“Beggars Banquet” was the last to have Rolling Stones co-founder Brian Jones included and the first great Stones album…with songs “Street Fighting Man”,”Stray Cat Blues”, and the diabolical “Sympathy for the Devil”. My ultra-rare classic rock interview with original Rolling Stones bass player Bill Wyman, Mick Jagger, & Keith Richards as guests set the table for a “Beggars Banquet” fifty-fifth anniversary the week of December 5.

In his poignant acceptance speech for the Oscar for Best Actor five years ago, Rami Malek pointed out that he himself was a first-generation immigrant who portrayed a gay immigrant in the role of Queen’s Freddie Mercury.

Between 1980 and 1986, the British trio Genesis released a series of four consecutive hit albums, each more successful than its predecessor by as many as five times. Because drummer/singer/songwriter Phil Collins had a parallel solo career take off during that time, reading the critical reviews from many respected music writers in this period imply that Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford and keyboardist Tony Banks unwittingly, if not unwillingly, were somehow led by Collins in a more mainstream pop direction.
