Some of you had the pleasure of seing The Charlie Watts Quintet with Bernard Fowler and a 21-piece orchestra, in concert during the summer and fall. The concert in New York had changed from Carnegie Hall to The Supper Club.
The David Letterman show was a big disappointment to Stones fans, as they ran out of time, and all we got was a quick live take, no talks or anything else...
For the concert in New York, Supper Club, Keith Richards arrived about half an hour before the show, bringing his growing family, three generations. Keith is happy as usual, and salute the fans by waving back... During the introductions, Keith shouted "and finally we have Charlie, the old bastard" from his balcony. Charlie replied: "Ive been following this guy my whole career, and now I cant get rid of him... Keith Richards"...
During the Charlie concert in Los Angeles, Mick Jagger and Don Was attended. Charlie finished off in London and Sheperds Bush Empire, and in October he went to Japan (any reports please?).
One year ago about 3% of all IORR members had a connection to Internet. Now this number has grown to 10%. Within 2 - 3 years, about 50% of all IORR members will be able to use Internet at home, at work or through a friend. The following information is to the 90% of you who are not yet familiar with Internet. This is not a commercial paid for by some Internet company, but rather a reply to all of you who ask how and why Internet is important to a Stones fan...
Internet is no magic. Its simply a way of connecting your PC to all other computers in the (Internet) world. Once the cable and other stuff is in place (check with a local Internet provider), you will be able to send and recieve messages within minutes, rather than days by letter/post.
The printed IORR magazine is limited to 32 pages of information, 3 - 4 times per year. On Internet, you will find the electronic version of the IORR magazine. The photos are not so glossy and great, but they are there. You cant bring it to your best reading spot, turn the pages the same way, hold it in your hand he same way. But, you will find a lot more information!
Since the debut in March this year, the IORR Web pages have had more than 500,000 hits, i.e. number of times someone has demanded information. At any time, night or day, many fans are visiting, from Japan, USA, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Europe, anywhere. There will be a Stones fans beginners guide to Internet available soon too. If you need complete tour dates, detailed reviews, hot news or links to other Stones places, then use the IORR Internet Web address:
PS. The IORR magazine will be there still, and when the Stones tour, you will be mailed for sure, dont worry!
