: Yes! I've been here since Day One and I never heard that story! Excellent escapade!

Thanks FB, I perfer the word "escapade" as it summed up not only that nite but also my teen years to a tee. But its funny, I almost didn't post that story last nite course I though I wrote about it at our old board. But since you were there and don't remember it, guess I didn't.

: I JUST missed it - as I've mentioned many times, '75 was my first time, and there's a world of difference between '72 and '75.

Yeah. Not that there was anything wrong when I saw them in '75 but in '72 they were different and better.

:Of course, they didn't have quite as much history dragging around behind them. Part of the thrill of seeing them is realizing (as I always do at some point) that they're the same people I've been reading about and studying and idolizing almost my whole life. In '72 they were still laying the groundwork.

Yes and no. They were to a point still laying the groundwork for today, but you got to realize in '72 that they may have still been a young band (age wise) - but they were an old rock band already, for that time period. Lets face it, in '72 there were very few rock bands that were around as long as the Stones had been. That in itself was as big news in '72 as it is today. Funny but by '72 the rumors about how much longer the Stones would stay together were just like it is today. Rock bands just weren't supposed to last that long back then and the Stones were the exception to the rule. They also were already big time news by then and had been for years. The NYC TV stations made their '72 MSG shows top lead off news stories. Mick's birthday party a few days later was the talk of the town and the place to be. Every newspaper had a big story about it.
