LONDON - Queen Elizabeth II has informed the media that she has booked one of the greatest rock and roll bands off all time, The Rolling Stones to perform at her grandson William and her future granddaughter-in-law Kate's wedding reception.
According to Neville Twickenbuck, reporter with the London based Tickety Boo News, her Royal highness was able to convince the manager of the Rolling Stones to go down from his original fee of £500,000 [$800,000 U.S.] to £300,000 [$488,000 U.S.].
Queen Elizabeth was quite pleased. She gushed with pride as she disclosed the fact that she had received an email from lead singer Mick Jagger informing her that he was going to have the lads play an instrumental by Santana entitled, "Samba Pa Ti" so that he could have the honor and the pleasure of dancing with her.
The queen confessed that she was really looking forward to it as it had been close to 40 years since she had last danced with a rock and roller and that was back in 1971, when she danced the Argentine Tango with Eric Burdon of the Animals at Prince Philip's 50th birthday party.
Neville Twickenbuck asked Queen Elizabeth if she had any favorite Rolling Stones songs that she especially wanted to hear. She informed him that there were and she mentioned "19th Nervous Breakdown," "Honky Tonk Women," and "Beast Of Burden."
