    I've got ALL their albums, plus boots and boots... It's a little harder than having all CVH records, unfortunately.
    I have a preference for the Mick Taylor period.
    I have too many fave songs, but I'll mention the following, which aren't part of the same old ones they will play at every concert:

    - Jivin' sister Fanny;
    - Memo from Turner;
    - Stray Cat Blues (they played it again during their 2002 tour) (Beggars Banquet, maybe the last great B. Jones/K. Richards - amazing - guitar duet);
    - You got the silver;
    - Monkey Man (1994-95 tour, but they played it a in a disappointingly slow way) (Let It Bleed);
    - Can't you hear me knocking (2002 tour, Jagger was not really good on that one, he should give up harp);
    - Bitch (Sticky Fingers);
    - All down the line;
    - Star star;
    - Silver train (Goat's Head Soup);
    - Dance little sister;
    - If you can't rock me (a pretty good version on the last tour) (It's Only R & R);
    - I'm going down;
    With Ronnnie Wood:
    - Crazy Mama (see link) (Black & Blue);
    - Before they make me run;
    - Some girls (the song);
    - When the whip comes down (Some Girls);
    - Where the boys go (Emotional Rescue);
    - Little T & S ;
    - Slave (Tattoo You);
    - Undercover of the night (Undercover is very underrated IMO);
    - She was hot (why the fuck don't they ever play that gem live?!) (Undercover);
    - Had it with you;
    - Too rude (Dirty Work);
    - Slippin' away;
    - Sad sad sad (very well exploited on stage back then and on the last tour, though; I saw them in Paris in 1990) (Steel Wheels);
    - Mean disposition;
    - Sparks will fly (Voodoo Lounge);
    - Rough Justice, on their new album really makes it. The whole record is very good IMO.

    I didn't mention songs from their pre-1968 period because even if many tunes were great as far as composition, I can hardly bear any song by anybody before made 68 because of how they sound and the kind of naive tone of (mainly background) vocals.

    There are a few exceptions:

    - Who's driving your plane?;
    - Family;
    - 2000 light years from home (outstanding);
    - Who's been sleeping here (which sounds 100% sixties, but it's one of my faves);

    The single "Highwire" (1991) was great, both the music and the lyrics rocked (first war in the Gulf, I guess at least everybody in the US remembers the song: I'll post the lyrics sooner).

    Just for fun, here is a link to a video a guy made for "Crazy Mama" and posted in the Iggy Pop forum:

    Here they are:

    Recorded January, 1991. That was an anti-oil, anti-war song. It was released in the UK as a single on March 11, '91 and the first verse was banned and edited out by the BBC. Also released on the album Flashpoint, in April '91.
    Lead Vocals: Mick Jagger Guitars: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger Bass: Bill Wyman Drums: Charlie Watts Backing Vocals: Bernard Fowler.

    Great riff, great sound, a very stonian tune.

    "Highwire"
    (Jagger/Richards)

    We sell 'em missiles, We sell 'em tanks
    We give 'em credit, You can call the bank
    It's just a business, You can pay us in crude
    You love these toys, just go play out your feuds
    Got no pride, don't know whose boots to lick
    We act so greedy, makes me sick sick sick

    So get up, stand up, out of my way
    I want to talk to the boss right away
    Get up, stand up, who's gonna pay
    I want to talk to the man right away

    We walk the highwire
    Sending the men up to the front line
    Hoping they don't catch the hell fire
    With hot guns and cold, cold nights

    We walk the highwire
    Sending the men up to the front line
    And tell 'em to hotbed the sunshine
    With hot guns and cold, cold nights

    Our lives are threatened, our jobs at risk
    Sometimes dictators need a slap on the wrist

    Another Munich we just can't afford
    We're gonna send in the eighty-second airborne

    Get up, stand up, who's gonna pay
    I wanna talk to the boss right away
    Get up, stand up, outta my way
    I wanna talk to the man right away

    We walk the highwire
    Putting the world out on a deadline
    And hoping they don't catch the shellfire
    With hot guns and cold, cold nights

    We walk the highwire
    Putting the world out on a deadline
    Catching the bite on primetime
    With hot guns and cold, cold nights

    Get up! Stand up!
    Dealer! Stealer!
    Hey!

