The Last of the Voodoos: A Rock & Roll Retrospective
Kandia Crazy Horse, Black Renaissance Noire, January 2002
This essay was originally published in NYU Africanist Manthia Diawaras Black Renaissance/Renaissance Noire [Vol.3, No.2, Spring 2001]. Since the very weird period when I wrote the piece, I have not really changed my mind about the Rolling Stones nor have I done a rewrite to suit RBP's radically different audience (despite negative reactions I have garnered from some quarters). I still admire Brian Jones, Charlie Watts & Anita Pallenberg, as well as having a curious fondness for Keith Richards.
