    I think that I may have finally outgrown The Stones.

    If we're following the logic that the defeat of a nation leads to an immediate shift in the language of the indigenous people, then it's more likely that the absence of US intervention in Europe would have lead to the Stones singing in Russian than German. I'm not sure how much US industry was propping up the Soviets in the early stages of the war and how much that had to do with them turning the tide in the east, but it is likely that the Russians would have won regardless of the war in the west - which would have lead to the Russians sweeping far beyond just Eastern Europe.

    Could you imagine the Stones with a Soviet aesthetic?


    Me neither.

    I'd say that says worse things about the tastes of a contemporary audience than it does the stones!!!

    Do you keep that vid handy in your watch list just for the purpose of checking overly nationalistic Americans?

    We’d be stuck in the land of the Beatles.

    Who Remembers when the question was:
    Beatles or Stones?

    I voted Stones in 1964.
