I listened to the Shine A Light Soundtrack and I dont think its any good besides the songs with Jack White and Christina Aguilara. But any way to me they sound like they r going through the motions or maybe its just me the guy that doesnt really care for the Stones. Anyway any body else not a big Stones fan or is this a crime.

Hey Isaac - you're allowed to like or dislike any music. I personally like early Rolling Stones up through let's say Let It Bleed, and then I got pretty burnt out on them. The airplay they received in the late seventies was enough to make me turn off the radio. However, I still like their music and value them as icons.

I would agree that "Shine a Light" is not a musically momentous product. The movie was a lot of fun, I thought. But I did see the Stones three times on the Bigger Bang tour. One was a stadium extravaganza in which the music took a back seat to the spectacle. The spectacle, however, was well worth seeing. The other two times were indoor venues - MGM Grand in Vegas and the Forum in LA. In Vegas they were absolutely amazing. Less so in LA but still good. I saw them in 1965 (original lineup - Brian Jones) and in 1972 (Mick Taylor) and they were tight and powerful - brilliant rock'n'roll. And, something to consider - shortly after I saw them at the Oakland Coliseum (where the Raiders and A's play) I happened to see a picture of the Stones playing the same venue in 1978. And it occurred to me - almost thirty years earlier, they played this stadium to about 50,000 people, and thirty years later they did it again. Only the Stones have been able to do that.

I know it's only rock'n'roll, but I like it.

Love the Rolling Stones since the 60's. To me Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main Street, Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Some Girls, Tattoo You are classics. Have seen these guys a few times since the early 70's and have never been disappointed in a show. Like nitelite (and Mick) says - I know it's only rock'n'roll but I like it, LOVE it.

I love all the eras of the stones. Mick Taylor dayz being the lineup I liked the best. but Brian Jones did some
groovy work and Woody is a gas.


The break at the end of "Can't you hear me knocking" is one of the great moments of improvisational rock n roll.

I have seen the stones 9 times in Atlanta. They keep pulling me back in! Sorry I missed the Shine A Light viewing at the Fox last month.

The Stones became my favorite band on the strength of the 1968-1973 run. I do love the rest of their stuff but I will not pay the price to go see them live now.

Their catalogue is so deep that even though I am sick of the Greatest Hits, they have a good 200+ songs that you never hear on the radio......

as Bud is to my drinking, the Stones are to my musical taste. In high school, we were almost exclusive. Later others took on
a more prominent role -- like the ABB and JD. But every couple of months I play a Stones CD or crack a cold Bud and they're as great as ever.

i'd actually say 90% of the good stones songs are never played on regular FM radio

Can't remember if Moonlight Mile got a lot of airplay but that's one I like - kind of a dreamy vibe to it (Sticky Fingers). Love In Vain from Let it Bleed. I posted previously about some of my favorite of their albums - try seeing if you can get some YouTubes or something online from some of those to test out.

absolutely -- you'd have to go album by album to mention their excellent unknown stuff --
Sway -- Sticky Fingers (I LOVE this tune)
Casino Boogie, All Down The Line etc -- Exile
Coming Down Again (great Keith ballad) -- Goat's Head Soup
Time Waits For No One -- It's Only Rock N Roll (others too from this, like Fingerprint File, Short & Curlies etc)
Hand Of Fate -- Black & Blue
When The Whip Comes Down -- Some Girls
Dance -- Emotional Rescue...
and on and on -- I love the Stones

I have always liked "Under My Thumb" ... the xylophone as
the lead instrument sounds crazy but actually works well. And
great example of '60s fuzzy bass.

agreed on "Time Waits For No One"..I've alway's felt that song has the best lead guitar solo of any Stones record... If some one is looking for essential Stones...I don't think that "Out Of Our Heads " can be over looked.A classic ,IMO....

IPowrie, I recommend the one-two punch of 1971's "Sticky Fingers" (on which you get "Sway," "Sister Morphine," YOu Got to Move," and "Can't you Hear Me Knocking") and the most excellent "Exile on Mainstreet," a double album that you should marinate yourself in for one full week. It is a big fat groove of an album, the soundtrack of my twenties, and you only need to deal with two radio hits as such )"Happy" and "Tumbling Dice," neither one really overplayed IMO). You can probably find them both used, and if they do not do it for you, you can safely dismiss the Stones.
