    Sympathy (5.00 / 1) (#5)

    Saw them perform on this tour in November, 1969 in San Diego, a few weeks before the MSG appearance.  Mick Taylor was on "lead" guitar (Brian Jones had died), but he never got much respect from the band and didn't last long.  Note Lennon in the audience.

    One of the best live guitar performances IMHO (none / 0) (#1)

    is Keith Richards in 1969 doing "Sympathy for the Devil" at Madison Square Garden.

    Although my brother said some people think it was Mick Taylor on lead guitar...

    Get yer ya-yas out.  Great tune.

    You probably think this song is about you
    You're so vain
    I'll bet you think this song is about you
    Don't you? Don't you?

    Try as I might, I can find no sympathy for our own real live devils Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al.
