Just for the record I knew exactly what you meant by the wealth and taste thing. I took it as you introducing yourself as the devil because of the
awesome song you referenced. I thought it was a catchy way to do your intro. I mean that's the thing that made me read your intro.
I'm sure many did, Jack. I know for a fact there are many on here with cracking music tastes. Plus, the auld fogies, like Springer (sorry, our kid
) et al who were bouncing around their gardens while Meredith Hunter was murdered by the Hells Angel's, while the Stones played that very song.
Though there was still 9 years to go before I hit the Earth, I have been lucky enough to see the Stones perform that 4 times and there is always a
strange and slightly ominous feeling that passes through the audience when they play SftD. Apparently, the band stopped playing that song for a period
after Altamont, because supposedly, something terrible always happened when it was performed (or was that Under my Thumb? Not as good a story if
Anyway, I was just being slightly facetious. There will be loads of posters who wouldn't know a good record if Keith Richards hit them over the head
with it (www.youtube.com...
)! Age is not a good enough excuse for listening to terrible music and not knowing who The Stones,

Do you hope I guess your name?
Welcome to the Jungle!
See! It's posts like this that frustrate me!! People who think Guns 'n' Roses created Sympathy for the Devil!!
If GnR is the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of that song, you need to thoroughly question the legitimacy of your popular
cultural history! Actually, if GnR ever enter your mind for ANY reason, you outta seek out electro convulsive therepy (unless your just thinking about
Slash, Slash is ACE! And he's a Brit, which makes him that little but better!)
Only playing with you, Watcher!
P.s. Yes, I'm a complete and utter music snob... and proud of it!
