    This band seems to keep KR interested a lot more than his OTHER big name group...Great live band, Waddy Wachtel on the Strat...

    I had the good fortune to be at that show, at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, on a very cold February night, 1993. Definitely one of my all time favorite concerts.

    That Eileen performance is Keith. The guitar sound, the playing style, the singing, the moves, the attitude, it's all there in one song.

    Probably my favorite all time band lineup.

    'Hate it when you leave' and ' 999 ' are standouts.

    I was at that show up in the balcony and that balcony was BOUNCING. Killer show. Steve Jordan on drums: ferocious. I have a bootleg DVD of that show I picked up somewhere and it was definitely as good as we remember it.

    Love it when we get one of those "I was at that show" posts. Or two.

    I love Keith, but that song is boring. Needs Mick to stick some Mick parts in there in between the Keith parts.

    That said, I kinda wish we'd gotten more solo stuff out of both Mick and Keith over the years. I'm not that familiar with Mick's, but I know he put it out during the 80s, the absolute worst time for a guy who's trying to make his stuff sound current to put out solo stuff.

    I really like Mick's first two solo albums. I feel they've been unfairly maligned. It's so much kewler to champion Keith.

    I enjoyed Keith's first solo album, "Talk is Cheap," but I think he ran out of creative gas by solo album number two. Even on the first, the songs don't feel completely formed. They're riffs with ideas that aren't fully fleshed-out. Mick knows how to finish a song.

    Interesting point about it being way cooler to champion Keith. I do love Keith, but you're right, for a number of reasons that I don't want to get too far into, it isn't quite as ok to be really into Mick, I suppose mostly because he sings and dances, but Mick is a great song writer, lyricist and he loves and champions the blues just as much as Keith. And there's this little video, which is probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen-

    I like the blues album Mick did with the Red Devils.

    I'm in sorta in both camps.
    yeah, Keith leaves songs dripping with blood, like a rare steak, while Mick puts on some sugar bombs ontop of the icing of the sweetest, tooth akin cake.
    more often, its best when raw and sweet meet -- in The Rolling Stones.

    Thing was Keef was under obligation to keep the fleshed out stuff stones only. It was also ran by design.
    Obligation, or litigation. Mick was ready to sue.
    That being said Winos are perhaps the best example of what rock is about.
    Not to pensive, not to plush. Mash the pedal and throw the mirror out the window.

    1988, Aragon, Chicago...what a concert!

    FWIW, I'm ok with Mick's stuff. His first two did receive heavy rotation at my place.