    We walk the highwire
    We send all our men into the front lines
    We're hoping that we backed the right side
    With hot guns and cold, cold nights

    We walk the highwire
    We send all the men up to the front lines
    And hoping they don't catch the hellfire
    With hot guns and cold cold, cold, cold, cold nights

    We walk the highwire
    We walk the highwire
    With hot guns and cold, cold, cold nights

    With hot guns and cold, cold nights...

    That was the last thing good ole Bill Wyman recorded with the Stones...

    Damn right! It's their best record, not only because there were two, but for the reason you gave: there isn't a single song to throw away from it.

    Highwire was kinda rubbish to me. Take Hony-Tonk Woman, speed it up, then mix in Brown Sugar and Must Be Hell. Think Mick should leave the poli-sci warblings to Bono.

    Stones were great. Even when I finally saw 'em in 1989, long after I had any use for their studio work. Fantastic show, 2hr+45min of one great song after another. Stones have such a backlog of great tunes pre-1983 that they can easily do 2hr+ live and have no dead spots.

    Nowadays, they're a bit past it. Obviously am just speaking for myself, but after finally getting to see them on the Steel Wheels tour, am convinced they should have just packed it in then. Suppose as long as people still go to see them and enjoy it that's fine. But there's no element of surprise or danger to the band now. Pretty much like, "Oh, the Stones are back on the road again, proving they've still got it," yawn. Kinda boring.

    The Mick Taylor years were the apex of the band, agreed.

    There's much truth in your post.

    What about Keith's songs (I mean those he sings)? I personally dig almost all of them, especially:

    Salt of the earth
    I got the silver
    Happy (though it's got harder for him to sing it in tune these days)
    Before they make me run
    Too rude
    Slippin' away
    You don't have to mean it (the only track I dig on Bridges to Babylon, it sounds so fresh and even very genuine)
    The one he sings on the last album (I don't remember the title and there are so few indications on the inside sleeve...)

    The guy Keith is such a human phenomenon... Ha! Ha! I have a lot of respect and sympathy for them all, whatever they may say about them (old farts, blah, richer than Ali Baba, blah, blah, should have stopped since blah, blah, blah, etc). Keith has that incredible energy, so does Mick Jagger, and they both have a great sense of humour. The pair of them are such a huge composing duet... Charlie hits his kit like nobody else, that beat of his, man, so unique... And Ronnie seems to have stopped getting stoned so that he has quit wasting their live music. He sounds great now with the Stones, at last.

    The folks who suggest they should have retired would complain if they had left the circus, today.

    There was some funny stuff when Mick and Keef were fighting like two little spoiled bitches during the mid-to-late eighties. Mick could never recover from Keef's one-liners.

    Remember the one where Keef went, "he should really do something about those jowls...first the lips, now the jowls?"

    Yeah, at least it was all very funny, anyway. But I still wonder how far those fights actually were from concerted publicity...

    Great thread! When i was younger all I heard about was the Beatles. When I finally started listening to Rock n Roll and I was turned on to the Stones..there was no looking back. Satisfaction was the first song I heard and from Keith's opening guitar riffs I was hooked! I'm happy the band is just as popular as ever. I think they are worth any ticket price and God bless Mick and the boys for giving us some stellar music over the years. Let's spend the night together is one of my favorite rock songs of all times. Exile On Main Street is one hell of a album...classic. That's funny it was mentioned cause I was just listening to that last night. They just have so many great songs. After the 80's I really didnt listen as much...but as the years go on and on I always come back to THE GREATEST ROCK AND ROLL BAND IN THE WORLD! Hey...It' It's only rock n roll but I like it!!!

    The Stones were a great band.

    I particulary dig the Let it Bleed to Exile on Main St. period.
    They were flawless during that period.

