Ahhh rain and the Stones.
I was at one show at the stadium in Cleveland maybe 77 or 78 with Kansas and I think Gary Wright. Anyway, it rained like hell while Kansas played and wind whipping, lightning and Kansas rocked it right through the storm. Then this nut with a specially built motorcycle does this tightrope thing with a gal hung underneath the bike on a metal trapeze thingy which was great. I mean lightning and rain and he's spinning that thing around 100 feet off the ground. Stoopid excellent.
Thing is I got to see how awesome Kansas was and how insane the bike stunt was in the rain twice since the Stones would not play so Kansas and crazy guy did their gigs twice. Finally the sun came out and yep, so did Jagger and the band.
I still dig their tunes but... whatta buncha pussies.
Cross Country Tour.
We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go
