The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World

Count me among those who believe that The Rolling Stones are the greatest rock and roll band in the world…still.

In recognition of their 50th anniversary, in a series of four individual interviews, NPR’s Melissa Block and Audi Cornish asked Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ron Wood and Mick Jagger to pick a song out of their archives to talk about. Keith talked about Street Fighting Man, Charlie’s pick was Satisfaction and Mick went with Gimme Shelter.

I liked Ron Woods pick best. He went with Dance Part 1. It's a song that gets you moving...

"I stuck up for myself, 'cause I picked a song that I wrote," Wood says. "I thought, 'No one's gonna mention that.' But I think people, when they hear that song, they love it — because it's really up, and it gets everyone dancing."

Melissa Block said her favorite was Wild Horses.

Great stuff.
