Coolness is lame, and it isn't even really very cool. It tells me you're interested only in being dispassionate and repressing any emotion about happiness or contentment.

I don't mind the Stones, but I've noticed this streak in a lot of their fans, and have called them "Rock 'n Roll snobs" at times.

Writing songs about the full range of human emotions - the happy ones as well as the sad and mad ones - is a strength, not a weakness IMO.
You know this was a tongue-in-cheek thread right? I'm pretty sure he just wanted to goad Beatles fans.

Both bands have their goofy fans. Just about any band that big are gonna have a lot of tools for fans who latch onto them because they feel that it's impossible to say anything against them so they're free to throw poop at everything else from atop their high horse. That sentence was far too long wasn't it?

Ha! Bad luck, Rolling Stones! This seems to be the closest that Music Banter comes to an official Rolling Stones thread, and you have to share the billing with the Beatles! How humiliating is that, for a band of such stature and longevity?

Anyway, I'm here to post something that I just discovered: The Band The Stones Never Became. I don't know the back story, but here are the instrumental Stones, presumably led by Brian Jones, with Jagger relegated to the drums, if in the band at all:



Spoiler for Line up details:
Recorded at Olympic Studios in 1967.

Line up:
Brian Jones - mellotron
Keith Richards - acoustic guitar
Bill Wyman - bass guitar
Charlie Watts - drums
Nicky Hopkins - piano
Mick Jagger & Paul McCartney - percussion


And here's a longer rehearsal session for I don't know what song:



Spoiler for Line up details:
Recorded at Olympic Studios in 1967.

Line up:
Brian Jones - acoustic guitar & organ
Keith Richards - electric & acoustic guitar
Bill Wyman - bass guitar
Charlies Watts - drums
Nicky Hopkins - piano

The second song is "The Lantern" off of SMR. It's in the title "The Lantern" session.

The Stones had a few members come & go, studio musicians that played with them, and side projects. Before they became the official Rolling Stones with line-up that we all know they had two members that left to join other bands. One went one to play drums for the Kinks, the other, Dick Taylor, went on to The Pretty Things.

Ian Stewart was the sixth Stone. Their manager didn't think he fit in looks-wise, but stayed on as touring manager. He played piano for them for like twenty years, with the exception when Nicky Hopkins played the 88. According to Keith, Ian was very much the music backbone of the Stones. Jimmy Page and Brian Jones worked with Nico who later went on to join the VU. Jones played guitar and Jones produced on that project. Jones gave up Rock and Roll for sex and drugs. After he died, Mick Taylor joined the Stones. He was a guitar player with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. A few members of the Stones (Jagger, Wyman, & Watts) did an album with Nicky Hopkins and Ry Cooder called "Jamming with Edward." They had the great guitar player hunt that ended up with Ron Wood, who was in the Jeff Beck Group, & Faces.

I think one of the few if not only person to play for both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones was Billy Preston.


The Dirty Mac was also a band that never was. I would have loved it if they put an album.
(I don't know if this was posted before in this thread. I remember being able to search for videos in a thread but that function is now kaput.)
The Dirty Mac - Yer Blues


John Lenonn - vocals, guitar
Eric Clapton - guitar
Keith Richards - bass
Mitch Mitchell - drums

Thanks for all the background info, Neapolitan. I remember that you are a big fan of the early Stones, and I remember vaguely that "Jamming with Edward" album you mention too.

The line-up of The Dirty Mac is extraordinary; surely one of the greatest super-group line ups of all time! And here's another Band The Stones Never Became: Willie and the Poor Boys:-



How many familiar faces did you spot?

Spoiler for Line up of artists:
Paul Rodgers, Jimmy Page, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, Ronnie Wood and Mel Collins
