    Tough call.

    Beggars Banquet came out in the late 60's...GREAT album.

    Exile in the 70's...

    I prefer the Mick Taylor years, but Beggars is my favorite album.

    I have to go with the '70s on the strength of "Exile" alone. I love that album from start to finish without skipping a single track. But, honestly, "Beggars Banquet" thru "Exile on Main Street" are my favorite years/albums for the Stones. Tough choice, but "Exile" is their masterpiece.

    Beggars Banquet is my favorite of what I have. I am not very knowledgeable about the Stones timeline, and I only have some of their stuff, not a lot, but I prefer Beggars to Exile.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I'd stretch that from the Jumping Jack Flash Single to It's Only Rock N Roll....

    70's for me hands down. I always remember the Stones playing in the background as a child so it is a personal connection but also the amount of hits they had, phenomenal.

    Black and Blue is the only release from the 70s that I don't like....too disjointed, found out years after I first heard it, it was an audition recording....quite a few different guitarists on that album, if memory serves Ronnie Wood is only on two tracks

    You Stone fans will like a little part in a Johnny Cash biography I just read.

    At Johnny Cash's RNR HOF induction, there were two stories about Keith and Johnny.

    Supposedly JC went into the bathroom to take a wiz, and Keith was in there already singing one of JC's songs.

    Also, when they were practicing for the big jam (which was Purple Haze), Johnny Cash had to look at other guitarists to learn the chords, and Keith leaned in to JC and said to him "thank God you looked over first, I don't know them either."

    This is from memory, but I think you get the gist. You could tell that Keith really liked Johnny Cash.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I like it all. My personal favourite era spans the end of the '70s and the early '80s. I love the early records - such a different band. And then through the '60s you get to hear that Metamorphosis (ha!) from playing Chicago blues and Motown through psychedelia and then into the Mick Taylor era with more blues and some country - and of course through it all, a lot of rock!

    Tough call.
    I love it all but "Let It Bleed" is one of my favorites.
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Tough call since they span so many decades.

    I guess several of my favorite songs come from the 60s era so I would pick the 1960s by a hair. So many good songs in the 70s as well.

    ++++

    As a kid the first "NEW" Stones record I heard was Tattoo You in 1981. That was such a big hit on rock radio as well as Top 40s radio.

    Some of my favorite Stones songs



    This song is just so damn cool!



    One of the best love songs.....




    Another great love song....just like this live version



    Going off on Some Girls, and if anyone would know, it'd be them.....



    Such a lush and beautifully sad song....and with the weather lately it seems fitting.



    So funky and dirty....

    The 70's. They were better with an actual lead guitarist. And Black and Blue and Some Girls were great records even though Taylor was gone.
