For moi, an interesting little read. I remember when I was stationed in Oklahoma in the late 1960s at Tinker AFB near Oklahoma City, that Tulsa was considered, regarding Oklahoma, as their San Francisco. The Oklahoma City folks I got to know thought Tulsa was a little too liberal and snobby regarding the rest of the state. Back then, the big money there was the oil companies working/headquartered

As they always put it in the series, The Wire, follow the money if you want to see what's going on and who's getting what. It's an interesting part of the article that notes the folks selling their catalog fudge how much they actually got. Makes you wonder if the Stones are ready to cash in and for how much.

Nice read regarding his Fender artist guitar and guitars/tone/playing in general. Keith gets a mention in it regarding his Tele playing style.

I know there's a bunch of Hag fans out there. Here's a nice collection of his songs. If you've never listened to Merle, it's a good place to start. One of the songs, Silver Wings, has a great cover version done by Linda Ronstadt. A number of songs many of us Hag fans like are probably not on the list, but that's the way these things work. Myself, I'd have included Wo

John Fogerty/CCR - Born On The Bayou. The E7 chord has rarely been used so effectively, IMHO. Yeah, he strikes a few other chords in the song, but E7 predominates. And what a groove. Fogerty/CCR:

Dang! Thought this would be pix of the band in bunny costumes planting Easter eggs around the garden, leaving Easter baskets hither and yon. How silly of me, though, how trippy it would have been of them.

Hey, MisterDDDD, love your pick out of the photos. I looked at all of them and thought this one was one of the coolest pix I've ever seen of Brian.

Some great photos here. I am guessing a number of them have shown up already on this site. Looking at the photos, a question: How tall was Brian Jones? The others? They all look not very tall, especially Brian, to my eyes at least.

I know, click bait, but there are some very cool songs on this list. I would venture that various members of the Stones and others listened to a number of these. One of the artists, Jimmy Rodgers, put out an album some years ago on which Mick and Keith performed as part of an all star band. If you're into old timey blues and r&b, some of these will be an entry into discovering other blue

Wow! The Apollo GS is one of the rockingest versions I've heard of it. They are wailing away at it. Made me think of seeing Keith and the Winos on their tours. That band really cooked. Hearing Clayton do a bit of You Are So Beautiful took me back to her comment in the article that the late Joe Cocker was Ray Charles in another form. I love the Ray Charles stylings in Cocker's voice and

I recall Nils playing local clubs in Baltimore and D.C., back in 1970s. Caught him and Grin once in Baltimore. I still have the first two Grin albums packed away. I've enjoyed a few of his songs over the years, but can't say I am a hardcore fan. He lives here in the Phoenix, Arizona area. A great player, but not a Rolling Stone. Here he is with Grin doing my fave song by them. There

FYI: This looks like an interesting read if you're into music/movie/telly history or history of an era. I know I certainly have a few albums from that time sitting in a box.

With the right amount of money you can probably get anyone to play at your wedding, even including Mister Zimmerman (a/k/a Bobby Dylan). The late Dean Martin's daughter, Claudia if I remember right, noted that she wanted Buffalo Springfield to play at her wedding or birthday party, I don't remember which, and her dad got the band to play for her. As Mister Zimmerman once sang, "Mon

So, am reading this article on pioneering women in early r&r and it notes that KR personally asked Etta James to open for the Stones during their 1978 tour. Did she join in with them on any songs? I don't remember her as an opening act but I don't remember the Stones tour that year either, meaning did I attend a Stones show (my mind goes fuzzy at some recollections) during '78?

Sweet read re a possible comeback for Tower. For a number of us, those were the days, wasting a Saturday afternoon at the record/CD store, sampling various sounds in little listening booths or through headphones used by how many other people before you. I used to take a coffee and lunch with me into some stores as I knew my day was gonna be spent there looking for god knows what in the record/CD

Thank you for the post. Too bad mom and dad aren't around anymore for me to drive them crazy with me blasting original Stones out of the hi-fi. The Stones weren't cute enough for them like, y'all know, that other group.

One of the great soul/r&b singers/shouters. Here's a short read. He cut some great songs. His take on "Hey Jude" is still cool, IMHO. One also, IMHO again, has to cherry pick through his recordings to find cuts well worth keeping. The read: Hey Jude: Gospel stylings: Funk (the Stones surely based a few tunes on this style, like Hot Stuff and Miss You with its wal

"Thought TEXAS was ready to have BIG live maskless pack-'em-in events! Yee-hah!!" Yee hah, indeed. I know this will probably cause me some trouble, get this thread removed/banned, maybe me also, but, I can only reply as I saw posted elsewhere - "Wearing a mask is not a political statement. It's an I.Q. test."

Back On The Chain Gang - my fave Pretenders song followed by My City Is Gone. Re her Dylan covers, they're nice, but alas, not essential listening beyond the first or second hearings, IMHO. Than, again, very few people capture the essence and nuances of Dylan's songs better than him. The soundtrack and performances for the movie I'm Not There comes close. FYI - the movie I'm N

Wow. This brought back a memory. Many moons ago on a family vacation we stopped at Luray, Virginia, for a tour of the caverns there. What struck us as odd was that the town was filled with replicas of the General Lee, the car from the Dukes of Hazzard television show. Talking with some of the folks who owned these cars we discovered that they were there as part of an annual celebration of the sho
