TT Yes,

they could do:

2 Examples:

1. Just saw Dylan 2 times in one week. The changes in the setlist and the different arrangements of certain songs are things the Stones must do, too. Not only 2 songs from day to day, why not changing 50%? Thatīs how an artist keeps his fun and surprises the fans.

2. And the WHO (yeah, they ARE great) have the harder/louder guitar sound (MSG benefit showed it). So crank up and fuzz up Keithīs and Ronnieīs volume.

And what the most amazing part is: Dylan and Townshend donīt give a fuck what the people think about mistakes. They just PLAY.

sandrew I wouldn't say Keith and Ronnie are concerned about making mistakes - they make a lot of them, they're genuine, no one cares. They definitely can't be called "slick" guitar players...

Joey "And the WHO (yeah, they ARE great) have the harder/louder guitar sound (MSG benefit showed it). So crank up and fuzz up Keithīs and Ronnieīs volume "

Amen , then again , Pete Townshend plays guitar nowadays the way Jimi Hendrix used to back in the ' 60's .

Yes !!!!!!

CousinCocaine When you look back to the 70's - these days they do a lot of setlist changing. It could be even more but they have done more and more of this since the last tour.

But you're right about the arrangements. I'm really bored with their arrangements of most of their "Biggies".This is something they really should change. F.e. "Sympathy" is dreadful these days. Listen to the YaYa's version! A lot of songs need new/ or different clothes !

Or better YET - listen to the version they did on the Rock & Roll Circus!! I just watched that again recently - with Rocky Dijon and Brian on percussion, it sounded EVIL, like the studio version. It needs pared down, and packed with REAL percussion, not the casio crap they've been using. And NO HORNS!

Given that gripe session - it's STILL Mick Jagger singing his greatest set of lyrics, no matter HOW they play it. And that ain't chopped liver.

KeepRigid Need I remind everyone the name of this current tour (with some minor changes, as per my lawyer's counsel)?

gypsy Jeez! The Stones are finally going to tour, and all you guys can do is complain!
05-15-02 09:43 AM
Joey Amen My Queen.........

Why they complain , who really knows ??????

Sometimes I feel like it is just you and me against the world -- the only two who really " get " it . May the gods of Aragon bless you this month .