    If your really really dig the Stones...I suggest you pick up a couple of bootlegs:

    1. Leed Guitars and TV Stars Leeds University 1971. Here the Stones debut some of the songs from Sticky Fingers. The band is raw and right on target!

    2. brussells Affair. Brussells Belgium 1973. The band is on fire. Mick Taylor's solo on Midnight Rambler is the best I have ever heard.

    A couple of official releases from that period that alot of people discount are:

    1. Get yer ya yas out. This is a fantastic concert taken from the Madison Square Garden in 1969. The band is in great raw form. I love to listen to the "stripped down" Stones. I have about 300 Stones bootlegs and the majority of the Stones material is "big Production" horn sections and a plethora of back up singers. Not here. This is the Stones RAW!

    2. Rock and Roll Circus. This is one of the last if not last live recording with Brian Jones done in 1968. This recording is so fucking raw it sounds like they are playing in your local bar. No back up singers, no saxophones, no Keys...just 5 guys playing pure raunch and roll.

    Also with the Rock N Roll Circus there is a fantastic performance of The Who's..a quick one....If you are a fan of The 'oo and have not heard this, you should be ashamed. Their performance is mindblowing!

    There is also a great performance of Lennon, Clapton, Richards, and Mitchell doing 'yer blues'...fucking great stuff

    There is some filler on there as well...marianne faithful, jethro dull, taj mahal...I just made my own CD of The Stones, Lennon, and The Who.


    If you have the means or the wherewithal, I highly recommend picking up all of these releases/bootlegs.

    I am sure fellow Stones lover and aficiando FORD will back me up on this!

    The Stones had a string of albums in the late 60's early 70's that is absolutely unmatched in the history of rock!

    Beggars Banquet- (my fave!)
    Let It Bleed
    Exile on Main Street
    Sticky Fingers

    AND, a great live album in the mix- Get Yer Ya Ya's Out. Check out the smoking version of Stray Cat Blues on that one!

    They were simply fucking inspired during those years.

    NEW YORK — Ronnie Wood says the Rolling Stones will meet in a recording studio later this month "to just throw some ideas around."

    The guitarist for the legendary rock group said Monday that he and the band just want "to get the feel again."

    He also added that the Rolling Stones 50th anniversary is like training for something big.

    "It's like working out for the Olympics or something," Wood said. "You've got to go into training. So we're going to go into training."

    Wood made the comments Monday in an interview following a press conference for his exhibition, "Faces, Time and Places," which features his own paintings. It includes pieces of him and his band mates, as well as Muhammad Ali and Al Pacino.

    Wood, who said he first started painting at age 3, enjoys doing it because it's a reflection of his own ideas, unlike music, which he calls "a group effort."

    The exhibit launched Monday and will close June 30.

    Wood's week will get busier when he is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday as a member of The Faces, along with Rod Stewart. It will be the second induction for the 64-year-old Wood. The Rolling Stones were inducted in 1989.

    He'll also perform a solo show at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, N.J., on April 21. When asked what fans should expect, he said: "Lots of surprises because I'm going to surprise myself. I don't know what the hell is coming next. The whole set list is going to be made up. I'm making it up every day now."

    Wood says he would love go on a solo tour "if I had enough time, but I have too many commitments."

    He also talked about possibly recording another solo album.

    "Lots of people don't know I've made seven, `cause most of my albums escape; they're not released," he said, laughing. "Keith (Richards) says they all skyrocket to oblivion."

    Did any one read the keef autobiog "life"
    I really enjoyed it , I had read a couple of general music bios of people i like and they had kinda been basically not very good so I was pleasantly surprised .
    For me it's a tough balancing act from a auto biog I want :

    1. Their humerous/entertaining stories
    2. Their version of how things happened in their story... Their version of events.
    3. And their discription of the mechanics of what they do musically .

    I wanna hear how an album was done or how they recorded stuff or even their fav chords.
    I think life had a good mix of all of the above .... It avoided the ... "we made this album" discribed in a paragraph then a chapter on some trivial personal shite I wanna good mix ... I want the person to remember I bought the book cause I liked their music not because I wanna hear how they met the wife .. Yes am interested in that but that wasnt my primary interest I want the full story of their life without quickly skipping the musical history ..

