If they will tour again they will sound awfully. There probably will not be a new tour. The memories remain, the recordings remain. That is quite a lot.

In a little while..., I'd guess around 9pm EDT (one more hour) they should all be ready on YT.

I explained already that I had technical problems just as Keith was starting Little Red Rooster. That video can be seen elsewhere on YT anyway. But it's just as well for me that my battery crapped out when it did. Trying to be be discreet, covering the illuminated viewfinder while trying to hold the camera very still and shoot the video while trying to listen to and enjoy the music.. it's difficult to do. You can't move or dance or clap or sing.
And when Keith came back out to play, I was still going with the video and that's when the battery died. Forcing me to put the camera away and just listen and enjoy. For certain, it's much easier to stand or sit and listen to the music without shooting video.

Lots of great blues. Great to hear all those great players. I had never been to the Apollo Theater before last night.

LOL my grand entrance.

Do you see any other full songs posted? 99% of people can't hold a camera that long. When you use zoom on a compact camera you get more shaking. People moving and bumping into you. Security looking to stop you. Trying not to spoil other people's view.

Seitan, you are fairly spot on. You and I both know that if he was starting out today, Sumlin wouldn't stand a chance. The industry is flailing, trying to figure out where their audience is. FM radio speaks worlds about the state of the music 'business'.

Can anyone comment on whether the gig was filmed professionally on any level?

I spoke with the management and because of 'legal' issues the show will only be documented by still pictures. There were no pro cameras set up to film. My full length videos of Keith may well be the only ones out there. Let's hope they are not the last!

The Stones ought to do a blues memorial tour!

That's exactly what I was thinking! Complete with stools, no jumping around, just a tribute to the blues artists who inspired the Stones.

Great idea.

Absolutely. Slow things down, way down. They can do blues covers, (and their own new blues songs) for ten more years! It's the future. Might as well get used to it. I love the idea.

I like it well enough. Good for Keith.

But there is some delusional stuff going around... If anyone is ready, it's Jagger.. IF he is.

Keith is done.

Its why he shit the bed with LIFE.....

That's all fine and dandy except for they are still planning on working next summer. As the Rolling Stones, that is.

man my impression based on the pictures: Keith looks too thin! Compared with the video meeting Peter Wolf - I think this was from last year- he looks like he's lost weight.. he does not look good. Forget about the music chops, he looks too thin.

I see a lot of judgements based on one-off performances that were not typical of what the Stones do. Mick is being judged for being out of breath after the first song at the White House. Maybe he was hyped up and nervous. He seemed to pull it back together and do great on the other numbers. He still appears to have a lot of energy and sounded good to me. Keith is being judged for a non-typical tribute gig? He doesn't look well? Consider his age. Maybe if he and Mick were performing what they're used to doing with the Stones, they might give a totally different impression. Time will tell. If the Stones do actually do something I'm sure all of them will work hard at getting in shape and they still may surprise a lot of people. Keith has morphed into one of the old bluesmen he always admired. His playing at his age will naturally not show the agressive panache of Brussells or Hampton but he'll always be cool. People still go to see Chuck Berry at 85 and from videos I've seen, he REALLY can't play anymore. I think Keith will have the sense to lay back and not attempt to play things his fingers can't do anymore but I'm sure what he does play will still have that heart and soul that makes him so endearing to his fans.

Absolutely. You learn to pace yourself as you get older. They don't need to be bouncing all over anymore even if they can. I would like to see them do an all country album in their latter years. They always had the potential to be a great country band.

This is a case where I don't get all the criticism. This is a blues, people! His singing was soulful and his slide guitar playing was understated and very elegant. I thought it was a moving performance from a man who still knows what the blues means.

I understand that, but the question remains, Is the kind of playing he did last night the only kind of playing he can still do?

I was waiting for someone to ask this question. Good observation, tatters.

There you have it. For their legacy, it probably will be better not to tour.

and you can bet the farm the stones themselves have long-since figured that out...

So why are they going to tour in 2012? Limited I hope, but a tour nonetheless.

I bet my bottom dollar Jagger knows about all this very constructive criticism out there! Seriously, forget all this shit about KR being a bluesman, because he isn't one! He is just taking on the role because there is no other role he can play! How ignorant is it not to go out in a blaze of glory! They are now faking it to make it ($)! I can see any old grey haired geezer stand in front of a microphone, with a guitar slung over his shoulder, without playing it, down at the local (pub)!

They will tour again, that is a fact. To what level remains to be seen, however, I can guarantee you Mick will not allow them to sound awful. Whatever needs to be done will be done. Keith will be part of the show.

The thinner the better. He was showing too much water retention in his face recently. He looks great.

Silly talk, absolutely silly talk. Let's wait until they have a few concerts under their belt before we bury them. Mick will never allow the Stones to be embarrassed. He will do what he has to do to make it work.

So if anyone wants to identify the main players and song names in each of the clips, then I can retitle the clip appropriately.

one strange footnote is that one of the most famous musicians in the world got
back on a public stage for the first time in years, in new york city, and so far on
google there are still zero news stories about it anywhere in the world.

i didnt expect huge press coverage, but zero is certainly a surprise. to me.

i was about to suggest, that since no outlet of earth was reporting on keith's
appearance. that we simply pretend it didn't happen...

but now rolling stones mag has wrecked that strategy by reporting the following:

"Close to midnight last night at New York's Apollo Theater, Eric Clapton had
just finished a thunderous take on classic blues number "Forty Four" when Keith
Richards ambled onstage with no introduction. Wearing a dark blazer, long green
scarf, fedora and a huge grin, he embraced Clapton and stood center stage to
massive applause, delivering a smoky take on Wolf’s "Going Down Slow," a
chronicle of a frail man who has savored life’s greatest pleasures. "Man, I've
had things that kings and queens will never have," Richards growled. "In fact,
they don't even know about them, let alone get ’em. And good times? Mmmm...." He
hovered around Clapton and then stood sidestage by the piano while Clapton
delivered a throaty verse and then weaved clean-toned solos with young Austin
guitarist Gary Clark Jr. There were many highlights at Howlin for Hubert – a
tribute to guitarist Hubert Sumlin, who played in Howlin’ Wolf’s band for
decades and passed away on December 4th due to heart failure – but that was the
peak. It was Richards’ first major musical appearance since the Rolling Stones
last toured five years ago, and he showed little rust.
After "Going Down
Slow," he sat down and played metallic 12-string slide while singing "Little
Red Rooster," and then strapped on a Gibson electric guitar to sing and trade
licks with Clapton on "Spoonful." "It’s good to be back," Richards said, peering
up to the balcony before breaking into a cackle. "Goddamn, it’s good to be back.""

So, there you have it, in black and white from the bible of rock and roll.
Almost no rust at all. Shiny like a sedan de ville.
