The Rolling Stones

Never thought I'd ever see them in concert. But I did, and they were *almost* as enjoyable as Girls Aloud.

Partly, it's just the fact that they're there. Standing on a stage, less than a quarter of a mile away from you. It's just amazing.

Ignoring the amazing songs, and the stunning stage show (floating stage! fireworks! streamers!), there was just so much to take in, especially during the bits where they "played a new song".

Mick Jagger - amazing dancer, appalling dresser.

Keith Richards - chain-smoking legend, with an appearance rather like a mummified vegetable discovered down the back of the freezer.

They're all so thin! Is there a Rolling Stones Diet book? Is it from the same publishers as the Kate Moss Diet?

Hi-Definition Big Screen Wow. Not only could you see all of the words on placards, you could also see every single crow's foot.

It was just amazing.
