For me it all seems desperately sad. Not disrespectful or inappropriate or anything so extreme. Just rather sad. And, dare I say it, a little tawdry. At least for me. Arguments will continue for all time about whether they should, or should not, continue. Whether they are, or are not, The Stones. One thing is definitely true, there is a tremendous amount of passion invested in this topic by

QuoteMisterDDDD QuoteGerardHennessy I'm totally mystified as to why you find my comment disrespectful. I'm equally mystified as to why you wouldn't think "whatever group of musicians stands on stage in the name of The Rolling Stones" is offensive. No biggie though. I see that you really believe it's not disrespectful, so no disrespect intended it would seem

Yet another week goes by and yet another step towards Hot Rocks completing 7 years on the Billboard 200. Now standing at 363 weeks - just one more week to go to reach the magic 364 week number to complete a 7 year chart lifespan. I have no idea why this specific milestone has attained such importance for me. But it has. It may be because extended chart placings are almost non-existent in the

God bless Rory Gallagher. A man who really carried the spirit of the blues in his heart and his soul. I'm delighted to see this excellent re-release has made the UK charts. I have splashed out on the deluxe version and it really is a delight and a joy. Huge thanks to Rory's brother Donal Gallagher and his nephew Daniel who continue to curate and administer the RG musical estate with

From the beginning of this discussion I have held the view that, in MY opinion, The Stones should bring things to a graceful conclusion. And that is all it was, ONE person's opinion. Nothing more. Several people became very annoyed with me and I was accused of being both disrespectful and indecent for daring to suggest such a thing. There was a lot of stuff about my impertinence towards

Latest Hot Rocks update. This week - September 8th 2021 - Hot Rocks clocked up week number 362 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Two weeks short of completing its 7th year on the chart. It is in good company, as fellow Stones-era performers on the chart include The Beatles (twice), Elton John, Bob Seger, The Beach Boys (also twice), CCR, Aerosmith and AC/DC. To mention just a few.

You are absolutely correct - the Rarities album was indeed a Starbucks release in the US. Here in the UK it was released more widely on Virgin Records in 2005. For someone like me this album was a Godsend as it gave me access to several tracks I had previously been unable to obtain. Subsequently I have treated myself to the boxed set of CD singles from the post 1970 period which has enabled m

I was always curious about those European albums too Kristian, like the one you mention - Around & Around. I guess they simply had a different combination of the same tracks we got in Britain. No actual new music as such. I have often wondered why albums were not standardised much sooner than they were? Both The Beatles and The Stones released very different versions of their albums in Br

I've just seen that Honk has entered the lower reaches of the UK midweek/update chart. I actually do like Honk. While it is hardly an earth shatteringly great album, it is a perfectly decent summary of some of The Stones better known material from their later years. It focuses on their singles of course, and bypasses some really good album tracks. But I'm pleased to see that there is so

Good, though not surprising, to see another surge in sales for Hot Rocks this week. Back up to No. 73 on the Billboard 200. Also back in the UK charts. It proves, yet again, that whatever Stones fans like me think, the good old warhorses are what the vast majority of music buyers want to hear from the band. And to a consummate businessman like Mick Jagger, this proves that a warhorse-rich set lis

Yes, still have it on vinyl. Also on CD as it happens. Loved having those Wolfman Jack snippets too. A top movie, and still one of my favourites. I love the line from John Milner (played memorably by Paul Le Mat) who said when the Beach Boys came on his car radio 'Music has all gone to heck since Buddy Holly died' BH was a big favourite of The Stones always.

Yes it is. In fact long past the time. Sadly the band has been little more than a greatest hits-type human jukebox for a long long time. But will they go on? Yes, they probably will. Not because it is the dignified or respectful thing to do, but because the current version of The Stones lives in some kind of parallel universe where performing on autopilot is what they do.
