MileHigh, you speak the sad truth.i know a few musicians who supplement their income with a little teaching, which is helping them get by. My 7 year old grandson has been having his guitar lessons on Zoom these last three months, and plays me new chords on FaceTime. The industry may die for the time being, but the music never will.

I’ve made a mask from my RS bandana from 2002/03 Twickenham gig. No cutting or sewing required, just clever folding, and a couple of strong elastic bands to pull it back behind my ears, following simple instructions easily found on internet. Result is a really cool looking mask, what a shame I didn’t send it to Mick to sign though!

Just been watching a clip of PIB. I can remember watching these live programmes,probably my real introduction to RS A great picture further up the thread too. Back then, I was about 14, everyone told me I looked like Cathy McGowan, I had long dark hair , way down over my eyes, just like in that picture. Last year, I was prompted by a sister's funeral, to hunt out some family photos. I took

I had tickets to see John Mayall in Bexhill, UK, for 12th November, sadly this concert, and the rest of his tour, has been cancelled due to his health problems. So wishing him all the best, apparently he hopes to reschedule the tour at a later date. On another subject, has anyone ever seen a RS tribute act called The Rolling Stones Story, who tour in the UK? I've always avoided Stones tri

Unfortunately she made a few entirely inappropriate and insensitive remarks on the 'Tour Rehearsals' thread a few weeks back. The comments were eventually completely removed from the thread, she hasn't posted since, I'm guessing she was banned at that point, hence 'no longer exists' Sad really, I'm sure a lot of people enjoyed her posts, but she crossed a li

Well thanks for sorting that one out for us Green Lady. It can get tricky when our US friends use a word differently to us Brits and the meaning changes. It reminds me of when I was told about my Desert Trip tix, I said I was completely 'nonplussed', meaning I was amazed, stunned, speechless........but this seemed to upset the much younger English and Danish couple who booked the tix ..

I noticed this morning, someone has posted on three separate threads, 'are people really this bored?' (You know who you are) Clearly, some people are. So this thread is the place to post, if you are bored, instead of on another serious/funny/interesting/on topic thread. Just post it here. The rules are: Keep 100% within BV rules Just be nice If you can, post something of inter

Quote from David Hepworth's book '1971 Never a dull moment' 'It is a truth almost universally acknowledged in the record business that the longer somebody takes to make a record the thinner it's commercial prospects are likely to be. The first thought is usually the best thought and the more time an artist has the more that thought is likely to be overridden by further t

'1971 Never a dull moment - Rock's golden year' by David Hepworth A nicely presented book, a chapter for each month followed by a playlist from that month.

Maybe You Better Move On when you throw a party and find yourself counting the people who aren't there rather than the people who are there, cos you never realized it's already been The Last Time. And there's no-one at the party who knows you're just talking RS titles to see how rock and roll anyone is.

Yeah, funny innit how things happen to bring home the passage of time. Yesterday I drove back to where I grew up, where I spent ten bob on my first Stones ticket in 1965, when I was twelve. I went back to visit my (younger) sister who stills lives two minutes walk from the (now demolished) venue. I went to see her as she had just been diagnosed with dementia.

Cheapest ticket ten shillings (£0.50) 1965, Rochester, England half mile walk from home Definitely the most I have ever paid for any ticket would be Desert Trip 2, 2016, but it works best if I don't think about that aspect of the gig.......

Yeah that place served us well as kids, from Saturday morning pictures to Victor Sylvester dance classes in the '50's, (when it was the Gaumont), through to the RS concert 1965. Another memory

Oh dear, I think, once more, Hairball is maybe getting confused between 'Exhibitionism' and live performance. Exhibitionism = 'like a visit to a museum visiting all the old dinosaur bones' (I was seriously underwhelmed at my London visit) RS concert = rock and roll, nothing like the live performance, warts and all (I was seriously overwhelmed at London1 concert) I
