Guilty as charged. Oink! Now pardon me, I must go float over a factory in London to help shoot a Pink Floyd album cover.

Something like "Even a blind pig/squirrel finds an acorn every now and then." I've heard it both ways - this is south Georgia, you know.

Or as Tom Petty says, "Even The Losers Get Lucky Sometimes". And I oughta know!

This is the blind leading the blind!

Hey Blind Dude! Welcome back! I've told that story from the Memphis show (the girl assuming you were blind) about 50 times to friends and family- a real laugher for sure!

I hear ya on the burn out thing, but I gotta be honest, I always come back to the music myself. Besides, folks on this board keep you sharp.

Sure hope the Keith affair hasn't scuttled a USA return by the Boys because I was definitely looking forward to another Stones road trip with you, Drake and company again. Keep my e-mail and we'll stay in touch! maybe a get together in the near future at Drake's studio is in order??

I'm sure drake is open to having another studio party if we bribe him with enough Woodford Reserve.

Who Cares? Dear Diary, blah blah blah. I'm coming, I'm going, I'm back again.

SHAME on you for losing your Stones conviction so easily. It takes Keith getting hurt for you realize this is the BEST DAMN ROCK N ROLL BAND AND MUSIC ON THE PLANET. Fair weathered fan.

Actually, I did, but I didn't want to contribute to the whole "multiple identities/who is really posting syndrome" ( looks at StonesTod smiling smiley )

I don't think genuine disappointment over the Stones current somewhat stodgy ways qualifies as "making an ass of one's self" ... which is too bad, because I thought making an ass of one's self was sort of the point of this board. I will simply have to try harder.

I never stopped being a fan of their music. Just questioned whether the current day version lacks integrity or not, then decided I don't really care that much.
