Re: What was your biggest "Stones"-Disappointment?

Biggest dissapointment: the European leg of the Licks tour. I was really excited for the Stones to come to Europe. Judging from the boots, the US leg of the tours was great: Ronnie was back again, playing guitar instead of clowning around, the backup musicians role was diminished, and the song selection was great. Big big disapointment: in Europe Wood was drinking or doing other sorts of things again, Keith needed months to shed of the dust, I just thought it was plain horriible. The club shows were cool, with the Olympia even great due to the athmospehere and all, but I was truly ashamed when I saw them at the Kuip in Rotterdam...this had nothing to do with the band I love so deeply. On stage was a third rate cover band playing the bigest hits, while al the members had to much too drink. Shamefull.
