Tripping Along The Ledge


Rocks Off (1972)

“The sunshine bores the daylights out of me…” Listened to this today for the first time in a long time. It’s even fucking better than I remembered it. My favourite rock n’ roll track of all time. Easy.

    I have long expressed the wish to be carried out of my own funeral mass to the sound of Shine A Light from this same record. Nobody ever listens. I’m going to call this my official testament right here on this blog and you’re my witness, Eoin, right?

  2. Eoin Says:

    Damn right, Paul. I’ll even bump you off myself if it’ll expedite the process.

  3. Andy Says:

    Paul, I think I read somewhere that the Stones had never played Shine a Light live until Scorcese got them to do it for his film. Is that true?
