Stones musician introductions? When did this tradition start?

I should know this but I don't, I guess because I don't listen to boots.

1) When did Jagger start introducing all the musicians routinely during the show?

2) Was there a time before this when it happened occassionally?

thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge.

Early 70s would be my guess.

I would say in 1970.
I don't remember any introduction before.
But he did in 1970, juste before "Bye Bye Johnny"
"And Keith Richards on guitar..."

[www.nzentgraf.de] here a band introduction is listed for most shows in 1972, some 1973 australian shows and only 2 european shows 1973.

In 1975 and 1976 a band introduction is listed on nearly every show!

For the 1969 and 1970 tours there is no band introduction listed and on live at leeds 1971 we can here one. so maybe that tour was the first time jagger does it?

And when did they actually start with this? Any expert around to name the exact place and date?

I still remember vididly the Mick with

"Keith, of course, is completely straight" from Still Life and Keith's double Dutch of

"Nix verstehn, why Ich liebe Dich, Mick Jagger" during VL 1995 in Schüttorf.

I know Mick introduced everyone in '72, as well as '75 - '76. On most things I've heard from '78 he usually said something like, "I think you know everybody up here. There's maybe a couple people you don't know.." He then proceeded to introduce Stu and Mac. From '81 on, he introduced all players on every tour.

Ronnie Wood's gay.

Keith, of course, is completely straight.

Well in the late 60's Mick used to introduce just Charlie and he would tell the audience the title of the next song. Funnily enough Charlie sometimes got it wrong - it's on one of those early Paris or Hawaii boots I think.

True nashville: in Honolulu in '66 they had Charlie introduce the next song, and he announced it would be 'Last Time,' and they had played that only two songs before! Brian Jones started laughing loudly and said it would be 'Lady Jane.'

Mick had Charlie introduce a song in Perth 65. Charlie left the drums to come to the front to do it. Nobody could understand what he said, to me it was just a mumble, lol.

thanks everybody for clearing this up...

so the related question would be, and people have already started answering it:
what are some of the best lines Jagger has gotten off during the intros?

from memory, i think mick has called charlie "mr. wang dang doodle" and the
"wembley whammer". is that correct?

plus there's "they love you ronnie. they really really love you."

and who could forget, about wyman, "just wants to take pictures of girls' legs"

by "best lines" do you mean what "nicknames" he's applied to his bandmates?

he's called Keith "the Honky-Tonk man";
in '75 Ronnie was "from the Faces pop group", which was pretty funny;
more recently he's been "the Rembrandt of rock", "the Rubens of rock" and probably other R-tists as well :E
at shows with Ernie Watts, i always enjoy "on the drums - no relation - Charlie Watts"
and let's not forget "the bedevilling Bill Wyman"

yes, mostly, but i suppose any other of his onstage wisecracks would be nice
to hear (again) too.

thanks for the ones you remembered.

Didn't Mick say at one point during the early stages of the last american
presidential campaign, with both Hill and Bill in the audience, something
like, "I want to welcome President Clinton tonite. And Bill."

yeah, some good ones there, almost all well known, and which need not be repeated.

but any ones from lesser known boots is what would be most interesting to me.
