Starting them up

When you go to see a Rolling Stones show, you expect it to be fabulously over the top. Big hits, big stage, big personalities. Oh -- and a big opening band, right? Uh, not necessarily. Warming up for the Stones tonight and Sunday at the TD Banknorth Garden . . . pop-rockers Sloan? If you've never even heard of them, you're not alone. So how does this little-known Canadian foursome stack up against other artists who've opened for world's greatest rock 'n' roll band?
