Their Satanic Majesties Request, Revisited
Ahhh, Paul. Great guy. Played an advance copy of Music From Pink for about 5 of us, including the great trumpeter Kenny Dorham, one afternoon in 1968 in Jackie Whitten's loft on Broome Street. Somebody had some...uh...really good pot...suffice to say the afternoon was memorable. Sort of.
I guess the gossip that the Stones and Beatles were rivals relates to the idea that you had to pick one or the other as your favorite. Despite loving a lot of Beatles, I always went with the Stones, mainly on the basis of Can't You Hear Me Knocking (and Sticky Fingers as a whole). Nice to see Swarthmore get a mention in here, too. I was class of 1979 but didn't finally make it through till 1984. :)
