The Ultimate Stones are a unique tribute to the Rolling Stones in that they bring to the stage, many elements of the Rolling Stones’ recordings that were augmented by back up vocals, keyboards, saxophones and percussion. This gives The Ultimate Stones the unique ability to reproduce some of the more creative, sophisticated and complex songs the Rolling Stones have recorded.
The Ultimate Stones came out of the gate with Start Me Up, an apt song and song title to open their show. They continued with Brown Sugar, Honky Tonk Women and a version of Sympathy for the Devil, with Becker dressed in his devil red costume with top hat!
One of the more challenging songs the band brought forth was a classic track from the Stones Sticky Fingers LP that Becker introduced with a sense of Jagger flamboyance by saying; here’s one from Sticky Fingers, Y’all got Sticky Fingers tonight!!! The band then faithfully reproduced the entirety of the song, “Can You HearMme Knockin’ ” with all the keys, saxophone, guitars, and Jagger swagger to make any Stones fan say, damn these guys are good!
The Ultimate Stones also played other fan faves such as Miss You, Satisfaction and Gimme Shelter with Harris nailing those crazy/serious backups originally sung by Merry Clayton.
