Stone age blues

After 50 years, the Rolling Stones are still at it and by all accounts, ripping up London’s O2 in their first gigs for 5 years.  They are now in old bluesman territory agewise, so here’s a great clip of an impromptu performance with Muddy Waters when Jagger and the boys visited Buddy Guy’s Checkerboard Lounge Club in Chicago 1981. Particularly like the shots of Keef swigging straight from a bottle of Jack and the hairdo on the waitress!

The footage has recently been restored and you can watch the whole film on BBC iPlayer.
