1. Angie
2. Get Off Of My Cloud
3. Jumpin' Jack Flash
4. Sympathy For The Devil
5. Satisfaction [I Can't Get No]


All class songs Angie i feel is a standout great emotion attached to it.  I always think Get Off Of My Cloud was a great way to say fuck off without sorrying shows a bit more thought going into things great tune to.  The other 3 choices are obvious ones i suppose but they are good all round songs Sympathy For The Devil though is far superior live the studio version isn't a patch on it and in my opinion not even close to Guns N' Roses cover of it.

Great news. However, it's propably fairto bet that the album will be completely overshadowed by the mega tour that will probably accompany it  -even if they can pull of a collection of songs to rival 'Sticky fingers' or 'Let it Bleed'.

The Rolling Stones recently concluded recording sessions for a new album in Paris with producer Don Was. The band will reconvene in the New Year for additional sessions for an album tentatively due in summer 2005, Was tells Billboard.com.

Was describes the Stones' new music as considerably different from their recent releases. "Mick [Jagger] and Keith [Richards] are writing songs together in a collaborative fashion that probably hasn't been seen since the late '60s," he says. "I would say that longtime fans of the Rolling Stones will be thrilled with these results, and new fans will understand why they're the greatest rock'n'roll band in the world."

Was recalls sessions in which Jagger and Richards composed spontaneously, sometimes with Richards playing bass and Jagger on drums. "He's a great drummer," Was confides. "He's also playing a lot of guitar, and he's a really good guitar player. He's been playing bass on some things, [and] Keith is playing bass on some things. They're just great -- there's a reason that they've been the Rolling Stones for so long.

"And they can do it four times a day, every day," Was says of the pair's writing sessions, "and they're really good songs. I've never seen anything like it."

Drummer Charlie Watts, who was recently treated for throat cancer, also attended the Paris sessions and is in excellent health, Was says. "And he's playing like a lion," he adds.

I was kinda shocked when I first read this tonight. I liked the few news songs they had on the "40 Licks" album. I'm sure they will go on another big tour.  Looks like 2005 should be a great year maybe for new albums.

 The Rolling Stones are expected to announce plans for a new tour during a Tuesday (5/10) press conference that will originate from New York City's famous Julliard School of Music.

Though the band hasn't officially tipped its hand as to what Tuesday's announcement will be, various news reports say that a live telecast and performance is planned.

Earlier this year, Boston officials approved plans for major concerts on Aug. 21 and 23, which are widely expected to be the shows that launch a Stones world tour predicted to run well into 2006. The Stones' last outing was the 2002-2003 "Licks" world tour, which played to more than 3.4 million fans and grossed nearly $300 million, according to Amusement Business.

The outing will include a stop at the New Charlotte Arena in North Carolina, home to the NBA's Bobcats, the Charlotte Observer reported. That show reportedly will take place prior to U2's Dec. 12 concert at the same venue.

CBC news reported this week that the Stones are planning an early September outdoor show in Moncton, New Brunswick. Promoters are quoted as predicting that the show, at the 60,000-capacity Magnetic Hill concert site, will be the largest concert ever held in Atlantic Canada.

Charlottesville, VA's Scott Stadium is also expected to host a show, according to local news reports.

Earlier this year, producer Don Was told liveDaily that he was working with the Stones on a new album that is expected to hit stores later this year. Meanwhile, Virgin Records recently issued re-issued versions of two best-of albums from the Stones, "Sucking in the Seventies" and "Made in the Shade."

 The Rolling Stones officially unveiled plans for their long-rumored 2005/2006 tour during a brief Tuesday (5/10) performance and press conference in front of hundreds of fans outside New York City's Julliard School of Music.

Proving they've retained their chops after more than four decades in the business, the Stones--Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood--opened the event by playing "Start Me Up," trotted out a new song titled "Oh No Not You Again," and wrapped up with "Brown Sugar" before taking a few questions from the press.

Organizers confirmed previous reports that the North American leg of the tour, sponsored by mortgage company Ameriquest, will launch Aug. 21 at Boston's Fenway Park. The first leg wraps up Dec. 1 in Houston, and about 35 shows are confirmed so far. The itinerary is below; additional North American shows are in the works for early 2006.

Opening acts haven't been announced. "We kinda know [who will open], but we're not gonna say," frontman Mick Jagger said at the press conference.

Though there were pre-announcement rumors that the 2005/2006 tour would be the band's last, Jagger shot them down. "We never say this is the last tour," he said. "We take each tour as it comes."

Like the Stones' 2002/2003 "Licks" tour, the upcoming outing will visit a mix of stadiums, arenas and clubs. But unlike that tour--which visited fewer than 20 North American cities--the band will not play different-sized venues in the same market. Rehearsals will begin in Toronto "sooner than you think," Jagger said.

Tickets for shows in Boston; Washington, DC; Atlanta; Charlotte; and Calgary will go on sale to the general public on May 14; other on-sale dates will be announced.

According to a press release, about 5% of the tickets will be premium "Gold Circle" seats. The remaining tickets will average $99 for stadium shows, $110 for arenas and $50 for clubs and theaters.

Pre-sale tickets will be sold via the Stones' online fan club; details are available at the group's website. American Express cardholders will also have access to a limited number of pre-sale tickets in select markets.

Tour promoter Michael Kohl said that several hundred seats have been built directly into the set that will be used for stadium shows. "The band is redefining the concert experience--there is nothing even comparable to the thrill of being onstage with the Rolling Stones and seeing a stadium show from the band's perspective," he said in a statement.

Besides North America, the trek is expected touch down in Mexico, South America and The Far East (possibly including the band's first-ever performances in mainland China). The outing will end in Europe during the summer of 2006.

The tour will support a new, as-yet untitled album, which Jagger said is about "85 percent done." No release date has been scheduled.

05.10.05 Rolling Stones Official Tour Press Release
THE ROLLING STONES ONSTAGE

WORLD TOUR

To Launch August 21st at Boston's Fenway Park

Stones Redefine the Concert Experience Giving Fans the Chance to Be ONSTAGE


NEW YORK, NY -- (May 10, 2005) – The Rolling Stones announced today the kick off of the Rolling Stones World Tour at Boston's legendary Fenway Park on August 21st. With 35 dates already confirmed in the U.S and Canada, the band will then tour Mexico, South America, the Far East and finally Europe in the summer of 2006.

Fans, along with hundreds of members of the U.S. and international media gathered at Lincoln Center, were treated to the ultimate surprise performance by the Rolling Stones. As the famous opening notes of "Start Me Up" blared across the plaza, a giant banner with eye-popping signature tongue logos dropped revealing the band performing on the balcony-turned-stage of the 100 year old conservatory, Juilliard. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood played three songs for an ecstatic crowd, including "Oh No Not You Again," a new track off their upcoming CD along with their classic hit "Brown Sugar." This marks the first time the Rolling Stones performed at a press event since 1975 when they sang "Brown Sugar" on top of a flatbed truck as they rode down 5th Avenue.

The Rolling Stones Onstage will once again showcase their diversity as musicians and performers by playing three dramatically different venues from the grand scale excitement of a stadium, to the thrill of an arena to the intimate setting of a theatre and club with special set lists. This year's tour takes the concert experience to the next level by bringing together the advantages of an up-close club experience with their electric stadium show. The band will fulfill the ultimate dream of music lovers across the globe, offering the unimaginable-the opportunity to be onstage with the Rolling Stones. Several hundred seats are built directly into the stadium set, offering fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share the excitement and adrenaline rush of being onstage as the Rolling Stones perform to an audience of 50,000 plus.

"The band is redefining the concert experience - there is nothing even comparable to the thrill of being onstage with the Rolling Stones and seeing a stadium show from the band's perspective," said Michael Cohl, tour promoter. "For fans this will be the greatest tour yet."

Rolling Stones Onstage will combine the spectacular production and charismatic performances that fans have come to expect. The band will be working closely with the design team responsible for the sensational sets, dramatic effects and state-of-the art technology on previous tours from "Steel Wheels" to "Licks."

The Rolling Stones hold the record for the top 2 most attended North American tours of all time.

Fans are able to enjoy special access to tickets, exclusive merchandise and can also follow the tour online at www.rollingstones.com. For the first time ever, concert goers will be able to see the exact seat locations and choose the price level of tickets before purchasing a platinum membership to the fan club. Every ticket sold for the tour will include a free Virtual Ticket membership in the Rolling Stones fan club. Updated daily, users will be given an exclusive insider's look at every aspect of the tour. From rehearsals and preparations to on-going coverage via audio and videos streams, downloads, set lists and news and much more.

The U.S. leg of the Rolling Stones Onstage World Tour is presented by Ameriquest. "With music that appeals to a wide spectrum of the American public, the Rolling Stones offer Ameriquest a broad platform to strategically communicate our brand, our services and our positioning as, 'Proud Sponsor of the American Dream'" said Brian Woods, Chief Marketing Officer, Ameriquest Mortgage Company. "In today's saturated marketplace, the Rolling Stones break through the clutter to reach fans in a way that few iconic brands can. Being the presenting sponsor of this tour allows Ameriquest the opportunity to reach those fans by fulfilling their Dream to see the Stones on stage live."

American Express has a long history of providing special access and meaningful experiences to Cardmembers. As part of this ongoing commitment, American Express has partnered with the Rolling Stones to secure a special opportunity for Cardmembers to purchase their tickets (in select markets and venues) to what promises to be an incredible tour prior to the general public on-sale.

Tickets will go on sale May 14th for Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Miami, Charlotte, and Calgary, with additional markets and dates to follow.

In keeping with the band's philosophy of making their shows accessible to all fans, tickets for the stadiums, arenas and theatres/clubs will be available in a broad range of price categories. There will be a limited number of Gold Circle seats while the remaining 95% of the house will average $99 for stadium shows, $110 for arenas and all tickets for theatre/club shows will be $50.

Continuing their historic creative partnership, Mick and Keith began writing together last autumn and have since recorded with Charlie and Ronnie. Their highly anticipated full length studio CD with all new material will be released by Virgin Records in conjunction with the tour.

Rolling Stones World Tour 2005/2006 will be presented by Concert Productions International and The Next Adventure and produced by WPC Piecemeal Inc.

 The Rolling Stones , who will kick off a world tour Aug. 21 at Boston's Fenway Park, have added a second show at the historic ballpark.

The new Boston show is set for Aug. 23. The move wasn't surprising; earlier this year, the City of Boston granted organizers permission to stage two Stones concerts at Fenway.

Tickets for both Fenway Park shows are scheduled to go on sale to the general public on Saturday (5/14), along with several other shows. Details are in the itinerary below.

Pre-sale tickets have gone on sale for some dates via the Stones' online fan club; more information is available at the group's website.

The first leg of the Stones' 2005/2006 tour wraps up Dec. 1 in Houston, and about 35 shows are confirmed so far. Additional North American shows are in the works for early 2006.

Like the Stones' 2002/2003 "Licks" tour, the upcoming jaunt will visit a mix of stadiums, arenas and clubs. But unlike that tour--which visited fewer than 20 North American cities--the band generally will not play different-sized venues in the same market.

Besides North America, the trek is expected touch down in Mexico, South America and The Far East (possibly including the band's first-ever performances in mainland China). The outing will end in Europe during the summer of 2006.

Well if tickets are only 100-105 as stated before they even went on sale then I'd have to say "just a little", 'cause last time they came to the Wachovia it cost me 300.00 a ticket...when they tour, they are in effect,  a virtual corporation (you know how corporations are(heh heh)that opens its doors for the duration of a tour (year, or more) and then they just close up shop...I imagine they will have a Euro leg also...soon as they get done here...I wish we had someone other than John Mayer opening here...would have loved to see a local east coast band open up for them...

You are talking equipment and basically a whole team of folks...yes?
I was just a bit perturbed because they were touting tickets for 100-105 when they did the press release...why say that if it's not going to be the case...but don't get me wrong...those dudes put on a helluva show...I swear I really don't know how Mick can keep running around for 2 1\2 hours with only two breaks (when Keith sings)...bastard is in better shape than me LOL

After selling out upcoming stadium gigs in the New York City and Chicago markets, The Rolling Stones have announced plans to play arena shows in both cities.

