Of course, although "some girls" and "black and blue" which I derided at the time don't seem too bad if you listen to them now, and the out-takes from the recent re-release of some girls are fabulous. It's only rock and roll is pretty good too, particularly the title track even if ronnie wood wrote it rather than the glimmer twins. I have always thought the mick taylor years were when the band was best, decades before keith said so.

Agree. I did listen to 'Tattoo You' the other day and it contains some really strong tracks - although some of them were unused from many years before. I also got out my original vinyl edition of 'Emotional Rescue' - still has the poster inside.....then I hastily put it way again

Arrab is right though.....David Essex was shite - as was most of his music.
It's a wave of cheese, from slow motion montages to the Essex & his music, but that ending is just like a big "fuck you" to all that. I stand by it, just like I stand by Where Eagles Dare & Who Dares Wins. For the warm nostalgic glow they give me.

Yes, I don't mind tattoo you particularly "start me up" which is an out-take form some girls or black and blue as you say. Emotional rescue, undercover, steel wheels and dirty work are pretty dire, bridges to babylon and voodoo lounge worse, a bigger bang has too many songs but some songs which would probably be acclaimed if from a modern artist. The stones can never live up to their past, and I doubt anyone else could live up to the stones' past either.

Some things are timeless, others are of their time as you say. I loved the new avengers at the time, particularly the young joanna lumley, but it seems totally naff now, whereas the original avengers, particularly with the young diana rigg, is imo timeless and still great, without resiling from fancying the young joanna lumley.

Michael I'm worrying about how much we are agreeing these days, The Avengers was amazing, and I'll admit that I'm a big Tara king (Linda Thorsen) fan.

Diana Rigg circa 67 is the most beautiful woman who ever lived IMO.

They have rightly replayed the avengers the odd time. My brother who is younger than both you and me shares goatboy's (and my) view.
