The Rolling Stones 1980/1982

The 1980’s was a great decade, for it open up in the the year 1981 with President Ronald Ragan, bring back Americans from Iran, George Harrison released All Those Years Ago with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and the song is about The Late John Lennon, and taxes were lowered. It was a great year for The Rolling Stones when they released Tattoo You, which started the third decade of great songs from The Rolling Stones !!!

However, nothing that happened in 1981, would happen in 1982, it was as though it never existed. Paul McCartney made an album, Ringo Starr, also made an album, and even Yoko Ono made one, but The Rolling Stones didn’t released anything. Taxes were still being lowered, but it was silent for The Rolling Stones.

The Rolling Stones did this once before in 1971-1972, so maybe it was a short break, let’s hope that’s true.

I’ll tell you more on the next post !!!

The Rolling Stones 1978/1980

The Rolling Stones is one of a few that survived two decades.

The Big Bands were popular until The Croners took over, and then Rock’N’Roll. In other words, 1940-1945 Glen Miller, 1945-1955 Frank Sinatra, 1955-1960 Elvis Presley, 1964-1970 The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, 1964-2013. The Rolling Stones have lasted them all.

The Rolling Stones were still making hit songs in the 1970’s as they did in the 1960’s and the upcoming performers couldn’t keep up. One Hit Wonders, Disco Punk and New Wave music all faded into the past and forgotten, but The Rolling Stones continue into the millennium.

Here is an albums that I wore out, 1980’s Emotional Rescue, most criticize it, but I love it !!!

Sir Michael Philip “Mick” Jagger (born 26 July 1943) is an English singer, songwriter and actor, best known as the lead singer and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

Jagger’s career has spanned over 50 years, and he has been described as “one of the most popular and influential frontmen in the history of Rock & Roll”. Jagger’s distinctive voice and performance, along with Keith Richards’ guitar style, have been the trademark of the Rolling Stones throughout the career of the band. Jagger gained press notoriety for his admitted drug use and romantic involvements, and was often portrayed as a countercultural figure.

In the late 1960s, Jagger began acting in films (starting with Performance and Ned Kelly), to mixed reception. In 1985, he released his first solo album, She’s the Boss. In early 2009, Jagger joined the electric supergroup SuperHeavy. In 1989 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 into the UK Music Hall of Fame with the Rolling Stones. In 2003, he was knighted for his services to popular music.

1943–1961: Early years

Michael Philip Jagger was born into a middle-class family in Dartford, Kent. His father, Basil Fanshawe “Joe” Jagger (13 April 1913 – 11 November 2006), and grandfather, David Ernest Jagger, were both teachers. His mother, Eva Ensley Mary (née Scutts; 6 April 1913 – 18 May 2000), born in New South Wales, Australia, of English descent, was a hairdresser and an active member of the Conservative Party. Jagger’s younger brother, Chris (born 19 December 1947), is also a musician. The two have performed together.

Although brought up to follow his father’s career path, Jagger “was always a singer” as he stated in According to the Rolling Stones. “I always sang as a child. I was one of those kids who just liked to sing. Some kids sing in choirs; others like to show off in front of the mirror. I was in the church choir and I also loved listening to singers on the radio–the BBC or Radio Luxembourg–or watching them on TV and in the movies.”

In September 1950, Keith Richards and Jagger were classmates at Wentworth Primary School, Dartford, Kent. In 1954, Jagger passed the eleven-plus and went to Dartford Grammar School, which now has the Mick Jagger Centre installed within the school’s site, named for its most famous alumnus. Jagger and Richards lost contact with each other when they went to different schools, but after a chance encounter at Dartford Station in July 1960, resumed their friendship and discovered their shared love of rhythm and blues, which for Jagger had begun with Little Richard.

Jagger left school in 1961 after obtaining seven O-levels and three A-levels. Jagger and Richards moved into a flat in Edith Grove in Chelsea, London with a guitarist they had encountered named Brian Jones. While Richards and Jones planned to start their own rhythm and blues group, Jagger continued to study business as an undergraduate student at the London School of Economics, and had seriously considered becoming either a journalist or a politician, comparing the latter to a pop star.

The Rolling Stones 1976/1978

From 1964-1977 The Rolling Stones made three love albums, but Love You Live is something special. It’s a double LP with only the 1970’s on it, and no Satisfaction on it at all, which is rare.

The Rolling Stones has enough songs of the 1970’s to do alive album, but to make it a double LP, can only make their fans satisfied.

Some Girls LP, is what got me tooked on The Rolling Stones. It’s stupid now, but their was a rumor that The Rolling Stones were homosexual, just because they had lipstick and wig edit it in their photos on their LP, but it was false, of course. The cover of LP and the CD album is different, because when you took out the vinyl, the holes in the cardboard cover of the LP, make the paper folder look different, which the CD cover can’t do.

With Some Girls, I had to know everything about The Rolling Stones, but I was still focus on The Beatles, to give it my all. It took two years for me to focus on The Rolling Stones, but when I did, I never let anyone to get in between The Rolling Stones and myself, that is except for The Beatles, but that goes without saying !!!

The Rolling Stones 1974/1976

As new performers make a hit song and then fade away, The Rolling Stones were making many hits and their followers were getting stronger.

With the Metamorphons album, The Rolling Stones have two hit songs, but the whole album, which they played in concerts for the rest of their career, and their fans sort after and is still a fan favorite.

