The 70's probably wasn't the best decade for the Rolling Stones (especially when they flirted with disco in the mid-to-late 70's), but a website about the 70's, and rock music in general, would not be complete without a Stones page. Besides, even though the 70's may not have been their best decade, they did still manage to put together a few (quite a few actually) hits during the 70's. A few notable songs, are Wild Horses, Brown Sugar, Angie, Heatbreaker, Beast of Burden, Tumblin' Dice, to name a few.
The story goes that the Stones entered the 70's virtually broke. How could that happen to a band that was so successful throughout the 60's, rivaling the Beatles in popularity. Most of it was apparently due to bad management, but one would guess there were a few excesses along the way as well.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ron Wood are the remaining four members of the Rolling Stones. Their concerts in recent years have been major theatrical productions, and they still put on a terrific show.
Trivia, the background tongue is the Original Red Tongue by John Pasche ( Sticky Fingers , 1971)
