I know ...it's only rock and roll but I LIKE IT!

How wonderful to be able to attend a Stones concert in the comfort of your own living room, rum and eggnog in hand. This concert was on pay-per-view and while a bit pricey for their normal offerings, it was a bit special. This was the live performance from New Jersey.

The opening of the show had a parade of drummers wearing masks of the Rolling Stone's anniversary gorilla. It was absolutely primal.

In more somber moment, Jagger acknowledge the sadness of the recent heartbreaking news from Connecticut and dedicated the next song.
"I just wanted to take a minute and send our love and condolences to those who lost their loved ones yesterday," he said.


Lady Gaga is a female Mick Jagger. They did a rendition of Gimme Shelter that was over the top greatness.
