Keith Richards reveals which song he believes was ‘rushed’
In an interview with Rolling Stone in 1971, Richards had shared his honest take on what sparked him to write it. He then spoke about the song he believes was produced in a rush. He revealed:” ‘Get Off of My Cloud’ was basically a response to people knocking on our door asking us for the follow-up to ‘Satisfaction’… We thought ‘At last. We can sit back and maybe think about events’. Suddenly there’s the knock at the door and of course what came out of that was ‘Get Off of My Cloud’”.
Richards added: “I never dug it as a record. The chorus was a nice idea, but we rushed it as the follow-up. We were in L.A. [Los Angeles, where ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ was recorded], and it was time for another single. But how do you follow-up ‘Satisfaction’? Actually, what I wanted was to do it slow, like a Lee Dorsey thing. We rocked it up. I thought it was one of Andrew Loog Oldham’s worst productions”.
The Rolling Stones recently released two previously unheard recordings from a legendary event in the band’s incredible 60-year history via Universal Music. “Tumbling Dice” and “Hot Stuff”, recorded at The Stones’ famous secret concerts at the 300-capacity Toronto club El Mocambo in March 1977, are out now.
