Sir Stonesalot I must have been pretty young when I first heard The Stones. My dad likes them, and used to play them on the 8 track in his '70 Baracuda. I have no recollection of any particular songs. I know that I liked them OK.

I was 14 when a chick gobbled my knob for the very first time. "She's So Cold" was playing on the radio. She was not cold at all. She is now because she's dead, but not back then. She Was Hot woulda better described her then. So I kinda took a shine to The Stones then.

But I didn't become a crazy obsessed fan until I saw them live at 3 Rivers Stadium in 1989. I fell into a couple of 5th row center tix and went. Ruby Tuesday sealed the deal for me that night. It was one of the first boots that I sought out.

monkey_man I'm pretty sure at party after my baptism the Stones were being blasted. That's what I get for having 20 year old hippy parents!

M.O.W.A.T. Probably at my cousin's house in 1980. He had just gotten Emotional Rescue for Christmas and my first exposure to the Stones was She's So Cold and Emotional Rescue.

Around 1986, I went to the library and checked out Hot Rocks on vinyl just to tape satisfaction, but then realized that the whole album rocked.

First Stones purchase:

On cassette: Dirty Work (GASP!!!)

On CD: Still Life, off to see the Who!

btw, that first cassette of Hot Rocks followed me to university and eventually wore out.

Brainbell Jangler October 25, 1964 between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. Ed Sullivan Show. We usually watched Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color at that time, but my mom (who was 28 at the time) was into the Stones and wanted to watch their first appearance on Sullivan.

Southbound Train My first exposure to Rolling Stones' music was in the womb, May 1971-February 1972.

As a toddler I destroyed my parent's original copies of "Flowers" and "Let it Bleed" by rubbing the tonearm back and forth, like a percussion instrument, totally motivated by Rolling Stones vibrations as the music bonded with my soul.

When I was five years old I discovered my dad's stack of 45s. For the entire autumn of 1977 I ran and jumped around the house as "Get Off Of My Cloud/Around and Around
kick-started the house's mainbeams.

Since then I've required a daily dose of Rolling Stones

Jair Back in 176. I was in home, doing nothing (actually, masturbating in the attic), listening to the radio, an AM station named Continental, from Porto Alegre city, which is the capital of the state where I live.

I didnt know were the Stones, but the song was great. At the end, a girl said: "You just heard Hey negrita, by The Rolling Stones".

Wow! I thought to myself, these guys are still together?

Then, in a couple of months I bought a little mono vitrola, in orange color (!!!), the single I Dont Know Why/Try A Little Harder and next, Black and Blue.

I had to get a job to buy my stuff, cuz my dad was a fuckink jerk and didnt want gimme anything. Hope he is still burning in hell & listening Celine Dion.

So, when Some Girls came out, I stole it from a local record store named "Antonov", owned by a fucking russian with a ass face.

A funny history: I went to the store and to vinyl section with NOTHING in my hands, but nobody noticed this little detail.

Then, I pick Some Girls from the shelves, went until a vendor and I said him: hey, I bought this album here yesterday, but it has a scratch, can you return my money or gimme another one? The guy replied: "sure, no prob" and gimme another copy of Some Girls.

corgi37 Couldnt really say when it was the 1st time i heard them. I knew of them (of course!) long before i got into them. "Litte Queenie" was probably the 1st (and odd) song i knew of theirs. My sister had that "Gimme Shelter" compilation 8 track. At least, i THINK it was on that! hahaha.

In 76/77, we had a weekly late-night music show called "Nightmoves". It was great as it was intended for adults. There was no "glam" crap. No disco. No silly punk. Just cool, classic shit. I recall i would be in my room, making my Airfix planes (in particular, i recall making a "Brewster Buffalo" while a doco on the 76 tour was on! I wasnt even interested!) while listening to the show and looking up every now and then to see what was on. The host, Lee Simon, is a Stones nut! He's still on the air on radio. He's the assistant Manager at one of our top rating FM stations here in Melbourne.

I recall the doco was on nearly every week. To my immense frustration, i have not seen it since or even heard of it. I recall some groupies talking to the camera. Around the same time, Lynrd Skynrd crashed and burned, and they showed them every fucking week for months! hahaha. Also, acts like Bowie, Lou Reed, Neil Young - it was a very good show. Of course, Hot Stuff & Hey Negrita were played often too, but i didnt really pay much attention.

But, probably the thing that got me the most wasnt aural, but visual. It was STONES IN THE PARK. We had to watch it for English class. My English teacher was a fanatic! I was gob-smacked! I cried during Sympathy! And, i was hooked. It was 1978, which was lucky, as the Stones were more or less re-born. I adored Miss You, yet Some Girls i didnt buy until around 81. That year, i got the old Decca box set for Christmas. I had never heard most of the songs. I cried again when i heard Symathy - studio version, but really lost it when i heard Gimme Shelter for the 1st time. I just couldnt believe some one could write/perform a song so magical. It blew my mind (still does!). Also, Stray cat blues & (oddly) Memo from Turner.

Thus, from hence forth, my infliction has only worsened.

Jair Am I the only one who stole a record here, fuck?

Whem Mick Jagger knew about it, I remember he said to me: well done jair, good for you, Some Girls is a good album, you'll feel good listening it.

Trey Krimsin I was probably 3 or 4 years old when I first heard the Rolling Stones. I used to sneak (and I wasn't a good sneak then) into my uncle's room and listen to his 45's. He wasn't a big Stones fan, but he had copies of Miss You and Beast of Burden. I liked the songs, but I didn't become a big fan until I got Exile On Main Street in Christmas '94.
