July 2 - Raleigh Aftermath
=> Boy, what a show! I came in a little late, but what I can tell from the periscope feeds I've enjoyed, the band delivered a highly energetic, enthusiastic and well performed show. That's normal for them by now, but let's not forget, that this being said on the grounds of a really high expectation! Again, I can't really tell from the feeds, but I think, this time they had some (technical) sound problem here and there. Some slight mishaps here and there, but that's normal. When the reviewers state that they (in a positive sense) sound like a garage band, then, well, not bad for these 'boring old farts', hehehe :-)

I bumped into Bernard Fowler on the street in Chicago yesterday [June 26] while on vacation with my wife. He was very gracious that I knew who he was and invited me to sit next to him on the steps for a brief conversation. He was very kind. He asked about my family and told me about his. I said how the band sounded the best they ever had and he looked me dead in the eye and repeated "ever!" Then he told me to check out his new solo album (I saw that he covered Can't You Hear Me Knocking on it)."

Only hours left until the Stones play Kansas! Have a great show, everybody!

Choose from among Street Fighting Man / Get Off My Cloud / Live With Me / Ain't Too Proud To Beg
=> Very nice: yesterday, the whole band visited Buddy Guy's Club in Chicago to share some stories, talk and hear blues and enjoy themselfs. As all stones were part of the scene, that is really a rare occasion and at the same time a very good sign for the good feeling among the group members during this tour. Apparently, they wanted this evening to be added for their tour documentary. Keith was there before the rest of the Stones came and played pool with Buddy and signing the white Gibson ES he gave to him as you can see in "Shine A Light". It was also seen later, when they were all there, that Ronnie and Keith shot pictures of Buddy playing on stage with their phones. Wow! Never knew that Keith has and even uses a handy! Maybe the times he only sends FAX are gone for good, hehehe ... Rolling Stone has a nice article about the event and a video (see below), too, so go there and check it out!
June 26 - 3 shows audio
=> Dear folks, Chris L. has mailed me his audio from three complete shows which he put up at dropbox so we all can enjoy them! Mighty fine! Thanks a lot, Chris! So here are: NASHVILLE / PITTSBURGH / MILWAUKEE - enjoy!
=> My own little review: what a gig! And thanks to Debbie, who again scoped the complete show, I can venture to write some words about the show although I haven't been there in person. Thanks so much, Debbie! Well, as you can see, they really mixed up the setlist quite a bit. Of course, as this was a relatively small audience of only about 25,000 people in Marcus Amphitheater. In stadiums almost thrice the size, that is not so easy for them. Buddy Guy opend and joined them for "Champagne & Reefer", Keith nailed all of his solos (he's really playing well). However, the intro for Honky Tonk Woman was a bit shakey due to some uncommon cowbell playing by Chuck. Moonlight Mile was again taken into the set, but they also played CYHMK and Heartbreaker. Ronnie really shined on his solo spots. A rock solid show, but even better.
Honky Tonk Woman
Introductions Thank you very much! We had a great trip coming here to Milwaukee, we came on the Badger. We came with a crate of Miller Lite and a Bratwurst…

July 20, 2011 (and for eternity) - The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers And The Lost Photo Session
Ok, this comes a bit late. But since there are no more news about the possible gigs for Hide Park or anything like a tour in 2012 right now, I thought we could use the occasion and look back over yonder...
Recently, a treasure of photographs were discoverd after photographer Peter Webb's negatives went missing after shooting the Stones for that monster record "Sticky Fingers". Then, out of nowhere, they are re-discovered after a gap of almost 40 years. Let's have a look... oh man, have a look at Keith's eyes ...
