    On our last tour we had an 8 hour drive in the truck between venues... My friend and I decided to listen to one song the whole time just to see if we could. We listened to Shattered 109 times in a row.

    I can definitely say I hate that song now...

    But as an album, Some Girls is amazing.

    For all of you who hate Some Girls, hey it could have been "Got It Live If You Want It." The Worst Stones Album. :eek: :brick
    Ever..

    How can you not like Ronnie?

    His playing at the LA Forum 76 show is killer.

    Wasn't this album Ronnie's first album with them? :confused

    I can't say the whole line in 2019, but Mick didn't have enough jam :eek:

    'Before They Make Me Run' is so dang good! A lot of the other songs on the record have too much weird chorusy/phasery sorta production choices for me, but not a bad record at all.

    I was fortunate enough to be @3 rows back for that gig. Amazing show! There's a decent sound board audio recording available as "Garden State '78" for those curious.

    They’re all using Ampeg V4s for the Ft. Worth show save for Mick who’s using a Boogie.

    I had the most bizarre TGP argument about "Shattered" about 6 months ago. The guy dismissed it as "synth and drum machine" disco crap. We went back and forth for a while and I could not convince him that the song is played with a standard drums, bass, two guitar arrangement.

    You know I haven’t watched it in a while, you’re probably right about the Ampegs, but I do think there are more than one Boogie on stage. Pulling out the disk now!

    Yep! I remember when SNL was that big of a deal, and super cutting edge for it's time. I also remember kids huddled around TV's at party's watching it as though they'd waited all week for It.
    You sure do see a lot of change in a Lifetime!

    The one thing Ronny is terrible at, is managing $!
    i read his book and It's great, but He squandered more $ then You would think possible.
    He would have millions, and then be flat broke and begging for advances. He was even making I think 2k a week playing bass for Jeff Beck in the 60's! Peter Grant was their Manager (Zep).
    Ronny tells funny story's about Beck's tantrums, like when they played a show and had issues with the PA, so Beck fired the drummer!

    This is why the Stones are legends. They made better disco than any disco artists could!

    Hey Negrita on Black and Blue is credited as “Inspiration by Ron Wood” so I think he is on at least that song for the album. Some Girls is his first full album.

    Oh okay. I always just assumed since he was on the album cover (the inside portion of it with Charlie Watts).

    Well as Rick James said; cocaine is a helluva drug.

    For a generation, they epitomized what was going on, even caricaturizing the excess. 1978 was the last time they were current.

    Although Ron Woods is very different stylistically than Mick Taylors, I think he brought something to the Rollings Stone that they needed at that time. They did the indulgent, white blues rock thing for quite a few years, and I think they wanted to explore other styles.

    As mentioned above, I have also heard that Mick Jaggers plays guitar on Some Girls.

    Not one of my favorites, either. I felt they had lost the rock feel and were way too heavy into country harmony - and not even that good at it.

    My favorite was let it Bleed, and the earlier rock/blues hits from AM radio days.
