I hope she and her husband are evicted by Dominique Strauss-Kahn but I like her as a singer.

I was depressed when I realised that it was as long from Let it Bleed until The Stones Roses as it was from The Stones Roses until today. And now today is yesterday. The day before yesterday. Balls. Probably my choice for Stones Album No. 2 (after Beggars Banquet).

I'd say ABBA but I think that now it's pretty much accepted that they were great. Plus, they helped Amanda Seyfried on her rise to stardom, and who can argue with that? So I'll say Cliff Richard. His early stuff is often really, truly excellent, I promise, and he's had his moments since then.

Yeah, Eight Miles High is mostly by Gene Clark. He left the group in the same month as it was released, though, and isn't in this clip: It was inspired by a conversation with Brian Jones:

As Tears Go By/You Should Have Seen Her Ass. Hahaha. No really, No Expectations/Shine a Light would be interesting.

Quotemarvpeck "I love that period of the Stones when Brian Jones was really at the top of his game and was infusing all of that experimentation into what they were doing. They lost a lot when he went away." " And I thought I liked him before I read that.... (Actually, even though I'm a bit (a lot) of a Jonesian, I think Mick T. and Ronnie are great.)

I don't see a thread about Gene Clark so I'm going to start one because recently I've become very, very interested in him. Among many virtues, the Byrds started with three of popular music's best voices - Jim McGuinn, Gene Clark and David Crosby - and one of popular music's best writers - Gene Clark. Gene Clark's post-Byrds recordings didn't gain the same comm

Very good to see Mick getting the credit for his lyrics that he deserves. Apart from the usual frustrations of metre and rhyme, Mick was a poet. Also Serge Gainsbourg, David Bowie, Syd Barrett, Jacques Lanzmann & Anne Segalen (for Jaques Dutronc), Jacques Brel etc.

It's funny considering what Keith said about Gram in Life and the very different things he said about Brian, that Chris Hillman on Gram sounds very much like Keith on Brian:

One of my favourite later Stones songs and just as good as Start Me Up. I remember it got Single of the Week in the NME, with a reference to Keith's 'slow riff of evil'. It would have made a great Satanic track.

I love the everyday triumph of the song. 'I'm free to do what I want any old time' over the gentle surges of the melody and the lovely shimmering guitars.

He was an integral part of some wonderful music. I'm not generally fond of the UK honours system but I'm very glad his contribution was recognised before the end of his life.

p.s. I don't think Keith doesn't think about that stuff. Not really. Keith as presented in Life, perhaps not, but there's more to the silly bugger than that.

Quoteghostryder13 Quotewhitem8 I think it is mostly a Keith song, and good evidence for this is that originally he sang vocals on it, and it was pretty much fully developed at that point (unlike Soul Survivor)... that's the story i always heard plus their's an outtake with keith doing vocals as well I'll go with the majority that the writing is mostly (at least) Keith but Mick ce

It's twenty years since the death of the astonishing Serge Gainsbourg and here are some clips to remember him by. If you don't like one track, please try another; he wrote in a wide variety of styles. "He was our Baudelaire, our Apollinaire... He elevated the song to the level of art" ~ Fran├žois Mitterrand

QuoteGreenblues Listening to "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago" one senses that it was Beck's explosive spirit that fuelled this fantastic twin-guitar performance. Listen to all these "Little Games" recordings with Jimmy Page, and you realise that the magic has gone, they simple don't gel anymore. What had sounded like psychodelic hard rock heaven before is now falling

To me, Satanic sounds more influenced by (or at least more like) early Pink Floyd than the Beatles. Anyway, it's more erratic in quality than either Pepper or Piper but it's high points are as high as theirs.

Eh? The Stones and Yardbirds songs were in a fairly similar place at the time. Pop and blues, mixed with various more exotic influences.
