For those on Spotify there's a great interview with Darryl - recorded just a few days ago, on the excellent Rockonteurs Podcast (with Guy Pratt and Gary Kemp)... https://open.spotify.com/episode/6eMK4OOiDwdRIso9dHQhrc?si=172764a1e47d4e98

QuoteSpud It's a better album than most give it credit for...but it's let down by the clumsy "brick wall" mastering . It's the one and only Stones album that I literally never put on. Not helped by the mastering for sure but (imo of course) the songs are just not up to par. I liked Rough Justice when it was released but I can happily live without it now. Really hope

Drums Robert Adam Stevenson. Keyboards Was lucky enough to see one of the Albert Hall shows. His band are phenomenal - Rhonda Smith and Anika Nilles are a powerhouse of a rhythm section - and a great

Having attended both HP shows I thought there was a marked difference in their performance personally. Particularly in the first half - Keith was all over it, playing better than I've heard in a long while. Honestly one of the best versions of HTW I've heard them do (and yes, that includes the fact that it was SJ on drums). YGMR was superb I thought - Ronnie nailed the solo. Mick see

QuotePaintMonkeyManBlack Loved it; what guitar did Keith use ? He played a Sunburst Les Paul Junior (Possibly a '57 - if you're into the sort of detail!) - and it sounded filthy. And for those asking about the hug at the end. Keith played an extra stab on the guitar after everyone else had finished (not unusual). Steve Jordan seemed to find it funny from what I could see (from a

The live tracks on the Eileen EP are particular faves of mine (Gimme Shelter is one of the best ever renditions imo) so I've listened MANY times - 99% sure that the new re-issue version is different to the Eileen EP. Not that any of this really matter obvs! It's all just geek sh*t

QuoteBlueTurns2Grey QuoteGasLightStreet QuoteBlueTurns2Grey QuoteGasLightStreet The Eileen EP live tracks were from 12-18-1992. Supposedly this issue of How I Wish is from the same show. This version starts with different lyrics, it's not from Dez. 18. It didn't sound the same to me. I haven't cross referenced it yet. I've been looking for what other shows were recorded an

Quotedennycranium Quoteflilflam All I hear from Jordan is bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, and bang. Few fills and change of tone when the mood of the song changes. Mainly noise. But, maybe he will get better. The new drummer should be auditioned and he should be someone from the UK. Many guitarists were auditioned when Mick Taylor left the band. Why not do the same for the drumm

A truly great loss. I'm so glad I got to see Charlie play many times with the Stones (since my first gig at Wembley in 1990) and also in more intimate settings - Ronnie Scotts with the Tentet (what a gig!) and Pizza Express Jazz club with the ABC&D of Boogie Woogie. It is/was never difficult to get distracted at a Stones gig by the showmanship of rest of the band - but to allow yourse

QuoteKoen Curious how Midnight Rambler will sound. I was thinking that. I suspect it will sound magnificent - turbo-charged even. Steve Jordan can definitely play a mean shuffle.

QuoteHTD QuoteWoz QuoteBashlets It won’t even sound like the stones. I’m out LOL! Overreact much? No doubt this sucks but it will sound like the Stones. Probably not. Watch a Winos video. Jordan beats the hell out of the drums. Charlie has a smooth jazzman's touch. It will sound like Keith Moon sitting in, although Jordan can keep time. Duck Steve Jordan can absolutely play with

QuoteBig Al I only know of Jordan's drumming with Keith. How is his style going to fit the Stones'? I suppose he will be studying Charlie's live technique and and will attempt to replicate it. Truthfully, I don't particularly like what I've heard from him. Steve Jordan is a fantastic drummer who swings like crazy, No it won't be Charlie - and won't sound like

Aside from the obvious surprise of this announcement (never thought they'd go on stage without Charlie) - and hoping he recovers very soon, from a purely musical pov it will be very interesting to see how Steve Jordan fares. He's obviously a hell of a drummer with a serious groove and has the chops to do this gig - I just wander if he'll adapt his style at all to try and play more

Saw him not that long ago (10 years maybe) - reunited with WAR (or what was left of them) at the Royal Albert Hall. He was still a dynamite singer - just a tremendous voice and very charismatic performer, Always thought it would be great to see him guest with The Stones. Still not too late!

Quotenellcote'71 I recall a Stanley Booth interview where he said Keith used to listen to Lucille Bogan's Shave 'Em Dry when they were hanging out in 1969 or around then. Yes - it's in his 'True Adventures of the Rolling Stones' biog (one of the best imo)

Interesting he picked up on the 'you make a dead man come' line as an example of them pushing the sexual envelope etc. As we all know, that line was lifted from Lucille Bogan's 'Shave 'em dry' from 1935 - although that itself was a cover of an earlier version. I wander who originally came up with that line. They deserve a pat on the back whoever they are!

Now I have them both I've got the Swinging Pig 3 CD box set - and I have to say the new release is a big disappointment in comparison (imho).

One of the highlights of Live Aid (as far as performances go) was Mick pulling off Tina's skirt in IORR - a classic 'spontaneous' moment between two of the best front men/women ever. Although for some reason there's no trace of it on You Tube anymore. Anyone know why? EDIT: Actually just found it here https://www.facebook.com/watch/

At my first Stones concert age 16 (Urban Jungle Wembley - July 1990) I arrived super early to secure a front of stage spot. Feeling a little tired after several hours of perching on the concrete steps - at some point during the early afternoon you could here sound checks going on (the usual snare drum being played over and over by a tech etc.) And suddenly the riff from How I Wish blasted out.
