@HOG: Anyone who's seen "Performance" knows that much! One more hour till us LA folks can tune in...I wasn't going to watch but since it's getting such good reviews here, I'll give it a shot.

He did "The Last Time" backed by Arcade fire, and "19th Nervous Breakdown/It's only Rock & Roll" backed by the Foo Fighters. Later in the show, they did a farewell thing for Kristen Wiig where pretty much the whole cast sang "She's a Rainbow/Ruby Tuesday" backed by Arcade Fire. All the tunes were good, as was Mick's natural comedic ability. Not a bad show.

I enjoyed the "White House Blues" number. Watching Jeff Beck play always amazes me. He's makes most everyone else look like students in first grade!

Excellent show. Much better than the average SNL. The music was hot.

I finally got around to seeing it. The music was definitely the highlight--all the performances were GREAT. The Last Time rocked, 19th Nervous Breakdown/It's Only Rock'n'Roll rocked, White House Blues featured a great Beck solo, and the final segment w/Kristin Wig was very touching. I was *thrilled* that a song from "Satanic Majesties" was played on national live TV, and that it sounded so beautiful, like a timeless classic. I wonder who chose that song to say farewell to her. I also thought that the performances with Arcade Fire and The Foo Fighters actually rocked harder than the Stones themselves were capable of doing their last few tours. Jagger should just go out backed by these bands from now on, I wouldn't mind! For a seventy-year old he sure seemed spry.

The karaoke scene was hilarious, the rest of the skits were so-so but Jagger seemed game in all of them. He did a hilarious Steven Tyler, mocking someone who had so obviously aped Jagger's own style throughout his career. Weekend Update was funny, it's usually good when the Stefan character appears.

19th Nervous Breakdown/It's Only Rock'n'Roll with the Foos was really something special! This is not to start any wars with you Foo Fighter fans out there, but to me Dave Grohl was best as a solid support guy for a more charismatic front-man in Nirvana. So seeing him in that same role behind the most charismatic front-man ever was a treat! The Stones 50th anniversary reunion tour is no given. I believe Keith's portrayal of Mick in his autobiography ("Life") was more damaging to their already rocky relationship than either is willing to admit publicly. If that tour cannot get going, the Foo Fighters would be a fine replacement for the other Stones. Maybe a side-project of new material penned by Jagger/Grohl?

Dave Grohl bugs the hell out of me, always jumping around like a 5 year old playing guitar.

I thought it was an excellent show also, compared to what they normally have nowadays. I thought Jagger did a very good job in the skits he was in. Particularly when he was Steven Tyler. I have (more often than not) looked at Steven Tyler as a Mick Jagger wanna-be, so it was a interesting turn of events to see Jagger playing Tyler. It was a pretty good resemblance.

I've been a regular watcher of SNL for a very long time, but lately I've been hard pressed to stay awake for it. Not for lack of trying on my part -- but mid 40s are a little different than mid 20s. Even when asleep in front of TV, I really try to be awake for the musical acts and Weekend Update. I drank a lot of coffee and Coca-Cola this time around to make it to 1 AM.

Thought the music was good also. Jagger made some inspired choices in having Arcade Fire and Foo Fighters backing him up. He's not a dinosaur by any stretch.

WRT She's a Rainbow - I've always heard that in my head when I was dating someone. So choosing it for Wiig's farewell would not have much of a "stretch" for me. It was nice to see someone else had the same thought.

Stones have already announced they will not tour in 2012 due to Keef's health. The 4 Stones did post a video TOGETHER on Facebook today thanking the fans for reaching 10,000,000 LIKES.

Watts doesn't care to tour again. Keef may be too frail. Jagger has been doing solo appearances on TV. Time waits for no one.

I thought time was on their side? Last I'd heard they were gearing up for a 2013 tour.

Loved the show. Great performances all the way a around. Very funny and cool music too. Loved She's a rainbow at the end. Christian Wig is very hilarious.

I'm afraid if the Stones wait another year or 18 months before trying to tour again, it will be too late. The same for The Who. I love both bands, but the longer they wait to do these supposedly "upcoming" tours, the less chance it's going to happen.
As for the Grohl/Kurt Cobain reference from another poster above, I'm in the minority that disagrees. I always thought Nirvana was grossly overrated, and that revisionism has made Nirvana and Kurt Cobain more "important" than they actually were. Yes, they were part of a movement that killed hair metal, but that's the key - they were PART OF a movement, not the entire movement. People today (many who were in diapers or weren't even born when Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins first hit back in 1991/1992) erroneously give Nirvana the sole glory for music of the early and mid-1990s. As someone who was in college then, worked in a record store then and played in multiple bands then, I can assure you that Nirvana had a TON of help from Pearl Jam and the other bands mentioned in wiping away hair metal. In fact, it was Time Magazine that put Pearl Jam, not Nirvana, on the cover of their magazine ("All the Rage" article/issue) back then. It's funny how revisionism warps facts and events.
As for Foo Fighters, I will always prefer them as artists, performers and musicians, over Nirvana. Better guitar sounds, better vocals, better arrangements, real passion (not that detached, eternally flat, lazy singing of Cobain), better bass lines, better everything. Ugh. I just tire of hearing how the world must love Nirvana, and if you don't love them, there's something wrong with your musical tastes and intellect. Blah, blah, blah. Lol! :)

I thought Mick did well, as did the musicians on SNL. I've seen Foo Fighters (3 hours of originals plus Queen and Who covers), Jeff Beck (2 plus hours reaching into all phases of his catalog) and the Stones (3 hours with Bill Wyman on bass; Wyman's last Stones tour in 1989) in person, and all three concerts were fantastic. But it now looks like the Stones run the risk of never touring again .... something that seemed so real in the mid-1980s but is so much closer to reality today.

I'd be surprised to see a full-on tour from them, but not surprised to see some 50th Anniversary shows. Maybe LA, NY, London, and a few other places. But I wouldn't be shocked if they don't do anything. We don't really know all the little details about how they're doing or what they're feeling these days, though it looks like Mick wouldn't have any problem.

I get the feeling that if they'd really wanted to tour, they'd have gotten something together this year. I think the part about 2013 being the real 50th anniversary is sort of spin they're putting on it; they could have gone either way on that, and they chose to put it off. And even though Charlie wasn't there until 1963, the band has always been noted as having formed in 1962.

it's probably coincidental that the 19th overtone gives us music in minor keys etc.

yes it was a great show, my wife and I both were pleasantly surprised how good Mick was; self-deprecating, funny, attentive, not trying to steal the show, willing to do whatever. The music was all great, and the skits were pretty much great, too.
Was good to see Mick and Jeff together, and the mutual admiration they obviously have for each other. Especially evident when Mick walked on stage, and Jeff (obviously forgetting for a micro-second that he wasn't the 'center-stage' performer) dodged around for a minute trying to get out of Mick's shadow till Mick good-naturedly pushed him aside and they both laughed.
'Stefon' was fantastic as always, and Kristin Wiig will be sorely missed. It's been many years since ANYONE has been able to knock them out of the park the way she consistently does on SNL (maybe only Ferrel, Belushi, Radner, Ackroyd and a few others have been on her level). Lorne must be afraid to see her go after the way she's helped make the show relevant again after several years' worth of fading. If Sudeikis goes too, they'll have trouble getting the mojo back. Rumors are Samberg is leaving, too.
Overall a great show, well worth an old man (namely me) staying up to see.
