I can't believe that an intellegent man like Mick Jagger was worried about being out-shone by The Who. The Who were fine but this was Mick Jagger as I remember him from the early days when he was at his best - incredible energy, talent and beauty. When I was a teenager I didn't appreciate just how professional the Rolling Stones were, and still are.
It was lovely to see Brian Jones again too. His slide guitar playing on "No Expectations" is brilliant despite his obvious drug problem. So sad that he left life too soon.
John Lennon singing that he wished he was dead made my blood run cold, the words so sad and his music so alive. This was the John Lennon of "Twist and Shout", raw and powerful and confident.
John Lennon and Mick Jagger together and both at their best, what more could anyone ask?
I was 18 in 1968, an amazing time to be young and at Art College, able to see these performers live at a price I could afford!
