The Rolling Stones


Whenever someone thinks about rock, this group comes to mind. One of the few acts to survive such a long time and still be awesome. They started in the 60's, and were viewed as a tougher counterpart to the Beatles during the 'British Invasion'. Eventually they moved away from covers and pop to a more bluesy style of their own.

Their best albums were made between 1968 and 1972 (from Beggars Banquet to Exile on Main St.), which was when the band was more focused. After that they started to relax. They still release some good songs from time to time, but their average dropped. However, how dare you complain? It's the Rolling Stones! Their live shows are great too.





My Top 5:
-Sympathy for the Devil
-Gimme Shelter
-Paint it, Black
-Shine a Light
-Can't You Hear Me Knocking

  1. Goat's Head Soup was always my favorite Stones album. That version of Winter towards the end is epic!
