Oh, man. I'm a Beatles-over-the-Stones fan.

"The Girl I Love" just reminds me of one of my favorite Beatles: Girl

There are so many "good ones," though...

“Boy, are there some good arguments on that! :-) “ - It was the sanctimony and hypocrisy of The Beatles that drove me nuts. That whole Maharishi phase and love,peace,love. The Stones just let it all hang out.

Yeah, you're right. People can over-think these things.

Why do they call Big Bopper a one-hit wonder when it was the B-side of his single that became the hit?

Shouldn’t that be a half-hit wonder?

Evidently, Neil Young’s improvement on MP3 called PONO (trademark application pending) will have B-sides.

I’ve told this story here before; I saw Keef in about ‘80 when he, Ron Wood, Stanley Clarke, and some others did a few shows as the New Barbarians in between Stones gigs.

We got right up on the wall in the days of “festival seating”, and Keith was maybe 10’-15’ from me for basically the whole show.

Let me tell you right now, the guy looked like Death. Warmed. Over. back then.

So “science will study the body in depth. Certainly a wonder of longevity” makes a lot of sense to me. If you’d have asked me that night if Keith would make 2012, I’d have laughed in your face.

The Rolling Stones used to sing for social change, now they sing for Budweiser.

I also heard that they were the biggest group that people had a chance of seeing in a small venue. Mick and Keith preferred them. They were known to do surprise shows in places like bars in Myrtle Beach back in the 70s and 80s.

I thought I was the last person on earth recalling Frankie Vaughn!

Incendiary, the new B-sideless Stones single is out on Youtube for downloading gratis and elsewhere to purchase (suckers!) I’ve just heard it, it’s so good I don’t remember a note or word of it. Another “Satisfaction”? Prolly not.

I hear Mick had his walker customized with a spiffy paint job and a Oogah horn that looks like the Sucking Through The Seventies Album cover to use in the stage show.

Of course for Keith all they need do is check his embalming fluid levels and he is good to go!

All kidding aside the guys can still "bring it" and at their age that is amazing!

Bunch of leftist cliches about the war in Iraq, fracking for oil, and the rich and poor. As if The Boys are strapped for cash. They globe trot to AVOID high British taxes.

They’d be better off singing about the craziness of young Russian trophy wives, drinking to excess, bemoaning the death of the blues, etc.
