tumblingdice Great guitars and overall effort by the band, would have done better if not boycotted due to the gulf war.

Nasty Habits I love High Wire. I think it makes a lot more sense now than it made when it was released. I very much wish they would revive it.

Lacride We walk the highwire
Sending the men up to the front line
Hoping they don't catch the hell fire
With hot guns and cold, cold nights

We walk the highwire
Sending the men up to the front line
And tell 'em to hotbed the sunshine
With hot guns and cold, cold nights

Simple lyrics (war is always the same shit since the early beginn of humanity...) but that MUST be said.
I love that tune too, especially the clear guitars and «Mick's way to speak/sing» (sorry, can't find the right words in English!)

That makes perfect sense to me, Lacride. Mick's way to speak/sing on that song is absolutely killer.


We act so greedy make me sick sick sick!

corgi37 Highwire, and the james brown rip off sex drive, are the only decent things about flashpoint. that is the least exciting live album they've released. WEll, no security is, i guess. The film clip for highwire is pretty wicked too. Pity Bill couldnt be fucked to make it to the shoot. But then, if i was with Mandy Smith, i wouldnt go either.

MC KEEF highwire was one of their best songs of the 80s and 90s and definitely should have been on 40 licks...

I dunno...

Keith still likes talking about this song, I recall he made a comment about it in an interview. I think if the US goes to war, we will hear from the Stones that night...
