Mick Jagger’s iPad (video)

An old college roommate (Oberlin, ’71) found this newish Rolling Stones recording on YouTube and sent it my way.

My take: Hard to believe we were listening to the Stones in our dorms more than half a century ago. Talk about an enduring brand! And they’re still rocking. At least most of them. RIP Charlie Watts.

    My gym leans more to being a sweat gym of free weights playing loud music in the background. Often the music is from the old rock bands of the 60’s with whom I grew up listening. That period is essentially 50-60 years ago. Often between sets I hear a song playing from that period. Sometimes I pause and absorb the music like a sponge. There’s a reason they’re still playing that music today, and it is not because of aging baby boomers like me who may be the targeted audience. It is because music from that period over a half century ago is as “fresh” today as it was back then. That’s speaks volumes about music from that era.

      I’m always amused at the music today’s writers, producers, directors choose for their film soundtracks. So much of it remains from the ‘60s and early ‘70s.

      Speaks volumes about the creativity and talent (the variety in musical style was terrific) from that era. During the ‘90s everything seemed to get homogenized.

    If it’s truly good, it will persevere and prevail.

    I’m still “discovering” Sinatra. Have been since a kid.

    Stones forever. RIP Charlie.

    (BTW— Get good sound playback, y’all. Let your heart feel it.)
