    I'm planning on spending no more than $250. None of my friends will go at that price. I've gone by myself to all the Stones shows I've seen since Bridges to Babylon.

    I was in exactly the same quandry for years in the 1980s, where I'd try figuring out Stones tunes in standard tuning (because that was the only tuning I knew) and was never able to get them to sound right: it'd be in the right key, but the sound was off. Around the time when Steel Wheels was released, I remember a Guitar Player magazine interview where Keith talked about his tunings (the...what the fuck is it...DGDGBE...something like that), and as soon as I tuned down to that, riff after riff started sounding like they should: Brown Sugar, Start Me Up, Can't You Hear Me Knocking, etc.

    There was another variation besides the one mentioned above he mentioned in the article that unlocked the correct way to play a whole other rash of Stones tunes correctly. It was the mix of those open tunings with standard tunings used by Jones/Taylor/Wood that gave the Stones guitars that great sound. From there, I learned about that low E-string drop-D tuning Van Halen used, and all of a sudden a whole bunch of Van Halen songs that never sounded quite right when I was trying to figure them out in standard (like, the first 5 songs on Fair Warning, for starters) sounded as they should have.
    Tuning is a major part of it but also you have to hit the strings the way Keef does. You have to play over that back pickup. With Eddie I learned you really have to whack the hell out of the strings when you do the hammer ons. He does it effortlessly and it doesn't look like he is hitting the strings hard but he is. To get the sound you have to whack the bugger. Actually playing slap funk on a bass helped me figure out some on Eddie's playing techniques. It finally hit me a lot of what he does is slap funk on a guitar.

    We play 3 Stones covers with my band during gigs, between our own tunes. The lead guitarist uses a guitar he specially uses for "Brown Sugar", in open G. We also do "Get off of my Cloud" and "Sympathy for the Devil" (I wish we'd play "Crazy Mama", "Before they make me run", "If you can't rock me" or "Happy" instead, but the others will go "we'd better play the tunes everybody knows by ear" - they rather know little about good old stuff in France and Switzerland, apart from end-aisle display - which pisses me as what I think we should do is play what we feel like playing first and foreall), but I think on the latter two both our guitar players play normally tuned.

    I remember back in the late 70s, early 80s when I started digging the Stones a damn lot, I thought they played a little out of tune but loved it.
    Later, when I heard about Keith playing open tunings inspired by high time blues artists, I loved the Stones' music even more.

    Looks like there are plenty of gaps of time between " official " dates . I get the feeling they will fill those in as the Stones tour monster gains momentum . Seems like this is the pattern for most recent Stones tours . Announce a few scattered " official " dates to stir up interest and plug in the holes with the highest bidders , logistics not withstanding .
    Naturally they will cash in like a sonuvabitch . Trust me when I tell ya I would sell my first born to see this show . Fortunately I don't have kids so I guess multiple trips to the bloodbank will have to do .

    Brilliant interview with Charlie in today's Guardian newspaper:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2013/apr/04/charlies-watts-rolling-stones-drummer-interview

    He doesn't like playing outdoors 'cos the wind fucks with his cymbals; doesn't want to play Glastonbury 'cos he never liked hippes ...

    I know, Charlie. I hate festivals as well, and I'm still in my 40s. What a pain in the arse it must be when you are in your 70s.

    And he doesn't have to sit in traffic or in the crowd like the rest of us do!

    I always like the post-show fireworks as a diversionary tactic to get the band out of the building.

    Showed up way early before the Licks tour show and saw the motorcade come in. That was pretty cool.

    All tickets for Hyde Park were sold in less than 3 minutes today...

    Fuck. Between £95 and £300...

    I'll keep happy with my '69 Hyde Park video.

    And to think they played FOR FREE back in the day...

    No shit... as much of a Stones fan as I am, I could never stand more than 5 minutes of those sites. Though IORR used to be a pretty good source of finding bootlegs, but then that got outsourced to a Yahoo e mail list that got corrupted with spammers, so that was the end of that.

    Wyman didn't even play the NY gigs last year. Apparently he's only interested if he can drive to the gig in his own car.

    But then he's 76 years old, so it's not surprising that he doesn't want to travel much.

    Yeah I've read that Wyman isn't interested in flying any more.

    I've heard Bootsy Collins and Aretha Franklin don't like flying, either.

    By the sounds of this, Gwen Stefani wasn't only dressed up like 1972, but she found Keef's heroin stash from that year and shot up all of it. God damn, did she ever fuck up the lyrics or what??

