Yea - I wouldn't call it that either. They just take time off between tours. I think this time the feeling is it may be the end. I saw a recent photo of Keith the other day. The dude looked worse that usual.

Just binged the 4 episodes of My Life as a Rolling Stone that were made available on BBC iPlayer as the first went out on air. Each of an hour focusing on the 4 individuals. Mick - bit bland

I really wish they would've stopped when Charlie died. Steve Jordan is a good drummer but he is wrong for the Stones. He doesn't swing. & Keith is losing it on guitar. His guitar signal is so proc

I saw some recent video the other day. It was a train wreck. The drums do not work.

It kind of blows my mind to think on the day I was born The Stones had already been playing out as a band for about 5 months.

Can't believe they opened with Route 66. That would be almost as cool as seeing them do Shattered or Jumping Jack Flash. And for $20? Jesus.

"It’s Only Rock and Roll"

"Shattered"

"When The Whip Comes Down"

"Champagne and Reefer"

I looked through the catalog for that auction this morning. Old Ronnie must have not taken anything when he left her. The catalog is 191 pages long. Towards the end there was a 55 Strat up for sale. I would think he wishes he still had that.

The Palladia channel has been showing the Some Girls, live in Texas 78 show recently.

 

I taped it, but only watched the first few songs. What I saw was good. Ian McLagen on keyboards.

 

Does anyone know why Mick's shirt is blurred out? I could kind of make it out in some of the shots that escaped the blurring - but it just looks like an abstract art pattern - nothing offensive or copyrighted...

I think it was a swastika.....saw them in Anaheim that year.

 

Huh. I thought could make out a T, on a diagonal, in black. Blue and green splotches in the background. I guess the T could be a corner of a swastika?

 

Regardless, a good concert. It's making the rounds on the Palladia channel right now at odd hours. Search for it on your cable box...

I don't know about that A-Man...he's a 69 year old man who was a hard core cocaine and heroin addict for a good ten years. He smokes like a chimney and is probably an alcoholic. He probably looks better than could be expected.

Plus being a millionaire helps, too. He does a little worse for wear, but I guess I could care less how he looks, as long as his fingers and brain can still work together.

I would like the L and G show a lot more if the sound didn't drop out. I remember seeing shots of Bobby Keys, playing away, and wondering "why can't I hear any horns right now?"

 

Good point - the sound on the 78 release is a lot better.

Oh my God, I'm just a few minutes into it but the new Rolling Stones documentary "Crossfire Hurricane" on HBO is phenomenal. I had such a crush on Mick Jagger when I saw him in '72 in that slinky midnight blue jumpsuit with the rhinestones, and in the first few minutes of this documentary they show him naked getting into that suit! Be still my heart!
