Ticket supplied by Paul Sleet

Black and Blue album was released just before this tour

Yvonne Cleland…  I was in the front row for this gig, even in front of the tightly-linked row of bouncers! I nearly got suffocated, but Mick Jagger leered at me, I swear he did!

Nigel Ford… Perhaps he thought he’d seen a white Marsha Hunt, Yvonne?

Yvonne Cleland… Oi! Cheeky!

John Paul Veness… was at this one too ,still one of the best gigs i’ve ever seen 🙂

Pete Fisher… I went on May 21st, when the only good thing was the Meters as support, and then again at Knebworth in August, where they came on two hours late because they couldn’t wake Keef up, and they were really rough again, but they were both great concerts!!

Yvonne Cleland…I saw them at Knebworth too! Yes, they were! My kids go to Knebworth now, but I think it’s been rebranded as ‘Download’ or something.

Rolling Stones back on the road USA 2015 and what’s your favourite Stones track.

post suggested by Philip John

Alan Esdaile… What’s your favourite Rolling Stones track? Gimme Shelter would be in my top 5 and Sympathy For The Devil, You Can’t Always Get What You Want.

Philip John… Have to agree with you Alan Gimme Shelter would be my number one,It’s only Rock and Roll , Dead Flowers,Fool to cry, Wild Horses,way too many to list.On the subject of music I’d like to recommend The Foo Fighters ‘Sonic Highway’, one of the best rock albums I’ve listened to for a long time and don’t start me on the wonders of the documentary.

Jane Hartley… Dandelion.

Philip John… How could I have forgotten ‘Sympathy for the devil’ fantastic track ! Jane I’ll have to check out Dandelion.
