The Rolling Stones decided earlier in October to nix their early 1970s hit song “Brown Sugar” over its references to slavery for their upcoming concert performances.
The Stones have resumed touring across the U.S. in 2021 after cancelling all of their concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The legendary rock ‘n’ roll band made the decision to remove “Brown Sugar” from their list of 80 songs performed at rehearsals due to its lyrics, The Los Angeles Times reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
The opening lyrics of the song go as follows: “Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields/Sold in the market down in New Orleans/Scarred old slaver knows he’s doing alright/Hear him whip the women just around midnight.”
The report quotes Keith Richards, the band’s co-songwriter and guitarist, as saying, “I don’t know. I’m still trying to figure that one out with the sisters quite where the beef is. Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery? But they’re trying to bury it.”
“At the moment I don’t want to get into conflicts with all of this sh*t. But I’m hoping that we’ll be able to resurrect the babe in her glory somewhere along the track,” Richards added.
Regarding the conspicuous absence of “Brown Sugar” in the Stones current set lists, Mick is diplomatic and Keith is decidedly not. pic.twitter.com/dNMisEXiPu
