Crunchtheall i g a t o r ,

Laughed at your comment. Could have been taken at any of a number of the small venues before gentrificati o n . The cover art is too clean to be CBGBs in New York, Austin's Beach Cabaret, Philly's Kybher Pass, or Churchills here in Miami. Rock n roll needn't be pretty ;-)

Saints and sinners we are all human! My memory of this song is Christmas at the family farm. One of the last with grandma. My dad got a special pressing of beggars banquet. We all danced our best jagger moves and sang loud and out of key.. And laughed and laughed. Wood smoke, ham, pine scent waft around me whenever I hear it! Great song! Better memory!

Listen to/read the words this song. Richards/Jag g e r had the finger on the pulse of the times (much different now?) Food for thought.

Next to Gimme Shelter, Sympathy for the Devil from Beggars Banquet is the best Stones' song. Mick knows who killed Jack and why.

I'm glad they put this song on call of duty black opps
Report as inappropriate
Guns and hoses could never beat the original. They could have if they weren't interested in partying for to long. And a B**ch named sue. Take your Bible belting a** off a rock n roll/ metal page and go to your popular simplistic music that has the devil in it as well. To love you must hate. And I hate church but love playing instruments? Do I go to hell? If so send me. May the hand of God strike me down

Stones didn't play Sympathy live for 25 years after the incident at Altamont.

Sometimes police think everyone 's a criminal, doctors think everyone is sick and priest think everyone is going to hell, ok, this doesn't mean your not

It's everybody. What you see, may not always be what you see.

I read that the devil in this song is actually mankind itself.

Think about it, no devil, = no hell right? Wrong ! So one throws their petrified soul into sin and into the corruption of others , but Jesus is great and ...
