The Rolling Stones Played Surprise Gig @ EchoPlex in L.A.

Just got back from L.A. today, and seeing the Stones play a surprise gig at EchoPlex last night. The place is  small, holds about 700 people, but retains the vibe and intimacy of an indie music venue To be able to get right up to the stage and making it a more intimate experience with one of my favorite bands was priceless.  The Stones kicked off the night with “You Got Me Rocking,”  and offered a mix of new material and classic hits along with several covers.  The Stones were joined by Mick Taylor, along with Darryl Jones on bass, Chuck Leavell on keys, Bobby Keys on sax and Bernard Fowler and Lisa Fisher on backup vocals. The band are warming up for their upcoming tour – 50 & Counting – which kicks off on May 3rd at Staples Center.  See tour dates below.
