Had a hard time getting started this morning. So I set my iPod to play some Stones. I love the blues, rock n roll, English-bent music of Mick and Keith and Charlie + . My favorite albums come from the late 60s — when Mick Taylor joined the band (Charlie and Bill were on drums and bass). This was after Brian Jones and before Ronnie Wood joined the band.
I find EXILE ON MAIN STREET, LET IT BLEED and STICKY FINGERS some of the best music ever. I guess I could extend the late 60s to the early 70s and tap into SOME GIRLS and EMOTIONAL RESCUE. I love it all. I do listen to the later music but find myself coming back to these albums over and over.
The Rolling Stones bill themselves as “The World’s Greatest Rock n Roll Band.” It’s hard to argue with that claim.
They have been together for 50 years.
Some of my favorite songs (in no particular order)
LET IT BLEED
YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT
BEAST OF BURDEN
SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL
But I have many, many others I love to listen to.
