Bill Clinton to Join Rolling Stones

02/03/2003 at 11:00 AM EST

Those with good memories may recall Bill Clinton's saxophone solo during his first presidential election campaign in 1992 -- when he tooted his own horn on "The Arsenio Hall Show."

Now it turns out that the former commander in chief is not forgetting his musical past.

Clinton, 56, will join the Rolling Stones to help raise awareness about global warming when the aging British rockers appear at a free concert Thursday at Los Angeles's Staples Center, the Associated Press reports.

Of course, Clinton probably won't be performing with Mick and the boys, as the former president intends to deliver a speech about the importance of fighting global warming, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council, the nonprofit group staging the event.

NRDC spokesman Jon Coifman says the show was conceived as a means to throw "a worldwide spotlight on global warming and the opportunities that exist right now to start fixing the problem."

The Stones are currently completing the North American stretch of their Licks World Tour. The international leg will kick off later this month in Australia.
