Not really into them but enjoyed the set more than I thought I would.

I enjoyed it, but I did wonder how much of the sound was actually being generated by the band members. Good to see Mick Taylor on stage again, and Mick is still an incredible performer.

Best for me was '2000 Light Years From Home'.

When i first switched on they looked like they were dialling it in, apart from Mick. They picked up towards the end though. All a bit "meh".

That thought did cross my mind as they were very tight. I'm not really that knowledgeable about the stones back catalogue but 2000 light years from home was excellent, first time I've heard it.

Great set!.   Jagger is  69 I think and Charlie Watts is 72.    Mick need to look out for osteoporosis!  But boy can he move...in all directions at once, as he always has. 

 

Keith Richards......did he really know what was going on?

That reminds me of the last big Aid concert were Robbie Williams was put on as the big act before the Who, the Who came on and made him look Karioki (sp?), then Pink Floyd came on and made The Who look like they were rehearsing.

If  I was putting a rock n roll band together Charlie Watts woulkd be the first name on the list even now

Wood and Richards lacked any kind of dynamic and no longer contibute backing vocals

The bass player drove them along well but then he better had

Jagger has still got the moves but his voice sounded thin and would have soundewd nthinner without those superb backing singers.

 

To be fair I'm not a fan of festivals. I'd rarther see a band in a boozer or a club

Haven't caught much of Glastonbury on telly but the Arctic Monkeys were excellent on Friday night as was a band of 15 year olds from Ireland whose name escapes me who played the John Peel stage.

I went to see The Who last night, and for a pair of blokes pushing 70 (Pete is 68 & Roger 69), they definitely still have 'it'. Both have presence, charisma and, most impotently, good, strong singing voices (in Pete Townshend's case, you could argue his voice is better now than it was 20 or 30 years ago. Stronger). 

 

Unfortunately I missed the Stones and forgot to record it. :(

Pah, Kenny Rogers showed them all how it's done yesterday, the man's a legend.

A good mate of mine had overall responsibility for the main stage at Glastonbury. He's seen thousands of gigs over the years and he said The Stones' performance was one of the best gigs he'd ever seen.

 

Believe me, that's high praise.

When was the last time they issued a decent album?

 

The Stones have become their own Tribute Band, which is not to say that they aren't a brilliant live act.

 

I saw them at Roundhay years ago and, having seen them once, have had no great urge to go and see them again.

 

Mick Jagger is 70 this month.

Same here, although I saw them at Main Road in 1990.

I enjoyed the Glastonbury set. I'd go to see them just because they are the Rolling Stones. Not that I could afford a ticket.

 

Does it really matter when they last put out a decent album with the gold standard back catalogue they've got to draw on?

 

And who goes to see a band like that to hear the new stuff anyway? In my experience, 'here's one from the new album' always sparks a surge for the bar or the toilets. Just play the goddamn hits! :)

 

I'd hope to be as agile as Mick Jagger when I reach 70, but I'm not even that agile now. Fair play to him, I say.
