Monkeytonkman I went to the Stones gig in Paris with Bon Jovi Supporting,

Fucking loved the weather, when it started pissing down as oon as the Stones came on it was just like God himself was lending a helping had to the visual effects, the lightning really added to the whole Voodoo feel to proceedings.

doesn't anyone here realize that the guys in Bon Jovi are huge stones fans? Just because they don't totally cop their style like Aerosmith or Guns N Roses or the New York Dolls do doesn't mean they're not huge stones fans. Actually they cop their style from the New York Dolls who copped their style from the rolling stones. And Richie Sambora is a rather large Rolling Stones fan, in fact he loves them, and also Aerosmith who are probably the biggest stones proteges and wanna-bes that have ever existed. Richie Sambora even plays a lot of well-known distinctive "keith richards" guitars like a gibson L5S aka "the keith richards model" and a zemaitis, a guitar custom-built for keith richards who ronnie wood also uses. Don't bash other fans of the stones just because they make music that isn't exactly like the stones.



with respect, I think youre missing the point, Brian. I'd say most people here are capable of enjoying music thats got little or no similarity to that played by the Stones. I dont see what Aerosmith has to do with this - no one mentioned them. Any musical link (or lack of one) between two bands has got nothing to do with whether they're any good...and them being fans hardly makes them immune to criticism either - but if you dig them, good luck to you.

I just bash them because they suck. Why should I like a band just because they are fans or proteges of a decent band? Those are not good reasons.

Nor are Richie Sambora, Guns n Rose and Aerosmith my cup of tea either.
