I read a biography of Gram some years ago. Yes, his family money gave him the ability to walk away from projects that no longer interested him, to the chagrin of his less wealthy collaborators. Also, while he was hanging out at Nellecote, Keith became so alarmed by his drug intake that he took him aside and expressed his concern. As the biographer noted, if Keith Richards thinks you're ov

QuoteStoneage Strange thing - Brian had big eye bags in his early twenties already. That is usually something you acquire with old age. I don't mean to be rude but I can't help noticing it. Yes, it's striking how much his appearance changed in the space of two or three years. I assume it was due to heavy drinking, which can cause that sort of bloat and puffiness.

QuoteMore Hot Rocks Quote24FPS QuoteCooltoplady Quote24FPS QuoteMore Hot Rocks Bill never played with soul or heart. Just root notes with an 3rd or octave added. Pretty lame player. Glad he's gone. Your poor ears. The exact opposite is true. Bill could play one note and give a song emotional depth. Darryl has no emotional depth in his bass playing. oh yeah like Sympathy, Live With Me, Fi

Quotegeorgie48 Braun indeed said that Aldrige’s image inspired him. Hence the second white line in the tongue. He also incorrectly claimed that Pasche was also inspired by that image, but later on admitted his wrongbeing there. Walter Velez and Tony DiMiceli werd his supporting technical staff helping him to deliver the most famous image. Do you know where this information might be available? I

I'm glad this topic came up. When I was a teenager back in the 70s I heard Rory Gallagher's name quite a bit, but somehow I never got to know his music. I liked "What's Going On" from the Isle of Wight film quite a bit, and I'm looking forward to learning more.

QuoteCaptainCorella QuoteThe Joker The Stones are a business partnership between Mick and Keith, with Mick as CEO. The final decisions are made by Mick, with Keith having a say. The rest are employees, some of whom get a cut of the royalties, but who don’t really get a vote in the business decisions. That's simply wrong. The band members are equal partners.

Quotejohn lomax It would be ironic though, wouldn't it - I mean, we have had deluxe versions of Exikes and Sone Girls where they have dusted off some old unfinished tracks....and Tattoo You was an album made up largely of previously unfinished tracks that they dusted off...so a deluxe version of Tattoo You would perhaps be scraping the bottom of the barrel (ie they 'd need to find some

Quotetatters QuotePalace Revolution 2000 I will be in the minority here but Johnny Winter has never done anything for me. Me neither. While I have tremendous respect for the albums he managed to coax out of Muddy Waters during the last years of Muddy's life, I walked out on JW when I saw him play an intimate club date in the early 80s. In fact, I think I may actually have left whil

Quotefloodonthepage Quotelem motlow That review is bullshit, it’s from decades after the album was released so it Captures none of the zeitgeist or the place the band was in at the time.he actually said the Stones may have been influenced by Traffic. No concept of the times, that would be like a new U2 album coming out and saying it had a drive by truckers influence. The Stones were the premie

I'm not willing to guess what music people will like in the future, but the band itself will not be forgotten. Given its cultural importance, even the most casual survey of the second half of the 20th Century will mention the music of the era, with specific mention of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

Quotekeefriff99 Quotejbwelda The Rolling Stones lost a lot when they lost Bill Wyman. He was one of the foundation stones they all depended on. Those were his bass notes. He was part of the stage personality, the anti-personality actually. And from what I have heard, he smoked weed non-stop, like any good bass player should. jb I thought Bill was the straight one in the band. Now I certainl

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuotePietro GHS had the superior producer -- Jimmy Miller. When listening to IORR I sometimes get the impression that the novice producers were learning on the job. Sometimes the Glimmer Twins didn't glimmer. Off topic: Somebody needs to do a thorough appreciation of what Jimmy Miller meant to the Rolling Stones. It's no coincidence that the Rolling Stones&

QuoteRedhotcarpet Ghs is the mature album and the last ”real” album with real songs from the real era when they still mattered. Nailed it. Of course it suffers by comparison with the Big Four LPs that preceded it, but in retrospect GHS is a really solid album. No filler to speak of, and the songs are actually about something. IORR is the point where they seem to have decided that having a

Quotebuttons67 its there and we all identify with it easily but for me it dominates too much merchandise I agree. In terms of graphics they have settled into a very easy rut of doing a variation on the tongue logo as the emblem for whatever the current project is.
