Who The Fuck Is MICK JAGGER? A Man Who Was Knighted SIR 20 Years Ago Today

14 June 2022

Back in 1975 Keef Richards was so fed up with ballerina Mick Jagger that he got
him a t-shirt made with the question Who The Fuck Is Mick Jagger printed on it.

It became a hot selling item for clothing manufacturer back then, but also when
was knighted SIR 20 years ago today in Queen’s Birthday Honours. The Queen
wasn’t present. Story goes that she didn’t like the fact that a rolling stone became a Sir.

C’mon Elizabeth it’s only rock and roll,
but we know you don’t like it…

It’s all over by now. Touring again this year…

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I’m in love
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried


Inbetweenies! BLACK SABBATH Going Paranoid 51 Years Ago Today

What Turn Up The Volume is playing/ watching in between two coffees

Today 51 years ago, on 7 January 1970, metal freaks BLACK SABBATH released their
2nd LP PARANOID. The longplayer was originally titled War Pigs (the opening track) but the record company made it change in the end, out of fear for criticism from supporters of the ongoing Vietnam War. Anyway, the album topped the UK Charts and peaked at #12 in the USA.

Let’s get paranoid again…
