[San Diego, October 7, 1981.]  The Stones were anything but weary on their western swing. By all accounts the most professional and calmest of the band's career, the tour has also produced some of the best music the Stones have played onstage in some time - fiery, 2-hour sets that belied early tour reports of shaky performances...

Won't you get hip to this kindly tip

- Route 66


 San Bernardino                      Swing Auditorium                                      June 5, 1964


[San Bernardino, June 5, 1964.]  Actually (our first ever American) gig was in San Bernardino. It was a straight gas, man. They all knew the songs and they were all bopping. It was like being back home. Ah, love these Americans and Route 66 mentioned San Bernardino, so everybody was into it.

[Long Beach, May 16, 1965.]  We tried to get out through a narrow passage. But the kids roared down on us. Without exaggeration there must have been a hundred piled on top of the car and we could hear the roof creaking and cracking. Inside, panicking like mad, we stood up and tried to hold up the roof. But the kids were everywhere. Outside, trying to force the doorhandles, trying to smash in the windows. We couldn't get moving, otherwise someone would have been killed. It was definitely the most frightening thing of my whole life.

[L.A., November 8, 1969.]  Street Fighting Man was the last song. I'll kill the king and rail at all his servants, Mick sang, he and Keith facing Charlie, giving him the boogaloo beat, Charlie pounding it out, the whole place vibrating, Mick running around the stage throwing from a basket rose petals...

The Coliseum, Los Angeles, California, October 1981


[L.A., October 9-11, 1981.]  Prince has to find out what it means to be a prince. That's the trouble with conferring a title on yourself before you've proved it. That was his attitude when he opened for us on the tour, and it was insulting to our audience. You don't try to knock off the headline like that when you're playing a Stones crowd. You'd be much better off just being yourself and protecting that. He's a prince who thinks he's a king already. Good luck to him.
- Keith Richards, 1983, commenting on Prince getting
booed after opening for the Stones in L.A.

(I)t's always slightly more difficult to perform in Los Angeles and New York because the first night there the audience behaves as if it's the first night of the tour, whether it is or not. Each place has its own personality. Small towns get more swept up in the whole event than say a big town like Los Angeles.

[Seattle, June 4, 1972.]  I nearly saw Mick and Keith have a fight in a seafood restaurant in Seattle. Keith was really pissed off 'cause Jagger had thrown this beautiful leather jacket into the audience at the end of the gig. At the dinner table they were yelling across at each other. After that I don't think Keith lent Mick anything to wear onstage.
