But in fact their equipment was hooked up and they did perform live, (probably one of the smallest venues they ever played at) and it was video taped (I have a copy of that). Mick seemed quite drunk (IMHO). One song they did perform live was Jimmy Reed's "Baby, You Don't Have To Go". This was in July 1981

Which other songs did they perform on that location? And did they have an audience witnessing that?

Compromise- take a few quick hits, pinch, save and frame that J!

Fantastic :-). Thanks so much sharing/ making me smile.

Yeah Videojames - if you tell us you got that on video why not post it as a real Bootleg series from the vault - you could be king for a day or more...

S,M,B & G./ video... Will never happen, Mick was so out of it.. Let's just say it looks more like a very late night rough rehearsal. They would never approve to release it.

From the Vault I had much better stuff to offer from 1978 and they had no interest. I even had the 7:30 SNL dress rehearsal show which was so much better then the 11:30 PM live airing (Jagger's voice was still OK then) and they had 0 interest.
I even offered it ( with the whole band skit "not in the 11:30 show") to SNL for one of their "retro specials", they showed a little interest, but never went for it in the end??... Not sure why?? Could be they needed the Stones OK.

Don't ask them to use it - make it available to the fans!

Another memory:

Ronnie was at the back of the bus (the bathroom). The crowd went crazy! Jo came in, blocking the window with her back so people couldn't see Ronnie taking care of his business. Afterwards, he good naturedly opened the window... someone remarked that he couldn't even take a leak in private... Ronnie replied "Ahh.. who needs to piss in private."

Years later, I spoke to my friend about that famous day. He told me that Arthur Elgort (the photographer he was working for) was not a Stones fan. Inside the bar Mick was getting pissy about something, and Arthur said to Mick that he was "no Duke"! (as in Ellington.)
(I wonder if Mick said "Well, you're no Stiglitz!" )

As to what they played in the bar he said that he couldn't remember shit after a few tokes on the leopard themed hash joint. He had to remember to get all the equipment back home.

I've never seen any photos by AE from that day. Would love to

Check out the picture of the brunette with the blue shirt and red shorts and the dangling white pocketbook outside the bar standing on the left...You see Mick and Keith inside.

She is wearing Nike sneakers in 1981?

Is she the first trend setter for Nike?

Back then Adidas was king!

When did Nike start?

I was there too ... well, not really.

Great story, schillid. I was going to the city a lot then - restaurants, bootleg shopping, etc. After we saw the video we made a point to go there, so I was probably a few months late.

I recall we also made a point to go to the corner of W. 8th St. & 6th Avenue (i.e. in Dance lyrics) - which was very close to our favorite bootleg store, Revolver Records. I believe that store is still there (it was as of 3 or 4 years ago).
