    Hello everyone,
    my name is Nikkei Janssen, I am from Bremen, Germany and the year 1988. I have been a fan since the age of 10, when I saw my first show in Stuttgart. I have seen them a total of 9 times since then and remain confident to reach double figures. You’ll find me listening to almost anything Stones, really. In my opinion their latter records do not suck for the most part. Besides the Stones, I am heavily into the Floyd, Tull, Zeppelin just to name some. Current music is interesting to me depending on circumstances. Meet me on the Keith Side!

    Love that photo brother!

    I’ll update this sometime in the future.  Hardcore fans since age 4.  Seen them 14 times since 1997.  Love listening to audience recordings on a regular basis.

    I started this forum so that we’d all have a nice place to talk about the Stones without fear of a heavy-handed moderator.

    It’s good to be here, its good to be anywhere!

    I’m Breath.  All my closest Stones friends are also named Breath.  We forget how this came to be.

    I’ve been a fan since I heard Angie playing at the Lane County Fair in the summer of 1976.  Seen ’em 33 1/3 times since. My next show will be when they announce an all Chuck Berry setlist. Can’t wait.

    Hey – Mr. Bremen – the Stones broadcast a cool show from there on my b-day in 1998…only problem, much like the ppv from saint looey in 1997 – they didn’t do Queenie on the b-stage but instead did the MUCH inferior IORR!   An investigation leads to the possible conclusion they didn’t want any royalties going to Chuck cos Keith was pissed at him over the whole Johnnie Johnson bizsnatch.  No conclusive evidence ever found and no indictment forthcoming…

    Yes Bremen ’98 was a great show. My Dad went there when they announced on the radio that the gates had been opened. Remarkable that they actually kept ASMB in the set that long. You know there’s a longer film than what’s been broadcasted, right? Funny what a shitload of countries Mick mentions between songs. Can’t really imagine Keith being pissed off with Chuck to the degree where he wouldn’t play his songs. Anyway, since we also have girls here already, maybe Drake could edit the thread topic accordingly? Don’t wanna continue the bothersome sexism that’s tolerated on IORR (opposed to all that’s NOT tolerated)

    I’m Fred from Pennsylvania.  I’ve seen the band 38 times, the first being August 15, 1994 at Giants Stadium.  I went to Berlin last year to get the feel of a European show, plus I’m a big fan of anything German.

    I’ve been banned on three occasions from IORR:  “fah3” in 2006, “foreverfah” in 2007, and “fahthree” last year.  I can’t help but point out his BS to him.

    My name’s Ben, I live in London, and have been a fan since stumbling upon the allmusic review of Sticky Fingers and deciding to give it a listen one day back when I was a student. I post on IORR under the same username and haven’t been banned yet, although it’s probably just a matter of time.

    Bjornulf Dik has banned me on several occasions; first under this name, then several other related ones. Believe it or not, it was my joke set lists that got me banned the first time. e.g.:

    https://www.iorr.org/talk/read.php?1,394671,page=1

    I live in DC, have seen the Stones all over the world (including in Tokyo and Madrid), and caught four shows this tour: Columbus, Orlando, Pittsburgh, and Raleigh. The Columbus show was a stinker, but the other three were excellent. At least what I can remember of them 😉

    Hi Nikki – you’re kidding, you were banned over that thread?     That was very funny & clever.

    Wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well

    I’m Cindy – I live in Boston.     I’m a Keith girl, that has to be said.   Favorite albums are LIB & Beggars Banquet.   Favorite songs are, Gimme Shelter & Jigsaw Puzzle.      Favorite show would have to be the Beacon seeing Mick & Keith sharing the mic for the first time in years.  That was a lovely memory.

    I was banned for spreading gossip on IORR (which turned out to be true!)   I love the Rolling Stones as though they’re family, but will call them out on shit if deserved.   Blind loyalty is not something I subscribe to.

    I will be a fan until the day I die.

    I just read a few of these and laughed, and as I scrolled down within three posts I see that some uptight chronie has to step in an ruin the mood.    Either join in or shut the fuck up.

    Cindy where were you at the Beacon?  I was 2nd row night one, off to the side standing for night two.  Amazing show/s that the film barely captures.

    Yeah Drake, don’t you remember I sent you a photo of you?   You were by the door on the right, I remember very distinctly waving to you from the mezzanine.

    Now I KNOW you weren’t there!  The models didn’t arrive until the 2nd night!  Us ugly normal fans were down there for the first show!  Thats why Scorsese chickened out and removed all the seats.
