QuoteCousinC You always have to consider the times. In late 60s/ early 70's Rock music it was all about lead guitar playing. I remember critics from 1970 shows writing of "just uninspired, simple RocknRoll without any virtuoso performance". A few years later with punk it all changed. Woody coming in at the right time again. So true. But the punk influence just lasted a c

A true gem, alongside "Words of Wisdom", within an album I otherwise locked myself out of believing Keith Richards has anything to add to the incredible legacy he had already by then achieved (I haven't changed that opinion ever since). The video reminds me that of "Following The River". Although lacking that artistic ambition and controversary the Stones and Jagger vi

Taylor really did overplay at times. Many, here, evidently really enjoy the noodling, but it detracts from the raucousness of Keith's rhythm-work a little. I suppo

QuoteTaylor1 I was just listening to Midnight Rambler from Brussels without the vocals to focus on the guitars and Taylor and particularly Keith are on fire.Anyone who says Keith wasn’t playing well on that tour should listen to Rambler .His playing including his solos are ferocious and perfectly rhythmic I personally think that that particular performance of "Midnight Rambler" is Kei

It will pass very soon "Hate You See You Go" (12.3 mil, #43), and being such a steady streamer months after its relaese, it looks it will even catch "Anybody Seen My Baby?" (18,1

Pink Floyd is up there with the Beatles, Stones and Zeppelin among the biggest bands of all time. Add there Queen and U2 and we have quite an representation of incredibly famous and popular rock bands from those Isles... Hmmm.. of those mentioned I have never thought how much I prefer one over the other (after The Stones, that is). I probably like more Pink Floyd over Zeppelin. And certainly (

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteGasLightStreet Anyone else find it odd that Mick misses the start of the vocal with Keith at 2:14 in the single mix "when I come a knockin'"? Yep. Could easily have been corrected. Hence it's 1974 vocals. Good that it wasn't corrected. I think that makes a charming loose feel to it. And altogether I think the chorus is such a treasure to l

Haha... I always have associated the term 'superfan' to our moderator and to the way I've seen him using it: referring to the people who follow the Stones from gig to gig all over the world.

I think Clapton did a fitting job. Nothing spectacular for sure but I guess that was not the purpose. Not to invent a wheel again, but just to play with the guys music they all love with no intention to stand out individually (I wonder what it had been like with Jeff Beck - 'hold your horses, man'...). So much mutual history there. Of course, on paper it was such a dream team from the

RIP Eddie Van Halen. Not any personal favourite in guitar department but that is just my personal opinion and tells more about my ancient taste and unability to follow the evolution of guitar rock idiom. But not so stupid I am not that I don't recognize a genius when I see it (like in the case of Paul McCartney that I for some odd idiosyncratic reasons can't stand...). And that was Eddi

QuoteElmo Lewis The Hampton release has made it kinda unnecessary ..... We sure enjoyed reliving the concert in the summer of 82 though. Faves are UMT, 20 Flight, and TIOMS. Yeah, kinda... but the thrilling opening of STILL LIFE - you know, a little snippet of Ellington tune, then a sudden burst of audience noise, the introduction and the majestic opening riff of "Under My Thumb&quo

Thank you, Rockman, for all that good material in regard to B&L! I especially like Mick's comment about Keith and Ronnie interlocking so well. The thing is that he very rarely makes such - or any - remarks about 'his' guitarists or how they play. It generally sounds like he doesn't care what happens in the guitar department or about any nuances there.... - Doxa

Quote24FPS QuoteDoxa Mick seemed to hint that by saying that the next songs in his list would have included Dylan numbers or something)... So VOL 2 would be also repitition in artistical sense too (if not taking a Dylan route or something...). So my guess is that for them this short blues excursion, no matter how popular it turned out to be, is now like 'been there, done that'. -

Is it really a question of 'facing a fact' when speculating possible scenarios to happen or not in future.... But I hear you. There is a rather big possibility there that we will never see them touring again. But I am not ready to reflect yet what that would mean to me personally or to the whole Stones community in general.... still hoping for the best. And we have still good reasons

QuoteDandelionPowderman Which song was PIB "inspired" by? At the time "Paint It Black" was recorded there had been on the charts - just a few months earlier - "My World Is Empty Without You" by Supremes.

QuoteStoneage Jagger is already stealing songs from the charts. Like Anybody Seen My Baby for instance. There is nothing new in that.

Quote24FPS I think it would be impossible to do a follow up Volume 2, because it would be too forced. This was quick, down and dirty without worrying about their reputation. Most importantly it retains their blues credibility stretching all the way back to the first album. I have similar thoughts. B&L was a product of pure inspiration, and of time and place, in which all the stars were in

When it came out, I listened it for months very heavily, probably more than any 'new' album by anyone for ages, but since then not so much. But that doesn't mean I don't like it any longer or it is not a very good album (it is). Namely, by that criterion I would say the same about EXILE or LET IT BLEED... It belongs to the albums I put on when I happen to have a right mood. It
