“We haven’t finished yet. It’s still too early to talk about the Stones’ legacy. There’s one thing that we haven’t yet achieved and that’s to really find out how long you can do this. It’s still such a joy to play with this band that you can’t really let go of it.” @officialKeef
There are so many things incongruous about this tweet from Keith Richards, but it’s all above water. People are living longer, and this is the price we pay for it. Don’t get me wrong, I like the Rolling Stones, but the younger vital version. The geriatric group is a whole different can of beans, no longer edible.
Before I talk about how narcissism is slowly destroying our society, I would like to talk about what makes me better than most of the world.
Here are two bands that make up more than half of the classic rock radio playlist. You can not go more than an hour without hearing Led Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones. It is with much dignity and the most satisfied stomach that I bestow upon you the following mash up.
Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1973 before “Sweet Home Alabama”
This is one of those crazy rock and roll stories I have heard and it may not be true, but it sounds like it is. It’s like that crazy No Doubt myth. In 1976, the Lynyrd Skynyrd played with The Rolling Stones at the Knebworth Fair Festival. Also on the bill: 10cc, Todd Rundgren’s Utopia and Hot Tuna.
