    I was eighteen with Mk IX Jag.....happy days...they were and still are a million times better than the Beatles.

    I was racing at the Pod back in the nineties when the crew guy from the previous car to run points up to the VIP balcony, Mick Jagger (or so he said, I once saw Elvis at a thousand foot but that's another story).

    Congratulations Rolling Stones, thanks for 'Out of time', 'Satisfaction', Paint it Black', 'Under my Thumb', 'Play with Fire', 'Ruby Tuesday', 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' etc., etc.

    October 2nd 1963 - saw the Stones at the Edmonton Regal... I was 11. Absolutely amazing and formed my whole interest in music for the rest of my life. I still have the tickets and a poster I bought.

    & yes, I am an old git

    There are some compensations to age, not many but some. I saw the Rolling Stones at the free concert in Hyde Park, I saw Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran live, not many young people can say that......LOL

    were great in the 60s...pretty good in the 70s....loosing it in the 80s......lost it in the 90s........just shut up in the 2000s and please god no more in 2013.....There's a point in every band/singers life when being a teenage rebel just becomes embarassing and they look like your dad/grandad dancing, slightly ****ed at a wedding......and that point was 20 odd years ago......I have great respect for them for the early stuff but please just stop...it's not like they need the money is it?

    July 5th 1969 (I think) Rog. I was 15 at the time and Mum and Dad would have grounded me if they realised where me and my mates had gone.

    Can't match Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran though.

    Saw Hawkwind at the IoW festival and played support to some upcoming rockabilly band called 'Shakin Stevens and the Sunsets' at the Cirius Club in Southgate in 1971.

    It's pretty hard to remember how rebellious it all was at the time. Nice to go back down memory lane though.

    I'd really like to see a massive group like the Stones going back to their roots and play some small club gigs. It would be good to see how they'd connect with an audience up close without the safety net of a massive stage, video screens and all the other paraphernalia that surrounds big stadium acts and separates them from the fans. They don't need the money from touring these days so they could do this just for the hell of it if they had the guts for it.

    I wouldn't call myself really a fan of the band but they did make some good songs for their first decade at least.

    Paul McCartney did it a few years back. Local low key gigs. No promotion. If you were there it was your good luck. Robert Plant has been known to turn up and jam in his neck of the woods at local gigs.

    ****, just checked and it was 1999!!!

    Look for the album 'Run Devil Run'.
