IT'S 12:30 THE CLUBS CLOSED, HE SAYS NOT TONIGHT THE ROLLING STONES JUST
PLAYED THE ROSEMONT HORIZON AND NOW THEY WANT TO HAVE A PARTY FOR THEIR ROAD
CREW, OK GUESS I HAVE TO GO TO WORK, I GET TO THE CLUB AND THERE ARE 200 GIRLS
LINING THE STREET TO GET IN, YEA BABY ME AS THE BARTENDER AND 200 HOT GIRLS
AND THE STONES, I CAN LIVE WITH THIS. SO SITTING AT THE BAR IS, MICK JAGGER,
JERRY HALL, RONNY WOODS AND KIETH RICHARDS. SO ITS A BIT CROWDED AS YOU CAN
IMAGINE AND MICK LOOKS AT ME AND SAYS YOU ARE IN THE SAFEST PLACE IN THE CLUB
3 FEET OF BAR BETWEEN YOU AND THE CROWD, HE JUMPS OVER THE BAR AN RONNY WOOD
FOLLOWS. WE TEND BAR FOR 3 HOURS, YUP MICK JAGGER RONNY WOODS AND DAN KOMPASS
BARTENDERS. AT 4 IN THE MORNING THEY GET UP ON STAGE TO PLAY A FEW TUNES, I
GRAB MY CAMERA AND FIRE OFF A FEW SHOTS. THE STONES ROAD MANAGER APPROACHES
THE BAR, HE SAYS NO PHOTOS THIS IS A PRIVATE EVENT, GIVE ME THE FILM, YIKES, I
REACH INTO MY CAMERA BAG AND QUICKLY ROLL UP A COUPLE OF EMPTY ROLLS AND GIVE
THE ROAD MANAGER 2 BLANK EMPTY ROLLS OF FILM KEEPING THE GOOD ROLLS FOR
MYSELF. SMART THINKING HEH, THESE PHOTOS HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED BUT THAT WAS 1981.

I was stunned when I found it. Amazed. I never heard of this after party
before. This story would have been very hard to believe if there weren't
photos. Mick and Ron tending bar? The Neville Brothers playing on stage at the
private after party and Mick, Keith and Ron getting up on stage to play for
the party!

I thought this thread would have run out of gas years ago but there's plenty of
stuff left in the bank!


++++++++++



97.1 The Drive (Raido Station)


In November of 1981 the Stones played three nights at the Rosemont
Horizon in support of their new album “Tattoo You.” November 25 was the final
of the three nights and that was that. Or so we thought. At 1 A.M. November
26, Bob Stroud was sound asleep having seen the Stones two of the three
nights, when he was awakened by his ringing telephone.

“Hello”

On the other end was a very calm Dave Benson, music director of 95 1/2 WMET The
Mighty MET.

“Get dressed. Don’t ask any questions. I’ll pick you up in 10 minutes.”

“What?”

>click<

Ten minutes later there was Benson. As Stroud entered the vehicle he worriedly
asked if everything was alright. Benson replied, “We’re going to the Park West to see the Stones.”

“WHAT?”

“They’re having a party to celebrate their last night in Chicago and the
Atlantic Records rep has our names at the door.”

“Holy s#%t!”

And there they were. Mick and Ronnie behind the bar serving drinks while Keith
stumbled about the place eyeing every lady of the night who had somehow
managed a way in. (heh heh) It was surreal. Dreamlike. Soon enough they all
bounded up on stage with the Neville Brothers who were opening for them on this
tour. They ad-libbed their way through a couple of jams and then descended
back into the crowd at the famed Park West. After a whiskey sour or two, Stroud
and Benson exited almost too stunned to recap what they’d just witnessed. It
was a school night and in a few hours it would be off to work at WMET to
relate to a shocked staff what they had seen the night before. It’s only Rock’
n Roll, but they liked it.

Is this the Dave Benson that also was at WXRT?

Well, honey, it's no rock 'n' roll show.

That may be Willie Green, the drummer for the Brothers. Cyril plays percussion in the band but the actual drumming is Willie in those years. That tom tom looks like his set up. But I do believe that is Aaron behind Jagger's shoulder.

What is confusing to me is the shot of the Neville Bros right here in this post. That can't be Charles Neville in the black shirt.

(L-R) Charles Neville, Cyril Neville, Art Neville, and Aaron Neville 1981[/quote]

Our quotes kind of got mixed up. Yes I saw the Neville Bros opening for the Stones in New Orleans in '81. Seen the Neville clan countless times.
My point with that b&w photo is that the names are wrong. I meant to write that it is not Cyril (My bad). It's Charles, Art and Aaron. But the guy in black shirt can't be Cyril. Maybe GasLightStreet knows...

A shot of Mick in his “bartender uniform” hung in the box office of Parkwest
for many years. Last I checked, though, it was no longer there.

I think there has been some others, in and around Chicago, besides just those two
appearances - but i’m not certain.
