MAGAZINE ARCHIVE : ROLLING STONE – 28.10.2010

We go back to late 2010 with a Rolling Stone on the cover of Rolling Stone, as they exclusively bring you Keith Richards memoirs.

Earlier in the month was what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday, and there was a tribute concert which Lady Gaga performed at, which was covered by Rolling Stone.

In news, Kid Rock is facing a battle against imposters and lookalikes who go out in public pretending to be him, while The Who are plotting to go on tour in 2011.

Robert Plant is the subject of a Q and A, where he reveals himself to be a fan of Los Lobos.

At the time, halfway through his presidency (though he would win a second term in 2012), there are seven pages dedicated to Barack Obama’s presidency, and the case as to why it has been a success.

The serialisation of Keith Richards memoirs gets twelve pages of coverage, focusing on Rolling Stones success in the 1960s and 1970s.

That was three times as many pages dedicated to Kings Of Leon, as they get set to release their 5th album, looking to follow on from the success of their 4th, Only By The Night.

That album gets reviewed in this edition, getting 4 stars out of 5, being described as “Their U2 moment”

2013 IN PICTURES – OCTOBER

October began for me with a trip to Mourneview Park, to see Linfield take on Glenavon, one of the early season pacesetters.

It was a good day all round …… Linfield won, other results saw them go top of the league, and it stayed dry and I got some nice photos.

Enthused by that performance, I headed to The Oval three days later for a League Cup tie …….. and my enthusiasm was soon gone.

An awful game, an awful performance by Linfield, the only positive was that they won the tie on penalties.

Later that week, I went to my usual Ulster European game, against Leicester Tigers, getting a chance to see the redeveloped, but not yet finished, Ravenhill. It’s very impressive. Looking forward to visiting when it’s completely done.

The next day, I went to see Linfield have a routine win over Dungannon Swifts.

Meanwhile, the day after that, I was out and about in Belfast getting photos of Street Art.

The following Saturday, I was at Windsor Park for the match between Linfield and Crusaders. It was a 0-0 draw. Not an awful 0-0 draw, but not a lot of photo opportunities.

My only concert of the month, saw me see Primal Scream at The Limelight.

Two days later, I headed to Ballymena for the first time since January 2012 to see Linfield win 4-1 in four seasons in 90 minutes.

My final photo adventure of the month, was to get some satirical anti Barack Obama stencils which had appeared in Belfast recently.
