[Montreal, June 30, 1966.]  It was unbelievable. We've never seen anything like it before. I was disgusted. There were about 30 bouncers when we appeared - all of them huge blokes, wrestlers, I think. They were punching people for no reason at all and then throwing them out. One fight broke out at the front of the theatre while we were playing and 6 of the chaps set on one kid. It was terrible. It was going on in front of 12 000 people, too. In the end we stopped playing because the fans were booing and hissing and pointing at the bouncers. We joined in - and after the show, had to run for our lives because the wrestlers tried to get up on the stage after us. I was scared out of my life. I thought we were going to get it that time.

[Oshawa, April 22, 1979.]  Man, I'm not just here on an ego trip or because I'm a groupie. I love these guys. They believe in what they're doing. And I want to be with 'em because of that. I love them because they're a lousy rock and roll band. Who the hell wans to listen to Emerson, Lake and Palmer?

One night we were bored in Toronto. So Keith and I got out the Yellow Pages and looked up escort services. We called up an agency telling them we were two businessmen dealing insurance from Omaha in town for a convention (laughs). We said we needed two lady escorts for dinner. We told them to send over two of their finest. We even taped the conversation. These chicks show up expecting guys in 3-piece business suits. When they saw us they were taken aback. It ended up as a mild evening of lightweight debauchery.

El Mocambo Club, Toronto, Ontario, March 1977


[Toronto, March 5, 1977.]  (Keith) was hollow-cheeked, unshaven, gaunt, and he was so almost translucently pale that you automatically wondered how many years it had been since Mr. Sun had shined down on him. He smiled beatifically, though... A version of Muddy Wates' Mannish Boy, with its signature lyric of I'm a rolling stone, was as rock-bottom raunchy as anything the Stones have ever done... (E)ven Mick Jagger, middle-class and socially grasping as he was, had the lungs and the soul to out-soul many brothers. And Keith Richards, who had no blood in his veins anymore and whose soul had been stained blacker than black many years before by the same spirits that annointed the legendary Robert Johnson, glowed with an internal combustion that I'm not sure any scientist in the Western world could identify. Or would want to. And if there was any possibility that this could have been the last Rolling Stones concert ever, Keith reached into his back pocket or somewhere for licks and notes he surely had not hit in years and in Jumpin' Jack Flash he seemed to have transcended his smack addiction and sounded again as if he was wired directly into some pulsating black hole in space. He played good is what I mean to say and when Keith is on, ain't nobody can touch him.

[Vancouver, July 19, 1966.]  Thirty-six teenagers were carried from an auditorium here Tuesday ater a disturbance broke out during a performance by the British rock and roll musical group the Rolling Stones. Eleven youngsters were held in temporary custody in a detention room at the Pacific National Exhibition Forum during the show. Two were charged with being drunk. Police said a policeman was kicked in the groin, an usher suffered a concussion when hit by a youth, a policewoman collapsed from exhaustion and a youth suffered a broken ankle during the show. Officers said a number of hysterical girls had to be carried over a riot fence between the audience and the performers.
