One More Shot

  • The Rolling Stones recorded this sing-along rocker in Paris along with "Doom and Gloom" for their hits collection GRRR!. Keith Richards recorded the original demo of this song in New York in 2011. "I had a feeling about it," the guitarist told Q magazine. "I thought, if we get the Stones back in the studio, this is made for Mick. He and I have a very tight partnership. One that's had to survive several knocks, but that strengthens the bond, in a way."
  • Richards said in November 2012: "It was probably the quickest Rolling Stones recording session I can remember, ever. We cut two tracks in three days. It was incredibly professional. I had 'One More Shot' ready, Mick had 'Doom and Gloom' ready to go, so, boom, let's cut 'em."

    The session also made an impression on Don Was. He praised the song in a 2012 interview: "It's got all this f---ing power. Everyone was smiling. You can recognize it's the Rolling Stones from a mile away." >>
