    Too brutal? That’s why up until now it was only on the net with SMU playback slapped over it… up until now…

    Wait, I didn’t see anything but the start of Brown Sugar…

    The sunshine bores the daylights out of me.

    If you wanna see some more of it, watch the Four Flicks Twickers DVD. There’s Amsterdam footage in there. Sans the sound, though…

    That Licks Brown Sugar clip is amazing. Imagine being all ready to run out there and hit the crowd, then you hear THAT? I’d love to see the behind the scenes footage with the opening “Scarf Me Up” riff.

    Satisfaction in Pittsburgh was a good one too. I’ve got video of Mick’s exaggerated shrug somewhere I’ll post later.

    Oh, so the start of Brown Sugar is the clusterf*ck? Hmm…I guess I just don’t consider mess ups at the very beginning that horrible. I had a similar lukewarm reaction to the She’s So Cold video.

    Based on the video, I’d say Mick disagrees with you, OLDSOUL.

    For the sake of balance, I’ll toss in a moment that was the opposite of a clusterf*ck. Raleigh “Out of Control”, with Mick and Keith circling reach other while Keith soloed and Mick played harp. Favorite moment from Zip Code.

    Considering the importance of the intro to the first song of the concert I’d have to disagree with you. That first impression is just as important as the final encore. But in the case of the Stones I’ve noticed that when they do a serious screw up early on, they often go on to do one of the best shows from there on out. Perhaps a bit of a a “jolt them into reality that they have to stay on their toes” sort of thing.

    There has been discussion about whether the treatment Keith gives to the Brown Sugar intro these days has become an intentional inside joke for the band. It’s certainly possible with the long pause Keith sometimes adds. If it is intentional I’m sure the jokes on Jagger and it’s pretty funny actually. I mean the lick isn’t that hard to play, every garage band in America has it down, you’ve got to think that possibly something else is up.

    You have to remember that this is the 2003 Tour. Back then they were out there to prove something, playing lots of small venues and sensational setlist selections. It’s also more about Micks reaction than the actual cockup. He has likely been given a heads-up that Keith and Ronnie were properly baked, he appeared nervous from the start (this show was to come out in DVD form) Keith then managed to surpass his worst expectations. When he holds onto that railing, it looks like “Is it even within my powers to get that back on track?” It’s also not just bad because of the wrong fret, that tiny little helpless “third Intro Chord” gives away that he’s truly out of it. The ensuing silence also makes me believe he heard Mick shouting and got even further confused. Today I believe Naturalust is right, they don’t have to prove anymore and might as well just be messing with us.

    Ok, I never noticed how Mick yells at Keith. Haha I see the clip in a different light now. More than anything, I thought Mick was holding on to the rail to get ready or stretch, but now I see what really happened.

    I don’t get the impression Keith heard Mick yell. I don’t think Mick even yelled, he just did a visual WTF but no one except whoever was backstage and the camera(s) saw him. Mick holding on to the bars of the scaffolding is hilarious: ohmyfuckingfuck it’s so simple what is going ON!!!!!

    That show was disaster-filled but amazing! You might as well post the full show! Can’t wait to see your video, though! 🙂

    How could we forget about this one? Arguably the most epic Mick cockup ever… two times in a row!

    If you take only half an hour to churn out a totally interchangeable set of lyrics, you might end up a singer, missing his cues… hey, hey… you got me gibberish

    Listen to the rest of that gig, you’ll be disappointed by how good they are.

    I’m just gonna repost this because I assume the fact that it wasn’t embedded made people overlook it. If you all are agonizing over false starts and missed cues, you’ll be reaching for a gun, with this one.

    Jesus H. Christ, sounds like they started the after party a little early on that one!
