Rolling Stones Submit to Woke Mob, Drop Classic ‘Brown Sugar’ From Concerts
@Panzerhund @TimeBandit @Highlander @Auslander-Raus!

The Rolling Stones said this week they have dropped their classic concert standard ‘Brown Sugar’ from their set lists because of the controversial lyrics of what Keith Richards says is about “horrors of slavery.” The Stones embarked on their pandemic-delayed (now ironically misnamed) No Filter tour of North America last month in St. Louis.

The Stones’ Mick Jagger and Keith Richards spoke to the Los Angeles Timesabout the current tour, responding to a reporter observing the absence of Brown Sugar from the set lists (excerpt):
One song the band seems to have dropped from its set since the tour started up again is “Brown Sugar,” the Stones’ gleefully problematic early-’70s smash that opens on a “Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields.”

The Rolling Stones are all infected with demons but The Rolling Stones made that one good song on accident probably. One more good song than the Beatles ever made at least ...
I just read that Paul McCartney made a snarky comment about the Stones being a "blues cover band". His elderly jealousy is transparent, and amusing. The Rolling Stones will always be "cooler" among Boomers since they were the bad boys compared to the Beatles. "I want to be your man" vs "I want to hold your hand". Now will ALL of these degenerate Boomers please succumb to the vax so we can forget them?

Why don't they just retire instead?
Supposedly they made a deal with the devil and have to keep playing or they die.

The Doors > The Stones or the Beatles

Jim was the real deal.

Lennon and McCartney wrote 'I want be your man' for the Stones in a few minutes flat.

If you ponder that for a moment it's quite hilarious.

What best encapsulates everything that the Stones and the whole pop genre were/is about?

Your point still stands though.

Rolling Stones, Beatles, Doors, and (eventually) Zeppelin and Sabbath?

Yeah, they're alright I guess. I've had many listens.

Best shit outta the 70s was Parliament / Funkadelic, though -- and black boomers are collectively less insufferable than white boomers.

Change My Mind. :cool:
