My personal opinion is that the classy thing to do upon Charlie's passing, would've been to call it quits.
..I'll post what I like, thank you very much and I explained (my personal reason) in my post above.
Thanks for your input..
This is a drummer-forum and every comment about comparing Jordans playing with Watts and the way they influence the sound of The Stones, or that they sound completely lame most of the time the past 25 years (that Copacabana show and r&b record from a few years ago were nice exceptions), or whatever…..
To assume things of which you know nothing about, to judge how other people have to grief, and to put a very ugly image to Jagger, Richards and all the rest, is nothing but cheap gossip drama..
But yeah, post whatever you like, i just explained my personal opinion on that..
..I posted something brief, someone responded, then you jumped all over it calling my view (which I hadn't properly explained yet) as "crap" without likewise offering anything to the subject matter in hand..
I would too if I had that gig.Going back on topic... Jordan seems to be having a good time lol
You think more than a tiny fraction of the people attending these stadium shows know who the Stones' drummer was or is? Hilarious.I would too if I had that gig.
I'm sure he's smiling through his tears as he probably knows not many in the crowd want him up there. Just like what Brad Gillis went through filling in for Randy on Ozzy's tour.
They tortured that poor guy and he toughed it out. Steve is a great player & has the skill to be there.
I think Charlie himself asked in a 1982 interview why they’re still around. That year the Stones we’re celebrating 20 years as a band and he seemed genuinely surprised that they were still around. What a great down to earth man he was. Too bad there aren’t more like him.Insert caveat:
The video is clearly from a cellphone, and a crappy one at that. How true to what it sounded like in the venue is that video?
I personally think the Stones should have hung it up more than a decade ago, but that's me. It's clear they love performing, so more power to them. I won't part with any of my hard earned dollars to see them though, and I'm a Jordan fan albeit not a Stones fan.
