: : Hello Everyone!
: : Last week we were all talking about our 1981 Still Life Tour memories and BESIDES "That Hindu guy stole my coke" I just remembered something else:
: : While we were waiting in line at 3:00 a.m. (For you youngsters out there this was back in the day seats were rarely reserved. It was something called "General Seating" get a spot and hang on to it.) Anyway while in line at 3:00 a.m. besides making everyone sit down in line to prevent line jumping they also passed out to us these Rolling Stones Comic Books that were printed on newsprint and were black and white. I still have mine in my "vault" If I remember it was similar to those government "woodsy the owl" or "McGruff the crime dog" comics they pass out in grade schools to entertain with a message etc. I remember the Stones comic had a character as your host/guide as to what was "cool" to do and "not cool" to do at the stones gig you were about to attend. It was maybe 15 pages? Was San Francisco the only city on the tour to receive this comic book? I would think surely there had to be other cities? Any comments? Later, Jimmy.
: My group got to the Philly show pretty late but as I recall the seating, it was assigned in the stands. We got there at about 1PM & the first act went on at about 2PM. It was my first Stones show & just an incredible day.
~Don't remember any comic books, was at the 1st JFK stadium show in Philly. Sept. 18,(if I remember correctly). Got there about 10 am had field seating(sat on field, until it got to crowded than stood the rest of the day). Were pretty close to front of stage, about 8-10 rows.It was a long, hot Sept.day, but worth the wait. 1st and only time, to see Stones after being a fan since I was a young kid. Was only 18, all the Stones were great, and a good show, but Keith is the one I remember most. He was so happy. Keith was just totally into his music and I loved him for that!
