"Cherry Oh Baby" was played on the '75 tour??? It sure wasn't performed at the Forum shows in July '75.

I'm a B-52s fan as well as a Stones disciple. If any B-52s/Stones fan attending tonight's show would be kind enough to report on the set that they play aT Radio City Music Hall and post in this space, that would be appreciated. I saw them recently and much of their show was from their first two albums (the mustard & ketchup LPs) and Cosmic Thing from 1989 or 1990. Stones fans goi

What city are you in? Your public library may have music magazines from the '70s, but that's may likely if you are in a large metropolitan area. The New York Library has issues of Rolling Stone dating back to the first issue, although the early issues are on microfilm and aren't easy to read. Vintage issues of Rolling Stone, especially from the 1970s, capture that era beautifully.

Keith was wearing a Pirate shirt at the Forum show on Monday. And the video graphics during Keith's two songs included pirate elements, I thought. I don't recall these graphics from the last swing through L.A.

I'm hoping that the return to this venue will inspire the boys to make the show a little extra special. They have not played the Forum since 1975, although I believe that the New Barbarians played here in the late '70s. The Forum was once the premier concert venue in Los Angeles but beginning with the '81 tour, the Stones favored larger, outdoor sites like the Rose Bowl, Memorial C

Here's a fresh concept. Capture the ABB tour with "Warhorses": a series of 20 albums released simultaneously. The first album would have 25 performances of Start Me Up; the second would have 25 performances of You Got Me Rocking; the third would have 25 performances of Tumbling Dice, etc. One of these albums could even have 25 band introductions. Industrious fans could mix and matc

No one has yet mentioned that piano interlude that closes the album, a tribute to Stu. That's the highlight of Dirty Work.

I'm looking forward to the big-screen presentation of the Rio performance on Feb. 28. Does anyone have information about this screening beyond what Rollingstones.com has already announced? Will it simply be the televised concert? Will the band bother to repair any glitches in the show?

I can't even pick a favorite side from Exile, let alone a single song. Each side is a unique experience. I think Exile is as brilliantly sequenced as any Stones album.

I like the names of the forums. If I would suggest a change to anything, it would be to change the color of the home page every now and then, or replace the illustrations of Brian and the band with something else --something more contemporary. Three of the six Rolling Stones depicted in the sketches are no longer performing with the band. Every time Ron visits the page, he must think, "After

On the version of Memo From Turner on the soundtrack to Performance, who are the musicians? I know that Ry Cooder plays guitar --and of course I know the vocalist-- but what about the rest of the band?

I loved the raw sound, the spectacular, uncluttered stage, the fiery performance, the absence of distracting effects, the setlist that dipped into three distinct eras, and even how the boys were dressed. It should have been longer . . . they should have come back for an encore.

Better to have the censor blank the vocal than have Jagger sing something G-rated. I read that the infamous Ed Sullivan performance of "Let's Spend Some Time Together" happened the day of the very first Super Bowl 39 years ago. I haven't verified that, but it was reported in a piece in the Los Angeles Times.

Someone posted here that the Stones are performing in the Super Bowl halftime show for the money. According to a piece in today's Los Angeles Times, that is not true. "Not only did the Stones agree to participate, they agreed to do the halftime show for Super Bowl XL (40 for you non-Latin speakers) gratis, even paying for some of their own special effects."

I've always had an affection for the goofiness of this line: "Waitesses with broken noses/checkout girls striking poses/and politicians' garish wives/with alcoholics ----- like knives." The entire verse is good, but Jagger's delivery of the lines above is classic, in my opinion.

From an AP report: . . . Wonder lifted his microphone up and said: "If we didn't want the Stones, we wouldn't be here. We want the Stones." "They even recorded two of my songs," he said with a smile. OK, I know that one of Stevie's songs recorded by the Stones is I Don't Know Why. But what is the other? Is it so obvious that I'm going to be e

5:30 a.m. (Los Angeles time) on January 31 is when the Oscar nominations will be announced. The Oscars will be handed out on March 5, the day before the Stones perform in nearby Inglewood. There is no halftime in the Oscar ceremony, so don't tune in expecting to see a Stones performance.

I recently stumbled on a brief item published in Rolling Stone in 1973, shortly before Goats Head Soup was released. The published track listing included "Through the Lonely Hours" (which should have been called "Through the Lonely Nights" and did not surface until the following year, as the B-side of "It's Only Rock 'n Roll") and "Criss Cross Man.&quo

Just thought of a place that every music-lover visiting Los Angeles should experience: Amoeba Records, at the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Cahuenga. It's the musical hub of the city, and a great place to hang out. (Bring lots of money.) And if you HAVE to see the Hollywood sign, the Walk of Fame and the footprints in the cement at Graumann's Theatre, you can easily get those

Um, I have to offer contrary words to the previous posts. The I-5 does not connect Santa Monica and Inglewood. The freeway Midnight Toker must be thinking of is the 405. Also, the "dodging bullets" reference really makes Inglewood seem like a violent town. I've gone to the Forum plenty of times, and have parked for free on surrounding streets without incident. And I have neve

In the U.S., Funeral was a 2004 release, and it dominated the year-end lists one year ago. It was released in the U.K. in early 2005, so it has been showing up in this year's rankings. Phenomenal album, incredible band. It would be interesting to hear them in 42 years.

Kayne West finished first in the Rolling Stone Top 50 Records of 2005, and the White Stripes finished third. But in between them is A Bigger Bang. The capsule review begins: "The greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world made its best studio album in more than two decades as a band: no celebrity guests or excess sessionmen, just the basic gang of four (wuth bassist Daryl Jones) on
