I remember the headline the day after the first Anaheim show:

Sad Day for Rock, Stones turn to dust.



As one of the articles mentioned, the fans were left standing in the hot sun waiting for the Stones for about 3 hours after the last opening act. Planes doing loop de loops and tight rope walkers entertained us while we waited for the world's greatest rock 'n roll band. Lots of drinking on stage and long waits between songs while they repaired guitar strings and the like. A real bad show. Next day the came back with vengence and rocked us out of our shoes!

I was at the "shoes" show. Unlike '69, '72 and '73 that show did not make a lasting impression on me. I remember it being fun, but also feeling patronized. The band's "tough" stance and look was adapted to be punky. The crowd played along and Jagger was dodging things (frisbees, shoes) the whole day. When he got tired of it he said "Let's have them all" (or some such thing) and up the shoes came. Musically, the band sounded dumbed down to me. The double rhythm assault rocked, if you like that sort of thing, but I find it numbing. I can't tell you one thing I remember about the performance of any song. I thought the sound was a product of the post-punk days and did not realize that "weaving" was going to become a trademark sound. It was my first time seeing the band in a stadium, so perhaps that put me off. I saw them again in '81 at a monstrous extravaganza at the Coliseum and that was it until '99 when the returned to arenas. I remember thinking it was fun, but I guess it was also thoroughly forgettable.

I'm willing to bet our wait in New Orleans in 78 was longer than 3 hours after the Doobie Brothers left the stage. It took the Stones forever to hit the stage.

I thought he was Steve McQueen according to Lynn Goldsmith.
They might talk about Keith Moon.

Really interesting stuff, guys. Thank you. Reading those magazine reports tc. is like making a trip with a time machine.

Particularly, Jagger's thoughts are interesting. I didn't know, for example, that he wrote "most of" 'Before They Make Me Run'. I have always thaought that this songs is Keith thru and thru. Funny is also to read how bothered and annoyed Jagger really is of their bad reviews, even though he tries to hide it with his usual humour and irony. He is VERY aware of what's going on in the 'critics section' and music business.

I don't know how the people viewed at the time but somehow I feel that Jagger's punkish attitude is a bit too thetretical, a bit too calculated sounding and looking, an attempt to stay trendy, you know what I mean. There is nothing wrong with that, but somehow the result is not quite convincing. Any thoughts?
