    Ron Woods is one of the most under estimated musicians I can think of. Him and Rod together were one of the greatest rock teams ever.

    Mr T Ate My Balls was the first or one of the very first internet memes.

    Sorry. I come from the 90's.

    Really? Everything I've read says they tracked with Boogie MkI's. And I never heard that Mick is on Some Girls.

    I remember hating it when it came out due to the disco influence. IIRC, Shakedown Street came out around the same time...The Dead went disco too...LOL. I like both albums now, in fact, we do "Miss You" every gig - super popular with people, believe it or not.

    Keith's vocal on "Before They Make Me Run" sounds like he keeps looking over his shoulder :eek:

    It was a pretty damn big event when Some Girls was released.

    People all over school were playing it, it was all over the radio.

    I was at a party when they played SNL, imagine like two hundred people crammed into a house trying to watch an old console tv!

    Shadoobe.

    i can’t believe anyone would dare to claim Wood is an average guitarist. Especially on a guitarist forum. Moronic.

    Some Girls literally jumped out of the speakers and grabbed you by the throat. You want disco, here’s Miss You mutha f er. You want punk ethos and energy, try not to bleed When The Whip Comes Down. Want some swampy, silky R&B styled rock guitars, groove on Beast of Burden.

    I believe this recording saved the career of The Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger and Woods lead the way. Bill Wyman shines.

    That video of Some Girls tour in Texas is very cool. Great opportunity to hear the difference between the Boogie and Fender amps. Most of the Some Girls tunes are through the Boogies, earlier material through the Fenders. Truly a feast of guitar tone. This shows Ron Wood at near his best, picking up the slack for a drug addled Richards.

    Definitely not my favorite (or even top 3?) Stones album imo but I'm in the minority there (and fine with it). I like it (mostly), don't love it.

    Ronnie Wood is great at what he does (no need to be a virtuoso).

    Great album. Got it when it was first released. Played the heck out of it. The album still holds up pretty well today :)

    I'd rather listen to this than most of the Stones output in the last 4 decades. This is how
    to construct a great pop song. :cool:

    I don't think your opinion puts you in the minority there, here, or outside of TGP.

    It's got some great songs, and was deliberately provocative as you'd expect from the Stones, but I don't think it quite slammed everyone in the: "We're still here and the world's greatest..." sense like Tattoo You did.

    As far as Some Girls being Top 3, and dethroning Exile or Sticky, etc., nah, but it's a very cool album. And Wood integrated perfectly, IMO.

    I come from WAY before then. My grandkids are from the 90s.
    And I still haven't caught up with much of the internet jargon ( and have admittedly not tried to).

    Indeed. Ron Wood is one of the gems from the rock era, and thank God he never followed some of the other guitar greats off into wanker hell and stayed true to his roots.

    Has some great stuff but I thought David Johansen’s solo LP of the same time period was a whole lot better for a Stones-style rock record.

    P.S. I attended the New Barbarians concert circa April ‘79 Crisler Arena Ann Arbor, MI, shortly after Keith got out of his Canada problem. Happened to have seats as high up and far away as possible. And from that vantage point we could clearly see the mirrored table by the drums with what looked like a overturned 5 pound sack of flour and around which the band gathered between songs. The stage was all red velvet and white ermine like something out of Poe’s Masque tale.

    Especially that bass line. Just funky as all get out.
