10,000 Hits Of Anything Has GOT To Be Good For You! (A Special Thank You Message To Subscribers)

Hello all of you lucky and loyal subscribers, My favorite words today are “ten thousand.” As in, 10,000 spins of a favorite record on the turntable. As in, Land of 10,000 Dances. If you do anything 10,000 times, it’s gotta be good, right? With that number and what it means in mind, today I’ve got 10,000 reasons […]

TAYLOR MADE STONES: Happy Birthday To The Other Mick

January 17 is always a special day for us here in the surround-sound music den at “RPM: Life In Analog.” It allows us to officially celebrate what we pretty much celebrate every other day by marking the birthday of one of rock’s greatest, and yet most underrated guitarists, whose playing you’ve surely heard for a little group […]

REVOLUTION AND STREET FIGHTING MEN: The Beatles, Stones, and The (Myth) Making Of Rock’s Greatest Rivalry

Happy accidents of timing and circumstance can produce exquisite results. Just like a sleep walking Keith Richards waking up one night in 1965, picking up his guitar, and tape recording a half-dreamt nocturnal idea – a little riff that would turn into “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” – my plan to interview John McMillian, historian and author of […]

He’s Young Yet: Gimme Mick! (Apologies To Gilda Radner…And Mom)

Since we’re commemorating the 70th birthday of Mr. Jumpin’ Jack Flash himself, I thought I would break out one of the reviews I’ve written when I’ve covered one of their many late-era tours. I chose this one because it has one of my favorite leads and opening paragraphs I’ve ever written about the Stones.  It has […]

7 For 70: Happy B-Day Mick! (Or, The Seven Best Stones Albums Not Named “Exile On Main St.”)

Just in case you missed it (and you very well may have since I initially posted when I was wet behind the ears and first learning how to work this newfangled blog), I wrote a lengthy feature on one of the Rolling Stones’  masterworks, “Exile On Main St.” And  of course then posted a nearly-as-long-opening intro/preamble to my piece (hey, that’s how […]

A Banquet of Butterflies for Brian, and the Dawn of the Midnight Rambler

For those who couldn’t make (or afford) the Rolling Stones’ return to Hyde Park in London this month after a mere 44-year hiatus, here’s a little something that’s far cheaper, but just might be as long: my review essay for the cool live music blog and website, Collectors Music Reviews (CMR to friends like you), of a […]

STILL A BEAUTIFUL BUZZ: Strolling Down Exile On Main Street

Coinciding with the deluxe reissue a few years back of the Rolling Stones’ “Exile On Main St.”, I pitched a piece to The Boston Globe on what that blearily beautiful sprawling double album meant to me growing up amid corporate FM radio of the late 1970s and early ’80s, and how it (and the Stones) helped […]
