Their affectation of being “rebels” was thought preposterous by my student friends back then, though I suppose that there were some schoolchildren gormless enough to be taken in.

Johnathan Pearce October 18, 2010 at 12:40 pm I love the Stones. Good Thatcherite boys, one and all. Peace and love, that was for the pussies from Scouseland. DBC Reed October 18, 2010 at 5:20 pm Bout time somebody had a go at the Stones awful cover versions.They would today be known as an R’n’B tribute band.As its Chuck Berry Day compare his original version of” Come on” with the scandalous Stones copy which was not a revival because Chuck Berry’s was still in the shops.Then there was the dreadful cover of a the Beatles’ “I wanna be your man”plus the pointless re-jig of Buddy Holly’s “Not fade away” and the massacre of the Valentinos “Its all over now”. Mick Jagger’s voice is dreadful.They only got anywhere because they had a good record collection. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
