Re: Oooo! Stones fight!

I get tired of the ridiculous 'pale imitators' argument. Everyone has heroes, everyone starts somewhere. Would you rather have a world without AC/DC, The Beatles, ZZ Top, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin et al?
They all started out imitating American blues musicians and all, like the Stones, took it somewhere unique and distinctly OTHER.
Even those blues guys were imitating earlier blues guys.
And no American Blues ever sounded like "Under My Thumb", "She Said Yeah", "Stray Cat Blues" "Get Off My Cloud" etc.

I like every song on Exile except "Shine A Light".

I think Their Satanic Majesties (grammatically challenged) Request is one of their worst early period LPs, though Citadel and a few other tracks on it are great...and it is an interesting listen, in MONO. The stereo is crap.
