Now if only Brian Epstein had waited a year or so to pay a visit to The Cavern.

Wouldn't that meeting have been fun?

The Stones did have suits, but after one ot two gigs they pretended to 'lose' them and left them behind in a dressing room somewhere. I think it Andrew L-Oldham who bought them the suits so they looked legit. Legit shit!

Yeah, those houndstooth jackets---and I think there were cumberbunds and everything! I read that each one started "losing" a piece or two of their ensemble, and after a couple of weeks, no one tried to "suit up" the Stones again... Tongue

Nov. 23, 1889: S.F. Gin Joint Hears the World's First Jukebox
By Tony Long 11.23.07

...
For a nickel apiece a thrilled group tunes in on a screechy jukebox of the 1890s.
Photo: Bettmann/Corbis

1889: The first jukebox is installed at the Palais Royale Saloon in San Francisco. It becomes an overnight sensation, and its popularity spreads around the world.

That first jukebox was constructed by the Pacific Phonograph Company. Four stethoscope-like tubes were attached to an Edison Class M electric phonograph fitted inside an oak cabinet. The tubes operated individually, each being activated by the insertion of a coin, meaning that four different listeners could be plugged in to the same song simultaneously.
Towels were supplied to patrons so they could wipe off the end of the tube after each listening.

The success of the jukebox eventually spelled the end of the player piano, then the most common way of pounding out popular music to a line of thirsty barflies.
The machine was originally called the “nickel-in-the-slot player” by Louis Glass, the entrepreneur who installed it at the Palais Royale. (A nickel then had the buying power of $1.08 today.) It came to be known as the jukebox only later, although the origin of the word remains a bit vague. It may derive from “juke house,” a slang reference to bawdy house, where music was not unknown.

On this day in 1997, Jimmy Rogers died.



...

In 1947, Rogers, Muddy Waters and Little Walter began playing together
as Muddy Waters' first band in Chicago (sometimes referred to as "The
Headcutters" or "The Headhunters" due to their practice of stealing jobs
from other local bands), while the band members each recorded and
released music credited to each of them as solo artists. The first Muddy
Waters band defined the sound of the nascent "Chicago Blues" style
(more specifically "South Side" Chicago Blues). Rogers made several
more sides of his own with small labels in Chicago, but none were
released at the time. He began to enjoy success as a solo artist with
Chess Records in 1950, scoring a hit with "That's All Right", but he
stayed with Muddy Waters until 1954. In the mid 1950s he had
several successful releases on the Chess label, most featuring
either Little Walter Jacobs or Big Walter Horton on harmonica,
most notably "Walking By Myself", but as the 1950s drew to a
close and interest in the blues waned, he gradually withdrew
from the music industry.

In the early 1960s Rogers briefly worked as a member of Howling
Wolf's band, before quitting the music business altogether for almost
a decade. He worked as a taxicab driver and owned a clothing store
that burned down in the Chicago riots that followed the assassination
of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. He gradually began performing
in public again, and in 1971 when fashions made him a reasonable
draw in Europe, Rogers began occasionally touring and recording,
including a 1977 reunion session with his old bandleader Muddy
Waters. By 1982, Rogers was again a full-time solo artist.

...


In 1995 Rogers was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Rogers

He continued touring and recording albums until his death from colon
cancer in Chicago in 1997. His last album, "Blues Blues Blues", was
released posthumously. It features Mick Jagger and Keith Richards,
among other luminaries.

featuring Keith Richards and The Band.

Edith - thanks for keeping the Stone Days going. I forget/too busy to check. Searched for that "hairdresser's ad but could find nowhere.

FTP - Neat picture of Keith and Scott. Looked further. Found this below. Do you believe the sessions were filmed and someone is sitting on them!!!

Blue Moonlighting
Making Film and Music History Simultaneously
by Jim Ridley
From Nashville Scene, August 1, 1996.
Copyright © 1996, CityPress Publishing, Inc.

On Tuesday, July 9, at a small recording studio in upstate New York, a Nashville film crew was on hand as musical history was made. As video and audio tape rolled into the wee, wee hours, five decades of rock 'n' roll greats, including members of the Band, the Rolling Stones, the Rock 'n' Roll Trio, and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, gathered at Band drummer Levon Helm's studio in Woodstock, N.Y., for an all-night jam session of epic proportions.

The occasion was the visit of two of rock 'n' roll's most influential players, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana, who are recording tracks for an upcoming album and accompanying documentary. As guitarist and drummer for Elvis Presley's 1950s backing band, the Blue Moon Boys, Moore and Fontana helped ignite a revolution in pop music that has never been quelled. Since 1968, when they reunited to back Elvis in his dramatic '68 comeback TV special, they've largely remained outside the spotlight, focusing on session work and side careers.

