Dead Flowers – The Rolling Stones

Artist: The Rolling Stones
Song: Dead Flowers
Album: Sticky Fingers

I’m dedicating this song to the late, great James Gandolfini. I think that all of the New Jersey Soprano fans should get together every year, and leave rubber duckies on his grave. Remember his whole thing with the ducks in his backyard? I have a pair of mallards that come back to my pool every year as well, and I don’t know what it is about them, but they bring me joy too.

I don’t think I need to say anything to introduce you to The Rolling Stones (at least I hope not!). A bunch of crazy teenagers with love of the blues formed one of the greatest, longest touring rock bands yet.

In my personal opinion, Sticky Fingers is one of their best albums. My mother has her original record of this album framed at her house. On the original, the zipper on the front cover is real and goes up and down. What’s behind it? I’ll leave that to you to find out… 😉

    I agree with you, it was always my favourite album by The Stones because it was definitely their most bluesy album, and from what I’ve seen of your blog I suspect that the blues factor is also the same reason why you also think it is a good album. I wrote a post the other day on one of my blogs about the song “You Got To Move” by Mississippi Fred Mcdowell which the Stones covered on “Sticky Fingers” in a very reverential way. I would pingback/trackback/piggyback whatever its called but I aint got a clue how it works.
    Thanks for this post.

    • Who me? like the blues? Whatever gave you that idea? Ha, ;-). I’ll have to find that post on “You Got To Move”, sounds like my kind of reading. I’d help you out with the pingback pattywhack, but I’m not sure how all that works either.

      Thanks for reading!
