I’ve seen these boys live. Have you? I took my pretty-boy singer/songwriter son, Hunter to the 40 Licks Tour when he was in 6th grade. I don’t get super-starstruck, but when I saw Mick Jagger take the stage, my first thought was “ohmygod…I’m breathing the same AIR as MICK!. I know, right? D O R K.  I was flooded with images of The Ed Sullivan Show,  Studio 54, Altamont, Andy Warhol, Maryanne, Bianca, Jerry, and the fact that I was THERE…with Hunter? Man.

Hunter, 2002

 

I’ve said it before, but I felt like I was taking him to SCHOOL.  This time, though, he was working on his Masters Degree.

I’m telling you people who laugh and make fun of the age of these legends. GO. Take it all in, and realize that we will NEVER see a band like this ever again.

 

This WILL be the last time.

The Rolling Stones NEW VIDEO PREMIERE For ‘Doom and Gloom’ – We Have It! (Sorta NSFW)

I wish I had ALL of these back issues!

 

This new Rolling Stones video was supposed to debut at midnight EST tonight, but looky who’s got it (uhh…thanks Rolling Stone Magazine!).

 

 

Just like  the classics Gimme Shelter and Sympathy For The Devil, we are  challenged as listeners and viewers with the words and images in Gloom and Doom.  Listen to it several times.

Oh, hey…if you haven’t yet watched Crossfire Hurricane on HBO, I suggest you do so.  Record it; you’ll want to watch it more than once.  The narration by ‘the boys’ during clips from the Altamont tragedy is riveting and terrifying. Even though you already think you know what transpired–you don’t know everything.

The Rolling Stones Making Fun of The Beatles’ Music Back In 1965 Video PLUS Concert Info and New Song, ‘Doom and Gloom’

 

Those naughty rogues. Just look at Mick and Keith making sport of The Beatles‘ tunes “I’ve Just Seen a Face” and “Eight Days A Week“. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen “Keef” smile with such joy as seen here in the itty-bitty clip.

“The Rolling Stones‘ 50th Anniversary uncorks another bottle of champagne next month with the previously announced release of Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965, a rarity of a film that focuses on the band’s visit to Ireland circa September 1965…

The full, unseen relic will surface on DVD and Blu-Ray come November 6th. A box set that includes both the DVD and Blu-ray discs, two CDs (the soundtrack and live recordings of their 1965 British tour), a 10″ vinyl of live tracks, a 1965 Belfast gig poster, a 42 pg hardcover book, and even a limited cell from the film will also be available. Those with Direct TV, however, can catch the film on November 10th.”

 

Mick’s always been cheeky, and always will be. Lord, look at Charlie. That same stoic, bored and disapproving side-eye remains the same, doesn’t it? Superfunny.

So.  Who’s got tickets to see The Stones either in London or Newark, New Jersey? Because I’d TOTALLY go with you.

And Mick? At what, 69? Most of us probably still would.
