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.

I never got the argument between mono and stereo until now. This song sounds better in mono.

I always feel bad for Brian Jones. He was kicked out of the band. Brian did the Sitar before George Harrison.

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...

BBC ^ | July 22nd, 2016 | Unattributed
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...

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...

'Bobby Keys, longtime saxophonist for The Rolling Stones, has died. Michael Webb, keyboardist for Bobby Keys and the Suffering Bastards, confirmed Keys' death with the Scene, saying the legendary musician had been battling cirrhosis and passed away at his home in Franklin early this morning. He was 70 years old. A Texas native who’d lived in Middle Tennessee since the early ’90s, in addition to his 40-plus-year tenure with The Rolling Stones, Keys appeared on legendary recordings by John Lennon, Joe Cocker, Barbra Streisand, B.B. King, Carly Simon, Lynyrd Skynyrd and others. More details to come.'

In case you didn’t have time to watch, yesterday’s Spring Sphere Roll was awesome! Big Guy improved his stats over 100% compared to last year’s hoops performance ( 2-for-9 - or 22.2% - vs. 2-for-22 or 9.1% last year)! Although there was “a moment” as the press pool reported, when the basketball “very lightly hit POTUS in the face when he was standing under the basket catching rebounds.” As anyone around here can tell you, hitting Big Guy upside the head is still the best way to get his attention.Incoming!Basketballs weren’t the only incoming projectiles at the festivities; somebody forgot to...

The Rolling Stones, who have toured every year since 2012 and whose principals are all in their 70s, have announced a North American tour for next year that launches April 20 in Florida and wrap in Chicago on June 21. The initial announcement includes 13 dates, however there are several days between each tour date so additional shows seem likely, even with the Stones’ average of 3-4 days between shows. The dates were first announced by Rolling Stone.

Ultimate Classic Rock ^ | 4/2015 | Frank MAstrapolo
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...

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...

In a statement Wednesday, the rock band said they have not given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and “have requested that they cease all use immediately.” A Trump campaign spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment or say whether they had a license to play their songs.

This should be the last time Donald Trump uses the Rolling Stones’ music at one of his events, a representative for the band said Wednesday. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s campaign has been using Rolling Stones music — he played a recording of the song “Start Me Up” at a speech late last month and again Tuesday night — and the band isn’t happy about it. The 54-year-old group has requested Trump stop using Stones music.

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...
