Rüdiger, there is a loop running during Sympathy, that is no secret. And you could still hear it when Charlie had stopped playing.

Hi Keefed, I feel relieved after your post! Glad to read some positive feedback from the first two gigs, also because I'm aware you know what you're talking about.... I should be there for the Paris gig, and I hope I'll turn out to be the gig from which he'll start to get "better and better".

"Occasional crappy sound, hitting boner notes, mistakes, gaffs, laffs and Keef's antics are a grand part of the Stones charm, seperates them from the pack and what makes the Stones The Stones."

That is so utterly wrong. They did not, and never would have, become the Greatest R&R band in the World by having any of the above attributes. It certainly would have separated them from the pack though.

I think many here are Blinded by Love..

Even in his heaviest Heroin period Keith didn't @#$%& things up, even on an irregualr basis. He may not have played with such fire as earlier in the seventies (or later in eighties) but he was pretty well on-time, in key and did not play sporadic riffs (rhythm or lead).

You cannot be and had been.

Keith's body has standed so many "things" that he is just used today obviously.

I will give my opinion after Paris and Lyon gigs.

>> Not even an amateur (I'm one) will stop playing in that case.
Do you really think Charlie is a drum machine that needs a clicktrack to be able to play the drums? <<

rknuth, what are you being rude for?
SFTD now has a percussion loop. it doesn't adjust itself to just whatever anyone is playing.
so if Charlie can't hear it, it is a problem. eyewitnesses at that US show concluded
that Charlie not hearing what he needed to hear was the problem that infuriated Keith and caused Charlie to leave the stage.
if you've got a better explanation, let's hear it.

3-4 weeks between these 2 pictures.
I do believe that he's got the flu or whatever, coz you can't change that much in a few weeks. So let's hope it's a problem that goes away in a few days:

Albett,

I watched the Austin DVD and Keith played the solo for Aint To Proud To be in the wrong key. And his solo on SFTD was a joke.He can,t hold any notes

I did enjoy the non stones songs but the warehouses are a bore especially when you can not improvise on the playing .


play that guitar boy.

das wort heißt sediert und kommt vom Begriff Sedierung (seltener auch Sedation, v. lat. sedare, "beruhigen") wird vor allem in der Medizin, z. B. in der Anästhesiologie oder bei Psychopharmaka verwendet. Ein Sedativum ist ein Beruhigungsmittel. Zur selben Arzneigruppe gehören auch Tranquilizer.
Will sagen, daß keith wirkte als stünde er unter Beruhigungsmittel...und bevor mir jetzt vorgehalten wird, ich sei kein Arzt, möchte ich darauf verweisen, daß ich Erfahrung als Pfleger in Krankenhaus und Altenheim habe...und keith wirkte vom Gesichtsausdruck, von Mimik und Gestik 100 % wie jemand der eben sediert wurde...er hatte diese "Robotermäßige" attidüde in seinem Bewegungsablauf..und ich war A2 Reihe 1 direkt vor der Bühne, keith side..und da ich wegen des nicht vorhandenen sounds ohnehin nichts hören konnte, hatte ich genug Zeit, Keith eindringlich zu beobachten.

Well...ich bin echt gespannt, wie das ganze übermorgen in Paris sein wird...zumindest soundwise weiß ich schon jetzt, daß es perfekt wird, weil das Stade De France m.E. das Stadium mit der Besten Akkoustik in ganz Europa ist.
( abgesehen vieleicht vom neuen Wembleystadiun..habe gehört, daß der sound dort, eine für open air gigs neue, Dimension bietet....im Positiven natürlich )

Two songs out of four DVD's??? And your about the only one having a dig. Nothing to do with your MT fanatism and the fact you wish it was 1972 and Steely Dan still had long hair?

i don´t think he gets sedation, that´s the least thing he could stand.
it would actually be a mistake unless he has a lot of pain, which wouldn´t mean anything good too.


has anybody seen his belly without clothes? does anybody know how fast that belly came? i saw it in berlin last year first ,but there was not much of it. then i saw the pictures from the pirates premiere, which showed a huge progress.
i am missing in between. when did you first saw it?

