June 29 – The Rolling Stones play Canada again!

What a joy to see the band playing live and so well the last two gigs. The band’s on fire and athough it’s their 57th year as a band playing live, they sound better than ever. Like in Europe, they mix the guitars way up front, exspecially so on JJF or Street Fighting Man – it just rings in your ear and it comes over really heavy. Old dudes play Rock’nRonn in your face and it’s rough, dirty and loud! – Just as it should!

So let’s get dressed up for tonight and hope for some decent streams to follow the band and the lucky fans at the show!

Chicago II aftermath

The Rolling Stones – Chicago June 25, 2019

June 26 – Chicago II aftermath

What a great concert! This time, there were fewer streams, but nevertheless, I/we could follow basically the whole set.

Hilarious moment was, when Keith started with Midnight Rambler although he had been handed the guitar for Paint It Black (Telecaster with capo on the 2nd fret) and the whole band, although a bit puzzled, joined in. Charlie bashed on in and Mick sang the first two lines, although apparently a little irritated. While singing, he went over to Chuck and he was heard to ask Chuck: twice “Is it the wrong key?

Then the band stopped and Mick grinned and went back to center stage – “Sorry, I’m sorry…” Then he hugged Keith who came towards him because he, too, had realised that there was something wrong. Mick said: “It’s alright, Keith … it’s ok …” and to the audience: “It’s only the second night … and it’s only one fuck-up!” And then Keith also greets the audience and Mick goes on: “I think, we’re supposed to be doing Paint It Black!” Then Keith plays the intro and the band rolls on.

I just love them! 🙂

Have a look at this here:

You can also have a closer look at Keith’s reaction here which is not seen in the video above – you can see that he immediately had realised that he went wrong…

And here you have Play With Fire from the b-stage:

  • It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll
  • Ride Em On Down
  • Sweet Virginia

Again, it’s going to be an early wake call up for me: as I’ll join in to the fun as the Stones play their second gig in Chicago tonight, I will get up at 1:30 or 2:00 AM over here at my home in order to be there in time to update the Stonesnews_pages.

Some tours ago, I swore to myself, that I won’t miss a show of this band as long as they still play live. Up to now, I could fulfill this oath and I intend to keep it! 🙂

So tonight we’ll get treated with another show and hopefully many nice streams via Periscope or Facebook as before, so that we can follow the show even if we’re not there in person.

=> They have a great poster for tonight’s gig: a beautifully colored Telecaster!

Meanwhile, Ronnie has shared with us the sectrets of his warming-up procedure:

And the band tweeted yesterday:

Night 1 in Chicago on the No Filter Tour! Can’t wait to do it all over again tomorrow

Last, but not least, Pat Rainer tweeted a nice pic, commenting it thus:

Rock n Roll is alive and well. Thank you for a great night of music

Well, he definitely is right here!

The Press – Ronnie: Mick + new album

Ronnie with The Sun's Showbiz Features Editor Stuart Pink

June 25 – The english tabloid The Sun issued an interview with Ronnie two days ago.

Ok, that’s not particularly the latest news, but then I seem to have overlooked that bit. But it is quite nice and thus recommended to read, much more so because it’s not just like 10, 15 lines of text but quite a bit more to read. So here are just two little exerpts:

Ronnie on Mick:

The doctors said they’ve never operated on an athlete at 75 before — we had a really good laugh about that. [ … ] He’s just so fit, he sets aside three hours a day to do exercise and that’s done him plenty of favours in later life. He’s superhuman really.

Ronnie about (new) music:

It’s like a medicine. We don’t like to stop working. All being well, there’ll be a new album and a new tour. [ … ] It will be great — but let’s get this one over with first.

thesun.co.uk has the complete article, that also appeared at foxnews.com

New Book: the Stones in NYC

Can't give it away on seventh avenue - by Christopher McKittrick

June 25 – there’s a new Stones-book for us!

It’s called “CAN’T GIVE IT AWAY ON SEVENTH AVENUE” and is written by Christopher McKittrick.

The subtitle reads: THE ROLLING STONES IN NEW YORK CITY.

Can't give it away on seventh avenue - by Christopher McKittrick
Can’t give it away on seventh avenue – by Christopher McKittrick

Data:

  • Paperback: 256 pages, $12,60  at Amazon
  • Kindle: Amazon
  • Barnes&Noble: NOOK Book (eBook), $9,99
  • Publisher: Post Hill Press (25. Juni 2019)
  • ISBN-10: 1642930393
  • ISBN-13: 978-1642930399

And here is the complete info:

A complete history of The Rolling Stones in New York City.

When the Rolling Stones first arrived at JFK Airport in June 1964, they hadn’t even had a hit record in America. By the end of the decade, they were mobbed by packed audiences at Madison Square Garden and were the toast of New York City’s media and celebrity scene.

More than fifty years later, the history of New York City and the Rolling Stones have entwined and paralleled, with the group playing in nearly all of the Big Apple’s legendary venues. Along the way Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and the rest of the Stones have left an impact on the culture of the city, from the turbulent “Fun City” of the 1960s and ’70s through the twenty-first century. The evolving career of the Stones has often reflected the cultural changes of the city, as the Stones and their music were the center of social and political controversies during the same era that New York faced similar challenges.

Can’t Give It Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones and New York City explores the history of the group through the prism of New York. It is a highly detailed document of the dynamic and reciprocal relationship between the world’s most famous band and America’s most famous city as well as an absorbing chronicle of the remarkable impact the city has had on the band’s music and career.
