    Ron Wood is an incredible musician - guys like Jeff Beck, Ronnie Lane, Rod Stewart, Ian McLagan, Charlie Watts and Keith Mothrafackin’ Richards all wanted him in their band.

    No Ron Wood, no ‘Maggie May’. Let that one sink in for awhile.

    Interesting album. Some good tracks... but Shattered is among my least favorite songs of all-time (bar none)

    I like it but there are others like Get your yayas out, Sticky Fingers, Goats Head Soup, and a vast assortment of greatest hits records as well. I feel it was one of their more "commercial" efforts. This is not a put down of the record or anyone, just expressing my sentiments on the matter. Love you all.

    Very good LP and it resonated with the times. A huge LP for the Stones.

    To quote the phrasing of a drummer buddy, they play 'loosey-goosey' on all the songs, which I kind of think as meaning, maybe a little unrefined/raw, but still strong and tight.
    I love it! Ronnie just seems to go for it- rocking out, playing steel too- fun record!

    I don’t get how anybody who truly loves The Stones can hate on this album.



    BTW this was still their Ampeg era - and Mick played guitar on almost every song.

    Great album, one of the last of their great studio LPs IMO. Solid top to bottom. Holds up over time incredibly well.

    As for slagging Woody - nice try! He's a fantastic guitarist who's done TONS of great recordings! I guess Jeff Beck just hires hacks!

    I think this is also exactly the reason why Ron Woods best work has not been with the Stones.
    In Faces he was doing really fantastic interesting rhythms interspersed with leads and fills, him doing all of it without another guitarist getting in the way. He had clear blue sky to work with. Ian McLagans keyboard style was the perfect match for Ron Woods approach to guitar. In the Stones he is playing around another guitarist, and not having to nearly work as hard. It is mostly little background fills and leads for him with not much chance for him to do the cool rhythm stuff he did in Faces.

    Saw the Some Girls tour in Fort Worth in '78. 3000 seat venue.
    They made a dvd of it, "Some Girls in Texas". Some great Stones rock and roll.
    However, it's hard for me to pick a favorite Stones era let alone favorite album or song.

    Had two cassettes in my ‘68 Firebird Convertible that summer.
    Some Gitls, Van Halen.
    Quart of Meyers Rum and a gallon of OJ in the trunk.
    Shattered all over , Windansea

    That summer seemed to last 2 years

    That's literally my favorite Stones track! Don't get me wrong, I know it's an outlier but I've OD'ed on the Stones hits!
