“Torn and Frayed” – The Rolling Stones


From side 2 of “Exile on Main Street” (one of the greatest side 2s in rock history) is “Torn and Frayed,” a song that uses the metaphor of a battered coat for the drug-addled and battered psyches of the Stones, circa 1972. Damn, I love that muddy / cruddy mix with the guitar and organ.
