I’m reminded of an old Stones story, where it was said that Mick liked to purposely make his vocals hard to understand so that people would listen to the record over and over again to make out what he’s saying. In this case, it’s blurring the lines between old vs young mick so that we keep listening to the song over and over again to see which Mick is singing. Really though, it shouldn’t m

Happy to see this tune finally released, I’ve enjoyed listening to it throughout the day. As far as which Mick is singing, to me it sounds like 70’s Mick on the main vocals, but I think I hear 2020 Mick background vocals in my left headphone at the very end of the song when they’re repeating the chorus over and over again. If it is 2020 Mick on the main vocals, my hats off to him for pullin

I don’t really post much here and haven’t checked-in over the last few days, so it was a nice surprise when I saw the news on Facebook that the Stones were releasing a new song. Enjoying listening to it. It’s sounds like a Stones song with a little influence from the Black Keys, which is fine with me as I like them too. It also looks promising on the new album front in that now that they ar

As a child of the late 80s/early 90s, I knew Little Richard mostly from making guest spots on tv shows and commercials, and of course Tutti Frutti. As others have mentioned, he’s definitely not underrated...he’s just not as public as he was when I was growing up, so it just seems like he’s somewhat forgotten. While the Stones never covered a Little Richard song, I’d say that Rip This Joint

QuoteElmo Lewis The Exile re-issue seemed so strange to me. Is this all they had? Why some of these choices? How about some raunch from the basement? If I had to speculate, I’d guess a couple of reasons they chose the songs they did was because: 1. Marrying 2010 Mick lyrics and vocals with 1969-1971 instrumentals was a challenge. For example, maybe he took a stab at Potted Shrimp and it eith

I’ve enjoyed the remixes to the albums that have been done for the Beatles reissues. As far as bonus material, the Esher Demos from the White Album reissue is the only worthwhile content in my opinion. Then again, I’m not really interested in multiple takes of a song, unless there are some interesting differences. As far as the Stones reissues, I thought EOMS, Some Girls and Sticky Fingers wer

I picked up a collection of Rolling Stone Keith Richards interviews last year when he turned 75. One of the interviews was from shortly before Talk Is Cheap was released, and in it he talked a lot about wanting to see rock n’ roll “grow up”. He saw it as the Stones’ responsibility to help it grow up and to leave the newest trends to the younger bands. He seemed inspired to take up the challenge,

I think if we’re being honest with ourselves, the only reason we give this album any sort of chance is because it has the Rolling Stones’ name on it. From the album cover down to the songs, everything seems like a yuppie’s idea of what the Rolling Stones should be. It’s really hard to believe this is the same band who wrote all those classic songs from the 60’s and 70’s that we all love. Ha

I think some of you are missing Bjornulf’s point. Of course the Stones care about their performance and entertaining the fans. What they don’t care about are the fans who are complaining they only played 19 songs instead of 20, or complain that they should be playing Citadel instead of Miss You. Those are nitpicking types of complaints. -Cam

I live in the DC area. As annoying as scooters are, our bigger safety issue are cyclists who feel entitled to ride however they please, yet expect everyone else to follow the laws. And I say this as someone who used to bike to work every day.

I was at Landover/DC and NJ 1. Really hard to decide, because both were special in their own way. Mercy, Mercy was such an awesome moment. I think I’d have to go with NJ 1 though, because it had more of my favorite songs on the setlist. I’ve had such a great time, I’m really tempted to catch them again in Miami. -Cam

The Let it Bleed album is getting a lot of love tonight. 6 of the 9 songs played - 7 if you want to count HTW and Country Honk as the same song. I know they haven’t played GS yet, but we know it’s probably coming up. If they’d played Live With Me and Love in Vain we could have had the complete album! - Cam

DEmerson, I was thinking of posting something similar to your post too. I’ve only been going to shows since 2013, so all I’ve ever experienced is the so-called “Warhorse Era”. But even if you break down each of the 4 concerts I’ve been too, anyone can see how different each show was. It’s only 4 - but I apologize in advanced for the length: Washington, DC - 2013 Get Off of My Cloud IORR PIB

Looking forward to the show tomorrow. This will be my second show of the tour - the first time I’ve seen multiple shows on a tour, so cross that off my Stones bucket list. I’m assuming this will be the last time they play in the US, but I also thought that in 2013, 2015 and 2016, so here’s hoping I continue being wrong! -Cam

I can’t help but roll my eyes when I read someone calling the Stones “lazy”. Often enough it’s usually a fan who doesn’t agree with something that the band is doing. “They’re not switching up their setlists enough because they’re lazy.” or “They’re not releasing new music because they’re lazy.” Please tell me how a 75 year old man who’s running a business, writing and recording songs, rehe

No one will ever replace Bobby, but Karl’s solo and the little touches he added brings a nice new flavor to Brown Sugar. I think it’s perfectly okay in general for the supporting band members to add their own touches to the songs. - Cam

This was my fourth Stones show and it topped the other three I’ve been to (DC in 2013, Nashville in 2015 and Desert Trip Week 1). It probably helped that it was the best seats I’ve ever had (Section A1, Row 10 - Ronnie’s side) for a Stones show. Mercy Mercy was absolutely the highlight. There was a great moment when Mick breaks into a falsetto, the crowd pops and I saw of flash of Keith on the

They did mercy mercy twice at the first Chicago rehearsal (I was there) it would be a special moment if they did that or no expectations.

I’m not holding my breath for it, but it has been reported that the band rehearsed Mercy, Mercy before the tour started. Last time the song was played was at Hyde Park 50 years ago - a concert that was dedicated to Brian. Don Covay also has a connection to Washington DC, so they have an opportunity to acknowledge Brian and a local artist, which they’ve been known to do. -Cam

So is their other compilation album Tattoo You consider a must-have? I kid, I kid. As much as everyone rags on Honk, my two year old loves it. He instantly recognizes the album when he sees it and screams “Honk!” and wants me to play a song from it. So while today’s music buyers think this album is a waste, maybe tomorrow’s buyers will have a different feeling for it. - Cam

I think we can all agree that we’d love to see the Stones work with another producer, but we’re split into two groups: 1. People who accept that the Stones aren’t going to make a change and have enjoyed some of the music that has been created during the Don Was era. This group also seems to acknowledge that Mick and Keith have a large part in the production of the album, so it’s not entirely h
