Gimme Shelter Deconstructed

Check out this great new link breaking down all the elements of quite possibly the greatest Rolling Stones song, Gimme Shelter. I could tell you to focus on one element but they are all so essential.  I guess I will say at least listen to Charlie Watts’ drum brilliance.  It’s a great song just listening to him.  So start with this drum track and then click on the other elements.  Just shows the brilliance of this band during 1969.

Here is Stones backup singer solo take on it.  A gem by Merry Clayton.
