    Mick and Keef do occasionally write some good music, don’t they?

    Its actually a fairly pedestrian ballad type for the Stones. Interestingly, a VDL song – You Got Me Rockin’ Now – which originally met with mixed to poor reception has become one of the bastions of opening number songs they do. Now THAT’S rock and roll.

    Best listening – live: Charlie Watts drumming as he deaftly weaves in and out from simple pile driving rhythm support to flourishes at appropriate inflection points during Richards straightforward solo. Take a listen. I know jazz drumming is his first love…….but that’s a R&R drummer.
