The Stones six stories high - wow

I saw the Rollings Stones new movie, "Shine a Light" at the Air and Space Museum IMAX theater last night - awesome. It is a very good rockumentary, beautifully filmed by Martin Scorcese. The bulk of it is the Stones performing at a fund raiser in the Beacon Theater in New York City - Bill Clinton introduces them. If you like the Stones, you will like this show. If you can see it in IMAX do so. Keith Richards six stories high is a sight to behold (there is a pun in that line )

LOL! I once heard Richards described as the "Wiley Coyote of Rock."

I realize that this is arcane trivia for the non-axe types out there, but:

Keith only uses 5 strings.

This rockumentary about The Rolling Stones had more than high marks from the reviewer with The Wall Street Journal. I only remembered to read it, because one of the guys I swim with who's 54 going on 19 and has a rock band could not wait to see it; so, I read the review. Personally, I am a mediocre Stones fan, but did hear rave reviews also in the pool yesterday.
But, if you want to talk Eric Clapton now......yeah, buddy!
