Something between the glimmer twins was festering throughout the the American leg of the 1981 tour and with the firing of Jane Rose, Stones long time executive secretary, it boiled over into a mental hop scotch chess match between the glimmer twins
"Keith had immediately hired her to look after his affairs as his manager.” Pissing Mick off
“This made Mick crazy and the more authority Keith gave Jane, the angrier Mick became.” (what is it with these two guys,always bickering)
"Sept 1981 deep in tour rehersal at Longview Farm in autunmal maple –red Massachuetts the RS tried to get it to gether one more time Jagger carred a calculator and appoinment book he tell Woody’s ol lady, Jo to keep her “brats” out of his face Keith turned a basment room (again w/the basement) into his pool room where he and Woody drank, jammed and complained about “Brenda” one of their many name for prissy, diffident Jagger. " excerpt from'Old gods almost dead." Stephen Davis
Mick had insisted the musicans sign a “NO DOPE AT THE GIGS” clause in their tour contracts and Keith who hated freebase had personally guareenteed that RW wouldn’t use base on the tour. Another clause provided that Mick stay completely off the stage while Keith did his single number of the set. Mick had made a lot of unilateral decisions about the tour that annoyed keith He didn’t like the cheap looking Japanese pop art stage sets he didn’t care about the film and cable tv rights Jagger was sellin, and didn’t think the Stones were in any shape to do a concert film. He was irked that mick rfused tohire Bobby Keys for the tour and instead had singned up Ernie Watts Ketih despised Mick’s industrial “ cherry picker,” that would project Mick over the heads of the kids in the stadium shows like a ludicrous pop preacher. This was such a sore point that
Mick tried to leverage keith with it , offering to lose the cherry picker if Keith promised there would be no hard drugs on the tour” ( right)

“Good morning South Philly pretzel munchers cheese steak much?” The top 40 radio station blurring out “ ALL STONES ALL DAY “ bam boom crack morning drive time “Satisfaction. ” Album oriented rock was sinking it’s frequency with cuts from “ Tattoo You “ the college station was spinning the long, long, long version of “Slave.”
That morning my little rock n’ roller cooked me up some eggs Then she made some tea, kissed me on the cheek And I turned on her TV But my ear was riveted to the announcement coming from the radio It was loud and clear “300 Rolling Stones' tickets will go on sale this morning10 am at the JFK box office!” I shouted “Start Me Up!” Getting a ticket would be a monumental feat difficult especially since it was only the second show on the tour but I was determined.and hopped the A train
The talk was ‘bout tours, as Bill Taylor, a writer for the Philadelphia Journal, would note in a piece appearing the morning of the second show “ When the Stones come out from under their rock and hit the touring trail- a phenomenon that happens regular asclockwork every three years- what they do is something which transcends mere music,” I climb out exit JFK box office what a dump! All bleacher seating, worst restrooms ever.
Mick Jagger held a press conference announcing the tour a few weeks earlier it’s all coming back now the Rolling Stones concert
3 years ago Mick was dodging foot wear. I wonder what we’re gonna heave over our shoulders and onto the stage this year?

From a distance I scoped out the crowd not to big I should be able to get a ticket that’s if nobody butts in line. No sir not on my watch. Still it was pretty early and the sun was shining on my coffee . a concert official came over and slept a wrist ban on me with the number 81. if I could get my hands and a ticket everything would be turning to gold for me. Ever since the end of the 78’ tour I’ve tried to keep up with the news about the Stones searching for news articles , radio interviews , bootlegs, word of mouth, and newsletters etc.
The line started to thicken I was ensconce with Stones freaks the people in front of me are talking about Keith’s Manhattan neighbor that “ they are disturbed by the loud rock music he plays all day.” “ He’s in the loud business” someone says. The groupie behind me was rocking his Sony Compact All-Metal Chassis cassette with a fresh bootleg tape of the Pathe Marconi sessions last October , I heard a snippet they said the song was called “Time To Go” I said that sounds like Bobby Keys but I was immediately corrected one person told me it was” Mel Collins’ saxophone lick .”
The Stones double-entendred, three-word porn movie title ” Under my Thumb”is used as an excuse for the women to carry signs in protest, many angry feminists are holding the side walk at bay shouting at the Stones. I know better than to hang out in a line with a bunch of drunken reprobates wearing wrist bans waiting to get their hands on a few Stones’ tickets I needed to pee and I was waiting on a friend to stand in line for me. But he was held up trying to get a wrist ban for the weekly government cheese.
I was talking to Mr.Stones about the song “Hang Fire” I corrected him and he thought I called him a “Lazy Bitch” I said “So sorry I meant to say is that , during those out takes you can hear MJ improvising and He throws in the lyric “ I had-it with you, hang-fire,” Possibly referring to Keef. I told Mr.Stones I thought that would make a good title for a song someday. Mr. Stones came back with it saying “Lazy Bitch," The track portrays the depression state of a country racked by unemployment and poverty” he went on to say “ It has a cynical ring since the people described seem content to remain faltering at the bottom of the social pile- the working title "Lazy Bitch" confirms these suspicions “The country dear friends is one where I used to come from “ sings Jagger. Mr. Stones continued “The single release was only made in the states, the insinuation perhaps too strong for an upfront single release on home territory.” From Martin Elliot’s “RS’s complete Recording Sessions 1963-1989.”

