Noteworthy Now

43 years of anticipation was fianlly rewarded when the Rolling Stones took the stage at the Glastonbury Festival Saturday night (6/29) to do their first Glasto set in the festival's 43 year history.  The band launched the performance with Jumping Jack Flash, the song it has performed live more than any other in its considerable catalog, but did include a couple of seldom done tunes.  Speculation about which high-profile guest would oining the lads during the set proved unfounded.  Former guitarist Mick Taylor did reprise his role during the set on Midnight Rambler and Can't You Hear Me Knocking?.  The multi-generational but predominantly young crowd packed in around the Pyramid stage seemed  more than satisfied with the relatively stripped down performance the band delivered.  Spirits and were running high the afternoon before the Stones took the stage.
