57 years ago today, on 4 February 1966, THE ROLLING STONES released
19TH NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. One of their best ever masterstrokes in
my book. It peaked at #2 in the UK and in the US
Mick Jagger: “It’s a song about things that are happening around me ,
everyday life as I see it. People say I’m always singing about pills and
breakdowns, therefore I must be an addict – this is ridiculous. Some
people are so narrow-minded they won’t admit to themselves that
this really does happen to other people besides pop stars.”
You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown…

CHARLIE WATTS, the coolest drummer ever in rock history passed away
a year ago today. He was 80. The quiet Stone with the poker face joined
the band in 1963 and played on every album of the band.
Rest in peace, legend.
Great personality, great musician, great interview.
His hilarious quote after 25 years of Rolling Stones.
About the 60s

The late great Cream drummer Ginger Baker was definitely not a Stones fan.

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…
Chuck Berry original…
