I love the Stones, and I do think Keith was very sexy circa 1968 and in the very early '70's. They are wrinkly, yes. But I have such admiration for them. I have seen them in concert many times, and am always amazed at Mick's stamina. I mean, how many men over the age of 60 can sing and dance and run all over the stage to over 20 songs? I gotta hand it to Mick for keeping his body in great physical condition - he's like an athlete.
True, I hate how the drugs have aged Keith. But he is such a brilliant, intelligent, witty man who writes the BEST lyrics ever.
And to be honest, they're not that wrinkly in person. I was surprised the first time I saw them. They are very short - 5'7" to 5'8", but they are all very lean and have the tonest biceps from all those years of playing guitar, drums, et al.
I just love those guys...and for them to have been together for over 43 years really says a lot.
My favorite Stones songs are "The Worst" by Keith Richards (his voice is awesome on this song!), "Paint It Black," and just about the entire Exile album! I love "Moonlight Mile" and most of their more obscure songs.
It's so hard to pick one favorite because they have such a huge selection to choose from!
I used to love listening to 'Moonlight Mile' before going to sleep a long time ago.I used to be a die-hard Rolling Stones fan in my teens (I would listen to them every day) . I was really obsessed with Brian Jones (and Anita Pallenberg) . My favourite albums might be 'Their Satanic Majesties Request' and 'Let It Bleed' . I do think that Keith and Mick were really hot back then. 'The 'Rolling Stones Rock'n'Roll Circus' film , 'Gimme Shelter' are great . I have two books about them, the huge one published by Virgin and a really rare one 'The Rolling Stones : The First Twenty Years' by David Dalton which contains a lot of rare pictures and interviews (I nearly cried when I found it at book fair) and also a book written by Anna Wohlin , Brian's last girlfriend about him , and a book about 'Performance' (film with Anita and Mick). I really like what they did during their first ten years , I'm not really a fan of the rest except for a few songs . Style wise, they were a huge influence , and I also like the style of some people who are related to them like Bianca and Jade Jagger ...
Favourite songs : ' Sing This Song Together ( See What Happens)' , 'Monkey Man' , 'Going Home' , 'Can't You Hear Me Knocking' , 'Angie' , 'Jigsaw Puzzle' , 'Midnight Rambler' , 'Sympathy for the Devil' , 'Jiving Sister Fanny' , 'Miss You'
