Can we just take a moment and note that Harry Dean Stanton liked the Stones more than the Beatles?

Misguided, as is anyone who puts the Stones above the Beatles.

The Beatles couldn't play R & B very well, couldn't play soul, couldn't play country, couldn't play reggae, couldn't play funk, couldn't play jazz.

No wonder Harry Dean Stanton preferred the Stones.

No Elvis, Beatles, or the Rolling Stones.

Why nitpick among the lot about who's better than the others.

They're all shite, according the the only band that matters (remember them?).

I generally agree with your drunken post. I was even going to post Hand of Fate as an example of a totally stereotypical "Stones" song that is still extremely satisfying.

I like their "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" cover more than I should as well.

Keith's harmonies during the verses are a great touch.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

On my ride this morning, I started listening to Joel Selvin's book Altamont and laughed at this Spinal Tap-esque scene. The Stones are playing Hyde Park, their first show after Brian Jones got sacked/died:
Dressed in a white tunic, Jagger had the impossible task of quieting down the crowd at the start so he could read some unfathomably bathetic romantic poetry by Shelley, another tragic young Brit killed through misadventure:

He is not dead, he doth not sleep—
He hath awakened from the dream of life.


At the end, white butterflies brought in for the occasion were freed from their boxes, many of which had already suffocated, and what few remained expended their last breaths escaping captivity only to expire in midair above the band. Their carcasses littered the stage.
Walrus birth doesn't make good breakfast conversation!
