Ed was a dick head.
And Topo Gigio was a racist.
In fact her had all sort of racism on the show.

Jose' Jimenez is not impressed.

Fark the Rolling Stones. Most successful attention whores in the history of modern media. Fortunately, nothing more than a fading memory as retirees "get down" to an updated Showbiz animatronics show. The miracle of modern technology.

Wrong, dude - you supposed to say "The Beatles".
 
2013-10-25 11:49:48 AM  
part of the reason people don't appreciate the stones anymore is because of the death of the blues.   with the advent of hip-hop, the blues genre has been shrinking greatly.  the stones style of rock n' roll was, and is,  based on the blues.   i can totally see how someone who has never been exposed to the I-IV-V chord progression wouldn't appreciate, much less like the stones.   ALL modern music has gone away from the classic blues chord progression.

and, that's sad...the 'ol black bluesers are the basis for everything.    now they're just forgotten.

fwiw, i love the stones....i was eight when i bought "exile"...sure, i'm old...but, i've also seen them 14 times.  you folks on here dissing them just really don't get it, and that's because you don't understand the blues.  and, that's okay.  i don't get justin bieber.

Just listen to yourself.  Comparing the Stones so what-his-name is pretty insulting.  And writing the blues' obituary is  out of line.

Nope, REM. Maybe it was just in the Southeast, but for ages you couldn't go to a party or a bar or listen to the radio without having them assault your ears, and their fans are second only to Pink Floyd fans for being tedious wankers.

Next on that list would be Talking Heads. Proof positive of Lester Bangs' contention that art students shouldn't be allowed to form bands.

The Nickleback of their era, though with worse musicianship (might be related to lack of sobriety).

Actually, I wasn't trolling. I really can't stand the Stones. The only part of their catalog I can stomach is the louche, self-parodying late 70s disco sound. Probably the most authentic music they ever made.

Well, maybe, but it sounded like you were calling out all us haters as dumbass white boys who'd never heard the blues before. I've heard the blues. That's why I can't stand the Stones.

I'll give you points for the most accurate description I've ever read of their late 70s sound. Xrist, but I hated those albums.

Anything without Brian Jones or Mick Taylor isn't a Stones album to me. After Mick left, they started to swirl the bowl.

You were trolling.  Trolling is the very definition of "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."  You posted something hyper-critical that was a personal opinion (in the minority) with little discourse to back it up.

You had to post your extremely negative view in order to challenge other people.  With that kind of post, given how popular the Stones are, you were looking for people to try and change your opinion when you were dug in on how you think.  What the hell do you think it was if it wasn't trolling?
 
2013-10-25 01:32:32 PM  
The Sullivan show was also the scene of the first instance of selling out by the Stones, when they knuckled under and changed the lyrics from "Let's spend the night together" to "let's spend some time together".
 
2013-10-25 01:33:13 PM  
See, here's the funny thing about musical discourse:

If I don't like a band, I don't go out of my way to bash them.  I will give a band a listen, see if they are for me, and if they aren't, then I go along my way.  That's why I can't stand people who use Kid Rock/Nickelback/Bieber as a punch line.

I like Kid Rock.  Not a fan of Nickelback.  Don't listen to Beiber's music, but I bash him because he acts like a punk, not because of his music.

Perhaps I'm more zen in that regard.  Not every band is for everybody, but I also feel that Nickelback as a punchline is the worst form of trolling possible.

It was me being in a pissy mood and annoyed with other people hero-worshipping the Stones. Sorry if that pissed in your Cheerios. I will bow out of the thread and leave it to those who never mouth off in Fark threads to spread sunshine and rainbows in my absence.

They had a choice.  Either change the lyrics or get booted from the show.  As the Sullivan show is one of the biggest music promoters at the time, you can see why they "sold out".

It always amuses me to see early video of these bands. It is odd seeing the stones looking vaguely respectable.

For giggles, I took a course in the History of Rock. It was disconcerting that the band that played House of the Rising Sun looked like the Gryffindor quidditch team.

Sorry, I couldn't disagree more.  While, no, it isn't what's featured on your local radio station and they don't have Li' Ed and the BLues Imperials on SNL, it is a significant swath of the fragmented music market, and the fans are rabid.  Look over your average club and bar lineup in any city, and it's chock-full of blues.  Almost every town has multiple blues and barbecue festivals and usually a healthy blues society.  I don't think it's in the public eye (it really never has been) as much as Lady Gaga or even big time rock acts like the Stones, but it's grass-roots following is strong and, I would say, growing.

The original statement was : 'the hippies ate it up'.

The reality is that suburban kids who bought the clothes and records pushed on them by the industry ate it up. Actual people who were present for the Summer of Love thought they were a crap band that was just cashing in, and I think time has proved them right.

Other than Manzarek producing for 'X' I can't think of a meaningful thing the
3 survivors did, ever.
