      Love the Stones. Saw them live during their "Bridges To Babylon" tour. Paint It Black, She's A Rainbow, Angie, Can't You Hear Me Knocking, Jigsaw Puzzle, and everything on Exile On Main St. are my favorites.

        I'm a fan, I have a bunch of stuff on vinyl, a couple of cds the 25 X 5 video and Rock and Roll Circus DVD and some bootleg stuff. Scorsese's Shine a Light film about them is coming here next month, I may go see it. '67 - '72 is my favorite Stones era, Between the Buttons through to Exile on Main st.

        I also have that great picture of Keith Richards passed out next to a Keep America Drug Free sign on my bedroom wall.

          I'm a big fan of every album from Aftermath through It's Only Rock N Roll. I do like Bridges To Babylon too, but that's because it was their newest album that came out after I got into them, as well as the album they were promoting the first and only time I saw them live, and I'm nostalgiac in that way.

          Did I mention "Paint It Black" is my ringtone?

              I have encountered such people, but they ain't worth talking about. I've seen the Shine a Light thing now, I had a great time.

                Used to like this group a lot. I still do, yet I don't often get a chance to listen to the songs.

                  I have a poster on my bathroom door of Keith, looks like it was taken in the 70's, and he's wearing a t-shirt that says "Who The Fuck Is Mick Jagger?"

                    My favorite Stones song is "Gimmie Shelter".

                        As you all may know, the balance of their 1981 album Tattoo You, which had topped the U.S. Billboard 200 Album charts between September and November of that year, was (mostly) a mishmash of unreleased songs taken from recording sessions commenced between 1972 and 1979.

                        The opening track and lead-off single, "Start Me Up," was originally conceived as an upbeat reggae number tentatively titled "Never Stop" when initially recorded in Munich during the Black and Blue sessions in 1975. They returned to recording this in Paris in 1977 during the Some Girls sessions which spawned their last U.S. #1 single "Miss You" released in 1978. "Hang Fire," which follows "Start Me Up" on the LP and was the 3rd single extracted from it, was recorded in 1977 as well.

                        "Waiting on a Friend" (which features a Sonny Rollins saxophone solo) was among the oldest recorded songs on this album, having originally been recorded in late 1972 in Jamaica during the Goat's Head Soup sessions. As a result, Mick Taylor (a Stones guitarist from 1969-74) played guitar on this song, not Ronnie Wood. (Taylor later demanded and received a share of the album's royalties following its release.)
