Never had kidney stones, so i think i'm doing something right. Which would be a novelty.

About a month ago I found both Quadrophenia and Tommy on vinyl.  I was completely stoked and bought them both.

So here's a fact you may not know about these two iconic releases.  They are both pretty farkin' terrible, Tommy especially.   Some great songs, sure, and a whole lot of experimental noise and shiat.   Tommy is embarrassingly bad in some places.  For a two disk record to only have three good songs on it is a bad thing.

Doesn't matter, he has an inimitable style. And he's Mick F*cking Jagger.
You'll note that a song referencing him says moves like Jagger, not dances like Jagger.

In 1972 the Stones were a fantastic band. The concert film "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones" is better than anything in The Who's catalog. Townshend's concerns -- speaking simply as a lyricist -- were goofy and juvenile. Repeat: I'm just talking lyrics here. I really loved The Who -- from my teen years through my early 20s -- but they never really had an adult POV.

I prefer the Stones to the Who and the Beatles.  I like songs from both the latter, but I believe I like a larger quantity of songs from the former.

That being said, which, of course, is only my preference, why would people say they are in a "better" band at all?  Seems silly to me.

Fark taught me the "why not both" way of thinking years ago.  I have been slowly backing away from choosing any favorite anything for quite a while now.  Our lead guitarist has Asperger's.  It drives him nuts.

LOL, like either band can't buy a small country with what they make in merchandising every year.

Guys, you don't have to drop trou and measure dicks any more.  You both won the game.

The Who, at their peak, were much better than the Stones.
The Who live, were superior to the Stones as well all other bands of the era.

Well, Mick and Keith havent gone prattling on about Brexit and "woke" culture, unlike Daltrey.  So they have that going for them.

Remember that time when both bands did that Rock n Roll Circus thing and the Who played so much better that the Rolling Stones didn't want the movie released for years?

Yeah, Roger might have a point

Not challenging your taste, but looking at my vinyl editions of "Tommy," the concept album is 3 records. Are you referring to the movie version? That is only 2.

Say what you want about Tommy, but Quadrophenia is an absolute masterpiece.

Guess I'm in the minority here, but I never cared for the Stones at all, and like the Who a lot. I never really got the appeal of the Stones, I found their music simplistic and it just didn't do anything for me. But The Who... well, that was a band that could really write some damn good songs. I just always felt like the Stones were a pop act and The Who were true musicians.

The Who was better. The proof is that The Who were popular primarily in the UK while the Stones were exported to America.

Mick Taylor turned them into a real blues band. Much the same way Joe Walsh turned The Eagles (fark I hate that band) into a rock band.

I think McCartney and Daltrey are just talking smack due to the Stones hitting the 60 year mark next year.

McCartney sold out after the Beatles. It isn't the Who without Entwhistle (really without Moon)

Other than losing Charlie, the Stones still have their core.

Here's a review of their Pittsburgh show that I really enjoyed.

I think the original was a double album set up for record changes.  That is one disk has sides 1 and 4, and the other has sides 2 and 3.  I have  MCA2-10005 released in 1973.   The record sleeve is a tri-fold, but I can't find any version of it with three actual records in it.

It is definitely the better of the two records, and has more good songs on it.  Still a lot of experimental crap, though.

The early Stones stuff was pretty darn good.  Satisfaction, Mother's Little Helper, Under My Thumb, Paint It Black, etc. The later stuff you can have.

And they were great live.  I've seen them twice, (both during the Tattoo You tour) and they do put on a hell of a show.

The Stones have always, always, prescribed to James Brown's work ethic. Jagger never tried to dance like Brown, not even in the realm of possibility.

The Stones had a much wider range than The Who, and you can sort of argue legitimately in either direction that they had a larger range of actual good music than The Beatles.

Without just straight-up knowing their bibliography (and the fact that that's something that's an entirely reasonable alternative sort of argues for the size of their cultural importance in itself) it's actually super hard to hear a Stones song and actually peg it as a Rolling Stones song specifically, because they could basically make a song with any sound they wanted and make it turn out well.  Blues covers were, in fact, 100% something they did a lot of and they're farking great.  So are the super-poppy numbers they did and the electric'd up do-wop songs they did.  And the shiat where they mumbled and just shredded a bunch like slightly-slower Clapton imitators.  That's the thing about the Stones, they tried a bunch of different shiat and it mostly actually worked.

Is Daltrey salty because when his band tried to get experimental, it turned out to be shiat and they had to get back into their lane?
