1. Neighbors (thus starting a period where they just shouted the name of the song over and over).

2. Let's Spend the Night Together (the movie, which is absolutely joyless and canned compared to the Hampton TV special. And what the hell was the cockeye fashion statement Mick was making with kneepads and garish colors? And was carried over to the '82 Europe tour).

3. Start Me Up video - (the cheapest, most amateurish video for a rock classic ever filmed).

4. Undercover, Dirty Work & Steel Wheels album covers. (The troika of WTF?)

5. Calling Undercover an album when it was really just an A-side single Undercover with She Was Hot as the B-Side.


Somebody already mentioned the Steel Wheels tour. It was magnificient in some ways, but its vastness of stage destroyed Bill's effectiveness to influence the sound.

1. Mick's decision to go solo and effectively breaking up the band between 1983-1989.
2. Not playing live for seven years (1982-1989).
3. Releasing a turd like "Dirty Work".
4. Pursuing drugs heavily throughout the decade.
5. That's enough!

1. Playing Devil by sampled congas: not only a musical crime, a crime towards humanity!

2. Production of Steel Wheels (guitar sound and synth)

3. Not touring for 8 years.

4. Matt Clifford

5. DW should have been a double album

C

Nah, death by Leavell tinkling.

PLINK, PLONK took over the guitar.
Stones guitar sound turned into PLINK, PLONK sound.
Songs in conserts starting: One, Two, one, two .... instead of guitar turning the song on.
(maybe this also is Chuck bashing)

Could be - if they hadn't allowed Chuck to take over, it would still have been a guitar band and not a plink, plonk band.
Maybe it is all because of Keith's lazyness. It is thime to bash Keith.

1. Live Aid (Jagger with Hall and Oates Band, Richards and Wood with Dylan);
2. Jagger solo albums (most heinously, "Let's Work");
3. Dancing in the Streets (mitigating factor: it was for charity);
4. Not touring and generally not functioning as a real band 1983-89; and
5. Matt Clifford's synth interlude between 2000 Light Years and Sympathy in 1989.

I think everyone here has forgotten the single most heinous 80s crime of all--Bill Wyman's greedy Smith-eating grin in virtually every band photo taken during 1989-90.

Even my dad likes that one, who just listens to Toto and Steely Dan.

That is an amusing combo of favorites there. I've nothing against Toto really, they are what they are, but I'd love to see Donald Fagen's reaction to your post.

Most have been mentioned already, but how about letting Ron Wood play drums on "Sleep"? Not releasing "Invitation" or "Precious Love"?

This thread is already a classic , alone for introducing the term "Leavell tinkling". Haha..

I like the Start Me Up video as well--because of the no frills approach. For many people my age just getting into music/Stones for the first time, that vid was the prime first introduction to the band. And the SMU vid makes up for its starkness by highlighting the faces and the personalities of the band, which at the time proved to be engaging...

I always read the SMU video as tongue-in-cheek. If you don't, it's a parody though...

I LOVE the SMU video.

The very first moment, when Keith comes into view is priceless. His face expression epitomizes his 1981/82 attitude perfectly.

Getting into the Stones' music in 1993, this era had just passed. The reunion of the Stones was also an artistic comeback for them but their way leading to a return to form on "Flashpoint" and the tour which it was culled from, began earlier.

To this listener, the nadir of the era is found in around 1985 as can be witnessed on the "She's the Boss" album. Yet, they did not bounce back right away because "Dirty Work" still shows that the band was not in shape, as Jagger said.

I don't get the bashing for "Primitive Cool" because it's got some great songs, too, and has aged rather well. In fact, I prefer it over "Steel Wheels" which has aged worse, despite having some good songs, too.

"State Of Shock" could have been Jagger handing the reigns over to Jackson but luckily, he took them back. That was not so easy for McCartney as it was for Jagger ...
