The Rolling Stones and Snoop Dogg join QUEST in a Search for Music

QUEST airs: Indian Standard Times

Sat, April 29 at 1130am and 1930hrs

Sun, April 30 at 1130am

The Rolling Stones, BB King, Snoop Dogg and James Blunt are some of the world’s biggest musical stars who join Richard Quest in his search for rhythm in this month’s QUEST on CNN.

Legendary rock stars The Rolling Stones were recently granted permission to perform in China and Richard meets up with Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie as they embark on a global tour and prepare to play in Shanghai. Also in Shanghai, Richard discovers that China has its own rock god in the form of singer Cui Jian.

He then heads off to the MTV Asia Music Awards in Sydney where he meets critically acclaimed rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg and forms part of his entourage on the red carpet. He also talks to British chart sensation James Blunt about his phenomenal success and best-selling album.

Continuing on his quest for music, Richard travels to Los Angeles to meet up with Oscar-winning songwriter Diane Warren. Recognised as the pre-eminent songwriter of her generation, Warren has written songs for acts as diverse as Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Meatloaf and Cher, resulting in more than 90 top ten hits in the US and the UK alone. Warren gives him a lesson in song writing and shows him the ingredients needed to make a hit record.

Richard then takes his song to LA Reid, the head of Def Jam Records in Los Angeles.

Rapper Kanye West and soul diva Mariah Carey are just two of the star names on his books and he can make or break a music career by pressing ‘play’ or ‘eject’. He tells Richard what makes a successful musician and how to get a start in the often cut throat business.

The ‘King of Blues’ BB King talks to Richard as he prepares for his 10,000th live performance at the NEC Arena in Birmingham, England. 2006 has been a landmark year for the legendary 80 year old bluesman whose musical journey has taken him from sharecropping in Mississippi to the concert halls of the world and 14 Grammy Awards.

New York's famous Juilliard School of Music is also celebrating a birthday. Richard witnesses the school mark its 100th anniversary with a star-studded concert of alumni, including greats from the worlds of jazz and classical music, such as trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, violinist Itzhak Pearlman and America's top soprano Renee Fleming.
