Stones To Bring back Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor for 50th Anniversary? -- Bernie Mc Dermott, 10:46:21 11/19/11 Sat(cpe-74-68-98-241.nyc.res.rr.com/188.8.131.52)
A friend of mine told me this morning that he heard somewhere That Keith said They Plan to bring them back for their 50th Anniversary.Personally, I dont care, being a Brian Fan, but are they actually going to pay Mick Taylor,who's been living on the dole and playing a pub and has gained a lot of weight? I wonder how he and Bill feel about this. I suppose time will tell. Are they finally going to admit Brian Started the band 50 years ago? I feel sort of sick thinking about this.

An open apology -- Bernard (Sincere), 16:40:32 11/29/11 Tue(93.sub-75-226-145.myvzw.com/220.127.116.11)
A lot of my posts have been full of shit because i said a lot of things I shouldnt have said.Its because of this damn illness which has been bugging me since I was 19. I got relief by denouncing all the things that caused it; my parents, My Catholic Upbringing, Drug and alcohol addiction, Being treated badly by clubs... I have nothing against all The Rolling Stones..Of Course I Still Love Brian, But I also love all of them. So I wish them the greatest Time on the 50th Anniversary since Brian formed the band. So I would like to apologize for not being a bit more civil and serious. I love you all Very Much,and thank you for your kindness and patience over the years. Peace, B-
Wishing all My Stones Alone a "Cosmic Christmas" -- Bernie Mc Dermott (Full of the holiday spirit), 09:53:03 12/04/11 Sun(cpe-74-68-101-2.nyc.res.rr.com/18.104.22.168)
Being as I think of you all the time, I would just like to wish you the happiest holidays..May you get all you want and be surrounded by loving company..You Probably know this but "Cosmic Christmas" was one of the titles considered for "Their Satanic Majesties Request" as well as "Lets all make Love in London Tonight" Either would have been a better title as far as Im concerned, but they had to play along with that "The Beatles are good and the Stones are bad" thing..neither band was perfect. So enjoy yourself. Cheers, Bernie
Brian sighting - another fiction book -- Lazlo, 18:28:11 11/28/11 Mon(adsl-76-248-147-68.dsl.wlfrct.sbcglobal.net/22.214.171.124)
I was doing a little Cyber Monday shopping on Amazon this evening and stumbled over this one and thought I'd pass it on:
I cut and pasted this from Amazon for those who don't feel like clicking the link
The year 1969 was one of the most pivotal years modern history: the first moon landing; Woodstock; the Tate-LaBianca murders; the first trans-Atlantic flight of the Concorde; and the end of the 1960’s revolution on the blood-soaked track of Altamont Speedway in California.
The beginning of this negative synergy was in the form of a body found on the bottom of a swimming pool in southern England on July 3rd. The founder, artistic driver and symbol of the Rolling Stones, Brian Jones, died under mysterious circumstances that night launching a bizarre string of celebrity deaths which included Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison. It also signaled the end of music as an artistic endeavor and ushered in the era of big business.
"Brian Jones’ Diary," explores this transitory time in history through eyes of a rock wannabee named Andrew Widgeon, who just happens to die violently in the midst of playing a Rolling Stone song. A disheartened soul, Andy is propelled to an area between life and death where he comes face-to-face with his idol, Brian Jones, the founder of the Rolling Stones, as well as a gathering of persons who died at the same instant as Jones. The area appears to be a giant holding pen for all the unattained dreams of the 1960’s with young Andy as the reluctant interloper.
I'm not a fiction book guy so I'll pass on this, this looks like a Kindle book anyway. No trees were killed.....
