In August of '01 (Gads! Was it that long ago?) I was sitting with a friend in the bar at 19 Broadway in Fairfax, California listening to MT's soundcheck. Our ears perked up and heads spun around when we realized he was playing his version of this song. To my knowledge MT had not yet played it live and the debut would not come for a few weeks. But it was a nice moment...What!!??

The Farewell Tour I show from Melbourne has been popping up on TV. I highly recommend it. The band looks and sounds great. The lanky Schmit and Smith are fun to watch. It is wonderfully shot. The cameras are where they should be. There is a warmth in the band. It is finally at peace with itself, confident and comfortable with its legacy. The performances are deliberate, precise and unapol

"If Keith's solo presents a primordial Lucifer, Taylor's presents the Prince of Darkness in all his splendor, majestic and beguilingly playful." (Shamefully quoting myself)

No sax solo. London, 1st on the 8th is the only one I know of without a sax solo that sounds this good. My favorite live version of this song. Recorded by this board's own Silver Dagger, I believe. The intro does not make any sense. Dubbed?

At the Forum in Inglewood, CA on November 8, 1969 there was an afternoon hockey game followed by two Stones concerts that included the well known supporting acts of Terry Reid, BB & Ike & Tina. To my memory the Stones did not take the stage for the 2nd show until 2:00 a.m. On the very fine boot of this show you can hear Jagger allude to the late/early hour saying "If we had known w

I am not sure if there are multiple recordings of this show, but you can clearly see a taper at the front of the stage in the GS movie. I once synched the video of SFTD with the audio tape and could see the tussling in front of the stage and hear it on the tape. The taper you could see was in the midst of it. Good for him for hanging in there. At some point this show settles down and it'

Bought this on vinyl from a record store in Isla Vista (Santa Barbara), California. Still have it, I think, somewhere. Got it because I was at this show. An average at best audience recording as I recall. But as time goes by its historical significance out weighs its short comings. Has an encore, too. Saw the band there is '69 and '73 as well.

There is a wonderful video of Robbie Robertson & Ringo and a world-wide assortment of musicians playing The Weight. It is a wonderful song, performance, video and an amazing logistical feat to watch. It has heart and perhaps hope for us all. I hope this link works. Otherwise you can look it up at The Rolling Stone Mag site or You Tube. Sorry if there is an ad. Maybe someone can fix that.

Someone says something, then it gets repeated and it gets tossed around as a given truth. George is the least of the three band songwriters, but still more than holds his own in front of this star-studded cast even after many years of stage absence. The Rooftop Concert is a delight. Paul is still performing and thrilling audiences. John's NYC concert is a compelling demonstration of musi

One wonders what he is thinking at the moment. One other thought about Taylor and TD. In the Montreux sessions during TD 1 Taylor mangles the solo; but during TD 2 he knows exactly

Keith probably thought wow we have picked the right guy here, now i can concentrate on nailing that rhythm guitar and do what i do best, and together we forge the best rock and roll band in the world. I have not noticed Keith restricting Taylor with his playing the way he did Ronnie, one reason i don't believe the official reason Taylor left the band, no way was Keith holding him back in an

QuoteDandelionPowderman 1969? Keith did the main solos on SFTD (save NYC), HTW, LQ, C, GS, LWM and even on BS. And the solo set on PS and YGM, of course. Pretty even back then The one song that defines the evolution of the band during those 3 short weeks is SFTD. Other than a one off solo by Taylor in Oakland SFTD was strictly a Keith solo, Taylor rhythm affair. Somewhere down the line Ta

I cannot think of this song without thinking about how fond I am of the interesting and perplexing Vancouver performance. Are flubs on stage evidence of lack of preparation or rehearsal time? Is it boldness, courage and confidence? Or is it laziness or hubris? Is the performance "real" or simply sloppy? In any event the performance stumbles along for some reason or another until Ta

The Eagles Reunion 1 Tour DVD from Melbourne (recorded in late '04, released in '05) is really, really good. I have never been a big Eagles fan (to this day I hear enough for my taste on the radio), but this performance is hypnotic. Great songs, vocals and guitar-work. Who the heck is Steuart Smith?

Interesting question, again. I saw the band in '69, but have only met one person who saw them earlier. It was in Sacramento the night Keith got zapped. I have only met one person who attended Altamont. She told me she was way back on a hill and had no idea what was going on in front of the stage. I remember sitting in the audience at the Forum in '69 waiting and waiting for the b

Drysdale and McCovey...the same thing. Drysdale would get him out for a while, then McCovey would hit a couple home runs, then get plunked on the hip or in the back and the cycle repeated.

Quoting someone else: "It's best heaven is achieved by grace. If it were by merit it would be full of dogs." I spoke with an elderly man after we lost our first Lab. He recalled the loss of his Lab. I asked him when that was. He said 20+ years ago. He spoke as if it were yesterday. They stay in your heart and they deserve it. We currently have Lab #3. He is happy, playful

In '72 the band was everyone's darlings, the media, the critics, the celebs and the fans. You had the Boston show to add to the bad boy image. I know I am quibbling, but it is too bad the Texas shows were shot and not this one (Dead Flowers notwithstanding). My favorite tour is still '69, but by the end of this tour the band was well greased, muscular and hit you like a Mack tru

When she was on she left blood on the stage as she tore her heart out in a way Judy Garland could do. But Janis was more reckless, took more risks. Her singing took her out on a limb where few singers dared to go. She was frightening. I'd pay a concert fee just to witness her singing Ball & Chain.

Quoterattler2004 This version of Sister Morphine came up on Shuffle while I working in the garage. One word, FEROCIOUS. A characteristically self conscious Jagger wanted to deflect any criticism by unnecessarily apologizing for this song. Unnecessary because its performance was probably the most compelling of the show.

In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace." Trump: 'I knew her well - she worked for me on numerous occasions.'
