You Can't Always Get What You Want

Well, no.

But the Stones in Rio are live on AOL. And I had to drag my miserable flu-ridden self downstairs for a minute so I'm watching.

Honky Tonk Woman.

Start It Up.

Sympathy for the Devil.

Brown Sugar.

You Can't Always Get What You Want.

The world sure has changed since those guys in suits were prohibited from singing the last one on The Ed Sullivan Show, when I was about 13 and in Catholic school! The sexual awakening of an entire generation ~

And yes, Keith Richards does look dead. But they really are great.

Satisfaction -- the concert must be about over.

I'd forgotten that AOL was showing that. I'd planned to to watch it. Hope you're feeling better soon.

oh no...i'm so sorry you're sick.

Tess said...

LOL, Kieth always looked dead. Hope you feel better soon!!!

Vicky said...

Glad you got to see them, even though you are still sick - sorry to hear that part.

I turned forty at a Stones concert. Rock on!

Love, Vicky

We watched The Stones during Super Bowl halftime. My children were apalled at those old guys!

I agree with Tess -- Keith always looked dead but I liked him best anyway. I missed this show but do remember the Ed Sullivan show and a few others which I was fortunate enough to attend.

I am sorry you were riddled with the flu while you watched The Stones. Hard to believe how long they have entertained the different generations. I saw them when they played with Kansas. Great show.

Now, get yourself some chicky noodle soup and get well soon!
