      Thank you so much CatsPage and lovely to meet your acquaintance -and yes there is much passion here in your writing which I admire and my favorite Stones experience was the infamous benefit concert they put on in lieu of Keith's drug bust and they had two show in Oshawa in 1978 - my buddy and I went to the afternoon gig and sat 5 rows from the front in a small junior hockey rink and were deaf for the next 2 days and Mick Jagger throw a bucket of water out into the crowd and by that time we were standing right up against the stage and I got soaked. lol That was the Some Girls album tour and sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 8:09pm

      50 years, wow! I saw the Rolling Stones in 1981 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas with ZZ Top and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. What a fun and memorable concert! Those were the days! I enjoyed your review of the Stones' 50th anniversary commemorative book. Looks like it would be a great addition to the coffee table. Voted up and interesting!
