Ronnie has created the cover artwork for this new blues compilation, curated by The Rolling Stones. Proceeds go to Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation!

As well as being the biggest band in the world, The Rolling Stones are also the biggest champions of the blues, so who better to curate a compilation in collaboration with BMG and Universal, of the music that inspired them throughout their career?
Confessinโ€™ The Blues collects together the greatest bluesmen ever and provides a perfect education to the genre. The tracklisting on the various formats has been chosen by The Rolling Stones, in collaboration with BMG and Universal and will be released on BMG on 9 November.
The Rolling Stones have long been supporters of the Blues from before the start of their career right through to their latest album, Blue & Lonesome which featured their interpretations of the classics, many of which appear in their original versions here on Confessinโ€™ The Blues. Mick Jagger was an early fan of the Blues: โ€œThe first Muddy Waters album that was really popular was Muddy Waters at Newport, which was the first album I ever boughtโ€. Keith Richards said, โ€œIf you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.โ€ As such big supporters of the genre, the band and BMG have decided that 10% of BMGโ€™s net receipts* from the sale of this album (with a minimum of ยฃ0.65 (2CD) / ยฃ1.25 (2LP) / ยฃ3.00 (Bookpack) UK pounds sterling) will be donated to Willie Dixonโ€™s Blues Heaven Foundation (Registered as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organisation in the United States.) Jacqueline Dixon, President/CEO of The Blues Foundation, said: โ€˜We are extremely honoured, grateful and humbled that Willie Dixonโ€™s Blues Heaven Foundation has been included in such an astonishing project. It means so much that my fatherโ€™s dream of creating an organisation that promotes, protects and preserves the Blues for future generations is being recognised and supported by artists that have achieved so much.โ€™
