I no longer have any interest in seeing the band perform live; it would basically be a continuation of what they've been doing for the past decade or so: The Wash, Rinse, Repeat Tour'. Still, if they've got the energy to continue to get up on stage for a couple of hours every third or fourth night and not embarrass themselves, then more power to them. In that case I might watch a f

Quotedcba QuoteFancyBluesMan I'm fully aware that Mick is free to do whatever he pleases at this stage of the game but I'm sorry, I want the genuine article...Keith's Open G riffs, Ronnie's fills, Charlie's metronomic drumming...and will accept nothing less. No more solo stuff, no more collaborations Do you realize you put a creative death sentence over Mick' head.

QuoteGhostTown2021 I've been listening to the Stones long enough now, close to sixty years, to know that NOT every song features "Keith's OPEN G riffs, Ronnie's fills, or Charlie's metronomic drumming". However, I'll thank you for taking the time to point that out but you clearly missed my point: I want to hear something from the band as a unit, not these side

Just because Mick is remaining active and recording/putting out crap like 'Eazy Sleazy' doesn't immunize him from the criticism being hurled in his direction by those who find this latest 'effort' a bore. Would you be lavishing him with praise if he were to release a collection of children's songs while the Stones continue to remain dormant, simply because "he&#

Didn't feel like posting a pre-game teaser prior to the Patriots-Dolphins game (really...what would have been the point?) but I will acknowledge the 'obituaries' that are being written now that NE has failed to make the playoffs for the first time in 12 years, suffered their first losing season under Belichick since 2000, and relied on an offense that looked like it had been culled

The more I think about it, the more Cam Newton looks like a guy who was converted to QB after being drafted to play another position. The passing stats once again failed to barely register a blip on the radar screen as the NE offense struggled to put points on the board in a game against the Rams that was there for the taking. Yet, almost immediately after the defeat, Belichick reiterated that &q

Without a doubt, Bobby Keyes' solo on 'Brown Sugar'. Had to be his signature moment...although his contribution on Elton John's 'Whatever Gets You Through the Night' wasn't too shabby either.

Quick turnaround for the Patriots as they follow up their initial Sofi Field appearance with another LA matchup vs. the 'We Are Not the LA Chargers' Rams on Thursday Night. Same old story for NE: win in order to keep alive any slim chance at making the playoffs. Rams have a pretty stout defense so scoring points could be hard to come by. Patriots will need another solid effort from t

Well, in response to the question raised in my pre-game post, Jarrett Stidham DID replace Cam Newton vs. the Chargers today...but with the Patriots LEADING by a score of 35-0! Did anyone honestly see this one coming? While Newton's passing stats were once again minuscule, his 87.4 QB rating was a marked improvement over the previous week's 23.6. Only 69 yards through the air but one

QuoteGasLightStreet QuoteFancyBluesMan Seems as if that was the prevailing narrative until they signed Newton, after which everything went south for Stidham... I live in the south. Actually below the Deep South. It's 100% better than the North. Hell, it's 110% better, a 150% better, any percentage better. A million. The abuse of that term has got to stop. It's highly offensive.

If the Patriots were willing to spend $25 million on the QB position, Brady may not have left. And Teddy Bridgewater might have been NE's target once he did. But at the time of Newton's signing, there was hardly any cap space available, yet Belichick franchised C Joe Thuney for $14.5 million and gave Stephon Gilmore an extra $5 million to keep him content. Not only have the Patriots scr

Willie Mays... I remember a conversation I had with my Dad about baseball when I was a kid (he was a catcher in the Cardinals' minor league system for a bit) and he told me about the time he had gone to see Mays play. I asked him what it was like and he said "He was everything everyone said he was".

Hey Chris, Funny, people were pleading with the Patriots to offer Newton a contract extension after the first two games; now, they're getting in line to drive him to the airport in anticipation of him being shipped out of town. I wouldn't say NE got scammed on the deal...Newton has done all the right things since arriving, except play well...but Belichick definitely botched things up

Biggest question re: Sunday's Patriots-Chargers contest does not center around who will win the game, but whether or not Cam Newton gets pulled if he cannot improve upon last week's abysmal performance (23.6 QB Rating) vs. the Cardinals. It's been a mighty struggle for Newton on many fronts since he returned from his COVID-19 diagnosis: an inability to adjust plays at the line o

My forst venture into the world of bootlegs began back in the 70s, when I was securing Stones' bootlegs via mail-order from a place in New York doing business as Adlibitum Records. It was a very rudimentary operation...run out of a P.O. Box...but I had good success dealing with them. They furnished a monthly catalog list, which included prices and sound quality ratings, and you simply wrot

Took a while for this song to get my attention. Granted, far from their finest, yet it still has enough appeal that I never skip over it...unlike 'Can't Be Seen With You'. Musically, I like the fiddle and mandolin contributions and the sound of Keith's voice when he harmonizes with Mick. Sure do miss those days when they used to share the mic onstage.
