The Rolling Stones: Voodoo Lounge
Episode date - June 27, 2014
Against all odds and expectations, the Rolling Stones continued to roll on through the nineties. Although “Steel Wheels” was seen as a comeback album for the band, they immediately withdrew for another four years, recording solo albums and embarking on numerous side projects.
From the outside, it seemed like Mick and Keith looked at reuniting for a new record with about as much enthusiasm as a trip to the oral surgeon. “Voodoo Lounge” was a good record, but despite Mick Jagger’s best intentions, the times were changing and the Stones had to face the fact that they were no longer setting the trends.
Their singles sales were abysmal for this album, but the album itself sold exceptionally well, and their ticket sales were through the roof. The Stones, by virtue of surviving, had become the living arbiters of classic rock.
