If they wanted to mix it up a bit, I think a good opener would be "All Down the Line." As far as I am concerned, JJF is the best possible closer.

I have to say that he did strike me as slightly spaced out during the last show in Boston, too. He did seem to interact less with other band members than in other occasions, but on the other hand his guitar playing was much, much better than in the previous ABB shows I had seen. I believe he is probably just fine - I don't think they would let him go on stage if he weren't. But it is al

And many of those songs, I might add, sounded great live. The versions of Out of Control, Saint of Me, Flip the Switch, and perhaps especially Thief in the Night are themselves worth the price of No Security.

Possibly their most underrated album. There are some parts that make me cringe a little (like the rap on Anybody Seen...?), but certainly less than in any of their albums since Tattoo You.

I guess my impression of the crowd may depend on where I was seated and - perhaps especially so - by the fact that my last show was the one in San Siro, where the crowd was absolutely insane (though the show wasn't nearly as good). Anyway, my advice for those who have seen them in the US in 2005 is to go again; this show blew away any ABB show I had seen (5 before this one).

Wonderful show, maybe the best I have ever seen from the standpoint of setlist, performance, and sound. I certainly never heard Ronnie play this well. The crowd was nothing to write home about,even though the stadium was almost full (with some empty seats here and there).

"Dabbling" is not that big of a deal, really, unless one buys the demented AA philosophy that teaches addicts not to do things in moderation (the hardest and perhaps healthiest option), but to avoid them altogether. I know people who have come out of two year rehab programs for heroin addiction and have, in fact, "dabbled" repeatedly. They did not take up the habit again and t

I said a few words when I came back from the show earlier this morning, but wanted to write a fuller review to provide a somewhat different perspective from that offered by some here. Went with my father - a Beatles fan - who had never been to a Stones show. This was my 9th show; the 5th this tour. The crowd was in a festive mood and participated enthusiastically throughout (World Cup victory

So, okay, let me get this: Totti spits in the face of some Danish player, gets kicked out of Euro 2004 and gets called a thug. Then De Rossi elbows some American player, is sent off, and is rightfully called the same name. But when Zidane does something much more heinous - entirely consistent with his prior history, by the way - the thug is Materazzi? If all it takes for Zidane to snap is a littl

Just came back from the show. It's almost 5 AM in Venice. I agree about the sound problems. But I think your judgment on Keith is way too severe. He has always forgotten lyrics to songs (listen to some early 70s versions of Happy). He sounded perhaps a bit more ragged than usual tonight, but not so bad after all. SFTD - as well as many other songs - sounded much, much better tonight than at

If Materazzi told Zidane he is a terrorist, I guess the reaction kind of proved him right... Plus, it is really ridiculous that the French would be so shocked by these words, when the immigrant community is kept in segregated urban reservations where they are denied most opportunities other Frenchmen enjoy. Our cheese-eating, surrendering friends only become ecumenical during the World Cup. Go

France dominated the second half, but Italy ran zero risks the whole match. While the only thing France did was to score on a penalty kick that only the referee saw, Italy scored a goal, hit a crossbar, and had a goal disallowed (De Rossi was offside on that, but not Toni; it is arguable whether De Rossi was an "active player" on that play). France demonstrated superior technical ski

Hope the critics will be silenced now. While Italy's defense is obviously the backbone of this team, I don't recall any team during this World Cup that started a tied overtime period with four forwards. Certainly not England nor Germany nor Portugal nor any of the other supposedly more spectacular teams. This team plays everyone tough and has demonstrated a will to win each and every ga

The only hard and fast rule in international football seems to be that when it really matters the English invariably choke. For a team that plays so tough, it's really quite fascinating that they whimp out with such frequency. It's getting a bit repetitive, but I enjoy watching it every time.

I have never liked Undercover - and it is not for lack of trying. I take it out of its case periodically to give it another go - hoping I might have missed something - but I can hardly bear to listen through the entire thing. Doesn't belong in the same sentence as Exile.

Beast of Burden would probably be my choice. But then again, that might be the reason why I am not particularly looking forward to getting married. If You Can't Rock Me would also pretty much mirror my thoughts on this whole wedding business.

While the red card for Materazzi was completely uncalled for, the penalty was in my view beyond dispute. Grosso obviously looked for the penalty and ran into an Australian defender who was clearly out of control. He didn't dive; he just did a smart play. In the end, Italy played its usual, gritty game and created 5-6 chances in the first half. As for the Australians, the game would be still

I might add that if this board existed 35 years ago, it is quite possible that we would have heard the same kinds of arguments. I can imagine people in 1973 complaining that the Stones did not sound like they did in 1969. Or people in 1975 lamenting that they had finally lost their mojo.
