Yes, still have it on vinyl. Also on CD as it happens. Loved having those Wolfman Jack snippets too. A top movie, and still one of my favourites. I love the line from John Milner (played memorably by Paul Le Mat) who said when the Beach Boys came on his car radio 'Music has all gone to heck since Buddy Holly died' BH was a big favourite of The Stones always.

QuoteTheGreek Say what you will about the Mighty Led Zeppelin , but Mr. Page and Mr. Plant and Mr. Jones know respect and honor of the mate John Bonham . Honor and Integrity and Respect ! 100% agree. A class response from a very classy group of bandmates. Well said my friend, and well done, once again, to Messrs Plant, Page and Jones. Honour, integrity and respect indeed.

Yes it is. In fact long past the time. Sadly the band has been little more than a greatest hits-type human jukebox for a long long time. But will they go on? Yes, they probably will. Not because it is the dignified or respectful thing to do, but because the current version of The Stones lives in some kind of parallel universe where performing on autopilot is what they do. And ever decreasing att

I not expecting any significant changes to the set lists this time around. Same as ever. Steve Jordan being onboard will not make one iota of difference to WHAT is being performed although it may have an impact on HOW they are performed. In fact Steve being there is likely to keep act as a deterrent to trying anything different, given they will have to familiarise him with the usual warhorses, an

Quotetreaclefingers QuoteSighunt It was Hot Rocks that opened up my eyes and made me realize how many hits that the Stones had. And it was because of Hot Rocks that I started working backwards to collect all their earlier albums. ditto! Excellent points from you both. Hot Rocks is an excellent primer for the Stones 1960s output. Here in Britain it was superceded to an extent by the quite wond

Because I am old and pathetic I have become quite obsessive about monitoring the chart performance of Hot Rocks on the Billboard 200. And I'm delighted to see that is still there this week. Another mini-surge in sales for the past three weeks now. And all the while it is creeping closer and closer to a total of 364 weeks - meaning a chart lifespan of seven years. Albeit accumulated over the

Another step on the road to The Stones, or what is left of them, becoming a kind of tribute band to themselves, rather than a living, breathing, vital, creative musical force. How things have changed!. And how sad I feel watching a band I have loved all my life turning into a sort of role play. . Yes, getting another drummer in means a performance can take place, but it sure ain't The S

Quotedmay Re "Hot Rocks", a nice compliation of Stones tracks, which, like many, I bought, but I came to prefer "Rolled Gold" as a sampler/hits collections. Played RG many times back in the day, loud, and my hearing paid the price. Yes indeed, Rolled Gold is SUPERB. Definitely the pick of the 1960s Stones material. And the CD release adds an additional 12 tracks to the origi

QuoteHopeYouGuessMyName It's odd. I no longer own Hot Rocks. If I did, I would not play it.

But it is still true - It is the most amazing of music ever. Yes indeed. I quite understand and feel very similarly. Where I

Great to see that The Stones have an album on the Billboard 200 this week. Yes, good old Hot Rocks has re-entered yet again, this time at the unexpectedly high placing of No.33. So while those of us who have followed the band's career in great detail for many many years, and write authoritatively about obscure rarities, unusual b-sides, special Japanese pressings, and 'unofficial�

QuoteStonedRambler @Gerard The whole point I was trying to make is that you can only judge the sound within your hearing range. And that what what GasLightStreets comment about "science of sound" was about. Let's say for example your hearing range goes until 10k then you can surley say that it sounds good within the 20hz-10kHz range. But you can NOT know if it still sounds good
