Men may rise on stepping stones of their dead selves to higher things.
Adam Levine and I remade the Rolling Stones' classic Wild Horses, and it is right up my alley, that whole style. It has a style of its own but still stays very true to the classic arrangement, and I love it.
I am just a little tired of the Stones and the Beatles, and I don't care if I ever hear 'Louie Louie' ever again.
I'd rather break stones on the king's highway than hem a handkerchief.
I did tests on small stones before collecting and committing myself to the larger ones.
The Rolling Stones are so versatile, they're like the band version of that Infinite Dress they sell on QVC.
I was a huge Beatles fan. The Stones, Dylan. Later on, I got into Stevie Wonder, and Bill Withers - he's one of my heroes. Al Green, too.
The stones tear like flesh, rather than breaking. Although what happens is violent, it is a violence that is in stone. A tear is more unnerving than a break.
Success is not like a cake that needs to be divided. It's more like a heap of stones - a cairn. If someone is successful, they add a stone to the cairn. It gets very high and can be seen from all over the world. That's how I see it.
I love the Stones, but I've gone to a lot of gigs.
The Rolling Stones are violence. Their music penetrates the raw nerve endings of their listeners and finds its way into the groove marked 'release of frustration.'
Three or four stones in one firing will all react differently. I try to achieve a balance between those that haven't progressed enough and those about to go too far.
The only band that we have never played with but have always wanted to is the Rolling Stones.
I've grown up with my parents' music tastes, listening to Fleetwood Mac and the Rolling Stones.
I collect rocks from all over the world. I have a ring of stones that date to 3500 B.C. It's like a little Stonehenge.
I remember the evacuee children from towns and cities throwing stones at the farm animals. When we explained that if you did that you wouldn't have any milk, meat or eggs, they soon learned to respect the animals.
Punk rock really influenced me, the basic metal bands, Zeppelin, Stones and Floyd, and Southern rock bands. I think I was pretty well-rounded.
I'm the eldest at 51, and if the Stones can drag themselves around once more, then there's a few more albums in us.
I know Mick Jagger wouldn't tour without Keith Richards and call it the Rolling Stones.
The Stones were more dangerous than other bands of the Sixties. It looked like they had more fun than the Beatles - like they stayed up later.
I always say that I am very proud of the work that I did with the Rolling Stones and that I am also proud of what I have done with the Rhythm Kings.
I am much more my own man than I was when I was with the Stones.
I had this stereotypical view that black people apart from me probably threw stones and lived in huts.
The Stones were always exemplary of one of the best of all rock qualities: tightness. They have always been economical, the opposite of ornamental. Having a very clear idea of what they wanted to say they could go into a studio and make it all up on a three minute cut.
I have always worked with energy. Everything is energy. Buddhism. Christ teachings. These are foundation stones for a spiritual life.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