    Some reason in the last 3-4 weeks I have heard Gimme Shelter somewhere just about every day. Damn that's such a fucking good song. I used to HATE Mick Jagger. Thought he was just some flaming faggot hopping all over the damn place. Finally went & saw the Stones at the LA Coliseum back in 1988 or so. One humongous concert and I have an entirely new respect & appreciation for the man. He WAS the show. The guy is utterly amazing live and I had judged him just from some photos & MTV videos. Unfair. Playing live the guy is a fucking showman extraordinaire.

    Seen them at

    LA Coliseum - 80,000 people
    Jack Murphy Stadium x2 - 62,000
    Dodger Stadium - 58,000

    Thanks for posting this!

    Ronnie Wood's a realk cool guy in my book - and in so many people's book in the music field...

    I love his solo stuff - even his cat's voice -, they groove a lot!

    The Faces are one of my top fave bands ever - he was so great a player - and composer - back then.

    Among the Stones, it's another story. I love many albums he's made with them, especially "Some Girls", but the guitars sound a little messy with Woody.

    I like the Stones very much.........from the late 70's......till now..........don't like their early stuff at all..............

    My favourite albums : VOODOO LOUNGE == DIRTY WORK == BRIDGES TO BABYLON == Tattoo you = Steel Wheels == Undercover == Emotional Resque

    I've seen them 5 times live, and they've never dissapointed me, great shows!!

    I like also MICK JAGGER's solo stuff very much, got some bootleg dvd's where he's doing solo and Stones songs, awesome!!

    They never have, as far as I know. Even during the Bridges to Babylon tour, where they actually took daily requests via poll on their website, and played the winning song each night, I think "Emotional Rescue" was one of the few songs that never even came up for a vote. I know it can't be the "disco" thing, because they still play "Miss You" all the time, and they even dragged out "Dance" on the 40 Licks tour. I don't think Mick likes to do the falsetto voice live all that much, and you really can't do "Emotional Rescue" without it. (In fact I remember when that song first came out, people were calling the radio station demanding that they "get that Bee Gees shit off the air", not realizing it was the Stones! )


    The entire "Emotional Rescue" album hasn't really got a lot of love from the band, really.... As I said, "Dance" finally made it into the set in 2002. "She's So Cold" was heard in 1981. They actually rehearsed "Summer Romance" for Saturday Night Live long before this album even came out, but it wasn't on the actual broadcast. And I think Keef broke out "All About You" on one of the later tours, but I couldn't say which one off the top of my head. Other than that, the record has been pretty much abandoned.

    I think you're right about JAGGER doesn't like to sing with that falsetto voice, but I've seen//heared him singing live 'SWEET THING' from one of his solo albums with that falsetto voice

    and he did this very well!!!

    While the Keith Richards-reported news that Keith Richards is helping to make a movie about Keith Richards has, surprisingly, yet to take more concrete shape, Deadline claims that another slightly fictionalized Rolling Stones film is in the works based on Robert Greenfield's 2008 account Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones. In descending order of the weight they were given in Greenfield's book, the story covers the era when the Stones holed up in the south of France, entertained a gaggle of '60s celebrities and assorted local characters, plowed through epic amounts of drugs, gave Greenfield the inspiration to insert overwrought Shakespeare allusions, and also happened to record an album or something. Now that plenty-well-documented time period will get another dramatic retelling courtesy of Richard Branson, who took time out of playing with his spaceships to option the film rights through the Virgin Produced arm of his vast multimedia-and-flying-machines company. Although Branson definitely has a Stones "in," having released the group's last three albums through the Virgin label, as with Keith Richards' proposed Life and the Brian Jones movie Stoned before it, the deal doesn't as yet include the music rights. Fortunately, Greenfield's book suggests you don't even really need them.

    I know that article has a current date on it, but considering the Stones haven't been with Virgin records since 2006, you have to wonder if some of that info isn't recycled.
