"Weekend at Bernie's" starring Keith Richards? Who would know?

Not to get too far off topic but; DW won free tickets last year to see Rod Stewart and Santana. Stewart was the headliner. Santana played first and the group was fantastic. Carlos knew what he could and could not sing. He passed the torch to others, and the music was great. Stewart was not so good.

WRT to "Keif" - a roadie brings him out a new guitar at the end of every song open-tuned to the next song.....

Saw them for their Goodbye tour in '75. Great show then, but think I'll pass this time around.

I saw them in the early 90's and wondered if they were too old to be touring back then.

I think they give new meaning to late retirement.

If you think Keith Richards is bad you should watch the latest Tom Petty concert.

Kiss and the Rolling Stones are the most overrated bands of the last 50 years. I'd rather listen to the 8 productive years of Led Zeppelin than 40 years of these bands. AC/DC still knows how to rock. Granted they are a one trick pony but they do it so well.

I have stated before that I've mostly stopped doing classic rock shows. I think many bands are "only in it for the money", or are too narcissistic and/or tone-deaf to realize how subpar they are...

Hard for me to criticize the Stones; what a catalog of songs.

But Kiss? Ewww...

Ditto Bonnaroo.
...
Sons have done Bonnaroo (and burning man). We (aka "DW") figure that with nice RV and the special up-front parking area for them in Manchester, we will do Bonnaroo at least once post-retirement. No longer up for sleeping under the truck as one son did (and, he saved money by not paying for a shower....). OTOH, Burning Man will require me to find someone else to attend with--she is not going to sit out in the sandstorms and interact with the many trippers....

Few years ago, my neighbors' son drove from Chicago area to Burning Man. His car took quite a beating. They were cleaning grit/sand out of it for few yrs. afterward.

Went ahead and purchased at ticket master. Didn't know that my AMEX let us purchase them a week before everyone else! Another benefit.

Daughter and Son-in-law bought 3 tickets ($77 each) for the Indianapolis concert on Saturday, July 4th. Concert will be at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway which is 4 1/2 miles from my house. They've offered me the 3rd ticket for free, but I'll probably pass. Local music critics are already calling it the worst venue ever. Just don't like the large crowds anymore.

Often get asked if I'm going to see (whatever old rock band is in town), and I say: "Bought their records and supported them all of their lives; don't feel like contributing to their retirement fund".
