Gram Parsons would have been 65 today.

Mick's divorce to Bianca became finalized in 1979

The Stones did have suits, but after one ot two gigs they pretended to 'lose' them and left them behind in a dressing room somewhere. I think it Andrew L-Oldham who bought them the suits so they looked legit. Legit shit!

Yeah, those houndstooth jackets---and I think there were cumberbunds and everything! I read that each one started "losing" a piece or two of their ensemble, and after a couple of weeks, no one tried to "suit up" the Stones again... :P

Nov. 23, 1889: S.F. Gin Joint Hears the World's First Jukebox
By Tony Long 11.23.07


For a nickel apiece a thrilled group tunes in on a screechy jukebox of the 1890s.

1889: The first jukebox is installed at the Palais Royale Saloon in San Francisco. It becomes an overnight sensation, and its popularity spreads around the world.

That first jukebox was constructed by the Pacific Phonograph Company. Four stethoscope-like tubes were attached to an Edison Class M electric phonograph fitted inside an oak cabinet. The tubes operated individually, each being activated by the insertion of a coin, meaning that four different listeners could be plugged in to the same song simultaneously.
Towels were supplied to patrons so they could wipe off the end of the tube after each listening.

The success of the jukebox eventually spelled the end of the player piano, then the most common way of pounding out popular music to a line of thirsty barflies.
The machine was originally called the “nickel-in-the-slot player” by Louis Glass, the entrepreneur who installed it at the Palais Royale. (A nickel then had the buying power of $1.08 today.) It came to be known as the jukebox only later, although the origin of the word remains a bit vague. It may derive from “juke house,” a slang reference to bawdy house, where music was not unknown.

On this day in 1997, Jimmy Rogers died.





In 1947, Rogers, Muddy Waters and Little Walter began playing together
as Muddy Waters' first band in Chicago (sometimes referred to as "The
Headcutters" or "The Headhunters" due to their practice of stealing jobs
from other local bands), while the band members each recorded and
released music credited to each of them as solo artists. The first Muddy
Waters band defined the sound of the nascent "Chicago Blues" style
(more specifically "South Side" Chicago Blues). Rogers made several
more sides of his own with small labels in Chicago, but none were
released at the time. He began to enjoy success as a solo artist with
Chess Records in 1950, scoring a hit with "That's All Right", but he
stayed with Muddy Waters until 1954. In the mid 1950s he had
several successful releases on the Chess label, most featuring
either Little Walter Jacobs or Big Walter Horton on harmonica,
most notably "Walking By Myself", but as the 1950s drew to a
close and interest in the blues waned, he gradually withdrew
from the music industry.

In the early 1960s Rogers briefly worked as a member of Howling
Wolf's band, before quitting the music business altogether for almost
a decade. He worked as a taxicab driver and owned a clothing store
that burned down in the Chicago riots that followed the assassination
of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. He gradually began performing
in public again, and in 1971 when fashions made him a reasonable
draw in Europe, Rogers began occasionally touring and recording,
including a 1977 reunion session with his old bandleader Muddy
Waters. By 1982, Rogers was again a full-time solo artist.




In 1995 Rogers was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Rogers

He continued touring and recording albums until his death from colon
cancer in Chicago in 1997. His last album, "Blues Blues Blues", was
released posthumously. It features Mick Jagger and Keith Richards,
among other luminaries.

Winfield Scott "Scotty" Moore III (born December 27, 1931, near Gadsden, Tennessee) is
an American guitarist. He is best known for his backing of Elvis Presley in the first and greatest
part of his career, between 1954 and the beginning of Elvis' Hollywood years. He was ranked
twenty-ninth in Rolling Stone magazine's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2011.

Blue Moonlighting
Making Film and Music History Simultaneously
by Jim Ridley
From Nashville Scene, August 1, 1996.
Copyright © 1996, CityPress Publishing, Inc.

On Tuesday, July 9, at a small recording studio in upstate New York, a Nashville film crew was on hand as musical history was made. As video and audio tape rolled into the wee, wee hours, five decades of rock 'n' roll greats, including members of the Band, the Rolling Stones, the Rock 'n' Roll Trio, and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, gathered at Band drummer Levon Helm's studio in Woodstock, N.Y., for an all-night jam session of epic proportions.

The occasion was the visit of two of rock 'n' roll's most influential players, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana, who are recording tracks for an upcoming album and accompanying documentary. As guitarist and drummer for Elvis Presley's 1950s backing band, the Blue Moon Boys, Moore and Fontana helped ignite a revolution in pop music that has never been quelled. Since 1968, when they reunited to back Elvis in his dramatic '68 comeback TV special, they've largely remained outside the spotlight, focusing on session work and side careers.

That will change next year with the release of a feature-length documentary on the Blue Moon Boys, which coincides with Moore and Fontana's new album and the publication of Moore's long-awaited autobiography. (It also coincides with the 20th anniversary of Elvis' death in 1977.) The album is being recorded in sessions around the country with an all-star guest list, which so far includes the Mavericks, Tracy Nelson, the Tractors, Cheap Trick, Joe Ely, the BoDeans, Chet Atkins, and the reformed Bill Black Combo--whose founder, the late bassist Bill Black, rounded out the Blue Moon Boys. The sessions are being filmed by Nashville director Thom Oliphant, who has followed Moore and Fontana on a sentimental journey through the Memphis, Louisiana, and Arkansas of rock 'n' roll's infancy.

"We wanted to tell the story from their point of view," says Dan Griffin, who is coproducing the documentary with Philip Cheney, a member (with Oliphant) of the local film-production group known as the Collective. "They're probably the only people in the Elvis world that haven't cashed in on it." The model for the documentary, he says, is Let's Get Lost, Bruce Weber's haunting 1989 portrait of the late jazz trumpeter Chet Baker.

Where the musical footage in that film was somber, however, the raucous atmosphere at Helm's Woodstock studio sounds anything but. Keith Richards, who has called Moore "the man who made me want to play," brought his 82-year-old father Bert. Helm brought longtime Bandmates Rick Danko and Garth Hudson, along with relative newcomers Jim Weider, Richard Bell, and Randy Cairlante. Former Heartbreakers drummer Stan Lynch produced. (Other tracks have been produced by D'Ville Records impresario Garry Tallent.) After laying down a guitar track with Moore, Richards swapped vocals with Helm on a sweltering number called "Deuce and a Quarter," which was penned by Nashvillians Gwil Owen and Kevin Gordon.

The evening only got hotter, as Graham Parker, Marshall Crenshaw, and Rock 'n' Roll Trio guitarist Paul Burlison joined the group for a jam session that was still going strong at 4 a.m. The roomful of legends tore through cover after cover, including a hair-raising version of "Willie and the Hand Jive" that found Richards playing a floor tom while Fontana and Helm dueled on their kits. (The gifted Nashville photographer Jim Herrington, who has ably chronicled the Lower Broadway honky-tonk scene, was snapping pictures all the while.) In total, Moore and Fontana spent three days in Woodstock, thus giving the moviemakers 24 solid hours of High-8 studio footage. "It was the most incredible musical moment of my life," Griffin says.

The documentary promises other treats as well. Rare footage taken in 1969, during sessions for the album Mother Earth Country, shows Moore, Fontana, and Tracy Nelson performing in Moore's Nashville studio with the Jordanaires, Charlie McCoy, and Pete Drake. The footage was shot, intriguingly enough, by noted underground filmmaker Robert Frank, director of the often-bootlegged Rolling Stones documentary Cocksucker Blues.

Griffin says the film has been in the works for nearly five years, but it gathered steam with the participation of Moore, who in the past had understandably shied away from the deluge of Elvis-related projects. "I've never seen Scotty happier," Griffin said after the Woodstock sessions. As dawn approached after hours of jamming, Moore was seen passing Burlison in the hall on the way to his room. "Paul, don't you steal any of my licks," joked Moore to the man whose fuzzbomb technique on "Train Kept A Rollin' " is considered a milestone in rock 'n' roll guitar. Burlison is said to have laughed. Watch for the documentary early in the fall of 1997 and the LP next spring.

Tampa Red (January 8, 1904[1] – March 19, 1981), born Hudson Woodbridge but known
from childhood as Hudson Whittaker, was an American blues musician.

Tampa Red is best known as an accomplished and influential
blues guitarist who had a unique single-string slide style. His
songwriting and his silky, polished "bottleneck" technique
influenced other leading Chicago blues guitarists, such as
Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Nighthawk, as well as Muddy
Waters, Elmore James, Mose Allison and many others.
In a career spanning over 30 years he also recorded pop,
R&B and hokum records. His best known recordings include
the classic compositions 'It's Tight Like That', 'Black Angel
Blues', 'Crying Won't Help You', 'It Hurts Me Too', and 'Love
Her with a Feeling'".



In 1928, Tampa Red became the first black musician to
play a National steel-bodied resonator guitar, the loudest
and showiest guitar available before amplification, acquiring
one in the first year they were available. This allowed him
to develop his trademark bottleneck style, playing single
string runs, not block chords, which was a precursor to
later blues and rock guitar soloing. The National guitar
he used was a gold-plated tricone, which was found in
Illinois in the 1990s by music-shop owner and guitarist
Randy Clemens and later sold to the "Experience Music
Project" in Seattle. Tampa Red was known as "The Guitar
Wizard".

Born this day in 1924 - the great Slim Harpo!


Born James Moore in Lobdell, Louisiana, the eldest in
an orphaned family, he worked as a longshoreman and
building worker during the late 1930s and early 1940s.
He began performing in Baton Rouge bars under the name
Harmonica Slim and later accompanied his brother-in-law,
Lightnin' Slim, both live and in the studio.

Named Slim Harpo by producer J.D. "Jay" Miller, he started
his own recording career in 1957. His solo debut was the
Grammy Hall of Fame single "I'm a King Bee" backed with
"I Got Love If You Want It."

Harpo recorded with Miller in Crowley, Louisiana for Excello
Records, based in Nashville, Tennessee, and enjoyed a string
of popular R&B singles, including Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
inductee "Rainin' In My Heart" (1961) and the number one
Billboard R&B hit "Baby Scratch My Back" (1966). On these
recordings he was accompanied by the regular stable of
Excello musicians, including Lazy Lester.

Never a full-time musician, Harpo had his own trucking
business during the 1960s.


He died following a heart attack in 1970 at
the age of 46, and was buried in Mulatto Bend
Cemetery in Port Allen, Louisiana.


The Rolling Stones recorded Slim's "I'm A King Bee" on their first album,
and "Shake Your Hips" on Exile On Main St. Both are faithful to the original
recordings, unlike their Robert Johnson covers which they tended to radically
rewrite.


The Stones' first live album is called "Got LIVE If You Want It", a reference
to Slim's "Got Love If You Want It".

Today is Feb. 4:

In 1894, Belgian musician and inventor Adolphe Sax died at 79. He gave the world the saxophone, the saxtromba and the sax horn.

In 1928, "Les Disciples de Massenet," a 65-voice mixed choir, was founded in Montreal by Charles Goulet. By 1979, its 51st anniversary, the choir was estimated to have given 1,500 performances, including several tours of Europe.

In 1948, Vincent Fournier, better known as Alice Cooper, was born in Detroit. His rock 'n' roll horror show in the 1970's featured chicken-killing and snake-fondling while singing such songs as "Refrigerator Heaven" and "I'm Eighteen." Cooper went into semi-retirement in 1977, when alcohol problems forced him to undergo hospital treatment. He later returned to performing. He released his 25th studio album, "Along Came a Spider," in July, 2008.

In 1962, Capitol Records of Canada released "The Beatles'" "Love Me Do," more than two years before the single was released in the U.S. Former Capitol A&R man Paul White says "Love Me Do" sold a grand total of 88 (correct) copies. The follow-up, "Please, Please Me," did little better, but the third single, "She Loves You," went to the top of the Canadian charts. Three "Beatles" albums -- "Beatlemania! With the Beatles," "Twist and Shout" and "Long Tall Sally" -- came out in Canada before the group had made much impact in the U.S.

In 1969, Columbia Records signed Johnny Winter to a five-year, $300,000 contract, which was unprecedented for a new artist.

In 1971, "The Osmonds" received their first gold record, for "One Bad Apple."

In 1977, "American Bandstand" ran a special 25th anniversary show on ABC television. Among the highlights were Chuck Berry. An all-star band, including Charlie Daniels, "The Pointer Sisters" and Gregg Allman, jammed on "Roll Over Beethoven."

In 1982, British rocker Alex Harvey died, one day short of his 47th birthday.

In 1983, singer Karen Carpenter died at her parents' home in Los Angeles of a heart attack brought on by her running battle with anorexia nervosa. Her death at the age of 32 brought about more public awareness of the disease, characterized by a loss of appetite brought on by mental illness. "The Carpenters" -- Karen and her brother Richard -- first gained notice in 1970 with their soft-rock cover version of "The Beatles" "Ticket to Ride." Later that year came their first chart-topping record, "Close to You." That was followed by a dozen other hits, including two other No. 1s, "Top of the World" in 1973 and "Please Mr. Postman" in 1975.

