QuoteRocktiludrop It's so strange to just see three Stones taking a bow, that really hit me. Agree, it's heartbreaking, to me at least. Seeing it has put a lump in my throat, that feeling of loss again.

Keith is facing issues of age and it shows in his playing both mentally and physically. I love the guy but it's been hard to watch the decline in his playing. It's still pretty incredible that they're out there doing this though. And now they do so without Charlie, which will affect Keith as well.

Here in WA where we have pretty decent vaccination rates Aug was the worst month for cases ever. Hospitalizations also at an all time high. That's true in many places yet more people are out and about, more people are going unmasked, more events are being held, etc. It's hard to understand the laissez faire attitude given current data points.

I have come here every day, multiple times a day since Charlie passed. It has been one of the ways for me of dealing with the sadness and the shock of the sudden loss. I was fully expecting Charlie would be fine, that he had a routine procedure that went well and, with any luck, we'd be seeing him on stage once again in 2022. Sadly, it was not to be of course. The loss hit me much hard

My fondness for Charlie grew over the years. I came to appreciate the reluctant soldier keeping this band going for his bandmates and all us fans. I admired him and appreciated him so much for continuing to go out on the road when it was well known he didn't really like touring. I've lost count but 55 or so Stones shows and I thank Charlie most of all for bringing the joy of those into

They can, and should roll on if it's what they feel like they need and/or want to do. However, it's simply not the Rolling Stones anymore, to me at least. I doubt I will go see them, not under the RS banner at any rate. Keith and Charlie are what it was all about for me. We can debate the Stones' legacy and if or when they should have bowed out by now but I'm forever gra

Yesterday's shock has settled in with today's immense sadness. I am surprised at the depth of it. Though I always knew it would be a very sad day when one of these men passed, I had no idea just how hard it would hit me. It just hurts and I feel a void I've scarcely known. I still can't believe it.

QuoteGasLightStreet Quote24FPS I got into it with an anti-vaxxer on Facebook today. After a couple back and forths I realized I was dealing with the same mentality as Trumpers. You ask them where they get their 'knowledge' and they never answer. Pointless. I sincerely asked them to get vaccinated before it's too late. It's not like they could get the first shot and be mostly i

I was on the fence already given the current situation with covid and the thought of being packed into the pit for 4+ hours with who knows how many unvaxxed. This makes the decision easy, for me. No Charlie, no Stones. It's really sad but not entirely unexpected. I respect the hell out of Steve Jordan, hell of a drummer but oh so very very different to Charlie. I can't imagine it

QuoteWoz I think the Stones should tour. If they are all vaccinated and manage their backstage scene (as they always do) I don't see any risk to the band members. As to the audience? If you don't get vaccinated and you get sick that's on you. At this point there is a solution and if you are not willing to be part of it, well that's your problem. I'm seeing as much music a

Every delay means there's less of a chance this tour happens at all. I posted several pages back that I suspect we've seen the last Stones live show. I hope I'm wrong but expecting a group of men aged 74, 77, 77, and 80 to still all have their health, at least to the extent they can withstand the rigors of even a small tour and 2hrs on stage each show, another year on is very wis

Not out of the woods yet, not by a long shot. We're starting to think and feel that way in the U.S. but I'm not sure that's a good thing given the trends with the Delta variant. In the end however, it seems there are just too many people who prefer the false sense of freedom from lifted restrictions over common sense and there's no turning back now. The proverbial cat is ou

It's curious too how many folks will say "we don't know the long-term effects of the vaccine" as a reason for hesitancy or outright refusal to be vaccinated. Yet, they are okay with the equally unknown long-term effects of getting covid, just so long as they don't die? The vaccine is also the best defense against emerging and potentially more dangerous variants, whic

Quotebleedingman I find it ludicrous that the school of thought among some laymen is that if you don't get vaccinated, you will get the virus. If one follows that train of thought then many, many people who, for whatever reason are not vaccinated, maybe a billion or so people, will get sick and possibly die. That is not science, that is propaganda. It's perhaps overstated but seems th

That link not working for me and the one I tried to post here gave an error I did find and read it though, essentially Brexit royally screws up touring (for the moment) for UK acts.

QuoteDGA35 I mentioned on the Stones postponing thread about Elton. I saw him in Vancouver twice in Sept 2019 and each show was identical down to the between song talking. I'm sure the BC Place show will sell out since it's the only one for Western Canada and the US Northwest. There is a big gap before Vancouver and after so I'm sure he might add a couple more cities.

Ah, I remember the good 'ol days of early internet buying and logging on at the on sale time and actually getting through and then actually getting good tickets! I bought a bunch for No Security that way, almost all in the first 15 -20 rows on the floor. Now, even if you're in within the first minute there's usually nothing good available anyway!
