Keith Richards Demonstrates His Famous 5-String Technique (Used on Classic Stones Songs Like “Start Me Up,” “Honky Tonk Women” & More)

For the guitarist, alternate tunings expand the sonic possibilities of the instrument. But where, say, a progressive metal player will add a seventh or eighth string, pitch everything down, and get technical, the opposite is the case with “open” tunings in folk and blues. They are an ideal basis for slide guitar and three-chord, 12-bar vamps, and became the perfect platform for Keith Richards, giving him the room he needed to translate the music of his folk heroes into the gritty, distor...

The Story of the Rolling Stones: A Selection of Documentaries on the Quintessential Rock-and-Roll Band

The Rolling Stones define the rock-and-roll band, as they have for nearly six decades now. Exactly how they’ve done so is thoroughly documented, not least by the band’s own expansive and still-growing catalog of songs and albums (all of which I happen to have spent the last few months listening through). But the story of the Stones continues to compel, told and re-told as it is in every form of media produced by each era through which the band has passed: books, articles, podcasts, and a...

Hear Marianne Faithfull’s Three Versions of “As Tears Go By,” Each Recorded at a Different Stage of Life (1965, 1987 & 2018)

When a 17-year-old Marianne Faithfull finished the final take of her 1965 hit “As Tears Go By” — penned by a young duo of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards as one of their first original songs — Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham “came and gave me a big hug,” she recalled “‘Congratulations darling. You’ve got yourself a number six,’ he said.” Richards remembered the song in his autobiography as “a terrible piece of tripe” and “money for old rope,” but it actually peaked at number 22 ...

Ritchie Valens’ concert in Pomona was among his last

Feb. 3, 1959 is the date Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, on tour together in the Midwest, died together in a small plane crash that had a giant impact on the popular imagination. “The day the music died,” as Don McLean later put it in “American Pie.” Valens, born Richard Valenzuela, grew up in Pacoima and was only 17 when he died. He left a small body of work, but it’s good enough to have made me a latter-day fan. It helps that my beloved Pomona plays a part. Ev...

The Rolling Stones Release a Long Lost Track Featuring Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page

The Rolling Stones are readying a re-release of their 1973 album Goats Head Soup in September, featuring demos and rarities and all sorts of goodies. Yesterday, they dropped the above song: “Scarlet.” Never bootlegged before, this firecracker of a track features Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page on guitar. The recording happened in October 1974, long, long after the recording of the Goats Head Soup tracks in Jamaica at Dynamic Sound Studios. In fact, they’d also finished recording It’s Only Rock...

Watch Florian Schneider (RIP) in Classic Early Kraftwerk Performances

The seventies, am I right….? Not that I can claim to have experienced it firsthand. But if I could have been a witness to any period in pop history it would have been the decade in which experimental fusion movements invaded rock and roll. There was Miles Davis and his protegees, of course. But there was much more besides: The Wailers’ fusion of rock, reggae, and soul; Fela Kuti’s fusion of Ghanaian high life, James Brown funk, and Nigerian jazz; Ryuchi Sakamoto’s fusion of indigenous, c...

The Rolling Stones Release a Timely Track, “Living in a Ghost Town”: Their First New Music in Eight Years

If there were ever a time to rush a pandemic-themed project to market, this is it. The move can seem well-intentioned, generous, or cynical, depending on the artist and the audience. The Rolling Stones proofed themselves against the latter criticism ages ago by building cynicism into their brand. They know what their audience wants, and they consistently deliver, decade after decade, playing the hits. When vague social commentary slips into a Stones tune, it vibrates at the same frequenc...

Covering Robert Johnson’s Blues Became a Rite of Rock ‘n’ Roll Passage: Hear Covers by The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Howlin’ Wolf, Lucinda Williams & More

American rock and roll originated from all corners of the country in the 1940s and 50s: from the exuberant gospel of the south, rollicking western swing of Texas, lean electric blues of Chicago, fast-paced Chicano music of L.A…. Truly a cultural melting pot, it represented the U.S to itself, amplifying and intensifying contemporary trends that continued right alongside the upstart new genre. But along with the deaths, arrests, and army stints of the music’s most famous stars at the e...

Stan Kenton: Back to Balboa

Back in the early 1980s, I headed out to Los Angeles to visit a friend in Huntington Beach for a few days. For the summer trip—my first to the L.A. area—I packed my Sony Walkman and a bunch of West Coast jazz tapes. They weren't to entertain. My motive was more anthropological. [Photo above of Balboa Island and pier] I wanted to listen to the music in its natural habitat while walking on the beaches of Hermosa, the beach on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, and Santa Monica. In other word...

The NRA Is Protecting Dangerous Men. It's Time To Close The "Boyfriend Loophole."

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to renew the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) on Thursday, with a new provision that closes the "boyfriend loophole" by extending existing gun restrictions to include current or former dating partners convicted of abuse or stalking charges. The vote was 263 to 158, with 33 Republicans voting for the measure.Right now, the law only prohibits firearm purchases for people who are "married to, lived with, or have a child with the victim" and who have been co...

Perfect Album: Something Else

I was going to post today about a "Hot Track" but decided instead to simply start a new feature called "Perfect Album." Yesterday I was listening to Johnny Richards' Something Else, one of my absolute favorite big-band albums. Something Else was recorded for Bethlehem in Hollywood on August 2 and 3, 1956. What made Richards (above) special as an arranger was his fiery romanticism and percussive moodiness. A highly progressive writer, Richards thought big. Really big. And he loved his sections ...

Bobby Sanabria: West Side Story

In August 1957, West Side Story opened at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre. The musical was fashioned after Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and was set on New York's Upper West Side in a neighborhood polarized by Puerto Rican and working-class white families. The show received positive reviews, and four years later the musical was adapted for the screen by director Robert Wise. Since the curtains went up on West Side Story's original stage production, virtually every major interpretation of the...

Liz Phair left, Mick Jagger right In 1971, post-Altamont fiasco, the Rolling Stones went into exile... not on some dusty small town drag, but on the French Riviera, where the band decamped for purposes of tax evasion and began recording in Keith Richards’ rented villa near Nice.

Everything You Need To Make Your Hair Color Last Longer

No matter what any department-store saleswoman tries to tell you, there are a lot of things in beauty you can afford to skimp on. Mascara, for one. Sheet masks, for another. Oh, and definitely hairspray — if there's a better one on this planet than Elnett, we've yet to discover it. But, with that said, it is generally wise to pay a little more for your hair color if you can.
