If I had to pick one, I guess my favorite musical genre would be the blues. Something that reaches to my most inner depths.
BUT there’s just something about rock n roll that grabs me out of the blue, so to speak, every once in awhile. Gimme Shelter came on* when I was doing dishes last week, such a perfect song, one for which I have several rather deep connections.
A few notes by Keith, 2 drumbeats by Charlie then a few triplets of ooo-ooo-ooos from the girls before:
Oh, a storm is threat’ning
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away
Then on came Let It Bleed. We all need someone to lean on. So true.
Check it out 60s R&R fans. Like every few years I listen to Blonde on Blonde or the Band’s first album.
