This was perhaps my favorite song from Phish’s Festival 8 Halloween costume performance this past weekend. Here are the Stones performing the song from ’02.
Police in Sussex, in southern England, have confirmed they are examining documents given to them by an investigative journalist who has been researching events surrounding Jones’ death. (more…)
“Route 66” was written by Bobby Troup and first recorded by Nat King Cole. The song was written during a road trip to Los Angeles traveling on (you guessed it) Route 66. The famous highway originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, before ending at Los Angeles, encompassing a total of 2,448 miles. Here are the Stones performing the song in ’76 at Knebworth.
Keith Richards crashed his car in southeast England after falling asleep at the wheel. Police found marijuana and cocaine on the guitarist, which resulted in more legal issues for Keef.
Question: What groupie of the 1970’s lost her virginity to Eric Clapton, had affairs with John Lennon, George Harrison, Jimmy Page and married a Rolling Stone? 5….4….3….2….1….. Give up?
Answer: Krissy Wood. Apparently she met Ron Wood when he was still a member of the Small Faces and married him in 1971. Wood soon became a member of the Stones and wrote the songs (with Keith Richards) “Breathe On Me” and “Mystifies Me” in her honor. She had an affair with Lennon while he was married to Yoko (mid-’73), an affair with Harrison after travelling with him to visit Salvador Dali (early ’73) while he was still married to Patti and an affair with Jimmy Page in the summer of ’74. All occured while she was still married to Ron Wood.
Whoa, pallie! Is that Dino shredding an electric guitar solo? Looks like it. Dino wasn’t a big fan of rock and roll, even though his son, Dino Jr., played with Desi Arnaz Jr. in 60’s bubble gum pop group, Dino, Desi & Billy. Here’s Dino introducing The Rolling Stones on his show in 1964. Apparently the Stones didn’t appreciate Dean’s sarcasm when speaking about them to the crowd and didn’t play their scheduled second song.
