    Love the Stones. When I was a kid we had a boat we kept at a marina close enough to get to by bike and I'd be out on the water all Summer long. There was a Dairy Queen across the street that I'd get lunch at sometimes and I remember with great affection being maybe 13, standing shirtless in front of the DQ, Florida sun blasting down, eating an ice cream cone, and listening to this song on the juke box. Just one of those crystal clear moments in my life as a young boy.

    I think it's truly a miracle that Keith Jones is still alive in 2016. I thought for sure he'd have kicked the bucket by now. I always figured he'd go out in the 1970s the way that many other rock stars of that era (Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and many others too numerous to mention) did. But he's still around. I'm beginning to get a little worried, now. Maybe he'll outlive me.

    I think Mick Jagger is actually expecting another kid sometime soon, as well. Better him than me.

    Mom would put the top down and we'd sing to Cat Stevens on the way to the boat.

    I did like a lot some of the Stones so I know how very talented they were, but not all of it and I was well aware how much more my friends liked them than did I. I was more into soft rock: Cat, Taylor, Carpenters, Chicago, America I loved, Fleetwood Mac of course, Renaissance was one of my faves, etc etc., , there was a bunch of'm.

    The Stones did some good soft rock too and not they were heavy metal by any stretch but I tend to think of their music as rougher, a bit too angry or disjointed for me. You might have noticed I'm a gentle flower.

    I did love stuff like Angie & Wild Horses which are gorgeous songs,