The latest itinerary issued by the ageless rockers has the group touching down at New York's Madison Square Garden on Sept. 13, and playing at Chicago's United Center on Jan. 23. The band's previously announced gigs at Chicago's Soldier Field and East Rutherford, NJ's Giants Stadium have already sold out.

Tickets for the new Chicago and New York shows go on sale Friday (6/10) and Monday (6/13), respectively. On-sales also get underway Saturday (6/11) for previously announced dates in Portland, OR; Seattle; and Glendale, AZ. Before tickets go on sale to the general public, pre-sales tickets will be available to members of the Stones' online fan club. Details are available at the Stones' website.

The first leg of the Stones' 2005/2006 tour opens Aug. 21 in Boston, and most announced shows have already sold out. The jaunt wraps up Dec. 1 in Houston, and about 35 shows are confirmed so far. More North American shows are in the works for early 2006, in addition to the just-announced Chicago show.

Aside from North America, the trek is expected touch down in Mexico, South America and the Far East (possibly including the band's first-ever performances in mainland China). The outing will end in Europe during the summer of 2006.

The Rolling Stones  have announced plans to return to Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl for the first time in almost 40 years during their upcoming North American tour.

The show, which is the latest addition to the first leg of the band's North American itinerary, is set for Nov. 6, and tickets are scheduled to hit the box office next Monday (6/27).

Meanwhile, a Saturday (6/26) on-sale is in place for the group's previously announced Sept. 8 concert in Milwaukee.

Members of the Stones' online fan club have access to tickets prior to the public on-sales. Details are available at the group's website.

The Stones last performed at the Hollywood Bowl on July 25, 1966, according to Reuters. That date was the eve of frontman Mick Jagger's 23rd birthday.

The group's Nov. 6 return to the venue is its second planned stop in the Los Angeles area during the upcoming tour; a previously announced show at Anaheim's Angels Stadium is set for Nov. 4.

The Rolling Stones are finalising plans for their studio album in eight years.

Expected to be released on September 5, it?s believed the band have recorded 18 tracks from which the final album will be selected.

The album was recorded in France during late 2004 and spring 2005 with producer Don Was. Mixing took place in Los Angeles earlier this summer.

Among the tracks being considered for the album is ?Neo-Con?, which is believed to be an attack on the politics of George Bush and the Republican administration.

Meanwhile other songs that may feature on the record include: ?Oh No, Not You Again?, ?Back Of My Hand?, ?She Saw Me Coming?, ?Under The Radar?, ?Look What The Cat Dragged In?, ?This House Is Empty Without You?, ?Walking Alone In The Rain? and ?You Drive Too Fast?.

The album, is the band?s first studio since 1997's ?Bridges To Babylon?, while ?Oh No, Not You Again? which the band performed live in May when they announced their forthcoming world tour in New York, is rumoured to be the first single.

As previously reported, the Rolling Stones kick off their world tour on August 21 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Rolling Stones  have settled on the title "A Bigger Bang" for their first new studio album in eight years, and have nailed down a Sept. 6 release date for the set.The title--which the group came up with while recording the set last year--reflects the band members' "fascination with the scientific origin of the universe," according to a press release.

The collection boasts a formidable 16-song tracklist, making it the band's longest set since 1972's "Exile on Main Street." Among the new songs are the forthcoming singles "Streets of Love" and "Rough Justice," as well as "Oh No, Not You Again," a track that the group premiered during a May press conference at New York's Julliard School, where the band announced plans for its upcoming tour.

Also included on the disc are the cuts "Infamy" and "This Place Is Empty," both of which feature lead vocals from guitarist Keith Richards.

Other song titles include "Back of My Hand," "It Won't Take Long," "Laugh, I Nearly Died" and "Rain Fall Down."

Frontman Mick Jagger and Richards--a.k.a. The Glimmer Twins--co-produced the set with Don Was, who also co-produced a number of the band's previous album, including its most recent studio set, 1997's "Bridges to Babylon."

When the new album arrives in stores, the Stones will be in the midst of the first leg of their 2005/2006 world tour, which kicks off Aug. 21 at Boston's Fenway Park. The group is asking fans for input on the setlist for the outing; details are posted at the band's website.

METALLICA will be the special guest for THE ROLLING STONES as part of their "A Bigger Bang" world tour at SBC Park in San Francisco on November 13 and November 15. An additional opening act will be announced shortly with times for both concerts being moved up an hour to 6:00 p.m. PST. METALLICA joins a diverse list of top opening acts, including THE BLACK EYED PEAS, MAROON 5, PEARL JAM, JOHN MAYER TRIO, LES TROIS ACCORDS, THE TRAGICALLY HIP, OUR LADY PEACE, TREY ANASTASIO, JOSS STONE and BECK.

"Over the course of our career we've been fortunate enough to share the stage with a select few of the bands we grew up on, admired and respected including AC/DC, DEEP PURPLE, GUNS N' ROSES and IRON MAIDEN. The only band that we have never played with but have always wanted to is THE ROLLING STONES," says METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich.

"Having the opportunity to play with them this November in our hometown of San Francisco is both an honor and a privilege. And it's bound to be a lot of fuckin' fun especially since we haven't special guested since 1992! These shows will enable us to recharge our batteries, both creatively and physically, as we prepare for the next phase of METALLICA."

Tickets for THE ROLLING STONES at SBC Park on November 13 are sold out. Tickets for the November 15 performance are on sale now at BGP.com, Ticketmaster.com and at all Ticketmaster outlets including Tower Records, Wherehouse Music, Ritmo Latino, select Save Mart and select FYE stores, and Tix Bay Area in Union Square.

The U.S. leg of the "A Bigger Bang" world tour is presented by Ameriquest Mortgage Company. ROLLING STONES' world tour 2005/2006 will be presented by Concert Productions International and produced by WPC Piecemeal Inc.

The Rolling Stones , who officially launch their "A Bigger Bang!" tour later this month in Boston, will hone their stage chops with a Wednesday night (8/10) club gig in Toronto, where the band has been rehearsing.Tickets--priced at $10 Canadian (about $8.25)--quietly went on sale at Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre this morning, and the Stones are scheduled to take the stage at the venue tonight. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., according to the Stones' official website. Canadian rockers The Trews will open.

The Rolling Stones are expected to tour the world over the next year to support their upcoming album, "A Bigger Bang," due in stores Sept. 8.

Earlier this month, the group released exclusively via Apple's iTunes Music Store three cuts from the new set: "Rough Justice," "Streets of Love" and "Back of My Hand."

About 1,000 Rolling Stones fans packed a Toronto nightclub Wednesday night to watch the band play an intimate last-minute show, marking their fourth surprise performance in the city in 11 years.

The playlist for the small concert, held at the downtown Phoenix nightclub, included old and new songs like Brown Sugar, Stay With Me, Oh No, Not You Again and a cover version of Bob Marley's Get Up, Stand Up.

Tickets went on sale Wednesday morning and were priced at just $10 each, a far cry from the $60 to $450 that concertgoers will pay to see the band perform next month at Toronto's Rogers Centre.

All the tickets were sold out as of 10 a.m. EDT.

Canadian rockers the Trews opened the Wednesday's performance. The Stones have given three surprise performances at intimate Toronto venues in the past.

Eager fans who got wind of the rumoured concert started lining up outside the Toronto club on Tuesday afternoon.

Some were rewarded with $10 tickets, which were sold on a first come, first served basis at the Phoenix Wednesday morning. In an attempt to stop scalping, tickets were limited to one per person and each buyer was afixed with a wristband, which must also be worn intact to the concert.

But many fans who waited overnight left empty-handed.

"Tell me to go home and I will lick my wounds and I will go. But don't make me hang out all night," said Terry Nicol, who blew off his job for the day in an attempt to snag a ticket.

The Stones have been rehearsing at a Toronto school for the past month in advance of a world tour, which opens Aug. 21 in Boston.

The first Canadian date is the open-air concert at Ottawa's Frank Clair Stadium on Aug. 28. An outdoor event will follow on Sept. 3 at Moncton's Magnetic Hill. With about 75,000 tickets sold out in just a few days, the New Brunswick concert is being touted as the largest ever held in Atlantic Canada.

The Toronto stop at the Rogers Centre is set for Sept. 26. The Pengrowth Saddledome in Calgary hosts a show on Oct. 28, and the final Canadian stop is the Bell Centre in Montreal on Jan. 10, 2006.

The tour is expected to last a year. After 35 dates in the U.S. and Canada, the band will head south to Mexico and South America, before travelling to Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The tour's final concerts are scheduled for next summer in Europe.

i saw them in philly 2 weeks ago. it was my 5th or 6th time seeing them, but first time indoors. it was incredible. they sounded great. lots of energy. and they've been changing up their set lists alot, but the night i saw them, the set list was my favorite of the tour based on what i've seen posted in fan sites.

they just sound so good. hearing them on a great sound system like that was incredible. they have that perfect balance of sounding precise, but raw at the same time. for me, the highlight of the show was "you can't always get what you want". i was blown away. there was alot going on and it just all came together perfectly. i honestly got the chills at a couple different moments of this show.

where/when are you seeing them at?

Tickets fro the first wembley show sold out very soon after going on sale last friday. Tickets for the rest of the UK shows (inc the second wembley show) go on sale on friday morning. Of course, if you are willing to fork out the $100 dollars to join the fanclub, or if you have access to an American Express card, you buy in the presale, which is already on for the second Wembley show.

Thanks to ebay, I am going to see them at Wembley on the 20th.  8) I was fortunate to find a that were not being sold for too much more than the face value. Hey, I'll probably only end up with a marginally better view than I would get from the Goodyear blimp, but I'm dead chuffed all the same. And I know people say about all of their tours, but this really could be the last time. (Charlie's recent Cancer scare reminded us all that they won't be able to keep this touring lark up for too much longer).

The Rolling Stones' 2005 North American tour is the most successful of all time, it has been reported.

The 'A Bigger Bang' concert tour of North America, which ran over 42 dates from August 21 in Boston to Dec. 3 in Memphis, grossed $162m (?94m), reports Pollstar. The jaunt, seen by over 1.2m people, overtakes the band's 11-year-old record of $76.8m (?70.1m), set on the 'Voodoo Lounge' tour.

Really cool about the stones, but I wonder if its really the biggest tour of "all times". I mean arent there any other bands or singers who have made it bigger and earned more money? I know those Stones figures are huge but I still have doubts.

Is this necessarily accurate? I mean have they grossed more because ticket prices are more expensive (especially for a Stones gig!)?

I saw the Anaheim show.  I was very disappointed.  It was probably the worst performance that I have seen of the Stones.  Additionally, people (including myself) pay a boat load of money to see them now (I think our tickets were about $100 each, and we were very very far from the stage), and I am sick of having "Give me Shelter," "Wild Horses," and other classics left off the play list so Keith Richards can play his solo garbage.  This was definately the last time I am going to see the Stones.

For anyone who didnt know the Stones are playing 3 songs tomrorow during the Superbowl Halftime Show


Title: Re: Official Rolling Stones Thread
Post by: Malcolm on February 06, 2006, 04:21:45 PM
While it is hardly a repeat of ?nipplegate?, the Rolling Stones performance today at the half time SuperBowl event appears to have been censored.

The Stones performed three songs at the show. The line from their current song ?Rough Justice? seemed to have had audio problems just as Mick was about to sing the word ?cocks?.

The lyrics go ?once upon a time I was your little red rooster/now I?m just one of your cocks?.

We can only assume that an ?honest mistake? also occurred when The Stones performed the classic ?Start Me Up?. In the original version, the last line in the song is ?you?d make a dead man cum?. It appears the SuperBowl must have been running short on time, not permitting the band to get that far into the song before it ended.

The only song that escaped censorship was the 40 year old classic ?Satisfaction?.