I finally got my ticket now I was like everybody else Break out the I Ching and drop that pickles down the hole- just then the gates opened I was walking and chafing into the vast JFK stadium looking for my seat thinking "the inaudible and noiseless foot of Time." – Shakespeare page 39. I detected the el supreme-o and the top of the stair where all the poor folks are sitting
One person was yelling “More sugar” I didn’t have enough money to buy a t-shirt so instead I went looking for liquor. The sign said restrooms this way Beer thata-way. I told the people waiting in front of me “ Long after we have gone as the flash of our beginnings Has not yet traveled it's light years of distance we will disappear in the black space from which we came from Destroyed as we began in a burst of gas and fire!" I dashed to the field nestled between center right Keith’s side the stage I was in hog heaven, it was gonna be a long wait. Most of the people were stuck in traffic jammed subway door lines

This the Skylord in a long black limousine with the Traffic report, if you’re in the vicinity of the Rolling Stones concert tonight and you are in your car wondering why you’re not moving blame it on the Stones. The Stones are in town and everybody slowing down to take a look.
Traffic congested in every direction everybody trying to get in the parking lot, oddly enough the parking lot is still empty plenty of parking once you get here. Traffic news twitter FLASH : NYPD APB people dress in plastic bags directing traffic near or around the concert.

Little red roster lost his way on the streets of love traffic backed up The North bound intersection Eastbound 101 A collision on south bond 405 oil tanker truck leaking, spun out and now a fresh layer of oil glossing over the divider lane north bound motorist breaking out the lawn chair sucking up the mess ejoying the oilgasm
People starting to worry about their great grandchildren

We got millions unemployed Some kids can't write Some kids can't read Some kids are hungry Some over eat this weekend. traffic like a train wreck in middle of traffic jam motorist slowing down westbound 210 inland empire added congestion due to the huge event, the Stones.
Mick Jagger once wrote : You can follow the road to the mountain Or the track leading down to the beach You can go where your life go left or go right It's you in the driver's seat.” that’s not necessarily true right now on east bound 91 pass the bridges to Babylon motorist are leaving their vehicles throwing away the keys and punting east bound 91 backed up for miles, nothing but brakes lights flashes as far as the eye can see.
Down the road apiece 395 south bound and the 210 interchange looks like giant bottle neck the riders in the heat about to explode with cars Just the sight would make a gown man cry. Hwy. Patrol APB for a flaming runaway Toyota, stay clear of that
Downtown, Broad St. bumper to bumper frenzy, the surface streets looks like stuff arteries there’s a steel guitar engagement with all their faded junkies too people in cars trying to buy Stones tickets on the corner of West 8th Street and 6th Avenue . Down fifty-third street they're spitting on face value tickets Yeah, some called me garbage When I was sleeping on the street I never roll And I never cheat I'm filling a need I'm plugging a hole.

The Goodyear blimp dodging the news helicopters high above the stadium down below the anticipation building up the mood was anxious people hooting and howling yelling and whistling inching closer to the stage ready to get rocked hard and fast by the Stones.
everybody was wearing a beautiful buzz what a beautiful buzz indeed. Frisbees colliding with giant beach balls, stranger stopping strangers just to shake their hands, girls flashing guys, guys drooling all over each other. I was ready for shuffling madness the crush ready for the push towards the giant pink stage.
Someone hand me my refeer nothing happen but then all of a sudden everything look bigger the stage was enormous
I started getting hungry and paranoid and I scrapped the sky I scoped out the stage all is quiet except for the small roadie Keith’s side fussing around tinkering with some knobs.
Soon after that it become a struggle I couldn’t deny myself it would only tighten up I surge closer to the stage the huge draped curtain in all its splendor, punctuated the stage pagentry The mass began to bellow as one you can hear the piano chords warming up then Duke Ellington’s classic song “ Take the ‘A Train” blurs through out the speakers, now you are caught in the web ( so soon?) The energy level is ripe The Rolling Stones will be so close you can almost touch them and with that
Bill Graham‘s voice cracks the mic. GOOD EVENING PHILIDELPHIA! THANK YOU FOR WAITING WOULD YOU PLEASE!! WELCOME THE ROLLING STONES!!!!!!

Excerpts from “The Rolling Stones The Last Tour” by Peter Goddard
“Critics have flown in from London to L.A. and less than an hour into the first show JFK all the workers and groupies Hangers-on record people have come to realize the same thing: It isn’t working> The rolling stones are bombing in exactly the same city they bombed in at the start of their last tour in 1978
Chord changes are being missed, words forgotten and the’s no trust, no energy Overhead a tiny plane circles
pulling a banner with a feminist message complaing a bout the words “under my thumb,” some knew it might happen this way . They almost expected it. Immediately before the Stones started out, friends , close to band whispered that this might well be “the last time.”

