Don Was

When the Stones performed their Super Bowl Halftime Show back in 2006, I thought they were great BUT Ronnie's guitar couldn't be heard for the first couple of minutes. Boy was I pissed.

It affected their overall sound. In fact, about a minute into the performance Ronnie said something to Keith, with Ronnie's facial contortion looking like he was saying, "Why isn't my guitar plugged in!"

Then when the second guitar finally came through (albeit punctuated for about another minute) man they sounded great. I thought at first it might have been my living-room TV's fault because it was still an analog TV. Most people had digital by then. But it wasn't.

Well somebody recently told me that Don Was was interviewed on an internet podcast, and he explained it. He said the Stones were the ONLY Super Bowl act to play FULLY LIVE, and are still the only ones. 100% LIVE. He also explained about the guitar not coming through.

Here is the podcast: WTF Mark Maron Podcast #884 and for the Stones part of the interview, forward it to the 1:12:50 mark, although the whole interview is highly enjoyable.

Both Don Was and the host Mark Maron said very complimentary things about our boys.

Please, if you get a chance, please check out at least the Stones part of the podcast. Don Was goes deep on how "Blue and Lonesome" came about, says a lot of deep stuff about our Stones, as musicians and as people. Very impressive. I guarantee you'll love it. 😍😍😍
