Goddamn. Do you think they'll start making Americans like this again? I doubt it.

In California in the early 1970s, you used to be able to buy bootlegs in record stores. They were sold in the racks right along with the bona fide records. My first Stones bootleg purchase was "Bright Lights, Big City," some Jimmy Reed and other blues covers. My best purchase was "Bedspring Symphony," which I believe is now called "Brussels Affair." The gol

Assuming they allow record players and speakers in the cells? Exile on Main Street. An endlessly fascinating record. I hear something new every time I listen to it.

I sometimes amuse myself on this board by going way back and reading topics from years ago (this board is now 16 years old!). On a recent tour of the past I got to thinking about Stones songs I liked 16 years ago but don't like now, and Stones songs I disliked 16 years ago but like now. Tastes change, the popular taste and individuals' taste. What's changed for you? Used to d

QuoteHairball It's an embarrassing song to the Stones legacy. I love the guitars though, and the groove by Charlie and Bill really gets going strong midway. But it's Micks vocals that ruin it for me . They are silly and contrived, wanting to sound like the singer from KC and the Sunshine band. KC and the Sunshine Band? They sang "That's the Way I Like It", &q

Let's not forget it's a two-way street. The Stones covered a Johnny Winter song. In 1969 at their famous Hyde Park Concert the Stones covered "I'm Yours and I'm Hers" by Johnny Winter.

In his autobiography "Hell's Angel: The Life and Times of Sonny Barger and the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club," Barger claims that the trouble started because the Rolling Stones wanted to wait until sundown to go on stage. Waiting made the crowd restless. It's amazing to me that anybody would hire the Hells Angels to police a concert. The Hells Angels to a man are hideo

I agree with Keith Richards assessment of Metallica: “It sounds like a dull thud to me. For most bands, getting the syncopation is beyond them. It’s endless thudding away, with no bounce, no lift, no syncopation. Millions are in love with Metallica and Black Sabbath. I just thought they were great jokes.” I also agree with Jeffrey Lebowski's assessment: "Bunch of a$$holes."

Bedspring Symphony, a vinyl record of the famous Brussels 1973 concerts. It's now called "Brussels Affair." I bought it in a record store in 1979. The Brussels concerts have been remixed. I prefer the rawer "Bedspring Symphony," which brought KR's guitar forward in the mix. How that man could play!

"Stray Cat Blues" heard on a friend's cheapo stereo system circa 1969. The introduction with very briefly a woman's voice, the deep suggestive singing, and of course the guitar riff. It felt like the music was coming from someplace deep in the earth.

Quotenick1970 Dancing with Mr d.. is just not very good.. Quite true. But the fault lies with the man who wrote the lyrics. The tune itself is classic Keith Richards -- understated but very much in the groove. His writing partner provided the daft lyrics that kill the song.

Mink DeVille and later when he went on his own, the band's lead singer Willy DeVille (moment of silence for Willy, dead these ten years). The following is from the liner notes to the 2001 compilation album "Cadillac Walk: The Mink DeVille Collection." It was written by Ben Edmonds, the record company executive who signed Mink DeVille to Columbia. It relates how Mick Jagger dropp

A matter of taste, of course, but I prefer the 1973 tour because Billy Preston played keyboards, not Nicky Hopkins. Hopkins could tickle the keys but Preston could really work them. Also Preston played organ as well as piano. Listen to the weight he brings to "Midnight Rambler" with his organ playing.

The album came out in 1966. It pioneered a number of studio recording techniques that we now take for granted -- double-tracking, backing tracks, reverborators. When it came out in 1966 nobody had heard anything like it. To use the LA parlance of the times, it was "boss." It is revered in part because it was the firsts of its kind.

Slightly off topic, but I just parted with some R&R memorabilia regarding The Clash for which I got a lot of money. The material was 40 years old. I figured your average Clash fan is 60 or over and if he or she has some money, they might pay to put Clash memorabilia in their Man Cave. Another 10 years and this theoretical Clash fan of mine will be dead or counting his pennies for retireme

QuoteElmo Lewis Faded: Elvis - considered a joke by many Elvis isn't considered a joke by anybody who knows anything about rock. True, the later Elvis was a pathetic creature, but the same (one could argue) can be said about the band to which this website is devoted. As for Queen, the movie has created a buzz around the band, but the campiness quotient there is too high. Queen is

A word from someone who lives in San Francisco: Levis Stadium is hard to get in and out of. Santa Clara is a little town with only two freeway exits. Set aside plenty of time to get to the stadium and to leave it.
