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...

The Rolling Stones Jam with Muddy Waters for the First and Only Time at Chicago’s Legendary Checkerboard Lounge (1981)

Whatever marketing materials may claim, the Rolling Stones did not just happen upon Buddy Guy’s Checkerboard Lounge on Chicago’s South Side (before it closed, reopened in Hyde Park, then closed again for good) on a night when Muddy Waters happened to be there in 1981. And they did not spontaneously get invited to jam, as it seems, when they “climbed over tables” to get onstage with their hero and blues legends Buddy Guy and Junior Wells. A chance meeting, of course, would have been magic...

Watch the Rolling Stones arranging and recording Sympathy for the Devil

This 42-minute excerpt is from Jean-Luc Godard's 1969 film, Sympathy for the Devil. It shows the Rolling Stones in 1968, at Olympic Studios, rehearsing, arranging, and recording their iconic track of the same name. It's fascinating to see the creative evolution of the song, from a Dylanesque folk number to the riotous number we know today. — Read the rest

B.B. King Plays “The Thrill is Gone” with Slash, Ron Wood & Other Legends

How many generations of guitarists have come and gone since B.B. King emerged on the Beale Street blues scene in the late 1940s? 60s blues-rock giants, 70s hard rockers, 80s metal shredders… at least two generations between B.B. and Slash, who is probably himself a guitar grandfather by now. Whether they know it or not, every rock and blues player descends from the Kings of the blues (B.B., Albert, Freddie, and guitarists who bore the title but not the surname). Slash knows it well. ...

See Devo Perform Live for the Very First Time (Kent State University, 1973) Kent State University is known as the site of two important events in American culture: the massacre of May 4, 1970, and the formation of Devo. When the National Guard shot thirteen students at a Vietnam War protest, it signaled to many the end of the youth-driven optimism of the late 1960s. It also motivated a group of musically inclined undergraduates to consolidate the band/conceptual art project they’d premised on the idea of “de-evolution....

Michael Giacchino Shares His Favorite Music: St. Vincent, Paul McCartney, and Much More

Michael Giacchino has a swanky workplace. Due to the pandemic, the Oscar-winning film composer is working from his personal studio, which looks straight out of the 1950s at first glance – it’s filled with instruments, warm colors, and nostalgia. Childhood toys from Spider-Man, Star Trek, Speed Racer, and Planet of the Apes are present in his cabinets, which help keep the composer inspired. Earlier this year, Giacchino went into his studio to produce his debut album, “Travelogue Vol 1,” along wi...

A Visual History of The Rolling Stones Documented in a Beautiful, 450-Page Photo Book by Taschen

There is a certain look that screams rock ‘n’ roll—one part outlaw biker, one part psychedelic magician, one part pimp, one part circus performer…. But where did it come from? We could trace it back to Link Wray, Little Richard, Elvis, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. But the Rolling Stones refined and perfected the look, as they refined and perfected the slurred, shambling barroom blues that became a signature sound at their peak. Even punks who rejected the rock star image couldn’t help looking like Ke...

Berlin’s Terri Nunn talks ‘Top Gun,’ gratitude, new album

Terri Nunn and the band Berlin were already well along the path to superstardom when they were asked to record a song for the 1986 Tom Cruise film “Top Gun.” The song was the Giorgio Moroder produced-and-composed “Take My Breath Away,” which turned out to be incredible vehicle for Nunn’s memorably breathy vocals and the New Wave band’s lush synth-pop sound. Cover to “Strings Attached.” (August Day) It also turned out to be one of the biggest tunes of the year, taking Berlin to the top of the...

The Number Ones So Far

In January of 2018, I was killing time at the gym while my kids were finishing up a swimming class, and I was idly clicking around Tom Ewing’s Popular, a writing project that’s been going on for well over a decade. Ewing has been writing funny, incisive, personal reviews of every song ever to hit #1 on the UK charts, and it’s been one of the best things on the internet for a long time. I found myself wondering about #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, our own American pop chart. Was there a lis...
