Backstage with The Rolling Stones - 1981

Out On The YouTube ^
December 18, 1981, The Rolling Stones are playing a concert at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia. It's a crazy scene. Women at the urinals. Goats coming out of the shower. (Yes, actual goats). Children mingling among the craziness. Mick Jagger swigging Gatorade out of a glass bottle and doing aerobic exercises before going onstage. Keith Richards jamming with George Thorogood, who opened the show (he rocked). Just a slice of the rock and roll lifestyle from 40 years ago.

The last song on the "Sticky Fingers" album from 1971. Many think it was just a filler song, but it is one of my favorite Stones songs. Keith Richards plays a steel guitar on this one.

Eric Clapton to appear on new Rolling Stones album

Guitarist Eric Clapton will appear on the Rolling Stones' blues-inspired new album, Keith Richards has confirmed. The musician "dropped by for a couple of numbers", Richards told BBC 6 Music, adding the recording sessions had been "like old times down in Richmond". Both the Stones and Clapton's former band, The Yardbirds, used to perform at the Crawdaddy Club in Richmond, Surrey. Richards said the Stones were hoping to play some European dates next year and would "love to" perform in the UK. "I think it's on the menu somewhere," the 72-year-old said. The new album was confirmed by the band...

Five controversial songs by The Rolling Stones that need to be forgotten

After forming in 1962, The Rolling Stones quickly defined the decade alongside other British bands like The Beatles and The Kinks. The 1960s was a significant time in the development of counterculture, rock music and youth movements, and The Rolling Stones, with their gritty style, were widely influential in this cultural shift. The band might have started out as a blues cover band, but it didn’t take long for the Stones to solidify themselves as talented songwriters in their own right. This was mainly down to the pairing between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, becoming known as one of music’s...

Rolling Stones at the T.A.M.I. show in October 1964

It was late October 1964 and the British Invasion was on. The Beatles had exploded upon the scene earlier that year in February and the Rolling Stones were just one of another number of rock bands that suddenly started getting U.S. airplay and hits. The performance linked here was at the T.A.M.I. show (Teen Age Music International) in Santa Monica, CA. I'm posting this because the the video and sound quality of this performance is extraordinary for the times. For context, The Rolling Stones had yet to have their first big U.S. hit ("Satisfaction" would go to number one the...

A free concert is very nice, but it's a reminder that Cuba remains in communist squalor It was awfully nice of the Rolling Stones to go to Havana this past weekend and play a concert for free. I’m sure the longtime victims of communism appreciated the gift - especially since exposure to any media that would have made them aware the Rolling Stones exist put them in jeopardy of prison under the Castro regime that Barack Obama thinks we can learn from about civil rights. The Stones may be almost as old as the Castros, but they rocked, as they...

The greatness of the Rolling Stones—that stunning library of guitar licks and lyrics, the decades of tabloid feuds and imbroglios, the packed stadiums—obscures a more interesting fact: For the past 50-plus years, this band, formed in a London pub in 1962, has been among the most dynamic, profitable and durable corporations in the world. In the course of my lifelong study of the world’s greatest rock band, I’ve come away with five lessons—strategies that any CEO or entrepreneur should keep in mind while playing the long game. Choose the right name. The band was originally called Little Boy Blue and...

Tax season is unpleasant for everyone (except for the IRS, that is). But imagine the plight of many popular British bands in the ’60s. In the U.K., the new millionaires had to pay a whopping 95 percent of their income in taxes. The Beatles’ George Harrison wrote “Taxman” to protest the unfair split: “There’s one for you, 19 for me.” “‘Taxman’ was when I first realized that even though we had started earning money, we were actually giving most of it away in taxes,” Harrison said in 1980’s I Me Mine. “It was and is still typical.” Many rock stars...

The Daily Mail has reported that The Rolling Stones are threatening President Donald Trump with legal action over the use of the band's songs at his rallies despite their objections. The classic Rolling Stones hit 'You Can´t Always Get What You Want' from 1969 can be heard many times at Trump's events throughout the country. According to the Daily Mail report, the band's legal team is working with the BMI music rights organization to stop the use of their songs as part of President Trump's campaign. In an official announcement the band wrote: 'The BMI have notified the Trump campaign...

Rolling Stones To Release Blues Album in December

Rolling Stones fans have known that the band has been working on a blues album for a while, and now it looks like it will be released before the end of the year. Frontman Mick Jagger recently tweeted “Watch this space #playingtheblues” with a photo of a case filled with harmonicas. Meanwhile, both Jagger and the Rolling Stones’ official twitter accounts have changed their profile photo to a Stones lips and tongue logo that is mostly blue. While both of those things just feed into rumors, longtime Stones producer Don Was told a French media outlet that “The album consists...

It shouldn't be a surprise, really, but still it's a bit startling to hear just how well the Rolling Stones can play the blues. Strip away the glitz, the oversized stages and the pyrotechnics, and you're left with two terrific guitarists, a frontman who can play an exuberant harp — and a drummer named Charlie Watts. No wonder Blue & Lonesome sounds so solid. Their first studio album in more than a decade has the simplest of concepts: Put the guys in a studio for three days, give them a songbook heavy on Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon and Howlin' Wolf,...

Why the pope tried to halt the Rolling Stones concert in Cuba

Pope Francis is helping to open Cuba to the outside world, but that could change the influence of the Catholic Church in the long-isolated island nation. At Cuba's first major rock-n-roll concert Friday night, the Rolling Stones played to an estimated 500,000 Cubans, many of whom were lifelong fans. Some of these Cubans once risked re-education on a work brigade for secretly listening to pirated vinyls when the Communist government banned such music. "To me, this is a consecration," Juan Carlos Leon, age 57, told Reuters. "I've waited my whole life for this. The Stones are the greatest." One major...

Vulture ^ | May 5th, 2017 | By David Marchese
Time doesn’t apply to the Rolling Stones quite like it does to other rock bands. Their longevity is staggering — this band has been around for 55 years. Fifty-five years! Founding members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Charlie Watts have been hitched to each other for far longer than the vast majority of marriages last — longer than a lot of lives last, too. That staying power is an incredible achievement, and it also has a distorting effect. If you’re a fan of the Stones, it’s hard not to always compare them with their glorious 1968 to 1972 peak, when...
