Rolling Stones – Houston

Every time I begin to forget what an incredible live band they are, the Stones play in Houston and I am reminded that they are simply the greatest live rock and roll band ever.

Raina and I saw them tonight. It was a great show, perhaps my favorite Stones show ever. Highlights were a magical rendition of Dead Flowers, an amazing cover of Ray Charles’ Night Time Is The Right Time, a very energetic Get Off Of My Cloud and perennial concert favorite Sympathy For The Devil. Seeing the Stones live is still one of those pinch yourself moments for me, and those moments are special indeed.

The Stones simply rock. Not on every song anymore, but when they hit their groove, which can happen at any time, even within a song, nobody does it better.
