Maybe you did that before..


please answer this! I want to know who you are...

a) born/year/country
b) Stones fan since
c) Best album
d) best song
e) number of Stones shows
f) first Stones show
g) last stones show
h) best Stones show
i) Stones show you would love to have attended
j) biggest disappointment (Stoneswise)
k) biggest hope for 2002


a) 1968/Germany
b) 1982 (a month too late for the German shows)
c) Exile
d) Gimme Shelter (among 100 others)
e) 30
f) Hannover, 23.5.90
g) Köln, 20.6.99
h) Amsterdam, 5.7.98 (among 29 others)
i) Hannover, 6.6.82
j) look at:

03-23-02 07:49 AM
beer A: 1977, USA
B:fan since 1994
C:best album is "Exile" without a doubt. It is everything that is great in rock and roll and life. "beggars" is a close 2nd.
D: Best song, Jumpin Jack Flash is so amazing, everything about it, the production, the riff, the hook. It is addictive.
E:Only seen em once, Seattle 97
I: what show would i have liked to have seen, any small club gig
Jissapointment, clean sounding guitars. I think the last album with "dirty" sounding guitars was "Tattoo You"
K: hope for 2002, obscure songs, "Torn and frayed" "Sway" etc.
03-23-02 07:59 AM
The Worst a) 1982/Austria
b) 1997
c) Tattoo You
d) Worried About You
e) 1
f) Wiener Neustadt/Austria, 1998
i) Imst/Austria, 1999 (I would have skipped school for it, but it was too far away)
j) the live-albums of the 80ies and 90ies (does it really need on from every tour?) or the name of the "No-Security"-tour: stupid to record a live album from a tour in support of a studio album and then doing a tour in support of that live-album! But the tour was also regarded as the second part of the Bridges-tour, which I liked more.
k) no new live-album
03-23-02 09:36 AM
nanky 1963/USA/Aries/C10
fan since 1977 or so, but I believe aliens from another world inserted some sort of mutant DNA in me and I have chromoStones that make me a fan by genetics.
the best album is Exile - especially when stoned
the best song cannot be determined
I have seen them 9 times
First in Buffahole NY in '81
Last was DC in '99
Best show was probably opener for '94 although Atlanta '97 was damn fine -- any boots out there from that show?
biggest disappointment was missing them in '78 which I was bummed about at the time but am clinically depressed about now having heard Handsome Girls thanks to a "crazy bald guy!" (Thanks FPM -- perfectly sums up MA)
2002 - I want it done right. Don't care how they do it, what has to be done -- they need to put out a definitive release that needs to capture people with the same magic as some of their previous milestones. And they need a tour that U2 looks at and says "man I wish we had thought of that"

03-23-02 11:21 AM
a) 1957 (!!!) USA
b) 1965
c) Let It Bleed
d) Midnight Rambler
e) 16
f) Philly 6/30/75
g) Chicago 2, NS tour, April '99
h) MSG3, January '98
i) Tribute to Stu, 1986
j) I got everyone I know to go see them in Philly '78, and it turned out to be one of the worst shows they ever did. _I_ liked it, but some of my friends are still mad at me.

k) To attend a club date

Nanker- "crazy bald guy!" (Thanks FPM -- perfectly sums up MA) Actually I said "Crazy Bald Head" which is a Bob Marley song. To Bob anyone who didn't have dreadlocks was a crazy bald head. You know, the other "Junkie" that came to DC in '99 also shaves his head now. Am I next?

No. No I am not.

FPM C10 The Joey C10 spake:

a) August 1st , 1964 / USA

wait - did I know that before??? That is also the esteemed Cardinal X's birthday, and one day after mine.