In 1987, Liberace, the flashy entertainer who earned the title "Mr. Showmanship," died at his home in Palm Springs, Calif., at age 67. His doctor said Liberace had been gravely ill for weeks from a combination of anemia, emphysema and heart disease. But a later autopsy revealed that Liberace died from a form of pneumonia caused by AIDS. Liberace dazzled audiences for four decades with his romantic piano flourishes and outrageous costumes. His trademark was candelebras adorning his pianos.

In 1989, Jethro Burns, the mandolin-playing half of the country music duo "Homer and Jethro," died in Evanston, Ill., of cancer. He was 69.

In 1989, Australian Trevor Lucas, a veteran of the British folk-rock bands "Fotheringay" and "Fairport Convention," died in Sydney of a heart attack. He was 45.

In 1995, "The Rolling Stones" played before the largest crowd on their "Voodoo Lounge" tour, 100,000 people at a the real football stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

In 1996, Rob Pilatus of the defunct pop duo "Milli Vanilli" was clobbered with a baseball bat after he tried to break into a car and a house in Los Angeles. Residents held him until police arrived. He was sentenced to a total of 90 days in jail for that incident and two other violent confrontations. Pilatus and partner Fabrice Moran were stripped of their best new artist Grammy in 1990 after it was revealed that they hadn't sung a note on their hit album "Girl, You Know It's True." Pilatus was found dead in Frankfurt, Germany, on April 4, 1998. He was 32.

In 2001, J.J. Johnson, the most influential trombonist in postwar jazz, committed suicide in Indianapolis at 77. He translated the fast, linear style of bebop to the trombone in the late 1940's. His career included leading his own band, playing with legends like Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, and composing.

In 2003, Charles Biddle, a bassist who promoted the first Montreal International Jazz Festival and launched his own club, died at age 76.

In 2009, it was announced that Barbara Mandrell, Roy Clark and Charlie McCoy would become the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony was held on May 17.

In 2009, multiple Grammy winner Shakira dedicated a $6 million school sponsored by her foundation, Pies Descalzos, to the humble La Playa district in her hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia. The 13,000-square-metre school will cater to 1,800 students and is the fifth the singer-songwriter's foundation has built.

In 2009, Lux Interior (real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser), co-founder and lead singer of the pioneering horror-punk band "The Cramps," died at age 62. The group was a part of the late '70's early punk scene centred at Manhattan clubs like CBGB, alongside acts like "The Ramones" and Patti Smith. The band's breakthrough debut EP was 1979's "Gravest Hits."

In 2010, a Federal Court in Sydney ruled that the Australian band "Men at Work" stole the flute melody from their hit 1982 song "Down Under," the country's unofficial anthem, from the children's song "Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree" which was written by teacher Marion Sinclair for the Girl Guides in 1935. Sinclair died in 1988, and publishing company Larrikin Music sued in 2009 over the song. On Feb. 25, the band's record company, EMI, appealed the decision. On July 6, a judge ordered EMI, and songwriters Colin Hay and Ron Strykert, to pay five per cent of royalties earned from the song since 2002 and from its future earnings. EMI appealed again. On Oct. 7, 2011, the band lost their final court bid to prove they did not steal the distinctive flute riff.

Happy Birthday Ron "Opie" Howard 3.1.1954

Stones kind of conection:
Opie gets asked to join a rock and roll band and they take to practicing in the Taylors' garage. Andy isn't too concerned about it all and is happy for the boys when they get their first gig, playing at a friend's birthday party. Soon however, Opie's attitude and behavior begins to chance. The band becomes all-consuming and he is staying out late in the evenings. When he begins to fail tests and assignments at school, Andy decides the time has come to lay down the law. Aunt Bee thinks that they should ask Clara Edwards to have a chat with Opie but Andy is convinced that it will only make matters worse. Aunt Bee goes ahead anyways and Clara's talk has surprising results.

And Of Course

On a whim I typed in Uranus and The Rolling Stones  here is what I got:
Sir William Herschel announced its discovery on March 13, 1781, expanding the known boundaries of the Solar System for the first time in modern history. Uranus was also the first planet discovered with a telescope.

The connection:
The Rolling Stones'
Keith Richards & Brian Jones:
"I Can't Get No Satisfaction"
Recurrence Transits
and the Mars-Uranus Conjunction

by Nick Dagan Best

Mars - Mars has an aggressive or divisive character and, among other things, represents a masculine principle (i.e. male individuals, groups of men, etc).
Uranus – Uranus has a destabilizing character, and is associated with qualities or subjects like rebellious or generally extreme behavior, inspired flashes of brilliance, very sudden changes in circumstances, and modern technology.
Conjunction – Two planets or more in a given sign can be said to be conjunct, but the term is generally used for when they are joined at the same degree, or relatively close, as it is in this article. The significations of any two or more conjunct planets are “blended” and grouped as a singular astrological force.
In early 1965, the Rolling Stones had been together for almost three years. They started off as a rhythm & blues band, playing cover versions of old standards by people like Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters - whose song Mannish Boy featured the line “like a rolling stone”, from which the group derived its name. However, on the heels of the Beatles’ international success, the Stones’ manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, was pressuring guitarist Keith Richards and singer Mick Jagger to write their own material, in the more contemporary pop style of the time.
The band’s other guitarist, Brian Jones, a talented multi-instrumentalist and “blues purist”, was desperately fighting to maintain the group’s style to its traditional format. He had been the group’s original leader, but his lack of songwriting skills and unreliable behavior on tour had gradually robbed him of his influence. With Richards and Jagger now in charge, the group was having relative success with original compositions like The Last Time, though they still had not had a number one hit in America.
Sometime during the night of May 6th/7th – during the course of an American tour - Richards woke up in his motel room in Clearwater FL with a distinctive three-note “riff” (melody) in his head. He quickly played the tune into a tape recorder he kept by his bed and then went back to sleep. The next day, he played the riff for Jagger, telling him, “The line that goes with this (tune) is ‘I can’t get no satisfaction’”. Jagger completed the lyrics within the next two days, and the soon-to-be classic song was recorded at RCA Studios in Hollywood on May 11th.
Richards had originally intended his riff to be played by horns, but wound up playing it himself on the guitar, with the use of a “fuzz” effect created by a new gadget that happened to be around. This piece of equipment was among the first of its kind, and its inclusion on the recording introduced a whole new sound for the electric guitar. Today, such gadgets are standard tools for most rock guitarists. The resulting song – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction - was released as a single on June 4th, and hit number one on the U.S. pop charts on July 10th, remaining there for the next four weeks. The Stones had finally hit the big time in America.
Curiously, sometime during the same week of May 7-11 (most likely around the 8th), Jones fell completely from grace in the eyes of his band mates. Having already fathered a number of illegitimate children by the time he was in his early 20s, Jones was also known to be physically abusive with women. 

One night after a concert, he brought a young girl back to his hotel room. When she emerged the next morning –crying, bruised and sporting two black eyes – his indignant band mates cut him off socially, even sanctioning his beating by one of their roadies for his serious offence, from which he sustained two broken ribs. Although he would remain in the group until a month before his death in 1969, Jones’ influence in the group was now completely diminished and he spent the rest of his life slowly wasting away.

Sing Me Back Home
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MTFwvMzH-0
I think Mick listens to Merle or at least I think it was reported he listen to him alot once!

I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station
And the preacher said "You know, you always have the Lord by your side"
And I was so pleased to be informed of this
That I ran 20 red lights in his honor
Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord

And I had an arrangement to meet a girl and I was kind of late
And I thought by the time I got there she'd be off
She'd be off with the nearest truck driver she could find
Much to my surprise, there she was sitting in the corner
A little bleary, worse for wear and tear
Was a girl with far away eyes

But I'll tell you

So if you're down on your luck and you can't harmonize (I know you all sympathize)
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you're downright disgusted and life ain't worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes

Well

Well the preacher kept right on saying that all I had to do was
Send 10 dollars to the Church of the Sacred Bleeding Heart of Jesus
Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California
And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio and all my dreams would come true
So I did
The next week, I got a prayer
For the girl - well, you know what kind of eyes she got

So if you're down on your luck, I know you all sympathize
Get a girl with far away eyes
 
Now , Blow out the Candles Hag! I love you........Sorry I missed your day!

April 16th 1964

The Rolling Stones is the debut album by The Rolling Stones, released by Decca Records in the UK on 16 April 1964.
Recorded at Regent Sound Studios in London over the course of five days in January and February 1964, The Rolling Stones was produced by then-managers Andrew Loog Oldham and Eric Easton. The Rolling Stones was originally released by Decca Records in the UK, while the US England's Newest Hit Makers appeared on the London Records label, with the track "Not Fade Away" (the a-side of the band's third UK single) replacing "Mona (I Need You Baby)".[2]
The majority of the tracks reflect the band's love for R&B. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (whose professional name until 1978 omitted the "s" in his surname) were fledgling songwriters during early 1964, contributing only one original composition to the album: "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)". Two numbers are credited to "Nanker Phelge" - a pseudonym the band used for group compositions from 1963 to 1965. Phil Spector and Gene Pitney both contributed to the recording sessions, and are referred to as "Uncle Phil and Uncle Gene" in the subtitle of the Phelge instrumental "Now I've Got a Witness."
The album cover photo was taken by Nicholas Wright. The cover bears no title or identifying information other than the photo and the Decca logo - an "unheard of" design concept originated by manager Andrew Oldham.[3][4]
Upon its release, The Rolling Stones became one of 1964's biggest sellers in the UK, staying at #1 for 12 weeks.
AND
The Rolling Stones' 1965 2nd European Tour was the first concert tour of France by the band. The tour commenced on April 16 and concluded on April 18, 1965.

April  17th 1934 Don Kirshner  Jan 12th 2011


Rolling Stones Connections:


http://www.donkirshner.com/the-rolling-stones-on-don-kirshners-rock-concert/
In the fall of 1973, music producer Don Kirshner launched his own syndicated rock and roll television show on ABC.  On September 27, 1973, Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert premiered with an unforgettable performance by The Rolling Stones.
By the early 1970’s, The Rolling Stones had recorded the albums Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main St. and Goats Head Soup which included some of the band’s biggest hit songs like “Brown Sugar” and “Angie”.  These albums consistently topped the US and UK charts.  The band was also facing legal battles concerning drug use, which made for an interesting international touring schedule as they were denied permission to play in a couple of countries.  With great music and controversy swirling around them, The Rolling Stones were one of the hottest rock ’n roll bands at this time.
Don Kirshner knew that his new rock series had to start off with a bang and The Rolling Stones was the band to help him do it.  The opening show featured a London performance by The Rolling Stones – their first appearance on American television in over four years!
On that episode of Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, The Rolling Stones performed an unforgettable and emotive version of “Angie” and the the rock series was off and running.  Over the show’s 8 year run, The Rolling Stones appeared on Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert five times performing their hit songs Start Me Up, Angie, Silver Train, Dancin with Mr. D, Till The Next Goodbye, It’s Only Rock ‘N Roll (But I Like It), Ain’t Too Proud To Beg, All Down The Line, Bye Bye Johnnie, Love In Vain, Emotional Rescue and She’s So Cold.
It was a perfect match – one of the most epic bands in rock history on one of the greatest rock shows in television history.

April 17
April 17th 1967

The Rolling Stones' 1967 European Tour was a concert tour by the band to promote their new album Between The Buttons and new single Lets Spend The Night Together and Ruby Tuesday. The tour commenced on March 25 and concluded on April 17, 1967. It was the last Rolling Stones concert tour to include Brian Jones who initially formed and named the band.
This tour would also be the first time a rock band from the Western Hemisphere would play behind the Iron Curtain when on April 13 they played two shows at the Palace of Culture and Science building in Warsaw, Poland. The tickets to the concert were given out by the Communist Party much to the bands dismay. The people who did attend were told to behave accordingly during the concert or they would be removed from the venue. After the concerts, the band drove down the streets distributing their records to fans. Visiting Soviet officials were not pleased by the Rolling Stones performance and it would be a long while before the Stones would return to the soviet-bloc nations.
"They thought the show was so awful, so decadent, that they said this would never happen in Moscow,"-- Mick Jagger.

We should all bow our heads and say a prayer today....

In the early morning hours of May 7, 1965, in a Clearwater, Florida, motel room, a bleary-eyed Keith Richards awoke, grabbed a tape recorder and laid down one of the greatest pop hooks of all time: The opening riff of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." He then promptly fell back to sleep.

"When I woke up in the morning, the tape had run out," Richards recalled many years later. "I put it back on, and there's this, maybe, 30 seconds of 'Satisfaction,' in a very drowsy sort of rendition. And then it suddenly—the guitar goes 'CLANG," and then there's like 45 minutes of snoring." It wasn't much to go on, but he played it for Mick Jagger later that same day. "He only had the first bit, and then he had the riff," Jagger recalls. "It sounded like a country sort of thing on acoustic guitar—it didn't sound like rock. But he didn't really like it, he thought it was a joke... He really didn't think it was single material, and we all said 'You're off your head.' Which he was, of course."