That will change next year with the release of a feature-length documentary on the Blue Moon Boys, which coincides with Moore and Fontana's new album and the publication of Moore's long-awaited autobiography. (It also coincides with the 20th anniversary of Elvis' death in 1977.) The album is being recorded in sessions around the country with an all-star guest list, which so far includes the Mavericks, Tracy Nelson, the Tractors, Cheap Trick, Joe Ely, the BoDeans, Chet Atkins, and the reformed Bill Black Combo--whose founder, the late bassist Bill Black, rounded out the Blue Moon Boys. The sessions are being filmed by Nashville director Thom Oliphant, who has followed Moore and Fontana on a sentimental journey through the Memphis, Louisiana, and Arkansas of rock 'n' roll's infancy.

"We wanted to tell the story from their point of view," says Dan Griffin, who is coproducing the documentary with Philip Cheney, a member (with Oliphant) of the local film-production group known as the Collective. "They're probably the only people in the Elvis world that haven't cashed in on it." The model for the documentary, he says, is Let's Get Lost, Bruce Weber's haunting 1989 portrait of the late jazz trumpeter Chet Baker.

Where the musical footage in that film was somber, however, the raucous atmosphere at Helm's Woodstock studio sounds anything but. Keith Richards, who has called Moore "the man who made me want to play," brought his 82-year-old father Bert. Helm brought longtime Bandmates Rick Danko and Garth Hudson, along with relative newcomers Jim Weider, Richard Bell, and Randy Cairlante. Former Heartbreakers drummer Stan Lynch produced. (Other tracks have been produced by D'Ville Records impresario Garry Tallent.) After laying down a guitar track with Moore, Richards swapped vocals with Helm on a sweltering number called "Deuce and a Quarter," which was penned by Nashvillians Gwil Owen and Kevin Gordon.

The evening only got hotter, as Graham Parker, Marshall Crenshaw, and Rock 'n' Roll Trio guitarist Paul Burlison joined the group for a jam session that was still going strong at 4 a.m. The roomful of legends tore through cover after cover, including a hair-raising version of "Willie and the Hand Jive" that found Richards playing a floor tom while Fontana and Helm dueled on their kits. (The gifted Nashville photographer Jim Herrington, who has ably chronicled the Lower Broadway honky-tonk scene, was snapping pictures all the while.) In total, Moore and Fontana spent three days in Woodstock, thus giving the moviemakers 24 solid hours of High-8 studio footage. "It was the most incredible musical moment of my life," Griffin says.

The documentary promises other treats as well. Rare footage taken in 1969, during sessions for the album Mother Earth Country, shows Moore, Fontana, and Tracy Nelson performing in Moore's Nashville studio with the Jordanaires, Charlie McCoy, and Pete Drake. The footage was shot, intriguingly enough, by noted underground filmmaker Robert Frank, director of the often-bootlegged Rolling Stones documentary Cocksucker Blues.

Griffin says the film has been in the works for nearly five years, but it gathered steam with the participation of Moore, who in the past had understandably shied away from the deluge of Elvis-related projects. "I've never seen Scotty happier," Griffin said after the Woodstock sessions. As dawn approached after hours of jamming, Moore was seen passing Burlison in the hall on the way to his room. "Paul, don't you steal any of my licks," joked Moore to the man whose fuzzbomb technique on "Train Kept A Rollin' " is considered a milestone in rock 'n' roll guitar. Burlison is said to have laughed. Watch for the documentary early in the fall of 1997 and the LP next spring.

Guess we have Andrew to thank for that one. And he's supposed to be a publicist?!!

The picture of Keith is scary.

Tampa Red (January 8, 1904[1] – March 19, 1981), born Hudson Woodbridge but known
from childhood as Hudson Whittaker, was an American blues musician.

Tampa Red is best known as an accomplished and influential
blues guitarist who had a unique single-string slide style. His
songwriting and his silky, polished "bottleneck" technique
influenced other leading Chicago blues guitarists, such as
Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Nighthawk, as well as Muddy
Waters, Elmore James, Mose Allison and many others.
In a career spanning over 30 years he also recorded pop,
R&B and hokum records. His best known recordings include
the classic compositions 'It's Tight Like That', 'Black Angel
Blues', 'Crying Won't Help You', 'It Hurts Me Too', and 'Love
Her with a Feeling'".

...

