Grew up with these guys, and it seems an affectionate term to describe them these days .......... after all, who would have ever imagined that they'd still be out there doing it?

Rock on, chaps. :thumbup: :thumbup:

I saw them in Cardiff a couple of years ago. Probably one of the best concerts (it was a bit big for a gig) that I've ever seen. Also saw the film of their Cuba concert on the big screen last year. Sadly, being an opinionated teenager who thought they were a bunch of has-beens, I missed their Ashton Gate concert in the early 80s. Actually, I think they were known as the Strolling Bones back then.

Have already posted here but was just thinking. In the 1950's, Jazz was a minority interest. Modern, or Pop as it was known, was covered on TV by such shows as Top of the Pop's. A lot of attention was given to the 'hit parade' and which song was going to be 'top' and for 'how long'. Kid's today don't know how lucky they are. I remember (sadly) when a song called 'How much is that doggy in the window' was 'top of the pop's' for several weeks. Things didn't improve until Elvis Presley (not my cup of tea) and the Beatles came along.
I once played against Don Revie.
