    Learning guitar in school is not just simply about memorizing some chords or scales but requires a significant
   base of knowledge, study and practice. Learning guitar is a great choice. While it definitely takes a lot of work, it
                                                    can also be fun

1. You Can't Always Get What You Want

Mere days after their release of "Beggar's Banquet" in 1968, the band pulled together a real-life circus
of a show. Designed as a television spectacle consisting of real circus performers, and some top rock
acts of the day. Jethro Tull, The Who and Eric Clapton were in attendance, as were lions, trapeze
artists, John Lennon and Yoko Ono. The kind of show you might only now see on the very best of
David Letterman.

The idea was to produce a unique showcase, but the footage was eventually shelved and hidden away
for nearly 3 decades due to what was deemed sub-standard performances. It was not shown publicly
for 27 years, except for brief excerpts in home videos. The Who's performance of "A Quick One" was
used in their own film/career documentary, "The Kids Are Alright". The true landmark of the show for
The Rolling Stones was it was Brian Jones' last performance with the band.

2. Only Rock 'n Roll

Before the Rolling Stones had galvanized their name as the World Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the
late '60s, they had already laid a handsome claim to the title. The Beatles had paved the way for the
British Invasion, but the Rolling Stones pioneered the gritty, hard-pounding blues-infused rock and roll
that now defines the genre. Mick Jagger might be a tiny little man by many standards, but with no
question he is the biggest front man to ever grace a rock stage. Wild. Macho. Campy. Sexy. He
created the role of the rockstar.

3. Get Off My Cloud

To nightcap their hugely successful 1969 North American tour, the band planned a large, free concert
in San Francisco similar to a successful concert they had done in London's Hyde Park earlier that
summer. But between permit denials, greed and a last-minute change of venue, the event spiraled
from what was potentially a West Coast Woodstock to a jumbled chaotic mess.

Things turned for the worse with their bad choice of security, the biker gang the "Hell's Angels",
contributing to a day-long sideshow of brutal violence and truly bad vibes. By the time the Stones took
the stage that evening, things had already come undone with a dramatic stabbing of spectator by one
of the Hell's Angels. The stabbing was captured on film in the documentary, "Gimme Shelter".

4. She's A Rainbow

The band's longtime acquaintance with law enforcement started with an infamous 'pissing' incident in
March of 1965. Bill Wyman needed to use the restroom at a gas station, but was refused admittance
and told to promptly vacate the premises. Mick Jagger and Brian Jones joined Bill in pissing against a
wall, and the Rolling Stones' image as bad boys was firmly established. In a remarkable show of
solidarity and opportunism, which was not to be repeated, all five-band members showed up at court,
several weeks later.

5. Under My Thumb

How can you be the next Keith Richards? Well, asides from several obvious personal decisions, to get
his legendary sound, first you're going to need to go out and get yourself a Fender Telecaster. Keith
plays in open G tuning with his own customized 5-string version. Take your low E string off the guitar
and then tune it low to high as GDGBD. You can always tune the low E string to D as well if you're not
into removing the sixth string. Keith sums up his approach with a simple phrase that only he could truly
relate, "5 strings, 3 fingers, and one ***hole." There's no one like Keith Richards.

6. It's All Over Now

The famous tongue and lip design and countless variations of such has graced countless official and
unofficial Rolling Stones memorabilia and products since it first appeared when the band formed
"Rolling Stones Records" in 1971. Credit for the creation of the original design has been mistakenly
given to several people over the years. Many have stated that Andy Warhol was the originator. He did
design two album covers for the band, but not the tongue design. In 1995, Billboard Magazine printed
that it was from the mind of Ruby Mazur. Discovering their mistake, they later corrected their
statement, identifying Mazur as the designer of the first official variation of the tongue design. With
further research later that year, Billboard definitely uncovered that the original classic design came
from John Pasch. Two years later, Mick Jagger confirmed that Pasch was the originator of the fabled
logo.

