Maybe in 2020 the Rolling Stones They haven’t done what they do best: tour. But for this reason it cannot be said that Their Satanic Majesties have stood still.
While the advance of Covid-19 forced them to postpone part of the ‘No Filter Tour’ tour in March, in May the Rolling Stones surprised us with the publication of a new song, “Living In A Ghost Town”, that could have ended during confinement.
It was the beginning of the promise of a new studio album, which was finished off with the reissue of ´Goats Head Soup’, where they recovered unreleased songs like “Criss Cross” O “Scarlet”, with the collaboration of Jimmy Page.
The facet of the direct was marked by his participation in the online macro festival ‘Together At Home’ as well as the edition of his album live ‘Steel Wheels Live’, recorded in New Jersey in 1989 and which includes among others the participation of Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin and Eric Clapton.
The Rolling Stones also decided in 2020 to entertain us while we stayed at home with the edition of free online concerts from their YouTube channel, beginning with a sounded tribute to Latin America.
2020 for Rolling Stones also brought moments of tension, like when threatened to put Donald Trump on trial, and celebration, with the recent 77 years premiered by Keith Richards.
Mick Jagger decided to crown this busy year with a recent show on British radio Planet Rock, where he took control for an hour to perform and jam on some of his favorite classic and newer songs.
Starting with “I´m So Happy I Cry”, from the new funk rock revelation Fantastic Negrito, Mick Jagger played classics that influenced the early Rolling Stones What “Johnny B. Goode” O Freddie King, which he said is “A great guitarist.”
He also traveled to the roots of acoustic blues, claiming the figure of women with the voice of Memphis Minnie on “Has Anyone Seen My Man”, which he described as “The queen of delta blues. He was very smart in clothes, but he could drink, fight and spit like any of the toughest guys. “
He told some anecdote than another, like the one he had with the bluesman Joe Louis Walker, of who punctured “Too Drunk To Drive Drunk”: “I shared the stage with him once. He is a very good person, he gave me a guitar, I suppose to motivate me to be a good guitarist”.
In the field of new artists, he opted for Alabamas Shakes, whose voice stood out Brittany Howard, “A great blues vocalist. This song, “Always Right”, I like very much”.
I could not miss the show Mick Jagger one of the great influences of the Rolling Stones, Buddy Guy, from whom he rescued a relatively recent blues with “Please Don´t Leave Me” from his album ‘Sweet Tea’: “A lot of people didn’t like it, but I loved it. It sounds like they tried to take Buddy back to Mississippi to record again in an old cabin. Well that’s what they did, and they did it with local musicians. If you listen to the song, you will see that the guitar tuning is below normal, giving it a dark sound ”.
“Strange Things” from Sister Rosetta – “A gospel singer who wanted to switch to singing the blues. This was his best single, where he questioned what was going to happen to the world after the war “ – O “Chicago” from Luther Allison were other of the songs that sounded.
Mick Jagger ended 2020 sharing an acoustic blues of Fred Mcdowell, “Drop Down Mamma”, of whom he recalled: “The Stones did the version of“ You´ve Got To Move ”“, and the “Pride & Glory” that Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded with Albert King on “An album in duet that they recorded in Canada, it’s a crazy album.”