The SuperBowl performance became a global laughing stock in recent times after Janet Jackson?s ?wardrobe malfunction? became a tabloid scandal dubbed ?nipplegate?.

If the people behind the SuperBowl are equally offended by Stones lyrics, then maybe they should broadcast their show next year through the Disney Channel.

The Rolling Stones ) issued a statement on Tuesday (2/7) expressing the band's disappointment about the censorship of parts of two of the three songs the band performed during Sunday's (2/5) Super Bowl XL halftime show."The Rolling Stones thought the censorship of their songs by the NFL/ABC was absolutely ridiculous and completely unnecessary," said the statement, attributed to a band spokesperson.

The NFL cut Stones frontman Mick Jagger's microphone during sexually suggestive passages of two songs, "Start Me Up" and "Rough Justice." Only "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" made it through the censors unscathed.

An NFL spokesperson told the Associated Press that the Stones were aware of the league's plan to lower Jagger's mic during the passages; the band's spokesperson didn't dispute that point.

they have played it, on the Bridges to Babylon tour

I think its a great song too, but it doesnt fit in the setlist, there are too many classics to play and, although a good song, Anybody Seen My Baby doesnt deserve a spot in the set

Thats my opinion anyway

a bit sad that the stones were censored...i dont think that sort of censorship really matters anymore...you cant really corrupt people with 2 words :hihi:

Probably man, but "ASM baby", has a nice vibe... It would be interesting to see them playing it live again...

another reason they probably dont play it live because the chorus was kind of accidently ripped off from a kd lang song, constant craving i think it was...they probably have to pay royalties everytime they sing it

The Stones landed in Rio at 2:40 this morning. They did not talk to the press and were immediately driven to their hotel under a strong security scheme, A bus and a Mercedes left the airport at 3 am, escorted by 30 policemen in motorcycles, 15 police cars and private security. They took the longest route to the hotel to avoid the "red line" (dangerous district). They entered the hotel through a back door, disappointing some 100 fans that were waiting at the main entrance.

Ron Wood showed up in the balcony holding a cell phone.Later Keith showed up as well.

They have requested a car to do some sightseeing today and are expected to visit a samba school tonight or tomorrow. After the show they bare expected to go directly to Buenos Aires.

 The Rolling Stones gave a free concert in Rio on Saturday night and more than one million fans turned up for the gig.

The city was in crowd control mode for the gig with more than 10,000 police officers rostered for crowd control duty.

The setlist was fairly consistent with the current A Bigger Bang world tour shows with no real surprises to mention.

The show was filmed for an expected DVD release later this year.

As happened in the North America, the Stones and U2 and weaving in and out of cities, both on major tours.

U2 will be in Australia mid-March and Stones dates are expected to be late April.

The Stones setlist for Rio, February 18, 2006 was:
1. Jumping Jack Flash
2. It's Only Rock'n Roll
3. You Got Me Rocking
4. Tumbling Dice
5. Oh No Not You Again
6. Wild Horses
7. Rain Fall Down
8. Midnight Rambler
9. Night Time Is The Right Time
10. This Place Is Empty
11. Happy
12. Miss You
13. Rough Justice
14. Get Off Of My Cloud
15. Honky Tonk Women
16. Sympathy For The Devil
17. Start Me Up
18. Brown Sugar
19. You Can't Always Get What You Want (encore)
20. Satisfaction (encore)

If you wanna see how a big rock show is done right, look no further than these guys. : ok:
I paid pretty high for my ticket, but it was worth every cent! :beer:

They played all their hits and I was happy to hear them play Dead Flowers (which GN'R used to cover) and Angie (which VR have covered), so it was almost like? a GN'R show! ;D

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has suffered a mild concussion while vacationing in Fiji and was flown to a hospital in New Zealand as a precaution, a spokeswoman for the band said in a brief statement Saturday.
Media reports in Australian and New Zealand said Richards hurt his head when he fell out of a palm tree at an exclusive Fiji resort.
"Earlier this week Rolling Stone Keith Richards suffered a mild concussion while on holiday in Fiji," the statement said. "Following treatment locally and as a precautionary measure he flew to a hospital accompanied by his wife Patti for observation."
No further details on the 62-year-old rocker's condition were immediately available.
Newspapers in the Fairfax media group reported in their Sunday editions that Richards was flown to the Ascot
Hospital in the northern New Zealand city of Auckland on Thursday after the accident.
Steve Kirby, duty manager at the Ascot Hospital, refused to confirm Richards was a patient there, citing the hospital's privacy policy.
The Fijilive.com news Web site reported that the accident was believed to have happened at Fiji's exclusive Wakaya Club resort.
Salesi Finau of the resort told The Associated Press that Richards and his wife recently stayed at the resort for about a week, but would not say when they left.
Finau also refused to comment on the reports Richards had an accident. "I am sorry, I do not have any comment on that," he said.
The Rolling Stones played a concert in Wellington, New Zealand, on April 18 as part of their "A Bigger Bang" world tour. According to the band's Web site, the Stones' next scheduled concert is at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona, Spain, followed by 34 more dates across Europe.

It seems Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards will be going in for brain surgery following his fall from a coconut tree in Fiji last week.

What was originally announced as a mild concussion has now been upgraded to a brain hemorrhage, which is treated by drilling a hole in the patient?s head and allowing the blood to drain out.

This was allegedly discovered after Keef suffered continued headaches, supposedly AFTER his concussion diagnosis.

He is expected to make a full recovery after the operation is complete.

It is unknown how this will affect the remainder of The Stones? ?A Bigger Bang? world tour, due to resume in a few weeks.

Keith Richards had 'blood clot on brain'
Monday May 8 06:24 AEST

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=99111

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is believed to have had surgery for a blood clot in his brain, and there are concerns about his condition.

It is understood the 62-year-old's condition was much more serious than previously reported and he remains in New Zealand while the rest of the Rolling Stones are gathered in Europe for the next leg of the band's world tour, the NZ Herald reported.

The newspaper said the operation was for a subdural haematoma, a blood clot that forms in the outer membranes of the brain, often from a torn vein. It can be caused by a fall or other head injury.

The operation was performed soon after he arrived in New Zealand from Fiji, the paper said, citing a source.

His condition was described at the time as a mild concussion.

Richards' New York-based publicist Fran Curtis denied earlier reports that he had suffered a brain haemorrhage.

She said over the weekend that he was in "good spirits" and was adamant he would join the rest of the band in Barcelona for the kick-off of the 35-gig tour as scheduled on May 27. She did not know when he would be leaving New Zealand.

Richards is believed to have fallen from a coconut tree at the exclusive Wakaya Club resort in Fiji on April 27.

They'll make any decisions about the German dates in about 4 to 6 weeks.  If Keith continues to recover like he has, they'll be all set for the dates post July 5th.  If there are any setbacks, they'll postpone more of the tour.

Richards ready to roll after head injury
Tuesday Jul 11 14:26 AEST

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards says he can't wait to get back on stage after recovering from a head injury that forced the band to delay the European leg of a world tour.

"Everything's cool," 62-year-old Richards told a news conference on the eve of the first concert of the European leg.

The ageing rock band, revered for such classics as Start Me Up and Jumpin' Jack Flash, was supposed to begin the European leg with a show in Barcelona in May.

But they pushed back the date to let Richards recover from surgery after suffering concussion when he fell out of a tree while on holiday in Fiji in April.
 
They also changed the country, choosing Italy for their opening gig.

"I've recovered ... I can't wait to get back on the stage," said Richards.

Fellow guitarist Ronnie Wood was just as keen, saying he was ready to play after checking out of a London rehabilitation centre for alcohol abuse.

"I feel great," said Wood.

The four-member band will perform at the San Siro soccer stadium in the northern Italian city of Milan on Tuesday before embarking on a 20-show tour of Europe that will end at Horsens, Denmark on September 3.

Wearing a silver suit and violet shirt, the band's singer Mick Jagger said the set list would be different from the one they had performed in Asia and the Americas.

"We keep moving it along all the time," he said.

Since the 2005 release of their latest album A Bigger Bang, the Rolling Stones have performed on three continents before a combined total of 4.5 million fans, according to their tour director.

Their biggest show was at Copacabana Beach, where they played before one and a half million people.

They also performed in Beijing for the first time.

Mystery still surrounds the circumstances of Richards' accident and he remained vague about it at the news conference, saying only that he fell from a small tree and not a coconut tree as had been reported.

"If you saw the tree you would understand the joke," he said.

"It was a very little tree."

Richards confirmed he would make a cameo appearance in the third instalment of the popular Pirates of the Caribbean movie series, saying he would spend a week on the set in September.

He is to act as the father of Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp.

The movie is due to be released in 2007.

Jagger left open the possibility of the Rolling Stones recording another album and doing another tour.

"We look forward to doing more," he said

Review by Sjouke Hoving
After the accident with Keith so many people were sceptical about the Rolling Stones European Tour. Well, it must be said? no dissappoinment at all after the first show in Milano. It was a hot day, at some point a screen at the San Siro showed 42 degrees Celcius? we met with some people of the IORR forum at the Smooth bar before to talk and have some beers. Thanks Carlo for organizing this? When I went in around 19.30 it was still hot, 39 degrees Celcius? The audience was great, as one can expect from an Italian crowd. p> Feeder opened the show and then around 21.10 the Rolling Stones started their European leg of the Bigger Bang Tour. The opening song Jumping Jack Flash got the crowd very wild as did the next one It?s Only Rock ?n? Roll. Third song was Oh No Not You Again, hard and well received.

First surprise of the evening was Let?s Spend The Night Together. And more surprises were to come. We got three new songs on this opening night. Streets Of Love got a very well reception of the audience, the song was used in a commercial here and the crowd went crazy and sang all along. Probably the biggest surprise of the evening was As Tears Go By, but then in the Italian version (Con Le Mie La Crime). Nothing to say, the crowd went mad?

We got Tumbling Dice, a rocking hard Midnight Rambler, the Ray Charles cover Night Time (Is The Right Time)? followed by the band introduction. The two Keith songs were Before They Make Me Run and Slipping Away. And he was in great shape, running around the stage, laughing, and playing well. Then on with Miss You, with the stage moving to the B-Stage. Rough Justice followed, and it was already visible on the setlist at Charlie?s kit. Finally, Under My Thumb was played on the B-Stage.

Back with Honky Tonk Women, Sympathy For The Devil and the rest of the warhorses Start Me Up and Brown Sugar. After the regular show they had to show the Italian goals in the Worldcup Final on the screen, and the crowd went very loud. The encores were You Can?t Always Get What You Want and Satisfaction. The final encore showed the two Italian football players Materazzi and Del Piero on stage. The band went out with huge applause and fireworks. If someone had any doubts about the greatest rock ?n? roll band in the world, they are back and alive and kicking.

Rolling Stones Set Fall North American Stadium Run

The Rolling Stones will return to North American for another leg of their A Bigger Bang tour, which is destined to be the top-grossing trek in history. The second North American leg, which follows a run of European stadiums, will launch on Sept. 20 at Boston's Gillette Stadium. The dates will be sponsored by RadioShack.

The Stones are the top-grossing band in the world for the first half of 2006, with nearly $150 million in grosses and 1.1 million in attendance, according to Billboard Boxscore. A Bigger Bang is expected to ultimately ring up total box office of more than $400 million.

The band will play primarily stadiums in such markets as New York, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas. The run includes such non-traditional tour markets as Halifax, Nova Scotia, Missoula, Mont., Regina, Sask., and Boise, Idaho.

Tour promoter Michael Cohl says ticket prices will be about 10-15% less on the upcoming leg, with an additional $20 discount for students. As-yet-unannounced "young, contemporary opening acts" are promised, according to the band.

An American Express presale begins tomorrow (July 26) for some shows. A limited number of Gold Circle seats will be available, while the remaining 90% of the house will average $89 for stadium shows and $99 for arena gigs.

Additionally, 200 fans will have the opportunity to view each show from onstage, as was the case with the first leg. These seats will also be available at the time of the general public on-sale.

