I like everything the Stones have done, but my favorite era is with Brian Jones in the lineup. The guy could be a major league A-hole, however with his eclectic tastes, he brought a different dimension to their music. For instance, without the sitar in "Paint It Black", the song completely loses its menacing & foreboding tone. I'm sure you know about the recorder on "Ruby Tuesday", Mellotron on "2000 Light Years from Home" & "Citadel", etc.
Even though he & Keith had a big falling out, Keith paid Brian the compliment of being a terrific interpreter(I believe it was in a '72 interview). In other words, taking the songs Jagger/Richards wrote & expanding on them. Mick Taylor & Ron Wood are far superior guitar players, but Jones appeared to have more direct influence on the music than they did. Well, until paranoia/alcohol/drugs/Pallenberg finally took their toll & he was tossed out.
Cripes! I didn't mean to write a novel there. LOL Eh, just my two cents worth.

Thanks my friend. I mean look at their contemporaries from the 60s and into the 70s, how many are still rocking as hard as them Stones? They'll drop dead on that stage, and they've got every right to.

I really like a lot of their stuff from The Rolling Stones No. 2 through Tattoo You. Their first album didn't do much for me and the stuff after Tattoo You sounds wierd.

I have to hand it to The Stones, at first blush a lot of their stuff seems overly simple. But when you look a little deeper, it's pretty darn creative.

How do you all like the Devo remake of Satisfaction? Good, funny, lame, blasphemous?

Crap. Haha maybe that was a bit harsh.

I don't know I liked their last record a lot, but yeah Tattoo You really was their last hurrah musically. Bridges To Babylon was painful.

^Yea, it is a great album. One of the Stones' best. I particularly like Salt of the Earth, I don't think it gets enough credit.

Did any of you guys get the Biggest Bang DVD set? What did you think of it? I thought the Rio and Argentina footage was awesome. The rest is good too, but not as good as four flicks imo.

... I think this thread deserves a bump, so I'll say that I've listened to 2 RS CD's (Beggar's Banquet and Exile). They are both great... I'm going through my songs right now, when I come to them (I'm on F...) I have Let It Bleed there too.

Hope it's good... I know it will be.

^^Gimme Shelter. The show was a free show at the Altamont Speedway in 1969.

Gimme Shelter's great. I saw the Woodstock documentary before that and after watching Gimme Shelter it completely changed my opinions about the 60s.

Anyone else stoked for Martin Scrorsese's Shine a light movie? Keef in imax will be one frightening sight! http://www.shinealightmovie.com/

^^I'm still kicking myself for missing the filming of that. $50 to see the Rolling Stones at the Beacon Theater and I found out too late.

The Stones are one of my favorite bands. Favorite song is a tough one. Maybe Rocks Off. It kicks Exile on Main St. off with a bang.

I've never really been a big fan of the stones, but there alright you know,

I saw a thing where they voted Mick Jagger as the best frontman of all time, i dont know about any of you but i highly disagree, i think someone like Freddie Mercury or Roger Daltery should be up there no question.

Well there's no doubt that there were tons of better singers than him, but no one had the amount of energy and stage presence that he had. He also gets a lot of credit because he was the first real rock n' roll frontman, he was the blueprint.

Yeh for me he's much better than Daltrey, maybe not Mercury but definitely up there with him

^Yeah hes much better than Daltrey, more entertaining to watch, not sure about Freddie though.

One of my favourite stones songs is definitely Wild Horses, i just think its mint

Also what key and what scale does the sax solo use for brown sugar? Am not very good at working stuff like that out so any help is well appreciated.

Uhh I can't think off the top of my head. Keep in mind tenor saxes (the type used on the record) are naturally tuned to Bb. I forget how to figure out the matching key from just knowing the guitar key on tenors though. Sorry.
