Binky Philips: '9 Best Rolling Stones Songs'?! Jeeez, I Only Count 40.
Huffington Post - over 3 years
So, Bill Janovitz had his "9 Best Rolling Stones Songs" up last week. Being a Stones obsessive since the Summer of 1964, I checked young Bill's list out. It got me thinking. 9 Best? Curious number that. I associate it with John Lennon, don't you? Could Bill not come up with a 10th 'best' track? And what-up with some of those picks? At least a few seem like a dart landed on their title while BJ was throwing blindfolded. Well, chacun a son gout, baby! Makes his forthcoming book that much more intriguing. So, was I gonna do something about it? Of course, I was. Okay... just the very best The Rolling Stones have had to offer lo, this past half-century...

Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Listening to him today, even seeing him on YouTube may not be enough to show younger people how intimidating Howlin' Wolf seemed 40 years ago. At six and a half feet tall, he was a colossus of a bluesman, a frighteningly intense force of nature delivering such tales of misery and love gone very, very wrong as "Smokestack Lightning," "Spoonful" and "Killing Floor." When I was assigned to interview Wolf for a music magazine, I was more than a bit nervous about how he would take to a young middle-class Jewish white kid from Lawn Guyland. He turned out to be nothing but kind and helpful. The story of American music is often the story of race -- and particularly of white boys and girls learning about music from black men and women. The tale of Elvis Presley hanging out in Mississippi juke joints is something like a gospel story in the history of American culture. The compelling new documentary Chicago Blues (directed by John Anderson, produced by John Bueg and co-produced by ...
