Cher On Why The Rolling Stones Didn’t Fit Very Well In Los Angeles
In a recent conversation with Raised On Radio, Cher revealed that her favorite Rolling Stones track was ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.’ While talking about the song, Cher noted that the band members did not fit well in Los Angeles when they first went there.
The Rolling Stones have been a prominent figure in the rock scene since the beginning of their career in 1962. They initially gained a reputation by creating the hit songs such as ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,’ ‘Get Off of My Cloud,’ and ‘Paint It Black.’
Later, they released the debut album ‘Aftermath,’ which had an important place as an artistic breakthrough for the group. This album, in which they combined elements of rock and roll, blues, and soul, received many positive reviews from music critics in the UK and US. The band continued to climb the ladder of success and released impactful records like ‘Sticky Fingers’ and ‘Steel Wheels.’
They have been so passionate about the music they have created that they still meet their fans by organizing tours. The group hit the road for ‘The Sixty Tour‘ in March 2022. The members have had memorable moments with the fans during the shows. Also, it was announced that a documentary would be released to celebrate the group’s 60-year music career.
Recently, the Goddess of Pop, Cher, shared her favorite Rolling Stones track, ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.’ Cher said she found the band members very kind when she met them in Los Angeles. According to the musician, they did not fit into the city as they had difficulties trusting people there. When they returned, The Rolling Stones released the track, and Cher found it excellent, as she revealed.
Cher explained in her words:
“We met the Stones when they first came to LA, and they were very nice boys. But, they didn’t fit in very well in Los Angeles. They didn’t trust anybody because they were a bunch of suit people and then a few people like us. So, we went on a couple of shows with them, and they came back and had this great song. It was the first time we ever heard it, and it was ‘Satisfaction.’ I just remember thinking, ‘Ah, this is the greatest song I’ve ever heard.’”
