New York City                 Carnegie Hall                                   June 20, 1964


[New York City, June 20, 1964.]  (Carnegie Hall) was just screaming with kids. We'd almost forgotten what it was like, 'cause we were used to that every night, every time we played (in England), and suddenly (on our first American tour) we were brought down, bang, everybody saying, What a fuckup, we've blown it. America was still very much into Frankie Avalon. There wasn't any thought of long-haired kids, we were just entertainment-business freaks, with long hair, just like a circus show. And we get to New York and suddenly we realize that maybe we... that it's just starting.

[New York City, November 27, 1969.]  (O)ut of the stillness a disembodied cockney voice mused, Everyone seems to be ready, are you ready? Yesss, the crowd answered in a snow-slide's whisper-roar, Yesss. For the first time in 3 years, Sam Cutler said, getting louder, the greatest rock and roll band in the word, the Rolling Stones! The big yellow-blue-white spot bleached out Jagger as he came onstage, twirling overhead his Uncle Sam hat, not smiling, gaze fixed on fate. In a breathless rush of silence the Stones came out, Charlie settling onto the drums, the others, quick and businesslike, plugging their guitars into the amplifiers, twisting dials, setting levels, until Keith hit the opening chords of Jumpin' Jack Flash, Mick started to howl about being born in a crossfire hurricane, and the kids all stood up and screamed.

[New York City, July 26, 1972.]  I'm all against slapstick humor on a Rolling Stones tour. But I mean there was a good excuse for it... the only noticeable point being that with all that crap flying around the stage, I didn't get hit by a single thing if you noticed. We have a film of it. Yeah, I was like... (calmly and menacingly) You dare throw one thing, ONE thing at me, baby, and that's the end of the show. (laughs) And... miraculously all these things flying around and nothing hit me and I was real happy. So I thought it was a great laugh, you know.

[New York City, June 19, 1978.]   I mean, we realized we'd just blown the biggest market in America and played a 3000-seat (laughs) theatre. But that was what we wanted to do and we felt that we needed to do it and that people who dug us would understand it too, you know. I mean, OK, it's a one-shot... We ain't dead yet, we'll be back, you know. We've always been good in the small halls. I mean (laughs), 'cause we did 'em for so long and, I guess, in a way, we kind of tested ourselves by doing it.

[Philadelphia, September 25, 1981.]  Suddenly, they're here. Live. In person. Onstage. They're introduced and it doesn't quite work. It never has. Their stage set, designed in pastel colors and enormous broadly-drawn sketchwork, is a vast cartoon. They're produced out of it like other cartoon characters, not quite real. And you can tell it in the way everyone reacts, the first cheer sounding rock-concert obligatory (Yeah!!! Get it on!), then the second, richer, more thrilling and obviously more deeply felt coming when it was understood exactly who the first cheer was all about (It really it, I mean, it's them, the Stones!). There's the low rumble of Bill Wyman's bass falling down the minor scale ladder of notes beginning Under My Thumb. Keith Richards and Ron Wood ride this bass line down, adding the backbeat, and suddenly there's Jagger, shouting lyrics at the crowd...

                                           RFK Stadium                                             July 4, 1972


[Washington, July 4, 1972.]  Whether it's New York or Tuscaloosa, Norfolk or L.A., one factor is contant: The dressing room of the Rolling Stones is always Groove City - the juice flows, smoke rises, crystals crumble, poppers pop, teenies hang in and Mick knifes through like a ballet-dancing matador... all to the funky wail of Keith's guitar tuning up, and sometimes the honking sax of a solid, down-home pickup sideman, like Texas Bobby Keys. And in Buddha repose, Charlie sits twirling his sticks Sid Catlett-style. Scene of good karma... Outside in the Washington, D.C., stadium, 50 000 fans are stomping it up to the screams of Stevie Wonder... while they wait it out.
- Terry Southern, journalist, 1972
