    I thought that all Rolling Stone's fans were dead and, if not, had become lovers of classical music!

    Maybe so, but I'm very partial to "Paint It Black", course then I'll listen to "Sweet Virginia" and scrape the chit right off my shoes. Later.

    They did many, many great songs and are still performing. Yes, Paint it Black was great, as was were so many others. Let the haters hate.

    Anyone who looks down on someone for being old is going to get an unexpected surprise someday when people look down on them.

    Paybacks are a ***** and that's one payback that there isn't anyway to avoid except by dying young and leaving a better looking corpse.

    Yep. All those who hate on old people must be planning to die young. I'd like to be around to say "F you, how do you like it now?"

    Exactly!

    They've lived like rock stars for longer than I've been alive and made some awesome music along the way. I'll be happy to be walking if I live that long.

    I saw them in Clemson SC during the Steel Wheels tour when I was 16 in '89 and of the hundred or so concerts I've been to, that was one of the best!!

    Back in 1965 the Stones played in L.A. and friends of mine got tickets but I couldn't go because I had to work that weekend. And my friends tried to go backstage and managed to follow the Limo that the band was in to a motel where they were staying and my one friend got some pictures of Brian Jones which eventually ended up in Rolling Stone magazine.

    Then, ten years later, in 1975, I finally got to see them at the L.A. forum and that was an incredible concert with Ron Wood on second guitar.

    The best song they did, which I think they closed the show with, was "Sympathy for the Devil" with Ollie Brown on congas and the performance of that song was just outstanding and the best part was, if you're familiar with the song, about halfway into it, the band starts singing backup in falsetto, "WOOO, WOOO!" and at that point the entire stadium including myself started singing "WOOO, WOOO! along with them!

    "Star Star" was another song they did and I think there is a video and a CD of that entire concert available but it may not have been the night I was there. They played two shows, one on Friday an another on Saturday.

    Where did the rolling stones get their name?

    I like classic rock, and I hope I am still living at their age.


























    Yep. all rock and roll can be traced back to the blues ... just sayin.

    Saw that show in Pittsburgh at three rivers stadium. First floor men's rooms had lines to pee at the sinks and waste cans. Women were in there lined up to use the stalls.

    Their Mick Taylor days were phenomenal.

    Yup, the Stones music was pretty loose, sometimes sloppy. That’s why Mick Taylor left.

    They’re excellent though. They use a lead guitar for melody throughout a song, while most use it for solos only.

    They’re definitely part of my youth and beyond.

    Tell me Mick wasn't tripping on something during that song.

    It's well known that a 2nd-rate band can make it to the top, and be immune to the effects of their own decadent lifestyle for a while, if they are willing to make a certain deal with a certain underworld entity, at a crossroads...
