Reservoir Music Notes -- Rolling Stones Invasion of New York
December 16, 2012

The Rolling Stones invasion of New York has begun! With their show at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center last Saturday, the British rockers fired the first salvo across the bow of the Big Apple, and it was rocked! It continues this week with their just announced appearance at the 12-12-12 Concert, and two shows at The Prudential Center in Newark on Thursday and Saturday. One can only hope that there will be more to their 50th anniversary tour than 3 shows in New York and 2 in London!

In other Stones’ news, their new documentary, “Crossfire Hurricane”, which has been shown on HBO and in limited theatrical release, is set to be released on DVD in January. The film covers the entire 50 years, and has footage of all former and current members, much of it previously unseen! All reports say it is amazing! Quite a few of my friends watched it 3 times in one day!

 And, the other Bad Boys of Rock, Led Zeppelin, have apparently moved into proper society, with their recent Kennedy Center Honors! Go take a look at the picture of Jimmy, Robert, and John Paul, sitting next to The President and First Lady in their tuxes and ribbons and read the story. It’s really cool! Also honored were Buddy Guy, Dustin Hoffman, David Letterman, and ballerina Natalia Makarova.

Finally, Fleetwood Mac have announced plans for a Spring tour. Shows scheduled for this area are Madison Square Garden on April 8, Mohegan Sun on April 20, and Prudential Center on April 24.

Now to the live music picks!

Have a great week, and if the world really does end on December 21, next week’s column will still be online at www.reservoirmusiccenter.com, www.brooklyncowboys.com, and www.hvmusic.com, if, I said if, there’s still an internet! LOL.

And if the world doesn’t end, don’t forget to listen to me on the radio, every other Monday night at approximately 8:30PM, on 91.1, WIOX FM, and www.wioxradio.org. Next show will be December 24. I think. It’s Christmas Eve and I don’t know if the show will be on, but it might be, and if not, the next one after that will be January 7, 2013.

Adios amigos!
