HERE), MRML isn't becoming a 'scan blog'. However, thanks to Big Scott we've received an avalanche of rock n' roll comics, including one on The Rolling Stones.
Deep in my classic rock phase (circa 1980), my elder brother and I would argue incessantly (and occasionally homophobically) about the alleged superiority of The Doors or the Rolling Stones. I was The Doors defender, my brother the Stones supporter. While my appreciation for Mr. Mojo Risin' and his doors of perception has fallen over the years, my feeling for the Stones have stayed exactly the same. Good band. I like a lot, if not all, of the hits but I've never owned a proper Rolling Stones album (though I kept a vinyl copy of Exile on Main St. that someone gave me for a few weeks). I don't mean to besmirch the band on their golden anniversary. After all, the band's longevity is mind-boggling, their influence boundless and they always make great copy (e.g. Mick Jagger once claimed his wrinkles were merely 'laugh lines' to which British jazz codger George Melly replied, "nothing's that funny").
In this issue, from Revolutionary Comics, we get the Stones story from the meeting of Mick and Keef till the multimillion dollar Steel Wheels tour (plus three bonus features), told in simple black and white images with forty-six numbered historical reference points!
