In other news regarding The Rolling Stones and Mick Jagger, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Jagger was asked what the definition of rock and roll was, and he would state the following. Credit to Far Out Magazine for the below.
“All those things: energy, anger, angst, enthusiasm, a certain spontaneity,” Jagger explained. “It’s very emotional. It’s very traditional. It can’t break too many rules. You have certain set rules, certain forms, which are traditionally folk-based, blues-based forms. But they’ve got to be sung with this youthful energy. Or youthful lethargy, because youth has this languorous, lethargic, rebellious side to it as well.”
Jagger continued: “So they can be sung as an alternate mode of thrashing. This slightly feminine languor, the boredom of youth as well as the anger, because youth has those two things. To represent those emotions, this form seems to work very well.”
