Hello all, Every time this topic comes up I repost my Toad's Place story. It's a bit long but worth the read if you are interested in this tour warmup gig for historical significance from someone who was there. HBK

I've seen 'em all going back to 1972 and IMO the NF stage is best for the overall fan experience, especially for big stadium seating. The video technology blows every other prop away and helps maintain the focus on the band and the music. I loved the other set ups as they happened (VL my fave) but looking back, NF wins for overall in-your-face impact. HBK

So I've read all the back and forth and can see both points of view on Charlie vs Steve. For me it comes down to; Should I boycott a band with Mick, Keith and Ronnie that plays Rolling Stones songs? Because they cannot replicate the Charlie swing with the replacement drummer and yet dare to call themselves the Rolling Stones? The answer is no. I would like at least one more chance t

It's entirely possible that they are preparing something for the pre-show video before the band hits the stage. I like the idea of kicking off the show with a video of Charlie playing an opening drum riff, like GOMC, with the band joining in synch with a flash of lights and loud guitars. HBK

Quotegeorgemcdonnell314 The 3 shows from Landover were some of my favorites. Nice photo you shared. Thanks. QuoteHouseBoyKnows There may be one or two shows I am unaware of, but I attended and photographed 14 shows and have seen numerous 1981 photos and Charlie always wore the purple and blue stripped T-shirt.

As a US citizen, I was able to board plane and enter the US from South Africa last month with the easier antigen test. PCR test not required for me but maybe it is for non-citizens. HBK

I was in Paris when Jim Morrison died. although I did not know it at the time, backpacking through Europe, staying in hostels. It was the Summer of Sticky Fingers and Who's Next. Also visited Nice, France and did not know Stones were across the bay in Nellcote at the same time. HBK

Agree on Paris 3 2017. I reported at the time it was "ramshackle fun". Still, I think the best versions were during the later dates of the 1981 tour. HBK

From one of my knowledgable sources explanation of the origin of these compiled tracks, there should not be anything that was recorded after 2002. So unlikely Goddess or BB sessions. I cannot provide further details but the speculation on more discs maybe forthcoming was confirmed. HBK

Underground Garage just played Put Me in the Trash. Sounded great and I turned it up loud. Then I went to the 1993 Webster Hall gig video. I was there and forgot that I am in the video near the front. Good times. HBK

I've always enjoyed this version of imagination and Whip from the same night with Bill's amazing bass lines. We had to live with the PPV audio and video for almost 8 years until Steel Wheels, and I played it more than any Stones show before or since. I attended 14 shows in 1981 including both Hampton gigs. As the set list became pretty frozen over the final month, it's interes

I think the biggest difference in the 60s is that all we (the teens) had was our radios and, with some exceptions in the big cities, we all listened to the same music growing up. That may be a somewhat over generalized but it was the same with TV as well. We all saw the artists on Ed Sullivan, American Bandstand, or in the UK Top of the Pops etc. This contributed to our shared memories. That i

I Have been a Van fan since the sixties and first saw him live in 1973. His records are sometimes uneven but mostly wonderful and I've always liked his shifting between styes and collaborators. He is also on a recent run of very good LPs in rapid succession and his voice is incomparable. Having said all that, let's be honest, he is a bit of a jerk. His latest stance is one example.

I put B&L into a mix of LPs of all types of rock and blues on my computer which feeds into my home system. It always brings a smile when one of those tunes comes up. Good stuff. HBK

In the US it certainly seems that advertisers are using many classic and not-so-classic 60s and 70s rock tunes for their TV commercials. And these are for products aimed at younger audiences, not Boomers. HBK

I have an interesting personal story here. My dad flew back and forth to London several times on the Concorde in the 70s and 80s. He loved telling me the story about how he met MJ in the Concorde lounge when they were both checking out the liquor and pre-flight buffet. He told Mick that his son was a big fan and he was cordial. My Dad also remarked at how "little" he was and that he

War on Drugs is a Philadelphia band with a large worldwide following (for an indie band). I've been onto them for years because of their local origins. They are basically the Adam Granduciel band as he is the main writer and vocalist. Dreamy wailing guitar sounds with soaring productions which I have often called the modern Pink Floyd . . . maybe a little My Morning Jacket. If this Sto

Madison Square Garden July 25, 1972 (evening show). My first Stones show. I remember being amazed at the leads he played. Ya-Yas was my main point of reference at that time, and I was a total Keith fan and always thought of him as the Stones lead guitarist. HBK
