He was just trying not to look like a retrograde hippie on that tour. Let's be honest, if they had not basically laid down a hot show on that tour most of us would not be hanging around this site.
Both Empire Burlesque and Infidels are better than Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery tour and other such pop drivel. Forum: Tell Me
I grew up in Detroit where every self-respecting rocker carried a "DREAD" card. "Detroit Rockers Engaged in the Abolition of Disco." Some bagged on the Stones for it but the songs sold well and got a lot of airplay and the whole thing died out in a year or two. Go to YouTube and check out "Anti-disco night at Comiskey Park Steve Dahl" for a taste of the era. Forum: Tell Me
I think CH by a hair, in part because it doesn't have any crap songs like Neocon, or Sweethearts together. If I had a friend that didn't know latter period Stones, and I wanted to prove they still have it, I would give him CH. Forum: Tell Me
It shows them tightening up from the sloppy play of some prior tours. Pretty lively versions of some fun songs, including Little Red Rooster with Clapton. Wish Gimme Shelter would have been on it. Hard to say you hate this album and love other live albums unless you are filtering it highly subjectively based on your own life. It rips. Forum: Tell Me
Yeah still waiting for Seattle litho and t shirt. They won't even say when it will be ready. They probably wait and see how many orders they get, then begin looking for the cheapest possible source, and get put to back of line. Forum: Tell Me
So I am watching "the Hustler" last night and Piper Laurie says to Paul Newman: "I've got troubles, I think you got troubles, maybe we should leave each other alone."
Which Dylan basically used verbatim in "Seeing the real you at last" on Empire Burlesque. Forum: Tell Me
