THE ROLLING STONES ...STICKY FINGERS








What better way to welcome new guitarist Mick Taylor and celebrate starting your own record company than coming up with one of the most memorably direct album sleeves of all time? Second only to John Pasche's Lips and Tongue logo , STICK FINGERS giant nob in denim is as savvy a coporate ad as you could come across. Plus, it still straddles avant and mainstream as well now as it ever did.
The insert sleeve featured the first ever use of the tongue logo and showed the lads in all their 1971 funny trousers and velour pants glory. Like the cover, there’s no fluff – just the logo once, one photo and some credits.

THE ROLLING STONES TOUR 2013 ?







   Yes, the BIG QUESTION Everyone wants to Know. Will The Stones be Touring in 2013 to Celebrate the Bands 50th Anniversary? 
     The Rolling Stones are not touring in 2012. In separate interviews with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Richards said "Basically, we're just not ready." says Richards. Instead, 2013 is the new goal. "I have a feeling that's more realistic," says Keith.
Roling Stones insiders say one reason for the delay is Keith Richards' health. Questions have been brought up to the fact if Keith would be able to make it through a World Wide Tour. Keith suffered a head injury while on vacation in Fiji in 2006 and his guitar playing abilities have suffered since. 
       Keith was on The Jimmy Fallon Show in 2010 and told Jimmy, "You are looking at a very rusty Keith Richards right now."  "If you've been on the road for two years and suddenly you stop, you put it down for a little bit. And then a little bit longer and you say, 'I really got to catch up, man.'"
       It has been said that the Stones do not want to do a full Tour. What might happen is the band would do a Tour of less cities  and would do longer dates in these cities. For example they might play New York, Los Angeles, London and other cities for 10 nights runs.
  The Stones recently gathered at a studio in London, playing together for the first time since 2007. Former Bassist Bill Wyman played with the band for the first time since leaving the band in 1992.  Mick Jagger said of the jam session, " We played a lot of Blues and outtakes of SOME GIRLS and things like that. It went very well."
 Richards added, "It was a very back-to-basics sort of session. There was a lot of jamming. On the third day, Mick turned up, which was a real joy. Because I set it up really as a magnet, you know."
After one of the longest periods of Stones inactivity ever, the group is revving up again for a slew of projects, including the 2013 dates, new studio sessions and a major documentary. "I saw Mick on Saturday," Richards says. "
    Keith also said, "He's (of Mick Jagger) going to be living in New York too for a while, so we're planning to get things going with the Stones again." Richards adds that the Stones will begin rehearsing for a studio session as early as next month. "We'll just get the boys back together again then and maybe cut a side," he says. "I've got plenty in the locker here, but it's not on tape."
    Well fans, all we can do is Hope and Pray for good health for Keith and the rest of the Band and just wait and see what happens, and we've always got our album collections;  Some Girls, Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed, Tattoo You, Big Hits, and ....... We've got Youtube too! Thank God for Youtube and Thank God for The Rolling Stones, "The World's Greates Rock Band Ever."

Michael Kevin "Mick" Taylor (born 17 January 1949 Hertfordshire, England. Taylor is best known as a former member of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (member 1966 to 69)  and with The ROLLING STONES from 1969 to 1974 . Since resigning from the Rolling Stones in December 1974 Taylor began working with numerous other artists and has released solo albums. Taylor was listed in Rolling Stone Magazine's 2012 list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time, ranked at 37th place.
In 1965 at age 16, Taylor went to see a John Mayall's Bluesbreakers performance at "The Hop" Community Centre, Welwyn Garden City. A drummer friend of the Juniors, Danny Bacon, remembers: "On the night in question, I had gone to The Hop with some guys from our band, former schoolmates and Ex-Juniors Mick Taylor and Alan Shacklock. It was after John Mayalll had finished his first set without a guitarist that it became clear that for some reason Eric Clapton was not going to show up. A group of local musicians, which included myself, Robert 'Jab' Als, Herbie Sparks, and others, along with three local guitarists—Alan Shacklock, Mick Casey (formerly of the Trekkas) and Mick Taylor—were in attendance." Taylor himself has said after seeing that Clapton hadn't appeared, but that his guitar had already been set up on the stage, had approached John Mayall during the interval, asking if he could play with them, mentioning that he'd heard their albums and knew some of the songs. After a moment of deliberation, Mayall agreed. Taylor amended, "I wasn't thinking that this was a great opportunity.. I just really wanted to get up on stage and play the guitar."
Taylor played the second set with Mayall's band, and afterwards, they exchanged phone numbers, which proved to be pivotal in his career a few years later. Taylor had won Mayall's respect, and when he was 17, Mayall was looking for another guitarist to fill the vacancy left after Peter Green's resignation. Mayall contacted Taylor, and invited him to take Green's place. Taylor made his debut with the Bluesbreakers at the Manor House, an old blues club in North London. For those in the music scene the night was an event... "Let's go and see this 17-year-old kid try and replace Eric".

IT'S ONLY ROCK N' ROLL

BUT I LIKE IT ...







LIKE IT LIKE IT

YES I DO



Recorded in late 1973 and completed in the spring of 1974, "It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It)" is credited to the Rolling Stones songwriting team MICK JAGGER and KEITH RICKARDS, although future Rolling Stones guitarist RONNIE WOOD collaborated with Jagger on it. The song was originally recorded one night in a studio at Wood's house, "The Wick" in Richmond, London DAVID BOWIE  was backing singer to Jagger's lead, and Willie Weeks played bass with Kenney Jones on drums. The song on the album is similar to that original recording, with the Stones keeping the original rhythm track.
