Stones get political with new song "Doom and Gloom"

One of two new songs coming out

Rolling StonesMaybe the Rolling Stones should stick with singles added on to greatest-hits collections. Last time they did it they added on the catchy rocker "Don't Stop." It didn't reach the level of awesome that, say, "Gimme Shelter" did but it sounded like a good '70s outtake. Their new compilation comes out next month but now they've released "Gloom and Doom," a very political, sparse, urgent rocker that addresses war (though again not as well as "Gimme Shelter") with Mick Jagger moaning "All I hear is gloom and doom." Check it out below. There's one more new song coming with the new package; let's hope it has as much spark as this one.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the Rolling Stones";  English blues-rock, and an American Icon.  Representing power and determination amid applause and conflict, death and restructure.  Powerful lyrical collaboration; contemporary attraction amid contemporary changes.  And you rock!!  Rock on, boys; it's your thing.

I saw the Stones with Ike and Tina Turner as the lead off group in '69 at the San Diego Sports Arena...$13 a ticket.   I prefer the Stones as they were in the 60s, not the group in their 60s!   Beatle drummer Ringo Starr is time flies!
