  • Rolling Stones Guitarist Calls Beatles’ Album a Load of Rubbish

Keith Richards has called one of the most famous Beatles’ album a load of rubbish. The aging Keith Richards has dubbed the Sgt Pepper album a waste of time and money.

Keith Richards is into smoking all kinds of things. That includes pot. In a recent interview with Esquire, he lit up a joint and expatiated on various concerns. He said that he used to do a Rolling Stone gig for 20 minutes in the 60s.

Nowadays it is two hours long. Yet he paces himself and manages the ordeal with his superb stamina. And he sees to it that he eats a healthy diet. Keith still feels the original adrenaline surging through his veins each time he performs.  

There is something about touring with the Rolling Stones. It makes for a lot of meaning and magnificence. Keith says that it is a collective itch that motivates them all as a band. Mick Jagger provides the spark in the dark though. That’s for sure.

The Rolling Stones gave a lot of cool music to America. It provided the impetus to the counterculture. Notice the sexual undercurrents of the lyrics of songs such as “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”. They give us a bare hint of the times that were the Swinging Sixties.

Keith said that he admired the Beatles when they were true to form. But a lot of the times they went way off the handle. That was okay since they were so famous. They got away with a lot of things that other bands would have paid for in the form of lost publicity.

Sometimes the Beatles just got lost in a swampy territory of experimental excess. Keith thinks that the Sgt Pepper album was the worst example of the Beatles going barmy.

Keith Richards said that it was just a mixture of blarney that was meaningless to boot. Keith’s own recent album contains a lot of blues. The Rolling Stones was always about saving the blues as a particular form of musical genre.

Listen to such songs as “Under My Thumb”, “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Jumping Jack Flash”. The Stones shook a whole generation to its core with their mystical and magical music. No other band can even come close to what this bunch of geniuses accomplished. And this was via classic performances in excess that were a success.
