    …what a shame they saw fit to ignore the pleas of lifelong fans and play for the zionist regieme in Tel Aviv…just shows there is no such thing as too much or how low some people are prepared to sink for money…

      I had to look that up. I didn’t realise musicians were boycotting Israel.

          His son is younger than his great-granddaughter, he needs to hang to his few bob :)

    Percussion is music, so this is not silent music.
    Also, anyone who frequented Freebird on Eden Quay knows the artists that the Stones ripped off; Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino et al. Still great though.

      To begin with, absolutely but I think from Aftermath (’66?) onwards they were their own men.

        You’re not wrong. I once asked Mama Hoop who she leaned towards in the 60s while she was swinging it in London in her youth…..Beatles or Stones?
        Answer: Lonnie Donegan.

          Mammy Blenkinsop saw The Stones in The Adelphi in 1965, still has the ticket stub as well.
          She was very cool was my Ma, obviously it skips a generation :D

            I hope you flog that ticket on eBay and take her to dinner.
            I understood Mama Hoop’s edgy music choice with Donegan when she called me up after an illegal rave in England and asked ‘Blur or Oasis’. I croaked “Primal Scream” and she went away with that happily.

            Barely on topic but I saw Kasabian described as “Primark Scream” the other day which I thought was brilliant:)
