Musics unsung heros part 2….
Gimme Shelter is one of my favourite Rolling Stones tunes and the backing vocals are pretty amazing and really lift the song. If you havent seen the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom its one you should watch to see the story behind some of the backing singers that quietly do their business for the popular songs we all love.
This is a stand out scene from the movie. The isolated vocal track gives you chills every time. Apparently she was pregnant at the time and miscarried soon after, possibly due to the belting it out singing this track…
