So glad I don't have that regret. Saw them in London 1993. It was awesome.
Sorry.

Had a chance to buy a Zemaitis guitar made for Ronnie at a reasonable price and bought a 54 Les Paul instead which I later sold so I'm twice the idiot.

I wish I had taken time off work in either 1982, 1990 or 1995 and followed the Stones thru Europe.
Just didn't think of it at the time.

Born in 1969.

I had to wait until 1990 to see Stones.

That they don't play Satisfaction live in a way that resembles more the original studio version.

None. Lucky enough to see every tour from 1969 onwards

No need to apologize.

I had a bit of a problem thinking of any regrets regarding the Stones as I've seen multiple club, theater, arena, and stadium shows throughout the years.
Truth be told, I wouldn't trade in any Stones club/theater shows for a Keith solo show, so I'm pretty well satisfied.

Have you seen the Stones in a club and/or theater?
If so, great! If not, sorry...cool smiley

Missed New Orleans Super Dome (or whatever dome it's called) Van Halen, Doobie Brothers, and the Boys, 28 Jun 1978 if I'm correct.

Not hanging around outside the Fillmore in SF to hear the Stones rehearse for the No Security Tour. We were coming out of a movie and I left with my friends. I should have said "Screw you guys, I'm not going home".

Not seeing them on the 72 tour. I saw several shows at MSG in New York that year but was young and not huge Stones fans back then so passed up the chance to get tickets.

July 13 - 1978. Sorry you missed it - a great great show! Many people on this board were there. People who slag off the 78 tour did not see this one.

Yup and comments were concerts were parties. I guess Van Halen was first then the Doobies. Real regret.

I didn't get to see any of the 70's shows. Saw them in the '60's but missed the great tours of the '70's.

Having to much to drink before an Earls Court gig in 1976.... My first Stones concert.

Thouroughly enjoyed myself apparently.... But cant remember much about it!confused smiley

Not only that.... It is terrifying to think that it was almost 40 years ago!eye popping smiley

What a drag it is gettin' old

When I had the opportunity to meet Keith, all my vinyl was in storage. So I had to desperately scurry over to Tower that same morning, and all they had was cheap CDs of "It's Only Rock N' Roll" and "Sticky Fingers" on CD, which I bought for him to sign.

My good friend actually ran into Keith on the street in New York, in the Village, in the 1980s...and by complete and utter coincidence, she happened to have a copy of "Metamorphosis" on LP in her bicycle messenger bag, at that very moment....she felt kind of sheepish, that it was THAT record, she even apologized to him as she pulled it out the bag; he kind of looked at it for a moment in his hand, cracked a smile and laughed, but gracefully signed it for her anyway....she just happened to have it in her bag that day....truly a funny moment.

If you went back a few weeks later for the rescheduled show you would of see a great show. Its in my top five of my 56 shows.

Being really blasted at my fist show in 78. I only remember bits and pieces. That was their last great tour in my mind. They were still really raggety then.

My other regret is continuing to go see them expecting a return to their pre-Steel Wheels live sound. I see them every time they come round hoping they will play heavier but it just seems to get less edgier. Quite bland really when compared to even early 90s.

Didn't buy the promotional album on EBAY a few years ago, for $300.

...actually, I should say it was not running away from home in 1981 to see the Stones in Seattle, when my parents didn't let me go.

This doesn't quite count as a "regret" because it was completely impossible in countless ways, but it would have been great to have experienced what is related in the Keith biography by Barbra Charone regarding the Some Girls sessions:

"Simon Kirke came initially to Paris for a two-day shopping spree. He eventually stayed for a week, came to the studio nightly and did no shopping whatsoever...'I can't believe the music,' he says after the first night. `I'd given up on the Stones, but this is so good it scares me.'" p. 175

I would've liked to have witnessed what he did.
