Friday Night Videos--All Stones Edition

Sphere: Related Content

The Rolling Stones are a band that did more for rock than any other band before or since. The Beatles were singing about yellow submarines and the Stones were singing about the dark underbelly of life with Paint It Black and Mother's Little Helper.

They are a great studio band that, to me, never achieved that electricity live after the 70's.

Here's some Stones classics:

Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker), a song that showed just how tuned into the dark side the Stones were:

Next the epic Gimme Shelter where Mick and the boys showed just how good they could be live:

Next we have a great moment at the Concert for NYC in the aftermath of 9/11 where Mick and Keith sang Salt of the Earth for the Police, Firefighters and other emergency responders:

And finally we have the classic Angie with Mick sounding excellent:
