Not a question, just a comment. Some TCM programming from the other night made me think of you immediately. They devoted the evening to films with "Weekend" in the title...

Tell Me Momma is amazing and solely exists as the opener in live '66 Dylan shows. And all honor and glory to the late, great Robbie Robertson (god, I miss him) for that shivering guitar intro on Ballad Of A Thin Man. Dylan, The Band...we will not see the likes of their talents ever again!
I visited Paris with my family during the summer, and - coincidentally - we found ourselves at Père Lachaise Cemetery on July 3, the anniversary of Jim Morrison's death. While our daughter explored the grounds on her own, my wife and I visited the resting places of the usual notables - Moliere, Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Oscar Wilde, et. al. One of the last sites we visited was Morrison's grave. It was the only one guarded by police, who were likely expecting a raucous crowd given the date. But I saw more visitors paying respects to Edith Piaf. Those besides us who did visit looked closer to my age (59) if not older. Meaning kindly seniors wearing Doors t-shirts, with some looking like they just had their hair done. Time is moving much too fast.
Looking for Heavy Metal? Try "From a Buick Six."
When you mention Aftermath as one of the Rolling Stones best albums, do you mean the UK or US version? Also at this point, do you still consider Let It Bleed their best album like you did in 1979 at the time of Stranded?
