:I saw them at JFK.
I was at that show as well.
Slept through most of Journey's set, but woke up in time to hear Steve Perry thank the crowd for
"making us America's Number One Band !"
The wait for the Stones was interminable,
but when Bill Graham bellowed "Thank you very
very much for waiting Philadelphia, would you
welcome please, THE ROLLING STONES !!" and they launched into Under My Thumb, all was forgiven.
Hard to believe, but prior to the show my friends
and I had been talking about songs we wanted to
hear, and UMT was my choice.
"Nah" was the prevailing opinion.
Lotsa whooping and high fives all around when
it turned out to be the opening tune !
Great day, great show.
Thanks for the flashback.