Here are the Rolling Stones' North American tour dates:

Sept. 20: Boston (Gillette Stadium)
Sept. 23: Halifax, Nova Scotia (Halifax Commons)
Sept. 27: East Rutherford, N.J. (Giants Stadium)
Oct. 2: Wichita, Kan. (Cessna Stadium)
Oct. 6: Missoula, Mont. (Grizzly Stadium)
Oct. 8: Regina, Sask. (Mosaic Stadium)
Oct. 11: Chicago (Soldier Field)
Oct. 17: Seattle (Qwest Field)
Oct. 20: El Paso, Texas (Sun Bowl)
Oct. 22: Austin, Texas (Zilker Park)
Oct. 27: Atlantic City, N.J. (Boardwalk Hall)
Nov. 3: Vancouver (BC Place Stadium)
Nov. 5: Oakland, Calif. (McAfee Coliseum)
Nov. 8: Phoenix (Cardinals Stadium)
Nov. 11: Las Vegas (MGM Grand)
Nov. 14: Boise, Idaho (Idaho Center)
Nov. 18: Los Angeles (Dodger Stadium)

Anyone here going to the latest leg of the US tour? I'm trying to hit the Giants Stadium show.

I saw them last October in Philly for the first time (theyre my favorite band of all time) and it was like a (costly) religious experience for me. I was in the second row when they hit the B-stage. Anyway Mick threw some water on us and everything went in slow motion for me. Things were going so slow my thoughts were literally as follows:

"Mick is throwing water on us!"
"The water's coming down!"
"Why is the water taking so long?"
"The water is almost here!"

Then splash...

For the upcoming North American dates, 90% of the ticket inventory will be priced at $89 for the stadium shows and $99 for the arena shows, according to organizers, and a "limited number of Gold Circle seats" will be available as well.

My thoughts more or less exactly. I guess I'll be seeing Kanye West live, and by seeing him live I mean getting wasted in a parking lot of a building Kanye West is playing in at the moment.

I've been raped by ticket brokers before, but you know I can't cry about it, pure capitalism, a system I willingly dive into. Fuck we here are fan(antic)s of a band that had a dope dealer guitarist, and used to steal from girl's purses as Axl fucked them.

Part of the blame lies w/ Ticketmaster who should revamp their often nonsensical ticket pricing system.

Front row Gunner, front row!  8)

I can't believe I did so much better for the Stones than for GN'R.  :no:

Wish you could go man, you're like the only other Stones fan here.

The doors open at 5:30.  Kanye better not be there, I'd rather be getting buzzed in the parking lot.

Review by Mike Farragher
With some of the paint by numbers sets I viewed in Europe that made me yawn and the less than stellar performance I witnessed in Baltimore over the winter on the eve of their Superbowl show, I entered this stadium with very low expectations on my 3rd show this tour/31st overall. Have the Stones ever opened with ?Paint It Black?? They did tonight!!

Who could imagine a set list this good? ?Sway? and ?Sweet Virginia back-to-back was a thrill. Mick was in amazing voice; the break did him good! The boys light the stage on fire with ?Midnight Rambler.? ?Under My Thumb,? as they say in Boston, was a ?wicked pissah.? Amazing! ?Streets of Love,? a song you wouldn?t think would translate well in a stadium, became a crowd pleasing sing-song and one of the night?s highlights.

?Rough Justice sounded great when I saw it in Philly and Baltimore, but it was flubbed on the B-stage. ?Ain?t Too Proud to Beg!? Never heard that one in 25 years of shows! Keith sounded amazing on ?You Got the Silver,? though he relied pretty heavily on the teleprompter. ?Give a hand for the band, they really worked hard on that one,? he said. He had a great rapport with the crowd, who cheered loudly for him. ?I had a rough year. I needed that.? The place went wild. Back to the teleprompter for ?Little T&A.? It was as if a skeleton was doing some Keith karaoke in a Boston bar! It?s been over a decade since I heard T&A live and Keef nailed it! Definitely a top-10 show of all time. Long live the Rolling Stones!!!!

The show I was at. I was freaking the fuck out getting Monkey Man and Sway back to back. Also it was great to get Under My Thumb instead of Miss You (love it but I've heard it enough) as the song for the transition to the B-stage. Great Keith songs too after a couple questionable choices earlier in the tour.

I was at this show!!!!!? ?i know none of you care!!!!? lol.? ?im going to give you my review, whether you like it or not.
im still flying high after seeing these guys, and its been five days since the show.

here it goes, the last time the Stones came to Louisville KY or KY for the matter, was 1989.? 1989, what the fuck?? have the Stones bought into what people say about KY people?? that we are stupid and shit.? i fuckin hate how people almost demonize this state.? why these guys havent been here since 1989 is beyond me.? so, the Stones, a legendary band....and Churchill Downs, a legendary if not the most legendary horse track in the world.? fucking historic.? ?the sad thing is Churchill just was not ready for this show.? close to 50,000 people were at this show, which is how many tickets were sold.? far more come to the KY Derby.? the difference is, on Derby Day the gates are opened very early.? therefor it dosent get as crazy.? the gate opened for the Stones at 4:30.? i got there around 5:30 and it was already crazy.? people everywhere, which of course is to be expected to a certain degree.? but i waited damn near 35 minutes to get to my seat in a line that just seemed to get longer and longer, even as it moved foward.? Churchill Downs just isnt built nor prepared for that many people coming in at the same time.? unlike arenas there arent alot of entrances into the actual venue.? and there arent as many entrances to the seating areas.? and also there were alot of seats on the dirt track and in front of the stage which arent there on Derby Day or any other day.

when I eventually got at the top of this ramp (in this insanly long line where people were literally breathing down your neck and shoving and pushing and all that shit) i felt a sigh of relief, i could finally breath again, i was outdoors.? holy shit i saw the huge stage on the infield.? three stories tall.? i couldnt believe how big this stage was.? eventually i got to my seat, which was on the dirt track.? far, far, far away. :hihi:? ? i felt a few drops of rain hit my head.? of course the weather man said it wasnt supposed to rain.....believe me, i checked.? Alice Cooper opened up, and of course he fuckin rocked.? but as his show went on the rain started to pick up. by the time he was finished a steady rain shower was falling on Churchill.? and it didnt stop, even when the Stones went on, opening with Jumpin Jack Flash.? eventually as the Stones show went on it did quit.?

but....at that moment, when the lights went down and The Stones started.......nothing even mattered.? forget the rain, forget the people who were losing their tempers in the long lines.? nothing mattered anymore.? one of the most surreal moments i have ever been apart of.? one of the biggest chills i have ever gotten, was during Dead Flowers.? there is a line in that song, "Making Bets On Kentucky Derby Day."? when Mick sang that line...the loudest fucking pop you could ever hear in your life erupted.? i know that it had to take everything Mick had not to smile, or laugh or just not mess up the song.? that pop was felt by all of The Stones members, and everyone at that race track.? it went through everyone, and at that moment i felt like close to 50,000 people became one.? unreal.? unreal.?

in their 60's they havent lost anything.? they put on a better show than all of the newer bands could ever hope to play.? i would have loved to have heard Gimme Shelter, or Angie OR....OR the very fitting Wild Horses.? why they didnt play that at Churchill Downs i dont know.? but im not complaining about what i didnt hear.? im not complaining at all.? one of the greatest shows i have ever been to despite Churchill not being set up properly.?

where i was sitting, Mick and the boys were two inches tall.? i paid $100.00 for that ticket.? was it worth it????? it rained ( i got a small cold because of it), peoples tempers flared up, people got separated from their groups.? including a poor six or seven year old little girl i saw.? luckily a Churchill employee was with her and im sure she found her family.? ?very very very long lines everywhere......would i do it again.? ? FUCK YEAH I WOULD!!!!!!!!! :beer: :beer: :beer: :peace:

damn i forgot about all the people on the infield during the derby :hihi:? i only watch the derby every year, i think im losing it. ;D? ? the B stage is cool as hell.? there is this platform on the stage, and of course it just looks like part of the stage itself.? ?the drumset is already fit/screwed down onto it.? when they get ready to do the songs on the B stage Ron, Mick and Keith all get on this platform and it moves foward out into the crowd.? it seemed like at Churchill it went really far into the crowd.? cool as shit : ok: :peace: :beer:

Cool review man, and I really share your enthusiasm.

Allot of people like to dismiss the Stones because they're so old, but when I saw them back in April this year, it was one of the best rock gigs I've ever attended. Every song of theirs is a fuckin classic and they sure know how to work a crowd, for a bunch of 60 year olds!

I'd definitely see them again if they ever toured Australia again. :beer:

Anyone here going to see the Rolling Stones at the Beacon Theater in NYC on Oct 29th or 31st? From the Beacon Website:

"The Rolling Stones play two ultra-exclusive concerts at the Beacon Theater to mark former President Bill Clinton's 60th birthday. Don't miss your once-in-a-lifetime chance to be there. Concerts will be filmed."

Since the concert is being "filmed" - Here's what a source told me...

"And the first few rows will be filled with actors hired for the occasion, folks meeting the right demographic and cosmetic profile."

How lame is that? They want fake fans posing for the cameras in the first few rows?

I know - can you just imagine that right now at some modeling agency in New York there a super-excited agent talking to a room full of young male models:

AGENT -  "Okay guys, were going to send you to see THE STONES!"

BIFF - "I LOVE THE STONES... Will Barney Rubble be there, or just Fred?"

That is sad. But I have a feeling that it happens more often than people think. ?Some tv producers are sleazy.

I'm sure the models know the Rolling Stones. They're not airheads. You'd have to be from another planet not to know the Stones.?

I've thought about this some more.

If this is true (your source), then that's really disgusting.

It's ironic that the true fans who really want to be there and pay lots of money and travel long distance just to be there get short changed. And the fake fans get paid to be there and basically get special treatment. Horrible.

I tend to think so as well.  Why would they try that at this point?  They are a special band.  They put on the biggest show around.  And they give the fans the occasional break... last month they released a bunch of tickets within the first 10 rows of their show in Regina, Saskatchewan... all for $100 ea.  That is an incredible deal... and that tells me that they want to give a break to the casual Joe Blow who wants to see them up close without paying an arm and a leg through scalpers.  I think they respect their fans and a move like hiring paid actors doesn't add up...  :-\

Ok, these lists are way too long.... ?I'll limit myself to the 3 that I've probably enjoyed the most over the years:

Gimme Shelter - I had to be told several times by a friend how great this song was before I really started listening to it; probably my favourite now.

Can't You Hear Me Knocking - Long, but great

Love Is Strong - It may seem like a strange choice, but this was the first Rolling Stones song I ever heard, ?I guess I was about 9 at the time.

An honorable mention goes to Miss You. ?I've just recently started to check out a lot more full albums by the Stones instead of just singles and hits... and I'm loving every second of it. ? : ok:

But I can't just name a bunch os fongs, you know. Preety much everything from Beggars Banquet to Tatoo You is great. Except maybe Black and Blue, which is a weak album, despite having two of my favourite songs: Memory Motel and Hand of Fate

Going out with a bang

 
Peter Birnie, Vancouver Sun
Published: Sunday, November 26, 2006

The Rolling Stones
B.C. Place
Nov. 25

Though the weather outside was frightful, the 51,000 of us packed into B.C. Place stadium couldn't have cared less. The Rolling Stones were playing the last gig of their latest world tour here in Vancouver on a snowy Saturday night, and A Bigger Bang was proving to be just as big and ballsy as any Stones mega-show.

The buzz in the air was not just from all the pot smoke wafting around the stadium. One thought was morbidly inescapable: This could be the last time. These days Mick Jagger finds himself humming that song by his old rivals, "When I'm 64", especially after juggling some show dates around a soar throat. Keith Richards can't keep himself from falling out of tropical trees and landing on his head. Ron Wood took another stab at rehab while on tour. Even before the Vancouver show started, the figures were in: A Bigger Bang is the biggest moneymaker of all time on the touring circuit, raking in $437 million US at 116 shows since August 2005. Surely to God the Stones, who will hit their half-century mark as a band in just a few years, can now retire, rich beyond the dreams of avarice. Right?

