The Rolling Stones 1990/1992

It’s so hard for me to wait, I take the stairs, because the elevator is too slow to open the doors, waiting for the microwave, longer than five minutes is killing me, so calling for pizza and then watching some mindless speech from Obama (which makes me sick), just to waist time until it comes. I’m even waiting for the iPhone 7, which is coming out in September or October, so waiting for a Rolling Stones album is the worst thing possible, but that’s what I had to do from 1989 until 1991 and when I got my album,  had to wait for another two years for a greatest hits album, which most came from other greatest hits albums. I was so disappointed. It took another two years for another one, will this torcher ever end, I hope so for my next post, will be empty of music and feeling, from me !!!

The Rolling Stones 1988/1990

Ever since Some Girls, I’ve been collecting anything about The Rolling Stones. Unlike The Beatles, which I started to collect in 1973, but wasn’t their when they were together, I was collecting The Rolling Stones from 1978 and I thought I’d be able to buy their albums on the same day it was released, but I kept waiting and waiting for the new album, that never showed. The Beatles announced, their split, but no words from The Rolling Stones.

I started to get interested with The Who at this point, which I was buying anything about The Who (I’ll be texting them soon), The Doors, The Kinks (I’ll also be texting about them soon), The Monkees (soon I’ll be texting them), Aretha Franklin (she be one I’ll be texting soon), Sam Cooke, Otitis Redding, Simon & Garfunkel (I’ll be doing them next),  The Supremes (I’ve already texted about them), Marvin Gaye (I’ve already started on him) and Motown, which this waiting has caused me.

Sometimes, a bad effect turns good, and since I don’t like to wait my money went to someone else. I already have Eric Clapton’s LP (someone else I’ll be texting about) and David Bowie (he’s from the 1960’s, so I’ll be texting him year by year like the others), so for me, this period of The Rolling Stones was a Blessing and not a curse, but I still want a new album from The Rolling Stones, or announcement that they broke up, because the wait was too much for me.

Then came Steel Wheels in 1989 and my wait was over. The album is too long for me to upload, so I hope the next one will be shorten. The only other album that year is The London Years, with all of their albums and 45’s from the 1960’s, which is great to have and I know a true Rolling Stones fans have !!!

The Rolling Stones 1986/1988

No album came out for another 8  years and their, which everyone thought it means theirs no longer to be The Rolling Stones, but we know better !!!

The Rolling Stones 1984/1986

Between 1964-1966, The Rolling Stones made 2-3 albums a year, which was common in those days. Between 1967-1983 one album per year, which even today performers do, but between 1984-1987, The Rolling Stones didn’t release any album.

Why, because after 20 years, of touring, they needed a vacation from each other and do solo projects.

Mick Jagger released his second album and Keith Richards finally released his first. The future of The Rolling Stones was unsure.

This wasn’t the 1960’s, where The Rolling Stones were treated as gods, the 1980’s were used to bands breaking up into solo or other bands. The 1980’s buying CD’s public knows that if one band or singer isn’t on the charts, then another one will take it’s place. So in the 1980’s generation, The Rolling Stones didn’t matter, but to those who been in the 1960’s and 1970’s did.

By 1986, there were rumors of a new Rolling Stones album, which will be released in 1987. Other then that, this post is meaningless, but I like it and that’s why I’m posted it !!!

The Rolling Stones 1982/1984

As I texted you on my last post, 1982 has nothing to do with The Rolling Stones, well 1983 does, with the album Under Cover, however I don’t have the space to upload it now. The title song is great, but the rest, seems as though they really wasn’t trying. If it was any other band, this album would be a One Hit Wonder and be hard to find, maybe that’s why the next Rolling Stones album wasn’t released until 1987.

1984, Americans were ready to vote for President Ronald Reagan, so The Rolling Stones not releasing an album wasn’t what they had on their minds.

once I get another upload, I’ll upload Under Cover, but I won’t be doing that for awhile !!!

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 !!!

Mick Jagger Day

I’ve been playing The Rolling Stones albums for the last two weeks, so playing more of them is hard to do. I’m going to post another Rolling Stones soon, and since I have two albums for your birthday, it’s only fitting to have another for this post.

To my fans (which I have none), here’s Tattoo You !!!

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.

In 2011, VH1 ranked Blige as the 80th greatest artist of all time. Moreover, she is ranked number 100 on the list of “100 greatest singers of all time” by Rolling Stone magazine.
