Beast Of Burden 45 by The Rolling Stones

March 5, 2012

“Beast Of Burden” is a song that has grown on me down through the years. It was a top ten hit for The Rolling Stones during the fall of 1978.

It was a mid-tempo rock tune that settled in to a nice rock groove. Keith Richard and Ron Wood trade the lead guitar licks, a style they would follow for the next several decades.

It may not be one of their defining songs but it was the late 1970s Stones at their best.
