No. 59: ‘Shattered’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
As the '70s moved forward, the Rolling Stones adapted with the times. Recorded in 1977, 'Shattered' pulled strongly from the punk influence that was starting to emerge in New York City. Mick Jagger got into the spirit; reportedly penning the lyrics for the track in the back of a taxicab.
The group performed the song live on Saturday Night Live in a memorable appearance; with Mick Jagger licking Ronnie Wood's lips and tearing his shirt off, perhaps to prove he wasn't ready for the old age home just yet. Of course, he's liable to do the same thing today, nearly 35 years later.
