I love those Keith Richards solo records, but it's not the Rolling Stones.
Mick Jagger can't even make a successful solo album, and the Stones are the biggest rock group that ever was.
I've been meaning to write about the Rolling Stones, but I am the furthest thing from a hipster rock journalist.
These days, the Rolling Stones still have an edge, but that fangs-out ferocity has mellowed considerably.
Whether it's a blatant homage or unconscious mimicry, the Rolling Stones have permanently, indelibly influenced how rock stars look and behave.
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.
Just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts.
When you look at that period when Warhol and the Velvets and the Stones were doing things, it was this intersection of art and music. And then it went away.

Jimmy Carl Black
If you're an American kid, you can't help but be influenced by Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and the Rolling Stones because they're always on the radio.
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've done the Rolling Stones eating each other.
I have always worked with energy. Everything is energy. Buddhism. Christ teachings. These are foundation stones for a spiritual life.
The stones in your driveway may have come from the slaves who spend all day breaking rocks because it's cheaper for the company to get them from India, where the labor is free. We are all connected. And we all have human value. That's what my work is about.
