Here'a question for the room. It was just confirmed yesterday that the Rolling Stones will be making a stop here in lil' ol' Buttkick this October.
Now, I saw the Stones down in Boulder, Colorado on their Tattoo You tour in 1981. My fav band at the time. 85,000 people. Heart and George Thorogood were the warmups. Great seats. Amazing experience. October 4th, 1981.
And now, 25 years (holy shit, I can't believe I wrote that) later...
So the question is...should I go? Part of me thinks I have to (and take my oldest daughter or something), but another part of me wants to preserve that special memory of the show in '81. Lest we not forget these guys are in their 60's now...and decent tickets are running anywhere from 300.00 - 550.00 per seat...so I am presently sitting on the fence.
SONG & ARTIST? - "I've been waiting in the hall
Been waiting on your call
When the phone rings
It's just some friends of mine that say,
"Hey, what's the matter man?
We're gonna come around at twelve
With some Puerto Rican girls
that are just dyin' to meet you.
We're gonna bring a case of wine
Hey, let's go mess and fool around
You know, like we used to."