Rock and Roll Is My religion and Brian Is my Patron Saint -- Bernard McDermott (Serious), 19:12:00 11/13/11 Sun(90.sub-75-198-146.myvzw.com/126.96.36.199)
I came to the conclusion a long time ago That Rock and roll is the modern Religion,even though I was reared a Roman Catholic. I believe its a calling in life to be a Rock Musician which I have been since 1969. I believe all true rockers remain 17 no matter how old they become So being That Brian Is my favorite,I now call him my Patron Saint. Also in my pantheon are John Lennon, George Harrison, Florence Ballard, The 4 Tops and James Brown, all who I love dearly. So do what you normally do to enjoy Music and if you get a chance,go to www.myspace.com/bernardmcdermottsreality and listen to what Brian has inspired me to do. Im sure he would have liked it.I cant get any more sincere Than this.Joujouka(good things will come to you)Bernard
Turning Points in Brian's Career -- George (Which one was the biggest?), 14:48:36 10/15/11 Sat(pool-173-67-240-4.rcmdva.fios.verizon.net/188.8.131.52)
There have been countless discussions regarding Brian's various relationships with Mick, Keith, ALO, Allen Klein, Bill and Charlie. Each one had it's up's and down's like a roller coaster. Since I first started reading about Brian I have often wondered which "event or turning point" caused the most harm to Brian in terms of his career with the other Stones.
Could it be the very beginning when Brian first asks Mick and Keith to join "his band"? If Brian never meets Mick and Keith (or asks them to join the band), then who knows, maybe he is still with us today? How about agreeing to sign up with ALO and losing controlling interest of the band's direction? The decision made by ALO to have Mick and Keith write songs (not including Brian)was a big turning point in the band's direction and eventual success. What about ALO deciding to have Mick as the only front man while performing live? Brian had always shared the stage, front and center, with Mick before ALO made that decision. Allan Klein taking over for ALO (you might ask how did this effect Brian)? ABCKO decided Brian was basically not allowed to give any quotes to the press, reporters, magazines etc... that any and all requests to interview the Stones would go through Mick or Keith. Another turning point (or bad one) is Brian never getting any song writing credits... what about the two drug busts? Anita defecting over to Keith breaking up not only their relationship but ending Keith and Brian's as well?
There are so many various turning points in Brian's short (plenty eventful!!)career... so I ask all of you which do you think was the biggest?

Michael Lindsay-Hogg on RRC, 10/26/11 -- Deb, 12:34:51 10/28/11 Fri(adsl-108-90-88-106.dsl.akrnoh.sbcglobal.net/18.104.22.168)
The Museum of the Moving Image (in New York City) presented a rare public screening of “The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus” on October 26, 2011, courtesy of ABKCO Films. Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who directed the concert film, was in attendance and did a Q&A and a meet-and-greet/book signing after the screening:
Stones on Ed Sullivan to Be Released on DVD -- Delilah, 10:12:23 09/12/11 Mon(bas1-montreal47-1242477922.dsl.bell.ca/22.214.171.124) Story.
The complete shows are getting released, which includes all of the other acts which shared the bill with the Stones. I've read elsewhere that even the commercials will be included. This could be fun(ny) the first couple of times, but it's bound to get old very quickly.
Personally, I don't think I'll be buying those. I already have pretty much all of the Ed Sullivan appearances, including the "never released" one from November 23, 1969. I also have rehearsals for Let's Spend the Night Together and Ruby Tuesday, which aren't mentioned at all here. I wonder if they will be included. Maybe as extras? I'm sure Stones fans would be more interested in those than in juggling acts and/or dishwasher commercials.
If anyone here plans on buying these, I hope you'll let us know what you think. Maybe this will be like the Tami Show, which was totally remastered (and which I haven't seen either).
Im so glad this is here, its been too long! -- Bernard McDermott, 23:20:23 10/21/11 Fri(55.sub-75-248-155.myvzw.com/126.96.36.199)
MY dearest fellow "Stones Alone"...I had thought this board had disappeared a long time ago. When I first found it in 1999 I was bleaching my hair,and having a great time being "The Bleach Blond Brian Jones from Bay Ridge Brooklyn"Everything was fine until the tragedy of 9/11,because of which I took a nervous breakdown and attempted suicide. I was hospitalized for a very long time (The only thing worse would have been jail)but now have recovered completely. I feel wonderful and better than ever, so everything is good. In the past few years I have been to Liverpool and London and have visited The Motown historical museum in Detroit (HitsvilleUSA).I have A My Space Page with 4 songs on it,a story and photographs of me now.If you have a spare moment, Id be honored If you would take the time to visit..the URL is www.myspace.com/bernardmcdermottsreality . Id love to put a band together and resume plaaying in public again. God Willing, somehow Ill find some Kindred souls. Some of the names are familiar some are not.This thing used to be a laugh riot. I used to talk to some friends from here on the phone all the time. I hope to get in the swim of things again,have missed this terribly and am so sorry for Gerry. im sure she must be with Brian. I look forward to hearing from all of you. Love and peace, Bernard or as someone once called me "Italian Brian Jones" I had a good laugh at that. God Bless.
