So did the Pretty things. They shouldnt be forgotten and in my mind are musically,artistically and more dangerous than the Stones. More rawer in the early 60's, more psychedelic in the late 60's and more rockier in the 70's


but what does that all mean ??? what's being musically and artistically 'dangerous' got to do with the price of bacon ? i don't want artistic or dangerous. i just want good music. what i don't want is music that someones sat down and thought 'i know what'd make this more far out, lets add a backward tape of a llama stamping on a bucket to it'

but i'm not sure what all this being something 'other' than just rock n roll is all about. isn't just being rock n roll enough ?

the only time the Stones went a bit shit was when they tried to be psychedelic (IMHO). when they stick to what they're good at, eg: RNR/Blues. its then that they're absolutely peerless

aftermath, beggars, let it bleed, exile, sticky fingers, ya ya's. goats head soup blah blah blah

all complete rip offs obviously ;o)

Chuck actually wrote the opening riff to Gimme Shelter too
