To change the subject SLIGHTLY, let me ask the experts here. I've learned "Prodigal Son" in open-E like on the record and can play it reasonably well, but parts of it sound empty, nowhere near as full as the guitar on the record. I don't to this day know for sure how many guitars are on the record. Is there just one guitar compressed as hell so it sounds just as full when pic

I'm sorry but I can't see Brian getting a 100,000 pound lump sum from the Stones. That's just a story from the Sanchez book, I think. I don't think the Stones could have gotten their hands on that kind of ready cash, and if they could have, I don't see Jagger and company parting with that kind of money for Brian or anyone else. I see what Wyman is quoted as saying but I&#

I bought the book when it was brand-new (having read a piece about it in Playboy) and it was paperback. It was my first bio on the Stones and I remember sitting on the back porch at the age of 16 eating Reese's Cups and drinking Mr. Pibb, wondering why I had acne, and being entranced by this book. It was my introduction to the Stones (pretty much) and my introduction to drugs and what some o

QuoteMathijs On don't believe at all that's Jones on acoustic. That's Richards to my ears. Mathijs well, then, would it stand to reason that the electric guitar was the basic track guitar, since it starts the song? And the acoustic was added later. I can't see how they could have overdubbed the instrument that starts the whole song.

9. Money
Here's something I've long wondered about. In early 1970 (or thereabouts) Jagger and Co. learned that the Stones were effectively broke, and what little money they did have was going to be swallowed up by Her Majesty if they didn't leave the country soon. All they netted from the '69 American tour was close to $100,000 split five ways. Touring in Europe cost almost as much mon

[ Because it's made of leftovers I find it falls apart half way through. Side 2 is really Jagger's show. In restrospect I find Emotional Rescue and Undercover more interesting and fresh. And the band is playing so tight on them. If you didn't know it was leftovers, you'd never be able to tell.

I get amazed that someone would call this "filler." From the beginning it has been one of my faves off TY. It's a so-so song, but a GREAT track. Charlie and Bill swing like mad. I used to bang my head like a hyper pigeon to this track. Tommy

I love Peter Bruntnell! So eerie that you posted about him because I just got a Facebook message from him yesterday. We did a tour of Sweden together in 2013. Lovely guy, and his song "By the Time My Head Gets to Phoenix" is a killer song. So weird you just mentioned him today. Tommy

It's also my understanding that Joey Spampinato was too GOOD a hang. He got along too well with Keith and Ronnie and Mick didn't want another party boy in the band.

QuoteThe Sicilian QuoteFrom4tilLate Mick acted as spokesman for the band, greeted him, shook his hand and introduced him to the other band members. He was told they would play a couple of songs and told what they were. Would you like to listen to the records first? No thank you, I think I know those two. (I don't know what the songs were.) The most important part of the story is not know

GT of the E Street Band was the first one they called. He said they were terrible, way out of playing shape. (If you're worried about sources, GT told me that himself.) Joey of NRBQ nailed the audition. He was Keith's final choice and he would have been tremendous. Pity. Mick picked Darryl, Charlie broke the tie vote because Darryl played with Miles and that's all Charlie needed to

Bill has said there are songs wrongly credited on Exile, and that he played on more tracks than he got credit for. He didn't mention any song specifically, but this track sounds like Bill to me.

The name Dirty Mac was also a play on Fleetwood Mac, as John and his lads were playing the blues and Fleetwood Mac and their blues revival was all the rage in England at the time.

Hi everybody. To my knowledge, there has never been much discussion about who roadied the famous Stones tours. Does anybody know who was on the crew in, say, 1969? We all know that Stu and Sam Cutler were involved, but were there any other memorable characters in the road crew? All those Ampeg cabinets sure didn't move themselves from city to city.

I actually enjoyed his insights. I've never liked his contributions to the Stones but they must know something I don't, rich as they are. God bless him.

In "Dazed & Confused" a guide vocal is audible during the break down before the violin bow part happens. And on "Shattered" Mick's guide vocal can be heard. On the Some Girls album it was rather tricky to keep the guide vocal out at all given how they recorded. Chris Kimsey set up a small PA system with the speakers on each side of Charlie's kit. Mick's g

There was a time when I couldn't imagine listening to music without getting stoned, or doing much of anything else for that matter. It's been three years since I last smoked dope or drank and only now am I really getting the same feeling at concerts and listening to music that I had back in the innocent days of my teens before I ever drank and smoked at all.
