THAT is simply no excuse.

Wish that you had seen the 13 Colonies tour, at least. Mick Taylor looked
like a young George Washington, Keith was furious because he wanted to be the
one in the white wig. He actually called Mick T "a punk."

I guess that's where they got all their material for 'Brown Sugar', from first hand observation.

Was looking thru my collection and found the set list for their very first concert. Really some rare gems here.

Eve (I need you baby)
Sympathy for the Snake
That's How Strong My Loin Cloth Is

The show was cut short after the crowd of two rushed the stage.

Definitely the first tour of the "real" Rolling Stones. Long before their notorious "Free Concert at SinaiMont" during which a stoned crowd of Israelites pissed god off and were severally punished by Angels from Hell - a concert which is regarded still as belonging to the late Stone age.

BTW - One early tour the didn't do - and for much good reason - was their Sodom and Gomorrah tour just after recording their Sodom's spirit Album - "Buggers Banquet".

IMHO they really peaked during that tour.

I still love looking back at the papyrus scrolls...so vivid.

Does anybody know if they did any shows aboard the Ark? I heard that it rained heavily throughout the tour, but most of the shows were indoors.

Yes, they did - along the canals of New Amsterdam, as a free concert to promote the 1795 tour.

I think they played Ruff Justice at the Globe - but that was in 1592.
Shakespeare was spotted, backstage in the Rattlesnake Tavern, with Keith, discussing the composition of a Madrigal.
always with those hangers-on. charlie says sigh.

No rumors, please.

Keith, sadly, does not remember that much of the 1792 tour.
He may have mentioned "hanging out with William Shakespeare in "Life" but it just didn't happen.

My memory is beginning to fail me.

wasn't that the number where they got out their
dulcimers to play acoustic? what with nonexistent
electricity and all. i guess no-one can say for sure,
lest he manages to track down that infamous 1792 bootleg.
you know the one that's supposed to be recorded on one
of 'em edison phonographic wax cylinders

Ben Franklin had discovered electricity by then so they were able to play electric instruments, but it wasn't an easy task.

You may recall that at one point Keith was actually electrocuted on stage.

It was dangerous then (and now) playing guitar attached to a lightning rod during a thunderstorm (also exceptionally hard scheduling concerts more than a day or so in advance).

Oh but the electric guitar sounded good though.

Wasn't it Brian that used that rod as a bottle neck?

Loved their 300 Columbus anniversary medley on that tour. Talk about invasion!

I heard the tour was announced as:

"THE BRITISH ARE COMING, THE BRITISH ARE COMING! Myck Jaeger and his Rollyng Stones!"

They did a show through the cobblestone streets of New Amsterdam on a flatbed trailer drawn by 6 horses.

The show ended after only 3 songs because of horse flatulence.

Well, at least we know Keith isn't suffering from Alzheimer's because if he was, he would not remember anything recent, but would have a good memory of things in the distant past cool smiley

doc emmett l. brown could help you with. i recall him
(and marty mcfly) being at a lot of those really early
concerts. no clue how they did it. it's all about the
timing, i guess. the stones are experts in timing

that really all comes down to Charlie...lucky he got his training as drummer in the 3rd US Infantry Regiment Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps during the Revolutionary War.

Little known fact is that's also where he learned how to hold the sticks in the 'jazz style', years before they invented jazz.

Truly revolutionary.
