THE ROLLING STONE- "50 & COUNTING" TOUR
In 1981, the Rolling Stones were gearing up for their highly anticipated tour to back the album Tattoo You. This being the first time the Stones hit the road since the Some Girls tour in ‘78, fans all over the country were foaming at the mouth to see the greatest rock and roll band live on stage. Jagger was quoted as saying, I’d rather be dead than sing ‘Satisfaction’ when I’m 45.” As a 69-year-old Jagger joined his band to culminate their “50 Years and Counting” tour, it’s hard not to smile.

EVERCLEAR & EVE 6 ROCK THANKSGIVING WEEKEND
Many people go out to the bars on the day before thanksgiving and get hammered to the point where they can relax on the couch the next day until its time to feast. I, on the other hand, went to see Everclear and Eve 6 at the City National Grove of Anaheim. Its been so long since I've listened to both these bands, but I was extremely excited to see them after all these years.
