Here's a tip for you if you want to save the now songwise selectable Rio-concert at music.aol.com (see link below), taken from stonesforum.nl (thanks, nautilus!!):

If you want to download each individual wmv stream, after playing each video at the AOL site, go to your temporary internet folder and right-click on each DAT file to check properties - then copy the URL (only as far as .wmv) and paste into your download manager (like NetTransport, HiDownload etc.) to download each wmv file to your hard drive...

At stonesforum.nl, you'll find the URL to each of the songs played as well as the link to a free tool for getting streaming videos: sdp.ppona.com

ABC Cleans Up the Sexagenarian Stones' Lyric Malfunction (nytimes.com)
NFL edits out explicit Stones lyrics (seattlepi.nwsource.com)

WTF??? That's hilarious! Here's what was edited out -I quote the seattlepi:

[cite]
Two sexually explicit lyrics were excised from the rock legends' performance Sunday. The only song to avoid the editor was "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," a 41-year-old song about sexual frustration.

In "Start Me Up," the show's editors silenced one word, a reference to a woman's sexual sway over a dead man. The lyrics for "Rough Justice" included a synonym for rooster that the network also deemed worth cutting out.
