I'm surprised he hasn't sold "Start Me Up" for use in a Viagra ad.

It's not that simple. And it's not only the cosmetic aspect. It depends a lot more on genetics than on money. Keith has arthritis, for example. No, it's not the drug use catching up with him, he always had this condition. Money helps, but genetics are the main reason Mick is like that.

"Moonlight Mile"
"Winter"
"Sway"
"Shine A light"



My favorite Rolling Stones songs. Keef didn't play on any of'em. The band was better with Mick Taylor. Jagger is underrated. Dude is a genius. Doesn't get credit for it. Right up there with Lennon as a songwriter.

Shine a Light is bloody fantastic. It's the best song on Exile, and that is really saying something.

Ventilator Blues would be my choice.

"Rocks Off" here. What a kick ass opening track.

For you younger listeners out there, were you aware that former Indie Rock queen Liz Phair's first album Exile In Guyville was structured (supposedly) as a song-by-song response to Exile On Main Street?

Note the similarities in how both albums start:

Rolling Stones - Rocks Off (1972) - YouTube

Liz Phair-"6'1" from "Exile in Guyville" - YouTube

Who or what is a "Liz Phair"? Was she in Casablanca or something?

Back when I couldn't tell many of the songs apart, I would have said Exile on Main Street was inferior to Exile in Guyville. Now I realize that's ridiculous, but EIG is an astounding record with a terrific emotional arc and a clutch of all-time classics. Along with Lisa Germano's Geek The Girl, it's by far and away the best thing to come out of that whole pissed off 90s alt-rock chick thing.

It really is a landmark record. A shame that many people only know Phair for her awful sellout material/commercial appearances only.

And personally I think Whip-Smart is just as good, if not better. I think the music is a little more varied and interesting.

I've never sat down and listened to both Exiles in alternating fashion, but it is worth noting that Phair's poppy first single "Never Said" is in the same spot as Tumblin' Dice.
