Question: What is the name of the lead singer of the Hot Rocks?

CORNWALL, Ontario – On Friday, Sept. 23, Rolling Stones fans in Cornwall and SD&G will finally be able to get some Satisfaction.

The Hot Rocks will be coming to the Cornwall Civic Complex and will be playing all of the Stones’ greatest hits. They will be performing in Salons A,B and C and doors open at 7 p.m.

Both musically and even visually, the Hot Rocks are deadringers for the Rolling Stones.

Lead singer Robert Wotherspoon however, said that reaching the level that they are at was a long road.

“When I was a young guy, I played bass in a country band to put myself through college,” he said. “Someone in the band pointed out though that I looked like Mick Jagger and we learned a few of their songs and we sort of just drifted into the Rolling Stones.”

Wotherspoon really does look like Mick Jagger. So much so, that the last time the Rolling Stones played at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, crowds outside the arena mistook him for the genuine article.

The Hot Rocks have been performing since 2002 and have done shows across Canada and some places in the United States.

“We’ve played in Cornwall before,” said Wotherspoon. “We have heard from people who were at our last show there and they are excited for us to come back.”

Tickets are on sale now at the Civic Complex Box office, Melody Music and the Cornwall Square Lotto Kiosk.
