…and turned up loud, Keith Richards and Ron Wood‘s guitar work in this 1980 Rolling Stones song is pure raunchy pleasure.
“A simple power-chord rocker telling a clueless lover to get lost. But what ‘Let Me Go’ lacks in depth, it makes up for in punk-rock attitude. Richards slashes away and Wood provides Creedence-y licks, while Jagger contemplates hanging out at gay bars and tells his soon-to-be ex-lover, ‘Can’t you get it through your thick head this affair is dead as a doornail?'” — from Rolling Stone‘s “100 Greatest Rolling Stones Songs.”
