    Nicky Hopkins played most of the keys on exile from Main Street played with JGB in 75. Bad ass stuff. Blows your both the stones and steely dan away.

    Listen to some early 70s live Stones. I remember driving back to Chicago from milwaukee in the mystery machine with a 73 stones show on that blew my mind. Edit: I wasn’t driving. I was riding back laid out on a green velvet couch with my legs propped up. That was a fun ride.

    My two older sisters saw the Stones in Philly in ‘72, third row on the floor. I was ten at the time. My one sister was changed after that show. She bought every album they had and every one that came out. Funny, she was always dancing like Mick Jagger while blaring her stereo. I was force fed Stones music through the bedroom walls.

    no doubt the are Stones one of the greats. A library of epic tunes. I have seen them once (1989) and thought they were not a good live band. Watched plenty of other live performances. Seems like they can't reproduce their sound on stage. For lack of a better term, they sound very empty on-stage and not really together. Probably just me. I will say this about the Stones of the last 20 years....they are caricatures of themselves. I find it odd when you see the aging rock stars trying to act like the same young men they were 50 years ago, instead of allowing themselves to grow into something else...as we all do.

    Stones have some absolutely phenomenal songs. Don’t hate on a man cause he can dance. Beast of Burden Aingie Sympathy for the devil Gimme Shelter I got into with a stones fan though that said they wrote better songs than the dead. I was mindboggled by that opinion. Not one song near the level mountains of moon the eleven Stella. You get the idea. I could go on for awhile. They do however have some damn good songs. I take Stones over Steely Dan admitting I know more Stones than Steely Dan

    I’m not sure it’s too fishy. Though I definitely wouldn’t book flights without some ticket confirmation first. Didnt have much purpose to be on the DSO forums if he lives in Hawaii. Maybe lurk but rarely would be able to catch an actual DSO show. Btw, it’s Bobby’s and Billy’s gig.

    I dunno. Yea, the Stones have plenty of songs that make them fucking awesome. Yea, then what? They tour once every four years at best. Tough to get into them. Maybe if the good old Grateful Dead wasn’t my benchmark. I’ll take the Stones over the Beatles any day.

    I consider 12-16-92 the best show post "medical malfunction 2" as BillK puts it. Just gold from start to finish. Check out Row Jimmy. Casey Jones was the cherry on top. Recommended source? My FOB Schoeps recording. 😊 https://archive.org/details/gd1992-12-16.140956.FOB.Schoeps.Ammons.Noel.t-flac.1648

    I think with Steely Dan it's a case of first was best with Can't Buy a Thrill. But I agree all albums are great. Their sound became increasingly polished with each album, culminating in Gaucho. As for The Stones, Mick Jagger prancing around the stage is something I can live without, but I understand tons of folks feel otherwise.

    To begin with Aja is a masterpiece. I thought about it and did not know were to place it because I played it to death in the early years and I don't select it for play these days. I have this 'condition' with many Stones songs. As a side, this never happens with GD music for obvious reasons. Holy smokes...I forgot about Can't Buy a Thrill. I'm sampling the album now and getting re-acquainted as I type. Tuesday is a long drive day and it will be selected for sure. Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me) is playing right now - what a sweet tune with some nice pedal steel.

    I always got a kick back in the day, when All I listened to was Steely Dan. If I brought it up in conversation or someone would hear me playing it in my car, the uneducated would say ‘I really like him.’

    12/16/92 Oakland Coliseum, Oakland, CA Stranger, Brown-Eyed, Same Thing, Loose Lucy, Memphis, Row Jimmy, Let It Grow. Shakedown>Samson, Ship>Playin'>D>S> Dark Star(v2)>Watchtower>Stella>Good Lovin'. Casey Jones. 4th of 5 in 7 days in Oakland on the comeback trail from medical malfunction 2. The shows had that 'gift of life' tone, but this performance stands slightly above the rest in the run. You can feel the big man's heart through the whole show, which is far from perfect, but perfect in its imperfection. The Casey Jones encore was the only west coast play of the 4 total plays after the breakout in 92, the rafters were shakin' for that one. Praise DSO.

    The Anthem

    yes, I hear you. Point taken. To elaborate, I am talking about how he gave it his all, singing with heart and emotion. Yes, his all towards the end wasn’t much. He probably sucked earlier and later that same night, but, for me, that song (Visions) , that night, was him saying goodbye. I could talk for a long time about the effect the late second set Jerry ballads had on my entire Grateful Dead live experiences.it was why I kept going to shows after Hornsby bailed. For that moment when he showed us his old self. Keep in mind, one of the facets of the sixties ‘revolution’ was better living through chemistry’. The Grateful Dead was somewhat based in that thinking. They rode that wave for a while. I think Jerry was the epitome of that thinking. That logic didn’t work. That facet of the sixties was a failure. Jerry is Proof. Ultimately, it shortened his life. I’m going to a memorial gathering later today for my ex brother in law. He just passed, three years younger than me. He smoked like a chimney and drank like a fish. Regardless, he was a fellow human being. I am going to speak to the younger people there about the need to take care of themselves, mind, body, and spirit. I have been on this planet long enough to know that life has a way of catching up With us. I would love to see the ones after me nail the dismount, even though I won’t be around to see it.
