Roughly how much time and money do ya' think ya' spent on The Stones over the years..thousands,,ten's of thousands?
Well for a start my loss of income alone would have to be right up there in the thousands considering I take a week off work or more.. for each concert.Then theres another half day off work to buy a ticket..by the time ya' spend a few hours standing in a queue..half the mornings over already.What I lose in wages is nothing compared to what i've spend on Tickets..DVD's..CD's..Memorabilia..Airfares..Hotels..Booze..etc.. there's another couple of grands worth..it soon adds up.. "And ya' know something The Stones are worth every cent..no worries".All i've gotta' do now is get cashed up for the next Tour.Actually im just about to shoot into town and buy another Stones CD..cheers..smoking smiley

I couldn't begin to calculate that but I do remember winning £18 on a one-armed bandit (US = slot machine) in 1974 and going straight from the cafe across the road to Virgin records (Where the staff were happily smoking grass behind the counter) and buying 8 Stones albums and having change for sausage, egg, beans & chips,a packet of fags and the busfare home....those were the days...................

less than 50 Euros during the last decade - I just bought the new Exile and remastered versions of Bagger's Banquet, Let it Bleed and 12x5 (all special offers)
(for comparison: In the same time I've spent some ten thousand Euros on Bob Dylan CDs, concerts, and traveling costs to get to concerts)

Who could calculate this? Maybe if you wrote down all the prices from the start. Anyhow, I've spent a fortune on them. Probably could of bought a house, but I'm happier this way. "To each is own" is the old saying.

Being a "Taylorite", the bulk of the money I have spent on Rolling Stones merchandise has been on bootleg LPs & vintage magazines, ticket stubs,photos, etc. The amount I have spent on official Stones merchandise is FAR less.

I figure I've bought Mick at least 4 chairs and an umbrella table by the infinity pool for one of his island homes.