Hi akgameboy, yes i do request. I don't remember googling this article some time back had it in a folder
" I"t is December 13, 1981, Sun Devil Stadium. We have some reasonably good seats, have sat through Joe Ely and then George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers. The Rolling Stones are on the stage. The song is "Let Me Go". Mick Jagger climbs down a ladder from the stage and heads into the crowd with a wireless microphone.
He is suddenly running down the aisle that we (Bonnie Braun, Susan and myself) are about 6 people over from. In the first shot here you see him standing in the aisle (pink shirt). In the next scene
Baby Please! letmego!
you can see me in the extreme lower left corner (Levi jacket, shades). You can't really see Susan, you can see Bonnie (hooded sweatshirt). Jagger i s still visible in the aisle.
In the third shot, you can make out the three of us well, but Jagger is no longer visible, although you can tell where he is (as before just behind the guy in the windbreaker and the sunglasses). To find us, start at the upper left hand corner and head diagonally towards the center, we are about halfway to the center, first me, then Susan, then Bonnie. This footage is from the film Let's Spend the Night Together, which I have been trying to get a DVD copy of for years, which Mike bought me for Fathers' Day.
The Rolling Stones – Sun Devil Stadium It was a concert for the ages, the Stones were coming to Phoenix, and little did we know that the concert would become a movie. We spent the night in line, having tickets that were general admission, we wanted to be as close to the stage as possible. When the gates opened, we were at the entrance directly behind the stage. They had the field fenced from the stage front to the other end of the field, approximately 100 yards. So the day started with a 200 yard dash, there and back, rather than run in and go directly to the front. Our positioning was not exactly what we camped out for, but pretty close. Slightly off center and about six or eight rows back. It was fairly comfortable for a couple hours, but when the first band took the stage, it got crowded, and stayed that way the rest of the night. The lineup was The Joe Ely Band, (who?), to be followed by George Thorogood and the Destroyers, with the Stones as the finale. Having been in line since noon the day before, our bodies were tired, but soon it would all be a memory. "

The Pop Life; THE ROLLING STONES: ONCE ADOLESCENT, THEY'VE GROWN UP By ROBERT PALMER Published: August 26, 1981 Illustrations: photo of Mick Jagger ''TATTOO YOU,'' the new album by the Rolling Stones, is in local record stores today, a week ahead of schedule. Despite extensive security precautions taken by Rolling Stones Records, a copy of the album (probably a tape) made its way to WNMR, a radio station in Philadelphia, and was broadcast at the beginning of last week. Another Philadelphia station, WYST, taped the album off the air and began broadcasting its tape. Within a few days, tapes of the original tape were being broadcast in Buffalo and Chicago, and a copy had reached a disk jockey at WNEW in New York, who called Atlantic Records, the album's distributor. At this point, Rolling Stones Records decided to rush-release the album. The album's premature release came as the Rolling Stones were beginning rehearsals for a coming tour, their first since 1978. Last Friday, members of the group and of the concert promoter Bill Graham's organization were inspecting the Roseland ballroom, which has been mentioned as a possible site for one of the Rolling Stones' Manhattan appearances. ''Look for the Stones to play a number of places in the New York area,'' said a source close to the band.
(hey kid stop throwing peanuts at the band) Every Rolling Stones tour since the beginning of the 1970's has prompted the same questions from fans and the press. Are the Stones still capable of playing first-rate rock-and-roll and of playing together as a band? Will this be their last tour? Will any Stones quit the band to pursue solo careers or to work outside music? Keith Richards, the group's lead guitarist and co-writer, with Mick Jagger, of their songs, put these questions in perspective last summer.'I'll still be playing rock-and-roll when I'm in a wheelchair,'' he said. ''As long as people want to hear it.'' And the bassist Bill Wyman, who was rumored to be leaving the group, has announced that he is still a Stone and will be on the coming tour. On the subject of age, the 37-year-old Mr. Jagger may not be able to summon the athletic energy he commanded 10 or 15 years ago, but that doesn't necessarily means the Rolling Stones shows will be less rewarding musically. In fact, if the new ''Tattoo You' ' album is any indication,
the Rolling Stones are playing with more commitment and fire than they have shown in some time. Last Great Album
End of part one.

“First I Look at the Purse” by the J. Geils Band comes up on the iPod. I recently added a bunch of J. Geils tunes. They were a quintessential New England band when I was growing up. Singer Peter Wolf started out as a dj at Boston’s WBCN. But I never saw the band play in New England. I never much cared for them when I was growing up, in fact. The only time I saw J. Geils was when they opened for the Rolling Stones in Los Angeles back in the fall of 1981.
I remember it like it was yesterday (here I rest my chin on my hand and stare thoughtfully into the distance as the scene dissolves to reveal . . .) Los Angeles, 1981. The Rolling Stones have announced their tour for the Tattoo You album. They will play at the Los Angeles Coliseum, which is almost literally a stone’s roll from my apartment building.
A bunch of us get tickets. They are general admission, which means an early morning if we want to get good seats. So the crack of dawn on show day finds us sitting in a long line at the Coliseum entrance. I’ve brought a book— Stephen King’s Misery, if I recall correctly—to help me while away the hours. It’s going to be a beautiful day.
