Rolling Stones Lead NME Nomination List

The Rolling Stones have been nominated for four NME Music Awards in conjunction with their 50th anniversary tour. The boys have been given nods for Best Live Band, Best Book, Music Moment of the Year and Best Music Film.

"It's very nice to be nominated. When I first heard it was four things, I thought, 'Ooh, blimey! That's very nice!' And it's not a journalists-only thing, it's not a coterie of closely-knit people choosing. It's funny, because when we were rehearsing at Wembley Arena last year, it was where we used to do the NME Pollwinners. We remembered, it was the first time we ever played 'Jumping Jack Flash', at one of those Pollwinners concerts!" Mick Jagger told NME of the honor.

The 2013 NME Music Awards take place February 27 at London's Troxy, honoring "new bands, cult heroes and rock legends across 22 different categories voted for by music fans," according to the British magazine.
