    September 10, 2005



    I'm a big Stones fan, but it's probably just because my dad played their albums all the time. I remember sneaking into his bathroom to read a Playboy that had a huge article on the ups and downs of the band that wouldn't die when I was in third grade. After that, I played "Some Girls" every day after school until even my Dad begged me to stop.


    I was never a Stones fan. I've loved the Beatles for years, but never the Stones. Maybe it's just that my older brother listened to Beatles and Beach Boys.


    LOL!! the best part for me was the end where she didn't know Maroon 5 and the singer got pissed. that was priceless, since *supposedly* they are the hottest thing since sliced bread right now.


    Yeah .. gotta confess, I'm with her. NO idea who Maroon 5 are. I've probably heard one of their songs on the radio, but for all I know they're a samba band.

    Well...I AM a Stones fan.

    All I have to say is, you people better never use the drinking fountain in front of me. ;)


    I know better than to bend over with you in the vicinity, Bucky.

    You ARE wise, Nilbo.
    Two words: rolling pin.


    I grew up hearing the Stones by default: my brother's were born back in early 1950something. They had long hair and used to drink weird juices from the Supernatural Juice Bar while listening to The Who or the Moody Blues, or the Stones. I wasn't into them, but I really liked THe Beatles.

    Had a good laugh over her comment about Maroon 5, a big grin slid across my face when I read that one. The only reason I know who they are is because my kids listen to them every so often.

    I still can't believe the old boys are still touring.

    I laughed out loud twice, causing my husband to say, "What's so funny?" and then I had to read what was so funny *to* him and then he laughed.

    Yet another thing we have in common.
    I'm not a Rolling Stones Fan, and the Beatles are my favorite band.
    I'm seeing Paul McCartney September 30th at Madison Square Garden!


    What sub-mis said. Exactly. #1 and #2 are like moments in a song that make one shiver with delight.

    I'm with you on the Stones thing. I think I saw them once, but I can't remember for sure. Although some of my favourite songs are by them, I see them more as an massively promoted business with a huge and fervently loyal market base, one eager to buy their urine on e-Bay. (Oh sorry, that was someone else a little more current, but like you said about the machine ...)

    I still admire them for lasting so long in an industry riddled with equal and better talent.

    The P has spoken.

    I guess I'm too young (HAHAHAHAHA!) to understand the whole concept of YOU MUST CHOOSE EITHER THE BEATLES OR THE STONES, NEVER BOTH!
    Um, dude, it's like apples and oranges. The Beatles bein' Apples, of course.
    It's like, sometimes I want classical music, sometimes I want snarling punk with little structure. Sometimes I'm in a Beatles mood, sometimes I'm in a Stones mood, sometimes I say fuck 'em both and play some John Lee Hooker.

    I refuse to be pigeonholed.

    Without lubricant.


    Well, darlin', it was a different time. Kids today are choosing between Xtina and Britney, or between the Foo Fighters and Eminem. And sometimes the twain shall meet and sometimes it doesn't. Back then, we chose sides ... were you a Rolling Stones fan or a Beatles fan ... or were you REALLY a geek and went for the Dave Clark Five or Herman's Hermits?

    We'd listen to both ... but there was always a preference. And while my record collection included all the above, plus some Jimi Hendrix and Cream and Mamas and Papas and, for God's sake, even The Hollies ... I was never really a Stones fan.


    I'm with the apples/oranges crowd. Can't we all just get along? I don't wanna have to choose just one! I hate making decisions! Oops, I think that wasn't about the Beatles/Stones for a second there.


    Did you ever have to make up your mind? Pick up on one, and leave the other behind? It's not always easy, and not always kind.
