"Winter" is the saddest in my opinion. It sure been a cold, cold winter...

In my lifetime I have watched Patti Smith go from being an object of satire to an underground cultural icon. I think the object of satire best befits her. Watch this segment from "Saturday Night Live" circa 1978 to see why she was considered a joke once upon a time. This segment satarizes her love of the Rolling Stones: video:

To me this song is another on "Goat's Head Soup" that got ruined by bad lyrics. "Star Star" and "Silver Train" could've been hit songs if the Stones put more than ten minutes into writing the lyrics. I do like the line that rhymes Jimmy Page with Quite the rage in Star Star.

"A Bigger Bang" was released on September 6, 2005. Seem about a hundred years ago... Will we have to wait another ten years for the next Rolling Stones album?

I remember returning to my local record store two or three times to see whether the album had arrived yet. I snatched it up right away. I didn't care for this record, however. It shows what's wrong with arena rock -- how performers have to speed up their songs and make their songs heavy for the large venues. Way too heavy-handed in my humble opinion.

"Mr. Richards" (as they call him in the NY Times) has been saying this repeatedly since the 1970s: “My favorite dream is to get the Rolling Stones off of a tour and straight into the studio. It’ll probably never happen, but I can hear the band that tight, when it’s really honed and toned and all the screws are in the right place. A lot of the earlier records we made were in between t

The British press! Everytime I think our press in America is the shytes, I take some consolation from knowing it's nevertheless far superior to the British press.

Quotecarlorossi QuoteTate Really excellent drumming by KJ on that track. I've always thought the drums on that song are perfect. I have known it was KJ for a long time, but it is always nice to reflect on this great recording. I always wondered how it would have sounded if Charlie had played it in the studio. That push and pull and coming together of everyone in the last half of this re

Looks like I won the bet, though not decisively. I wish somebody would ask KR or MT about this. I'd like to know for sure.

I made a bar bet about the song "Bitch." I said Keith Richards played lead on that song and Mick Taylor played rhythm. Was I right? The other guy said Keith Richards played rhythm and Mick Taylor played lead. Who was right? I was right, right?

I'm a Californian, born and raised, and I agree with the Big Lebowski: I HATE THIS SONG! Putting aside the music, the lyrics are daft. Petty philosophizing. In the middle 1970s their music was everywhere along with Jackson Browne's and the other country rockers, and it was horrible, a living torture. I must admit I like the Gypsy Kings version of the song in Spanish. I think

Ramones -- in a little club in Long Beach, CA 1976; loved 'em Dead Kennedys -- San Francisco's Mabuhay Gardens 1977 (they smashed their guitars on stage and the audience shouted, "Go back to the suburbs, rich kids!" as only rich kids could afford to ruin a guitar); they were awful then and always The Police -- in a little club in Riverside, CA 1977; indifferent, I thought th

"Silver Train," believe it or not. I heard it in 1973 while riding the schoolbus as a 15 year old. The driver would let us listen to Top 40 radio. I dug the song -- the Chuck Berry riffs, the harominica, the Mick Taylor solo. I went out and bought Goat's Head Soup. Within four months, I owned every Stones album made to that time.

"These days there's no privacy...just secrecy." These words from "Fingerprint File" are more cogent today than ever. I like "If You Really Want to Be My Friend" for its Philly soul sound, and "Luxury" is my theme song when I'm working late. Many great moments on that 1974 album.

QuoteDaveG I think the "Lucifer" or the devil in this song is merely a metaphor. I think it addresses the potential for evil that exists in all humans, and that if we think we're above it, we're fooling ourselves. In other words, let's respect it, let's have a healthy fear of and recognition of the dark underbelly of human nature. Well said. I agree. It think it�

"I shouted out who killed the Kennedys when after all it was you and me" This line, of course, comes from "Sympathy for the Devil." What does it mean? That something in human nature abhors an idealist so the Kennedy brothers, John and Robert, were doomed to die early? That's my interpretation of the most mysterious of Rolling Stones lyrics in the most philosophical

Quotetriceratops This is Brian's record as much as Mick and Keith's. This is one of Brian's highpoints. Are you sure? I read that Brian Jones hated the record and was glad when the Stones got back to their roots in the next record, "Beggars Banquet."

Quotestanlove Your another way to look at its is laughable to me. basically saying he was doing us a favor by being a narcissist. Yeah I want to hear more about Yoko and your relationship with her. Please tell us more about your stay at home father duties. Spell binding stuff. But again here Lennon gets credit for rambling on about himself. Your just the type of person I was talking about.