Old Gods, -- F.G.W.M. (Stones Stopped Rolling???), 20:50:36 08/23/11 Tue(NoHost/188.8.131.52)
Have the"Rolling Stones" Stopped Rolling? nothing else up their sleeves? Is there just memories? is Mick& Keith for the Nursing home? their last world concert was in 2005-2007,and they had a back up band, to cover for the arthritic Stones. Is the Jig up??? Looking at the World through a Hairy eye.
Gerry and Linda -- Delilah, 16:36:34 10/11/11 Tue(bas4-montrealak-1177936628.dsl.bell.ca/184.108.40.206)
Two very classy ladies left us a little over a year ago, Gerry in September and Linda Zerr about a month later. They are both very much missed. Of course, this board wouldn't even exist were it not for Gerry. And Linda's "wild enthusiasm" for Brian is well remembered by those of us who knew her.
I'm pretty sure this was Linda's favourite photo of Brian. So I'm posting it for her. I apologize for the poor quality of the scan. Miss you Linda!
I'm not sure which photo was Gerry's favourite. I don't remember her ever mentioning it. So I'll post one of mine in her honour. Miss you too Gerry!
Happy Birthday John Lennon -- EL, 18:00:16 10/09/11 Sun(c-24-0-209-143.hsd1.nj.comcast.net/220.127.116.11)
John would have been 71 today; Brian, approaching 70. I remember photos from RS R & R Circus where Brian seemed to be hanging a lot with John and Yoko - one shot I recall he had his arms around John - they were close, and both going through some heavy changes in 1969. Comments, all?
Hey folks! -- Roxanne, 02:47:52 09/07/11 Wed(bn-proxy2.ealing.ukcore.bt.net/18.104.22.168)
Hope you are all well.. I wanted to share with you my new video. Reason: I think you may all like it: when I recorded this song the keyboardist, (The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael), sat in the control room stunned, before he put the keys on. I was laying down the guitar parts, I play them all on this track and am very proud, and he said, "I love it! I feel like it's the Rolling Stones" and then when he put the keys on, he played a very Brian styled piano to go with it all. Plus visually methinks Brian would like the video I just did for it. This is a new remastered version of this song, so I had an excuse to do a video. Shot last week in St Tropez, please watch, hope you like, and if you have facebook, put it on your wall! Brian Jones Lives! (quite obviously here I am proud to say!!!) And I plan to post this on Mick Jaggers facebook wall, just to show him that that is the case. Amen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch4AQN2AkMw
PROUD GALLERY LONDON PRESENTS THE DECCA YEARS -- Roxanne, 01:22:45 09/18/11 Sun(bn-proxy2.ealing.ukcore.bt.net/22.214.171.124)
I was lucky to get invited to the opening of the new photo exhibit, The Decca Years, at Proud Gallery in London. I got invited because of Brian, as a sort of representative of all of YOU and him.
None of the other Stones showed unfortunately.
The pictures were great, so if any of you are in London or coming by soon, definitely go there!
That is the Proud Gallery Chelsea, in London. I met Dominique Tarle, and Gered Mankowitz.
I was annoyed though that while they did play Jumpin Jack Flash at the party it was mainly Exile stuff.... not DECCA... a bit ridiculous. What can we say!
I attach a picture of myself with Gered, a nice guy. I didn't want to talk about Brian with him because he is frequently negative and I didn't want to have to bop him one! Believe me, he knows how I feel.
