    Just discovered The Rolling Stones. I have no idea why, but tonight is the first time I've listened to one of their albums in full. Let It Bleed is an amazing record.

    Been into them since I was a kid. I was indoctrinated, really.

    Very good, they are.

    Can't beat Gimme Shelter as an opener.

    Are they a parody band? They can't hold a candle to The Ants
    I'm perplexed as to why they have such an expansive wiki page.

    Got Beggars Banquet cos wikipedia said it's one of the best. Seems wikipedia is correct.

    I saw them live at Wembley Stadium in '92, I think it was. They were fucking awesome.

    Yeah they're a bit niche.

    I've never really listened to any Stones. I like Paint It Black though, innit.

    How did such an obscure band get a gig at such an infamous arena?

    Strangely enough, same here. They really were rather excellent. I now understand the fuss.

    Today's bands certainly aren't worth listening to.

    I often find myself popping in some Stones or Zeppelin...or, pretty much anyone that could be considered "good" at any point in time, except by today's standards.

    'Get off of my cloud' or 'Paint it black' FTW.

    Same here, Craigy - although I "knew of" The Stones and quite liked a few of their hits, I hadn't really spent much time listening to their back catalogue until earlier this year. It still feels like I've wasted a whole lot of time that could have been spent enjoying their music, 'cos I love it!

    I tend to be late to the party a lot with music, though.

    Gimme Shelter has one of my favourite intros of all time. The rest of the song is a bit meh though.
  • Deleted user 23 September 2009 23:14:44
    Listen to Exile on Maine Street - best album of the era ever. Seriously.

    Dont wanna walk, talk about Jesus
    Just wanna see his face

    Sticky Fingers, Get Yer Yayas Out etc all very good albums in their own rights as well

    By a street a better musical group than Beatles but less of an impact.

    Wild Horses is a brilliant song, no not Crazy horses you are thinking of The Osmonds.
    Street Fighting man: perfect
    Gimme Shelter: perfect
    Sympathy for the devil: perfect
    Undercover of the night; perfect

    The Stones were and still are a great band. Defo should have a Stones Rock Band with the same love the Beatles have got

    Best Stones song is You Can't Always Get What You Want. I think I might ask for it to be played at my funeral.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Gimme Shelter is probably the most played RB song I've got. Paint It Black would get more love too but it requires a disc change.

    The Stones are awesome.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.
