    Hey everyone! This is just a thread to discuss the self-proclaimed (and rightfully!) 'Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World'!
    A few rules:
    1. Be respectful of others' opinions-DON'T 'SHOUT' AT THEM! ;)
    2. Keep it clean! Refer to songs like 'Starf***' as 'Star Star,' aka their clean names.
    3. Don't post download links! Don't want the Board to be known as a Pirate's Paradise! ;)
    4. Have fun!

    Can't wait to talk to some of you about the Stones! :)

    Who's your favorite Stone?
    I personally prefer Charlie Watts, since I'm a drummer. I've got nothing against Keef, Ron, or Mick, though!

    That's a tough question. I might have to say Mick. Tomorrow I might say Keith!

    It is one of the easiest-hardest questions I could think of. I almost asked 'What's your favorite album/song,' but I can't pick just one! :)

    Truly a great band! What a catalog of songs they have! I have a whole lot of their stuff on my Amazon Cloud Player.
    I saw them back in 1966, when they were just getting started, and 'Satisfaction' was out. I was in the fifth row right, in front of Keith.
    Brian Jones was beautiful!
    Favorite song? I can't pinpoint just one, but I do love 'Heaven' a lot, and "Almost Hear You Sigh' is another I love.

    Brian Jones. He was the original bandleader who formed the band, chose the members and named the band.

    Been a Stones fan for a long time. I've been lucky enough to see them three times. Kieth is the real musician, but Jagger is a front man parexelance! Together they are the greatest rock 'n roll band in the world. Favorite album Beggars Banquet. But favorite song, Honkey Tonk Woman. Go figure

    They are still going strong after all these years-Do not know too many rockers their age still performing.

    I wish they would all go into assisted living....I am sick of them. My favorite song of them is The Girl With The Far-away Eyes. I sorta like Mick....though he is starting to look silly high-stepping around like a myna bird.

    Yep, I adore how it starts, so ethereal and compelling, then becomes a tune you really must play extra loud, like turn the knob to pain and bleeding minus two.

    For the classic rock, I loved the old Dire Straites.

    Wow, to refer to Dire Straits as "classic rock" makes me feel so old.

    I saw a movie called "Shine a Light" at the Imax theatre and that was really quite good. Buddy Guy was jamming with them. I liked the flashbacks to when they were just starting out and being interviewed in their 20s.

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    Favorite song: Sympathy For the Devil
    Favorite Stone: Gotta go with Keith. He's a hell of a musician.

    (BTW, any discussion of the Stones makes me think of John Dalglish. One of the first, best memories I have of this board was of a grand 'Stones vs. Beatles' debate. Makes me happy and sad at the same time)

    You got that right. Hard not to jack up the volume every time I hear it. I'm not sure who the female background singer is on that song, but her voice is just haunting and beautiful all the way thru the song.

    I saw an old music special on tv a couple of years ago with Mark Knoppfler from Dire Straits playing Bluegrass music with Chet Atkins. It was absolutely amazing watching both of those guys go at it. Both of those guys are amazing musicians.
