Top Five Guitar Stances

That pent-up anger released in a majestic and magnificent manner via the six string. The guitarist has to be one of the most exciting and visual aspects of any band. Pulsating with passion, fuelled with anger and playing with pride. That is a definite criteria for Zanis. The guitar hero is the archetypal angry young man (or woman.); we love them and they fill our hearts with fire.

This is an extract from Simon Wells’ new book on the historic arrest and imprisonment of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger in 1967. “Butterfly On A Wheel” charts the extraordinary timeline of events that ultimately led to two of the Rolling Stones finding themselves behind bars. This act would spark a chain of events that would lead to public outrage, questions in the House of Commons, and the editor of The Times newspaper likening Mick Jagger to a ‘butterfly on a wheel’.

Butterfly On A Wheel

No, they were feared as revolutionaries, capable of uniting the youth of the sixties and bringing the country down.

A Leaf Through Keith

Rhiannon Hill reads between the lines......

I was ‘there’ in the 1960s and we adolescents really did divide into the Beatle tribe and the Stones tribe.... me, Beatle, girls mostly did.

As a working semi pro musician I’ve of course encountered Stones material over the years, and as a former journalist, their folklore, but it’s important to approach Keith Richards’s autobiography, as Neil Young said, ‘mining for a heart of gold.’ In this respect the book definitely offers ‘Satisfaction.’