Not bloody likely. It's rumoured they'll be back in 2007 to add some more bang to A Bigger Bang, heading for the magical mark of half a billion in revenue. But that's not what keeps bringing the lads back, and especially The Pout That Struts. They love what they're doing. And despite the fact fresher talent has been passing their tour bus in the fast lane for decades, audiences still show up to share a noisy, raunchy love-in with these wildly entertaining stabs from the past.

How sexy is Mick Jagger? At one point mid-concert, as the band was being pulled back to the mainstage on a platform from a mini-show presented about 50 metres away for the folks in the "cheap" seats, Mick pulled up his trademark tight T-shirt and flashed us a torso in such incredible shape that few guys in the audience could match him. Nor could most of the crowd, whether young or the many weighing toward Mick's age, have kept up with his spirited dance moves and trademark gestures selling every song.

Opening acts on this tour have included Kanye West, Van Morrison and Alice Cooper. We got Bonnie Raitt, fresh off her biodiesel bus, and the lovely lady of the long red locks opened the evening with a booming blues set. Frankly, I could listen to the amazing range of her voice and seasoned guitar work without benefit of one watt of amplification. Her dad died not long ago, and Raitt recently told Sun writer Amy O'Brian that the late, great John Raitt, perhaps the best belter Broadway ever heard, is still very much with her. A moving moment came when she thanked Canadian jazz singer Shirley Eikhard "for helpin' me turn my life around" before performing Eikhard's "Something to Talk About," which won the composer a Grammy and the artist a whole lotta new fans.

The Stones opened with Mick in a sparkling silver waistcoat for "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and another oldie, "It's Only Rock 'n Roll." Then the huge video screen behind the band went to black and white for "Oh No, Not You Again" from their new Bigger Bang album. A montage of old Stones videos played through "She Was Hot" from the ''80s album Undercover, then Raitt came back for a great duet with Mick on "Shine a Light" from Exile on Main Street. Nice keyboard work on this by Chuck Leavell.

Keith's first cigarette dangled from his mangled lips as his guitar licks led us to "Streets of Love," also from Bigger Bang. Dancing what might be described as the meth-mouth shuffle, Mick then displayed his handiness with a harmonica to open "Midnight Rambler," well backed by bassist Darryl Jones. But on that old concert favourite "Tumbling Dice," also from Exile, Mr. Jagger made his own musical journey away from the melody line.

Maybe that's because he was about to let Keith loose with the great grizzleface's own unique vocal skills. After introducing the band (a sign in the crowd begged Wood: Ronnie Be Good), Jagger turned things over to Richards and the crowd went nuts. Smoking fiercely, Keith waited patiently for the roar to die down, made a quick quip about brain damage from his climbing accident, then launched into a trilogy of his classics: "You Got the Silver" from Let It Bleed, "Slipping Away" from Voodoo Lounge and "Connection" from Between the Buttons. By classics, I of course mean Richards' trademark rambling, badly off-key renderings that are just as much fun for him as us. As Ron Wood laid out the guitar riffs on "You Got the Silver" and Richards wrapped himself around his partner in a long black coat, it looked for all the world like a panhandler assaulting a busker on Granville Street.

Mick returned in a bright red baseball jacket for "Miss You," the switch to a head mike signalling that the band was heading out on its little trolley ride to the "B" stage. They travelled to "Miss You" and performed "Get Off Of My Cloud" (again with Mick choosing a whole new key) and "Start Me Up" on their mini-tour before returning to the mainstage with "Honky Tonk Woman." The infamous inflatable lips got only a brief workout here before being deflated; no such finish for Mick's big smackers as he launched into "Sympathy For the Devil."

To this point I was only whelmed by the set and its light show, which was sufficiently gigantic without dazzling me. But they got clever as Charlie Watts led off with a new beat to open the classic and Mick (sorry, Sir Mick) ascended to an upper platform in a feathery red jacket and hat. Here were the bells and whistles of any good arena rock event: enormous images in red of a snakeskin-meets-Rorschach pattern sure to freak out anyone on the wrong drugs. Gigantic gas jets shooting up, lighting and heating us instantly. Jagger playing it all over the stage and right out to the wings, then coming back to receive solid accompaniment from backup singers Lisa Fischer and Bernard Fowler.

We were pumped. "Paint It Black" -- awright! Then "Brown Sugar," with a wall of flames across the front of the stage, Mick going "yeah yeah yeah" and all of us right on cue for "Woo!"

More! Encore! Oh ? it's "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

We take the hint and head out into the slushy streets. We got what we need.

I don't wanna say they should quit touring, but it's becoming a bit depressing to watch them nowadays. I was watching Altamont recently and it's just amazing how phenomenal Mick was on stage, as well as the rest of them, nowadays it's just kinda... Okay, you know. I was watching the Rio show and they put on a great show but it's not that band anymore, it just isn't.

I remember now why I was so, so, so disappointed with the Calgary show (I had front row, too), it's because the band's tight and all, but it's more of a spectacle now than a band.

I recently saw Aerosmith live, and in that short set of theirs, they just tore the goddamn roof off the place. Mick just walks around the stage nowadays, occasionally providing the obligatory strut or whatever. Keef seems really tired most of the time, although his solos are really good still (unlike Ronnie's, which have gotten so sloppy over time). Steven Tyler was just a madman (granted he's 5 years younger than Mick), running all over the place, high fiving the crowd, utilising the crowd as characters, etc. You know, just being really cool and spontaneous. Joe Perry just ran around the stage pulling off the most incredible blues virtuosity.

That energy is missing from the Stones today. I don't know if The Bigger Bang tour was their last or not, but I hope it was. When a band seems like old men on stage, it's time to quit.

I'd just rather go to a Jagger or Keef or even Ronnie Wood solo gig than see the band in the state they are now.

See, here's what I'm talking about:

Notice when an audience member throws that bottle to Steve, he looks mad for a second then look what he does, totally spontaneously! It's amazing. Jagger just hasn't got that anymore.

I saw the Stones a few years ago in the UK.. I would've enjoyed it more if the tickets didn't cost so much. No band should charge that much (I saw Floyd for half the price of the stones and, by damn, talk about value for money for the stage show alone.)

Cool picts, cool reviews. I have never seen the Stones, but I have a lot of their DVDs, most recently 3.14.06. Even though the guys have aged, they are in great shape and the music is still great, timeless. If  only their ticket prices were not so damn expensive!! Last time they came to my town the best seats were $400. For 2 that is $800, plus service fee, plus parking, plus beer, food, t-shirt, and all the rest. Easily $1000 for the night. That is a lot of money. But the Stones  still have  it, in my opinion.

LONDON, England (AP) -- Little known musician Chris Jagger had been saying for years that his famous brother Mick would one day join him on stage. When it finally happened, the audience numbered about 40.

Grainy footage of the gig late last month at the Bull's Head, a riverside pub in southwest London, was available on YouTube, posted by someone who captured the event on a cell phone.

The Rolling Stones kicked off a European tour in Belgium this week and will be headlining at the Isle of Wight music festival on Sunday.

Mick Jagger, 63, had been visiting his former wife Jerry and their children in nearby Richmond when he slipped into the pub wearing a purple jumper and joined Chris's Atcha! blues band.

In the impromptu performance, Chris, 59, plays guitar, and the brothers use a single microphone to sing "Dead Flowers," a track from the Stones' "Sticky Fingers" album.

Chris told the Daily Mail newspaper that he persuaded his brother during a break in the Atcha! show to take to the stage.

"At first he didn't really want to do it, but I said to him: 'You've got a tour coming up. I think you need the practice'," Chris said.

I'm a little disappointed that they included the Rio show, since it was broadcast everywhere and just about everyone has seen it.

MADRID, Spain (AP) -- Two workers dismantling a Rolling Stones' stage at a stadium in Madrid fell to their deaths from a metal scaffold on Friday, officials said.

Two other Spanish workers were injured in the accident at the Vicente Calderon stadium, one critically. Police said three of the workers fell about 30 feet from the scaffold, and landed on the fourth worker.

The Rolling Stones, currently on the European leg of their A Bigger Bang world tour, performed in the Vicente Calderon soccer stadium in the Spanish capital Thursday night. They are due to play in the soutern town of El Eijido this weekend.

The dead workers were indentified as Benno Goldewijk, 44, of the Netherlands, and Alfredo Pecina Matias, 38, of Spain, said Javier Ayuso, a spokesman for Madrid's emergency rescue service said.

Rumor has it that the current "Bigger Bang" tour will be the last one for the Stones. It's expected the boys will make the announcement this Sunday when they wrap up 2 years of constant tour. Insiders say the reason for packing it in is the guys age. Should they decide to tour again they would all be in their late 60's and apparently this is something they're not interested in doing.

I dont like the sounds of this and I pray it isnt true

Keith Richards demands apology

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has demanded an apology from Swedish newspapers for their scathing reviews of the group's performance in the country earlier this month.

Tabloids Expressen and Aftonbladet gave thumbs down to the Aug. 3 concert at Ullevi stadium in Goteborg, with Expressen suggesting Richards was "superdrunk" on stage.

"This is a first!" the 63-year-old rock star wrote in a letter published by Stockholm daily Dagens Nyheter. "Never before have I risen to the bait of a bad review.

"But this time ... I have to stand up ... for our fans all over Sweden ... to say that you owe them, and us, an apology."

Dagens Nyheter said it received the letter from concert organizer EMA Telstar. Company head Thomas Johansson told The Associated Press Richards wrote the letter and gave it to him after reading translations of the Swedish reviews.

"There were 56,000 people in Ullevi stadium who bought a ticket to our concert - and experienced a completely different show than the one you 'reviewed,"' the letter said.

"How dare you cheapen the experience for them - and for the hundreds of thousands of other people across Sweden who weren't at Ullevi and have only your 'review' to go on.

"Write the truth. It was a good show."

In his review, Aftonbladet's music writer Markus Larsson gave the concert a score of two on a five-point scale, and said Richards appeared "a bit confused."

"I am not going to apologize for my subjective opinion," Larsson told the paper's web edition on Wednesday. "It is Keith who should apologize. After all it costs around 1,000 kronor (US$145) to see a rock star who can hardly handle the (guitar) riff to 'Brown Sugar' any more."

The Stones will keep touring next year.

Let it bleed and sticky fingers. Those 2, along with BB, are the stones big three. I don't know if any 3 album output by any artist (besides GnR) could match up to those. I love the stones but nothing they ever did came anywhere near being as amazing as those 3 albums. And all 3 can be listened to from start to finish without wanting to skip a second.

They're different styles, same amazing era of songwriting for them tho.

Exile on Main Street.

Exile actually has some of my favorite stones songs ever on it, "rocks off" being my favorite stones songs ever. However overall it's not as solid to me as the other 3. I think the original post said something about listening to BB straight through, I always skip tracks on EOMS.

The stones are one of my favorite bands ever but I gotta disagree with you. The eighties were rough for them, besides Tattoo You which was mostly recorded in the 70's. Only song of theirs from the 80's I really love is "She's so Cold". They came back strong with Voodoo lounge tho, and A bigger Bang is amazing.

Greatest span was the Mick Taylor years, but I love all of the stones' eras!!!!  Let It Bleed was awesome as well.  and Get Yer Ya Ya's was fucking brilliant and that when Mick Taylor made his mark.  The stones during Sticky Fingers were only a notch below Led Zep from being a hard rock band.  Yes, it was rock, but you could tell they were close to being on another level they had never been too.  Mick's voice was just awesome and way Keith and Mick played with each other was awesome.  "Can't you hear me knockin" WOW!!

BBC: Hell's Angels sought to kill Jagger

03/02/2008 6:00 PM, AP


Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger escaped an assassination plot hatched in 1969 by the Hells Angels, a new British Broadcasting Corp. documentary has claimed.

A program to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Monday says the rock star was the target of the plot following a purported dispute with the motorcycle gang over concert security.

