CHARLIE WATTS - Who played the song

CHARLIE WATTS - Der den Song spielte

Late in the afternoon of August 24, it was announced that Charlie Watts, drummer for the Rolling Stones since 1963, had died in a London hospital at the age of 80. For a moment the music world stood still, and not only Stones fans knew that with the silent drummer one of the greats had gone. The unusually many and warm-hearted expressions of grief from colleagues from all musical genres confirmed this. Farewell to a gentleman who became a worldwide revered legend.

STONES FAN MUSEUM LÜCHOW - Rock-'n'-Roll-Fata-Morgana in the cultural nowhere

STONES FAN MUSEUM LÜCHOW - Rock-’n’-Roll-Fata-Morgana im kulturellen Nirgendwo

The Rolling Stones sing "Living In A Ghost Town" in their first new song in eight years and they certainly don't mean Lüchow. The small town in Lower Saxony is not a ghost town, not even in Corona times. But there's not much going on here either. There is tranquillity instead of hustle and bustle, you look in vain for pulsating life. Nobody here will see the biggest pandemic damage in the fact that the cultural life has collapsed and concerts are cancelled. Who should include this place with not even 10.000 inhabitants in his tour plan?

KEITH RICHARDS - Breakfast of the Gods

The atmospheric black-and-white photo on the cover of "Crosseyed Heart" speaks volumes. It shows the 71-year-old Keith Richards exactly as he is: as a rock'n'roll zombie with abysmal furrows in his face, testifying to wild excesses and concentrated life experience. But also with a real, hearty smile. Nothing is set here, nothing is retouched, it is the real deal. "I don't need make-up and no soft focus", the Stones guitarist explained in the US magazine "Billboard". "Because I stand by who I am, the product of my lifestyle. And I don't have to pretend, especially since nobody would believe me anyway."

Finally alone again - Ex-Stone BILL WYMAN has a solo album out for a long time again

Bill Wyman took 23 years before he released a new album under his own name. In between he has: left the band he co-founded - the Rolling Stones after all; started the Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings project; composed film music; remarried; founded several restaurants; written books... What you do when you're a rock 'n' roll legend. And now the bass player and singer has just recorded a new solo album, "Back To Basics". And this one is once again dedicated to blues rock.

eclipsed: Your solo career doesn't seem to have been important to you for a long time, or why else have you waited so long with a new studio work under your own name?

rule, Britannia!

Forty years ago, an album called "Selling England By The Pound" was released, which is seen by many Genesis and progressive rock fans as the culmination of a development at the end of which the pioneers, who started as a school band, became the kings of symphonic prog in the seventies. But the process that led to the creation of the milestone was quite problematic, sometimes even torturous. eclipsed tells the story of an album that was to shape an entire genre - and emphasized the origin of the musicians like no other.

Time is on our side: 50 years of Stones in rapid succession

"For most people, the sun, the moon, the stars - and the Rolling Stones - have always existed!" Keith Richards once commented on the longevity of his band. The Rolling Stones haven't been around as long as the sun - but long enough to look back on 50 years of Sex, Drugs & Rock'n'Roll. We do this by looking through the past half century for the most relevant events in the band's history - and summarizing the 50 most important Stones numbers from an eclipsed point of view.

Exile in Stones style

In 1971 the Rolling Stones had their back to the wall - almost broke, they had fled from the English tax into exile in southern France, where they wanted to record a new album. "Exile On Main St.", created under adventurous circumstances in the cellar of Keith Richards' Villa Nellcôte, became a myth.
