The music sizzles and the video on the track with Kristen Stewart – The Rolling Stones – Ride ‘Em On Down is white hot. Wow what a terrific video but the music is better still… Kristen Stewart is driving a 60’s blue Ford Mustang matches the music perfectly the scenes are hot and the music is hotter…

What a sensational 2016 delivery this is by The Rolling Stones as they go back in style to the music that influenced the band over 50 years ago…

Read what The Rolling Stones have to say about the album – Right Here! – Right Now!

The Rolling Stones Blue and Lonesome

“The album was produced by Don Was and The Glimmer Twins and was recorded over the course of just three days in December last year at British Grove Studios in West London, just a stone’s throw from Richmond and Eel Pie Island where the Stones started out as a young blues band playing pubs and clubs. Their approach to the album was that it should be spontaneous and played live in the studio without overdubs. The band – Mick Jagger (vocals & harp), Keith Richards (guitar), Charlie Watts (drums), and Ronnie Wood (guitar) were joined by their long time touring sidemen Darryl Jones (bass), Chuck Leavell (keyboards) and Matt Clifford (keyboards) and, for two of the twelve tracks, by old friend Eric Clapton, who happened to be in the next studio making his own album.

‘Blue & Lonesome’ sees the Rolling Stones tipping their hats to their early days as a blues band when they played the music of Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Eddie Taylor, Little Walter and Howlin’ Wolf – artists whose songs are featured on this album.

“This album is manifest testament to the purity of their love for making music, and the blues is, for the Stones, the fountainhead of everything they do.” Don Was, Co-Producer of ‘Blue & Lonesome’” – Attribution RollingStones.Com
