davebrownbass Posted January 19, 2003 Share Posted January 19, 2003 Not to state the obvious or anything... But I just watched this band you may have heard of...Rolling Stones? Live on HBO from New York. And I really realized just how much of the Stones sound is 2 guys, Ron Woods and Keith Richards, each trying to out-wank each other song after song. And Mick wanks out on the stage at the same time. In the new BP, Darryl Jones describes his gig with the Stones...and talks about how "easy-going" they are about his playing...he is able to leave, to a certain extent, Bill Wyman's lines a bit, and make them his own. He does this with amazing taste live...you never know the bass player is not the original guy, but (because he's Darryl Jones) he can suddenly hold up to the guitar wanks...and occasionally wank a bit himself. And absolutely profound display of professionalism, and a clinic on how to hold a gig!!!!! It all adds up to an amazing package of "grandpa-aged" men rocking convincingly...and at least Charlie Watts is honest enough NOT to dye his hair! (By the way...praise to him to!)

Still spendin' that political capital far faster than I can earn it...stretched way out on a limb here and looking for a better interest rate.
