Mick & Keith- WHY?
Posted by: wellalright ()
Date: March 31, 2015 19:44

“We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer! We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs.” – Mick Jagger

“We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America! I can’t wait to get back on the stage!” – Keith Richards

THIS is what it has come to? Two old PR puppets. God this is depressing.

That's all they've ever been really. Except now they don't even try to disguise it.

i hope this thread doesnt get zapped- i understand that this can be a heavy fan-boy/fan-girl enterprise - but i think a little critical discussion of this scheme is worth the time.

alright, then proceed with the discussion.

all you've done is whine about how they've announced the tour. get critical already and say something that we can agree or disagree with.

make it worth the time.

Even this grumpy old man can agree with that! It's gotta have some substance you whiners...

well, does this tour, replete with this trumped up SF release, feel like anything more than a shameless cash grab? look, i love them, have seen them many many times- but this particular run, sans mick taylor, (in a sticky fingers year???) for me feels extra hollow.

Oh..pardon me.. I was looking for the fan site..

Carry on.

If they perform Sticky Fingers in its entirety without addressing the fact that they're not inviting Mick Taylor its a freaking joke. They're trying to get over on us because all the fans in general will presume MT will be there in an expanded role. It's ludicrous for them to perform Sticky Fingers without him and its deceptive advertising if they don't specifically address the MT issue...

Depressing?

Don't go, don't buy it. It's simple.

Myself, along with thousands and thousands of others are thrilled today...and can't wait to buy Sticky Fingers....again.

The problem isn't Mick and Keith..have a look in the mirror.

PS- Mick Taylor is not in the band. It was a thrill and a pleasure to see him last few times but the show must go on.

those mick and keith quotes today were just so sad and pathetic- that's the best they can muster up?

fan = someone who agrees with you on everything.

bitcher and whiner = someone who disagrees with you on anything.

I get it. Carry on.

they didn't actually announce that they would perform Sticky Fingers today.

Not a lot to write home about I agree but what were you expecting them to say? Keith said he likes to be on the road and play on stage, which musician doesn't ?

To answer your (first) question: yes.
The cash starts flowing in a lot more when you do two or three shows a city. A tour like this with one show in one city brings them two or three times less money compared to other tours they did before. And when you see the cities you really can't use the words shameless cash grab because you don't just take the money and run like you do in SF, LA, NY etc.

Who promised you this is a Sticky Fingers year?

And get over the MT thing: he quit 40 years ago and was invited back for three years by a bunch of people who didn't have to do that in the first place and/but who were more than happy to do so. And they were more than happy with MT than MT was with the RS if you ask me...

I really couldn't care less if Mick Taylor will be on stage with them playing the potential ''Sticky Fingers Set'' or not.
Taylors soloing on Can't You Hear Me Knocking and Sway in 2013 was not overwhelming so to speak and I think Ronnie can do a just as good job with those songs if not better...

Taylor was happy enough to be "back" to tell Sam Cutler about it, which may have not sounded good to some ears actually, the "back" part...Besides, based on what's been posted by reputable sources here, Taylor didn't turn them down, he got a call from Jagger's lawyer in February informing him he would not be invited.

i just never thought the stones would seem this uncool--this lame. those quotes are just laughable- the coolest band in the world - and this is what it comes to.

Well again what did you expect, these guys are 70+, how many "cool" people do you know who are that age? It's easy to think Mick is still 40 when you see him on stage but he's not.

I'm pretty non-plussed about the whole situation, no Taylor, no outtakes, etc...but I lighten up when I think of all the people who'll have a great time at the upcoming shows like I (and hundreds of thousands of others) had at the 2014 shows.
