Rolling Stones? Aren't they a nostalgia act our grandparents claimed to see at Altamont?

They remembered seeing them wiredog? I have been known to dance into the grocery store after hearing "Beast Of Burden" and "Jumpin'Jack Flash" on the car radio.

Some of them seem to have gathered a bit of moss over the years.

If they remember seeing them then they weren't there

I saw them once. Great, and almost deafening, concert ever.
Almost as good as RBR and a LOT louder.

Didn't the Rolling Stones open for Afghanistan Banana Stand?

I heard they were renaming themselves The Strolling Bones.

Honky Tonk Women - one of my favorite songs EVER. Even though back in the Olden Days I was in the Beatles camp.

"Sympathy for the Devil" is the greatest R&R song ever, as of yet.

I know, it's only rock and roll, but I like it

Been to every concert within striking distance since I was 15. 'Beast of Burden' up there with my faves also, NC. Love it when Keith comes out and says "It's good to be here. Actually, it's good to be anywhere".

Will they reprint these blog comments on the Stones' 100th anniversary tour?

wow.

'Mick Jagger, 1962'....... like a complete unknown.....

*agrees w/ jsg*

actually, this is good, too

When's the 50 year Long John Baldry reunion and tour ?

Omni: Yes, but the moss they gathered was named Kate...


To quote Drew Carey: "What a thrill to see Mick still rocking out on stage, with the angel of death keeping time behind him."

Let's all send dead flowers.

I remember back in those days, when they were starting and part of the "British Invasion" after the Beatles, when the radio DJs called them "The Rolling Uglies".

But they sure had a lot of great songs.

Son and husband went to see them a few years ago and said they were incredible. JSG - son said "Sympathy for the Devil" was the best number in the show.

I think I might like "Miss You" the best.

I also like the fact that "Elmo" was n the band. Who knew?

Just checking. Is Mick dead yet?

they lost a lot of their soul when they lost brian jones. sadly, he was taking all the drugs keith wasnt on.

ligirl, good call, but "Stairway to Heaven" is higher on my list than "Kashmir". I know, I know, but I calls 'em as I sees 'em. "Free Bird" is in the top ten, too. And "All Right Now". OK, I'll stop.

Well, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered". But now we're grazing in different pastures, and I really should stop.

ligirl, well played. Shall we move forward?

Omni...not to be a downer on the subject of the Long John Baldry reunion, but we lost him a half-dozen years or so ago. Loved "Don't Try to Lay No Boogie-Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll" and a couple others. RIP, Long John.
