A relative of the man in the middle was staging with the founder of the Rolling Stones in that same year ... ... goosebumps ... So which relative of John Lennon stayed with Brian Jones in 1959-or thereabouts? Do tell. I can't until "Charles" put the lights on green. I know it may

From the footage I've seen from his recent tour, he's not in great shape - he has to sit in a chair due to a variety of neck and back issues over the years, which have resulted in nerve damage. His voice is still pretty good, but it's sad to see.

QuoteRollingFreak Oh I'm aware. I just wouldn't say his voice is stronger or has gotten stronger over the years. It is, bless it, what it is. Not an insult at all, it just seemed like an exaggeration to call it stronger than it ever has been in the last 30 years. Its all essentially been the same. Agreed.

Elton had vocal cord surgery in 1987 (removing a benign lesion), resulting in more resonance and a lower register - between that and age, he obviously doesn't sound the way he used to in his heyday, but is still quite good within a certain range (check out his studio work this century). This isn't a recent development - if you go back to the surgery, it's been like this to some de

Quotekv2915 Quoteroryfaninva Its all about the franchise. Just like Lynyrd Skynyrd. If people go to see the show and have a good time, whats the harm? Never a huge fan but Ive gained some appreciation for the original Leadon-Meisner-Frey-Henley line up, basically following the path Poco blazed with their proto-country rock. Seems kinda corporate now. Bernie Leadon and Don Felder were not a

QuoteRollingFreak In the end, we all know what the real Eagles band was. It was never a rotating cast. It was 4 guys, which became 5 and 6 when they added Don and replaced Bernie. Thats really it. Not sure how we've started pushing the idea they're the Grateful Dead or Fleetwood Mac or something. Thats a falsehood, if we're trying to bring facts into this. There were 6 members up t

Not sure I'd go if it was just "Steely Dan" alone on the bill, but Steve Winwood is opening and he's always fantastic. Glad I saw them when Walter was around, and the same with the Fleetwood Mac Rumours lineup a couple of ti

QuoteHairball Yeah Jah Paul - didn't intend to lump all Eagles fans together, and in a previous post I did say "...most Eagles fans". Still think it would be WAY more difficult for the Stones to try and replace Keith - even the most causal fan (even a non fan) would realize something major was missing. I agree on that. I've always been sort of a purist (as much as possi

QuoteRocky Dijon She should have made you sing "Joy to the World" (Three Dog Night, not the Christmas carol). We sang that one...included in one of our evening music programs where our parents and siblings would attend, probably '73 or so (third grade for me). I remember rehearsing it a lot!

QuoteHairball My older sister had a greatest hits album around that time, but my first true memory of them is hearing Close To You repeatedly on the radio in the summer of '70. "On the day that you were born the angels got together, and decided to create a dream come true..." - such a nice tune (written by Burt Bacharach). I remember after I heard the news of Karen's passi

They played L.A. last go round, but this is special. This is where the Super Bowl will be in 2022, and the main venue for the Olympics in 2028.

I don't mind outdoor concerts in smaller venues (Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, for example), but I "retired" from stadium shows years ago (The Police in 2007 was the last one - and I only went because I had never seen them)...distant seats, plus crowd/traffic issues are among the reasons I don't do it anymore.

As a kid in the '70s, the Stones were one of the first bands where I learned of "road versions"...namely with the change in the way the choruses were sung on JJF ("All right now" instead of "Allllll riiiiight now") and HTW ("Honky tonk, honky tonk" instead of stretching it out) - must have been the Love You Live versions. In retrospect, they were just

QuoteGasLightStreet QuoteTumblinDice76 Yeah, I disagree. The 60's started in 1960 not 1961 and so on. I count 2020 as a new decade. Math says otherwise. Culturally, of course people will say 2020 is the beginning of the TwentyTwenties. But factually, just as the millennium didn't start until 2001, decades END on a zero, not start.

You can't force it...he'll either like them and want to hear more or he won't. I was first exposed to the Stones through Top 40 radio when I was a kid, initially Tumbling Dice and Happy, followed up by Angie in '73. Bought the "Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo" single when I was eight, but during those early years, I was just a casual fan. It really wasn't until Tattoo

QuoteLazarusSmith I'd prefer that Giles backtracks to Rubber Soul and Revolver for the next releases. The band were becoming true studio wizards and were feeling their experimental oats -- would be fascinating to hear some earlier takes of stuff like "Tomorrow Never Knows." By the way, I came across this in Mark Lewisohn's book and never realized there was a Stones connecti
