Mick’s little ‘tits and ass with soul baby’ require minor repairs, he says

Rolling Stone, whom I saw at Candlestick with 10 Gunn classmates and my Dad’s 10 passenger van, in 1982, and for whom I just bought for TMW and I expensive, this-or-Hawaii-package-tour type seats, at Santa Clara 49ers, announced today, and via my brother in law Gary (BILG?) that they are x-lng 29 dates due to an undisclosed illness.

I made up the part about his little tits and ass but that was what popped into my mind, when I heard the news today oh boy. And it is true that certain 70 year old men literally become 15 year old girls at end of life, I know from personal experience. Or figutaritvely so. I come from the old school where there was a distinction; I use Webster’s Ninth semireligously (and problematically believe in the First Amendment, freedom FROM religion semi-religiously).

 

I have a long riff about TJ Kirk, Scott Amendola, The Prodigy which i hope to commit to electorn in time for tonite’s show, as liner-like notes.

I’m exonerating Keith Flint for “smack my bitch up” in the same swoop. I don’t think he was violent but I don’t know. Certainly the song is not violent; it’s a comment on such.

And I think Johnny Who is going to free McG — because he prosecuted Ken Lay. Whose prison nickname and safe word is “free toe”.

 

b/w something in Today’s sunday Chron — signing back on two days later — March 31, 2019, about Taylor Swift concert in Santa Clara, same venue as Stones and they had to paper the second show to the tune of 20,000 tickets and this pissed off the Niners — are they related? I also thought of the three high rollers of tech in Menlo Park about two miles from where I’m settin’ and they keep saying Taylor Swift will play their grand opening — if they build it she will come – but that gets my “shit – detector” or spider sense humming in that they may find there is a difference between a pre-IPO company overpaying someone factor of 3x to play the company picnic/dog and pony show or asking a big act to play for cost at a non-profit venue. Or are they for-profit?

The Stones thing is now reminding me of two more items: one, when the Squirrel Nut Zippers were booked to play Labor Day Monday, 1995 at the Cub but claimed that Jimbo got food poisoning post-show in San Francisco I attended at Cafe DuNord — I still don’t know what to believe, although in real time I borrowed someone’s cell and directed the audience to yell “get well soon jimbo” at whoever answered the phone; or more benignly, Charlie Hunter he of the 8-string Novax guitar and opened a set of shows for U2 not the Stones, with Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprosy aka Michael Franti, switched to a seated position because of the strain of standing with his unusually complicated axe; I can picture the stones’ carrying on, but in chairs; like Blind Boys of Alabama; and I also used to think of Charlie Hunter someday switching to upright bass and only one part not 2.

Come to think of it — and and — I bought for Suzanne Warren, the City’s concert talent buyer a set of Stones tickets circa 1999 but that show similarly was postponed then I guess re-shedded.
