The Rolling Stones

I got into The Stones a bit late because obviously when they first started making waves I was about 2 years old.  The Stones struck a chord with me because they were so much more, for want of a better word, dangerous than the Beatles.  They were rebels, antiheroes, bad guys and they appealed to me in a way that The Beatles didn’t.  Like Fender vs. Gibson, Martin vs. Taylor, BMW vs. Mercedes you pick sides in life and when it came to The Beatles vs. The Stones there was no contest in my mind, Stones for life.

The Rolling Stones could probably be called the greatest band of all time, they are probably the oldest surviving band.  They have always been with us in some form or other, their album output is consistent and they have been touring the world breaking attendance and many would say ticket price records for over 50 years.  As old as they are and as painful as it is to watch your heroes age they are a Rock ‘n’ roll institution.  This is the band that you would show alien invaders if you wanted to show them the epitome of Rock and Roll.
