I was just curious if there were any Rolling Stones fans on the board ? I realize there are a lot of younger people that post here , but does the Stones reach into your generation ?

I was born in 65 so I don't really think they would be considered my generation either . I didn't start getting into them until about 78 or 79 .

What brought this up was that I heard on the radio they were preparing for a 40th anniversary tour !

40 years , that's pretty damn impressive !

The only chance I ever got to see them was on their

" Bridges to Babylon " tour . I have to say , that was truly was one of the best concerts I have seen . I actually thought that was a rather good CD also .

They're not many acts that I would care to see live anymore , but if the Stones come to Nashville or any where close , I know that I will definitely go see them again !

Just a side note : I heard Ron Wood had to get out of rehab first , a two ltr. vodka a day habit , although I suspect it was more than alcohol as his only vice .

I have Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers, and Exile on Main St. I like them all, but I'm not a huge Stones fan. They were really good back then, but I think they should have broken up or stopped touring about 20 years ago.

I admit I went and saw the opening night of the Bridges to Babylon tour with some friends a few years ago at Soldier Field. It's fun to go see them once since you know ALL the songs basically. I wouldn't go again though, and I know I overpaid for that one time.

Hi! Why am I making my first post in THIS thread? Damned if I know.

I like their stuff through about '74 or so, plus a couple scattered singles through the early '80s. After that, though... urgh.

I also consider "Let It Bleed" probably the best album of 1969 (the Stooges' debut a close second). "Stickyfingers" is great, too, even if I have to stare at some guy's crotch every time I pull out the CD case.

I've also got a swank LP I bought used for $4. Joe Pass: "Stones Jazz". Circa 1965-66, these really cool uptempo jazz renditions of "Mother's Little Helper" and "19th Nervous Breakdown" and "Satisfaction". They sound surprisingly uncontrived.

Been a Stones fan (Keith, in particular) since about 1988 - when I was 13-14 years old.

I started with Hot Rocks, and worked my way through various albums - though I'm proud to say that I've never bought a copy of "Goat's Head Soup" or "Black And Blue," even if I did own copies of "Emotional Rescue" and "Undercover." I loved when they reunited in 1989 for "Steel Wheels," though I'm still pissed at my father for flat out denying me permission to get tickets to that tour (and later denying that he ever denied me permission). I was fortunate enough to see 'em in 1994 for "Voodoo Lounge," and that still is the best concert I've ever been to. Got tickets to "Bridges to Babylon," but hated the show - partly because I was stuck in the lower level with the overhang obstructing my view of the stage, partly because I was surrounded by drunk, burn-out middle-aged fuckers (who were heckling Keith, no less), and partly because the Stones just weren't that good that night.

On a somewhat-related note, I recently found my copy of Keith's 1988 solo album ("Talk is Cheap") and have been playing it lately. If you can find a copy, pick it up - it is a greatly underrated album.

Your right about that being greatly underrated RR ! I actually had it on cassette and had completely forgotten about it until you mentioned it ! Who epitomizes Rock n Roll more than Keith !

I've been into the Stones for a few years now(I'm now 20), and although I like the newer stuff on Bridges to Babylon, I have to say that their pinnacle was with the Mick Taylor line-up and the holy trinty of Le it Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street, althugh for rock n' roll personality the Keith and Ronny duo is the best, the music during the Mick Taylor era is the best, in particular, tracks like Tumbling Dice and Wild Horses that are the definate article as far as rock ballads.

40 years together is very impressive, but I think that the Stones and credibility are are on the verge of separation, especially Jagger, so I fear there'll be no more studio albums. Hoepfully, though this'll mean that the back catalogue will be sorted out properly, but fortunately, until then, The Blak Crowes seem intent on carrying on being the old Rolling Stones, so all is well.
