Sorry to disagree Seitan but I can't quite believe that you have seen many white or black blues singers live in concert.

If Eric Burdon and Tom Waits were on the same concert bill, Burdon would blow Waits away.

eric and i appreciate this...

The Wolf was howlin' again, cool.

Yes, exactly. Probably one of the few authentic moments in the show. In contrast Jagger's "blues" voice sounds thin and sterile. These shows are a big disappointment. I am not surprised, but disappointed nonetheless. It is business as usual as it has been for decades. The band is like Linus. Just can't let go of the safety blanket, the easy comfort zone. The band is legendary, but not very good or creative. A missed opportunity. Playing Wild Horses without Taylor on stage, but in the house, is a crime. He opens up many opportunities, but why bother with a formula?

Sorry, but I think he has a horrible voice.

I've never gotten the appeal either. Is it because it's so bad that it's good? Is there an inside joke?


It's a mystery to me...Obviously I have no taste either..a Howlin' Wolf pastiche..blimmin' horrible!

Burdon is amazing, and his work with War is absolutely brilliant. I also love Winds of Change and the post 1966 Animals, too.

Although I think Little Red Rooster didnĀ“t leave enough "space" for Tom Waits - this must have been a VERY SPECIAL experience for all who have been to this show.

I'd be as unenthused to see Tom Waits as I would to see Dave Stewart. Spare me these particular Glimmer Twins' solo pals.

I think this is by far the best guest appearance on a Stones show since Bo Diddley in 1994 or Solomon Burke in 2002. No Expectations would also have sounded great with Waits. Hope they keep on bringing up real musicians and no more crappy celebrity rockers like Keith "Shopping Radio" Urban...Gary Clarke Jr. was a good choice, too.

Hanns, truly terrifies me to think what may lurk in your record collection.

Putting Waits in the same category as Bo Diddley and Solomon Burke is sacrilege.

Stones would be better off with no more extraneous guest stars...just my opinion.

Except Tom Jones you mean.

You mean that right? Except Tom Jones?

Now that you mention it, I can imagine Tom Jones and Keith Richards performing "Green Green Grass of Home." Eat your heart out, Gwen Stefani.

The idea of "Rip This Joint" is beinning to sound appealing...

Imagine the hip action with both Tom and Jagger up there!

Nothing wrong with Tom Jones. He's a great singer. He used to duet with rock and roll artists when he hosted his own show awhile back.

I think you're probably of a different mindset to me, but I do agree that to mention Solomon Burke and Bo Diddley in the same category as TW is sacrilege.

To me, TW is the finest American musician ever based on songwriting. Better than Dylan or anyone else. In terms of performance, I rate him even higher than that, though I know his voice isn't for everyone.

But, in terms of actual musical output, though I love both Bo and Burke, they are in no way comparable to Tom who has been putting out consistently fantastic and sometimes transcendant music since 1973.

I usually do not like guests. But, my opinion changed last night. Tom Waits was an awesome addition to the show.

Tom Waits is so original, he has always been special the few times I have seen him. I loved his theatrical performances during the late 70's and early 80's. A big fan.

I never said any of this. What a strange site this is...
