By 1989, the Rolling Stones had lost their sense of danger, and that’s fair: they had been around for 25 years. But having Axl and Izzy join them, at the height of Guns N Roses’ popularity, reminded them of what a dangerous group they were; it was a great moment to see the members of both bands jam together. Meanwhile, the Stones seemed to enjoy playing several radio hits — “Sad Sad Sad,” “Rock In A Hard Place,” and “Mixed Emotions,” the last time a new Stones album enjoyed that kind of popularity.
