Oh this is what I was waiting for last night!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

In the original Stones thread, I mentioned how the Stones play on what is called the wobble. This video is one of the best examples of that from START to finish. It feels like the song is going to fall apart any second and it never does. They pick it back up and roll right back on track.

I live for this stuff!!!! Puffy hearts everywhere!!!!!

If you don't FEEL this groove head to toe, you literally have no soul.

A little background before I get to my point. I'm a casual fan of the Stones. I never bought an album and I like everything I ever heard from them, but I don't get the devotion to this band. People get tattoos of the lips (not judging, I'm a Deadhead with an appointment to get a Stealie tattooed around my RN tattoo), they pay 100's of dollars for the worst seats. I wonder, and only as a matter of curiosity, is what do you love about the Stones? I really want to know. Art is subjective and I always wonder what people like about things I don't really connect to, because other people's perspectives are always interesting to me. Thank you for obliging, or I get it if you don't

Edit: I know and accept that many of the artists I listen to are pompous assholes, so I removed what I said about that

Do you want the answer in narrative or will list form work?

Your choice. I'm just interested in other people's views. I guess that's why psych and peds were my best subjects in nursing school

I have written extensively about the Stones on this forum. This isn't the only thread I've commented on. It's only the most recent. I started this particular thread to block out the world during lock down.

I wish MeDotOrg could answer as if he were me because he's been reading my comments for a coupe of years or so and I think he gets where I come from re: Stones.

I'll start the list...if you like psych you'll probably love this. ;)

1. I've loved them since I heard their first blues covers. Their first album. Yes, I have it.
2. They're dirty. They're raw.
3. I like bad boys and I always have.
4. I love their dirty blues sound. If a bottle of whiskey could make a sound, it would sound like the Stones.
5. They took American blues and gave it back to America.
6. They're living contradictions. (Dirty, raw, artistic, intelligent, and refined.)
7. Keith Richards is a god.
8. They're survivors in every way I can think of.
9. They are a well practiced, well oiled machine.
10. Jagger and Richards have maintained the longest marriage in Rock n' Roll history.

I'm sure I have more to say, but it'll have to wait.

Example...

Thanks for your response.

That live rendition of the Muddy Waters classic was awesome. I'm a big fan of the blues. Most of the blues legends are dead and died before I was old enough to go to a concert. I am lucky enough to have seen BB King just a year or two before he passed. That was a religious experience. Anyways, your post has convinced me that I may have been missing out by not giving the Stones a closer look. I do have to disagree on one point. I'm pretty sure Keith Richards is undead, and not a god

Which Stones version did you prefer? The first or the second that I posted?

The second one for sure. Like you said, the whiskey. I get it now. Consider me a new convert

Rolling Stones cover by Motorhead. Better than the original.
