Yes, we love you! The Rolling Stones just released a restored version of the historic We Love You video
It’s really nice to hear that song again. And also nice to have that historic document retored digitally. They say it’s 4k, but nevertheless, the original stays the same and that’s why the picture is not very much better than the original. And how could it? But anyway, this is the best restored and saved quality we could have as of today. So just have a look at the video and enjoy!
Mick has tweeted a ‘moving tribute’ about Charlie. As have Keith, Ronnie and the band.
Rolling Stone wrote about Mick’s message; the citation above is from there. The mag further quotes Mick:
“I miss Charlie because he had a great sense of humor,” Jagger reflects, adding, “Outside of the band, you know,we used to hang out quite a lot and have interesting times. We loved sports; we’d go to football, we’d go to cricket games, and we had other interests apart from just music.” He concludes, “But, of course, I really miss Charlie so much.”
Hi there, folks, just on a quick note: those three will play 6 shows at 3 nights at the Blue Note in NYC!
It’s called “Celebrating Charlie Watts – Featuring members of The Rolling Stones & Special Guests” and will take place at the Blue Note Jazz Club, New York, NY. Check over there for tickets and infos …
You know it – Charlie passed away just 1 year ago…
Dates are Monday, August 29, Tuesday, August 30 and Wednesday, August 31, at 8 PM and 10:30 PM each. Doors open at 6 PM and 10 PM respectively. As for the line-up we see these names listed:
I just had some time off, some holidays and was busy relaxing, visiting the northern coast and spening my time reading and riding bike…
Now that the (fantastic, btw) tour is over, it’s about time to get beack on what’s happening all around the Stones world. There should be some news (see some interesting stuff below) as well as plans for this site, too:
First, What are Mick, Keith and Ronnie doing?
Second: What’s about the new (???!!?) album, new releases or even rumours about the next tour??
Third: There are still some reviews left I want to write
Forth: We’re heading towards the 5.000.000 visitors of stonesnews.com – and that a number I’m really looking forward to.
Fifth: it’s important to make yesterday’s papers much more easily accessible, I find. The first post here was in February 2019… so I want all these posts to be at hand with one or two clicks for you. I already have two or three solutions but I want them to look as nice and navigate as easily as possible. So give some more time and they’ll be on.
And here’s some of the news that caught my eye:
I guess you already came across the name Matt Lee – he doesn’t miss any Stones show and he’s almost every time the first to post his semi-pro videos on YT!
And here’s the Rolling Stone writing about him: “Meet the Rolling Stones Superfan Who’s Spent Millions on His Collection and Attends Every Single Show – Matt Lee got into the Rolling Stones as a 12-year-old kid. His obsession grew to the point that he’s now in the Guinness Book of World Records and counts Ron Wood as a good friend”
Then there are rumours about the Stones would do a show in Argentina next spring. But there’s doubt about this, coming from nationworldnews.com: “Reasons why the Rolling Stones won’t come to Argentina in March“
Yes indeed, here we are: at the final stop of the European SIXTY Tour of the Rolling Stones!
Well, once again it can be savely said, that they blew everyone’s mind and expectations – 3 lads in their late 70ies once again defined, what Rock ‘n’ Roll is all about – sinister lyrics, mean ( and LOUD) guitars, a production on highest levels (sound, lights) but as for the music: you still hear every wrong note or misled chord in the honest and raw mix. That’s it, folks.
And that’s what we have to expect for tonight’s finale – maybe some surprise song which they haven’t done since long? But at least, we’ll get what this band stands for: hand made custom Rock’n’Roll… ALL DOWN THE LINE:
Es war das erste Konzert der Rolling Stones in Berlin: Am 15. September 1965 spielten sie in der Waldbühne. Am Mittwoch sind sie auf Abschiedstour – und in Berlin wieder in der Waldbühne. pic.twitter.com/bsgdlPYKhy
The Rolling Stones have landed in Berlin and rushed to their Hotel
Later, Ronnie and his family went to an italian restaurant – see bz-berlin.de for this with some pictures. t-online.de reports about this, too.
rbb24.de has some nice pictures in their gallery; moz.de has some more infos about the show as well as a look back on that mayhem that accompanied the band’s show at the same place in 1965 – have look!!
So we finally have reached the last show of this tour. It went by so fast! Did you see one or more shows of this tour? Would you like to share your thoughts on this? Will the Stones add another tour? And what about their new album? – Just leave a comment or send me a mail.
Doors open: 16:30 Show start: 18:30 (Ghost Hounds) Rolling Stones: ca. 20:30
