Brilliant! Masterpiece! Fantastic! Love it!

I’m not a huge Stones fan, but I could listen to “Gimme Shelter” for hours straight.

Mick isn’t exactly an artiste.

His career has been driven by his crotch and his pocket book, Keith being the most redemptive member of the two, and he cooked to the gills most of the time.

The Altamont Speedway murder took Mick to a place he seldom visits . . . his soul. This song born from that visit, and probably why it is the best in the Rolling Stones catalog.

One of the very few with real soul, though “Moonlight Mile” touches some important places . . .
