The Rolling Stones singles chronology

"Fool to Cry" is a ballad[1] by English rock band The Rolling Stones from their 1976 album Black and Blue.

The song was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Mick Taylor had just left the band and the rest of the Stones were left without a lead guitarist. The recording of Black and Blue acted as a sort of audition for new guitarists, which led to session man Wayne Perkins playing guitar on this track.[citation needed] Jagger plays electric piano and Nicky Hopkins performs regular piano on the track, with Hopkins also playing the string synthesizer.

Released as the lead single off Black and Blue on 20 April 1976, "Fool to Cry" reached No. 6 on the UK Singles Chart and No. 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

"Fool to Cry" was the only track from Black and Blue to appear on the Stones' career-spanning greatest hits albums Forty Licks in 2002 and GRRR! in 2012.