 Jagger had vowed not to use Hells Angel members as bouncers following the death in December 1969 of an 18-year-old fan at a notorious free performance at Altamont Speedway in Northern California.

In return, gang members hatched a plan to kill Jagger at his holiday home in Long Island, New York, the BBC claimed.

"The Hells Angels were so angered by Jagger's treatment of them that they decided to kill him," Tom Mangold, the presenter of the program, was quoted as telling Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper.

He said the plan was disclosed during an interview with Mark Young, a former FBI officer, for the BBC's "The FBI at 100" documentary.

Mangold said the men tried to reach Jagger by sea. "The boat was hit by a storm and all of the men were thrown overboard," he was quoted as saying. They all survived but made no other attempt on his life, Mangold said.

It was not clear whether Jagger was ever informed of the alleged plot against him.

LD Communications, Jagger's publicists in Britain, did not immediately return calls requesting comment.

The Hells Angels have always denied any connection with the Altamont Speedway killing.

LONDON, England (AP) -- Ronnie Wood entered a rehabilitation facility Wednesday for help with alcoholism, said a spokeswoman for the Rolling Stones guitarist.

 "Following Ronnie's continued battle with alcohol he has entered a period of rehab," the spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity as required by her agency. "His close family and friends say he is seeking help and look forward to his recovery."

Wood, 61, has fought a long battle with alcoholism during his rock 'n' roll career, which started in the 1960s when he played with the band The Faces.

His spokeswoman didn't release any details about the treatment he will receive or the clinic that he entered.

The craggy guitarist had seemed to be in good health in recent years. He has developed a strong second career as an artist, selling his paintings at some of London's respected art galleries.

But he has been the focus of feverish recent newspaper reports about his resuming drinking.

Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger becomes a pensioner

Sir Mick Jagger has officially become an Old Age Pensioner.

The Rolling Stones' frontman celebrated his 65th birthday at the weekend (July 26), meaning under British law he is now entitled to a raft of benefits as a senior citizen.

The singer ? said to be worth in the region of ?230 million ? is eligible to claim ?87 a week from the state.

He also qualifies for a bus pass and other discounts.

Jagger has yet to comment on how his new status will affect him, but with a film production company alongside his activities with The Rolling Stones retirement seems some way off still.

http://www.nme.com/news/the-rolling-stones/38475

Happy Birthday to Mick, can't believe he's 65....actually i can! Don't think we'll see him on a bus around the town anytime soon though!

Get Yer Ya Ya's out is a must, its live and Mick Taylor is on lead guitar.

Mick Taylor era 1969-1975 was their finest era and their most hard rocking.  He helped on Let it Bleed on some songs.

Get Yer Ya Ya's Out
Sticky Fingers
Exile on Main Street
Goats Head Soup (Heart Breaker, 100 years, Long Cold winter, Awesome songs with   guitar playing that inspired Slash)

An upcoming book focusing on the gospel according to Keith Richards will be released this spring called, What Would Keith Richards Do? Daily Affirmations From A Rock 'n' Roll Survivor. Louisville's Courier-Journal reported that author Jessica Pallington West has compiled some of the Rolling Stones guitarist's greatest quips about music, life and the law including such legendary "Keith-isms" as "I would rather be a legend than a dead legend" and "I've never had a problem with drugs -- only with policemen." What Would Keith Richards Do? is set for publication in May.


The Stones are currently taking a much deserved break after the 2005-2007 A Bigger Bang world tour, which grossed the band over half-a-billion dollars. Richards says that it's not so unthinkable that the Stones will keep performing until they die: "That has always been my point. Ain't nobody that complained that Duke Ellington or Count Basie and said, 'Why are you still doing it?' They did it all their lives. What is it -- because I'm white and I play rock 'n' roll? You know what I mean? Otherwise, I'm just doing what all other guys who I follow -- you know Muddy (Waters), Howlin' Wolf. You do what you do until you drop. You know, you rock 'til you drop."

Rocker Ronnie Wood arrested for possible assault

By GREGORY KATZ (AP) ? 2 hours ago

LONDON ? Aging rocker Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones was released on bail Thursday after being arrested for possible domestic assault.

Wood, known for his stinging guitar riffs and raucous private life, was picked up by police Wednesday evening near his home in Esher in southern England.

"I can confirm that there was an incident last night and that Ronnie Wood was arrested," said David Rigg, Wood's spokesman.

The arrest comes on the heels of Wood's highly publicized divorce last month. His marriage collapsed after he started dating a young Russian woman.

Police in Surrey, England, released few details about the incident, which is still under investigation. Police would not say who made the assault complaint against Wood.

Asked about Wood, police said only that a 62-year-old man from the town of Esher had been taken into custody Wednesday night on suspicion of assault in connection with a domestic incident on Claygate High Street.

Claygate High Street is a popular commercial street near Esher, an affluent town 17 miles (28 kilometers) southwest of London that was also the home of George Harrison of the Beatles.

Locals Thursday were trying to find out what happened with Wood, one of several famous rockers from the 1960s who live in the area.

Teresa Asoli, owner of the Il Corallo restaurant, said few of the facts have come out.

"Some people came around and wanted to know what we saw," she said. "But I wasn't here when it happened so I didn't see anything."

Wood spent Wednesday night in police custody before being released on bail to face further inquiries in January.

Wood's private life has been in turmoil for more than an a year since he started a high profile relationship with Russian Ekaterina Ivanova, a 20-year-old cocktail waitress.

That relationship led to his divorce last month by Jo Wood, his wife of 24 years, on the grounds of adultery.

He and Wood have two children together.

Wood has long been a guitar stalwart of the Rolling Stones, one of the world's longest-running and most popular rock bands. He joined the band in 1975 and has spent more than three decades touring the world with the band, one of the most successful live acts in history.

According to Forbes, the band recently earned about $88 million in one 12-month stretch.

In recent years he has also found some success as an artist, selling his paintings in numerous galleries.

His romantic troubles have provided ample fodder for Britain's tabloids, who have shown repeated photographs of the craggy, aging rocker cavorting with his young Russian paramour.

He also was treated for alcoholism in 2008.

Although I've already got Exile... on CD, I was thinking about getting the reissue for all the bonus stuff. But I read that on some of the unreleased stuff, they've overdubbed some vocals and guitar. I know it probably doesn't make a dramatic difference, but that kinda spoils it a little bit to me. It's like when bands overdub stuff on live albums, sort of defeats the purpose.... :-\

Richards miffed at Stones delay


Keith Richards is fed up with Mick Jagger stalling the next Rolling Stones album - he wants the band to record new songs as soon as possible.

The rockers recently re-released their landmark early 1970s album Exile On Main Street, but Richards is fed up with the frontman putting off plans to work on new tracks.

The guitarist is itching to get back into the studio and is desperately trying to find out when Jagger is likely to want to reunite.

He says, "I'm trying to find out when it will happen myself. I sent a note to (drummer) Charlie Watts saying, 'Should I put an ad in a music magazine - guitar player for hire?' I've got to do something.

"It doesn't matter which band, you have got to have the frontman wanting to do it. You can't shove the lead singer into it. I learned that many years ago. I usually wait for Mick to call me. When he does, it's because he's got an itch and wants to go to work."

Keith Richards: Rolling Stones Ready to Tour, Record New Material

While promoting the release of his new autobiography, "Life," Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards revealed that the band plans to begin recording new material in the coming months and hit the road next year. In a radio interview with BBC 6 Music, Richards said that more Rolling Stones reissues are likely to come, but that the band is focusing on combating rumors that their most recent world tour was their last. "There are gems in the vault, but more interesting to me is that everybody's ready to go out there again," says Richards. "Who said it should stop and who said when? That's what we want to find out. We'll know when it really comes to an end, with a crashing halt."

While Richards expects the Rolling Stones to tour in 2011, he says that the group may hit the studio before that. "After these many years working together, we have a lot of unfinished stuff to work on that we had to leave off the last album," says Richards. "And knowing Mick, as I do, he's a very prolific writer. And I have ideas, and we'll put them together in December or January, something like that... We're looking forward to working."

 

During the interview, the 66-year-old guitarist also talked about "Life," his memoir released last week in which he discusses his past drug addiction and calls Stones singer Mick Jagger " unbearable." "Mick's read it... [he's been] a little bitchy, here and there," Richards says with a laugh. "Most of those stories are 30, 40 years old. Maybe it's just rehashing it, but I had to tell these stories in order to put everything into context... Mick and I couldn't insult each other if we tried."

Hell yeah. Mick Taylor era Stones is about as good as it gets!

Great show.

Not a video, but Brussels Affair '73 is one of my favorite bootlegs. Taylor rips throughout the entire show.
Damn shame he left.

Great jam.
I like Keep Up Blues, and their cover of Hank Williams You Win Again as well.

They also officially released one of the Live At Brussels shows I mention above at http://www.StonesArchive.com/

They actually played two shows in one day. I prefer the show that wasn't released officially, but they are both great.
I'm hoping they keep emptying the vaults. The Exile re-release had some great stuff too.

Stones Near Decision on 50th Anniversary Shows
Tour could be the biggest of all time ? but do Mick and Keith want to do it?

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards will meet in December to decide how the Rolling Stones will celebrate next year's 50th anniversary, according to a top tour-industry source. "I don't see why in the world the Stones can't put together some kind of show next year," says Richards. "I'd almost count on it. It doesn't have to be the whole spectacle bullshit again, but we've got to find our own way through this."

"It is quite amazing when you think about it," Jagger adds. "Anything's possible."

A top source tells Rolling Stone that AEG Live, Live Nation and veteran Stones promoter Michael Cohl have already reached out about acquiring the band's anniversary tour, which has the potential to be the biggest of all time. "It would be a total home run," says the source.

The rock world is paying attention: "The Stones are iconic figures in Western society," says Sting. "I hope they'll stop bickering. I'd like to see them doing what they do." Adds Joe Perry, "I would love to see them just go and do arenas and have it be as stripped-down as possible, the way they did on the Exile tour ? where they had the horn section and Ian Stewart playing keyboards. As close as they could get to that would be great."

Following a band meeting in September at the Stones' London office, Richards, guitarist Ronnie Wood and drummer Charlie Watts were set to convene in November to jam in London. "I would suggest a lot of blues in the beginning," says Richards. "That's where the band's roots are. We'll start playing some Jimmy Reed stuff and some Muddy Waters stuff and then things will blossom from there. It might bore Mick to death ? and that's the idea. We're just going to go, and you start from Day One. You've got the drums and a couple of guitars and you start hammering away.

"Mick is welcome," Richards adds. "I'm sure he'll turn up."

Richards' nasty, gossip-packed 2010 memoir, Life, painted an unrelentingly negative portrait of Jagger and his contributions to the Stones ? straining the duo's relationship. "I think there's a healing process waiting to take place," Wood says. "I think it's happening now as we speak, but it has to be resolved. Something has to be resolved there. They have to come to terms with going on a working basis, which Charlie and I will help make happen. Wish me luck."

"That old healing process," says Stones saxophone player Bobby Keys with a laugh. "Boy, that is an ongoing process. But last time I was onstage with them, there was no blood lost. They always seem to work it out." Adds longtime friend Peter Wolf, "If one looks at the history of great collaborations, Gilbert and Sullivan didn't always have a good time at it, either. But once they choose to get together to work, that is usually the great healer."

Richards says he's up for another massive world stadium and arena run like 2005's Bigger Bang tour, but isn't sure Jagger wants to make such a large commitment. "I don't know about that," Richards says. "I don't think Mick would. We'd like to be ready to be able to do it if the idea starts to happen. I'd even invite Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor back in. Why not? It's 50 years. Everyone deserves a party."

Adds Jagger, "That'd be very complete if it all happened." Taylor and Wyman have both worked with the Stones recently: Taylor, who left the band in 1974 to pursue a solo career, contributed new guitar work on last year's Exile on Main St. box set, and Wyman, who departed in 1992, plays bass on a cover of Bob Dylan's "Watching the River Flow" that the band recorded for a 2011 tribute album to late keyboard player Ian Stewart. "I've been reading about the possibilities in the press, but Keith hasn't turned his lips in my direction yet," says Wyman. "Let's see what transpires over the next few weeks, and I can then make a serious decision. I've got my chops together, and I know that my mate Charlie has ? so let's see if it ever happens."

