The Rolling Stones - Not Fade Away (Englands' Newest Hitmakers, 1964)


The Rolling Stones - Not Fade Away (Englands' Newest Hitmakers, 1964) "Not Fade Away" is a song credited to Buddy Holly (originally under his first and middle names, Charles Hardin) and Norman Petty (although Petty's co-writing credit is most likely a formality) and first recorded by Holly's band The Crickets.

Still better than 99% of the "rock" today

I still have the first two Stones albums on vinyl dated 1964. Treasures!

This record rocks! Buddy would approve.
James Aladits
Great song! Great chord progression. We should remember where it really came from. Buddy Holly may be credited for writing the song, but he took the chord progression from Bo Diddley!
Kimmo Laine
Their first and their best. This song is made of pure win.

Meine erste Platte der Stones! Bin seitdem natürlich Fan! Mittlerweile gehe ich mit meinem Sohn zum Stones Konzert! Und mein Enkel hört auch schon die Stones! So soll es sein! Fantastisch!!!

On this day in 1964 {June 2nd} the Rolling Stones appeared in concert* for the first time on American soil when they played at the Lynn High School Football Field in Lynn, Massachusetts... At the time the Stones' debut record on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, "Not Fade Away", was at position #82; and on July 12th, 1964 it would peak at #48 {for 1 week} and it stayed on the chart for 13 weeks... * Also performing that night in Lynn, MA were Bobby Goldsboro and Johnny Rivers; and at the time Bobby's "Whenever He Holds You" was at #59 and Johnny's "Memphis" was at #63...

The title of this song pretty much sums up their career up to this point.

Great song! Great chord progression. We should remember where it really came from. Buddy Holly may be credited for writing the song, but he took the chord progression from Bo Diddley!

Joe Strummer said this record really inspired him, made him feel there was hope -- he was stuck in boarding school at the time. Great song, unbelievably short for a hit, but that's how it was back then.

Dear djclay33, I have a request: please credit the authors and originators of this song (Buddy Holly / Norman Petty, and The Crickets) somewhere in the title or notes for this video. Thank you!
Henry Ramsey
Anyone know if Keith had discovered Open-G by this point or was that guitar tuned normally? Buddy of course took the guitar rhythm and much of the melody from Bo Diddly and expanded the guitar part. So Thank you Bo Diddly AND Buddy Holly for this song. RIP!

Yeah that’s what I’m talking ‘bout. Simple 2 chord song executed perfectly. Not like ‘90s+ overwrought tripe.

This is the one that started. Produced by Phil Spector beet came later in summer. Touchdown. Finally the Beatles had a rival. And a bloody good one. Time is on My Side. (next hit) and "Last Time"

Listened to this on "Sounds of the Sixties" the other day  - was amazed that the DJ cut in before the end, and this record is so short as it is !
