3) But you are right about what the Stones have become, at least since "Some Girls." It was when you got bored with the Stones and switched to Kim Richey after three songs that she lost her running mojo. "Please Don't Sue Us, Pretty Record Companies". Mick and Keith knew nothing about THE blueman himself until Brian taught them. And as far as the "Brian Jones" era Stones go... not much better. Holy hypocritical Elvis-lover, Batman!I always figured "It's Only Rock and Roll" was about the confusing and odd relationship between a rock star and a groupie, the kind of gal who really loved Mick... but also jumped the bones of other lead singers with equal passion (Read: Pamela Des Barres). The good news? (A distinction that puts them ahead of the Beach Boys, Simon and Garfunkel, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Who, the Turtles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and a dozen others with just as many hits.) They are great running music. Entire dissertations have expounded on the overtly sexist, violent, and borderline psychopathic lyrics of songs like “Paint it Black,” “Mother’s Little Helper,” “Brown Sugar,” and “Sticky Fingers.” Rather than offer an inclusive revolution, the Stones set back the cause, marginalizing, objectifying, and animalizing women in more creatively sick ways than pretty much anyone else. You bring your own context and personal meaning to the songs that are good enough and substantial enough to merit that weight. There’s something unnatural about 70-somethings consuming unending cascades of pure, uncut cocaine. The drug stuff is sort of scary. You must be the rolling stones friend because i know them guys and they would never let anybody talk shit like this about there band buddy !!! So agree with you! I Hate The Rolling Stones!! True. Yeah, they dabbled in concept albums, the disastrous "Satanic Majesty's", but immediately rebounded with "Beggar's Banquet." OK, sure, the Stones were seminal, but the Beatles had an album out for two years before they even entered the arena. Seeing Stones in ATL next week. I want real reasons. It might make me unpopular, but I think… the Rolling Stones are completely, utterly overrated. Bob,I always feel a bit guilty when it comes to The Stones. They were horribly, horribly sexist. I still love the Stones but I agree that success and world record-selling tours changed who they are. I’m not saying they don’t have a few good songs, but second best band of all time behind the Beatles? (Meanwhile, getting a personality read from Bob Dylan is apparently like searching for water in the desert. We will only keep songs active for a limited amount of time. More than proving that the band’s members were macho, self-obsessed stereotypes (a virtue in some people’s minds, I suppose), it offered a clear case for the idea that they weren’t so much subversives as gigantic assholes. And what a coincidence he dies a month later. Because there ain't no Stones without Brian Jones!!!! They're an inch deep, which is not deep enough to keep my attention, even when I'm drunk. And if they cared about anyone they would have paid their taxes instead of running away when they got rich. He strummed chords, and it was boring as hell. I got tired of Jimmy Page's playing a very lonely lonely long time ago. All it did was kill the spirit of the ’60s. The Stones seemed like they were more of an event, a brand with a logo, and those two guys more like larger than life figures than members of a … They were never a rock n roll band. But, yeah, they don't do it for it for me. Share your thoughts with us. )You don't like them because they experimented with their sound? Stop picking on The Rolling Stone JERK !!!! "it's only rock and roll, but I like it..."This may be the first time I've seen the Stones dissed like this - usually it's the Beatles who get slammed. who called Ronnie Wood a "lightweight?" An unreleased documentary held back after objections by the band, Cocksucker Blues offered a pure, uncensored record of the post-Altamont era. If he can't get back to them, he might as well write about them. It’s because stuff like that looks silly! Please drop us a note at, a.k.a. I suppose, in the simplest terms, the, Rolling Stones, especially Mick and Keith, became more celebrities than legitimate musicians to me by the mid-70's. Mick and Keith got their shreds of talent from Brian's influence. So for those who hate/dislike them, why don't you like them? It’s not always better to burn out than fade away, but these guys are getting straight-up geriatric. Ran off with Anita and left him in morracco to die then booted him out of his own band. Bands like the Byrds, the Hollies, and Them debuted around the same time with dissonant hits that were every bit as inspired. They went into "exile" because they needed to learn to play. Maybe they’re back on the wagon, maybe they aren’t, but there’s a reason everyone believed it when Keith Richards said he’d snorted some of his father’s ashes: because it was believable. 9. 