why is interference never talking about the rolling stones?

well, besides u2 fans, this board seems to have a lot of radiohead, beatles, r.e.m., bruce springsteen, arcade fire, wilco, etc. etc. fans.

but i hardly ever hear any praise for the rolling stones. considering that in terms of popularity and money, they are bigger than u2, this might seem a little odd. some might say that historically they have had a much bigger impact on popular music than u2, too.

do rolling stones fans exist on this board? are they scared from posting the same way that the bon jovi and the aerosmith fans are scared from posting?

I respect the Stones, and they have some real good tunes, but overall, I don't really like them. So I don't really talk about them.

I love the Stones. I've brought them up from time to time. I saw the Stones back in 1989 on the Steel Wheels tour. They were awesome!

I'm not sure there's really all that much to say about them anymore really.

I did just watch the Cocksucker Blues documentary a couple of days ago though. Two things stood out for me:

-- how dreary and boring everything seemed. Glamorous bits were few and far between.

-- Keith Richards had horrible teeth. I know, I know that's really shallow, but I always notice people's teeth and his were dreadful.

I think they're an incredibly overrated singles band with a catalogue of maybe 4 truely solid albums...none of which are really THAT impressive.

I suspect he did since they are nowhere near as bad looking now.

Wow, the Stones unimpressive. There's a first. The Stones are one of the best Rock and Roll bands ever! Look it up.

One of the BEST ever? No. That's not a fact. Sorry to burst your bubble. BIGGEST ever? Sure. But despite how much I've listened to their stuff (whole albums that is) I simple haven't been convinced they're anywhere near as "great" as popular culture makes them out to be.

I haven't been interested in anything the Stones have done since 1972. The shows I saw in the 80s were boring and unmemorable. They were once a great band and I still love their early stuff, but they no longer do anything worth talking about, IMO.

I am definitely a Stones fan. The work from Beggar's Banquet through Goat's Head Soup, a span of 5 albums, is consistently incredible. On top of those albums, Out of Our Heads, Some Girls, and Tattoo You are also uniformly excellent. It is a shame that, in the popular conception, the Stones have now become the epitome of "dinosaur" rock.

the bigger bang tour was a vastly more impressive undertaking than the vertigo tour (and included more rareities than any u2 show, too... so much for it being a "hits parade").

bitterness? jelousy? upset that people now see u2 as "they were cool but i only really like their early stuff" and want to take it out on the stones in return? no real reason? who knows...

the stones fucking rock
