The Influence And Legacy of The ROLLING STONES … World’s Greatest Rock Band Ever !!


The Rolling Stones are widely recognized as one of the most influential rock n’ roll bands of all time. They have become the favorite band of generations and generations of fans who love rock n’roll music, from grandparents to parents to their kids, and even in some cases their children! It’s amazing how music can speak to all kinds of age groups, no matter how old it is.
The Rolling Stones are a British rock band that was formed during the early 1960s. The band we know today consists of four members, but the original line-up was made up of six members in total – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman, Ian Stewart and Charlie Watts. Jagger and Richards have almost always been known as the anchors of the band, as they are the chief songwriters and faces of the band, and really lend a lot of personality and spunk to the group. The band first became popular in their native Europe, but as rock n’roll music spread across the world, particularly British groups, they gained mass popularity in the United States as well. The band has released a whopping, unbelievable 22 albums in total, with over 200 million copies sold worldwide – and they continue to produce new music! Their last new studio album with brand new, previously unreleased content was A Bigger Bang, released in 2005.
When the Rolling Stones first came out, they were marketed and sold to listeners as the antithesis of the Beatles, in an effort to set themselves apart from the equally, if not more popular group who were also British and played rock music. They wanted to be seen as the wilder, crazier and more independent band, as if the Beatles were a more manufactured pop group than anything else. The bands manager also got rid of Ian Stewart as a member of the group, because he felt his image did not fit the Rolling Stones look. While the Stones originally recorded others’ songs in an effort to impress fans and garner popularity, it wasn’t until they began singing, playing and recording their own original material that they really took off.
The Rolling Stones’ first big song was ‘Satisfaction’, which spent a month at the top of the music charts, establishing them as a serious act with great music. They continued to release chart-topping hits and establish themselves as one of the greatest rock acts, touring around the world and releasing records throughout the 1960s. They also cemented their rebellious, bad boy image with incidents of drug use, overdoses, hard partying and arrests wherever they went. They also had their fair pick of beautiful women, as women of all ages and nationalities wanted a piece of this famous, good looking rock band. In 1969, one of the main members who had been a large part of the band since the beginning, Brian Jones, drowned in his pool. They played a free concert in his memory.For the past nearly 50 years, the Rolling Stones have been a huge influence on rock n’ roll music and popular culture.

RADIO

Radio? I Love it .. Many take it for granted, The Radio. Not Me .. It’s amazing, the Radio .. Believe me, when the Radio first came out, people did not take it for granted .. It was the marvel of the day. The first major use of the Radio to the American general public began in the early 1920’s .. America’s first radio stations popped up in the year 1920, but it took a couple years for the general population to get and use them in any great numbers. But once the radio did kick in, it was the greatest thing of the day. People could listen to music, news, skits, and comedic programming. The Radio was a Big and instant Success, and the American Public just loved it.

The 1930’s were a grand hey-day of Radio as it didn’t have TV to contend with. Some popular Radio Shows of the day, were; Roy Rogers and Hop AlongCassidy (Western),Jack Benny (Comedy), Batman, Flash Gordon and Superman, all Super Heroes.

For me, I remember always loving Radio as a very young child, ever since I could remember anything. I especially loved listening to it as we would drive in one of my dads cars; a Plymouth Fury, Packard (The Last Packard ever made), or Fabulous 1958 Cadillac Eldorado. back Then, I especially loved; The Beatles, The Supremes, and The Four Seasons of nearby Bellville, New Jersey, “Sherry! Sherry Baby!”

All these years, Radio has never wavered. It’s always there, still and always great. Always providing great news, info, and Great Music. Well Great Music that is, if you listen to great music and not a station that plays “Horrible Crap Rap hip Hop.” Now that’s not good, and unfortunately it’s out there on some radio stations that cater too those with the God Awful Taste who enjoy listening to “Crap” Rap.

 Well, let’s get off that subject, and on to all the Good and great Music that Radio has given us over the years: Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, R&B, Pop, Jazz, Classical and more. Before TV it was a big thing to listen to Boxing Matches on the Radio, The Preakness, Kentucky Derby, Baseball, Basketball, and Football games, and listening to sports on the radio is still pretty big.

  Yes radio gives us a lot. It’s quite versatile, and with sports, Talk Radio, and the News, it’s biggest source and popularity is through music. Still, you ride in your car, you’ve got the radio on, it enhances the experience, of driving that is. Music on the radio has enhanced millions of experiences over the years, especially for lovers, young and old who have Necked (Made Out), and Fallen in Love with Music from the Radio, and please “No Rap.”
