I agree with all of the above comments... Robert Plant is brilliant these days. And has been for quite some time. His body of solo work is excellent and diverse.

I remember hoping George, Paul, and Ringo would play with, say, Elvis Costello or someone. Elvis did All You Need Is Love, which teased my fantasy a bit. I also hoped the Stones would play! I remember the MTV folks kept saying, "All the members of the Stones are reportedly present in Philly!" I was most excited about Led Zeppelin... which was a sloppy performance all around. Agreed on t

Amps may impact the way a band sounds on stage, but the way the album sounds is largely dependent upon post production. Mixing and mastering can make a fat show sound thin and a thin show sound fat! And that doesn't even take overdubs into consideration.

The Pogues did a fabulous cover of HTW. Cat Power did my favorite cover of Satisfaction.

I love Charlie. Loved his style-- his early playing and his late, "lazy" styles and habits, were always perfect for me. BUT... SJ is CRUSHING it. He is tight. He is solid. He's perfect.

Shattered, 1978 live. Four outrageous bashes on the crash cymbal. Nothing like it. Just launches the song into a different realm.

I agree, best live performance ever of that song. Gave me a new respect for the Foo Fighters, who I never cared for much. They nailed it, tricky rhythm and all. Stones just generally blast through it Chuck Berry style, but the Fighters crushed it, gave it superb energy, lifted Mick off his damn feet and Mick sang his heart out. It was so good to see that energy again. Legendary performance.

In Bruce's excellent autobiography he discusses his substance use, namely alcohol, and his depression (and the antidepressants he desperately relies on), and I was left unconvinced he had it all under control. The ad was weird indeed. I didn't watch the SB, but I saw that ad. Love Bruce. Sounds like an error in judgment on his part. Both the DWI and the ad!

Yes, makemeburnthecandle, that is what I have heard from Fauci as well. Just Tuesday morning he was interviewed live, and I heard him say that if all goes well, we are looking at returning to normal in fall. I have also heard other health experts at the national level say similar things.. "I am hopeful to attend a baseball game in a stadium filled to capacity this summer," was what on

I didn't like Yes as a kid, but definitely went through a Rush phase... then as I got older, I enjoyed revisiting old Yes albums (I studied them as a young drummer, but didn't get into them at the time) and now I have an appreciation for early Yes. Rush, on the other hand, comes off with a bit more of a cheese factor to me these days. I loved Moving Pictures and 2112 as a kid, but can

James Jagger should play Mick... I know, I know, absolutely not going to happen. but oh my. Or Rami Malek, if he hadn't already played Freddie... He would have been an even better Mick Jagger, I believe. Yeah, this project makes me nervous as much as it does excited. I'll watch, but with much anxiety over how it could so easily fail and fail badly.

Bloody heck. That song, posted a few days ago, the single... It's just another load of copped Zeppelinesque riffs and Bonhamesque fills and Plantesque vocalizations. There is really nothing expressively creative about this band. I can only imagine their fame is due to taking a portion of the Zeppelin formula, a watered down one at that, and offering it up to the many young people who simpl

I agree w/ Gaslight. Undercover by a miiiile. Undercover is the last truly great album by The Rolling Stones, imho. This is the band at their most mature and intelligent as artists. I still love listening to this album, and I bought it the day it was released, when I was 11. SW, otoh, was an album written and recorded for the stadium. It’s not nearly as awful as Dirty Work, but it’s over-reve

Sounds very rough, doesn’t sound like Charlie even? I think those horns may be synth horns as well. Just 7+ minutes of a riff with other ideas woven in. That’s my take.

Devils and Dust was a great western themed album, as well as some of Ghost of Tom Joad and Nebraska. Bruce has had a fascination with the American west most of his life. The Western Stars album is influenced by “70’s California AM radio songs.” Let the man write what he wants, he’s earned it. I like the album and look forward to the E Street Band record whenever it comes our way.

Interesting to see this is acknowledged by Keith. With very few exceptions, I have not enjoyed the live recordings from Steel Wheels on nearly as much as all those that came before. I never saw the Stones before then, I was too young. I loved witnessing every live show I’ve seen from ‘89 on, but yes, the massive production and bigger band indeed lost my interest musically. There has always bee

I don't understand why the drums are so sparse and conservative. If it's Zak playing, he has every capability to turn it on much more than that, and I feel this song really starves for a richer, more vibrant beat, and less effect on the drum. It sounds like a Who song, EXCEPT for the drums. I like Zak's playing in the bits of live performances I've seen, but here the song j

Yeah, BTZ is hideous. I was 14 when this record came out, so very desperate for the release of the album. I liked Harlem Shuffle enough, but there was over a month between that single and the album release. I just remember one song after another thinking, man, this is just not good. BTZ was embarrassingly bad. I couldn’t decide if it was worse than Hold Back or not, but it was painfully bad.

MT played the jam portion of this on a solo tour in ‘99, and I stood right in front of him in a club and watched his fingers as he played the solo. Just a magical experience. I’ve enjoyed seeing it at Stones shows, including ‘13 with MT, but the studio version is just unmatched in terms of the performance of the whole song.

Keep checking here for news of the next album... I agree with GLS that Undercover was the last truly great studio album. BtB is the best since, imho, but still not anything like 1983 and prior. Now does that mean they can't produce a great record in 2019 or thereafter? They are absolutely capable of putting out something great; they just need to acknowledge that they are a different band t

I think the ESB will keep going as long as Bruce wants.. They’ve already lost (and replaced) a few key guys in the band. I don’t see why that won’t keep happening as long as Bruce wants to keep touring with his band. I miss Clarence and Danny, but I’m still looking forward to the next tour, and any that may follow.

There's also a tune called 'Stones'... I'm eager to hear what this record has to offer. Bruce's records over the last couple decades have been solid. The last two studio releases were less appealing to me, but they were advertised as more or less leftovers and revisits from other albums. The man still puts his heart and soul into his writing and playing.

How about the craziness going on during Satisfaction?! I love the noise happening there, makes me wonder how psychedelic the Rolling Stones might have become had Brian Jones not left the band (and had he not drowned).

I’ve never heard this entire thing before now, I’m embarrassed to say. What a total joy. Boy oh boy do I hope there’s a reel of this somewhere that can be remastered and released... Anybody have any thoughts to share? Will/could this ever become a vault release?
