollywood types and celebs were there: Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis, Gwen Stefani, Owen Wilson -- you get the idea. Regular folks too, ones lucky enough to snag tickets in a quickie lottery.

Eight p.m. is apparently too early for celebrities. It is the much ballyhooed VIP opening for the paintings of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, and outside Hamilton-Selway Fine Art on Melrose a flock of paparazzi is going hungry. They've been here three hours now, pushing and shoving in the chill night air, vying hard for a coveted view of a lamentably unpopulated red carpet.

The Rolling Stones may soon be rolling Stateside. In the wake of last year's well received 50th-anniversary shows in London, Brooklyn and New Jersey, the legendary English band is planning a North American tour, according to Rolling Stone magazine, which quoted a "concert business source. " The trek, reportedly set to launch May 2, is to include 18 shows in West Coast cities including L.A. and Seattle. "But I think they're going to do some back East as well," said another source.

The new Rolling Stones single is out, and it's a rocker. Whew. It feels really good to write that. In the barometer-setting "Beatles versus Stones" argument, I come down heavily on the side of the Stones, but I haven't been able to confidently say that about a new Stones single in at least two decades. (Listen below.) Called "Doom and Gloom," the new Stones track is one of two from a forthcoming multi-disc greatest hits package called "GRRR!," and constitutes the first new music from the Stones since 2005's "A Bigger Bang.

Making solo albums is nothing new for Ronnie Wood. But, after 24 years of high-profile guitar-playing gigs, the past 18 of them with the Rolling Stones, the English rocker feels he at last has the makings of a serious solo career. The recently released "Slide on This" is Wood's fifth solo album, but his first since 1981. Wood says it is the first album he regards as a "contender" to establish him as a creative and commercial force apart from the Stones.

The Rolling Stones of yore were more likely to be caught dead than to be caught celebrating their 50th anniversary. Or at least that's what the original bad boys of rock 'n' roll - the band practically invented pop-star misbehavior - would have you believe. Yet half a century after the group played its first concert in 1962, the Stones are commemorating that unlikely milestone with a blitz of fresh activity that includes yet another greatest-hits set, a movie and a handful of live shows.

One day about 40 years ago, the Rolling Stones found themselves ogling the Beatles' tour van, regally parked outside Royal Albert Hall. "It was covered in lipstick," recalls drummer Charlie Watts, "and we all thought, 'Blimey, that's what our van should be like!' " Sure enough, in a few short months, the Stones' van would be covered with an equally envy-provoking amount of lipstick.
