Oh to have been alive at a time when The Rolling Stones were at the peak of their game. As it happens, even my parents were not really old enough in 1965 to appreciate just how fantastic the Stones were in their heyday, so the likelihood of seeing their faces amongst the plethora of screaming fans is pretty minimal. But Oh, to have been there.
For me, this video encapsulates all that is great about British rock music, back when we couldn’t keep up to date on twitter, or show our friends on facebook. Let’s rewind then, crowd around the tv, and bask in smug glory at the simple fact that the UK has produced one of the most successful, revered and popular artists of all time. Enjoy.
