Rolling Stones – “Blue & Lonesome”
The Rolling Stones are undoubtedly one of the greatest bands in history, and the English rockers have just released their 25th studio album, Blue & Lonesome, and it’s safe to say the legendary Stones sound and feel hasn’t been lost. The album, which features the band’s new hit Ride ‘Em on Down, was recorded in just three days, and also features Eric Clapton on guitar on two tracks. Clapton was recording his own album in the same studio as the Stones were and was asked to play on a few tracks. Epic.
