Singles from the past

The tireless STONES – celebrating their 60th birthday as a band
with a tour right now – had their first 7″ out this day in 1963.

COME ON was written and recorded by rock pioneer Chuck Berry in 1961.

The Stones‘ version was a commercial flop in the UK as well as in the US.
But you know what happened afterward.

C’mon guys, don’t worry, be happy, you’ll have a stream of hits later…
