Something is telling me that I will not follow this thread... I expect it to be filled with complaints within a few minutes...

A classic Keith comment! That's one of those that will go down in Keith history and be endlessly quoted.

actually, it's a bit of a double-edged sword.

Very pleased he's on the road to recovery- but his 'jokey' tone and lack of understanding, for the fans who have lost out on concerts and pre-booked flights/hotels, isn't very endearing,

Oh give me a break. He is the one with a hole in his skull. Why don't you show some understanding, instead of whining endlessly about your damn money?

a knucklehead, reactionary post, such as this doesn't really deserve a response- but if you're intent on abusing fans , who have missed out on shows, or lost out on hotel/flight reservations, at least show a modicum of intelligence, when doing so.

Agree with keefkid.
Don't agree with Raoul Duke: how many concerts did you have to re-schedule? None probably

No abuse was intended. I feel your pain, but I am sick and tired of hearing you complain. I was lucky enough I didn't have to reschedule any shows, but I was fully prepared for the eventuality (it's happened to me before, you know).

if you don't like to hear legitimate complaints from fans who
have been shafted, try your hand over at the RS.COM forums.

- you'll be pleased to hear any 'negativity' gets censored.

I have spewed my share of negativity - and I have no problem with that in general. But to expect someone who just had a brain operation and is back to work in 8 weeks to apologize because you lost a few hundred dollars seems beyond the pale. I don't think your complaints should be banned; I just think they are petty and self-centered, that's all. The bottom line is that if you needed the cash to feed your family, you should have used it for that purpose to begin with.

Hear, hear. I can't understand those type of complaints (and before anyone starts betting that I haven't taken a hit, I've lost out on concerts and pre-booked flights/hotels as well).

Please, guys! Now is not the time to be petty - it's time to be HAPPY! He's recovered - he didn't mean to get hurt... I think we should all be gratefull things turned out as good as this in the end. I hate to think of the alternative... Welcome back, Richards! Good to have the Chief of our Tribe back in business. We sure missed you, man.

You don't seem so much to care about money. It's the thing that makes visiting stones shows possible. think about it..

I've thought a lot about it - and it makes me even more happy that Keith is well again. So I lost a few hundred Euros - not even worth crying over. But I would probably have been in tears for weeks if he'd .. left us. So, today - I'll just open a nice bottle and play Exile and "Faraway Eyes" - "Thank you Jesus, thank you lord" - even though I'm not a religious person.

the Rolling Stones are what make Rolling Stones shows possible. think about it!
(yes i've lost money time effort and lots of sleep over all this -
and Keith is well and they've sorted out a schedule, and that's say-hallelujah time where i live.)
~*it's the Rolling Stones!*~

Our good man keith does not understand that he has become such a part of our lives, well at least mine, he is the only human being that I have ever looked up to, everything else is just fluff, he owes apologies to know one, I thank him for all the great music and the stunning visuals, so many dreams, so many dreams.


bust another bottle baby!

Perfectly & preciously put, valerie masters!
"he is the only human being that I have ever looked up to" -
exactly my sentiment.
Sorry all; many will hate me for this
but all I hear from the whining choir is
(pardon for using home-made French 'borgeoise patetique').
Some of you maybe should consider what you place your money in.
And... We still dont know much about what actually happened
over at Fiji.

It's absolutely stunning how many so called Stones fans whinge about lost money etc. Instead of showing compassion. Looking forward to see you Keith. ROCK ON!

Yeah ? Well spare a thought for ME then. This DISASTER of Keith's has completely bolloxed up my plans to guzzle that 10 litre jug of Sangria in Barcelona that YOU expressly PROMISED you'd mix up for me in Barcelona !! It's a mighty fine thang that Porto is still on, and thus you're not gonna be able to slither your way out of your obligation to knock up vast quanities of fine Capairinhas there on the boooooooooooooolevaaaaard !!!

Money ? Flights ? Hotels ? Yeah yeah yeah. I hear ya people, I have lost my share too - just like Adrian-L and Beast and no doubt countless others ? But hey, my own tragedy far exceeds anyone elses in my humble opinion. You have NO idea how good a Sangria Beast of Burden rustles up in a moment of inspiration !! I hold a certain Mr Richards K personally responsible, and in keeping with the finer traditions of the US of A ............... goddamit ah'm gonna SUE ! Hear me boy - ah'm gonna SUE !!!! I want thousands ........ no wait, I want millions .......... no, let me think .......... I want TENS of millions ........ I want ......... the f***ing LOT !!!

Yes, Kaskatanas! I'll be in Milan, Munich, Berlin, Amsterdam, Nice, all over the UK, Bergen and Horsens. So, Cheers - it's time for the Expensive Winos! And I ran 60 red lights in his honour... Thank you surgeons! And cheers again - everyone!
