Everything Is Turning to Gold

Album: Sucking in the Seventies (1981)
  • Written by Jagger, Richards and Ron Wood, this was recorded between October and December 1977 at Pathé Marconi Studios, in Paris, France, and released in June 1978 in the US as a single as the B-side to "Shattered." Stones guitarist Ron Wood explained: "I came up with the chorus when my son Jesse was born. It was inspired by him. I basically wrote the whole thing. Mick wrote the verses - there's few verses actually, and the whole song relies on the choruses."
  • This features Mel Collins on saxophone and Sugar Blue on harmonica. Collins was a popular horn player throughout the 1970s and '80s, recording with the likes of Humble Pie, Uriah Heep, Bad Company and Bryan Ferry. >>
