The show is a well rehearsed combination of sound, lighting and music… Rolling Stones music. The marriage of traditional guitars and thunderous drums is carried out ceremoniously. Add the classic vocals, searing harp and the combination is complete.
While it may be true that there’s nothing like the real thing, the tribute band Sticky Fingers comes as close to the glory of the Glimmer Twins as anyone can. Sticky Fingers is the consummate tribute band. Complete with replica costumes, instruments and even amplifiers, Sticky Fingers has been honored in the pages of Entertainment Weekly, which called them the “next best thing to being there.” They have been featured in countless newspapers and television shows like Entertainment Tonight and the Jenny Jones Show.
Entertainment Weekly, writes: “Sticky Fingers makes the ultimate tribute. For those Rolling Stones fans shut out of the Rolling Stones tours by ticket prices and traveling distances, Sticky Fingers are the next best thing to being there.”
The New York Village Voice says: “Sticky Fingers is the greatest rock and roll tribute band in the world. The Rolling Stones show you`ve been waiting for.”
The East Coast Rocker reports: “I think they’re great. An excellent show complete with good sound, Glimmer Twins magic and solid grooves to every Stones composition.”
Twist and Shout’s music critic writes: “Glen Carroll is the Jumping Jack Flash icon of Rock-n-Roll”
New York Times writes: “It’s (Glen) Carroll, who ultimately steals the show. What could compel a musician to spend his entire career dressing like Mick Jagger and performing nothing but Rolling Stones covers, just to earn a decent living, occasionally share a stage with Foreigner or Alice Cooper, and have boozy coeds beg him to play “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”? If that question doesn’t answer itself, Glen Carroll, the mock Jagger at the center of “Like a Rolling Stone,” a heartfelt and often hilarious exploration of the tribute-band phenomenon, offers a pretty convincing rationale.”
