They ought to put P.T. Barnum on the one dollar bill. P.T. Barnum is the patron saint of the United States. American life -- politics, the arts, business -- is full of P.T. Barnums. In fact, you could argue that to succeed in America in any field, you need at least a modicum of P.T. Barnum in your blood. Lou Reed is the P.T. Barnum of rock and roll. A complete phony from NY who soft-shoed his

Great song that captured the feeling of that time: "These days there's not privacy...just secrecy." It was written when Watergate was in the news and paranoia ruled supreme.

Quotebuffalo7478 The Stones have two guitarists who underplay now. Too much posing and playing to the crowd and dealing with cigarettes. You nailed it buffalo. I recently watched "Shine A Light," the 2008 concert film. It was awful. Way too much posing. I miss Mick Taylor.

But as I mentioned in my post, I've been listening to the song since 1972, and back in those days you couldn't look up the lyrics. But I'll be sure to take your advice for now on 71Tele. You betcha!

This thread is funny. What is Casino Boogie about? It's just another mystery on the Exile album, another gem to turn over in your mind and ponder. I must've listened to the song 500 times, and until today, I never read or cared to read the official lyrics. Here's what I heard: No girl, can’t speak, wound up, no heat Skydiver insider, skip rope stunt flyer One dead lover go

Billy Preston all the way, especially for his organ work on "Sticky Fingers" and "Exile." Preston brought a truckload of soul to the Stones recordings he played on. Yes, I know the old story about Keith Richards thinking that Preston overshadowed the band, but so what? He did great work and the band always needs overshadowing by great musicians to keep it in top form. I

I always liked this album and thought the criticism was unfair and probably due to "Goat's Head Soup" coming after "Exile on Main Street." Any album after "Exile" was bound to fail by comparison, as "Exile" is the greatest R&R album ever made in my very humble opinion. The album did fall short in the lyrics department. "Star Star" woul

DD, thanks for the thorough consideration of London accents. I find this stuff fascinating. I lived in London for a time (I'm in California) and was intrigued by all the different voices I heard there. It's a fascinating city. I had a great time living there. As for Jagger's singing, he is very good at aping Southern American blues singers, although at times he crosses the line.

I've always been curious about this, and I'm wondering if UK visitors to this forum can clarify it for me. About a decade ago when my daughter was 10 she asked me where in the United States the Rolling Stones come from. I answered that they don't come from the U.S. The Rolling Stones are English. "Then why do they sing with American accents?" she asked. It got me

Word to the wise: the general population of this forum does not appreciate honest criticism of their favorite rock band. Adulation, nostalgia, hero worship -- that's what this forum is about. I think it goes without saying that the Stones have been resting on their laurels for years now, but nobody around here wants to hear that.

"I take my hat off for Bob Dylan who is still raising eyebrows among his peers artistically...what an artist." That's funny. Didn't Dylan just release an album of Christmas songs?

You're @#$%& kidding me, right? Ringo Starr is just another rock and roll drummer. Watts is a true original -- a jazz drummer in a rock and roll band. The unique Stones sound comes from three main sources: Jagger's growly voice, Richards' smooth rhythm playing, and Watts jazz-style drumming. If you compare Watts' drumming to that of other drummers in rock and roll bands, yo

Willy DeVille describes Johnny Thunders' death from a heroine overdose in a New Orleans hotel: DeVille said about Thurders' death in the movie "Please Kill Me": "I don't know how the word got out that I lived next door, but all of a sudden the phone started ringing and ringing. Rolling Stone was calling, the Village Voice called, his family called, and then hi

I agree with you. I think it's time for a big change. Rock and roll is played out. I don't think it has room to grow anywhere. The form is too constricting. Here in the U.S. there is a burgeoning music movement called "Americana" (there are even some Americana radio stations) where the musicians reach deep into traditional American music styles that pre-date rock and roll -

I really like his rhythm guitar on "Bitch." On that one, he played rhythm as well as what's his name, the guy he switched roles with on "Bitch," the guy who played lead on that one.

And Jagger is wearing a "Destroy" T-shirt -- he must have stole that from a punk rocker! Remember, the Stones were under siege from punk rockers in 1978. The Stones wanted to prove they weren't just another old-fogey dinosaur band. The 1978 Stones were better than the 1975 or 76 Stones. I like to see Jagger standing in one place singing instead of running around like a cocaine-c

The guitar riffs are great, but the lyrics are daft. In my opinion, that's why the song never had legs. I think the lyrics were subpar in all of "Goats Head Soup" except for "Angie." It really hurt that album.

The Wikipedia article about Billy Preston says, "Preston's 1973 'Do You Love Me' was the basis for the Stones' 'Melody' on their 1976 Black and Blue album." Wikipedia is a bit of a joke, I know, but has anybody ever heard of this before? Is there any truth in this statement?

Great question! I think it was in '81 when his guitar got untethered from an amp. And I think his playing has really suffered because of it. His playing is sloppy. A related question: When did his guitar drop below his waist? In the early days he played with his guitar over his heart, but over the years it has dropped down, and how he plays it around his knees. That makes picking notes

[email protected]#$%& Sorry to say it, but there are a lot of other artists who deserve to be inducted before Willy DeVille... I doubt this petition will go anywhere. Shit, Jackson Browne is the R&R Hall of Fame. So I guess you do have a point -- you don't get put in the R&R Hall of Fame on merit.
