A Rolling Stone gathers lots of gear

File under: better late than never

Posted on Fri, Sep 22, 2006 at 10:28 AM

Just in case you've managed somehow to miss these links, here are a couple of The Rolling Stones' riders. Comparing the current version, for the Bigger Bang tour that's coming to Halifax, with the one for the '97-'98 Bridges to Babylon tour, you get a picture of an struggling band that is finally making something of itself. For example, the hard-luck Stones of almost ten year ago managed to scrape together enough money to buy a set of snooker balls which they carried on tour, but they had to rely on each concert promoter to provide a table. Anyone can understand that's a nightmare scenario. (Would you trust a promoter with your snooker needs?) Now, they roll with their own table, and the rock dream lives on.
