I saw Shine a Light in the theatre, but I can't even get through the DVD once. The stage performances depicted in the movie are that bad. Keef just can't play anymore! Nearly half his playing in that movie is cringe-inducing. When he's not taking songs off, he can't even play in time. And the guest spots are pathetic!
The man is one of my greatest musical inspirations, but I'm weary of being an apologist for him. If Keef can't play any better than he has recently, it is time for the Rolling Stones, my favorite rock 'n' roll band ever, to get off the treadmill and go home for good, particularly in view of what tickets cost these days. Hey, age happens.
Ticket prices have nothing to do with it. If you don't like the performance fine....but don't relate it to ticket prices. The comparison is irrelavent!!
the more I listen and or watch this version, its kind of embarrasing. On other parts of SAL keith is great, but on this song Its like He can't get the lyrics right to save his life. and to me it seems he has this attitude like " I don't have to know the words"... then why bother? I just get this impression that he and mick are in different worlds and at the moment when they share the mic, it really seems forced.
