The Rolling Stones...

OK, I admit...I love the Rolling Stones..maybe this post should be in Zoo confessionals...
This summer I'm going to see them twice!
I always liked them, but at the moment I'm really into them. It's just feelgood rock for me...I can't help it. It such a shame I wasn't yet around in the sixties....cause I love their old stuff. I can't compare it with U2, cause that'll always be my band ...the music and lyrics go deeper...just totally different. Ohoh...I'm drifting off!
My question wasoes anyone here likes the Stones as well?

I The Stones. My parents took me to see them once on their Bridges to Babylon Tour and once on their No Security Tour. Incredible!

Stones have some really good tunes. I didn't realize the breadth of their work until I heard all their "best" songs on their latest compilation. Too bad I couldn't have appreciated them earlier... but I wasn't born in the right decade.

yeah, i'm a huge stones fan. in fact there have always been two bands in my life that i've loved equally - way above everything else in musi.... stones and u2.

my first love was u2 though, in 1981 when i was eight years old i really got into them after my dad bought boy and october. my brother got me interested in the stones in 1986. without exaggerating i can say that i listened to the stones' music for at least two hours a day, seven days a week, from '86 to about '92. after that the periodical listen, such as with u2 (to whom i've listeed more for the last three years for example), came. all their music is written deep in my soul. i always wanted to be keith he's my hero. i not only like their old stuff, what they do nowadays still beats most other music by length.

my favorite song: stray cat blues
my favorite album: exile on main street

if someone's interested, i indicated in the cd exchange thread that i can make an ultimate rolling stones mix ;-). and i really can!

So glad that y'all like the Stones too!
And I understand the feeling of being born in the wrong decade, cujo...would have love to be able to see the Stones live in the late sixties and seventies....and other bands ofcourse!
And the first gigs and clubtours of U2.... It would have been great...but hey, should be happy with what we've got....:yes

And btw Flaming Friar Sr; that ultimate Stonesmix sounds good...tell me more!

well I can create the best cd filled entirely with rolling stones' music. it probably will contain songs from all era's. i'll only pick songs that are my personal faves. since the stones are that huge a lot of songs may sound familiair to the one who gets the cd, but i doubt that a lot of people would know all tunes, since i'll throw in some obscure material as well.

the stones have so many hidden gems besides the mega hits!!!

Exile on Main Street and Sticky Fingers are 2 of the best albums ever.

And here's a slightly younger Mick:



Love this picture!

I had a nice picture of Bono and Mick together as well, but I couldn't get it to open; but here's the link anyway:

Ditto.

My family loves the Stones' music, and I'd always liked it, but I've really started appreciating their music more and more ever since I saw that concert on HBO, and since getting that 40 Licks CD for Christmas. They're now one of my top 3 bands.

They've got fantastic songs. There's a reason why they are a classic band. They have earned all the recognition and respect that they get in the music business.

I would love to see them (along with many other bands) live. Perhaps someday I will.

In the meantime, hope you have fun when you see them in concert. . Knowing them, I'm sure you will.

Angela
