  • This song was written as a tribute to legendary R&B performer Billy Preston, who plays keyboards on this track. Preston has had a long history of run-ins with the law for charges such as assault and drug possession. The only man ever to have recorded songs with both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Preston played the famous keyboard solo on the Fab Four's "Get Back." >>

  • Husband and wife duo Mark Gaillard and Mary Anderson sued The Stones, claiming that this was a rip-off of a song they wrote called "Oh Yeah." They claimed Stones engineer John Bernard was in the studio when they recorded "Oh Yeah" in 1996 and brought the idea to The Stones.
  • Meshell Ndegeocello played bass on this track. She had a popular song as a solo artist with "If That's Your Boyfriend (He Wasn't Last Night)" and played on sessions with Madonna and Indigo Girls. >>

  • Jim from Long Beach, CaI don't v care much for the Stones after "Some Girls" but they had a few moments like this one . Great song...
  • Steve from Phoenix, AzI don't know why I like this song.
    Oh yeah, it's only rock and roll and
    I like it.
    This song has substance, but thats' the
    beauty of the stones if you want intelligence,
    you've got it, if you want sitting in a bar
    chasing women, you've got it, if want about
    anything else you can extract from these
    Monsters Of Rock. You've got it.
  • Patrick from Greenville, Scthe only great song of off a very weak Stones album.
  • Scott from Boston, MaI used to make fun of my mom for liking "old music" (the Stones are her favorite band), but then I heard this song on MTV/VH1 when I was 8 and liked it without even realizing it was the Stones. My mom told me if I like this song, I'd like all their songs cuz their older stuff was much better. Needless to say the Stones are one of my favorite bands now. My mom and I saw them at Fenway Park a few years ago and it was incredible.
  • Burningrabbit from Nowhere, WiMick makes this song. But let's not put too fine a point on it; it's just the one song. But damn does it sound good in the downtown club in my little city. I had no idea when I introduced it that it was not a new song of their's, so fresh does it sound to my ears. Mick, for whatever he is to those around him, is so suave when he wants to be. Love you live, you'll...!
  • Craig from Melbourne, AustraliaA brilliant song showcasing the intelligence of the Stones lyrics & the superb musicianship. Charlie rules this track.
  • Rachel from South Point, OhI like this song..
  • Jim from Troy, NyBilly Preston is not the only man to have recorded with both the Beatles and the Stones. Nicky Hopkins did too. There might be more, I know that Hopkins played on the White Album and Let it Bleed. He was probably one of the best session keyboard players in rock history.
  • Elias from Oost-souburg, NetherlandsThey made a terrible house version of this. Was on the cd-single.
