Live Licks is a double live album by The Rolling Stones and was released in 2004. Coming six years after No Security, this seventh official Rolling Stones full-length live release captures performances from the band's year-long 2002–2003 Licks Tour in support of their career-spanning retrospective Forty Licks.


 [hide*1 History


Of the special guests taking part, Sheryl Crow appears on "Honky Tonk Women", while Solomon Burke sings on his own "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", which The Rolling Stones originally covered on The Rolling Stones No. 2 in 1965.

The Rolling Stones released two subtly different versions of cover art for Live Licks. While both feature the Rolling Stones logo's tongue in a very suggestive context, the British version features the woman without her bikini top.[citation needed]

Live Licks peaked at No. 38 in the UK[citation needed] and No. 50 in the US[citation needed], though it became a gold record on 9. December 2004 according to the RIAA.[ʌ3]
