QuoteDandelionPowderman Why is this "Tom Waits"? [...] I agree. Apart from having a "rough" voice and loosely based on blues, jazz and "lounge", I don't see much similarities, neither musically nor in the way the are using their voices. As I said before, I see more similarities with Leonard Cohen (later years) and CH. Substantial Damage might have a slig

Quote24FPS Quotefloodonthepage If by "latest Stones albums" we say post-Wyman era...which I guess no one said that that is the agreed upon definition, but that's what I'll use for my answer, then my answer is no. Babylon is better than Crosseyed Heart, even with some of the misfires on Babylon. Babylon is daring in ways that no Stones related album has been since Undercover

QuoteMaindefender Why does Blues In The Morning get mixed reviews? Such a raucous song, supposedly spit out rapidly after Pierre handed Keith guitar that fit that genre. Hopefully the new album will have awesome numbers reminiscent of this song and B&L tunes....something that strikes my nervous system Because it's loud but without dynamics, without a melody, without a riff or lick or g

QuoteHairball Crosseyed Heart is the winner. A Bigger Bang, Bridges, Voodoo, Steel Wheels, Dirty Work, and Undercover all have a couple decent tunes, but overall the albums are incohesive and there are some true stinkers on all of them. Crosseyed Heart on the other hand is near perfect as far as consistency and flow. Like reading a book from start to finish without being able to put it down, an

Quotepadre69 QuotematxilA really very very very bad one, however, was one about Keith Richards: "Keith Richards: The Origin of the Species" by Julien Temple. That was just pathethic and the blame lies mainly on Julien Temple in his choice of hectic editing, in his attempt to find meaning were there is noone ("rock n roll was caused by the nazis" or something idiotic like that)

There are a lot of good ones about the Stones or Keith Richards, mainly because they are about the Stones. I have seen a few other good ones on the yearly Barcelona In-Edit festival. There was a very good one about Lemmy: "Lemmy: 49% motherf**ker. 51% son of a b****." a few years ago that was fantastic. A really very very very bad one, however, was one about Keith Richards: "Kei

QuoteDandelionPowderman Quoteliddas I always had a bad relationship with vocals in general. It’s a sort of mental block. I have some general knowledge of music, but don’t understand singing, not even the basics. I can normally say if an instrument is out of tune, playing the wrong note or has a bad timing, but vocals are Arab to me!. If I had to sing lead to save my life, I would be dead! All

Quotekeithsman QuoteDandelionPowderman < auto tune is used to cover the fact the singer cannot carry a tune on their own> Not here. It's used to obtain a sound or an effect that was modern a few years ago. The thing is though, Mick has never been able to replicate the vocals live that we hear in the Studio, this has been the case throughout his life, from Satisfaction to Start M

A bit of a pity that they have two versions. The one with the videoclip is the short version with only one single "loud climax" part. The long one has a second "loud climax" part just after the harmonica solo and before the reggae-dub break. I like the longer version better, because, hell, it's longer. I never thought I'd say this, after so many years of mediocri

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteKRiffhard QuoteDiamondDog7 (please, before you read...don't shoot me! LOL ) Great news indeed. The Stones are working again! BUT.... I really don't like this song at all. Why? - Lyrics aren't that good. - Jagger's voice is still good, but he sings un-naturally. - Dull beat and overrated. - Backing vocals are annoying and simple. -

Quotebv I feel the same kind of hostile mood they had at Altamont 1969 here. Time to cool down everybody. It was just a tribute to WHO and the health workers. Not really an application for a grammy. I think they did a fine performance. No need to fight over details here. It was a lot of fun watching it and that's all one can expect from a thing like that. I am bit curious on how they did i

Quotegeorgelicks We're at the beggining of a worldwide pandemic, the world is shutting down as we speak and you think that the Stones are worried about new music right now?

Quotegeorgelicks Mick's in Mustique, Keith in his home in CT and both Ronnie and Charlie in London. The album is the latest thing in their minds right now, I can't see a band of 70+ something near a studio for a long time. They can use Zoom to make long-distance recordings.

QuoteTimDog What's your favorite example of Keith's playing in this century? It could be a great solo or a killer tone that you love. Live or studio. Rolling Stones, solo or sideman. I'm interested in the responses. Well, I'd say my favourite Keith's songwriting of the 21st century would be "Illusion" on Crosseyed Heart. As far as playing is concerned, maybe

QuoteDandelionPowderman Of course he can. And BE really got new life on the road, where he developed the melody line in the verses. Made it an even stronger tune, imo. Starts at 4:02 Nice link and they are great live, but still, BE does not convince me. But it's okay, we all need a pee break during concert. With the Stones, it's during Angie.

Quotedcba Quoteliddas Surprised to read how many do not like Steve Jordan's drumming and drum sound. Love it. The interaction between him and Keith is truly incredible. It is the main ingredient that makes the Winos a completely different beast than the Stones Yeah the Winos have a "musicians' musician" side to their music that limits their appeal imo.