Re: Frankfurt reports here please

Were now speculating that a man in his sixties has a small belly so is now doomed!!
These threads are nothing but ridiculous. We have so called experts trying to second guess his prognosis?? Like there some liver expert? Gimme a break. We've just had IOW where there was nothing but praise?
if he fluffed a few warehorses has no-one every thought it could be sheer boredom?

Re: Frankfurt reports here please
Posted by: stoneswashed77 ()
Date: June 14, 2007 14:03

no one knows what it is because you don´t get close enough to him to find out, which wouldn´t be too difficult i think, and also they won´t let us know.

we can only speculate, but it´s no longer a speculation that his condition from
40licks to now has really been going down and not just a little bit.
take monkey man from msg on dvd. what keith played last night on that song doesn´t even come anywhere close. and so the whole band became insecure not only on that song. Before they make me run was my favourite song in Hamburg in 2003, last night it was like hope he gets somehow through it.

Re: Frankfurt reports here please

This was is the worst sound I've ever wittnessed at a Stones gig^^
I was in 3rd row, Ronnies side, 5 seats from the catwalk and I couldn't make out one guitar chord.
couldn't even understand a word Mick was saying to the audience - what a bummer.
The sound was echoing like one was beating a trash container in a huge underground parking lot.
the reason for that was
1.the closed roof, while the weather forecast had no indication for that.
2.half the stadium was empty - that means behind and to the side of the stage.
3.the stage was so near to the long side that the slapback of the walls came back early and splashed back from the back of the venue many seconds later.
4.the pa was pointing rather to the outside of the wings.

overall, the most disgusting live sound!!!!

I was so fed up that I left the building in mid set and found the sound to be much better in the back. got back later tho'.
I've read a lot of talk about Amsterdam arena, but this must have topped it.
I can't say much about Keiths playing - I hardly heared him.
He did look tired, only an occasional smile or a grin.
He always had the same facial expression - not so Ronnie. he was pretty lively and it was interesting to see Keith & Ronnie comunicate about their guitar parts in I wanna hold you.
SFTD Charlie stood up, an engineer came running, did something and after a while he was back in.
I could only see their heads, so I don't know what happend.

Stupid local security guy - Ronnie tossed a pick in our area, evryone went diving for it and so was the local security guy thinking there was some kind of hassel.
The offical Stone Security dashed forward and reasoned the local guy to stay at his place and leave the audience alone. thank you - well done.

after the encore (JJF) i got hit on the head by Charlies drumstick.
Fortunately I wasn't looking at the roof - otherwise I would have lost an eye. talk about blimey^^
That was Vic Frith gauge 10 - the person behind me grabbed it - lol.

not much fun - hope things get better in Paris.

Don't understand these threads. What would be really amazing would be if Keith was at the top of his game. At 64? with his life behind him? He is bound to be inconsistent for gods sake. You pays your money and you takes your chances. The chances of it being crap increase as time goes on. Everyone has the choice to bother or not to bother, (buying a ticket) Get real.

Being rude? Sorry, if you find that question rude.
Charlie stopped playing a while after Keith stopped
playing (probably because of technical guitar problems.
The loop was still on when Charlie stopped.

OK, but I don't wanna discuss this to death. Was just
very strange to watch in this situation.

I dont necessarily think its 'bashing' in the way that Ronnie used to get 'bashed' for turning up under the influence and spending more time poiting and posing than actually playing. The general tone I've detected from the first few shows has been more a genuine concern for what appears to be the man's apparent physical fragility and possible ill-health more than anything else.

That is true, but on the other hand I really fail to see how the pics where he's supposed to look bad (From this tour), differs much from any pics we've seen of him in the last few years.

Neil, I know it and I just answered it to withsssoul. The
loop WAS still running. That prooves what I said earlier.

To make a long story short, my impression at this time was
more that Charlie cares about Keith, and that he didn't stop
playing because of technical problems.
