Fifty Years Of The Rolling Stones — Fifty Years Of Satisfaction!   1 comment

Tomorrow (July 12th) is the 50th anniversary of the great blues/rock ‘n roll British band, the Rolling Stones. For me, it was their more earthy, blues sound that won me over more than the other British band, The Beatles. Like so many young people of the 60’s, the very sexy song by Mick Jagger & Keith Richard “(I Can’t Get Not) Satisfaction,” was a reflection of my feeling.

Just a few days ago, The Rolling Stones placed this 1981 video on YouTube, “Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones – Baby Please Don’t Go – Live At Checkerboard Lounge,” where the band paid a visit to Buddy Guy’s club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform.

Seated in the back, while others stand checking the view. Outside retractable walls, in choice of place, we gathered as, “Largest crowd in recent memory!” repeated through the Poetry Center. Staging a Zen evening, six persimmons a backdrop for laying down the words, Gary Snyder shared anecdotal memories of friendship. Fifty years since Robert Frost read at the Ruth Stephan Poetry Cottage dedication, fifty years out, Snyder reminisced about friend, writer, and philanthropist, Ruth Stephan.

“Poetry is the food of the spirit,
and spirit is the instigator of all revolutions,
whether political or personal,
whether national, world-wide,
within the life of a single quiet human being. “

– Ruth Stephan
