NEW YORK (AP) - Members of the Rolling Stones are offering support to Mick Jagger following the death of his girlfriend L'Wren Scott.

Keith Richards said in a statement Wednesday that "no one saw this coming" and that Jagger has "always been my soul brother and we love him."

He adds: "We're thick as thieves and we're all feeling for the man."

The Stones canceled tour stops in Australia and New Zealand following the fashion designer and celebrity stylist's apparent suicide in New York City on Monday.

Charlie Watts says their "first thought is to support Mick at this awful time." Ronnie Wood echoed Watts' statement, adding "we intend to be back out on that stage as soon as we can."

Scott had been Jagger's companion since 2001.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
