Probably I'm coming here late with this song, but I think Bettye Lavette's version of "Salt of the Earth" is amazing. I never though of the title as a gospel song until I heard her version. Check it out:

Quotejeff14 Without the likes of Johnny Rotten would we have ever gotten Some Girls? Excellent point. People don't realize it now, but the Rolling Stones were running a little bit scared in 1978 when they made "Some Girls." Songs like "Lies" and "Respectable" on that album were the Stones taking a stab at punk. The punks were nipping at their heels, and the St

The great Billy Preston died six years ago on June 6. His enormous contribution to the Rolling Stones often goes unheralded, and I'm posting this to remind Stones fans that a couple of the Stones best albums wouldn't be quite as good without Billy Preston. His soulfulness and technical expertise around R&B and gospel music enrinched the Stones' sound greatly. After Mick Tayl

I was there! It used to be my claim to fame, that I was at the last Sex Pistols concert. But then they re-united and toured. Needed the money, I guess. It wasn't so much a concert as a cultural happening. My favorite moment: When Johnny Rotten surveyed the stage for loot people had thrown at him, picked up a few things, and asked the audience, "Why donchya throw your cameras?"

I bought that album when it came out without having heard a song from it. I liked the way it looked. I played it so often as a freshman in college my nickname became "Ramone." It was by far the Ramones' greatest album. It was perhaps the only instance of a group's debut album also being its greatest hits album. And you have no idea how refreshing it sounded in 1976 when Pet

According to this story about the recently released "Boogie 4 Stu: A Tribute to Ian Stewart," Bill Wyman played on the same track as the Rolling Stones for the first time since 1992 (although his playing was overdubbed). The story is here: "How Ben Waters got the Stones back together with Bill Wyman" In his review of the album, Sterling Whitaker write: Perhaps th

As a resident of San Francisco for 40 years, all I can say is, whatever problems the city has, and whatever decade it is allegedly "stuck in," it is an absolutely beautiful city. Really it's more of an island -- 3/4s of one anyway, as it's surrounded on three sides by water. Every time you climb a hill -- and there are many -- you get a different view, like entering a differen

What "Bigger Bang" lacked was a good producer like Jimmy Miller to give the album another musical dimension. It could've used some saxes and backup vocals, for example. Or imagine someone like Ry Cooder adding a little color to the songs? I liked the looseness of the album -- in that regard it is a bit like "Main Street." But all the good Stones albums were helped alon

I know, I know. Allen Klein was not good to his leading client, the Rolling Stones. Basically he used his position as a license to steal. Nevertheless, this story that shows there was some good in Klein. When the producers of "The Big Lebowski" (the movie) wanted to secure the rights to play Townes Van Zandt's cover of "Dead Flowers" over the closing credits, they had

This is from the 1975 tour. I think it's at the L.A. Forum. Dig Billy Preston's organ on this song. The Rolling Stones owe a lot to Billy Preston. When they were at their best, Billy was often in the background playing organ or piano. As for filth? The song has the word "@#$%&," but come on... This song is actually a very witty ditty about groupies. I especially like, &q

"Jack White's output is prodigious." -- RipThis? Oh yeah? Let's see, he's produced records for the Smoke Faeries, The Muldoons, and Dex Romweber Duo. Not much of a track record. Being a heavy metal heartthrob doesn't recommend you as a Rolling Stones producer.

Jack White? Why? How about John Philip Shenale? He is an eccelectic producer with an amazing track record and a background in classical music as well R&R. Time for the Stones to roll the dice instead of the same old shit. Remember in 1978 when punk rock challenged the Stones to break the mold and they came up with "Some Girls"? Something like that needs to happen again, and it

Americans over 35 will remember the TV show "Gilligan's Island." In 1974, a group called Little Roger and the Goosebumps took the words of TV show and put it to the tune of "Stairway to Heaven." Led Zepplin sued immediately and had the record suppressed. Kind of ironic, in light of what rip-off artists Led Zepplin was.

No question about it, punk rock energized the Stones of the "Some Girls" era -- maybe even scared them into trying harder. Songs like "When the Whip Comes Down" were inspired by punk rock. And "Hang Fire" even had Mick Jagger singing in a cockney accent as a nod to English punk rockers. I was right in the thick of it in 1977 and 1978. I even lived in London in
