The 20 Feet From Stardom Documentary, The Real Story of Background Singers [REVIEW] [VIDEO]

I recently read the article in Rolling Stone Magazine titled Rocks Greatest Unsung Voices by Simon Vozick-Levinson. Rolling Stone rated it at 4 stars. I rate it at 5. If your  a music fan, you no doubt are familiar with the term "background singer." Darlene Love, Mary Clayton, and Lisa Fischer to name a few of the better known. As I've always said, "a background singer can make or break a live performance." With that in mind, it's my hope you'll either rent or buy the 20 Feet From Stardom documentary.

‘It’s Only Rock n Roll: 30 Years Married to a Rolling Stone’ by Jo Wood [REVIEW]

I just completed reading the book, and want to share my thoughts with you. Being a Rolling Stone fan since they first hit the scene in the early sixties, and Ronnie being my favorite Stone, I had to get the book. I was a bit put off by the reviews of those that read the book, saying they now dislike Ron, are appalled at his actions etc.etc. What reviewers don't realize is the more outlandish the review, the more the book will sell. It's sort of like a song being banned on the radio..everyone goes out and buys the song.