With verses written by Jagger—Richards had already come up with the line "I can't get no satisfaction"—the Stones took the song into the Chess studios in Chicago just three days later, on May 10, 1965, and completed it on May 12 after a flight to Los Angeles and an 18-hour recording session at RCA. It was there that Richards hooked up an early Gibson version of a fuzz box to his guitar and gave a riff he'd initially envisioned being played by horns its distinctive, iconic sound

Though the Stones at the time were already midway through their third U.S. tour, their only bona fide American hits to date were "Time Is On My Side" and the recently released "The Last Time." "Satisfaction" was the song that would catapult them to superstar status. Forty years later, when Rolling Stone magazine ranked "Satisfaction" #2 on its list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time," it put the following historical perspective on the riff Keith Richards discovered on this day in 1965: "That spark in the night...was the crossroads: the point at which the rickety jump and puppy love of early rock and roll became rock."

On this date in 1963, right after signing their deal with Decca Records, The Rolling Stones entered London’s Olympic Sound Studios to track its first single, a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On." The single came out in the U.K. on June 7 and went to No. 21 on the U.K. charts, allowing them to begin playing shows outside of London. The band's singles steadily performed better in the U.K. — the second one, "I Wanna Be Your Man" (a Beatles cover) made it to No. 12 and their cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" went to No. 3 (it was their first U.S. chart single, as well, reaching No. 48). In early 1964, the band had its first No. 1 single (in the U.K.) with another cover, Bobby and Shirley Womack's "It's All Over Now."


The first original song by the Stones to make it to No. 1 didn't come until 1965's "The Last Time." Later in ’65 the Stones released "Satisfaction", which signaled the coming of a legendary, enduring band — it reached No. 1 in countries across the globe. 50 years after forming, the Stones are still rocking. They ended up doing pretty OK for themselves.

THE ROLLING STONES ‘EXILE ON MAIN STREET’ TURNS 40
by: Dave Lifton 1 hour ago


Universal

The sprawling double album is a dangerous undertaking in rock because the possibility for overload is too great. Even the biggest fans of, say, the Beatles or Bruce Springsteen will admit that ‘The Beatles’ or ‘The River’ could have been better as a single album with the fat trimmed. However, the Rolling Stones‘ ‘Exile on Main Street,’ which was released 40 years ago today, not only doesn’t suffer from a lack of filler, but it’s length is actually one of its selling points.

Always influenced by American music, ‘Exile’ saw the Stones going deeper into country (‘Torn and Frayed’), folk (‘Sweet Black Angel’) and even gospel (‘I Just Want to See His Face’). They didn’t abandon the blues — they covered Slim Harpo’s ‘Shake Your Hips’ and Robert Johnson’s ‘Stop Breaking Down’ with gusto — so expanding ‘Exile’ allowed them the explore some of those musical ideas in greater depth than they had previously done.

And, of course, there was still plenty of time for some straightforward rock n’ roll, too. ‘Tumbling Dice’ and ‘Happy’ were Top 40 hits, but ‘All Down the Line’ also gets some radio airplay. ‘Exile also kicks off with one of the great one-two punches in rock history — ‘Rocks Off’ and ‘Rip This Joint.’

The most incredible fact about ‘Exile’ is that it even got made. In 1971 the band were forced to leave England due to tax issues. Most of the band moved to the south of France, while Mick Jagger stayed in Paris to be with his new wife, Bianca. The Stones’ mobile studio set up shop outside Keith Richards‘ villa, Nellcote, and the band went to work.

Sort of. The work they did wasn’t always on the album. Nellcote turned into a constant party with plenty of friends and hangers-on with occasional bouts of recording whenever enough members would show up and were capable of playing their instruments. Even though the recording was being done in his house, Keith Richards, whose heroin addiction had recently taken hold, was rarely in a condition to lead the sessions. Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman don’t even play on several songs.

By December, the sessions moved to Los Angeles for overdubs and some new tracks. With Jagger around more, he was able to take control and see the project to completion in time for its release on May 12, 1972.

But it’s the decadence of the basement at Nellcote, which will soon be the subject of a film, that is found within ‘Exile’s’ grooves. Its murkiness, with Jagger’s vocals further down in the mix than usual, can make it impenetrable on first few listens, but eventually its brilliance sinks in as you peel back the layers and discover everything underneath. Later reissues, most recently in 2010, have improved the sound with state-of-the-art technology, but kept the mystery intact.

So if the May sunshine bores the daylights out of you today, crank up your copy of ‘Exile on Main Street,’ be it vinyl, CD or mp3. You’re bound to hear something within that you’ve never noticed before..


Now... blow out the candles and the joints

1966, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The Who grew tired of waiting for John Entwistle and Keith Moon to arrive for their gig at the Ricky Tick Club in Windsor, England, so they took to the stage with the bass player and drummer of the local band that opened the show. When Moon and Entwistle finally arrived in the middle of the set, a fight broke out, with Townshend hitting Moon on the head with his guitar. Moon and Entwistle quit the band (and rejoined a week later).

On this date in 1976, the Stones played the first of four consecutive nights at the Pavillon de Paris, a converted slaughterhouse in the city's La Villette district known to most people as "Les Abattoirs". The shows were taped by the Stones Mobile Recording Unit for use on the following year's "Love You Live" album and filmed by Freddie Hausser for a TV broadcast titled "Les Stones Aux Abattoirs". Most of the songs broadcast come from the third and fourth shows, but this version of "Angie" dates from the opening night.

40 YEARS AGO: THE ROLLING STONES’ ‘STAR STAR’ GETS BANNED BY THE BBC
by Dave Lifton September 10, 2013 11:57 AM


Fin Costello, Getty Images

On Sept. 10, 1973, the Rolling Stones broke a 10-year history of clean, upstanding living when the BBC announced that ‘Star Star,’ a song off their then-new album ‘Goats Head Soup,’ was banned on account of its obscene lyrics.

The Chuck Berry-styled rocker deals with a woman for whom Mick Jagger is just another celebrity notch on her presumably rhinestone-studded belt. Written as “Starf—er,’ its name was changed at the behest of Atlantic Records chief Ahmet Ertegun. However, the chorus, which features Jagger repeatedly calling the woman by the slur in the original title.

As if the lyrics weren’t direct enough, Jagger drove the point home in concert. During the performance of that song on the 1975 tour, a giant inflatable penis would appear on the stage, which Jagger would ride.

Another source of controversy was in the final verse, where Jagger hears rumors about her sexual activity with actor Steve McQueen, and that she had her eyes set on Hollywood legend John Wayne. Perhaps the latter was a bit too iconoclastic. In the live version from 1978 embedded below, Jagger changes the lyric to take a shot at a fellow rocker. “Jimmy Page / Was quite a rage / I could not see the reason why.”

Despite being banned by the BBC, it was nonetheless released as a single in more permissive European countries like Germany and France.

September 16th 1977 - Marc Bolan, rock vocalist/guitarist (T Rex), dies in a car crash at 29
From The Indepentdent
http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/mystery-of-marc-bolans-death-solved-8142457.html
Mystery of Marc Bolan's death solved
On the 35th anniversary of the glam rock star's death in a car accident, an eyewitness reveals what happened
The death of Marc Bolan has its own legend. Fans from around the world have converged on the tree in south-west London where the glam rock star drew his last breath 35 years ago today. Now, however, it has been revealed the legend was wrong.

For the first time, an eyewitness to the devastation of the car crash that killed the rock star tells her story to a national newspaper. Vicky Aram, 77, a former nightclub singer, was invited back from a party by Bolan, his girlfriend Gloria Jones and Jones's brother Richard to discuss musical projects. Following them in a separate car, Ms Aram was at the scene seconds after the impact.

It was thought Bolan was killed when his car hit the now much-beribboned sycamore tree. He was, in fact, killed when his Mini hit a steel-reinforced fence post. Where previously he had been thought to have been crushed to death in the car, a new book reveals he suffered a horrific head injury from an eye bolt in the fence. The book also reveals that the tree so despised by fans actually prevented the car from sliding down an embankment and causing an even worse tragedy.

The revelations come in a new biography, published this weekend, Ride a White Swan: The Lives and Death of Marc Bolan written by the journalist Lesley-Ann Jones.

Speaking to The Independent on Sunday this weekend, Ms Aram described how she was driving just seconds behind Bolan on the ill-fated night: "As I came over the bridge with Richard [Jones] beside me, I can still in my mind see, so clearly, a purple car which looked like a little beetle. It was upright and it was smoking and there was a tiny glimmer of light from the moon, the night was so still."

The "little beetle" was the Mini driven by Gloria Jones. Ms Aram said she didn't immediately stop at the car but drove a few metres past it.

"I said 'we've got to get them out, this car might blow up'. I took my mother's rug from the back of my car and put it on the ground. Some of the fans are comforted by the fact he was laid on a nice lady's rug. I don't think Richard thought Marc was dead, but I knew he was. Gloria was groaning and almost conscious. But Richard cried and said 'please don't leave me'." In an eerie parallel with Bolan's death, Ms Aram said she crashed into a tree on the way to give evidence at Bolan's inquest a month later.

At the height of his fame in the early to mid-1970s, Bolan – born Mark Feld – outsold Jimi Hendrix and The Who with his band T Rex. But his good looks, catchy songs, air of mystique and untimely death at the age of 29 meant interest in the star has never waned.

Fee Warner, founder of the T Rex Action Group, bought the land where the sycamore tree stands to stop it from being felled. She and volunteers preserve the shrine dedicated to Bolan. Ms Warner, 53, said: "A lot of people don't realise there was a fence between the tree and the road, because the fence was removed. When we came to build some steps, we found that when they had taken the fences away, they had taken away the ones that were undamaged, but the damaged ones had become buried on the site. That explains something which I have never been able to understand: why the damage to the tree is far higher than anything a Mini could have done."

The long lines started to form shortly after 8 a.m. Friday, September 25, 1981 when area radio stations announced tickets were on sale at Texas Stadium for the Rolling Stones concert October 31 at the Cotton Bowl.  Two well-know Texas bands, ZZ Top and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, also will perform.

I hate to break the fun, but it was The Beatles who got The Stones to write songs, I mean we all love The Stones but in reality The Stones were a Rhythm & Blues band exclusivity & The Beatles had a talent for songwriting pop songs or songs that even the Grandma's could like.

Very influential, very important, and then slowly lost it -- highly intelligent -- and just kind of wasted it and blew it all away."

25 Years Ago: Bill Wyman Marries 18-Year-Old Mandy Smith
by Ken KelleyJune 2, 2014 12:02 PM





Bill Wyman spent almost three decades as the bassist for the Rolling Stones before leaving the group in the early-’90s, playing on their most celebrated albums and songs. Suffice to say that he never generated as many headlines for his mastery of the bass as he did when the-then 52-year old Wyman married 18-year old Mandy Smith on June 2, 1989.

‘It was kept from the press and strangers, of course,” Smith said in a 2010 interview. “For the first couple of years, I had to lie. If we were out in a club, I’d have to say I was doing a secretarial course. When it actually came out, I was 16, so I suppose it wasn’t as bad. Although it was still bad. All hell broke loose.”

It was reportedly at London’s Lyceum Ballroom where Wyman first laid eyes on Smith. She was 13 years old at the time; Wyman was 47. Wyman said that Smith made him feel as though he had been “whacked over the head with a hammer.”

Wyman helped Smith find work as a professional model. The two began spending time together, which led to dating. Despite the obvious age difference and Wyman’s reputation as being a serial womanizer, Smith’s mother reportedly supported the relationship.

The couple kept their relationship a secret for two-and-a-half years before making it official in a civil ceremony, then going on Terry Wogan’s television show shortly after. It was Wyman’s second marriage. His first, to Diane Cory, ended in 1969 after 10 years together.

Not long after the wedding bells had rung for Smith and Wyman, the wheels began coming off of the marriage. Smith’s mother reportedly joined the newlyweds on their honeymoon, and the scrutiny cast upon the couple was undoubtedly tough as well. They separated in 1991 and the divorce was finalized two years later, with Smith receiving a £580,000 payout.

For his part, Wyman defended his relationship with Smith, stating, “It was very emotional and special at the time. It wasn’t how it was reported to be and it was the only time it ever  happened in my life. A lot of people understood, but a lot didn’t, and the media certainly didn’t. They treated me like crap.”

Bill Wyman’s current spouse Suzanne Accosta and their three children are understandably not fond of bringing up Wyman’s marriage to Smith. However, the spotlight was cast upon the unlikely couple again in March 2013 after Smith claimed that she and Wyman had sex when she was 14 years old. Her sister responded by calling for the former Stone to be prosecuted. Wyman reportedly approached police over the claims that he had sex with a minor but was told police were not interested in speaking with him.

