Springfield Rock City: Top 10 Rock Star Cameos on "The Simpsons"
We count down the top 10 rock-star cameo appearances from The Simpsons.
01. Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Brian Setzer, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty and Lenny Kravitz
"How I Spent My Strummer Vacation," Episode 293
In a 2002 episode called "How I Spent My Strummer Vacation,” Homer -- and several other Springfield regulars including Chief Wiggum, Otto and Apu -- attend a rock 'n' roll fantasy camp hosted by the heart and soul of The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (who plays the opening riff to "Start Me Up" on a Telecaster that's not plugged in).
When the one-week-long camp is over, Homer -- understandably -- doesn't want to leave. So Jagger offers him a chance to perform at a benefit gig, the Concert for Planet Hollywood.
Among the camp instructors are Brian Setzer, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty and Lenny Kravitz, who deliver some great lessons and one-liners and add to the already-impressive star power of this episode.
Classic: Keith Richards announcing that he has to put up the storm windows. "Winter's coming," he adds.
