(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66 – The Rolling Stones – Bass Cover


Bass cover played along to a backing track of the classic “(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66″ recorded by The Rolling Stones in 1964. ——————————————————– The Rolling Stones are an English rock band, formed in London in April 1962 by Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. The emergence of the Rolling Stones has been credited for the greater international popularity of the primitive urban blues typified by Chess Records’ artists such as Muddy Waters, who wrote “Rollin’ Stone”, the song from which the band drew its name. Though R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones’ early material, their repertoire has always included rock and roll. The Rolling Stones’ endurance and relevance, critic and musicologist Robert Palmer said, is due to their being “rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music” while “more ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone”. Jones led the band until Jagger and Richards assumed leadership after teaming as songwriters. In 1969 Jones’ diminishing contributions to the band and his inability to tour, due to poor health and legal complications, caused him to leave the band three weeks before drowning in his swimming pool. Jones’ replacement Mick Taylor stayed with the band until leaving voluntarily in 1974, with Ronnie Wood
