Influences of the Rolling Stones

Bo Diddley - A Man Amongst Men: December 30, 1928 – June 2, 2008

"The Originator" of the "Bo Diddley Beat". It can only be described in sound...

Rolling Stones Bo Diddley Covers
Pretty Thing, You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover, Crackin' Up (Live BBC 7/23/64 & El Mocambo 3/4/77), Road Runner, Doing The Crawdaddy (Live), Mona, Who Do You Love? (Live 11/25/94)

The "Roots of the Rolling Stones" are directly traced to Rhythm and Blues artist, The Country Blues, and the Chicago Blues sound. These were the earliest influences, but as time goes on so does the Stones' taste in music. Probably the most fascinating aspect of the band is it's ability to adapt to the trends of contemporary music. A chronology of influence by musical genre by decade:

1960's: Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Country Music, and Psychedelic

1970's: Funk, Reggae, Punk, and Disco!

1980's: Pop and Soul Music

1990's: Techno and Rap!

Ryland (Ry) Cooder

Ry Cooder is officially credited with playing mandolin on Love In Vain, slide guitar on Sister Morphine, as well as contributing to the soundtrack of "Performance". This includes the guitar work on Jagger's first solo effort: Memo From Turner. Cooder was a much heavier influence on the Stones than the credits might indicate. It's no coincidence that Richards real focus on open G tuning coincides with the Cooder's "Let It Bleed" session work with the Stones. There was friction between session man Cooder and Rolling Stone Richards which played out in Richards not showing up for "Let It Bleed" sessions. This ultimately led to studio jams with the Stones, Cooder, and Nicky Hopkins and a record documenting all this called "Jamming With Edward".

Love In Vain - "Let It Bleed", "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!", & "Stripped"

Comment: Prior to the Box Set releases unauthorized recordings were the only way to get the alternate "back-up" takes of Johnson's recordings. This is also the means the Stones used to hear songs they recorded and played in 1969 prior to release of the second Columbia LP recording of "new sides".

Love In Vain was recorded by the Stones in sessions that took place between March 24-27, 1969 at Olympic Studios, in England. The song was released on December 5, 1969 on the "Let It Bleed" album and played live prior to the studio record release during the 1969 US Tour. It is a brilliant adaptation of a song written and performed by the legendary bluesman Robert Johnson. The Stones release of the song preceeds the Columbia release of additonal Johnson sides that came out on the LP "King Of The Delta Blues Singers Vol. II". Johnson originally recorded the song at The Blue Bonnet Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, in 1936. There are two takes of the Johnson song in existance.
