Anyone see the HBO documentary Crossfire Hurricane that just came out?
I highly suggest if you are a stones fan to DVR it or see it on demand. Awesome stuff on their early and glory years. Learned a lot of stuff I never knew and they have cool behind the scenes footage I've never seen.
My wife and I went to the Stones concert at the Prudential Center. Mick has lost very little. Keith just playing mid-range rhythm stuff in open tuning, Ronnie Wood doing the high leads. Watts was solid and the keyboardist and bass player were excellent as were the backup singers and sax players. Lady Gaga sang Gimme Shelter with Mick and was fantastic. John Mayer played and was his usual unparalleled self. Springsteen sand a song with Mick and seemed overwhelmed to be on the same stage with him. Very pricey tickets but worth every penny.
I went to all three Stones shows in December. Actually listening to some of the bootlegs now. The 12/13 show (middle show) was the best one.
The band was basically bare bones. Is Keith the Keith of 72? Absolutely not but his play was solid. He and Ronnie had their guitars up front and sounded great.
Jagger is amazing. Still such high energy at 69. Charlie Watts was as solid as he ever was.
The sax player was Bobby Keys. He's played with the Stones forever and also played with Lennon, Harrison, Joe Cocker, Dion and many others.
Mick Taylor came out for Midnight Rambler and was amazing. Mayer and Gary Clark Jr also played and both can really play great guitar.
Today is actually the 50th anniversary of the first time all of the original Stones (Jagger, Richards, Jones, Wyman, Watts and Stewart) played together live for the first time at the Ealing Club in West London.
The pics look great! I bet the show was awesome. I saw the Stones 20 or so years ago in Jacksonville, FL and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. Thank God Mick didn't become a judge on American Idol and ruin my opinion of him forever LOLOL
The Stones are always a good show and the fact that they're still playing is a tribute to them and their love of playing live.
I saw them down here at the old Vet in 89 and the show was great! I think they really like Philly because they kicked off a few tours here. I was a bit to young but my old man went to see them back in 78 at JFK and said that the fans rioted and damaged a lot of **** lol! usually it's The Stones doing that sort of stuff.
