Speaking of Olga Korbut, I already miss the women's gymnastics. The level of difficulty is much greater today for the women, but Nadia Comaneci was pure grace and fluidity, like a ballet dancer, an artist, and as astonishing it is to watch Simone Biles and her athleticism, today's gymnasts lack that kind of artistry. And the floor was just floor, no springs...the balance beams woode

Love it, always have. In this facile and transitory Internet-driven world, the Olympics is one of the few big-scale international events that still feels like a collective experience to me. I'm a sucker for all those sappy stories: the orphaned Romanian gymnast who was shipped off to some austere gymnastics facility 50 miles from her home when she was 5, the swimmer who survived tragedy and

Quotekammpberg I think Mick is a genius, a totally underrated business man who's done an incredible job of running The Rolling Stones (and thereby making a generally unappreciated to Mick Jagger, Keith Richards countless millions). I think Mick is also highly underrated and underappreciated in his genius songwriting. But the annoying thing is Mick doesn't help with this with his aloof

That guy, or guys with sleeves rolled up like they just got off work from thier corporate jobs with thier trophy gf in tow and beer in hand. They either got free tickets or could afford the best seats so why not? I watched this clown at Florence and the Machine and he and the gf spent the whole time taking selfies of themselves. They often come in small packs and they're at all the concert

QuotePalace Revolution 2000 Jagger on other hand seems born with natural cockiness, superiority, an alpha male. Back in the days of '62, ;63 in interviews while Keith was still hiding behind him, and Brian was rambling on, Jagger was already cocksure of himself. There is IMO no way Jagger could EVER do, have done what he does on stage without being ultra cool, and knowing he was. IMO

QuoteKoen The US became one of the richest countries in the world due to mass immigration. I don't see what everyone is afraid of. Although they like to point to our slave-mentality history, the UK, and Europe in general, have never experienced the kind of mass migration that is central to the American foundation. And it took centuries, and a war and movements and uprisings, for the U.S. t

I think he has an innate cool. It's different than Keith's 'cool' - Mick has a general disdain for people, can see through bullshit and phoniness...and he has a sneering manner toward people he disrespects. Not so much anymore, but when you watch those old Jagger interviews, its very much his disdainful arrogance that defined that Stones attitude in those days. Not Keith.

One of my earliest, fondest memories of childhood was the complimentary 8-track that came with my parents' 1970/71 Oldsmobile 88 .. With the song, These Eyes. I must have heard that song dozens of times on our first family road trip to California that year.. And of course, later I loved all those great hits.. She's Cone Undone, Laughing.. Anyone remember BC's solo single, Stand

This was a vote fueled by anti-immigrant sentiment. The UK has always derided the US history of racism, and rightly so. But the xenophobia in the UK runs deep, at least among the older generations.

QuoteTurner68 As close to perfection in straight-ahead rock-n-roll 45 rpm singles as they got. Gimme Shelter, Satisfaction, and Paint it Black are all so unique and distinctive they stand apart. But for just pure raw straight ahead rock-n-roll, Tumbling Dice might be the pinnacle. They've never done it well live, and so sadly as a result for a lot of fans it isn't respected a

Most artists have a relatively brief period of peak creativity. Stevie peaked a little earlier than most because he got started earlier than most. He was only 15 when he did "Uptight (Everything's Alright)." That song defines the

Quoteloog droog When the Stones have had guest stars performing with them, I thought they should do a cover of "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" by The Dramatics. Great song, and the lyrics would be a perfect excuse to give Keith and Ronnie a rare solo turn at the mic. It would go like this: (GUEST STAR) Some people are made of plastic (RONNIE) And you know some people are made

QuoteRipThisBone They are so great because they are midgets (ask Keith) playing the most pumped up ROCK (AND have/had some ROLL too). Just Great songs. Simple lyrics. I got all albums, some on vinyl (from when I was a kid) and all except Rock or Bust because Malcolm is not on it. I don't give a damn about AC/DC supposed poor lyrics. They are spot on.

QuoteKoen I'm over 50 but never got AC/DC Every person has different tastes in music, and that's OK. True, I had a friend my age who never liked ACDC. Of course not everyone liked them, but I guess my point was that ACDC was, in a way, the antithesis of what modern audiences like today...things have to be clean, politically correct and deep. I can't think of any new artists

Is it a generational thing? Young music fans today are so ...'deep' - I tried to explain to my niece that the lyrics to ACDC don't matter, and she was kind of like,..Huh? Everything has to be either pretty and conventional like Adele, or ironic and profound and 'rootsy' or whatever they define as 'rootsy' I was just watching year's Grammy performance..
