They are on average young, and the are slim, because they walk a lot, for hours. Number of people being overweight is 36% in USA, 8% in Tanzania (60 million population), and 9% in Nigeria (200 million population). Covid-19 is more d

Interesting reading regarding the African continent. What should be remembered regarding the relatively young population, is that the life-expectancy is lower than what it is on other continents. It's only 62 in Zimbabwe, for instance.

Good post, georgie48. Whilst these groups were all popular in many regions - although, Paul Revere and The Raiders barely registered in the U.K. -, their lasting impact and influence is minimal. Many have moaned about the likes of Nirvana and Radiohead being inducted, yet, they're two highly influential, groundbreaking acts. Being of the 60's generation shouldn't be a free ticket;

She really did get her break through the Stones. As Tears Go By was gifted to her, and wasn't it Andrew Loog Oldham who discovered her? After the hits dried-up - a handful of top-ten singles; mostly forgotten - it was her relationship with Mick that kept her in the spotlight.

Quotenick1970 Please can someone remind of which particular Stones songs were influenced by Spector. Little by little is one I think.. Well, Little by Little is merely a reworking of a Jimmy Reed song. Spector has a co-credit for some reason, though.

A groundbreaking, innovative producer. I’ll always enjoy his work. As a human being, however? He was a murderer. There isn’t really anything to add to that point. MisterDDDD has it right: Rest in peace, Lana Jean Clarkson

QuoteDandelionPowderman That's a tough one... Perhaps The Last Time? And definitely IORR. I wouldn't touch any of the other songs, though. I agree, actually. The significance of The Last Time has little to do with the quality of the song itself. It's a great recording, and important historically, but there are better. It's Only Rock 'n Roll is good fun, but hardly

QuoteDandelionPowderman They've played it to death in concert, but Tumbling Dice belongs on that list, imo. Angie, BS and HTW, too. All brilliant songs and perfect recordings. All you've mentioned could be candidates on any given day, for sure. With the four you've mentioned in mind, which four tracks from the list warrant omitting?

I'd omit It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It) and replace it with Under My Thumb. Also, Brown Sugar is one of the quintessential Stones moments. In my opinion, it should be there in place of Best Of Burden: an OK track, and a huge hit in the U.S., yet, doesn't hold the same level of gravitas elsewhere.

QuoteGreen Lady QuoteBig Al Thank you for taking the time, NICOS. For a group that released their first record in 1963 and had their final ‘global hit’ in 1981, I suppose it’s about right. The Stones surely have many younger fans then the demographic here would suggest, I’d imagine. It’s just that here is, perhaps, not a medium they’d chose to gravitate towards. I can well believe that younger

Quoteaudun-eg You can see here that he plays two strings tuned so that he easily can play the boogie figure without having to stretch his fingers. I seem to remember Wyman himself stating in an interview that he couldn't really play the guitar other than some strumming in some open tunings.

QuoteMisterDDDD Not a huge sampling, and perhaps the over 50 crowd represented here more during the down time than say if there were a tour upcoming etc.. but also may represent the fans fairly accurately. Hard to say, but my bet is the average age goes down some when more fans are participating during a tour. Thanks for adding up the posts. Roughly- 69% over 50 31% under 50 Considering
