BTX lives on for at least another week while Chris talks with prospective new owner-operators of the forum.
(I try to imagine Bjornulf being mere hours from nuking IORR forever, all the while not even knowing others were clamoring to take it over and carry it on. And, nope, can't imagine it at all. Be that as it may, my thanks to Chris for reconsidering.)
Oh, BTW, Barcelona tickets (incl. pit) were dropped the other day. Expect the same for other Europe shows as well.
Been to Barcelona only once in my life... one might say a while ago. Summer 1973, I was an 18 yo Naval ROTC midshipman, just completed my freshman year of college, and was on a training cruise on the USS Manitowoc, a tank landing ship. Barcelona was a port of call. Beautiful city... and crazy affordable then. It was still Franco's Spain. We met some Spanish girls -- Catalonian, actually, they stressed -- and I first learned of Spanish nightlife.
Around 4 AM I was tiring out. But a song roused me, ended my fatigue in and instant, and I was back out on the dance floor.
With HT Women still one of my two favorite Stones songs.
Many people's Stones favorites seem to be from the time period in their youth when they first discovered the Stones. That is definitely the case with me.
In mid-1973 Springsteen of course wasn't really a thing yet outside of North Jersey, a few NY clubs, and his second stomping ground, the only other place he could draw crowds, Richmond VA.
