If I am going to be honest, I think started to listen to The Rolling Stones to spite my parents as a teenager! I remember my father telling me when I first got my Stereo way back in the late 1970s that he didn't mind rock music, except The Rolling Stones!
Tattoo You is the only actual album I purchased that the Stones produced, though I had 45s (singles for those of you who are not of the vinyl era of music) of many of their hits. To me, Mick Jagger and company are truly the epitome of come backs and staying power. This year marks 50 years of the Stones, and even nay-sayers like my dad have to admit that is pretty darn amazing!
Brown Sugar socks were designed around the very first Rolling Stones song I remember hearing. The color and the style are a bit eclectic. However, I feel that they will become a true classic sock, just like their namesake song!
