It's Only Rock 'n Roll But I Liked It

Actually, the Stones/Scorcese film "Shine a Light" isn't only rock and roll, it's pure magic. Have just come back from the local premier showing (darlings) and...well, it was absolutely fantastic. The hardest part was sitting through some of the best Rolling Stones music ever without getting up and dancing, although someone did but unfortunately it wasn't me.

Superb music, superb cinematography, just superb everything. Even better than Ikea meatballs and worth all the aggro I went through to get the tickets. Even got a free t-shirt.

As long as you've got blood in your veins, rhythm in your soul and an appreciation of something really special, this film is for you.

Start queueing for tickets NOW.

I always say, "go for it!" You went for it. Good on yer.
Been visiting family in Brum and Wales, - hence my blogging silence.

Hi MOTL, still so excited I can't sleep, so blogging instead. That's how good it was.

Norman, hi. You were quite right Norman, so glad I persevered and got those tickets. It's one of the best films I've ever seen (like a rock concert but close up).

I always follow my mother's advice, these days, and carry a spare pair of knickers, in case I get too excited. Hope you remembered yours.

Glad you enjoyed it.

Swearing Mother said...

So good I nearly pee'd my pants, you mean? Thank goodness for incontinence knickers, the whole audience probably needed them.

Sounds fab!

Great to hear that it lived up to your expectations. Nothing worse than an anti climax. Saw Keith Richards on the telly being interviewed about it. That man is a walking medical miracle as how the hell he is still upright is a mystery to me!!!

Casdok, it was really, really fab. Go if you can.

MMOF: A miracle indeed, you should have seen him play and sing. Fantastic, for any age.

I'm going. It sounds great.

And I'm so pleased that it was you standing up and dancing. Oh, the shame....

Maggie May said...

Glad you had such a great time!
I can imagine you all slinging your knickers on to the stage!

Expatmum said...

Ooh that sounds great. I saw them here in Chicago last time they toured and they were brilliant - very craggy and Keith was a bit wasted, but brilliant.
Love Maggie May's comment about slinging knickers on stage! Tee hee!

CrazyCath said...

Oh I am so glad you got there and enjoyed it!
Did you take spare knickers then or come back knicker-less from slinging them on the stage? ;0)

Swearing Mother said...

Hi Suzy, let me know what you think of it.

Travelling, you will love it.

Maggie May, hi. Great fun was had by all!

Oooh Expatmum, live in Chicago? How fab.

It was great Cath, made me proud. And they're even older than us. Ha!