“I went to the police and I went to the public prosecutor and said, ‘Do you want to talk to me? Do you want to meet up with me, or anything like that?’ and I got a message back, ‘No,’” Wyman said. “I was totally open about it.”

These days, Wyman is still enjoying being retired from the Stones, although he did return to the stage in London in November 2012 to perform with the band. Last May, Wyman vowed that such a reunion would not happen again, voicing his disappointment regarding his limited stage time with the group during the aforementioned London show.

Mandy Smith turns 44 this year. In her 2010 interview with the Daily Mail, Smith shared that she was born-again in 2005, claiming her rediscovery of religion played a part in saving her life. “God is the only man in my life now,” Smith said.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Wyman and Smith are no longer in contact with each other. But just prior to the couple being divorced in 1993, things between the Wyman and Smith families took a bit of a left turn when Bill Wyman’s oldest son Stephen announced his engagement to Mandy Smith’s mother, Patsy. That couple’s marriage reportedly lasted two years, until their divorce in 1995

Today in Music History for Jan. 17:

In 1927, sultry nightclub singer Eartha Kitt was born in Columbia, S.C. Her real birth date wasn't known until 1997, when students at Benedict College in Columbia tracked down her birth certificate. She had picked her own birth date, Jan. 26, because she was adopted at age six when her mother died and did not know her father. She began her professional career in the troupe of famed dancer Katherine Dunham, with whom Kitt toured Europe and Mexico. Within a year, she was headlining at top European clubs with her singing and dancing. She also starred in three films in France. She returned to the U.S. in the early 1950s, playing such famous nightspots as the Village Vanguard in New York and the Mocambo in Los Angeles. She is best known for her 1953 recordings of "C'est Si Bon" and "Santa Baby." She died on Dec. 25, 2008.

In 1946, rock guitarist Domenic Troiano was born in Modugno, Italy, and became a naturalized Canadian in 1955. He catapulted to the top of the Canadian music scene in the 1960s, his impressive skill with the guitar landing him integral roles with bands such as "The Mandala," "Bush," "The James Gang" and "The Guess Who." It was dedication to his craft that earned him a spot in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and inspired many of Canada's musicians. He died on May 25, 2005 after a 10-year battle with cancer.

In 1948, Mick Taylor, one of the great slide guitarists in rock music, was born in Welwyn Garden City, England. He left school at 15 and taught himself guitar, playing in a local group called "The Gods." Taylor sat in for Eric Clapton when Clapton missed a gig with "John Mayall's Bluesbreakers." Taylor later joined Mayall's group when Clapton left permanently. Taylor's playing on John Mayall's "Bare Wires" album led to him being selected to replace the deceased Brian Jones in "The Rolling Stones" in 1969. His highlight with "The Stones" is the album "Exile on Main Street." Mick Taylor left "The Stones" in 1974, played briefly with a band led by Jack Bruce, then began a solo career in '79.

In 1965, "The Rolling Stones" recorded "The Last Time" and "Play With Fire" in Los Angeles.

In 1966, Simon and Garfunkel released "Sounds of Silence."

In 1970, soul singer Billy Stewart and three members of his band died in a car accident in North Carolina. Stewart, who was only 32 when he died, had started as a member of "The Rainbows," who had a hit in 1955 with "Mary Lee." Also in the group with Stewart were future stars Marvin Gaye and Don Covay. Billy Stewart had 11 records that made the Billboard Hot 100 chart. His biggest hit was "Summertime," which made the top-10 in 1966.

In 1972, Elvis Presley Boulevard was dedicated in Memphis, Tenn. It was formerly part of Highway 51 South. The boulevard runs in front of Graceland.

In 1974, Dean Martin's son Dino, of "Dino, Desi and Billy," was arrested after police claimed he had attempted to sell a machinegun to an undercover agent. He was released on bail the next day.

In 1977, "The Marshall Tucker Band" and "The Charlie Daniels Band" headlined a benefit concert for Scooter Herring, an ex-roadie for "The Allman Brothers Band." Herring was facing a cocaine trafficking conviction based, in part, on testimony from Greg Allman. It was Allman's move to give evidence that caused the break-up of "The Allman Brothers Band." Herring was sentenced to 75 years in prison.

In 1979, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton announced they would record together. They didn't get around to it until 1986. The result was the best-selling "Trio" album.

In 1981, heavy metal rockers "Motley Crue" performed together for the first time.

In 1985, the groups "Alabama" and "The Commodores" received achievement awards from Alabama Governor George Wallace.

In 1986, Apple Computers made a $200,000 donation to charity as the price for getting "Huey Lewis and the News" to play at the company's 10th anniversary party.

In 1989, Chuck Berry sued "High Society" magazine for $10 million after it published nude photographs of him. Berry said the photos were stolen from his office in St. Louis. He told reporters he had taken photos of himself and his female companions over the past 30 years in case the women tried to defame him.

In 1990, "The Four Seasons," "The Four Tops," "The Kinks," "The Platters," "Simon and Garfunkel" and "The Who" were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In 1993, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Washington for a free outdoor concert that was staged as part of the Presidential inaugural festivities. Performers included Michael Bolton and Aretha Franklin.

In 1994, two former child stars -- Donny Osmond and Danny Bonaduce of "The Partridge Family" -- slugged it out in a three-round charity boxing match in Chicago. The winner was Bonaduce, who bloodied Osmond's nose in the 2-1 decision. The match was set up after Osmond taunted Bonaduce at the gym where both men were working out.

In 1996, "Pink Floyd," David Bowie, "Gladys Knight and the Pips," "Jefferson Airplane," "The Shirelles," "Little Willie John and the Velvet Underground" were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In 1997, Cliffie Stone, the country music executive credited with discovering Tennessee Ernie Ford, died at his home in Santa Clarita, Calif. He was 80. Stone was a pioneer in country music on the U.S. West Coast and his "Hometown Jamboree" radio and TV show was instrumental in developing the careers of Ford, Johnny Cash, Eddy Arnold, Jim Reeves and other country stars. From 1946 on, Stone was in charge of country music at Capitol Records and among those he signed to the label were Ford, Tex Williams, Hank Thompson and Merle Travis.

In 2001, "Metallica" announced bassist Jason Newsted had quit.

In 2011, Hamilton's Rita Chiarelli won the Blues With a Feeling Award for lifetime achievement at the Maple Blues Awards, while fellow Hamilton native Richard Newell — a.k.a. King Biscuit Boy — was recognized posthumously with a special lifetime achievement award as well. He died in 2003.

In 2011, rock promoter Don Kirshner, the man "Time" magazine once dubbed the "Man With the Golden Ear," died of heart failure at a Florida hospital where he was being treated for an infection. He was 76. He was behind the TV show "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" in 1972, and gave national exposure to musicians including Billy Joel and "The Police." He also boosted the careers of comics, including Billy Crystal, Arsenio Hall and David Letterman.

In 2012, Johnny Otis, who made the 1958 R&B classic "Willie and the Hand Jive" and evangelized black music to white audiences as a bandleader and radio host, died in California at 90. He also wrote "Every Beat of My Heart," which was a hit for Gladys Knight and the Pips, and discovered such R&B artists such as Etta James and Big Mama Thornton.

Wrong year, it's not 1948, it's 1949, I'm sure he told me that in person when I booked him to play here

The origin of the wrong year was a British magazine in 1969 in a note about the Hyde Park show, since then a lot of sources have the wrong year

Today in Music History for Feb. 24:

In 1897, Emile Berliner took out a Canadian patent on his gramophone talking machine. Manufacturing facilities were set up in Montreal. Berliner had built a crude model of his machine 10 years earlier at his home laboratory in Washington, D.C., and he applied for a U.S. patent on Sept. 26, 1887. Today the terms "gramophone" and "phonograph" mean the same thing. But in Berliner's day this was not so. "Gramophone" referred to a talking machine employing lateral-cut discs, while the "phonograph," invented by Thomas Edison, used vertical-cut cylinders. Berliner's discs eventually made Edison's cylinders obsolete.

In 1944, Nicky Hopkins, one of the foremost studio keyboard players in rock music, was born in London. He got his start with "Screamin' Lord Sutch's Savages" and "The Cyril Davies R&B All-Stars" -- two groups which included many soon-to-be-famous musicians. In 1964, Hopkins began working as a sessions player, recording with "The Beatles," "The Rolling Stones," "The Who" and other British bands. Hopkins was later a member of "The Jeff Beck Group" and "Quicksilver Messenger Service." He toured with "The Rolling Stones" in 1972. He was with the group "Night" for their 1979 hit single, "Hot Summer Nights." He died on Sept. 6, 1994, in Nashville of complications from abdominal and heart ailments.

In 1956, Cleveland, now the home of the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, invoked a 1931 law barring people under 18 from dancing publicly without an adult guardian.

In 1964, the Canadian music industry magazine "RPM" began publication in Toronto. "RPM" and its publisher, Walt Grealis, were major lobbyists for the Canadian content regulations imposed upon radio stations by the CRTC "RPM" also began the RPM Gold Leaf Awards in 1964 to honour Canadian talent. These awards later became known as the Junos, after then-CRTC chairman Pierre Juneau.

In 1969, "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" played their last concert at London's Royal Albert Hall. After the "Experience" broke up, Hendrix formed "Band of Gypsies."

In 1969, Johnny Cash recorded his second live prison performance, this one at San Quentin. It followed a concert the previous year at Folsom Prison. The LP "Johnny Cash at San Quentin" topped the Billboard pop and country charts.

In 1976, the "Eagles" "Greatest Hits" became the first LP in the U.S. to be certified platinum -- one-million copies sold.

In 1979, the "Sex Pistols" released the album "The Great Rock N' Roll Swindle."

In 1985, rock singer David Crosby bolted from a drug treatment centre during his first supervised exercise period. He was recaptured the next day.

In 1986, "The Rolling Stones" played a private gig at London's 100 Club in memory of pianist and sometime group member Ian Stewart, who had recently died.

In 1987, a spokeswoman for bandleader Lawrence Welk said some Welk fans who bought his "Polka Party" compact disc ended up with the punk rock soundtrack to the movie "Sid and Nancy." The CD's apparently were mislabelled at the factory in Japan.

In 1988, Peter Chatman, the blues pianist known as "Memphis Slim," died in Paris at the age of 72. Chatman wrote the standard "Every Day I Have the Blues," and helped spread blues music throughout the world.

In 1990, 1950s balladeer Johnnie Ray died in Los Angeles of liver failure at 63. He's known for his double-sided hit "Cry" and "The Little White Cloud That Cried."

In 1991, Webb Pierce, one of the biggest country stars of the 1950s and early '60s, died in Nashville at age 65.

In 1992, it was a marriage of lead vocalists as "Nirvana's" Kurt Cobain wed "Hole's" Courtney Love on a cliff overlooking a beach in Waikiki.

In 1992, Paula Abdul performed before 6,000 people in Guangzhou -- formerly Canton -- China, even though Chinese authorities had banned her album "Spellbound" for being too sexy.

In 1993, British rock legend Eric Clapton, who had been virtually ignored in the Grammy Awards for most of his career, won six Grammys, including the music industry's three major awards -- record, album and song of the year. Clapton was honoured for his album "Unplugged," and the song "Tears in Heaven." Clapton wrote it as a tribute to his young son Conor, who died in 1991 at the age of four when he fell out a window of Clapton's 53rd floor New York apartment.

In 1994, Dinah Shore, star of radio, TV, records and movies, died in Beverly Hills, Calif., of cancer. She was 76.

In 1998, Elton John became Sir Elton when he was knighted at Buckingham Palace by the Queen. John's recording of "Candle in the Wind 1997," the song he sang at Princess Diana's funeral in September of that year, had sold more than 35 million copies. John donated all proceeds to the Diana, Princess of Wales memorial fund.

In 1998, drummer Tommy Lee of "Motley Crue" was arrested for kicking his wife, actress Pamela Anderson Lee. She filed for divorce. He eventually served four months in prison.

In 1999, three Canadian singers won awards at the Grammys in Los Angeles. Celine Dion won best female pop vocal and record of the year for "My Heart Will Go On," Shania Twain won best country song and best country vocal performance for "You're Still the One" and Alanis Morissette took the best rock song award for "Uninvited."

In 1999, also at the Grammys, Lauryn Hill won five awards, including album of the year and best new artist, on the strength of her solo debut album, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."

In 2009, the "Barenaked Ladies" announced on their website that co-lead singer Steven Page had left the band to pursue solo projects including theatrical opportunities. Page had been the signature voice for the band, performing on hits including "One Week," "Brian Wilson," "If I Had $1,000,000" and "Jane." The news came months after drug charges against Page were dropped in the U.S.

In 2011, Suze Rotolo, the girl arm-in-arm with Bob Dylan on the 1963 album cover of "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan," died of lung cancer in New York at age 67. She was Dylan's girlfriend for three years and is credited with inspiring him to inject politics into his music.

