Mobile Monday - The Stones

By GeorgeP
The Rolling Stones put on an amazing show in Houston last Saturday night. They presented over two hours of non-stop music and movement – and they are older than I am. I was impressed and amazed. The acoustics (and seating) at NRG Stadium might not be the best but everyone knew the words and the music so distortion really didn’t matter. The guitar riffs were still fabulous and Mick Jagger still has all the moves.

The oldies took me back to summer of 1965 when I quit accountancy to become a lay-about and farm labourer picking plums and black-currants outside Cheltenham before joining BP and the oil industry. It was surreal.

There's always a rule that amounts to 'no cameras!' There'd be a riot if they tried to ban mobiles...

Not quite the “nose bleed” section - but getting pretty close!

Not a Rolling Stones fan, but a great capture here, George, especially with the iPhone 👍 It bugs me that 'proper' cameras are banned at these events, yet camera phones, which can take almost equally good images, aren't 😡

A great capture of a great band. I first saw the Stones in Edinburgh, 1966. I was still at school, they were just out of it (school, I mean Wink). I couldn't hear a damned thing for all the screaming, but who cared - they probably couldn't play all that well in those days anyway.

Notice Keith Richards not wearing a hat on this tour ....showing his bald palette which certainly ages him.
Can play like he is twenty years old though . Good cell shot George

Lucky man GeorgeSmile
One brother missed them in Munich, when the show was cancelled but my other brother (ex oil industry, Mobil) saw them in the "Big Easy" round about the same time as this.
He said looking at them, he didn't know they were still alive Smile but their performance was incredible.
The lead image for me.
Have a "30" on meSmile
