I like the Rolling Stones but I’m not that big of a fan. I was never the one to collect all of their records. I just own one of their greatest hits albums and that’s all I need. I do like some of their songs, though. I respect the hell out of Keith Richards… I’m just not a big fan of Jagger’s singing.
So in honor of Keith’s birthday today, I just wanted to name my favorite songs by the Rolling Stones in the videos below.
“The Last Time”
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”
“Sympathy For The Devil”
“Paint It Black”
The Rolling Stones revealed they are about ready to make a huge announcement but aren’t saying what yet. I’ll bet you $20, the announcement is going to be a new album with new music and a world tour.
They’re already teasing it, here.
Even though I’m not much of a Stones fan, I guess it’s pretty exciting that the band is making a comeback finally. I’m sure they still have their popularity even if they’ve been gone for a long time and I’m sure they’ll still fill up arenas and stadiums all over the world. I’m sure they still got it.
I know what everyone is thinking. After Jagger’s surprising appearance at the Grammy’s, it was also his very first Grammy appearance ever, believe it or not, I’m sure people wonder if there is an upcoming Rolling Stones reunion in the works. The Stones haven’t done anything in music since 2007’s “A Bigger Bang” tour.
Over the years during their hiatus, they’ve been releasing re-issues like “Exile On Main St.” and other projects.
Let the Stones reunion speculation begin. I’m sure it’s already begun.
After all these years, Jagger and the Stones been gone, Jagger still has it. He can still get the audience going wild.
Phish performed on TV for the first time in many years. Here they are performing the Rolling Stones classic, “Loving Cup” in celebration of the band’s “Exile on Main St.” album. Keith Richards was even there to introduce the band to the stage. How cool is that?
See the great performance here:
Now you see how talented Phish really is when they play live. Phish are amazing live performers, I’ve seen them live in concert at least a couple of times. I love Phish and plan on seeing them again this summer at SPAC hopefully.
It’s a rare thing that Phish does TV performances. Why? Because they hardly ever do it. Their last TV performance was way back in 2004. I don’t know what show they appeared on that year but I’m trying to find out by google research, not finding anything.
On May 13th, Phish will be going on Jimmy Fallon, to perform a Rolling Stones cover off their, “Exile on Main Street” album. During Phish’s 3 day Halloween fest in Indio, California. Phish performed “Exile On Main Street” in it’s entirety. Phish will be performing one song off that record on Jimmy Fallon.
Yes, Phish do play covers at their live gigs. They have always been known to do that.
More on it here:
As to which song Phish will play from “Exile on Main St.”, I’m thinking either “Soul Survivor” or “Sweet Virginia”.
I didn’t see the America’s Got Talent finale last night so I went on youtube looking for it. I didn’t like her the first time, didn’t think she was anything special. Now when I saw this performance, I had goosebumps and she floored me this time. She’s one of the best female singers in a long time. I think I’m definitely going to buy her album. There’s something about her voice that draws you in.
Fuck everything else in American Idol or America’s Got Talent, Susan Boyle’s the best thing to come around. I was blown away by this performance. Absolutely beautiful!
Hmmmm… how do you like this? Bob Dylan, one of the biggest singer/songwriters in the world, big legend who is still playing music today, trashing the Rolling Stones? Dylan says the Stones hasn’t been good since Bill Wyman left the band, who is the Stones former bassist.

There, take that Stones fans!