In 2012, unable to fulfill a Facebook campaign to be his date to his June prom, country music crossover starlett Taylor Swift invited 18-year-old leukemia sufferer Kevin McGuire to be her date to the ACM award show in Las Vegas on April 1. He accepted.

In 2013, Adele won the Oscar for best original song for co-writing "Skyfall" (with Paul Epworth), a first for a James Bond theme song. Toronto composer Mychael Danna won best original score for his work on "Life of Pi." Anne Hathway won best supporting actress as Fantine in the movie musical "Les Miserables." Also, a film about a musician won best documentary, "Searching for Sugar Man," about Detroit singer-songwriter Rodriguez.

Today in Music History for March 4:


In 1678, composer Antonio Vivaldi was born.

In 1948, Chris Squire, bass player with the group "Yes," was born in London. One of the most successful progressive rock bands of the 1970s, the group was hated by the critics and loved by the audiences. "The Yes Album," "Fragile" and "Close to the Edge" were all certified gold. "Yes" broke up in 1980 but reformed again in 1983. Chris Squire recorded a solo album, "Fish Out of Water," in 1975.

In 1966, musician John Lennon touched off an international protest when he was quoted in the London Evening Standard as saying "The Beatles" were "more popular than Jesus Christ." When the quote was widely reported in North America several months later, some protesters burned their "Beatles" records. Lennon later apologized for the remark. In April, 2010 the Vatican forgave Lennon, saying it was a thing of the past.

In 1966, "The Who" released the single "Substitute" on producer Robert Stigwood's Reaction Records in violation of their current deal with Brunswick Records in Britain.

Today in Music History - Aug. 24

The Canadian Press

Mon, 24 Aug 2015



Today in Music History for Aug. 24:

In 1841, cellist Henri Billet, who may well have been the first Russian musician to visit Canada, appeared at the Theatre royal in Quebec City.

In 1860, 250 singers from "The Montreal Musical Union," an orchestra and soloists performed the "Cantata in Honour of the Prince of Wales" on occasion of the prince's visit to Montreal. The work was written by Montreal resident Charles Wugk Sabatier.

In 1956, people waited outside for hours before the opening of London's first rock club, Studio 51.

In 1960, Stevie Wonder was the first musician to reach No. 1 one on the pop and R&B charts with “Fingertips, Part 2” and No. 1 on the album chart with "The 12-Year-Old Genius."

In 1965, "The Rolling Stones" met their future manager, Allen Klein, for the first time at a hotel in London. Less than two years later, he was running "The Stones'" business affairs. In 1969, Klein was hired by "The Beatles" to try to sort the financial mess at their Apple Corps Ltd.

In 1967, "The Beatles" saw the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi lecture for the first time at the Park Lane Hilton Hotel in London. At a private meeting following the lecture, the Maharishi accepted "The Beatles" as his disciples and invited them to a spiritual regeneration which he would conduct two days later in North Wales. "The Beatles," along with "Rolling Stone" Mick Jagger and his girlfriend Marianne Faithfull, attended.

In 1968, three members of "Country Joe and the Fish" were assaulted in a hotel elevator in Chicago by Vietnam veterans, who asked the group, "Don't you like America?" The band was in Chicago to perform for protesters outside the Democratic National Convention.

In 1968, drummer Keith Moon of "The Who" drove a Lincoln into the swimming pool of a hotel in Flint, Mich.

In 1970, the Saskatchewan Centre of the Arts officially opened in Regina. The centre is the home of the Regina Symphony Orchestra.

In 1976, Arista Records announced the signing of British folk-rock singer Al Stewart. He had just had a hit on Columbia with "The Year of the Cat," and the label switch prompted a complicated lawsuit.

In 1978, trumpeter-singer-bandleader Louis Prima died in New Orleans at age 66. He'd been in a coma since brain surgery in 1975. Prima's novelty hits in the 1940s included "Bell-Bottom Trousers" and "Oh, Babe." Prima provided the voice of an orangutan in Disney's 1969 animated feature "The Jungle Book."

In 1979, the new wave group "The Cars" played for 500,000 people in New York's Central Park.

In 1980, Stevie Wonder played a $100-ticket fundraiser at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles to raise money for the family of Eula Love, who was killed by police in a dispute over her gas bill.

In 1981, Mark David Chapman was sentenced in New York to 20 years to life in prison for shooting music icon John Lennon to death the previous Dec. 8. Lennon had given Chapman his autograph only hours before the 25-year-old drifter shot him outside Lennon's apartment building on New York's Upper West Side. Lennon's wife, Yoko Ono, was with him when he was killed.

In 1983, Jerry Lee Lewis's wife, Shawn Michelle Stephens, was found dead at their home in Hernando, Miss. An autopsy revealed she died of a methadone overdose.

In 1986, Italy's "La Scala" opera company made its first North American appearance in more than a decade with a performance of Verdi's "I Lombardi" at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver. The opera, set in the time of the Crusades, needed the extra space of the Coliseum for its huge sets and action scenes.

In 1988, country singer-songwriter Nat Stuckey, who first hit the country top-10 in 1966 with "Sweet Thang," died in Nashville of lung cancer. He was 54.

In 1989, 6,000 people paid from $75 to $1,500 each to see "The Who" and an all-star cast in "Tommy" at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. It was one of two performances of the rock opera during "The Who's" reunion tour.

In 1990, Sinead O'Connor stirred up controversy by demanding that "The Star Spangled Banner" not be played before her show at the Garden State Arts Centre in Holmdel, N.J. The centre banned any further appearances by O'Connor, and several radio stations in New York and New Jersey stopped playing her records.

In 1990, heavy metal group "Judas Priest" was cleared in a $6.2 million civil suit. The lawsuit claimed that subliminal suggestions on their songs led two youths to shoot themselves in 1985.

In 1992, the Vancouver Parks Board cancelled a free concert by Bryan Adams, set for Labour Day, in Stanley Park. The board rejected demands by Adams's manager, Bruce Allen, that a previously-agreed-upon 42,000-person attendance limit be lifted, citing fears of damage to the park. Allen said the move was necessary to overcome potential ticket-scalping and security problems.

In 1995, singer-actor-author Gary Crosby, son of Bing, died in Burbank, Calif., of lung cancer. He was 62. Two duets with his father, "Sam's Song" and "Play a Simple Melody," made a double-sided No. 3 hit in 1950.

In 1998, Grand Ole Opry comedian Jerry Clower died in Nashville following heart bypass surgery. He was 71.

In 1999, renowned classical guitarist Alexandre Lagoya died at age 70.

In 2005, American singer Justin Timberlake accepted an apology and undisclosed damages from the British tabloid newspaper "News of the World" that falsely accused him in a July 2004 article of cheating on girlfriend Cameron Diaz with British model Lucy Clarkson. Clarkson agreed to pay "a sum equal to that which she agreed to receive from the "News of the World" for her story.

In 2008, a float plane piloted by "Barenaked Ladies" frontman Ed Robertson crashed into the woods north of Bancroft, Ont., near Baptiste Lake. Robertson, his wife and two friends survived uninjured.

In 2011, music industry executive Frank Dileo, who managed Michael Jackson's career in the 1980s and returned as his manager in the superstar's final days, died at age 64.

In 2011, Esther Gordy Edwards, who helped build Motown Records alongside her brother Berry Gordy Jr. and led efforts to turn its original Detroit headquarters into a museum, died at age 91.

In 2013, Julie Harris, one of Broadway's most honoured performers, whose roles ranged from the flamboyant Sally Bowles in "I Am a Camera" to the reclusive Emily Dickinson in "The Belle of Amherst," died of congestive heart failure at age 87. She won five Tony awards for best actress in a play and honoured again in 2002 with a sixth Tony, a special lifetime achievement award.

I was recently listening to the Stones version of I Wanna Be Your Man and IMO that was a mistake, it is clearly not Stonsey at all and its terrible. Its much better when the Beatles did it. I remember some interview where MICK said the Beatles "gave them" that song, but why did they do that?

