Still Rolling

Well did all you Cube Furniture Blog readers hear about the Rolling Stones new album which to no surprise has been met with critical acclaim from many reviewers with the stones embracing a new sound inspired by the blues.

It’s amazing to think about the stones longevity and  mass appeal, given that you would probably fill your Cube Bookcase with their discography which includes 30 studio albums, 21 live albums, 29 compilation albums, and a staggering 109 singles. In fact scratch the bookcase you would need a Cuba Sideboard for all this material.

I don’t think I’m the only one who is happy that new material is still being released, in a music industry that is more often than not over-saturated with the same voices over and over again with the same repetitive hooks, the Rolling Stones represent a time when music was arguably at the peak of its creative powers.

Its hard to even think that in essence they alongside Bob Dylan are among the last of their generation in essence, the romanticised decade that we know as the 60’s.

Icons themselves among other icons such as the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Bob Dylan, The Who and many more who I cannot list without filling this entire Sheesham Furniture article.

However even to this day they sell out stadium tours worldwide as its not only nostalgia that brings not only the older fans in, but also a completely new generation of fans hearing their music for the first time.

After all I became a fan when back in, I think 97 or 98 we had an old vinyl record player atop of a stylish Cube Shelf and we put on Paint It Black, which from then on I was hooked.

With the release of Blue & Lonesome a newer generation of fans will continue to embrace these living legends and get a taste of the 60’s as well as some timeless music.
