Quoteslewan QuoteStonesfan2146 Well they opened with Not Fade Away on a full tour. All down the line doesn't seem completely impossible But unlikely that's true right, and it didn't work – at least not for the masses… Gotta disagree with that, Not Fade Away was an great opener for Voodoo Lounge, would they have used it for so many shows if it didn't work ? I loved All Ove

Yeah, to be creative in the moment without trying to copy something note for note, thats what turns my head. Maximum speed playing becomes finger excercises in noodling without a melody. I think Taylor is somewhat guilty of that on the Wembley solos, I prefer the slower paced YCAGWYW solo (infusing his Winter parts) or the more 'to the point' solos of Tumbling Dice from Bruxelles.

Compared to their peers, those players Mathijs mentions were among the elite players of their time. And they were performing and recording under the influence...without them doing drugs I doubt we would even be talking about their music today. As for Taylor, we will never know how it could have been in 2013, had he been given more room to get integrated with the music/band. It could have take

Quoteharlem shuffleSeen them once in concert in Oslo,and never more.Boring band with songs who sounds the same all of them.I went from the concert after five songs,absolutely boring Thats what I thought when I first heard them with the classic BIB album, it all sounded monotonous and similar. Rather dreary. But the devil is in the details and after repeated exposures, it dawned to me how great

MickT was more in need and accepted the role assigned to him. If he was part of the band on all the tracks, he could have developed his parts much more. A gimmick it became.

Yes, thank you so much for the music Frank. Rockman lost me completely there, why repost Alan Howe's blatantly biased and disrespectful orbituary for someone who has created much happiness with music ? Gotta love Liz Mitchell's sweet voice, yeah I know it's playback. And the stunning Precious Wilson singing live to a backing track. Oh, so you don't like that s

QuoteGasLightStreet QuoteDoxaIf one wants to hear how the original live chorus went for a comparison, it could be found on GIMME SHELTER movie. - Doxa That's been a consistent piss me off forever. That live version is so much better than what's on GYYYO, the studio version and anything live since - superior Rolling Stones, the ultimate Stones in that particular performance period.

QuoteDGA35Many say Powerage is their favourite album but it's the poorest selling Bon era album. Similar to Fair Warning, which many VH fans say is their favourite, but it too is the poorest selling of the original DLR era. The general public will buy the albums with famous tracks like Dirty Deeds, Highway to Hell, Let There Be Rock..etc, and they might miss out on Powerage, where all the

QuoteDoxaLet the music speak for itself. Namely, the statistics of any kind do not look very good for UNDERCOVER. It sold okay, like any Stones album, at the time (although weakly compared to the previous albums). But, for example, it is the least streamed Stones album to date, losing even to DIRTY WORK (and of singular tracks, the discussed "Pretty Beat Up" has a tough battle with &qu

QuoteGasLightStreet I bet that's the reason they do it in B, because it's how Keith wants to do it, to have it sound like it's his song, because the original in E isn't him (and the solo is a bit of a yawn where as in B it's Chuck Berry on crank!) and it's quite boring. Isn't it Mick who prefers singing it in B ? Although there's been inspiring live versi

without any real meaning.....maybe no storyline or grand message, but they convey a common emotion like desire in a 'great sounding way'. Pretty close to the definition of art...

Here's my early judgement, big hits like TD or JJF would get 4/3. A respectable effort all round, I hope there's more to come. 2/3: Angry - the "Please just..." chorus brings it down, great Keith licks 3/3: Get Close - cousin of CYHMK, cool sax solo 2/3: Depending On You 3/3: Bite My Head Off - pretty perfect, if you like the Sex Pistols that is 2/3: Whole Wide World

Doxa, I think you are getting carried away by your fear of Rolling Stones fans hating MJ. A fan of the Rolling Stones will be a fan of MJ. Some might with Keith should be making another JJF or Satisfaction, well whatever, Keith is all over the new album and rightly so.

Aren't we all jesters on the forums...sharing our frank opinions, making jokes or mocking/ridiculing others? As I get older, I get more restrained and hold it inside, not wanting to offend, but that's rather boring isn't it ?

A jester, court jester, fool or joker was a member of the household of a nobleman or a monarch employed to entertain guests during royal court. Jester's privilege is the ability and right of a jester to talk and mock freely without being punished. As an acknowledgement of this right, the court jester had symbols denoting their status and protection under the law.

Their past and present influencing it, influenced by it, completely entangled in the fabric of it all. They are everywhere, in art, music, photography, film, social media etc etc. Mainstream is the important distinction. In the past they were more part of youth culture and/or counter-culture as

Quotelem motlow Quoteskytrench Without Mick they would be overlooked, without Keith they would be a joke. So a band with Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman,Mick Taylor, Ron Wood and Mick Jagger would’ve been a joke? Yes, not having Keith kicking off the songs in his unorthodox style would seem so wrong, I'd call it a joke even though Ronnie would do a good imitation. Sure, the Steel Wheels tour w
