THE ROLLING STONES “GRRR!” – I Bought This Super Cool 2CD And I’ll Tell You Much More About It…


THE ROLLING STONES – On its release date of November 13th, I happily purchased the brand new 2CD of greatest hits from The Rolling Stones titled: GRRR! at my local Target store. Here’s a funny blunder I am guilty of while making this GRRR! purchase:

Upon seeing GRRR! stocked upon the CD display at Target, the excitement overcame me; so much so that I read the sale price (incorrectly) as $9.99 (U.S.). After buying this 2CD and a few other items, I thought to myself: “gee whiz, Stone, that amount I paid was higher than I calculated in my brain.” I paused, then came to a complete stop before exiting the store. I needed to check my sales receipt and make sure I didn’t get screwed on the price of an item (which happens more often than not).

The Rolling Stones tongue logo was originally created by John Pashe, back in 1971.

Sure enough, I read the price sticker wrong on the GRRR! 2CD. Instead of the price being $9.99 (like I thought I read it) it was $19.99 instead! Whoa! I had not a clue. I guess the good news is that I didn’t pay $19.99 for GRRR! after all. Nope. I instead paid the sale price for GRRR! which was: $16.99. That’s very, very cool. Heck, this is a “2” CD after all and it boasts 40 classics from The Rolling Stones! Not too shabby of a Rockin’ buy and   YOLO! 

The 2 NEW songs on GRRR! are: One More Shot and Doom And Gloom. Both of these songs ROCK!!! WHOA!!! Think: Hard Rock Rolling Stones, (not) Start Me Up or Harlem Shuffle. Seriously, I am very psyched-out about these 2 new songs; they signify that The Rolling Stones can certainly dig-in-deep and continue to put out some kick-ass Classic Hard Rockin’ material!

I highly recommend GRRR! to all Rolling Stones fans and anyone that digs Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Rock and the history of Rock and Roll! Metal be thy name.

  1. Let me tell you Stone, Keith Richard’s autobiography ‘Life’ is perhaps the BEST of the genre I’ve ever read. (My top 3 being that, Glenn Hughes, and David Lee Roth) – and I remember seeing a documentary about the history of the guitar on the TV, where they interviewed Keef among other notable axe-slingers, I mean the dude’s old, yeah? But they filmed him top of a skyscraper, just him and his strat, and the way he played it …the way he MOVED with it – it was amazing – it’s part of him you know? ….and the new kids on the rock’n’roll block, they’re not even coming close to the connection the likes of Keith Richards and Jimmy Page have with their instruments man. They are the stuff of legend, and long may they reign!

    • I couldn’t agree with you more Kev! I mean, 2012 has been: The Year Of The Rockin’ Elders”… and I by no means use the word “elders” in any demeaning way!

      BCC, KISS, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Stones, Jeff Lynne, Soundgarden, Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt, Corrosion Of Conformity, Heart, Testament, Overkill, Geoff Tate, Van Halen, ZZ Top and Aerosmith have ALL released some of the BEST material of their careers in 2012! All so amazingly unique. (IMO, of course). :) That’s just a short list too!

      You are so right about “the connection” between musician and instrument. Coming from you only adds to the legitimacy of this logic!

      I’ll add: vocalists who sing from the heart and soul cannot be manufactured. Fans will see and hear that “connection” and that’s what makes the “mystical connection” between the music and the fan! Whoa. That came across rather psychedelic… LOL!

      Now I’m gonna add a batch of Classic Zofo to my weekend playlist! Whoa!! Thanks again Kev! \m/\m/
