    Mick Taylor, who replaced Brian when he quit or was fired, was a better guitarist, but the stones didn't seem have the same sound after Brian left.

    No they didn't, they shifted from blues influence to a jazzier sound. Taylor used more exotic scales in his lead rifts. But I liked both sounds.

    I have a theory that Richards died years ago and that his concert appearances are done by attaching fishing line to his limbs and manipulating him like a marionette. The refrigerated limousine is the dead giveaway.

    Brian Jones was found dead in a swimming pool in 1969. I think he was kind of pushed out of the group right before he was found dead. Personally I liked the Stones better with Jones.

    "When you read this remember me
    and bear me in your mind.
    Let the world say what they may
    and speak of me as they find."

    Brian Jones

    Brian Jones was in a permanent cocaine induced haze after 1966, he didn't contribute anything to the stones after their first few albums. I don't even think he played guitar on Beggars Banquet or Let it Bleed. He was MIA.

    The stones pretty much sucked after 1972, because like most bands, they ran out of creative energy. I think its as simple as that.

    Som Girls was a pretty good effort, I thought.

    Probably the most underrated album from the Stone's was the 1967 "Flowers" album.
