and the new millennium that still sees them doing great live shows. The last official album was A Bigger Bang from 2005, and they've more or less stopped making new stuff since. The Beatles quit the concerts to concentrate on the studio. The Stones, being the live band they always were, quit the studio to concentrate on the concerts.
The Rolling Stones have done more to define the look, attitude and sound of rock & roll than any other band in the genre's history. Every album the group released through the early Seventies – from The Rolling Stones in 1964 to Exile on Main Street in 1972 - is essential not simply to an understanding of the music of that era, but to an understanding of the era itself.

Key Track: "Something Happened to Me Yesterday," an old-time music-hall ditty about an acid trip. Best Mick Moment: The slobbering lust of "My Obsession.

As non-album hits and tabloid rancor continued to ramp up the Stones’ domestic reputation as the anti-Beatles their third covers-heavy long player reflected mod-propelled changing times by shifting its attention from blues to soul. Don Covay’s Mercy Mercy, Marvin Gaye’s Hitch Hike and Sam Cooke’s Good Times find the Stones mastering a fresh discipline.