One option some insiders floated has the band camping out for multinight runs in major cities. "I think the idea of doing multiple shows in certain cities ? New York, L.A., maybe Chicago, maybe Atlanta ? would be wonderful," says longtime keyboardist Chuck Leavell. Bobby Keys agrees: "In my fantasy of Rolling Stones gigs, I would like to see a gig that's centralized in one place: Let the people come to us instead of making all that traveling. That's always the main thing that bothers me about going on the road. It didn't used to, but hell, now we're all in our late sixties and shit, and it's just kind of a pain in the ass."

For its 40th anniversary in 2002, the band launched the massive Licks Tour, playing stadiums, arenas and small venues (sometimes all in the same city) and releasing a career retrospective with new songs. But this time around, there is no sign of new material. "I'm not writing for them right now," says Richards, who has been working on a solo project "reminiscent of early Chess records." "I'm cutting my own stuff with [producer and drummer] Steve Jordan," he says. "There's no point in writing for the Stones until I know that Mick Jagger's in. He could have every song I've ever written. They're all for him. If he doesn't like them ? or if he poo-poos them ? I take them somewhere else." Adds Wood, "I think we have so much back catalog that we would go out without new material, but then again one of the boys might go, 'No, I wouldn't dream of going out unless we have new material. I don't mind, really.'"

The band last played live together in August 2007 at London's O2 Arena, wrapping the two-year, $558 million Bigger Bang tour. "We were riding the top of the wave," says Wood. "I didn't want it to end." Since then, the Stones have been unusually busy: Jagger released an album with reggae-soul supergroup SuperHeavy; Richards published the bestselling Life; Watts toured with his longtime jazz group; and Wood released a solo album, exhibited paintings and hosted a U.K. classic-rock radio show. In between, the group went back into the studio to add new parts to outtakes included with the stellar Exile and Some Girls reissues.

For Jagger, probably the least-nostalgic Stone, the looming anniversary has him reflecting on just how far the band has come. "It's a very different group than the one that played 50 years ago," he says. "When I think about it, one part of me goes, 'We're slightly cheating,' because it's not the same band ? still the same name, but it's only Keith and myself that are the same people, I think. I've tried to find out when Charlie's first gig was [but can't]. But it's an amazing achievement. It's fantastic and I'm very proud of it."

and The Beatles don't have "so many classic albums"? ???

Rubber Soul - Rubber Soul was successful commercially and critically, and is often cited as one of the greatest albums in music history. In 2012, Rubber Soul was voted 5th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time."

The album was commercially successful, beginning a 42-week run in the British charts on 11 December 1965. On Christmas Day it replaced Help!?The Beatles' previous album?at the top of the charts, a position Rubber Soul held for eight weeks. On 9 May 1987, Rubber Soul returned to the album charts for three weeks, and ten years later made another comeback to the charts.

Revolver - It reached number one on both the British chart and American chart and stayed at the top spot for seven weeks and six weeks, respectively. Placed at number 1 in the All-Time Top 1000 Albums and number 3 in the Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, the album is often regarded as one of the greatest achievements in music history and one of The Beatles' greatest studio achievements.

In 1997, it was named the third greatest album of all time in a Music of the Millennium poll conducted in the United Kingdom by HMV Group, Channel 4, The Guardian and Classic FM.

In 2000, Q magazine placed it at number 1 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. The same magazine's readers placed it at number 4 of greatest albums of all time in 2006.

In 2001, the TV network VH1 named it the number 1 greatest album of all time, a position it also achieved in the Virgin All Time Top 1,000 Albums.

In 2002, the readers of Rolling Stone ranked the album the greatest of all time.

In 2006, the album was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 best albums of all time.

In 2006, Guitar World readers chose it as the 10th best guitar album of all time.

In 2007, a PopMatters review described the album's content ? "the individual members of the greatest band in the history of pop music peaking at the exact same time."

In 2010, Revolver was named as the best pop album of all time by the official newspaper of the Holy See, L'Osservatore Romano.

In 2012, Revolver was voted 3rd on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". It placed behind only the Beatles' own Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.

Revolver currently holds the number 3 spot on Rate Your Music's top 1000 albums chart.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Sgt. Pepper was a worldwide critical and commercial success, spending a total of 27 weeks at the top of the UK Album Chart and 15 weeks at number one on the US Billboard 200. A defining album in the emerging psychedelic rock style, the album was critically acclaimed upon release and won four Grammy Awards in 1968. It frequently ranks at or near the top of published lists of the greatest albums of all time. In 1994, it was ranked number one in the book All Time Top 1000 Albums. In 2003, and again in 2012, the album was placed at number one on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time". Sgt. Pepper is one of the world's best selling albums; 32 million copies have been shipped.

The White Album - The album has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, and was listed at number 10 on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list. Previously in 1987, as part of their 20th anniversary, Rolling Stone ranked it #9 on "The 100 Best Albums of the Last Twenty Years."

Abbey Road - In 2012, Abbey Road was voted 14th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time."

Even the cover art for these 5 albums is world recognizable and beyond question some of the best album covers in all of Rock, whereas beyond Sticky Fingers I really can't think of too many album covers by The Stones that stick out as legendary.

There's no denying The Beatles have some classic albums. I just thing think the stones have more though. Beggars Banquet, Let it bleed, Sticky fingers, Exile on Main Street, Goats Head Soup, Some Girls, Its only Rock N' Roll, Black and Blue. All great albums. Can the Beatles albums that were critically and commercially successful top those? I'm not sure.

So after 50 years together The Stones have managed to release 8 truly classic albums? :P The 5 I mentioned were released over 4 year span and only include my favorites and not A Hard Day's Night, Help!, Magical Mystery Tour, or Let It Be which I'm sure have also been argued as being "classics."

Find me another band that's released that many great albums. Sure the stones probably have more classic albums but they have been around a lot longer obviously. Could the beatles had more if they stayed together? Absolutely, but you can't hold their longevity against them giving them more time to produce classic albums. Just for me personally though, i think the stones are the best ever. Nothing against the beatles. They were great too. Arguing this is pretty pointless though. Someone will always think one is better then the other since its totally a subjective thing.

I totally understand the Beatles importance/influence on popular music, but they are pretty far down the list when I think of rock n' roll.
When I think of rock n' roll, I think Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard etc.

When I think of pop music, I think Beatles. They are closer to the last band that comes to mind when I think of rock n' roll.

I do appreciate the fact that the Beatles success opened the door a bit as far as the US market, for the greatest rock n' roll band of all time to come crashing through..
Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones.

The whole Rolling Stones vs. Beatles thing was stupid back then, and it's even more stupid nowadays. I'm not a fan of The Beatles at all, and still think it's a stupid argument as they are both completely different bands. It's like debating between Guns N' Roses or Duran Duran.

Anyway, to the person who mocked them from releasing "8 great albums in 50 years", you've got to take into consideration that this was in a ten year period (from 1968-1978).  Releasing 8 great albums in 10 years is a huge achievement. Especially when at least four of those (each album from 'Beggars Banquet' to 'Exile On Main Street') are considered to be some of the greatest albums in the history of music (not just rock 'n' roll), and even the remaining four that aren't without fail mentioned in those conversations have their fans. And of the songs from that period, they are still able to find great unused material to be released with recent reissues (Plundered My Soul from the 2010 Exile On Main Street reissue is the sort of brilliance that most bands don't wait nearly 40 years to release).

Not to mention that there are also individual tracks from the five years previous to 1968 that are among some of the best ever recorded (either from otherwise inconsistent early albums, or non-album tracks that were released as singles), and most of their albums since 'Some Girls' having at least one track that stands out and can live up to their most memorable tracks if not actually surpass them (there have been some notable exceptions, of course - 'Voodoo Lounge' and 'Bridges To Babylon' were both absolutely awful).

Also, take into consideration that for any band, regardless of how long they've been around, having just one of your albums consistently being hailed as one of the best ever is a massive achievement. Having four is a massive deal that few other bands have achieved (I think only The Beatles and Led Zeppelin have the same sort of representation in these conversations. There may be a couple more, but the number is definitely in single figures).

It's a shame that since the 80's their quality has dropped off dramatically, but you can't deny them that inspired ten years that produced music that is pretty much the standard that all rock 'n' roll since has been judged by. And I don't think any band could last 50 years without releasing some crap... not even the beloved Beatles.

I attribute the drop off in quality to personnel more than anything. Losing Mick Taylor closed a lot of doors for them.
Granted they weren't putting out "Exile" caliber material when he left, but (who is/has?) Goats Head Soup and It's Only Rock n' Roll were still pretty great.
Jagger was still writing inspired lyrics, and musically they were expanding without pushing it too far.

I love Ronnie Wood with the Jeff Beck Group and the Faces. I think Faces is the most underrated rock n' roll band out there. They were like the Rolling Stones Jr.
Unfortunately, Wood is just Richard's yes man in the Stones. Wood is a much better guitarist than he has shown, but Taylor was the perfect fit, and wasn't willing to go through the motions as Wood has been doing since 1975. Jagger still has his voice, and the ability to write good lyrics, but doesn't have anyone to push and inspire, while also keeping him in check. Stones have been playing it safe for so long. Plundered My Soul was a return to form, and it's no coincidence that Taylor is all over it.

Match ups like Jagger/Richards/Taylor, Plant/Page, Axl/Slash/Izzy etc don't come around very often.
Can't break em up and expect to have that chemistry with replacements.

And during that 10 year period did they once totally reinvent their sound or release a game-changing record like Sgt. Pepper which was completely unlike anything before it altering the face of popular music? Were there any ultra experimental tracks like John's "Tomorrow Never Knows"? The most experimental thing I can recall about The Stones was a Gawd awful foray into disco.

If that 10 year period was so magical then why didn't it spark Stonesmania akin to Beatlesmania (commonly argued to be the biggest cultural phenomenon ever)? Why do some of the top academic institutions in the world offer courses on The
Beatles from both a musical and cultural theory perspective if this 10 year period was so awe-inspiring?

Why do I see people wearing Beatles shirts every single day but have maybe seen a half a dozen Stones shirts in my entire existence?

Were The Stones technologically innovative with regard to the recording process to the point of pushing the technological limitations of their time, and in doing so alter how music could be recorded?

If so talented then why are their solo albums notoriously horrid while Paul's early solo work was enormously successful and John's is routinely cited as some of the finest music ever, if not on par or exceeding that of The Beatles?

If that 10 year period was so magical then why didn't it spark Stonesmania akin to Beatlesmania (commonly argued to be the biggest cultural phenomenon ever)? Why do some of the top academic institutions in the world offer courses on The
Beatles from both a musical and cultural theory perspective if this 10 year period was so awe-inspiring?

Why do I see people wearing Beatles shirts every single day but have maybe seen a half a dozen Stones shirts in my entire existence?

Were The Stones technologically innovative with regard to the recording process to the point of pushing the technological limitations of their time, and in doing so alter how music could be recorded?

If so talented then why are their solo albums notoriously horrid while Paul's early solo work was enormously successful and John's is routinely cited as some of the finest music ever, if not on par or exceeding that of The Beatles?


Why does a band need to reinvent it's sound?

They are a rock n' roll band. That said they were hardly one dimensional.
They touched on blues, country, gospel, soul..

You're kidding with the Stonesmania question, right?
You've only seen a half dozen Stones shirts?

Are you counting Slash, who practically made the tongue logo famous?

I've seen more Katy Perry shirts than Beatles and Stones combined, so maybe she should be in this discussion.

Look up how the Stones went about recording Exile on Main Street, then ask yourself if you think they were really interested in "pushing the technological limitations of their time".
They were interested in making rock n' roll music, and they did so better than anyone else has done before or since.