ON THIS DATE (46 YEARS AGO)
April 23, 1971 – The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers is released.
# ALL THINGS MUSIC PLUS+ 5/5 (MUST-HAVE!
# allmusic 5/5
# Rolling Stone (see origginal review below)
Sticky Fingers is the ninth British and 11th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released on April 23, 1971. It topped both the Billboard 200 Top LP's chart (4 weeks) and UK Albums chart (5 weeks). In 2003, Sticky Fingers was listed as #63 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
It is the band's first album of the 1970s and its first release on the band's newly formed label, Rolling Stones Records, after having been contracted since 1963 with Decca Records in the UK and London Records in the US. It is also Mick Taylor's first full-length appearance on a Rolling Stones album, the first Rolling Stones album not to feature any contributions from founding guitarist Brian Jones and the first one on which Mick Jagger is credited with playing guitar.
Although sessions for Sticky Fingers began in earnest in March 1970, The Rolling Stones had recorded at Muscle Shoals Studios in Alabama in December 1969 and "Sister Morphine", cut during Let It Bleed's sessions earlier in March of that year, was held over for this release. Much of the recording for Sticky Fingers was made with The Rolling Stones' mobile studio unit in Stargroves during the summer and autumn of 1970. Early versions of songs that would appear on Exile on Main St. were also rehearsed during these sessions.
With the end of their Decca/London association at hand, The Rolling Stones would finally be free to release their albums (cover art and all) as they pleased. However, their leaving manager Allen Klein dealt the group a major blow when they discovered that they had inadvertently signed over their entire 1960s copyrights to Klein and his company ABKCO, which is how all of their material from 1963's "Come On" to Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert has since come to be released by ABKCO Records. The band would remain incensed with Klein for decades over the act.
When Decca informed The Rolling Stones that they were owed one more single, they cheekily submitted a track called "Cocksucker Blues", which was guaranteed to be refused. Instead, Decca released the two-year-old Beggars Banquet track "Street Fighting Man" while Klein would have dual copyright ownership, with The Rolling Stones, of "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses".
"Jimmy Miller made a significant contribution to the band at the time. That was because he had a great set of ears and he was a musician."
~ Charlie Watts
COVER
The album's artwork emphasizes the suggestive innuendo of the Sticky Fingers title, showing a close-up of a jeans-clad male crotch; the cover of the original (vinyl) release featured a working zipper and mock belt buckle that opened to reveal cotton briefs. The vinyl release displayed the band's name and album title along the image of the belt; behind the zipper the white briefs were seemingly rubber stamped in gold with the name of American pop artist Andy Warhol, below which read "THIS PHOTOGRAPH MAY NOT BE--ETC." While the artwork was conceived by Warhol, photography was by Billy Name and design by Craig Braun.
The cover photo of Joe Dallesandro's crotch clad in tight blue jeans, was assumed by many fans to be an image of Mick Jagger, however the people actually involved at the time of the photo shoot claim that Warhol had several different men photographed (Jagger was not among them) and never revealed which shots he used. Among the candidates, Jed Johnson, Warhol's lover at the time, denied it was his likeness, although his twin brother Jay is a possibility. Those closest to the shoot, and subsequent design, name Factory artist and designer Corey Tippin as the likeliest candidate. After retailers complained that the zipper was causing damage to the vinyl (from stacked shipments of the record), the zipper was "unzipped" slightly to the middle of the record, where damage would be minimized.
The album features the first usage of the band's "tongue & lips" logo, which was originally designed by Ernie Cefalu. Although Ernie's version was used for much of the merchandising and was the design originally shown to the band by Craig Braun, the design used for the album was illustrated by John Pasche.
In 2003, the TV network VH1 named Sticky Fingers the "No. 1 Greatest Album Cover" of all time.
ORIGINAL ROLLING STONE REVIEW
(Note: Review includes BETWEEN THE BUTTONS)
SIDE ONE
"Brown Sugar:" It begins with some magical raunch chords on the right channel. In the tradition of great guitar intros ("All Day and All of the Night," "Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown," and "Satisfaction" itself) it transfixes you: instant recognition, instant connection. Suddenly the electric guitar is joined by an acoustic guitar on the left channel, an acoustic that is merely strumming the chords that the electric is spitting out with such fury. It washes over the electric to no apparent purpose, stripping it momentarily of its authority and intensity. and so, in the first 15 seconds of the albums first cut we are presented with its major conflict: driving, intense, wide-open rock versus a controlled and manipulative musical conception determined to fill every whole and touch every base.
As soon as the voices come on, the acoustic recedes into inaudibility: on "Brown Sugar" wide open rock wins by a hair, but it is a hollow victory. Opening cuts on Stones albums have always been special, fro the early ones - "Not Fade Away," "Round and Round," and "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love: - with their promise of rock and roll to come, to the tour de force openings of the later albums - "Symphony for the Devil" and "Gimme Shelter" - which served as overwhelming entrances into a more complex musical world view.
At their best these opening cuts were statements of themes that transcended both the theme itself and the music that was to follow. As I listened to "Sticky Fingers," for the first time I thought "Brown Sugar" was good, but not that good. I certainly hoped it wasn't the best thing on the album. As it turns out, there are a few moments that surpass it but it still sets the tone for the album perfectly: middle-level Rolling Stones competence. The lowpoints aren't that low, but the high points, with one exception, aren't that high.
As to the performance itself, the chords, harmony, and song are powerful stuff. The instrumentation however, is too diffuse, occasionally undermining the vocals instead of supporting them. But when Richards joins Jagger for the last chorus they finally make it home free.
"Sway:" Vaguely reminiscent of "Stray Cat Blues" but not nearly so powerful. The sound is characteristic Rolling Stones messiness enhanced by the unusual degree of separation in the mix. Charlie Watts bashes away with the smirking abandon that made him such a delight on songs like "Get Off My Cloud" and "All Sold Out." But unlike early Stones messiness, "Sway" lacks intensity. It never reaches a goal because it doesn't seem to have one. Rather, it remains a series of riffs whose lack of content is obscured by prolonged and indifferent guitar semi-solos and a fine string arrangement that suddenly enters towards the end.
"Wild Horses:" A good song with lots of good things in it that doesn't quite come off. The acoustic 12-string stands out over everything else in the arrangement - perhaps a little too far out, as the rest of the instruments sound like mere fragments, wandering in and out of the track at arbitrary intervals.
Jagger's vocal is clearly audible for the first time on the album and I don't care for it. It is mannered, striving for intensity without being wholly convincing. Musically, the more complex the Stones get the m ore inadequate he sometimes sounds. The man is a stylist as opposed to a singer. He has always lacked power and range: on 15 albums he has never really grabbed hold of a note and let it ring. At his best, he sings around the notes - plays with them - dancing in and out with precision.
Or, he can let himself go entirely, with no attempt at stylistic posturing and thereby achieving an almost incredibly naturalism. But, on "Wild Horses," there is a pint in which the only thing that will work is a good note, well sung, sustained and sufficient to stand on its own. It is not to be found. A musical attitude is not a replacement for a musical style and style is not a replacement for essential technique, which is what is missing here.
The longing of the song's lyrics coupled with its ultimate hope constitute as much of a theme a there is on this record. Typically (since "Between the Buttons") the Stones' statement alternates between aggressive sexuality and warmer, more subtly erotic statements of emotional dependence and openness. The flirtation with social significance of the last two albums has been almost wholly abandoned in what appears to be something of a recommitment to more personal subject matter.
"Can't You Hear Me Knocking:" Years ago, when I first heard that the Stones had recorded something 11 minutes long, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, thinking it was sure to be the definitive rave-up and hoping it would finally put the Yardbirds and Them in their place. When I finally heard "Going Home" I realized the Stones couldn't conceive of a long cut as anything but a vehicle for Jagger to project through. Given the time to stretch out, they went for the mellow down easy side with the emphasis on the voice rather than the instruments.
Now they have done something with a long instrumental break in it and it ain't bad. On the other hand, I can't see what it really has to do with the Rolling Stones. The song is good but once into the solos there is a touch of R&B, a touch of Santana, but nothing to really identify with. So maybe they had the right idea the first time. For old times sake I do hope that the really boring guitar solo is by Mick Taylor and that those great surging chords in the background are by Keith Richards, the original Sixties rock and roll guitarist, and mast of Chuck Berry music, and the soul of the Rolling Stones.
"You Gotta Move:" Anyway, for the present, Mick Taylor's electric slide guitar is absolutely exquisite. Combined with Richard's fine work on the acoustic they create one of the album's few real moments. Charlie Watts' bass drum holds it together perfectly, while Richard's harmony smoothes off the more outrageous edges of Jagger's lead vocal. In the end, all the pieces fit. A small but important triumph.
SIDE TWO
"Bitch:" Jagger in one of his most popular poses: demonic. here he flaunts naughty words and naughty thoughts as if he still thought they were naughty. The arrangement is straight-ahead. The horns sound great here as they are used primarily for purposes of syncopation and rhythm. The bass and drums - the Rolling Stones bottom that has driven its way through over 200 cuts and which is the true instrumental trademark of the group - burns like a bitch.
"I've Got the Blues:" In the tradition of the earlier R&B Imitations such as "Pain In My Heart," "You Better Move On," "If You Need Me," and best of all their great "That's How Strong My Love Is." However, this is the first time they actually added Stax horns. It's good as far as it goes, but lacks the feeling of the earlier imitations. It all seems pro forma. The worst cut the Rolling Stones ever released was "I've Been Lovin' You Too Long" (which sounds very much like a studio recording even though it showed up on "Got Live I You Want It"). Jagger couldn't sing it. Here he almost sings up a storm, but in the end its the part he didn't sing that stays in mind. Somehow, it isn't complete.
"Sister Morphine:" This was supposed to be stark, intense and realistic. Some hear it that way. I find it lyrically convincing, but labored to the point of being unlistenable musically. Perhaps that is part of the conception: obviously, a song about morphine should not be pleasant to hear. The question is, is the song unpleasant because it makes us uncomfortable emotionally, or simply because it is an awkward and unsuccessful attempt to depict reality through music?
"Dead Flowers:" I suppose somewhere along the line they thought of calling the album "Dead Flowers," which would have justified this cut's presence at some level. Despite its parodistic intentions, the mere thought of the Stones doing straight country music is simply appalling. And they do it so poorly, especially the lead guitar. The cut is ordinary without being either definitive or original.
"Moonlight Mile:" From "Brown Sugar" we had to wait all the way to here to get a masterpiece. The semi-oriental touch seems to heighten the song's intense expression of desire, which is the purest and most engaging emotion present on the record. The sense of personal commitment and emotional spontaneity immediately liberate Jagger's (double-tracked) singing: it's limitations become irrelevant and he rises to the occasion by turning in his best performance on the album - the only thing that compares with his singing of "Gimme Shelter."
There is something soulful here, something deeply felt: "I've got silence on the radio, let the airwaves flow, let the airwaves flow." Paul Buckmaster, Elton John's arranger, does the best job with strings I can remember in a long, long time, while Charlie Watts only goes through the motions of loosening up his style, as he comes down hard on the nearly magical line, "Just about a moonlight mile."
The cut contains that rave-up they never gave us on "Goin Home"; perhaps it is just a filling out of the intensely erotic climax that came towards the end of that song ("Sha-la-la," and all of that). When Jagger finally says "Here we go, now" as Mick Taylor's guitar (Richard is inexplicably absent) falls perfectly into place with a hypnotic chord pattern, it's as if he is taking our hand and is literally going to walk us down his dream road. As the strings push the intensity level constantly upwards and Charlie emphasizes the development with fabulous cymbal crashes, the energy becomes unmistakably erotic - erotic as opposed to merely sexual, erotic in a way that the entire rest of the album is not. The expression of need that dominates so much of the record is transformed from a hostile statement into a plea and a statement of warmth and receptiveness.
This cut really does sway and when Jagger's voice re-enters, it is with none of the forced attempts at style and control present on the rest of the album, but with the kind of abandon that he seems uniquely capable of. And unique is the best word to describe the cut as a whole: after nine songs that hover around the middle, they finally hit the high note and make a statement that is not just original but that could have only come from them.
At least it gives me hope for the future.
AFTER THE BUTTONS
The early Stones were adolescent rockers. They were self-conscious in an obvious and unpretentious way. And they were committed to a musical style that needed no justification because it came so naturally to them. As they grew musically the mere repetition of old rock and blues tunes became increasingly less satisfying. They went from doing other people's material to doing their own. From doing their own, basic rock & roll material they began to strive for a more contemporary feeling and approach at all levels, especially production (first on Between the Buttons and then on Their Satanic Majesties Request). After the failure of Satanic Majesties they went back to rock & roll to recharge themselves, mixed it with contemporary themes and production styles, and come up with Beggar's Banquet and Let It Bleed.
Those two albums are responsible for the Stones' reputation with most of their current audience and comprised the bulk of their material on their tour of America. The darker side of those albums was all but ignored. Where the early Stones had been, if anything, too anarchic and too abandoned, they now became too controlled and manipulative. At their best, on “Gimme Shelter,” they could use the production to break through conventions into pure feeling. But on cuts like “Salt of the Earth” and “You Can't Always Get What You Want” they showed insufficient versatility to handle the demands of production. They plodded instead of rocking, seemingly mired down by their conception of what they were supposed to do rather than being involved with what they wanted to do.
On Sticky Fingers, it doesn't really sound like they are doing what they want to. Play “Brown Sugar” and then play any opening cut from the first five albums. The early ones are sloppy, messy, and vulgar. They are brash and almost ruthless in their energy. And they sound real. By comparison “Brown Sugar,” for all its formal correctness is an artifice. Ultimately they sound detached from it, as they do from all but a few things on Sticky Fingers. The two million hours they joke about spending on this record must have surely resulted from uncertainty about what it was they wanted to hear when they were through. On the other hand, those early records always sounded (whether they were is irrelevant) as if they were recorded in a day, without any overdubbing, comprised mainly of first takes. They reverberated with off the wall spunk and spontaneity.
Obviously the Stones can't go back to that: it would be redundant and incredibly limiting for them. But perhaps they have now gone too far the other way. If Sticky Fingers suffers from any one thing it's its own self-defeating calculating nature. Its moments of openness and feeling are too few: its moments where I know I should be enjoying it but am not, too great.

June 8, 1969: The brilliant but troubled Brian Jones, founding member of The Rolling Stones, announced that he was leaving the band, saying that, musically, he no longer saw “eye to eye” with the rest of the Stones.
In reality, Brian had been fired by Mick and Keith because of his increased drug use and erratic behavior. Emotionally and physically Brian was a mess and was actually contributing very little to band. He would die from an accidental drowning at his home less than a month later.

