The Rolling Stones played their first concert without Charlie Watts - [UltimateClassicRock.com] .
Good ol' "Stanley" Jordan...
I am surprised at how different they sound with SJ. I had assumed he'd play the songs in the style of the records. I don't know what this is, sounds like a nervous guy imitating a drum machine. No dynamics, just kick, snare, kick, snare, kick, snare, fill.. He'll get better but Jordan is not a great drummer, I worked on sessions with him for years, TV star, nice fun guy but there's better guys for this..
Watched the short snippets: Hard to tell from the quality of sound and picture; but I think Jordan is a bit toned down compared to his Winos' sound. The snare is a little bit looser.
Which is a good thing. I don't like the drummer to be too dominant. Darryl is Darryl. Jagger's voice is what it was two years ago. Guitars sounding good.

They did manage to get his name right further down the article.
Rambler, Miss you and YCAGWYW again. 21 minutes of music in three songs that we have heard over and over again. Why not seven new three minute songs? Mother´s little helper, Lady Jane, Out of time, Sitting on a fence, If you can´t rock me, Hangfire or Sparks will fly? Anything is better and more interesting. I just don´t get it. It could be so much fun! But hey - 19th NB and Trouble - thumb´s up!!!
The Rolling Stones - Trouble's a Coming (Live Debut) - 2021
I listened to these recordings, it is clear that they are only fragments and that they are of poor stadium quality, recorded with a phone. But Charlie was very gentle with his drums, his playing was much smoother. I have an impression that maybe Steve needs some time to get into it, but he's not a beginner drummer either - it's just his style. The Stones will never sound like they did with Charlie again, but on the other hand these are rolling stones, changes - so natural to every human being.
The Stones have to keep rolling, although this stage for me as a huge fan is over with Charlie's death. Because The Rolling Stones will no longer be what they were. But still, I hope the boys will play for us as long as possible, even if 'Dead Flowers' will never again sound as mellow and subtle as it did before, with Charlie.
Another trivia question:
When was the last time they didn't play Honky Tonk Women OR Brown Sugar?
There are several shows were only one of them was played, but I guess you'd have to go back quite to bit to find a show where neither one was played.
EDIT: I think I found the answer...see here: [iorr.org]
But the next question, obviously, is: when was the SECOND to last time neither HTW or BS were played?
What I expected. MY Rolling Stones are gone with Charlie. Don't like this version of the former Rolling Stones. Too polished, too forced, Satisfaction the worst number, just boring. So sad...
As I said sometimes before, no Charlie, no Stones.
