Me stessa – Myself

🌸Me stessa🌸

Preferisco sempre
la coerenza
tra quello che si dice
e quanto si dimostra

Parole vere
e mai paraventi
o maschere
per apparire

Non apprezzo l’uso degli altri
solo per convenienza
per poi gettarli via
se non servono

Silenzi strategici
o strafottenza
senza rispetto

la vita vera
e mai la distanza

ad essere
sempre e soltanto
me stessa

Always I prefer
between what is said
and what it shows

Real words
and never screens
or masks
to appear

I don’t appreciate the use of others
just for convenience
and then throw them away
if they are not needed

Strategic silence
or arrogance
without respect

I prefer
real life
and never needing

I will continue
to be
always and only

Mente aperta – Open mind

Mente aperta

Con la mente aperta
libero pensieri
perché tutto vada
e possa germogliare
o volare altrove
dove non ci sono gabbie
dove scorre il tempo
e non lo vuoi trattenere:
Tutto sia come deve essere
brezza leggera o ruvida carezza

Open mind

With an open mind
I free thoughts
because everything goes
and can sprout
or fly elsewhere
where there are no cages
flowing with time
and I do not want to retain:
All is as it should be
gentle breeze or rough caresses

The best of Rolling Stones

I Rolling Stones sono un gruppo musicale rock britannico, composto da Mick Jagger (voce, armonica, chitarra), Keith Richards (chitarre, voce), Ronnie Wood (chitarre, cori) e Charlie Watts (batteria, percussioni). È una delle band più importanti e tra le maggiori espressioni della miscela tra i generi della musica rock e blues, quel genere musicale che è l’evoluzione del rock & roll anni cinquanta, da loro rivisitato in chiave più dura con ritmi lascivi, canto aggressivo, continui riferimenti al sesso e, talvolta, alle droghe pesanti.

Per il loro essere trasgressivi furono chiamati i “brutti, sporchi e cattivi” e contrapposti ai più rassicuranti Beatles, anche se tale contrapposizione fu spesso creata dagli stessi Rolling Stones che si comportavano in modo volutamente antitetico rispetto ai Beatles (con i quali ebbero peraltro sempre un ottimo rapporto di stima e amicizia), proponendo così un modello alternativo a uso e consumo della stampa musicale. I Rolling Stones sono stati, e sono tuttora, un’autentica pietra miliare nell’evoluzione della musica rock del XX secolo, portando sotto i riflettori il malcontento e di conseguenza la protesta di intere generazioni, incarnando così il travagliato spirito dei grandi bluesman del passato e scegliendo il titolo di una canzone di uno di questi (Muddy Waters) come nome del loro gruppo.

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). Stewart was removed from the official line-up in 1963 but continued as occasional pianist until his death in 1985. Jones departed the band less than a month prior to his death in 1969, having already been replaced by Mick Taylor, who remained until 1975. Subsequently, Ronnie Wood has been on guitar in tandem with Richards. Following Wyman’s departure in 1993, Darryl Jones has been the main bassist. Other notable keyboardists for the band have included Nicky Hopkins, active from 1967 to 1982; Billy Preston through the mid 1970s (most prominent on Black and Blue) and Chuck Leavell, active since 1982. The band was first led by Jones but after teaming as the band’s songwriters, Jagger and Richards assumed de facto leadership.

The Rolling Stones were in the vanguard of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US in 1964–65. At first noted for their longish hair as much as their music, the band are identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960s. Critic Sean Egan states that within a year of the release of their 1964 debut album, they “were being perceived by the youth of Britain and then the world as representatives of opposition to an old, cruel order — the antidote to a class-bound, authoritarian culture.”[1] They were instrumental in making blues a major part of rock and roll and of changing the international focus of blues culture, to the less sophisticated blues typified by Chess Records artists such as Muddy Waters, writer of “Rollin’ Stone”, after which the band is named. After a short period of musical experimentation that culminated with the poorly received and largely psychedelic album Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967), the group returned to its bluesy roots with Beggars’ Banquet (1968) which—along with its follow-ups, Let It Bleed (1969), Sticky Fingers (1971) and Exile on Main St. (1972)—is generally considered to be the band’s best work and are considered the Rolling Stones’ “Golden Age”. Musicologist Robert Palmer attributed the “remarkable endurance” of the Rolling Stones to being “rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music”, while “more ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone”.[2]

The band continued to release commercially successful records in the 1970s and sold many albums, with Some Girls (1978) and Tattoo You (1981) being their two most sold albums worldwide. In the 1980s, a feud between Jagger and Richards about the band’s musical direction almost caused the band to split but they managed to patch their relationship and had a big comeback with Steel Wheels (1989) which was followed by a big stadium and arena tour. Since the 1990s, new recorded material from the group has been increasingly less well-received and less frequent. Despite this, the Rolling Stones have continued to be a huge attraction on the live circuit, with big stadium tours in the 1990s and 2000s. By 2007, the band had made what were then four of the top five highest-grossing concert tours of all time (Voodoo Lounge Tour (1994–95), Bridges to Babylon Tour (1997–99), Licks Tour (2002–03) and A Bigger Bang Tour (2005–07).[3]

The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Rolling Stone magazine ranked them fourth on the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list, and their estimated album sales are above 250 million. They have released twenty-nine studio albums, eighteen live albums and numerous compilations. Let It Bleed (1969) was their first of five consecutive number one studio and live albums in the UK. Sticky Fingers (1971) was the first of eight consecutive number one studio albums in the US. In 2008, the band ranked 10th on the Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists chart. In 2012, the band celebrated its 50th anniversary.
