Today we will talk about the awesome musical band The Rolling Stones. The Rolling Stones are synonymous with the rebellious spirit of the 1960s. This amazing and harmoniously disastrous group of guys broke into the world of rock ‘n’ roll and revolutionized it.
Long-livers of rock even have their own museum in Germany, six of the best hits were awarded the Grammy Hall of Fame as being of historical importance, and in 2018 Rolling Stones received another Grammy award for the best traditional blues album (“Blue and Lonesome”).
The main genre of the group is rock and roll.
A group was created back in 1962. 1965 brought the band recognition and the American public after the hit “(I Can t Get No) Satisfaction”. The psychedelic album “Aftermath” was sold in the States at every corner. Mick Taylor, who took over as Jones, joined the group. The group began to promote “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” as a lifestyle. In early 1968, Oldham resigned his production powers and handed them over to Alain Klein.
The discography of the group has 7 albums.
- The Rolling Stones (1964)
- Between the Buttons (1967)
- Sticky Fingers (1971)
- It’s Only Rock-n-Roll (1974)
- Undercover (1983)
- A Bigger Bang (2006)
- Blue and Lonesome (2016)
SO MANY MEMBERS
Over the entire period, the group has changed many members. Now there are 4 people in the group. Among the participants it is worth highlighting: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood. I think that it is Mick Jagger who makes the musical group so solid due to its charm. In addition, one cannot ignore the fact that Charlie Watts is considered by many experts to be the inspiration of the group. Also from the old participants there are those whose influence on the development of the group cannot be ignored.
Among them, for example, Brian Jones. Many experts recognize the exclusivity of his work. It was he who came up with the words for the legendary song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”.
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want” was recorded on November 16 and November 17, 1968 at London’s Olympic Sound Studios. Ian Stewart also deserves a mention.
I think the band’s coolest song is “Gimme Shelter”. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, “Gimme Shelter” was created from the combined efforts of both the singer and the guitarist. Richards had been working on the song’s signature opening in London while Jagger was working on the film Performance. The song takes the form of a churning mid-tempo rocker. It begins with a rhythm guitar intro by Richards, followed by Jagger’s lead vocal. On the recording of the album, Jagger said in a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone, “Well, it’s a very rough, very violent era.
ROLLING STONES GROUP NOW
