Rolling Stones Oral History Project
The Stones have their place in history assured, but we the fans do not. This is a place dedicated to making sure Gasland's many stories are not lost, or at least lost in the board's giant archives.
The Gas Gas Gas Message Board has tens of thousands of stories dating back to 1998. Here is a link to its history. The purpose of Let It Loose is to collect and catalogue Gaslanders stories. We also welcome new posts. If you have a post you want included in this page, please email it to this address. The individual sections of the project are read only.
Keno has taken measures to guarantee Gasland will be around for a long time to come. Libraries accept oral histories. I will contribute the content of this project to Rutgers University Library for preservation at appropriate intervals. If you have a story to tell, you can tell it HERE.

Every Stonesfan loves reminiscing about his or her
first show. We all share that in common. This section is for descriptions of first
Virtually all Stonesfans have a favorite show or tour. This section
contains memories of concerts other than the first show. Every post will be about
experiences at a Stones show.
This section contains anecdotes of unique characters encountered by
Stonesfans. Some are about people met while partying at shows or clubs. Others are about
people such as friends, family, or lovers. The people connected to Stonesfans lives
are part of the story. Posts about the people who populate the Stones scene are placed
This section is for posts of people sharing memories of their Stonesfan
experiences like road trips, brushes with the law, scoring tickets and dope, pre- and
post-show parties. Any post that is similar to the type of tale told to friends while
reminiscing about the Stones will be placed here.
It is a Gasland tradition to describe a remarkable post as
Gassy. Some of these Gassy posts are too good to let be lost in the archives.
This section contains posts that can be about anything, including off topic posts (NSC).
Plus, not all of these post are positive or even pro Stones. Some were started out by
non-fans - as put downs of the band or of their fans, yet in the way they were written, or
in the way the Gassers responded, they became Gassy material anyway.
Note: Not include in the chapters
above, but an event that should not go unmentioned, was the events of 9-11. All of the
Gassers lived through that sad day, like everybody else, so I will provide a link back to the
first post made about that day as it was taking place. But there are many other 9-11
posts that are not listed, so after reading that first thread, use the archive box that
you will see and please just go back to the month of September, 2001, where I suggest you
read not only all the posts for 9-11, but for 9-12, too, since it was a two day event
where nothing but non-Stones posts were made in Gasland, a event I hope will never happen
