    I am overcome with apathy.

    Is there a more 60s cliche than a bunch of rock stars opening a boutique on Carnaby Street. albeit over 50 years late?

    No one's gotta go to a pop-up store! You can always get what you want...online.

    For promoting their latest release of the re-mixed & remasterd album of Goats Head Soup....and the whole back catalouge.
    there's also people promoting that business should keep going.
    a slippery slope for sure.

    The caption under the picture in today’s Telegraph announcing the eveNt reads ‘.......Created with Bravado, the shop will sell fashion items and merchandise’. So, there are some fashion items for sale and the rest is, er, stuff for sale?

    I just read Wyman's "Stone Alone" which was exceptional. Also good is Janovitz' "Rocks Off" song-by-song production history.

    Among the things Stu's little gang of ruffians did was evolve rock band arrangement: first with everybody playing different key centers (Satisfaction) employing the Everlies' harmonic stack of IVs.

    Later working sort of on his own Keith uses 5-string tuning to play the IV stack all himself, and employs the Everlies' physical strategy of one guitar capoed, one not.

    Perhaps I have too much time on my hands. Did you ever compare the guitar approach(es) to Jumping Jack Fl between '68 R&R Circus; '70 MTaylor MSG; '81 Ron Wood; and @2000-2010 thumbover? The D over the A only emerges in '70, but MT and KR are still playing the same part, basically.

    I sense potential here...

    My wife came home a minute ago from something in Soho and said "Hey, I walked by the Rolling Stones store. I think today was the opening day. It was totally boring, T-shirts, sweatshirts and water bottles. No cool guitars no fancy outfits." Then I saw this thread going.
