Tumbling Dice 45 by The Rolling Stones

February 29, 2012

When in doubt, write a song about gambling and love. Blues artists have been doing it for almost a century.

“Tumbling Dice” was the lead single from the classic Rolling Stones album, EXILE ON MAIN STREET. It was a commercially successful in the United States reaching number seven on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart during the spring of 1972.

Keith Richards provided the lead guitar work and Mick Taylor some supporting slide guitar. Taylor also provided the bass work as Bill Wyman missed the sessions. The piano work was curtesy of Nicky Hopkins.

It all added up to more good rock ‘n’ roll from The Rolling Stones.
