Great reviews of the first O2 show.  Wyman played Its Only RnR and Honky Tonk, while Taylor joined them for Midnight Rambler...Jeff Beck and Mary J Blige were also guests:

And Scott, I agree...Stones never phone in a show.

I have tinnitus from my countless , well dozen+ or so, shows over the years.  Some were not so good, but you never felt like "they phoned it in", but maybe just didn't hit a groove.  Others are among the best performances, of any type, I have ever seen.  They can be astounding.  FIFTY years now!  The Stones have provided the song track to my life as I was sixteen or so when Satisfaction was released.

My grandpa used to work security at the cotton bowl. I tried often to get into shows using that connection. He (probably rightly) feared the trouble I would get into, and then him by extension, so he wouldn't let me go to those "long hair" events. He may have been the guy who hassled you.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds! Blimey.
 
And as for ZedZedTop, well I "grew up" with Eliminator, mid teens when that came out, so with all that beer and riffs and beer and stuff, well it was kind of inevitable. Learnt to love the back catalogue.
 
Oh yeah, the Stones. Saw them at Wembley on the Urban Jungle tour. We bagged some seats up in the stands, but then took advantage of the philistines by heading down onto the pitch whilst the support were playing - I'm pretty sure it was Doves, but very much ready to be wrong. Anyhoo, were close enough to feel the heat at the start of Sympathy For The Devil.

The Rolling Stones - "Charlie is my Darling - Ireland 1965"



This disc just came out last week but I recorded it from a showing that was on the Audience channel. A must for Stones fans it is more of a documentary than a concert video. Shot in 1965 at two concerts in Ireland (at the time Satisfaction was #1) it is the original group in all its young glory. Taken from film shot for a documentary that never really materialized it is very well restored and constructed. The concert footage is very good for the time but this was when it was more important just to see the band, not necessarily listen to them. Hundreds of screaming girls in the background and just a basic sound system. Scenes of young fans storming the stage and the guys actually having to fight them off themselves, no Hells Angels security then.



But the movie is still very good. Just seeing Keith Richards as a youngster, with muscle under his skin, is worth it. And of course Brian Jones is there. And all the interviews with the band members, at the beginning of their long journey into fame, are great to see. And seeing them do Beatles songs in their dressing rooms was neat.



I am not a die hard Stones fan, probably have 5-6 of their albums from over the years, but really enjoyed this and will pick up on disc. If you are not a fan of the Stones you may not be interested but it is definitely an important period of rock history.

I have never been to a Stones concert. In 1981 a scalper rolled into the gas station I was working at and offered tickets at half price. The show had already started. I was a starving college student (besides being at work until 11) so I had to turn him down.

The very next day I was in an autocross at the stadium parking lot. The course workers arrived at first light to lay out the track, and the stadium crew was still dealing with the trash from the concert. There was no way they were going to get rid of it all by race time so they bulldozed it into piles and they laid the course out around them.

It was a long time ago, but I remember some of these heaps were taller than the course workers so they had to position themselves where the scorers could see them waving flags. It was an interesting event.

94 at the rose bowl.  I had a decent seat halfway to the stage down on the floor.  Between the chilli peppers set and the stones going on, I wandered back towards the back stage area, and as I was making my way back to my seat, the lights went down...and i happened to be right on the stage's edge, so I made a quick left down the front row, to the center and eased myself into the third row.  Stood there for the first half or so, before they did Memory Motel and everyone sat down, leaving me standing out, with no seat.  Top 10 concert in my book.

Adding insult to injury, they'll probably play at least a few songs from the new album. I heard one song from it, it was dreadful.

WNEW...I haven't thought about that station in a while - especially since I no longer live in NY.  Did you get to sit with Scott Muni or Vin Scelsa?

When Keith Richards calls Spinner on a rainy Wednesday evening, he's in a jovial mood. The Rolling Stones are about to release a deluxe edition of their 1978 classic album 'Some Girls' on Nov. 21 and Keef recently revealed that he'll be jamming with bandmates Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts in London. The big question is still whether or not Mick Jagger will join them for a tour next year in honor of their 50th anniversary — and if Richards has his way, the band will be out there, possibly with more than just the current lineup. In this candid interview, the rock legend speaks — in his trademark warm, raspy way — about the band's future, his memories of recording 'Some Girls,' his well-publicized heroin addiction, his 1977 arrest in Toronto for drug trafficking, the inspiration for 'Beast of Burden' and his award-winning memoir, 'Life.'

Reading reviews, there's lots of attention for the sex and drugs in Keith Richards' autobiography, but the rock 'n' roll is left heavily underexposed.

Enter Nellcôte, France in Google Earth, then zoom in to see where the Stones recorded their Exile On Main Street double-LP. Click the photo link in the swimming pool to see a side profile of the house, located smack (no pun intended) dab on the Riviera.
