Man, I want some of the stuff you're smoking! Oh yes I'm dead serious. Sway is easily one of their best tracks. You guys are talking about Brian Jones as a genius musician, I'm sure he could

Riots of screaming girls (and teenage boys) who wasn't there for the music but for the pretty boys on stage. It wasn't 'til the US tour of '69 that people actually came to listen to the band. Altamont late-1969, that's what I call a riot, people getting killed by the Hells Angels. It wasn't 'til the late 60's that people would associate the Stones as in cah

QuoteneptuneAnd here's a little advice for DiscoVolante: shut up and go get England's Newest Hitmakers, 12x5, and Now! Those three albums should get you started in understanding the roots of the Rolling Stones and why they became the greatest rock and roll band in the world. Hey I've made myself through the Stones entire discography countless times and I did my Stones history home

QuoteHis MajestyWhat from the Taylor era is better than Satisfaction, Ruby Tuesday, Paint It Black, The Last Time, 2000 Light Years From Home, Jumpin' Jack Flash, Street Fighting Man etc etc? There isn't anything better, it's just different, more rock orientated and with fancier guitar solos. Yes there are a lot of better songs than the ones you're mentioning . Wild Horses

The album-suite of Let It Bleed (1969), Sticky Fingers (1971) and Exile on Main St. (1972) are pretty much considered their best. Me myself also wanna push for the latter album Some Girls (1978), which I think is equally good, were the Stones adapted punk & disco to their sound; it's brilliant. But since you appreciated "Ladies & Gentlemen", which contains material of tw

Tss, after Sugar Blue, Mick Jagger is probably the best harp-player there is.

QuoteSleepy City I have an even harder time picturing Mick Taylor (or Ronnie Wood) playing a sitar on Paint It Black / a recorder on Ruby Tuesday / marimbas on Under My Thumb / mellotron on 2000 Light Years From Home / oboe on Dandelion... Wouldn't y'all agree? The guy was a musical genius, & the only person with the onstage charisma to rival Jagger. Didn't Ron Wood play

QuoteCome On He formed The Rolling Stones for a starter... Wasn't that pretty much the only thing he did? He didn't write any songs, just à few riffs, but wanted to be the star in the band so bad. He was in the band for 7 years (although pretty much absent of the last 2) and the band has been going on for almost 50(!). C'mon, can he still be that important? If he would have lived o

I haven't been on this board for a long time but I was surprised to see that so many fans here adore Brian Jones. Why? Seriously, what did he do that was so great? Of course he was the founding member, he taught Jagger to play the harmonica and if it wasn't for him the Stones would probably not exist. But I just don't think that's enough for all the rave around him. Sure, he

I would say that the apocalyptic solo of Sway tops it all, it really shows off Taylor as an incredible virtuoso. Dramatic beautiful solo! Gets me every time. Some other favorite Taylor-performances are the extended jam of Can't you hear me knocking, the solos of Shine a light and live-version of Dead Flowers.

I know solo artists may not count but "in terms of legacy", the Stones are only third to Beatles and Dylan.

QuoteMathijs Quotecc QuoteMathijs And, there's something else that never felt right: Charlie's drumming in the intro and first verse. To me, it lacks his famous swing. It's a bit butch, pounding just a tad too hard. For years I have doubt it actually is Charlie and Jimmy Miller instead. I still feel awkward about it.

One thing that can be said about Honky Tonk Women is that it's one of Charlie Watt's best performances. That intro where he just seems to fall in is brilliant in its own simplicity and the beat that follows is precise as a heartbeat.

I've never really liked the studio-version of Under My Thumb. It's a great song but I think it comes out so much better with the more riff-based sound the Stones developed in the 70's rather than the original marimba-thing, I like the version they played at Altamont, it really got a sad feeling due to the circumstances. And the opening numbers they did on every show during the

I've never seen this before. Scanned it myself out of the "1001 albums you must hear before you die"-book. I think it's from the American tour of '72. Anyone knows who took it and if there's more out of the same session?

(This is my first post here since I couldn't find any existing thread about tattoos inspired by the Rolling Stones, sorry if there already is one.) I really like to play with the thought of having a tattoo inspired by my favorite band but I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas. No album cover is really that suited as motives. The "Lips and Tongue"-logo would actually be