ON THIS DATE (46 YEARS AGO)
April 23, 1971 – The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers is released.
# ALL THINGS MUSIC PLUS+ 5/5 (MUST-HAVE!
# allmusic 5/5
# Rolling Stone (see origginal review below)
Sticky Fingers is the ninth British and 11th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released on April 23, 1971. It topped both the Billboard 200 Top LP's chart (4 weeks) and UK Albums chart (5 weeks). In 2003, Sticky Fingers was listed as #63 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
It is the band's first album of the 1970s and its first release on the band's newly formed label, Rolling Stones Records, after having been contracted since 1963 with Decca Records in the UK and London Records in the US. It is also Mick Taylor's first full-length appearance on a Rolling Stones album, the first Rolling Stones album not to feature any contributions from founding guitarist Brian Jones and the first one on which Mick Jagger is credited with playing guitar.
Although sessions for Sticky Fingers began in earnest in March 1970, The Rolling Stones had recorded at Muscle Shoals Studios in Alabama in December 1969 and "Sister Morphine", cut during Let It Bleed's sessions earlier in March of that year, was held over for this release. Much of the recording for Sticky Fingers was made with The Rolling Stones' mobile studio unit in Stargroves during the summer and autumn of 1970. Early versions of songs that would appear on Exile on Main St. were also rehearsed during these sessions.
With the end of their Decca/London association at hand, The Rolling Stones would finally be free to release their albums (cover art and all) as they pleased. However, their leaving manager Allen Klein dealt the group a major blow when they discovered that they had inadvertently signed over their entire 1960s copyrights to Klein and his company ABKCO, which is how all of their material from 1963's "Come On" to Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert has since come to be released by ABKCO Records. The band would remain incensed with Klein for decades over the act.
When Decca informed The Rolling Stones that they were owed one more single, they cheekily submitted a track called "Cocksucker Blues", which was guaranteed to be refused. Instead, Decca released the two-year-old Beggars Banquet track "Street Fighting Man" while Klein would have dual copyright ownership, with The Rolling Stones, of "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses".
"Jimmy Miller made a significant contribution to the band at the time. That was because he had a great set of ears and he was a musician."
~ Charlie Watts
COVER
The album's artwork emphasizes the suggestive innuendo of the Sticky Fingers title, showing a close-up of a jeans-clad male crotch; the cover of the original (vinyl) release featured a working zipper and mock belt buckle that opened to reveal cotton briefs. The vinyl release displayed the band's name and album title along the image of the belt; behind the zipper the white briefs were seemingly rubber stamped in gold with the name of American pop artist Andy Warhol, below which read "THIS PHOTOGRAPH MAY NOT BE--ETC." While the artwork was conceived by Warhol, photography was by Billy Name and design by Craig Braun.
The cover photo of Joe Dallesandro's crotch clad in tight blue jeans, was assumed by many fans to be an image of Mick Jagger, however the people actually involved at the time of the photo shoot claim that Warhol had several different men photographed (Jagger was not among them) and never revealed which shots he used. Among the candidates, Jed Johnson, Warhol's lover at the time, denied it was his likeness, although his twin brother Jay is a possibility. Those closest to the shoot, and subsequent design, name Factory artist and designer Corey Tippin as the likeliest candidate. After retailers complained that the zipper was causing damage to the vinyl (from stacked shipments of the record), the zipper was "unzipped" slightly to the middle of the record, where damage would be minimized.
The album features the first usage of the band's "tongue & lips" logo, which was originally designed by Ernie Cefalu. Although Ernie's version was used for much of the merchandising and was the design originally shown to the band by Craig Braun, the design used for the album was illustrated by John Pasche.
In 2003, the TV network VH1 named Sticky Fingers the "No. 1 Greatest Album Cover" of all time.
ORIGINAL ROLLING STONE REVIEW
(Note: Review includes BETWEEN THE BUTTONS)
SIDE ONE
"Brown Sugar:" It begins with some magical raunch chords on the right channel. In the tradition of great guitar intros ("All Day and All of the Night," "Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown," and "Satisfaction" itself) it transfixes you: instant recognition, instant connection. Suddenly the electric guitar is joined by an acoustic guitar on the left channel, an acoustic that is merely strumming the chords that the electric is spitting out with such fury. It washes over the electric to no apparent purpose, stripping it momentarily of its authority and intensity. and so, in the first 15 seconds of the albums first cut we are presented with its major conflict: driving, intense, wide-open rock versus a controlled and manipulative musical conception determined to fill every whole and touch every base.
As soon as the voices come on, the acoustic recedes into inaudibility: on "Brown Sugar" wide open rock wins by a hair, but it is a hollow victory. Opening cuts on Stones albums have always been special, fro the early ones - "Not Fade Away," "Round and Round," and "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love: - with their promise of rock and roll to come, to the tour de force openings of the later albums - "Symphony for the Devil" and "Gimme Shelter" - which served as overwhelming entrances into a more complex musical world view.
At their best these opening cuts were statements of themes that transcended both the theme itself and the music that was to follow. As I listened to "Sticky Fingers," for the first time I thought "Brown Sugar" was good, but not that good. I certainly hoped it wasn't the best thing on the album. As it turns out, there are a few moments that surpass it but it still sets the tone for the album perfectly: middle-level Rolling Stones competence. The lowpoints aren't that low, but the high points, with one exception, aren't that high.
As to the performance itself, the chords, harmony, and song are powerful stuff. The instrumentation however, is too diffuse, occasionally undermining the vocals instead of supporting them. But when Richards joins Jagger for the last chorus they finally make it home free.
"Sway:" Vaguely reminiscent of "Stray Cat Blues" but not nearly so powerful. The sound is characteristic Rolling Stones messiness enhanced by the unusual degree of separation in the mix. Charlie Watts bashes away with the smirking abandon that made him such a delight on songs like "Get Off My Cloud" and "All Sold Out." But unlike early Stones messiness, "Sway" lacks intensity. It never reaches a goal because it doesn't seem to have one. Rather, it remains a series of riffs whose lack of content is obscured by prolonged and indifferent guitar semi-solos and a fine string arrangement that suddenly enters towards the end.
"Wild Horses:" A good song with lots of good things in it that doesn't quite come off. The acoustic 12-string stands out over everything else in the arrangement - perhaps a little too far out, as the rest of the instruments sound like mere fragments, wandering in and out of the track at arbitrary intervals.
Jagger's vocal is clearly audible for the first time on the album and I don't care for it. It is mannered, striving for intensity without being wholly convincing. Musically, the more complex the Stones get the m ore inadequate he sometimes sounds. The man is a stylist as opposed to a singer. He has always lacked power and range: on 15 albums he has never really grabbed hold of a note and let it ring. At his best, he sings around the notes - plays with them - dancing in and out with precision.
Or, he can let himself go entirely, with no attempt at stylistic posturing and thereby achieving an almost incredibly naturalism. But, on "Wild Horses," there is a pint in which the only thing that will work is a good note, well sung, sustained and sufficient to stand on its own. It is not to be found. A musical attitude is not a replacement for a musical style and style is not a replacement for essential technique, which is what is missing here.
The longing of the song's lyrics coupled with its ultimate hope constitute as much of a theme a there is on this record. Typically (since "Between the Buttons") the Stones' statement alternates between aggressive sexuality and warmer, more subtly erotic statements of emotional dependence and openness. The flirtation with social significance of the last two albums has been almost wholly abandoned in what appears to be something of a recommitment to more personal subject matter.
"Can't You Hear Me Knocking:" Years ago, when I first heard that the Stones had recorded something 11 minutes long, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, thinking it was sure to be the definitive rave-up and hoping it would finally put the Yardbirds and Them in their place. When I finally heard "Going Home" I realized the Stones couldn't conceive of a long cut as anything but a vehicle for Jagger to project through. Given the time to stretch out, they went for the mellow down easy side with the emphasis on the voice rather than the instruments.
Now they have done something with a long instrumental break in it and it ain't bad. On the other hand, I can't see what it really has to do with the Rolling Stones. The song is good but once into the solos there is a touch of R&B, a touch of Santana, but nothing to really identify with. So maybe they had the right idea the first time. For old times sake I do hope that the really boring guitar solo is by Mick Taylor and that those great surging chords in the background are by Keith Richards, the original Sixties rock and roll guitarist, and mast of Chuck Berry music, and the soul of the Rolling Stones.
"You Gotta Move:" Anyway, for the present, Mick Taylor's electric slide guitar is absolutely exquisite. Combined with Richard's fine work on the acoustic they create one of the album's few real moments. Charlie Watts' bass drum holds it together perfectly, while Richard's harmony smoothes off the more outrageous edges of Jagger's lead vocal. In the end, all the pieces fit. A small but important triumph.
SIDE TWO
"Bitch:" Jagger in one of his most popular poses: demonic. here he flaunts naughty words and naughty thoughts as if he still thought they were naughty. The arrangement is straight-ahead. The horns sound great here as they are used primarily for purposes of syncopation and rhythm. The bass and drums - the Rolling Stones bottom that has driven its way through over 200 cuts and which is the true instrumental trademark of the group - burns like a bitch.
"I've Got the Blues:" In the tradition of the earlier R&B Imitations such as "Pain In My Heart," "You Better Move On," "If You Need Me," and best of all their great "That's How Strong My Love Is." However, this is the first time they actually added Stax horns. It's good as far as it goes, but lacks the feeling of the earlier imitations. It all seems pro forma. The worst cut the Rolling Stones ever released was "I've Been Lovin' You Too Long" (which sounds very much like a studio recording even though it showed up on "Got Live I You Want It"). Jagger couldn't sing it. Here he almost sings up a storm, but in the end its the part he didn't sing that stays in mind. Somehow, it isn't complete.
"Sister Morphine:" This was supposed to be stark, intense and realistic. Some hear it that way. I find it lyrically convincing, but labored to the point of being unlistenable musically. Perhaps that is part of the conception: obviously, a song about morphine should not be pleasant to hear. The question is, is the song unpleasant because it makes us uncomfortable emotionally, or simply because it is an awkward and unsuccessful attempt to depict reality through music?
"Dead Flowers:" I suppose somewhere along the line they thought of calling the album "Dead Flowers," which would have justified this cut's presence at some level. Despite its parodistic intentions, the mere thought of the Stones doing straight country music is simply appalling. And they do it so poorly, especially the lead guitar. The cut is ordinary without being either definitive or original.
"Moonlight Mile:" From "Brown Sugar" we had to wait all the way to here to get a masterpiece. The semi-oriental touch seems to heighten the song's intense expression of desire, which is the purest and most engaging emotion present on the record. The sense of personal commitment and emotional spontaneity immediately liberate Jagger's (double-tracked) singing: it's limitations become irrelevant and he rises to the occasion by turning in his best performance on the album - the only thing that compares with his singing of "Gimme Shelter."
There is something soulful here, something deeply felt: "I've got silence on the radio, let the airwaves flow, let the airwaves flow." Paul Buckmaster, Elton John's arranger, does the best job with strings I can remember in a long, long time, while Charlie Watts only goes through the motions of loosening up his style, as he comes down hard on the nearly magical line, "Just about a moonlight mile."
The cut contains that rave-up they never gave us on "Goin Home"; perhaps it is just a filling out of the intensely erotic climax that came towards the end of that song ("Sha-la-la," and all of that). When Jagger finally says "Here we go, now" as Mick Taylor's guitar (Richard is inexplicably absent) falls perfectly into place with a hypnotic chord pattern, it's as if he is taking our hand and is literally going to walk us down his dream road. As the strings push the intensity level constantly upwards and Charlie emphasizes the development with fabulous cymbal crashes, the energy becomes unmistakably erotic - erotic as opposed to merely sexual, erotic in a way that the entire rest of the album is not. The expression of need that dominates so much of the record is transformed from a hostile statement into a plea and a statement of warmth and receptiveness.
This cut really does sway and when Jagger's voice re-enters, it is with none of the forced attempts at style and control present on the rest of the album, but with the kind of abandon that he seems uniquely capable of. And unique is the best word to describe the cut as a whole: after nine songs that hover around the middle, they finally hit the high note and make a statement that is not just original but that could have only come from them.
At least it gives me hope for the future.
AFTER THE BUTTONS
The early Stones were adolescent rockers. They were self-conscious in an obvious and unpretentious way. And they were committed to a musical style that needed no justification because it came so naturally to them. As they grew musically the mere repetition of old rock and blues tunes became increasingly less satisfying. They went from doing other people's material to doing their own. From doing their own, basic rock & roll material they began to strive for a more contemporary feeling and approach at all levels, especially production (first on Between the Buttons and then on Their Satanic Majesties Request). After the failure of Satanic Majesties they went back to rock & roll to recharge themselves, mixed it with contemporary themes and production styles, and come up with Beggar's Banquet and Let It Bleed.
Those two albums are responsible for the Stones' reputation with most of their current audience and comprised the bulk of their material on their tour of America. The darker side of those albums was all but ignored. Where the early Stones had been, if anything, too anarchic and too abandoned, they now became too controlled and manipulative. At their best, on “Gimme Shelter,” they could use the production to break through conventions into pure feeling. But on cuts like “Salt of the Earth” and “You Can't Always Get What You Want” they showed insufficient versatility to handle the demands of production. They plodded instead of rocking, seemingly mired down by their conception of what they were supposed to do rather than being involved with what they wanted to do.
On Sticky Fingers, it doesn't really sound like they are doing what they want to. Play “Brown Sugar” and then play any opening cut from the first five albums. The early ones are sloppy, messy, and vulgar. They are brash and almost ruthless in their energy. And they sound real. By comparison “Brown Sugar,” for all its formal correctness is an artifice. Ultimately they sound detached from it, as they do from all but a few things on Sticky Fingers. The two million hours they joke about spending on this record must have surely resulted from uncertainty about what it was they wanted to hear when they were through. On the other hand, those early records always sounded (whether they were is irrelevant) as if they were recorded in a day, without any overdubbing, comprised mainly of first takes. They reverberated with off the wall spunk and spontaneity.
Obviously the Stones can't go back to that: it would be redundant and incredibly limiting for them. But perhaps they have now gone too far the other way. If Sticky Fingers suffers from any one thing it's its own self-defeating calculating nature. Its moments of openness and feeling are too few: its moments where I know I should be enjoying it but am not, too great.

Today in Music History: The Rolling Stones got no satisfaction

June 12, 2017

History Highlight:

Today in 1965, The Rolling Stones released one of the all-time most popular rock tunes, "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." The song was first played only on pirate radio stations as its lyrics were considered too sexually suggestive but it was later embraced by radio stations and the world as one of the greatest songs of all time. "Satisfaction" was added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress in 2006.

Also, Today In:

1957 - Jerry Lee Lewis's "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" was slowly climbing the charts.

1965 - The Supremes scored their fifth consecutive U.S. No. 1 single when "Back In My Arms Again" went to the top of the charts, making them the first American group to accomplish this feat. The song was written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland-Dozier-Holland, and features lead vocals by Diana Ross, background vocals by Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson and all instruments by the Funk Brothers.

1967 - Bob Dylan's first compilation album, Greatest Hits, peaked at No. 10 in the U.S. chart.

1972 - John Lennon and Yoko Ono released the politically oriented double-album Some Time In New York City.

1982 - Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and Gary "U.S." Bonds all performed for more than 450,000 fans at a rally for nuclear disarmament in New York's Central Park.

1994 - The soundtrack album to the Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction crept into the Billboard Top 50, where it eventually peaked at No. 21. No traditional film score was commissioned for Pulp Fiction; instead, the film contains a mix of rock 'n' roll, surf music, pop and soul. The soundtrack album features songs performed by Urge Overkill, Al Green, Maria McKee, Kool and the Gang, Rick Nelson and Chuck Berry, among others.

2006 - Prince received a Webby Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his "visionary" use of the Internet; Prince was the first major artist to release an entire album, 1997's Crystal Ball, exclusively online.

2013 - Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane was rushed into hospital to have an operation to remove a blood clot on his brain.

Birthdays:

Reg Presley, lead singer of The Troggs, was born today in 1941.

