** ''Bridges to Babylon'' only saw problems emerge when it was time to record in LA, as Keith Richards did not like Mick Jagger's plan to invite outside producers such as Music/TheDustBrothers, whose work on Music/{{Beck}}'s ''Odelay'' had impressed Jagger, and looping expert Danny Saber. Richards hated electronic music and refused to work with either of them. He even fired Saber from the album when he found out he was overdubbing guitars. As for The Dust Brothers, they ultimately only worked on three tracks. Most of the album was instead produced by Don Was, who had produced ''Voodoo Lounge''. Midway through production, Was had to keep Jagger and Richards in separate rooms and studios. Richards and his engineer friend had to steal tapes to make sure a track was finished. Charlie Watts, who only went through the conflicts by bonding with famous session percussionist and former [[Music/JohnLennon Plastic Ono Band]] member Jim Keltner, with whom he would make a solo record later. Watt ultimately flew out of Los Angeles as soon as he was not needed anymore. By the end of the sessions, none of the Stones were speaking to one another. It was their last album for nine years.

* TroubledProduction: ''Music/ExileOnMainSt'' had the band members recording in less-than-ideal conditions in France escaping the UK government's heavy taxes, and Keith Richards substance abuse spread to various people of the crew. ''Bridges to Babylon'' had Mick Jagger's intention of working with outside producers not being well-received by Keith, and the working environment suffered for it.

** ''Music/ExileOnMainSt.'' was recorded
in France escaping for tax reasons. Most of the UK government's heavy taxes, backing tracks were recorded in the basement of Richards' villa at Nellcôte, a poorly-ventilated environment where the heat would cause the guitars to go out of tune. Recording took place all night but none of the Stones ever showed up all at the same time - Wyman sat out most of the sessions, Jagger was frequently AWOL and Keith Richards was just getting started on his infamous substance abuse. He was joined in said substance abuse spread to various by Taylor, producer Music/JimmyMiller, session musician Bobby Keys and engineer Andy Johns - Wyman claimed in his autobiography that he, Watts and Jagger were the only people of in the crew. villa who abstained to some degree. The band then took the piecemeal recordings and backing tracks to UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, added all the overdubs and assembled them into ''Exile''.

* ReferencedBy: They're probably second only to Music/TheBeatles in bands receiving {{Shout Out}}s. For instance, the restaurant chain Ruby Tuesday is named after their song, and [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]] was heavily modeled after Keith Richards, as Creator/JohnnyDepp has mentioned in various interviews that, as he observed that pirates were probably the rock stars of their time. Keith even made appearances in a few of the franchises' later movies as Jack's father to [[CastingGag allude to that]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In 1969 they asked Music/JeffBeck to join them, but he turned them down. Can you imagine what ''Music/StickyFingers'' and ''Music/ExileOnMainSt'' would have been like with Beck's guitar heroics? In a way it may be for the best that he didn't join, because that much awesome concentrated in one place might have caused the world to explode.
