“It started with a flick of a riff. A fleet guitar lick from Keith Richards in ‘Get Off My Cloud” signaled to fellow guitarist Ron Wood to send back a sneaky run of his own. Bassist Daryl Jones fleshed out the framework from below, while drummer Charlie Watts gave them all a hard kick from behind, setting the music in bracing motion. Together, it created the sleekest possible vehicle for singer Mick Jagger to ride. It also provided the best explanation for how the fifty-year old Stones could take the stage at Barclays Center on Saturday and sound so spry.”

This is one of my first live concert photos that I took of The Rolling Stones in Los Angeles in 1975. I think it was also one of my very first photo passes. I just scanned it for the first time and it has never been seen or published before.
