I won't comment on the sound from a cellphone Facebook feed. I thought it was interesting that Steve had the front head of his kick set up like Charlie: hole dead center. As a drummer, I will say this is an unusual set-up these days. Drummers who port their front head typically put the hole off to the side to preserve some resonance from the head. The dead-center hole was popular in the 70s

QuoteTaylor1 Quotewith sssoul Quotecaschimann Jimmy Miller on drums? No Charlie here? Is that a thing I missed out during my 40 years Stones-fanship?? And if: On which other tracks you may be know (from 1962 to 2005) Charlie is replaced by someone else? Thanks! Maybe you were exposed to the knowledge, but blotted it from your memory banks? Some other studio tracks without Charlie: YCAG

Mountain was my first concert: July '71 at Milwaukee's Summerfest. An odd bill, with John Sebastian and Poco as openers. I spun the Nantucket Sleighride album endlessly that summer. RIP to a guitar monster.

Which is more difficult? I don't know...how long is a piece of string? I'm a drummer. Yes, maybe a lot of people could whack a snare drum in time to a piece of music, but listening to any song will tell you that's not all there is to it. Take a relatively simple song like JJF. Your right foot is playing a particular pattern while your right hand is playing a different pattern and y

Happy Birthday, Stu! We miss you. One small quibble with the otherwise excellent article above: Mick Avory has said that while he remembers rehearsing with the band a time or two, he never played out with them. The identity of the drummer at that first gig is an ongoing mystery. Some have suggested it may have been Carlo Little, as he was a popular session/fill-in drummer at the time. If yo

I was thirteen when this song was all over the radio, and I had a huge crush on the older (16-17) sister of a friend. She'd sometimes drive us around to someone's house, the beach, wherever, and I'd always grab the shotgun seat.Whenever I hear this song I can still see her: driving barefoot, in denim cut-offs, with her hair in a ponytail, singing along. Sigh. RIP Ann.

I think "Still Life" is a perfect title for this one. I was at the Chicago (the arena was actually in Rosemont IL) show where Start Me Up was recorded. After a strong opening with UMT, the rest of the album just isn't that exciting to me. Haven't listened to it in probably 30 years.

Quotevarilla Where does Charlie keeps all his gear? Does he have a drum kit at home? I seem to remember reading a bit from Charlie some years ago where he was talking about his dislike of touring, and he said something like: "If I want to play my drums, I have to go on the road with the band. I can't play them at home." The Stones used to have a facility in London (Bermondsey, I

I was looking for some info on Stu and Rocket 88 recordings when I ran across his obit in the LA Times. What a mangled bit of history! "In 1961 Stewart, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts became the first Rolling Stones when they performed near London. A fifth member, Brian Jones, who is also dead, was added soon after. Within months Stewart had been replaced by Mick Jagger, and

What I gather, from Greenfield, is that the Dallas rehearsal wasn't planned but called, at Keith's insistence, after a "subdued" performance in Kansas City.

Probably in the minority here, but I'm bored to death with this song. I could easily go the rest of my life without ever hearing it again. (Along with LSTNT and Satisfaction.)

Keith definitely gives Charlie "the look" to end the song, but it seems Charlie ended sooner than Keith intended. Keith is laughing as he flips Charlie off. I think this is just a good-natured "$%@! you" between long-time friends and bandmates. No one else could get away with it.

I was 14 in '71 and got this for Christmas. Whenever I hear a song off of SF, I'm right back there. Christmas lights, snow, candles, home from school on holiday break, smoking a joint in my room and listening to Side 2 through headphones. Moonlight Mile is sublime. I still get chills at the climax.

Quotehopkins I do remember the days when Truman Capote and a lot of literary figures were trying to get in on the Stones' massive rock and roll party. I believe Capote got onto the '72 tour because he was going to write a piece on it. He hated the experience and had nothing good to say. He never finished the article.
