“Since 1970, we have been playing’Brown Sugar’ every night, so sometimes you think,’Let’s take it out now and see how it works,'” he said. “We might put it back.”
Keith Richards told The New York Times that he hopes to be able to play a certain version of this song in the future.
“I’m trying to figure out where the beef is with my sisters. Don’t they understand that this is a song about the horror of slavery? But they are trying to bury it. At the moment I don’t want to conflict with all these sh * ,”He said. “But I hope we can resurrect this baby somewhere along the track.”
Released in 1971, the opening statement of “Brown Sugar” mentioned a woman being sold as a slave and whipped at midnight. The chorus in the song includes “Brown Sugar”, referring to black women, asking “Why are you so delicious?”
