ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The Rolling Stones blasted through the past into the present on Saturday (July 6) with a rip-roaring show in London's Hyde Park that paid homage to their last concert at the same venue 44 years ago. Frontman Mick Jagger strutted, howled and belted his way through a two-hour set that gave a nod to founding member Brian Jones, whose death in 1969 turned their last appearance at the royal park into a tribute. Jones had already left the Stones the last time Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards and drummer Charlie Watts played the park at a gig meant to introduce his replacement, Mick Taylor. Guitarist Ronnie Wood joined in 1975. The Stones bounded across the stage and along a catwalk stretching into the sea of 65,000 fans gathered on a sultry summer evening in 21st century central London, sipping beer.