With the Made In The Shade, it was even better for The Rolling Stones, Brown Surgar, It’s Only Rock’N’Roll and Angie blew the up and coming performers away into One Hit Wonders.

The Rolling Stones were famous and started, in the 1960’s, but they were bigger than life, with more hit songs, more than the new comers.

The trouble, with the 1970’s is, the performers had a hit song, which are still played on Oldies radio and greatest hits album, is that they try to make their songs, just like their hit song, or try to please their fans, but The Rolling Stones, wrote and played songs that they like, which is why their so great.

From Satisfacion to Brown Sugar, their songs are getting better and better.

I’m always waiting for a new Rolling Stones album, (I’m sure you are as well), and just like I wait for another of my posts, bringing uploaded, I’m looking forward to seeing it, so let me upload this post, so I can continue with the next one, so read my post, and learn what I’ve learned !!!

The Rolling Stones 1972/1974

Mick Jagger was an actor in the film The Performers, which has a cult following, and Bill Williams married his 17 years old girlfriend (which they both were dating when she was 14), but other than that, not much were mentioned, about the future of The Rolling Stones.

There were rumors that The Rolling Stones, broke up and went there own ways, or that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards can’t work together. All rumors were false, The Rolling Stones did not break up and Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote some songs, but won’t be until 1973 with Goathead Soup and 1974 It’s Only Rock’N’Roll, which is here, on my post, and I hope you will enjoy !!!

The Rolling Stones 1970/1972

The In the 1970’s, it was a time for new taste, new styles and most of all, new music. As of 1970 a new generation was into new music, and the 1960’s generation was protesting, but wasn’t buying any records, the record companies were gearing to the the new generation, but continue with the 1960’s

performers. The Rolling Stones had no trouble with the 1970’s  audience. As The One Hit Wonders were dropping off the charts, Motown and British Rock was going strong. The Rolling Stones released Sticky Fingers in 1971, which has a live of its own, even today it’s one of The Rolling Stones greatest albums, but they also released two double LP’s of their greatest hits, from the 1960’s in 1972 (a year before The Beatles two double Red and Blue LP’s were released), called Hot Rocks 1964-1971 and More Hot Rocks (Big Hits & Fazed Cookies)

 

Exile On Main ST. (1972), didn’t have any hit songs, for none was released, but it’s a favorite to Stones fans.

Between 1970 to 1972, The Rolling Stones, mainly toured around the world playing their songs from the 1960’s, so their was much time to writing and recording new music.

Whoever was at The Rolling Stones concert at that time, had the ride of their lives and I wished I could have been there !!!

The Band was a Canadian-American roots rock group, originally consisting of Rick Danko (bass guitar, double bass, fiddle, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones, trumpet), Richard Manuel (piano, drums, vocals) and Robbie Robertson (guitar, percussion, vocals). The members of the Band first came together as they joined rockabilly singer Ronnie Hawkins’s backing group, the Hawks, one by one between 1958 and 1963.

In 1964, they separated from Hawkins, after which they toured and released a few singles as Levon and the Hawks and the Canadian Squires. The next year, Bob Dylan hired them for his U.S. tour in 1965 and world tour in 1966. Following the 1966 tour, the group moved with Dylan to Saugerties, New York, where they made the informal 1967 recordings that became The Basement Tapes, which forged the basis for their 1968 debut album, Music from Big Pink. Because they were always “the band” to various frontmen, Helm said the name “The Band” worked well when the group came into its own. The group began performing as the Band in 1968 and went on to release ten studio albums. Dylan continued to collaborate with the Band over the course of their career, including a joint 1974 tour.

The original configuration of the Band ended its touring career in 1976 with an elaborate live ballroom performance featuring numerous musical celebrities. This performance was immortalized in Martin Scorsese’s 1978 documentary The Last Waltz. The Band recommenced touring in 1983 without guitarist Robbie Robertson, who had found success with a solo career and as a Hollywood music producer. Following a 1986 show, Richard Manuel committed suicide, but the remaining three members continued to tour and record albums with a succession of musicians filling Manuel’s and Robertson’s roles; the final configuration of the group included Richard Bell (piano), Randy Ciarlante (drums), and Jim Weider (guitar). Danko died of heart failure in 1999, after which the group broke up for good. Levon Helm was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998 and was unable to sing for several years, but he eventually regained the use of his voice. He continued to perform and released several successful albums until he succumbed to the disease in 2012.

The group was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1989 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. In 2004 Rolling Stone ranked them No. 50 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time,[6] and in 2008 they received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.[7] In 2004, “The Weight” was ranked 41st on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.[8]

In 2014, the Band was inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame.

Traffic were an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1967. The group formed in April 1967 by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason. They began as a psychedelic rock group and diversified their sound through the use of instruments such as keyboards like the Mellotron and harpsichord, sitar, and various reed instruments, and by incorporating jazz and improvisational techniques in their music. Their first three singles were “Paper Sun”, “Hole in My Shoe”, and “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush”.

After disbanding in 1969, during which time Winwood joined Blind Faith, Traffic reunited in 1970 to release the critically acclaimed album John Barleycorn Must Die. The band’s line-up varied from this point until they disbanded again in 1975. A partial reunion, with Winwood and Capaldi, took place in 1994.

In 2004, Traffic were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
