    love and hate are right around the corner from each other...

    when either one of em "goes" we'll find out how the other really feels, and i think i know the answer to that one. theyve been through A LOT TOGETHER.

    I read that Mick MUST leave the stage when Keith is doing his nightly two songs.
    It's in the tour contract since they got back together since 1989.

    I hope the book talks about the royalties that the various members like Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman recieved.

    Keef and Mick have been together longer than most married couples...so it's the ideal love/hate relationship: they may hate each other but they love the money!

    I think that's more because neither of them would have done very well if they weren't 'Stones'.

    I read an excerpt on Rolling Stone's website. This report here seems to be skewing the facts a little. Keith said Mick's unbearable, but that he is himself too; hell everyone is at some point.

    Knowing Mick to be the showman, salesman, and everything but a carny, it wouldn't shock me if Mick told Keith to write anything he wanted - true or not - to sell a book.

    No such thing as bad publicity.

    Thank you for your contribution.

    Cha-ching.

    Ha! This from a man who probably prefers Linda Ronstadt's version of "Tumbling Dice." How am I supposed to trust your judgment?

    Mick was not born with the greatest instrument, but it's hard to match the character and emotion he brings to songs. And if you look at his live performances over the last sixteen years, you see some amazing performances, both vocally and physically. I challenge anyone to run around like he does for 2.5 hours and sing like that.

    Here's a performance of "Out of Control" from 1997 that I really like:

    I could see how Mick could get annoying. I don't think Keith needs to make up this crap to sell a book. It doesn't change the fact that there is no rolling stones without either of them and Mick is a great frontman.

    Fanbois could easily levitate the Titanic.

    If they had, it might not've sunk.

    Hey, the Stones are great. They're also having you, and your money, five ways from Sunday.

    Playing you like a cheap fiddle. Prove me wrong.

    They don't have anything in common except the Rolling Stones. They don't hang out together. Even on tour or recording, they don't really spend much time together and haven't in years.

    There wasn't much on Charlie Watts in "Under Their Thumbs". He was quiet and reserved. The author couldn't tell at times if Charlie did or didn't like him.
    But Keef and Ronnie love Charlie...and I think Mick does too. When Charlie would do his jazz shows Mick would avoid them while Keef and Ronnie would attend to lend moral support.

    They make me happy and they don't get much of my money, other than for new albums and I enjoy them immensely. I don't think I'm being played. And those who actually still go to the shows, they get a show, unlike, say, Dylan fans, who are merely treated to a strange, sad spectacle.

    Mediocre is a better way to describe it.

    Bands stay together to prove it can be done - or when the members can't see anything else more appealing on the horizon.

    The real cold truth is, after Jumping Jack Flash, we ain't got to much to cheer about. I will admit I was smitten hard and then one day I wasn't anymore, but the later music just lacks something it should have if we're to be talking about it in 150 years.

    Really, after the first album it's all downhill.

    Funny, that's the same thing people were saying in 1989. It's fun to watch the Stones, even this aged version of them. They don't have to go out anymore, they want to.

    The part I find funny about the upcoming Keith Richards book "Life" is that Mick read it and of all the decadent, devious things they've probably done over the years the only thing Mick asked Keith to take out was mentioning the fact that Mick uses a vocal coach.

    Yeh Boris, you are caught on that one.:lol:
    ""Jumpin' Jack Flash" is a song by English rock and roll band The Rolling Stones, released as a single in 1968." Quote and Unquote.

    If you seriously believe (and I'm hoping you were kidding) that JJF was the last thing Stones did of value to you, then I must respectfully ask:
    WTF planet have you been on?
