I love Rock n’ Roll music, don’t get me wrong. It’s the genre that I grew up listening to. And rock n’ roll music is what turned me on to become a musician myself. I love classic rock from bands like Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Rush, The Beatles, etc. I never liked the Rolling Stones. They have always been the most overrated band on this planet. Rolling Stones, the best rock n’ roll band in the world that people say? Not a fuckin’ chance! Mick Jagger is a horrible vocalist and the bands lyrics can get really lame and silly that it doesn’t mean anything. I’ve always admired Keith Richards as a guitarist, he’s a brilliant guitarist, I’ve always thought the Stones wrote the crapiest songs though.
Just the other day, the entire front page of youtube was all Rolling Stones videos ’cause the band just launched their official youtube account. My belief just to build up the hype for the upcoming Martin Scorsese film “Shine a Light”. I will not see that film at all.
I’m sick of all the hype of the Rolling Stones. The only reason the band is so popular and legendary is that Mick Jagger is god’s gift to women. The Rolling Stones would never be this popular if the band had a different lead singer.
I’m not into that “rock n’ roll” pop stuff, I don’t want to hear rock n’ roll music where it’s fun to dance to and sing alongs. I want to hear something tight, intense and powerful, something that knocks me out cold. The Rolling Stones does not do that to me.
I would prefer a big Led Zeppelin comeback over the Rolling Stones anytime.
