  • Best Country Band Ever- The Rolling Stones?

    My favorite Stones albums are "Some Girls" and "Black and Blue".
    Each album has some cuts that certainly seem like country music.

    Songs like "Before They Make Me Run", "When The Whip Comes Down",
    "Memory Motel" and even "Crazy Mama" and "Hand of Fate".

    Strange dichotomy, they sound like country while todays "country" bands
    sound nothing at all like country.

        Mick Jagger, 1995: "I love Country music, but I find it very hard to take it seriously. I also think a lot of country music is sung with the tongue in cheek, so I do it tongue in cheek. The harmonic thing is very different from the blues. It doesn't bend notes in the same way, so I suppose it's very English, really. Even though it's been very Americanized, it feels very close to me, to my roots, so to speak."

        Mick Jagger, 2003: "The 'Country' songs we recorded later, like Dead Flowers on Sticky Fingers or Far Away Eyes on Some Girls, are slightly different (than our earlier ones). The actual music is played completely straight, but it's me who's not going legit with the whole thing, because I think I'm a blues singer not a country singer - I think it's more suited to Keith's voice than mine."

        He always wanted to be Merle.

          they are a great country blues band when they delve into that stuff. Like a more modern version of Hank Sr.

            Lol. Mock Jagger, the goofiest most spastic and funniest clown of a front man i'm the history of music, finds it hard to take country music seriously.

            I like the stones, I do, but seriousness?

            All that is missing for Mock is the red rubber nose and the big red floppy shoes.

                        The Stones are great! The worst they ever achieved in their music was "average". I can handle a little average mixed in with my awesome.

                        Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                        I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                          Here's one of their earliest country sounding riffs.

                          The opening riffs is total Western style. They do blend in R&B with it, but with the guitar part by itself, you'd get a whoop and a holler at Gilley's

                            Old country music wasn't country music... I was just plain ol rock n roll. Johnny Cash, George Jones, and what have you.

                            The Stones had swagger and early country music was all swagger and honkey tonk.
