Imagine a music business where all the music press talked about, all day long, was cover bands of old rock and pop groups. Beatles cover bands, Rolling Stones cover bands, The Who cover bands, Led Zeppelin cover bands. Cover bands, cover bands, everywhere you go.
The only difference between The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, and Chubby Checker is that they get their music played on the radio.
I think my favorite song is by Led Zeppelin called ‘Good Times Bad Times,’ a Rolling Stones song called ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want,’ and every song The Beatles ever wrote.
I’ve been meaning to write about the Rolling Stones, but I am the furthest thing from a hipster rock journalist.
I want to live with a monk… and the Rolling Stones.
The only band that we have never played with but have always wanted to is the Rolling Stones.
It’s true that when I was younger and I first got interested in music, I used to read books about the Stones and the Beatles and how they listened to Muddy Waters and people like that when they were starting out, who are much less well known now than the Rolling Stones. The Stones really changed blues.
The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand, Bruce Springsteen, these are just some of the people who threatened to sue if we used their songs.
Growing up in the Libya of the 1970s, I remember the prevalence of local bands who were as much influenced by Arabic musical traditions as by the Rolling Stones or the Beatles. But the project of ‘Arabisation’ soon got to them, too, and western musical instruments were declared forbidden as ‘instruments of imperialism.’
The Rolling Stones… The Rolling Stones have a reflection to my music; I wouldn’t deny it. I think that’s honest.
We listened to a lot of Rolling Stones and Beatles records when we were recording. They were really good at not playing loud, but generating really big sounds out of everything.
While other girls swooned over The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, I worshipped Rudolf Nureyev and Isadora Duncan.
It’s like this – these five members have been influenced of course by other groups, because that’s where this generation‘s groups came from – an environment like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, and The Who. People like that.
I am a child of the ’70s, so I love classic rock – Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, and I also love Coldplay.
Mick Jagger has been an idol of mine since I was 10 years old. Through his music, he has taught me so much about rock n’ roll, but also about the blues and about the experience of live music, going to several Rolling Stones shows, growing up.
I am really into ’70s music, like The Rolling Stones, The Doors and what not.
I got an opportunity to be on a tribute to the Rolling Stones in the late ’90s and did a rockin’ version of ‘Paint It Black‘ – that’s probably the biggest stretch of anything that I’ve personally done. I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, but I understand where my parameters are.
If you look in my CD case, you’ll see it’s Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, now I can’t think of anyone else, but all that stuff.
There are some Rolling Stones songs that are just stunners.
As a kid, I loved classical music. Composers like Beethoven were like rock stars to me. Then there were the real rock stars: The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan.
You have to age gracefully. And that’s what I love about Keith Richards. That’s what I love about the Rolling Stones. They are aging gracefully. They are falling apart at the seams right before our eyes, and they are doing it gracefully. And that’s the most beautiful thing that we can do.
In grade one and two, I was definitely into heavy metal and Satanic rock music, bands that had attributes that were quote-unquote ‘Satanic,’ even things like the Rolling Stones with ‘Their Satanic Majesties Request‘ and ‘Sympathy for the Devil,’ but also like Motley Crue and Kiss and Alice Cooper.
I love everything from The Rolling Stones to Run-DMC to Nina Simone.
The Rolling Stones have been the best of all possible worlds: they have the lack of pretension and sentimentality associated with the blues, the rawness and toughness of hard rock, and the depth which always makes you feel that they are in the midst of saying something. They have never impressed me as being kitsch.
People listen to The Beatles, but while they were muscially influential, they weren’t culturally influential in quite the same way. You can go into the back of beyond in a little Indian village, and they will listen to Bob Marley. But they’re not going to be listening to The Beatles or The Rolling Stones.
The Rolling Stones are constantly changing, but beneath the changes they remain the most formal of rock bands. Their successive releases have been continuous extensions of their approach, not radical redefinitions, as has so often been the case with the Beatles.
Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and The Sex Pistols may come and go, but rebellion remains a key part of the rock n’ roll experience. However, that rebellion – the outgrowth of a youthful search for independence and identity – doesn’t always take the same form.
You’ve got the sun, you’ve got the moon, and you’ve got the Rolling Stones.
Whether it’s a blatant homage or unconscious mimicry, the Rolling Stones have permanently, indelibly influenced how rock stars look and behave.
At my Rolling Stones’ tour, the camera was a protection. I used it in a Zen way.
I love those Keith Richards solo records, but it’s not the Rolling Stones.
Wu-Tang is looked at like the Rolling Stones of hip-hop.
As a writer, I’ve always been the sum total of my influences, and those are all over the spectrum: Rachmaninov, the Who, the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Lesley Gore, Burt Bacharach and Leonard Bernstein, the Rolling Stones and the Small Faces.
I really felt like we were gonna be The Rolling Stones of heavy metal, and we could have been.
Those folks at Death Row were the Rolling Stones of their time.