Unlike the Beatles, the Stones could take their show on the road, and have the reputation of being one of the better live bands around.

No doubt the stuff with Taylor in the band was classic. Everything he's on is some of the best music ever. Pretty much anything they released from the late 60s to late 70s is classic. He also made them better live. Listen to bootlegs from when Taylor was in the band. Those shows were fantastic.

No "experimental" tracks, which usually translates to "unlistenable noise". I'd rather hear a song than someone repeating the words "number nine" for ten minutes...

But if you think 'Some Girls' sounds anything like anything they'd done previously, I'm not sure I can do anything for you. ;)

Seeing as you're insisting on making the stupid comparison to The Beatles, I am of the belief that the only reason The Beatles get so much credit is because people have been forced to believe that's what they're supposed to think.

I think even some of their early 60s and early 80s work is really good. Some of those songs are great. Not on par with their late 60s to late 70s work but some really great songs. I really liked the Steel Wheels album. That's the album that got me into them when i was 12 years old. One of my all time favorite songs is on 1967's Between The Buttons, Ruby Tuesday.

Why does a band need to reinvent it's sound?

I never said they did but bands that reinvent or experiment with their sound tend to be more interesting than those that don't. After all, aren't a lot of us attracted to Guns N' Roses and here because of their artistic growth and experimentation from Appetite for Destruction to Use Your Illusion to Chinese Democracy?

They are a rock n' roll band. That said they were hardly one dimensional.
They touched on blues, country, gospel, soul..

The Beatles touched on Pop, Rock, Metal, Industrial, Psychedelic, Rockabilly, Classical, etc..

You're kidding with the Stonesmania question, right?

No, so why not answer it?

I've seen more Katy Perry shirts than Beatles and Stones combined, so maybe she should be in this discussion.

I was primarily talking about folks from the Rock N' Roll crowd. I'm in the process of going to teachers college, and most girls I've been around seem more into fashion brands like American Eagle or Aeropostle than band/artist shirts, but if you say so.

They were interested in making rock n' roll music, and they did so better than anyone else has done before or since.

That's your opinion which you're entitled to just as I am mine. Yet on the other hand, many critics and music scholars have attested to Lennon and McCartney being the greatest composers since Schubert, so even if you're correct about The Stones being superior in the Rock department, when it comes to the larger actual task of songwriting and composing, they're really not that highly regarded.

Unlike the Beatles, the Stones could take their show on the road, and have the reputation of being one of the better live bands around.

Have you ever seen a Beatles concert? It's pretty apparent why they felt they could no longer take their music on the road. They couldn't even hear themselves play, much less think. Every single show was complete and utter anarchy with fans mobbing them.

What did they do instead? They stuck to the studio and honed/mastered their craft. Would you have preferred them take a page from The Stones' book and release endless redundant greatest hits packages or $50 tongue bumper stickers while not touring?

That's cool you get so much out of their lives shows. I'd easily put Guns N' Roses, Prince, The Who, or Rush ahead of The Stones as one of the better live bands around. When I saw them it was even more farcical than Bon Jovi (do I really need to see ladies as old as my grandmother throwing their panties at the band? :nervous:).

No "experimental" tracks, which usually translates to "unlistenable noise". I'd rather hear a song than someone repeating the words "number nine" for ten minutes...

I'm not crazy about that track either. By experimental I meant tracks like "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," or, like I suggested earlier, "Tomorrow Never Knows." If you watch Mad Men you're probably familiar with the track.

Ok here goes, and im fully expecting to be destroyed for this but I'll say it anyway.  The Rolling Stones are a great band, no doubt, and as far as longevity they are the greatest of all time.  But I wouldn't go as far as to say they did Rock N Roll better than anyone before or after them.  I think Elvis Presley would have something to say about that before business, and as for after I think there have been bands who at times were better than the Rolling Stones.  Right off the top of my head I think Guns N Roses, Queen and Aerosmith are better than the Stones.  I know there are a fair amount of people who also think Led Zeppelin were better.  Since 1980 the Stones have put out a lot of not so great music.  Don't get me wrong, I love the Stones, just because I happen to think a few  bands were better doesn't mean I don't love them.  Just because those bands I mentioned came after the Stones they will forever no matter what be not as good as the Stones, I get it.  I just don't agree with that.

As far as the Beatles and Stones comparison I never understood that.  Other than both being british and coming to the States in the 60's those two bands have nothing in common.  It is comparing apples and oranges.

First off, I should say that I agree with AxlReznor that Stones vs Beatles is a stupid comparison.
It's subjective and we aren't going to changes each others mind.

That said, let's continue, haha.

As far as the reinventing thing goes, the Stones didn't exactly stand still.
You use GN'R as an example. There is as much change going on from Beggars Banquet to Goats Head Soup as there is from AFD to Illusions.
If we are honest with ourselves, two different bands made AFD and Chinese. They just shared the name.
Same with the Stones. They have been a different band since Taylor left, and outside of Some Girls and a handful of tracks here and there, it's not my bag.

Honestly I couldn't care less what the experts/critics have to say. I'm just sharing my opinion.
I think Lennon and McCartney are great composers, but I never found myself really relating to their lyrics, as well written as they are.

If I could see any band, any era live, it would be between the '72 Stones, and '87 GN'R.

I wasn't knocking the Beatles lack of touring, I was referring to the lackluster live reputation they had.
I'm too young to have had the privilege of seeing them myself, or the Stones in their hey day live, but from video and talking to people I know who did see them, it was no comparison.
The Stones are regarded as one of the best, whereas the Beatles "technologically innovative" studio approach didn't translate well live.
I realize this proves nothing. Just opinions.

Going back to my original post, I don't view the Beatles as a rock n' roll band.
I have no problem with the Beatles being considered among the most popular bands of all time, but they were too clean for rock n' roll.
Leave r'n'r to the Stones!

I'm not going to fight you on Elvis!

I love all of the bands you mention, but could never put Queen or Aerosmith above the Stones.
I would love to give my fellow Bostonians the honor of greatest, but as much as I love their first 4 records, they went down hill after that and weren't nearly as prolific live.
I'd rank Queen among the greatest live acts, but their studio work is too inconsistent for me to put them in the same stratosphere as the Stones.

Had GN'R not been so short lived, I think they had the best chance. They had the total package.
Amazing lyrics, best frontman. Keith Richards Jr in Izzy, Mick Taylor/Joe Perry hybrid in Slash, and they were among the best live.
That lineup just wasn't around long enough.

I'm not as high on Zeppelin as a lot of people, though they were undeniably great.

I just think the Stones captured the spirit of rock n' roll better than anyone else.
Using Exile as example, you can clearly hear all of their influences from Elvis, Robert Johnson, Chuck, Reed etc but they obviously added to it, and that record sounds just as fresh to me today as it did the first time I heard it.

I agree with you, those are all great bands no doubt, but none of them imo were critically acclaimed as long as the stones were. From around mid to late 60s to the late 70s nobody was better period then what the stones did and that makes them the best ever imo.

I really liked the Steel Wheels album. That's the album that got me into them when i was 12 years old. One of my all time favorite songs is on 1967's Between The Buttons, Ruby Tuesday.


Oh definitely.
Just using the "40 Licks" greatest hits album as an example. There are only 8 or 9 songs off of that classic stretch of albums(Beggars, Let it Bleed, Sticky, Exile) on that compilation.
They were already hugely successful before those albums were even released!

I love the early records with Jagger/Richards originals, but also their takes on the Chuck Berry, Sam Cooke etc covers.

There are three eras as far as I'm concerned. Brian Jones, Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood.
The Wood era has some great moments, but easily the least impressive for me.
Jagger actually started playing rhythm on the later records, so kind of goes to show how much pull Wood even had.
Sucks that he ended up such a pushover, because he was a fucking stud in the Faces, especially some of the live bootlegs I've got from '71-'73.

They had auditioned Rory Gallagher after Taylor left.
I imagine that could have worked out much better.
Even though Jeff Beck doesn't seem like an obvious fit, that could have been cool too, but he turned it down.

Some of their early stuff is just as great as stuff at their peak. Another one of my favorites is a real  early song called As Tears Go By. I know they said they don't really like it but i do. I think its a pretty damn good song. Yes, 40 licks is a good measure of their greatness. I completely agree with Ronnie Wood. He's a much better player then he is with the Stones. When i saw him play at this years HOF ceremony. I was like wow! Is this the same guy in the Stones? Beck in the Stones would've been really cool, just a phenomenal guitar player.

Can't wait to see the track listing for the 4 CD set. Needed something comprehensive.

Between the last couple of deluxe editions and the 2 new songs, we have a new Stones album. Not sure why they went with a gorilla for the cover though.

It just took them a while to get back together and rehearse before deciding what to do, the "Crossfire Hurricane" documentary should be excellent, Jagger and Richards have nothing to hide at this point.

New tour! ZIP CODE ? 15 City North American Stadium tour

Kicking off May 24 in San Diego with stops in Columbus, Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Detroit, Buffalo, Quebec

#StonesZip

Ladies and gentlemen?the Rolling Stones are back! The band has announced that they will kick off their new 15-city North American stadium, ZIP CODE tour, in San Diego on May 24 at Petco Park. The tour will make stops in Columbus, Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Detroit and Buffalo before wrapping in Quebec on July 15 at Le Festival D??t? de Qu?bec.

Tickets for these dates will go on sale Monday, April 13. For ticketing information please visit rollingstones.com/tickets/.

American Express? Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public, beginning Wednesday, April 8.

?We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer!  We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs.? ? Mick Jagger

?We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America!  I can?t wait to get back on the stage!? ? Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as ?Gimme Shelter?, ?Paint It Black?, ?Jumpin? Jack Flash?, ?Tumbling Dice? and ?It?s Only Rock ?N? Roll?, as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalogue.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007?s A Bigger Bang Tour.

The stage design for the stadium shows includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones? set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones? show.

AEG Live?s Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour.

The tour will also coincide with the Rolling Stones re-release of Sticky Fingers on May 26 in North America, and May 25 in the rest of the world, by Universal Music. Sticky Fingers, one of the most revered albums from the Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of fans in 2015. The 1971 classic features timeless tracks such as ?Brown Sugar,? ?Wild Horses,? ?Bitch? and ?Dead Flowers?. Sticky Fingers 2015, with its iconic zip cover, will be unveiled in a variety of formats. The deluxe editions include a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones studio outtakes from the Sticky Fingers sessions and stunning live performances from that time. These sought after tracks have never been available until this release.

Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, Sticky Fingers was released just before the Stones became tax exiles in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most ground breaking design in rock history, with its famous working zip on the front cover and artwork by Andy Warhol.

Not nearly the treasure trove the other were though in terms of bonus tracks.

I thought the 'Exile' one was awesome.

Ronnie Wood Confirms Rolling Stones Working on New Album

The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood has confirmed that the rock legends, who just completed their historic trip to Cuba, are now focusing on the long-awaited follow-up to 2005's A Bigger Bang. In a new interview with The Associated Press, Wood revealed that the band recently spent a few days in the studio, where they recorded some new originals alongside nearly a dozen blues covers.

"We went in to cut some new songs, which we did," Wood said. "But we got on a blues streak. We cut 11 blues in two days. They are extremely great cover versions of Howlin' Wolf and Little Walter, among other blues people. But they really sound authentic? When we heard them back after not hearing them for a couple of months, we were, 'Who's that? It's you.' It sounded so authentic."

Wood added that the album would tentatively arrive "this year." Wood made the new album remarks in London at the group's "Exhibitionism" exhibit at the city's Saatchi Gallery. The event was also attended by Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Keith Richards, who wasn't as forthcoming as Wood when it came to new album details. "There's one coming," Richards admitted. "I can't say no more. My lips are sealed."

I actually dig it. It was written last year and originally had darker lyrics, which they lightened in wake of recent events. Keith says they're using this time to work on more new songs they already had in progress.

Pleasantly surprised with the new song. Like it, sounds like a Stones song should sound but not dated at the same time.

I agree, it sounds like the quintessential stoned song you would expect from them.
