"WHAT? The most recent songs are from 1973!!?? God... IORR Band became a nostalgia act. Sad bu true. Common guys,you can better than this... And why did you play 4 songs from "Exile", 4 song from GHS and three fron "Let It Bleed"? The 65% of the list have been taken from three albums!!!?? WTF? What happened there? I guess on the night of May 20, instead of rehearsing, you were just listening to the particular albums, drinking beers. Don't be so lazy, folks. Dig deeper, please...".
well, with a "Mick Taylor" in the band you can't go much further than Brussels ... !
Haha, good one, laertisflash
I wanna thank SimonN for buying the entire band (10 people) beers - in absentia! A fantastic gesture from a great guy - next time, Si
Was great fun! Went down early when only a handful of folks were there including Sometorontogirl. She was nothing like I had imagined! Only better. Went upstairs for dinner which was a mistake as by the time I got back downstairs the place was jam packed and I didn't get to meet as many folks as I wanted to. But as Topi would say, it was "Stones heaven."
Got to spend a little time with Beast and ManofWealthandTaste which was great but would also like to have met others such as Mathjis and Silver Dagger among many others. Oh well.
Noticed a lot of the arrangements sounded like Brussels '73, including a number of the Taylor solos, which were nearly note for note on some of the numbers. Not a bad choice.
Would go again at a moment's notice. Will there b any more IORR gatherings this week? Today before or after the show? Friday? Any other day?
So, would like to post a couple of pics, will a facebook link work?
Absolutely magnificent. I'd go as far as saying that the IORR band are playing these classics as good if not better than the Stones nowadays.
OK - another of my favourites from last night at the Hope And ASnchor - here's Gimme Shelter.
