If it happens,I will buy a gold ticket.
But I think the airport runway will be too small to allow the jet to fly out.

Do I remember Neil ?????????? the local DJ and super mouth doing something similar for, I think, a 70's Stone Tour.
Raised merry hell about a no show and then flew a plane load of locals to Auckland??????????
I was at the Dunedin Town Hall for the 60's Stones Tour when they we second on the bill to Roy Orbison, I think.
Jagger swung the microphone by the cord and the local sound man came on stage and told him off!!!!
Hows your memory Patrick?????

Hi John,

A recently retired local lawyer saw the Beatles in Dn in 64.
But he is the vintage of Earl Kirton & Chris Laidlaw.
You are the first person I have met who saw the Stones in 65.
The early Stones is my favourite.
The La de Das thought the same.
Trivia Quiz...who did Kevin Borich of the La de Das try to look like ?
It must have been a crowded show with four bands,though I assume Ray & The Invaders & The Newbeats would have had short sets.
My parents simply would not have had the mindset to understand the significance of myself attending that show.
Neil Collins is still around.
I was with the local tramping club recently on our way to Wanaka,and who should be at the petrol station in Cromwell but Graham Thorne.
Ex All Blacks and Radio DJ's have no difficulty getting onto councils.
At least the Stones didn't have dreadful things to say about Dn like they did about Gumboot.
At least Dn had lots of private pubs,a good number of them operating at hours outside the law,and I did not realise it actually had the odd nite club or two.
Courtesy of the local entrepeneurial Chinese community.
The Chins still have a presence or two in Rattray Street,and the late Eddie's son Sam,now runs Sammy's in Princes Street.
Last time I was there was to see Bonnie Prince Billy.

As for more trivia,I did not realise that Hubb Kapp & The Wheels were in fact a band called the Defenders from Toowoomba.
http://www.sergent.com.au/music/hubbkapp.html

Finally,never having had the privilege to have seen the Big O in the flesh,I settled for the Eddie Low 2003 tour portraying the O.
What a fantastic show.
If there is a more superlative version of O performing in the world,I would be surprised.

Keith seems confused as to whether gumboot or Dn was the pits,but Mayor Tim puts him right.

http://www.odt.co.nz/your-town/gore/47248/stones-concert-film-may-be-good-real-thing
Here is an ex colleague of mine who saw the Stones in Gumboot in 65.
As you will note from the guitar he was a big Hank Marvin fan and saw Cliff & The Shadows on the Last World Tour,while I was too busy working.
He retired from his joinery business at age 65,and after spending Queens birthday Weekend 2010 judging the Local Gold Guitars competitions,he collapsed and died on 9 June 2010,aged 66.

kevin borich still looks much the same as he did in the la de das era.his son is a fantastic drummer.
at blues on broadbeach last year,was booking into the sofitel at 2pm sat.arvo and kevin borich was playing in the front bar-20 metres away.
we had to write down our names etc because the receptionist could not hear us.
this year same band-same time-same location. kevins son plays with him sometimes.
la de das were a great band...and healing force..another kiwi 70s band.


I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

Patrick,

A bit of a diversion on the main topic.......................
Thanks for putting me right on Neil Collins. He did a lot for local music.
I saw everything in the sixties I could, even went to Christchurch to catch a few that didn't make it to Dunedin.
As well as the beatles and Stones, saw Proby, Pretty Things, Kinks, Who, Swinging Blue Jeans, Jean Pitney, Dave Clark Five, Dusty even Hermans Hermits!!

Outside of the microphone swinging of Jagger that Eric Anderson from Andersons Sound took offence to, Wyman walked the street with a security guards and bought an LP of Maori music from the DIC where I worked. Staff said he smelt but that was the whole long hair, dirty thing in those days.............They didn't think too much of me either to be fair!!!!!

Johnny Mac this will take you back a decade or two.

I had all but forgotten about Little Boy Blue and The Blue Boys.

I have booked some tickets tonight as I think there will be a lot of old fossils emerge from the woodwork to see The Pretty Things.
Zee and I will see you there John.

Thanks for the advice on this Patrick...........I will be there with bells on!!!!
Might even try to find a Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat to wear like Viv Prince wore in his NZ tour......maybe not!!!!

I have the CD box set (three albums) bought it at Mojos in Sydney a few years back............priceless!!!

Steve Miller does a version of Willie Dixon's Pretty Thing on his Let You Hair Down album.........look forward to that at Bluesfest.

John here are some blokes about your vintage.

That 3 cd set sounds excellent value.
I have looked in my cupboard and all I have is the 1967 LP release on Fontana of "Emotions" and the 1976 rerelease on Motown of SF Sorrow/Parachute as a double LP.

As for Viv Prince,at least he moved to a nice climate.

The Stones have in fact announced a 50th anniversary tour however at this stage it is only 4 shows: 2 in London and 2 in New York.
A possibility of a world tour in 2013 exists.

Is it just me or is the new Stones tune actually not half bad?

I will go and see the Stones if they cross the Ditch next year,as I have never seen them.....so long as the venue is not ridiculously large like Western Springs.
The problem with these mega bands is all the junk and hangers on they bring with them....all extra overhead costs which the punter has to pay for.
I see the Pretties have had a couple of shows cancelled in the UK,which is not a good sign,but it is all about paying homage to these industry veterans.

Patrick you would not be disappointed regardless of the venue size.
They are a unique experience.