We gotta build a fire in the backyard to celebrate some year. We shall drink, and smoke, and drink, oil our bodies and dance like clowns!

k) biggest hope for 2002

Good thread!!

a) 1963 (same week as the Stones released their first record) Northern Ireland,UK
b) 1973 in moderation. 1977 as an addict
c) Exile. "Some girls" and "sticky fingers" run it close.
d) Midnight rambler from "ya ya's"
e) 21 .. plus Woody solo in dublin in 2001
f) Slane Castle 24th July 1982
g) Wembley stadium 12th June 1999
h) Shepherds Bush 8th june 1999
i) El Mocambo 1977 or Amsterdam Paradiso 1995
j) The fact that nowadays their ticket prices are so scandalously high and their greed is threatening to overcome their music as their legacy.

k) Four things :

1) getting to share a room with Jaxx instead of with Gerardo again on this tour! ;-)
2) being able to afford to go and see some shows overseas this year!
3) that even at this late stage the Stones go and do the whole thing properly - ie release a good new studio album,make their shows affordable,mix up the playlists like Dylan does, play decent sized venues & gear the shows towards their fanbase instead of the "more money than sense" corporate crowd theyve favoured in recent years
4) that when they're compiling the boxed set,they let me help them archive it by giving me access to the studio sessions and letting me interview them for the book that I hope they'll commission me to write to accompany the release

At this stage,I imagine that option 4) is more likely than option 1). Number 2) and 3) are possibilities I guess!

Remember Blues Traveller opening?
What a joke eh?
Remember the 20-50 empty yellow seats right of the stage when the Stones came on and through out the show? What was that?
Remember Mick dancing like he "used to" durring Under My Thumb in Chicago?
Remember the 2 encors?
Remember many black street saxaphone players outside Soldier Field after the show?
Remember the $10 Stones tee shirts outside the Stadium?
Remember the $30 Stones tee shirts inside the Stadium?
Remember how cold it was?
Remember when Mick said,
"You got Da Bears, Da Bulls, and now you got Da Stones?"

Hot Stuff, nice choice btw...

Miss U. Cheers to Stonesthrow!

SDH, babe--thx! RnR Circus, I'd be standing right in front of Brian, lol. I could do without Yoko's "singing" though.

And who would guess we've only been to 2 shows?

One more far-out hope for 2002--to meet Mick Jagger. I'd settle for 2003 or 2004 even....
03-24-02 02:51 PM
Nasty Habits SDH --

Yeah, Blues Traveller opening for the Stones stands as my #1 most unfortunate veiwing of a band of all time.
Remember that retarded opening to the show of the Hendrix National anthem on harmonica?
Remember when they did that dumb melody that broke into the Violent Femmes' Blister in the Sun?
God, I wish I could forget all of that.

Got really bombed on not too cheap cheap beer at that show and forgot all about it being cold. Drank to quell my anxieties. Was not a fan of the Voodoo Lounge show I saw (Columbia, MO) and was worried about how good it was gonna be.

Called the opening song, called Keith's set (the friend I was with and I were joking . . . Yeah, he's gonna do "Wanna Hold You" and "All About You", and then were blown away when he actually played those songs), and 2/3 of the second stage (great seats for that).

Totally blew a gasket during the second stage -- had never heard the band actually sound like . . . you know . . . THAT before. Danced so hard I think other people thought I might have an epileptic fit.

I remember Mick dancing during Under My Thumb VERY well. Backing up into the band and wiggling towards the end . . Calling for extra choruses and the band really paying attention to each other to see where the arrangement was going. Magic.
As I also recall he got down quite impressively on Rock and a Hard Place, at least to my drunk ass . . .

Also remember 19th Nervous Breakdown . . . Rocked like mad. Remember being slightly distressed that "On our first trip" got changed to "When we first met . . ."

Everyone around me used me as a guide to know how well things were going -- people kept asking me whether it was still the greatest thing I'd ever seen in my life, and at the time I could honestly say that it was . . .

Confetti spray during Brown Sugar flying more out of the stadium than on everybody's heads.

Bitch with the stretched out verses and the "You Got to Mix It!" interludes.

The not Double Door debut of Out of Control (my head explodes during the harmonica solo).

The GREATEST Start Me Up ever! I can still remember Jagger actually doing the high "Yeaeeeahah" after the "Ride like the wind" bit. More hairs stand up.

That show was just epic.

Actually saw the second night as well . . . I remember being totally distressed that nobody around me knew "Sister Morphine" . . . Keith saying "Are you sure?" before they did "She's a Rainbow" and Mick taking chorus after chorus. But the first night was more rockin' and spontaneous.