    LOS ANGELES, May 4 (Reuters) - The Rolling Stones rocked a packed house in Los Angeles on Friday on the opening night of their North American "50 and Counting" tour, but only after websites slashed ticket prices and the band released additional cheap seats at the last minute.

    The 17-date tour is the veteran British rockers' biggest in six years and follows a handful of dates in London, Paris and New York at the end of 2012 marking 50 years since they burst on to the music scene at London's Marquee Club in 1962.

    "We first played LA in 1965. Thank you for coming to see us. We really appreciate it," frontman Mick Jagger said late on Friday during the show at Staples Center.

    The 69-year-old strutted and gyrated in his trademark style through a string of classic Stones hits including "Gimme Shelter," "Paint it Black" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash."

    Celebrities like Jack Nicholson and Melanie Griffith attended the show, which also featured guest performances by singer Gwen Stefani on "Wild Horses" and Keith Urban on "Respectable."

    Days before the show, hundreds of seats were still available and secondary sellers scrambled to unload tickets by slashing prices from the original $250 to $600 price range which had irked many of even the most die-hard Stones fans.

    The band also released additional seats at a modest $85 on its official website this week, the only price point that quickly sold out for the May 3 concert.

    Buyers who opted to buy the $85 seats online were instructed to line up at the arena just before the show, and were told they would be notified of their locations which could range anywhere for prime seating to further back in the venue.

    "It's very thrilling. It's like gambling and the Stones all rolled into one," said Los Angeles realtor Kelley Miller, who had bought a pair of $85 seats along with some friends, and stood in line to find out where they would be sitting.

    Miller and her friends said they were happy to be seated anywhere at that price.


    SATISFACTION

    Among the highlights of the evening were the show's opening number "Satisfaction", performed by the UCLA Marching Band and the Stones' rendition of "You Can't Always Get What You Want," accompanied by the Cal State Long Beach Cole Conservatory choir.

    The Rolling Stones last went on tour from 2005 to 2007, playing 144 shows globally and grossing more than $550 million, one of the world's most lucrative tours.

    Guitarist Mick Taylor, who played with the Stones from 1969 to 1974, sat in on Friday to join Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and drummer Charlie Watts during "Midnight Rambler."

    Later this summer, The Rolling Stones will play London's Hyde Park, and for the first time in their career, the Glastonbury music festival in England, both of which sold out.

    The band played a more reasonably priced $20 "surprise" gig in Los Angeles the previous weekend at the 320 person capacity Echoplex club.

    But even fans who coughed up the $600 asking price for the Friday night show seemed to find satisfaction.

    Last I checked the cheapest seats on StubHub in Philly were priced at $280, so that's not happening for me. Glad I saw them in 2005. Of course the date is still a month and a half out so I'd have to think it'll come down as the date draws closer.

    Gwen was fine in No Doubt. But after that it was awful. She really sucks here. Go home Gwen and raise your kid, you are not entertaining.

    Hey Ford, do they ever toss Under My Thumb into the set list? Once in the late 90's I saw them at Qualcomm Stadium and the had an open song spot. The big screens went to a voting webpage and we all got to see what the fans voted on for the free slot on the set list. It was Under My Thumb. So good live. But out of 4 or 5 times I've seen them I think it's the only time they played that song.


    So many songs to choose from that inevitably some classics get left off or else the show would be 6 hours long.

    Under My Thumb was the standard opening number for the entire 1981/82 world tour. I don't think it's been in the regular set list since then, but I'm sure I've heard a more recent version. Probably from one of those internet votes like you mentioned.

    Here's the most recent performance I can find, from the Bridges to Babylon tour in 1997 (Soldier Field, Chicago)

    Ah, finally found the "finished" version of "Strictly Memphis".....

    Why the Hell didn't they release this? It's easily better than 2/3 of Dirty Work!

    Early take of Honky Tonk Women here. Note the different lyrics in the second verse. And this would be before Mick Taylor joined the band and added his part to the solo.

    Moon is up
    The sun is down
    You can't have it both ways round
    Ooh babe, won't you listen to me
    We are worlds apart, you see
    Where are you now
    Crying out loud
    Where did you go
    When I needed you?

    They jammed on something like 12 songs with MT at the rehearsal studio, then only let him play one when they played the Staples Center.

    Keith Urban got up and played a tune with the band, but did not destroy the song like that Gwen bitch did.

    Due to the high prices, they are having bargain basement sales on 85 dollar tickets.

    So many tickets went unsold at the asking price, they dumped thousands of them in L.A. for 85 bucks.
