QuotesanQ QuoteVoodooLounge13 Quote24FPS I think any new Stones record would have trouble keeping up with the energy of Mick and Dave Grohl's collaboration. (I'm still unclear if you can buy Easy Sleazy, or not, and why/why not?) The energy level can't possibly be what you would expect from a Rolling Stones record. The drums might be good but the bass still sounds like he's

Brian lit the fuse that became the Rolling Stones. Charlie said he was more advanced then than the rest of them musically in the beginning.

Quoteyeababyyea Paul's voice is not acceptable anymore. Mick has held up much better. All the old voices are shot. God knows what you'll get at a Dylan gig. Paul's voice is shot. Rod Stewart's voice is shot. Mick's voice is still listenable, but there's no emotion behind it, just barking out the well-worn lyrics. They said they were going to push the boundary and

The 'female' voice is an integral part of the song. And they don't camp it up, so I would stick with the way it's being done.

Quotejohn lomax Mick Jagger is the sole reason we still have the Stones. And in fact, I think that statement has been true since 1970. I love Keith, but you need to remember that he was effectively MIA for most of the 70s. He of course wrote great songs during that period but in terms of getting the Stones organised and active, you have to give full credit to Mick. And to be honest he has been

I understand Bill was absent from some sessions due to not wanting to hang around while Keith nodded out on junk until the wee hours. Still, it's a shame he isn't on more cuts. His playing on Rocks Off is incredible. And it sounds like Mick Taylor imitating him on Tumbling Dice.

Nice article. So...Mick and Keith were the only Stones for the overdubs? I really miss the L.A. Weekly. It used to be thick, and would show up, for free, on Thursday afternoons. It carried great restaurant reviews and let you know what groups were appearing where, and other cultural goings on like film revivals. Now it's a sad, thin little throw away of ten pages or so.

I am always amazed when I listen to the early Stones. Where did this overpowering energy come from? I think it's ultimately expressed through 'I'm Movin' On'. It's manic. It truly is incredible that two people who knew each other, and three strangers, came together and meshed so quickly. The Beatles were together six years before they hit. The Stones for two.

Nobody gets immunity from the current round of Covid. You can get reinfected rather easily. I still wear a mask in grocery stores, and other indoor facilities. I will take my chances at the Hollywood Bowl this July, as it is outside and most people have the common sense to get vaccinated and boosted.

I hope ALL the Stones, past and present, get a nice cut of the pie, and not just Mick and Keith for songwriting royalties. The general public is only interested in the first 15 years or so of the band, and that means, Bill, Brian, and Mick Taylor. God they'll probably drag Brian through the mud. Bill will probably only get the occasional nod, same with Mick Taylor. Honestly we don't

I loved Miss You. Loved. But can they please take the bass out of Darryl's hands for Miss You? I just watched the Madrid performance. He sounds like somebody reading off a page what notes you are supposed to hit. It's supposed to be some kind of tour de force for him, but he just can't cut it. I was hoping Jordan would get him into shape, but it's hopeless.

Retired Dog, I wish you the best. I've recently gone through losing my soul mate. We had our ups and downs, but we were always loyal to each spiritually. I miss her every day and it's been over a year. I guess the deeper the love the deeper the loss. Happily I have a tight support group of people who miss her just as much. We can commiserate and share memories. I hope you're not al

Billy had his time, just like Ron Wood. As the 70s moved into funkier realms, away from hard rock, Billy was better suited than Nicky Hopkins. Ron Wood was better suited than Mick Taylor. I remember hearing Billy's great piano for Hot Stuff in a club's massive sound system. His influence stretches into 1977 and Miss You. Then the Stones go in a punkish direction and Preston didn't

Why would they ever take it out of the warhorse rotation? It's one of their biggest smash records. Women love it. I loved it, when Bill played it. It adds variety to their sound on stage. Compared to the calcified numbers they play, it actually sounds newer. (Although Miss You is 44-years-old!) I can't believe they wasted stage time with Sad, Sad, Sad in Madrid. So many great catalo

I love that people still expect so much from what's left of the Stones, knowing they can't possibly deliver. This is rock and roll, meant to be delivered with great energy only young men have. Yes, I wallow in DVDs and CDs. I think the 60th snuck up on them. Mick's never been big on nostalgia, and I think he had enough of that on the 50th tour. I'm assuming there's no vid

Although, Some Girls, Steel Wheels and Flashpoint got some criticism. UICY-40011 mentioned by Rockman came in the fanciest package of them all.

Quoteexilestones "Tattoo You" I can't recommend a CD. What do our critics say about the 2020 release of Tattoo You compared to the 1981 mix, etc... There is a Tattoo You LP from 1981 Japan hailed as the best from the 1981 mixes. I'll research it and report back. I got UIC-79247 Tattoo You SHM CD, and it sounds fantastic.
