Saw the Rolling Stones last night

The new drummer and the bass player really helped those guys out. Probably the best Stones concert I've ever seen. Jagger is in incredible shape. And funny as hell.

That's just crazy. When I saw them in 1989 I literally said out loud, "This is nuts. These guys are as old as my parents."

I've seen a few bits of video - I thought these guys were too old to play 20 years ago, but I have to admit that Mick looks great for his age and his singing is every bit as good (or bad depending on how you look at it) as it was 30 years ago.

Keith still looks like a walking corpse...

Now they're as old as your grandparents! smiley-laughing001

(Actually, they are still as old as your parents...)



It is what it is.

I've written this before here, but seeing the Sticky Fingers dvd from their 2015 show, I was blown away at how good they were. Watts, especially, btw. Even Keef played a bit instead of just mugging.

I saw them in Dallas three weeks before Altamont. I consider that their peak.

Me, too, and I thought the same thing!

Reminded me of this post from last Christmas (I think)-

Mick and Keith:







A throwback image to celebrate Autumn.

jest smiley



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

Saw them in Cali circa 2017. Richards came out mid-show and did some solo stuff while the others were taking a break.

He lights a cigarette and says to the crowd “How you doing? Yeah? Well, I’m glad to be here tonight”.

Then he takes a big drag from the cig and says, “Of course, I’m glad to be anywhere these days”.

Did they play Brown Sugar? I just read they retired it from their shows.

Mick and Keith:

Keith is taller than I thought.

That's too bad, it was one of my favorite Stone's songs, but I understand why they would.

I was just discussing with a friend, that I really don't pay any attention to lyrics except in rare occasions, and ignore them in Brown Sugar.

Same with Stray Cat Blues.

I just enjoy the music.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Stray Cat Blues

There'll be a feast if you just come upstairs
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime
I can see that you're fifteen years old
No I don't want your I.D.
And I can see that you're so far from home
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime
-
I bet your mama don't know that you scatch like that
I bet she don't know you can bite like that.
You say you got a friend, that she's wilder than you
Why don't you bring her upstairs
If she's so wild then she can join in too

I believe this is the first time Mick Taylor performed live with The Stones.

He was all of 20 years old.
