Muddy Waters and The Rolling Stones Video

After re-reading my post on Keith Richards where I dropped the F bomb about how much I love The Rolling Stones, I thought OK, you could be overstating the case a bit.

You know I might be a fan boy or something, then I came across the video below.  And I wanted to be even more emphatic about how much I love these guys, and their music and what I think they have done to promote blues and other blues musicians. 

Again I could write thousands of words and still not describe how cool this video is. 

But I think you can see the love that Muddy Waters had for the Stones and you can also see that they loved Muddy too.

Notes from YouTube: On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon.

Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Buddy Guy's club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform. It didn't take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part.

It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Now, restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time.
