: I've got two questions. First, I just watched 25x5 and I was wondering why, if Brian started the band and was supposed to be the most musically gifted, was he not in on the first song writing sessions? In the video, Keith says he and Mick were locked in a kitchen until they could come up with something to give the rest of the boys to play. Where was Brian and how did he feel about this? My second question also has to do with 25x5. In the video, Charlie gives the obvious impression that he's not happy when he's on the road. Well, why the hell does he still tour? He repeatedly says he hates being on the road and that after every tour he wants to quit the band. He obviously doesn't need the money, and if Wyman can quit, what keeps Charlie on the road? Also, I'm wondering where the name 12x5 comes from on the 2nd LP and if that's where they got 25x5. Please help on any of the questions.
Brian was a gifted at making music, but could never come up with his own. BriaN WOULD ADD TO MUSIC THAT MICK AND KEITH WROTE BUT HE NEVER REALLY HAD MUCH TO OFFER AS FAR AS LYRICS WENT. HE DID COME UP WITH THE MUSIC TO THE LAST TIME BUT THAT WAS NOT OFTEN. BRIANS BIGGEST GIFT WAS ADDING THE MUSIC WITH DIFFERNT INSRUEMENTS. HE DID SUBMIT SONGS TO THE BAND BUT THEY WERE BAD ACCORDING TO MICK AND KEITH. ACCORDING THE STONES HIS SONGS WERE BAD. AS FOR CHERLIE HE DONT LIKE TOURING BUT THE MONEY KEEPS HIM IN.