1. When that plodding, too-slow "Start Me Up" came on at the Mocs game the other day, I though, yeah, that's about where that belongs. And they sucked without him. I really like the Rolling Stones, I do have difficulty listening to a whole album though it can be hit and miss but saying that their albums and songs are often growers, I hated Exile on Main Street the first time I heard it, now it gets better every time I hear it (Tumbling Dice and Shine a Light being my favourites) Don't let me ever see those two. Your memory was probably from June of 1975. @Bob - While not overly impassioned, I'll offer a defense.First, it's just weird to me that you obsess over the metaphorical speck in the Stones' eye but not at the plank in the eyes of other musicians still in your good graces. The songs are fun to hear live and occasionally carry authentic emotion from the band. Altamont. The Stones didn't tour America in 74. No big deal, though. Billy, to quote (and therefore uplift) my pal Springsteen: "Nobody knows where love goes, but when it goes, it's gone.". You could see that clearly in the Muddy Waters set. Jed, it doesn't mean I won't read Keith's autobiography, which looks incredible. The least they could have done was address the situation and call for calm before there was a murder in the audience. Love when the Stones entourage comes in, sits down, and you can see Keith open a bottle with a switchblade. That mix I made for your wife to inspire her on her marathon did them in for me (and likely for her). ", good blog, fair points made, they are a money making machine, original for a spell, when Jones was around, then lapsed into predictable, Keith spins a good yarn at least, MJ is all primping and posing, and a gay boy at heart, the others well they just sort of stand around don't they, Watts reminds me of stiff upper lip headmaster, boring old man from the moment he popped out of his mother's vagina, they stole all their music from black american rock blues artists, by rights, they should donate half their wealth to the poor black rock veterans they stole from,no amount of 'homage' to chuck berry and muddy waters, makes up for the fact that they are fake,Keith Richards has a conscience and knows its true, he's the most likeable of the crew, the others are insufferable narcissistic 'unts'. 6. I don’t either… I listen to their music and look at their videos and they don’t do anything for me. This comment has been removed by the author. All these people dropping dead around these jerks and not even an inquest. So please. I dont hate the Stones, personally. If you have comments, we'd appreciate hearing from you. I wouldn't listen to them for free! just sayin'. And, if you drink a little, Start Me Up is a pretty good song to dance along with. But for those who say "I Wanna Rock", follow this link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25pS3bx4S8A. After looking at some questions regarding the Rolling Stones, I realized that there's a lotta people who hate the Rolling Stones. By the time the band hit the stage at Altamont, other acts, including the Grateful Dead, had pulled out. Hope to see you Sleeping Behind the Dumpster really soon ??? They rode in on the ass-end of the British Invasion. After the jump, ten unassailable reasons why the Rolling Stones are actually pretty awful. First Nirvana, now the Stones. They are the original band, they still play the songs well and you can bring your own authenticity to the concert. Huge difference. Working class heroes? The latter was enough to drive Thom Yorke batshit crazy after their first platinum album.I don't mean the Stones are heroes or good people, but somewhere in them is the capacity to feel something at some point. They stole Brian's band and I bet anything he talked to an attorney who informed him that he would be entitled to all their earnings if they continued without him. Nope. However, from 1964-1971, I think their output rivals anyone's, except perhaps the Beatles. Mr. Dwyer, yes I it was 1975. Apparently "troubadours" are granted such license.)There. The overall vibe might have been more slick ("Exiles" excepted), but they gave lip service to their roots. Nothing in the world is worse than a piss-poor cover of “Gimme Shelter.” Well nothing except the sixty bazillion real bands that continue to ape the Stones’ horribly dated aesthetic. But at one point, genuine or not, they brought The Rock, and that's what I want. More like slumming, middle-class poseurs. Whether or not they actually hired the Hell’s Angels (or just traded beer for half-assed semi-security), the Stones certainly could have done more to stop the destruction. I vow a no-poop zone for at least my next few posts. Those songs have been boring me since childhood. Robert Plant now there is the very definiton of a poser and Jimmy Page pretending to be Satanic yes sir talk about bullshit! Just because they made bad records after that shouldn't take the shine off great songs they did produce. Yep I hate those poser sons of bitches too. 4. Your a Bully they Should do what they did to me and give me everything you own !!! 2) The Stones never pretended to be anything other than what they were - a rock and roll band. But I Believe The Rolling Stone`s are The Greatest Rock&Rolling band in The Whole World there will never be a Better Rock&Roll Band EVER They have a Great Catolog.Sorry you feel like that maybe you should be homeless and ripped-off and broke too !!! And what did they do? Mick is expendible, i'll grant you that. Billy won't let you get away with that...just kidding.Bob, I have to agree with you about the Stones since Exile on Main Street. She had even asked you for an all-Stones cd. There's not much, if any, substance there and they won't be considered classics. I'd have expected a passionate defense from you, though. really Bob? Hope I can Throw Rocks and Beer Bottles At you Too ! Mixin' Up A Witch's Brew of Halloween Tunes, Breaking Down Bob (Birmingham, 10/13/2010), AMERICAN SONGS: "Return of the Grievous Angel". Mick and his minions! I agree with you that once they lost their personas--which I think were true, at least if you read Keith's new book--of hard-rocking blues/R&B fans, then they lost their authenticity and haven't been believable since then.
