As I hinted earlier, I went to the Stones show in LA last night. Great show! This was (I think) the 5th time I have seen the Stones. This show was excellent! I don't give a d@mn how old these guys are - they still rock in the same bluesy, soulful way the Stones have always rocked. But don't misunderstand - these guys are ANCIENT - they look like walking Egyptian mummies - except for Keith, who looks startlingly like an ancient Chimpanzee that has become a chain smoker. I don't care - yeah, Mick doesn't sprint around the ramp like he used to - but he still struts, and I can't believe he can still do any of the stuff he does.
I must say, the highlight of the show was the appearance of Mick Taylor on several of the old songs. His guitar still sings - and the Stones gave him plenty of opportunity to solo and show his stuff - it was great!
Here's the set list - it was a great mix!
Sorry for the bad pics - cell phone cameras and concerts just don't go together very well!
I think this was during Midnight Gambler with Mick Taylor:
Mick Jagger being Mick:
I also have a REALLY BAD iphone video from one of the encore songs - I guarantee they sounded much better than this!
