Default The Rolling Stones

Any time we ever get to talk about them we're usually just defending them against Beatlemania attacks, but for what is arguably the greatest rock band ever they deserve their own thread.

Aside from the countless famous jams they have, I sometimes stumble onto some amazing stuff that is never recognized as much as it should be.

What made me create this thread in particular? "Sweet Virginia" off of Exile on Main St., which I picked up after a brief visit to one of New England's world famous burger slop-houses. Some drunks harassed me into playing the song, and I don't know how you can't love this song. It just sounds like hanging out having a good time. Sloppy, Bluessy and groove-filled, its the stones at their best, and its easy to see the human side of these guys. No introspection, so virtuosity, just a jam that will not quit.

Im somewhat with you....I think they are definetly ONE of the greatest rock bands ever...and i think at the pace the mainstream music is going now...it will be a long time until we see something this great again

Well...I think keith richards is a fanominal rythem guitarist...he is a good guitarist all around but i really love what he writes behind the music...they're a really fun band to listen to and they come out with amazing ballads like angie ... and i have tried to find some old concert footage and hadnt really found anything mind blowing...i also didnt search very hard

Allegedly some of the stones tried another project sans keith. It lead one critic to say: "If you ever had any doubt about Keef's guitar being the signature sounds of the stones, just listen to this recording"

I laughed, I love Mick, but Keith Richards is the unquestionable ultimate rock star. Spin said that when he dies their going to line the space shuttle with his liver (or kidneys). The man is all legend.

i know there one of the greatest rock bands ever.... BUT! i don't like them and never have. I am in fact one of the biggest Stone haters in the world.. I don't understand why people like them so much.. there's nothing overly great about them.. well at least in my eyes..

there songs aren't that great
mick jagger is annoying
mick jaggers voice isn't really that great
mick jagger has a annoying show now(could have just been a doc tho..not sure but either way).. and him and his daughters were singing on it and non of them could sing at all.. there were just random mouse liek sounds and random 'ooohs' and 'yeas' coming out of jaggers mouth it was so stupid.
that other guy in the band.. the drunk one.. ew i don't get it.. he also isn't that great...
there songs aren't overly great... but i can understand why people would like there songs..
there old now.. and they shoudl realize that... there still milking the cow.. only the cow has been dead for years.. they've milked bessy dry... *crise* poor cow.
this band really buggers me..

anyways i know i shall get jumped all over for this.. but hell its all just MY opinion and we all know how well my thoughts are welcomed around here.
