Sex, drugs & rock'n'roll.. (and kids)

Sex, drugs & rock'n'roll lifestyle in one's youth doesn't seem to influence fertility in the (let's use the word) old age as the example of two Rolling Stones members proves (good news for some..;)).. Congrats Mick and Ronnie!

Mick, Georgia May Jagger, Gabriel Jagger and James Jagger together (what a nice family photo!) Don't her lips look just like her father's.? :)

So this frog goes into a bank, goes up to the teller, Patricia Wak, and introduces himself. "Hi, my name is Kermit Jagger. My dad is Mick Jagger. I want to apply for a loan." Ms Wak says, "Well we will need some sort of collateral." The frog produces a small porcelain elephant. Ms Wak has a look at it and says, "This is a bit unusual, I'd better check with the manager." The manager comes out, inspects the elephant and says, "It's a knick knack Patty Wak, give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

Boom Boom

And always keep in mind: Cognitive biases, like seeing optical illusions are a sign of a normally functioning brain. We all have them, it’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it is something that affects our objective evaluation of reality.

Papa was (is) a Rolling Stone. Someone was gonna say it. :)

Let's hear it performed by a good bass player

Ps. Have the guys from some other thread built the subwoofer into a laptop.? (would be useful here)

And BTW just a couple of days ago I listened to a couple of Rolling Stones' songs from 'Grrrr..'(24bit version) compilation (songs from early 60s to late 80s period). And I had (again) this reflection - how can a top multimillion $$$ band like RS (or let's say Metallica in their early period) record their albums so baaad.? I know that musicians hear music in a different way and often don't care about their home audio gear (remember 'Stereophile''s 'Musicians' systems' or whatever was its title.?) but not being able to choose a good sound engineer or a producer when one can afford it is something beyond my comprehension..

Thanks for the Marcus Miller video. Made my day. At that musical talent and deaf in one ear(like Brian Wilson, another musical genius).

 

The Stones did employ top tier producers like Jimmy Miller and Glyn Johns(also a great engineer BTW). They, however, produced their music to sound good on a car radio since that's where the money was. Keith Richards specifically talks about getting music mixed down to a stereo cassette and running out to his car to see if the radio play mojo was there.

 

Keith's guitar riff in "Street Fighting Man," BTW, was recorded on a cassette.

 

As an aside, imagine what the Beatles' recordings would sound like if they'd been recorded on today's multitrack equipment(rather than having to repeatedly bounce tracks to make everything work with then SOTA four track technology). The Roy Halee produced and engineered Simon and Garfunkel recordings were made similarly.

I wonder if Bill Clinton has hit on her yet?

On her or ..on him.? ;)

(remember 'I wouldn't throw Mick Jagger out of my bed but no, I'm not gay' from Milos Forman's 'Hair'.?)

Everytime I play The Beatles (my first great musical fascination when I was 12-13) 24bit USB material (I have the CD set too :)) I'm greatly impressed how good it still sounds (especially the material from the end of 60s).

And again (sorry!) on the Rolling Stones subject - I simply love the title of a documentary hosted by Julien Temple, published by BBC :

'Keith Richards: The Origin of the Species'

The cover :) :
