Um... wrong instrument. So that was pretty foolish of me, considering I love the Stones! Wyman, is what I meant! Followed by Daryl Jones on the road. Oops

That said: Ron Wood play bass occasionally and on It's Only Rock n Roll when performed live in the '75 US Tour. So there.

Soooo tough to choose. But I would say The Stones by a hair.

The one area the Who has over the Stones IMO is that the Stones have a lot more songs that I do NOT like compared to the Who. I like/love 95% of the Who's catalogue, while the Stones, I like/love about 80% of their songs. The Stones have had some real clunkers in my opinion.

Stones, easily. The Who were brilliant but started to really suck 8/odd years into it.

SUSTAINED greatness. Its the reason we al brag about our beloved U2, but the Stones were the first to produce great music for 15 years straight.

This is kinda like a lot of baseball arguments. Basically, it comes down to what you value more: peak value or career value.

The Who, at their best, were better than the Stones. I think most would agree with this. But there's also no doubting that the Stones produced a much larger catalog of good music.

I'm more of a peak value type, myself, so I'd have to say I prefer The Who. I'd also take Koufax over Warren Spahn.

Basically, it comes down to personal taste.
In my opinion.

I see your point though.

You can hear Wood with the Faces
that is where he had some impact.

when Wood left the Faces they lost their edge.

Stewart just became some lounge singer.


With the Stones he would not be missed. He is just a contract player.


like Nils with the E Street band.
Stevie V Z is the guitar that is heard.

Doesn't Ron Wood and Rod Stewart look like they have the same 'Face?'
