Oooo! Stones fight!
Dec 07, 2006, 20:16
My point is if I wished to listen to Chuck Berry, I would! The Stones made a lot more money than he ever did without adding anything musically, so good for them I guess! Give Sir Mick an honorary doctorate in marketing!

As for the Beatles, they did quite well at fashioning their own sound -- which has been imitated muchly ever since (including by the Stones!)

I also think John Coltrane's a more interesting jazz player than Louis Armstrong -- not that there's anything "not enough-ish" about old timey New Orleans style jazz, I just appreciate those who "reach" a little further -- more "progressive", you know.

Face it, The Rolling Stones are about as "conservative" as music gets!
