I think it`s also a matter of defining what a classic is! is it a song that sells (have
stones-singles ever sold very much?), or is it a song that people want to hear live?
in that case Out Of Control and Saint Of Me is already huge classics. Or is it that the
songs have to enter fans top 20/40. what is a classic!
To me SOM & OOC are huge classics, and from voodoo Lounge out of tears and I go Wild
are on my top 20, and if they had put some fairy dust (as Keith calls it :-) on Honest man,
that would have been there too.
I think an interesting question for people who are looking for new classics is: what do you
expect from a classic?
Im very content with the Stones Musical progresion, and have no complaints at all. And
yes, i really like B2B!! :) infact I think it`s brilliant! And im happy that they are trying new
thing, cos` im afraid the alterbative is no Stones at all, and isn`t a scary thought!
Just some thoughts!
