Mick Does SNL: Scoundrel Gets Goosebumps....

I haven't gotten this stoked about a musical performance on SNL since Nirvana's first outing way back when.
I have to admit I have never been the rabid Stones fan that many of my friends are, but I have a very soft spot for a few Stones tunes-and this one of them.
I had no clue what to expect but when I saw the look of pure glee on everyone's face and heard one of the sickest hooks in the history or Rock and Roll coming out of that Music Man at the beginning of 'The Last Time' I busted out in goosebumps and started grinning like an idiot.
I felt like a teenager again.
Mick can still throw down.
I fucking LOVE this!
Enjoy, Cheers, C.



On a side note: With the death of Donna Summer I want to throw in this remix of 1982's "State of Independence". I always liked Chrissie Hynde's (there are two versions on rotation) but this is a great song no matter who does it.
"If it sounds good, it is good"-Duke Ellington
Music snobs like me need to realize they can't second guess someone as towering as Duke.
