      Guy was like a clock - had amazing timing. I had no idea he was 80.

      oh and he was an avid collector of Civil War Antiques which always stuck me a bit odd.

        Obligatory: He and Wyman were one of the greatest rhythm sections in history. Who else could make this work?

          The Stones were the band that turned me into a music lover - the greatest bar band in the world, even if you happened to catch them in an arena. I was fortunate to see them live twice, and that first time, in particular, was one of the best shows I've ever been to.

          Cranking Beggar's Banquet over here in memory.

            The guy had a jazz background, and it showed in the endless amount of swing in those Stones records. I recall someone saying that the Stones could be hard to do right in cover bands because that slippery groove was hard to catch. RIP.

              I think his most impressive accomplishment is being, "The only rock drummer Ginger Baker never talked shit on".

              It's amazing watching his documentary and he is talking shit on everyone from Keith Moon to John Bonham and then he is like "Oh, Charlie Watts is cool, I respect that guy".

              Not a big RS fan but I listen to Flashpoint quite a bit. Highwire is a really cool song and massively underrated.



              As far as their classic era songs go, "Play with Fire" cannot be topped. It's criminal the Priest cover of it has never been released or leaked. That song is super good.

                So sad….he will always be a legend. I was fortunate to grow up with parents who loved the Stones and it rubbed off on me quite a bit growing up and to this day one of the greatest rock and roll bands ever. RIP

                  That speaks worlds about his jazz background, you know.

                        If you forget, you can also look in a Curt Kobain thread.

                          Eh, joke's on me anyway, the whole band died in a bus accident shortly after recording the Black album, and have been replaced by crisis actors ever since.

                            We can at least agree that the Ouija guitar is the coolest idea ever, right?
