The Rolling Stones- GIMMEE SHELTER (Featuring Lisa Fisher)



I usually try to incorporate a bit of history with each entry to this blog, but with the "World's Greatest Rock n' Roll Band", I won't even try. Their bio is too lengthy, their accomplishments too numerous, and The Rolling Stones official website does a much better job than I ever could.

Their history, told by the month, is chronicled in this archive, starting in January, 1962 when Brian Jones recorded a tape of an Elmore James song, which he sent to the "Father of British Blues", Alexis Korner, then on through the decades of the '60's, '70's, '80's, '90's, and on to the new century.

Charter members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and "new guy (of 30+years)" Ron Wood probably will, like they said of love in their first American hit in 1964, "Not Fade Away".

Below...my favorite Stones song, recorded live in Paris in 1998 and featuring longtime backing singer Lisa Fisher.....Gimmee Shelter.
