Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the world
« on: September 04, 2015, 08:38:18 AM »
Once upon a time the Rolling Stones were given this distinction.
In point of fact I personally wouldn't dispute it.
At the height of their powers they were an amazing thing to see live.
Just a juggernaut of relentless power.
From the 72 tour at their best. A great sound board recording. Great show.
And here's a time capsule for Stones fans.
The Dick Cavette special about the NYC part of the infamous 72 tour.
Even includes the weird old commercials. Weird Square world 'vs' Stones world.

Well now the Grammy committee has actually had a debate about the status as "Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the world".

Regarding the Stones' initial allure, Kramer said the band's effect on his generation "was like a tsunami." He recalls going to see the 1964 film The T.A.M.I. Show at a Detroit-area drive-in, and being so affected by the Stones and James Brown's performances, he returned the next five nights.

"There was no cynicism yet," said Kramer of the American youth who fell in love with the British rockers. "We weren't hardened. We had the certainty of youth.

"It was very exciting. The way they sounded, the way they looked, the way they dressed. Every generation is looking for their voice, their music, their artists, their clothing styles. The Rolling Stones [were] my generation. I embraced them completely."

Santelli observed, "For a lot of us, it was the first time we got to hear blues." Like many other fans, Santelli traced the composers' names he saw under the Rolling Stones' song titles and learned about the music's origins.

"The real power was that they created their own authenticity," added Fricke. "They actually devised a style that was true to the sources and respectful of the sources. They paid a great service to their inspirations by acknowledging them."
