50 years with the band Rolling Stones! Maybe they influenced the lifestyle for some fellows of my generation. They are an example, that it is possible for white people to understand the American blues music.

I like the book “Bill Wyman‘s Blues Odysse”, published 2001 by Dorling Kindersley Limited, London: a great tribute to blues by one of the Rolling Stones band members. Many of their rock’n roll songs are related to black music. The big hit “The Last Time” (1965) is related to the gospel “This may be the last time” by the Staple Singers – listen to the YouTube video below …

I love the Rolling Stones. Exile on Main Street is perhaps my favourite album. The opening track is just incredible!
loved this – they are the greatest ….
When I was little the good girls liked the Beatles and the naughty girls liked the Stones, guess which I liked? 🙂
The Stones and the Blues–both seeped into my very bone marrow over the past 50 years! Cannot imagine who I would be without both musical sources!
Ahhhh. Memories. Thanks 🙂
Music, art, love . . . . the best of it is colourblind! And it will last forever!
I was a music snob when I was a teenager back in the 80’s , thinking that the young punk bands were better than what came before them, so wasn’t much of a fan of The Rolling Stones back then.
But of course I’ve matured since then! I’ve become a fan of The Stones, especially the ’68 – ’72 years, and ’78 – ’81. Good music knows no age or color barrier.
The Rolling Stones definitely have ‘staying power’. Thanks for this post.
I always did prefer the Stones to the Beatles – more visceral. It’s one of the few things I haven’t changed my mind about in 50 years! Even the look of them – not just the sound – defined the need we felt for rebellion and social change back then. Today I’d rather listen to Haydn but I still cherish a fondness for Mick and the Boys.
