I have that K. Moon album (which is entertaining, in a novelty kind of way). There are 2 versions of "Don't Worry Baby" on the reissue, and the second (bonus cut) has no info as to who's on it....is it John S? How do you know?

Mike, not saying I disagree because I'm not familiar enough, but was Keith's playing sloppy in the recent clips you referenced? What was lousy about it? And I agree 1,000% that the "badass" image is tired as heck. Nothing rebellious about it at all. You know what Jane's Addictiom said 30 years ago...

I find it appropriate that the Beachmen and the Ramones are the first two in the Music Matters series. Although I can't think of a single objective thing they have in common, I always thought the Ramones were a natural extension of the Beach Boys. Maybe it's just that they're both so damn American.
Avatar Sat. 1/19/19 12:07pm Michael Shelley:

@Russ - I'm saying the whole things is messy/sloppy, not completely in a bad way

@Jake - they can be great, absolutely, but live lately they usually are not

Emotional rescue is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/19/19 12:08pm Mike Sin:

Keith basically, at this point, projects the image his fans want him to project. He was never really a "bad ass"... No highly popular rock star ever really is... They behave a particular is a very tight bubble and the world reacts... Keith is one of a kind and completely fabulous as a musician, performer, and songwriter, though.
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:10pm dymphnite:

Part of the problem is that Mick stopped singing with any emotional intent after ‘72, and became a full time dervish.
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:13pm Russ:

@Mike Sin sounds like KR is enslaved to what his fans expect of him image-wise, then? That doesnt sound very liberating. I think there are downsides to having your ego stroked for decades. Someone like John Frusciante, on the other hand, has the right idea
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/19/19 12:13pm Hughie Considine:

Christgau was good on this: "And for the most part Jagger was a disgrace. Once his slurs had teased, made jokes, held out double meanings; now his refusal to pronounce final dentals--the "good" and "should" of "Brown Sugar," for example--conveyed bored, arrogant indolence, as if he couldn't be bothered hoisting his tongue to the roof of his mouth."

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/19/19 12:19pm TheLoneliestMonk:

you can goof on the corporate beast that the stones became if you please, but that mono box that came out a couple of years back proves just how real they were at one time
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:20pm prudy:

Shelley: I get understand what you're getting at. I reached 18 with Some Girls, so it has a particular resonance. Though I have to say now the early blues inspired Stones are beyond comparisonor me Like His Majesty's...
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:21pm DG:

Thanks, Michael! I have the 1st reissue of "Two Sides..", which only has a few bonus cuts (& doesn't include that version of the song). Wasn't aware that they reissued it w/a bonus disc (! incredible for something this marginal), I wonder how much "better" it is than the original.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/19/19 12:22pm Hughie Considine:

Some Girls came after a string of records that were increasingly derided and was hailed as a return to form, which come on, it totally was!

I know the feeling, @jake, I don't listen to Entwistle's Rigor Mortis Sets In too often either.
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:25pm Johnzon:

these songs sorta make more sense as straight up country numbers
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:25pm DG:

Saw the Stones 3 times (the last in '03, the Garden show that was on HBO) and they were always great/together. Saw some clips of them a few years ago that were definitely embarrassing, then saw that "Summer Sun" concert from Hyde Park on cable a few eyars ago, and they still sounded good...so maybe (like McCartney & other "veterans") they have good nights & bad night? (Also, The Last Waltz is one of the best concert movies ever, band squabbles/controversies notwithstanding.)
Avatar Sat. 1/19/19 12:26pm Dr. Goot:

Entwistle could sing and wrote his own songs, Moonie was just looking for someone to hang out with. youtu.be...

Oh, man, this Levon side just cooks, doesn't it? Lost gem.
Avatar Sat. 1/19/19 12:28pm Michael Shelley:

yes, one thing about the stones is their many phases - the early records with so many covers, their poppy mid 60s stuff, the records that show their interesting transition into a harder band, Exile and the next few... then Some Girls, then the 80s records (which I mostly like), then...

Every time it pops up on my iTunes, I think, who the hell *is* that? They have a lot of great records, but that tune seems sort of sui generis in its funkiness. Any others like that?
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:30pm Frank Zaatar:

That wasn't just a slightly squarer version of The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down--that sounded downright pro-Confederate. I always thought Levon was being kind of ethnographic, but these guys are obviously sad they lost the war.
  Sat. 1/19/19 12:31pm Tom:

I know Michael has a plan for the show, but will there be an update on the situation in Shamokin?

'Exiles' is a definitive masterpiece - album - even if not their best songs.
Watching the video of the Stones @ Oldachella - thinking it's the oldest act going thru the motions - & - @ the same time - no one else has that experience to compare...