Brad Delp of Boston was born today in 1951.

October 14, 1996: Eighteen years after it was filmed, "The Rolling Stones' Rock & Roll Circus" was finally released. The 1968 event (put together by the Stones) was comprised of two concerts on a circus stage and included performaces by not only the Stones but The Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull and Jethro Tull.
John Lennon also performed "Yer Blues" as part of a supergroup called The Dirty Mac, along with Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell and Keith Richards.
The concerts would be the last time that Brian Jones would ever play with the Stones.
The film was originally planned to be shown on BBC TV but Mick and Keith decided not to air it because of what they considered their sub-par performance. It was released in 1996 on DVD and Laserdisk.

May 10: On This Day in World History … briefly
On Mick Jagger’s 75th birthday, scientists named seven fossil stoneflies after present and former members of the band. Two species, Petroperla mickjaggeri and Lapisperla keithrichardsi, were placed within a new family Petroperlidae. The new family was named in honour of the Rolling Stones, derived from the Greek ‘petra’ that stands for ‘stone’. Scientists referred to the fossils as ‘Rolling Stoneflies’.

It’s June 5th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

In 1975, Pink Floyd’s former singer Syd Barrett turned up in the studio and was present while the band mixed Wish You Were Here. The majority of album’s tracks referred to Barrett’s increasing dementia.

In 2003, The Project, a group made-up of ex-Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, picked Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland as their vocalist, three days after Scott pled not guilty to drug charges. They’d go on to become Velvet Revolver.

In 1964, The Rolling Stones played their first-ever live show in America when they kicked off a North American tour in San Bernardino, California in support of their first album, The Rolling Stone.

In 1977, Alice Cooper’s boa constrictor, which appeared in his live act, suffered a fatal bite from a rat it was having for breakfast.

In 2002, Ramones bassist Dee Dee Ramone was found dead age 50 of a heroin overdose in his Hollywood home.

In 2007, Paul McCartney released his 21st solo album, Memory Almost Full.

In 1997, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher married Meg Matthews in Las Vegas. They would get divorced four years later.

And that’s what happened today in rock history.

50 Years Ago: Brian Jones is Fired by the Rolling Stones



Brian Jones announced his departure from the Rolling Stones on June 9, 1969 with a statement that read: “I no longer see eye-to-eye with the others over the discs we are cutting. … I want to play my kind of music, which is no longer the Stones music. The music Mick [Jagger] and Keith [Richards] have been writing has progressed at a tangent, as far as my own taste is concerned.”
The development came as a shock to many fans, but not to many in the music industry, and certainly not to his former colleagues Jagger, Richards, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. In fact, they’d fired him the previous day, but left it to him to decide how to tell the world. Tragically, it represented a point in a downward slope which became steeper: Jones would be dead within three week, another member of the “27 Club.”

Jones, as Wyman noted in his 1990 memoir Stone Alone, had been the band’s original leader. He’d drawn worthies together from across London’s blues and jazz scenes in 1962. “He formed the band. He chose the members. He named the band. He chose the music we played. He got us gigs,” Wyman wrote. However, from early on there appeared to be some resentment directed at Jones by Jagger and Richards, who weren’t happy that he paid himself £5 more than the others to reflect his management services and senior position.
Musically, though, there could be no questioning his ability. The multi-instrumentalist seemed able to get a tune out of almost anything, and in early Rolling Stones records he was heard playing harmonica, sitar, organ, recorder, cello, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, oboe, autoharp and a wide variety of guitars. He and Richards developed what they called “guitar weaving,” their trademark way of performing both rhythm and lead parts without clashing.

“I first saw Brian Jones play in, I think it was the Railway Arms in Ealing, or Ealing Jazz Club,” Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page once said. "I remember taking a sort of pilgrimage over there to see Alexis Korner’s blues band. … [Brian] played some Elmore James, and I thought, ‘Wow.’ ‘Cause I was listening to all of that stuff – as were, y’know, what were a real serious minority of guitarists that were listening to this sort of stuff. And then I found out that he could play harp afterwards, as well, and he was playing pretty good harmonica. And bit by bit it unfolded into what a wonderful musician he was. I mean, he was a really fine musician.”

Brought up in a comfortable family with a clipped accent to match – his father was an aeronautical engineer, his mother a church organist – Jones proved his rebellious nature by defying his relatives and estranging himself from them. He also had two children by the time he was 16 years old. The first resulted in his expulsion from school; the second, he never knew about. “My ultimate aim in life was never to be a pop star,” Jones said in a 1965 interview. “I enjoy it – with reservations, but I’m not really sort of satisfied, either artistically or personally.” He added with a curious smile: “Let’s face it, the future as a Rolling Stone is very uncertain.”

The appointment of manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham in 1963 gave Jagger and Richards an ally and appeared to make Jones feel further alienated. In his 2004 book Stoned, Oldham described Jones as uncomfortable with working as a team member from the start. Once Jagger and Richards were being encouraged to write their own material, Oldham added, there was less time in the set for the blues standards that Jones wanted to play. Oldham said Jones “resisted the symbiosis demanded by the group lifestyle, and so life was becoming more desperate for him day by day. None of us were looking forward to Brian totally cracking up.”
Jones, of course, was one of many artists of the era who decided to experiment with drugs – not only for the experience, but to help him deal with his insecurities. He was first arrested for possession in 1967, when police found marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine in his London flat. At the time he admitted only to marijuana use, saying he avoided stronger substances. (Girlfriend Anita Pallenberg left him for Richards earlier that year, making relations worse between the bandmates and send him deeper into difficulty.)

Drugs and alcohol contributed to an increase in the strength and frequency of his mood swings, colleagues said. Often warm and approachable, he displayed periods of anger and nastiness. “There were at least two sides to Brian’s personality,” Wyman wrote. “One Brian was introverted, shy, sensitive, deep-thinking. The other was a preening peacock, gregarious, artistic, desperately needing assurance from his peers. … He pushed every friendship to the limit and way beyond.”

By 1968, Jones’s contribution to Stones music had diminished remarkably. That year's Beggars Banquet featured less psychedelia and more rootsy blues than previous outings, which he would have enjoyed. But his work ethic had become almost impossible to support. “Keith and I took drugs, but Brian took too many drugs of the wrong kind, and he wasn’t functioning as a musician,” Jagger said of the album sessions in 2012 documentary Crossfire Hurricane. “I don’t think he was that interested in contributing to the Rolling Stones anymore.” However, Jagger continued: “One time when we sat around on the floor, we played in a circle, playing ‘No Expectations’ – and he picked up the guitar and played very pretty lines on it, which you can hear on the record.”

https://youtu.be/URyqGD99Owg

Jones played guitar, Mellotron, sitar, harmonica, and tambura mainly in small parts, and had no writing credits on Beggars Banquet; Jagger and Richards wrote all but one song. In December 1968, Jones appeared in The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus movie, where his contribution was seen to be almost insignificant, amid a difficult performance which many people on the inside felt would be his last. Let it Bleed was to be the final time he’d be heard on a Stones album. He tracked only congas for “Midnight Rambler” and autoharp for “You Got the Silver.”
For the rest of the recording sessions of the early part of 1969, he was either too intoxicated to work or not in attendance at all. “We didn’t even expect him to be there,” Richards said in Crossfire Hurricane. “If he turned up we’d find him something to do. … By then he was already in Bye-Bye Land.” In a frequently quoted exchange from the sessions for “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” Jones asked Jagger: “What can I play?” He received the terse response: “I don’t know, Brian – what can you play?”
In May, Jones was arrested for a second time and charged with cannabis possession. The jury found him guilty, but despite facing a long prison term because he was still on probation for his previous offense, the judge fined Jones a total of £155 – and warned him ominously: “For goodness sake don’t get into trouble again, or it really will be serious.”

The drug convictions were the catalyst for Brian Jones' dismissal from the Rolling Stones. As they planned a U.S. tour, it became clear that Jones was unlikely to be given a work visa because of his criminal record. On top of that, the band needed a member who knew the new songs, and Jones hadn’t been there often enough to learn them. His personal life continued to crumble: In the first half of the year, he got the band’s car impounded after parking illegally during a shopping trip, forcing Jones to hire a chauffeur-driven limousine to go home. Later, he crashed his motorcycle into a shop window and had to be hospitalized, under a false name to avoid publicity.

Jones was warned that a no-show at a photo shoot in London would trigger instant dismissal, and he did appear as required. However, with confirmation that a U.S. work visa would not be forthcoming, the Rolling Stones decided they needed to move on without him. On June 8, 1969, Jagger, Richards and Watts visited Jones in his Cotchford Farm estate in Surrey and told him he was out.

That scene is regarded as one of the slightly better moments in the generally panned 2005 Jones biopic Stoned. It depicts an awkward Jagger trying to present the case as delicately as possible before Richards just delivers the news, leaving Jagger to explain that he’ll be paid £100,000 and £20,000 for every year the band continues. As his former colleagues leave, Richards tells him: “You’ll get your act together, man.”

https://youtu.be/GaYRUfIm2U0

Watts said he couldn’t remember any details of the moment, but said in 2012 that it “wasn’t very nice.” He added: “I remember Mick and Keith saying, ‘We can’t go on like this; we needed another guy,’ and we did need somebody else.”

Once Jones had chosen his means of telling the world, the Rolling Stones announced that 20-year-old Mick Taylor was his replacement. “We’d known for a few months that Brian wasn’t keen,” Jagger said at the time. “He wasn’t enjoying himself and it got to the stage where we had to sit down and talk about it. So we did and decided the best thing was for him to leave.” Asked about Jones’s future plans, Jagger added: “He’s gotta do his own thing, man, and he hasn’t said anything to us about it.”
It seems, at first, that there was a chance Brian Jones would indeed get his act together. On visiting him at home a few weeks later, Alexis Korner said he appeared to be happier than anyone had previously seen him. He started working on new material of his own and had at least spoken to Korner, John Lennon, Mitch Mitchell and others about the idea of starting a new band.
It never happened. Late on the night of July 2, 1969, Jones’s body was discovered motionless at the bottom of his swimming pool. His passing was officially recorded as death by misadventure – although many feel the real story remains to be uncovered. The Rolling Stones released hundreds of white butterflies in his memory at their previously planned concert in London's Hyde Park two days later.
Jones was embalmed in an airtight metal casket and buried in his home town of Cheltenham in an extra-deep grave to deter any “trophy hunters” from digging him up. Of his former colleagues, only Wyman and Watts attended his funeral; Jagger and Richards said they were unable to attend.
“He was different over the years as he disintegrated,” Lennon told Rolling Stone in 1971. “He ended up the kind of guy that you’d dread to come on the phone because you knew it was trouble. … He was really in a lot of pain. But in the early days he was alright, because he was young and good-looking. He was one of them guys that disintegrated in front of you. … When he died, I didn’t feel anything, really. I just thought, ‘Oh, another victim of the drugs.”

https://youtu.be/SPMNUNd4T4k

Watts told the BBC that he “always felt sorry for Brian. He was two things: he was not very nice, and he upset people very easily. He wasn’t very pleasant.” Jagger added: “Fame doesn’t sit very comfortably on anyone’s shoulders. But some people’s shoulders [don’t] seem to fit it on at all. And he was one of them.”
Still, his musical impact – on the Stones and on his era – remains undeniable. “Brian Jones was one of the first people in Britain to play slide guitar and his love of the blues was at the heart of what he and the rest of the Rolling Stones were all about when they started out,” UdiscoverMusic's Richard Havers later noted. “His musicianship, especially in the early days of the band, added so much the singles that propelled the Rolling Stones into the pop charts; it was his fashion sense and his hairstyle, that appealed to both men and women, that were copied by bands on both sides of the Atlantic.”
Wyman echoed those sentiments: “Many attitudes and sounds of the '60s were developed from Brian’s style and determination. He was the archetypal middle-class kid screaming to break away from his background, bumming around in dead end jobs before finally finding his niche. And when he found it, he hammered it across to the world, with idealism and commitment. … He was very influential, very important, and then slowly lost it … and just kind of wasted it and blew it all away.”

Q: What was the big deal about the Rolling Stones album cover of “Some Girls”? Why was it censored? It wasn't dirty.

A: That 1978 album was censored thanks to some uptight “celebrities.” The album cover featured pictures of lingerie ads and the Rolling Stones themselves as ladies; but that's not why the cover was censored - the cover also featured head shots of some female celebrities. Legal action was threatened against the Stones by none other than Farrah Fawcett, Lucille Ball, Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe's estate and Liza Minnelli (for the picture of her mother, Judy Garland; Mick Jagger ran into Minnelli at a New York disco and apologized – no word if she was gracious or not). The album was reissued with an insert that said PARDON OUR APPEARANCE - COVER UNDER CONSTRUCTION and the celebs were removed (even the ones that DIDN'T complain) but the lingerie ads and the Stones in drag were kept. “Some Girls” was the first album recorded with Ron Wood as a full member.