7. Don't Stop

Rolling Stones museum, anyone? Former Rolling Stones member, Bill Wyman operates a restaurant
entitled, "Sticky Fingers" in the well-to-do Kensington section of London. The food is nothing to write
home about, unless you consider the cuisine at the Hard Rock Café something to die for. The prices
are so-so, no more than the one-two punch inflicted by Planet Hollywood fare.

What's special here is that the whole place is a shrine the legendary rockers. Jam-packed with posters,
magazine covers, guitars, gold discs and the like. Most of time, as you might imagine, you'll be
enjoying the soothing sounds of Stones tune while you munch your fish and chips.

If you never get a chance to stand live in the crowd and soak the sound waves as they emit straight
from the wall of loud speakers, then the next best chance at the excitement is one many films made
from their various shows. Perhaps the most famous is from their 1972 North American tour. Titled,
"Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones", unfortunately the screening of it can prove difficult.
Originally released in Quadraphonic sound, the original soundtrack, record as it is on the film in an
unusual manner requires considerable labor to view properly. The effort is occasionally undertaken, as
it was done in a September 1996 screening at New York's Lincoln Center. Hmmm, maybe it would be
easier to just see them live after all.

9. The Last Time

Is this their last world tour? They've been fielding that question ever since they were first asked it way
back in 1966. Mick Jagger turned 59 this past July 26th and Keith Richards turns 59 on December
18th. Jagger will be 60 by the time they wrap up their European tour, perhaps that's old enough to
retire, but we're betting that they'll be back as long as they're around. Why stop now?

                   How Excited Would You Be To Have Rolling Stones Tickets?
                                             By Jay Nault



 If you happen to have heard of one of the biggest bands of all time, perhaps you’d be interested to
know that Rolling Stones tickets are available once again for their latest tour. The Rolling Stones are
more cultural icons at this point than a band, and their on-stage performances have been legendary for
more than 40 years. How many rock and roll bands would still be hip enough to be asked to sing the
national anthem at the Super Bowl? The answer is one. A look at their amazing time together may
explain how they’re so beloved today.

Beginnings

The band came together by chance, when friends Mick Jagger and Keith Richards began to spend
time with Brian Jones, another aspiring musician. More than just about everything else, the three all
liked to live it up, but they soon began to jam together.

They rehearsed for hours on end, and they soon began playing gigs in local clubs in London. It didn’t
take long for them to be noticed, and they were signed to a record contract with Decca Records. Their
blues-driven style was an instant success. Their first six albums climbed into the top 5 in the UK, and
they placed equally well on the US charts. A big-time band was born.

Worldwide Popularity

The Rolling Stones were seen in the United States as part of the “British Invasion” of the early 1960’s
along with bands like the Beatles. They also became known for their electrifying live performances, and
began their still-going tradition of touring heavily, as the band enjoyed playing as much as the
audiences loved getting their hands on Rolling Stones tickets.

Over time, the band released over 40 albums, and nearly every one of them went gold or platinum. In
all, they have sold an astounding 240 million copies of their albums on several continents, and remain
one of the most successful bands of all time.

Struggles

Like many bands of their day, the Rolling Stones also experienced their share of troubles. A source of
many of these obstacles was their heavy drug use which enveloped every member of the band at one
point to varying degrees.

The first to be stricken was Jones, who descended into a violent cycle of drug and alcohol abuse and
was eventually replaced due to the fact that he was too unreliable. Ultimately, in 1969, Jones was
found dead at the bottom of his pool surrounded by statues of Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh.
It was a loss that hit the band hard, but they persevered and continued to record and tour.

Within a few years, Richards was also terribly addicted to drugs and alcohol, and the addiction he
would ultimately fight for years took a heavy toll. He withdrew somewhat from the writing duties that he
had shared with Jagger since they began working together, and he also had more than his share of
legal troubles as a result of his addiction.



                                                                                                        Page 4

Recovery

Over time though, the members of the band ultimately put their lives together and continued to record
and tour at a dizzying rate throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. Their influences are numerous, and
countless bands credit them with inventing the hard rock genre that’s so popular today.

The Rolling Stones are one of the world’s treasures, and even as they move into their 60’s, Rolling
Stones tickets are still a huge draw just about anywhere in the world.
