    Default Rolling stones

    Due to the woke brigade, the rolling stones will no longer play their classic hit song ( Brown Sugar) on any further tours.
    As Keith Adams says in one of his posts, the world's gone mad!!!
    A fabulous classic rock track dropped because it may cause concern to some, bet when they wrote it they never thought the wokes would cause so much hassle.

    Always saw that it was a song about the horrors of slavery?

    hi john arton #1
    good evening, i love the stones, But its sad to think that the song brown sugar is a reference to heroin and therefore i could and would understand why some people would like it to be banned, but the woke brigade whom are re- writing history will use any reference to further their agenda and add weight to their narrative,even to the extent of denying that it was the irish, scots and welsh whom brought the music and their musical instruments to america, that the woke brigade now insist that the american black slaves where the inovators of,

    Never know why any songs should be taken away because of Words! What the heck, they are only words and at most times mean very little!
    So much has been put on about these issues , i cannot understand it.
    Like in one of my Posts about the Beer etc, i mentioned Black and Tan Pints , and even that would be taken the wrong way i guess these days!

    Had now't to do heroin but they are mistaken re: with slavery and black women

    Frontman Sir Mick Jagger told the LA Times: “We’ve played ‘Brown Sugar’ every night since 1970, so sometimes you think, we’ll take that one out for now and see how it goes. We might put it back in.”

    Guitarist Keith Richards confirmed it has been removed from the setlist, but defended the song.

    “Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery?” he said.

    Bet no one bothers about:

    Kinky Reggae
    Bob Marley & The Wailers

    hi vernon #4
    good evening, Words a song and one of the many written and sung by the bee gees, another great group.
    and to your mention of words similar to black and tan, black out, its a black night out doors, we go on and on, but the woke agenda is not for you or i, it is for the re-writing of history in favour of those that want it written, and its reason is for the history books of the future, where we will play no part, and the subliminal re-education of the youth and education of the yet unborn will have taken shape when we are no longer able to voice a complaint against it, as we will be shouted down by the useful idiots of the liberal left marxists whom believe they are going to change the world for the good of the minorities, or at least thats what they tell their deciples, ie their useful idiots, yes george orwell was absolutely on the money with his tome 1984.

    Rolling stones...never much liked them but surely the world is going to turn into a monochrome of nothingness if this type of silly rewriting of musical lyrics continues??? Why is it necessary?
    These songs were of those times, sure be neutral now if you want but this is the past, and deserves to remain as it was mean to be at that time. History for want of a better word.
    The world is getting to be very boring if this type of thing continues.....who started this woke stuff anyway?

    The Strolling Bones, been around for so long now, but sad to see Charlie go.

    Painted Black, well they may have to consider Grey, or Blue maybe, cannot be white as the people of non white background will complain.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    I have heard it said that racism is on the up, if they keep this up it will keep going up. Nearly all of what people use now in the world is; or was; invented by either white or Asian people. If slaves hadn't been taken to the States or the islands , there would be very few African Americans in the States, and they would like many, still left in Africa, be pulling water out of a well that poor white people helped put there through the collection boxes.
