The Rolling Stones biography



No other band has stayed together longer!

The Rolling Stones are an English band whose RnB and rock & roll infused tunes became popular during the so-called British Invasion in the early 60s.

Although they were around at the same time as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and The Kinks. The Rolling Stones have outlived all these bands, and incredibly, stuck together ever since. To this day, they still tour and record together, thoroughly living up to the English rock and roll lifestyle.

Approaching six decades as a band, The Rolling Stones have accumulated a catalog of hits including Beast Of Burden, Miss You, Start Me Up, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, Wild Horses, Angie, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, As Tears Go By, Honky Tonk Women, and Brown Sugar.

Any serious guitarist should have at least a few of The Rolling Stones’ songs in their repertoire.


Angie was written three years before Hotel California

Angie is a single by The Rolling Stones, from their 1973 album Goats Head Soup.

Not the most obvious choice for the setlist from the Rolling Stones catalog, Angie is one of those tracks that everybody knows without knowing it! This makes it an excellent choice for the solo or duo acoustic lineup.

If you think it sounds a bit like Hotel California by The Eagles, think again. Hotel California was released three years after Angie.

Reaching #1 in America and #5 in the UK, Angie was the biggest success of the Goats Head Soup album.

So, who is Angie? Some say Angie is a reference to Mick Jagger’s affair with David Bowie‘s girlfriend Angela but Mick has denied this on several occasions.

Mick instead refers to Keith, who actually wrote the song. Keith says he can clearly remember that it had something to do with his daughter who’s named Angela.

Many children of the 70s have been named after this classic Rolling Stones ballad.

Angie – 8 Guitar Lessons

The intro, verse, instrumental, tag, and outro of Angie all use the same chords but vary in rhythm and note choices.

The chorus and m8 have been created using the whole band as inspiration. Once you can play it on one guitar, we move on and play the vocal melody.
