With all the demonstrations happening in the Middle East; perhaps the boys should dust off this old Stones tune and try it out again . . .

PJ Denver 1994:

The Stones in the old days:

"Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution
'Cause where I live the game to play is compromise solution

Hey! Said my name is called disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants "

  • Ahhh my other favorite band. Stones and PJ. It's great that they have done this. I was also very fortunate enough to see McCready's performance of Dead Flowers in Columbus.
