Honest Trash

April 21st, 2008 by · No Comments

I would have to agree with Cohn’s opinion about the Rolling Stones being ‘honest trash.’ The easiest way to put that would be is that they do not present themselves to be anything other then trashy. Not by lyrics, but simply because of the clothing they wear, and how they allow themselves to be viewed by the public, in most cases drunk. This is not to say that the Stones are a bad influence but that their image is partly determined by the era they grew out of and into. They were also part of the British invasion, but had a very different look from the Beatles, the Kinks, and other groups that came over from the UK.

Being called Trash, as the Stones were, could either make or break a group’s reputation.
