Richards recalls, "He was more into T-Bone Walker and jazz blues stuff. We'd turn him onto Chuck Berry and say, 'Look, it's all the same shit, man, and you can do it.
I learned that Earl Phillips was playing on those records like a jazz drummer, playing swing, with a straight four. Similarly, Keith Richards, describing the first time he listened to Muddy Waters, said it was the "most powerful music [he had] ever heard When [Jagger and Richards] began to write songs, they were usually not derived from the blues, but were often surprisingly fey, slow, Mersey -type pop numbers".
Jagger said of the song, "It's a relatively mature song considering the rest of the output at the time. And we didn't think of [recording] it, because the Rolling Stones were a butch blues group.
The amazing thing is that although Mick and I thought these songs were really puerile and kindergarten-time, every one that got put out made a decent showing in the charts. That gave us extraordinary confidence to carry on, because at the beginning songwriting was something we were going to do in order to say to Andrew [Loog Oldham], 'Well, at least we gave it a try We were very pop-orientated.
We didn't sit around listening to Muddy Waters; we listened to everything. In some ways it's easy to write to order Keith and I got into the groove of writing those kind of tunes; they were done in ten minutes. I think we thought it was a bit of a laugh, and it turned out to be something of an apprenticeship for us. Richards called it "a bridge into thinking about writing for the Stones.
Beginning with Jones and continuing with Wood, the Rolling Stones have developed what Richards refers to as the "ancient art of weaving" responsible for part of their sound — the interplay between two guitarists on stage. Guest pianists were commonplace on recordings; several songs on Beggars Banquet are driven by Nicky Hopkins ' piano playing.
On Exile on Main St. Richards started using open tunings for rhythm parts often in conjunction with a capo , most prominently an open-E or open-D tuning in The feuds between Jagger and Richards originated in the s when Richards was a heroin addict,   resulting in Jagger managing the band's affairs for many years.
Musical collaboration between members of the band and supporting musicians was key, due to the fluid lineups typically experienced by the band in the studio,   as tracks tended to be recorded "by whatever members of the group happened to be around at the time of the sessions".
Since their formation in , the Rolling Stones have survived multiple feuds. Their top single is " I Can't Get No Satisfaction",  regarded by many at the time as "the classic example of rock and roll".

The Rolling Stones have performed more than two thousand concerts around the world. They stabbed and beat an audience member, Meredith Hunter to death.

The Stones' early setups were simple compared to what they became later in the band's career when elaborate stage designs, pyrotechnics and giant screens were used. By the time the Stones toured America in , they began to fill large halls and arenas, such as The Forum in Inglewood, California.
The Guardian commented that their "combination of front-of-house excellence and behind the scenes savvy took the business of touring to an entirely new level. During the Tour of the Americas, arena shows became an industry for the band, and the Stones hired a new lighting director, Jules Fisher. On this tour they had two versions of what Jagger referred to as the "lotus stage". One version had a large Venetian cylindrical curtain, and the other had leaves that began in a folded up position and opened during the beginning of the concert.
I had to get inside the lotus, climb up a ladder and hang on like grim death to one of the petals, which then opened to reveal the band playing. During the — American tour, the Stones worked with Japanese designer Kazuhide Yamazari in constructing their stages for stadium-sized locations and audiences. The venues were large enough in size that the band became "like ants" to audience members. When you're out there in this vast stadium, you have to physically tiny up on stage, so that's why on the tour we had those coloured panels and later we started using devices like video screens.
We became very aware of not being seen, of just being there like ants. Mick is the one who really has to project himself over the footlights. And when the show gets that big, you need a little extra help, you need a couple of gimmicks, as we call it, in the show.
You need fireworks, you need lights, you need a bit of theatre. As time went on, their props and stage equipment became increasingly sophisticated. When the Stones began to fill stadium-sized venues, or larger, they ran into the problem of the audience no longer being able to see them.
