The Stones, pushing us through the Good & Bad Times

So, the Rolling Stones have been apart of my life since I was 18 years old. I met a girl at work who introduced me to Beast of Burden, and I have never been the same. I have enjoyed them in concert a few times and have always felt a little lost when they have come to town, and I was too busy to even notice that they had a tour. Today, I learned that the drummer has passed away. He was 80. The Stones, in the strangest way have reminded me of my parents. They were the same age as my parents and that always seemed so foreign to me. Could you imagine being Mick Jagger’s daughter?  Anyways I just wanted to reflect on some of their songs in my own silly little way.

I hear the sound of your precious beat

As long as I can remember, even in defeat

One of many, who can count them all

Is there a favorite? That simply brings me to recall

There was a time of “Waiting…

On a friend”

Played from the Florida coast

Up until the end…

“You can’t always get what you want” & “I miss you”

the most

“Beast of Burden”

we have all had one

may I lift up a toast?

No “Satisfaction” completely undone

“Sympathy for the Devil” was all or none?

“The Little Red Rooster” & “Wild Horses”, remember

Falling in love in late December?

“Time is on my side” sitting on the porch in Memphis

The tears that fell from “Far Away Eyes”

A “Heart of Stone” with much emphases.

Much Love Much Life
