Bad Boys of the 60's

The Beatles took over the decade of the 60's after 1964, when the "British Invasion" landed in the U.S., and the " Fab Four" had more #1 hits than any other group. But the "bad boys" of the 60's were also from Britian; Mick Jaggar and The Rolling Stones had "attitude". While the Beatles were sweet, smooth and sensitive, The Rolling Stones were arrogant, seductive and seemed just a little dangerous. The crowds, especially the young women, loved them. They had several #1 hits, including "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", "Ruby Tuesday", "Paint It Black" and "Honky Tonk Women". Their hits continued through the 70's and 80's, and they still do sold-out reunion concerts. Some of the Rolling Stones' songs which never made it to #1, but are cuts from their early albums are some of their best songs, and are not as well known.

Enjoy a very young Mick Jaggar on these videos:
"Play With Fire", "As Tears Go By", "Get Off My Cloud", and "It's All Over Now".

With the Rolling Stones.... it will never be over!
