: I'm a young stones fan of nineteen years young.
: I'm tired of hearing about all your bull shit about B2B. None of you old farts appreciate an album like this because your brains have fried out because of all those freakin drugs you used in the sixties and seventies. I'm also tired of hearing that Let It Bleed and Beggars Banquet are the best Stones albums.
: I and went out and bought those cd's after reading your reviews. I couldn't believe how overrated songs like "Gimme Shelter", "Monkey Man", and "Midnigh Rambler". The 40 second instrumentals to those songs is whats good about about them nad thats it. The only solid good songs were "country honk" and "You Can't Always get What You want". Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed don't have the fire and spunk like StickyFingers, Exile, Some Girls, IORR, and,Tatoo You. None of you give Tatoo you any credit even though it was the most successful album the Stones ever put out. The only good songs on BB are Sympathy, Parachute, and Prodigal Son. The rest is jangly nonesense. Let It Bleed and Beggars Banquet are good but not as good as you say. Also on the song of Any Body Seen My Baby. I bought B2B because i heard that song. That song, and the album changed alot of my friends' image of the Stones. None of them thought the Stones could put out music like that. The stones are not trying to be hip they just want to show everyone they can play any style they want. And play it good. The reason why it didn't sell is because none of the radio stations ever played any of the singles accept maybe once. Or it could be because i live in Houston. Beside's no one want's to hear anti- Jesus songs like SOM. it's a good song, it could have been alot better with different lyrics. the Stones need to grow up and realize that Christ is the greatest thing that ever happened to mankind, before its too late for them. I love the stones, but nothing is more pathetic than a fifty year old nympho, pretending to be rebel. Give it up Mick. Oh, and one more thing. If the Stones are so much better than the Beatles like most of you say, why are the Beatles whoopin them in sales. I'd like to know myself.
First of all you and I have had something in common, that being 19 and just positive we knew what was right and everyone with a different opinion or idea Had to be wrong. Another thing we had in common, we didn't have a clue. Life experiences, education and maturity, will help so don't worry. Personnaly, I liked B2B. even though the boys strayed on a lot of the songs. But, you have never seen a post from me berrating someone for NOT liking it. By the way, I live in Houston and heard ASMB and SOM a fair number of times. I only listen to 104, 107.5 and 101, no oldies. SOM is not anti Jesus, your myopic view is totally off track. If you're a redneck in addition to being 19, I'll say a prayer for you. If you insist on calling yourself a Stones fan, gain the knowledge, learn about their beginnings, their lifesyles over the years, what truly influenced their music. There are a multitude of books which will give you insight on the individuals as well as their songs and albums. Open your mind, its a terrible thing to waste. Experience the boys in concert playing some of the songs you dislike, you will adjust your attitude or stay a pretender. So much for the diatribe, I have a plane to catch this aft. for Chicago, then on to Vegas. to absorb and experience the greatest rock n roll band of all. When I was 19 I said that also, but had nothing to back it up. Thirty years later I have the knowledge and facts to make that statement.
