  1. How do people feel about The Stones self-censoring by choosing not to play Brown Sugar during their last concert tour.

    Jagger said he likely wouldn’t have written the song today. But Keith waffles by saying “don’t people realize it is about the horrors of slavery.”

    The music is so typical rock and roll that I doubt many people are actually paying all that much attention to the lyrics. I would be curious to know if it still gets regular play on classic rock stations.
