Rick Keene Music Scene – The Rolling Stones Celebrate Fifty Years of Sticky Fingers …

‘Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, sister Morphine, when are you coming round again?’

Hard to believe it has been fifty years since The Rolling Stones released the third album within a foursome of discs that cemented the band as ‘The Greatest rock n Roll Band in the World.’

Released on the 23rd of April 1971 – the album contains all the elements which made up The Rolling Stones. Beggars Banquet was a very folk-ish / Country album, Let It Bleed leaned more towards their roots in The Blues and Exile on Main Street also relied heavily on Blues – inspired swampy Rock type songs.

Sticky Fingers had everything. Country classics in the form of ‘Wild Horses’ and ‘Dead Flowers’, Blues gems with ‘I Got The Blues’ and ‘You Gotta Move’ , authentic Rock n Roll with ‘Brown Sugar’ and ‘Bitch’, a Jazzy / R&B groove within ‘Can’t You Hear Me Knocking’ and ballads as strong as any Jagger and Richards have penned with ‘Moonlight Mile’ and ‘Sister Morphine’.

If the world was still wrestling with the age old question ‘The Beatles or The Stones?’ Sticky Fingers went a long way to tilting music fans toward the bad boys of Rock n Roll.

Please have a listen below to some information about one of The Rolling Stones’ best albums and listen to a few selected tracks.

Rick Keene Music Scene – George Thorogood To Make Grand Ole Opry Debut

Bad – to the bone.

“I’m incredibly humbled by the honor and excited to connect with this audience,” says Thorogood. “I’ll be stepping onto the Grand Ole Opry stage with my guitar to share some great American music.”

“Of course the Opry showcases the best in country music to fans around the world each week, but we also appreciate opportunities to welcome guests from other genres and walks of life, including Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, Academy Award-winning actors and directors, and even a U.S. President,” said Opry Executive Producer Dan Rogers. “George Thorogood is an Opry fan himself, and we’re all in for a great show.”

In a special collaboration, a unique “SiriusXM Road to George Thorogood’s Opry Debut” will be rolled out including involvement across a wide array of SiriusXM channels discussing this historic moment. Thorogood will be a guest on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country (ch. 60) and Volume (ch. 106) sharing his one-of-a-kind perspective on music and what this Opry debut means to him.

“When I was growing up, I’d hear Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins on the radio alongside Ray Charles and Bo Diddley,” George Thorogood says. “Music didn’t need to be labeled ‘country’ or ‘rock’. If it was good music, you enjoyed it. I loved it all.”

And for an artist whose worldwide hits include a cover of Hank Williams’ ‘Move It On Over’ – as well as self-penned classics like ‘I Drink Alone’ (a song he originally wrote for George Jones) and the ultimate badass anthem ‘Bad To The Bone’ – it’s clear that George Thorogood remains one of the most enthusiastically unique interpreters of what can only be categorized as American music.

Craft Recordings recently released a comprehensive reissue of George Thorogood and The Destroyers’ fiery concert album Live in Boston, 1982. The 27-track Live in Boston, 1982: The Complete Concertincludes 12 previously unreleased tracks (including performances of “Bad to the Bone,” “Who Do You Love?,” as well as the country classics they have made their own including Hank Williams’ “Move It On Over” and T.J. “Red” Arnall’s  “Cocaine Blues”). 

Tickets for other in-house audience Opry shows are available now at opry.com.
