The Rolling Stones – Sympathie For The Devil

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962 who were in the vanguard of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US in 1964–65. The Rolling Stones were at first noted for their longish hair as much as their music and are identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960s. The band was 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“, the song after which the band is named. American music critic Robert Palmer said the Rolling Stones‘ „remarkable endurance“ stems from being „rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music“ while „more ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone“.

Sympathy for the Devil“ is a song by The Rolling Stones which first appeared as the opening track on their 1968 album Beggars Banquet. It was written by Mick Jagger and credited to Jagger/Richards. Rolling Stone magazine placed it at No. 32 in their list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The songwriting partnership of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, known as Jagger/Richards (and occasionally Richards/Jagger), is a musical collaboration whose output has produced the majority of the catalogue of The Rolling Stones.

In addition to Jagger and Richards’s songwriting partnership, they have also produced or co-produced numerous Rolling Stones albums under the pseudonym The Glimmer Twins.
