Six years after Their Satanic Majesties Request, The Rolling Stones released an album in 1973 entitled Goat’s Head Soup, containing the song Dancing with Mr. D. The Stones have had a proliferation of hits. One of their biggest was Sympathy For the Devil, a song narrated by Lucifer in the first person. Other interesting album titles include Hot Rocks, Steel Wheels and Rolling Gold which could all refer to the sun. The sun could even be referred to as a rolling stone since it revolves on its axis like all the other planets and is rolling through the galaxy on its orbit around the galactic core.

"We receive our songs by inspiration, like at a seance" (Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, Rolling Stone, May 5, 1977, p. 55).