In 1928, Tampa Red became the first black musician to
play a National steel-bodied resonator guitar, the loudest
and showiest guitar available before amplification, acquiring
one in the first year they were available. This allowed him
to develop his trademark bottleneck style, playing single
string runs, not block chords, which was a precursor to
later blues and rock guitar soloing. The National guitar
he used was a gold-plated tricone, which was found in
Illinois in the 1990s by music-shop owner and guitarist
Randy Clemens and later sold to the "Experience Music
Project" in Seattle. Tampa Red was known as "The Guitar
Wizard".

Born this day in 1924 - the great Slim Harpo!

...
Born James Moore in Lobdell, Louisiana, the eldest in
an orphaned family, he worked as a longshoreman and
building worker during the late 1930s and early 1940s.
He began performing in Baton Rouge bars under the name
Harmonica Slim and later accompanied his brother-in-law,
Lightnin' Slim, both live and in the studio.

Named Slim Harpo by producer J.D. "Jay" Miller, he started
his own recording career in 1957. His solo debut was the
Grammy Hall of Fame single "I'm a King Bee" backed with
"I Got Love If You Want It."

Harpo recorded with Miller in Crowley, Louisiana for Excello
Records, based in Nashville, Tennessee, and enjoyed a string
of popular R&B singles, including Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
inductee "Rainin' In My Heart" (1961) and the number one
Billboard R&B hit "Baby Scratch My Back" (1966). On these
recordings he was accompanied by the regular stable of
Excello musicians, including Lazy Lester.

Never a full-time musician, Harpo had his own trucking
business during the 1960s.

...
He died following a heart attack in 1970 at
the age of 46, and was buried in Mulatto Bend
Cemetery in Port Allen, Louisiana.

...
The Rolling Stones recorded Slim's "I'm A King Bee" on their first album,
and "Shake Your Hips" on Exile On Main St. Both are faithful to the original
recordings, unlike their Robert Johnson covers which they tended to radically
rewrite.

...
The Stones' first live album is called "Got LIVE If You Want It", a reference
to Slim's "Got Love If You Want It".

On this day in 1968, Johnny Cash played two shows at Folsom Prison.

...
The resulting live album took Cash's flagging career to new heights.

No Stones content, you say?

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

Today in Music History - Feb. 4
The Canadian Press
Sat, 4 Feb 2012

Today is Feb. 4:

In 1894, Belgian musician and inventor Adolphe Sax died at 79. He gave the world the saxophone, the saxtromba and the sax horn.

In 1928, "Les Disciples de Massenet," a 65-voice mixed choir, was founded in Montreal by Charles Goulet. By 1979, its 51st anniversary, the choir was estimated to have given 1,500 performances, including several tours of Europe.

In 1948, Vincent Fournier, better known as Alice Cooper, was born in Detroit. His rock 'n' roll horror show in the 1970's featured chicken-killing and snake-fondling while singing such songs as "Refrigerator Heaven" and "I'm Eighteen." Cooper went into semi-retirement in 1977, when alcohol problems forced him to undergo hospital treatment. He later returned to performing. He released his 25th studio album, "Along Came a Spider," in July, 2008.

In 1962, Capitol Records of Canada released "The Beatles'" "Love Me Do," more than two years before the single was released in the U.S. Former Capitol A&R man Paul White says "Love Me Do" sold a grand total of 88 (correct) copies. The follow-up, "Please, Please Me," did little better, but the third single, "She Loves You," went to the top of the Canadian charts. Three "Beatles" albums -- "Beatlemania! With the Beatles," "Twist and Shout" and "Long Tall Sally" -- came out in Canada before the group had made much impact in the U.S.

In 1969, Columbia Records signed Johnny Winter to a five-year, $300,000 contract, which was unprecedented for a new artist.

In 1971, "The Osmonds" received their first gold record, for "One Bad Apple."

In 1977, "American Bandstand" ran a special 25th anniversary show on ABC television. Among the highlights were Chuck Berry. An all-star band, including Charlie Daniels, "The Pointer Sisters" and Gregg Allman, jammed on "Roll Over Beethoven."

In 1982, British rocker Alex Harvey died, one day short of his 47th birthday.

In 1983, singer Karen Carpenter died at her parents' home in Los Angeles of a heart attack brought on by her running battle with anorexia nervosa. Her death at the age of 32 brought about more public awareness of the disease, characterized by a loss of appetite brought on by mental illness. "The Carpenters" -- Karen and her brother Richard -- first gained notice in 1970 with their soft-rock cover version of "The Beatles" "Ticket to Ride." Later that year came their first chart-topping record, "Close to You." That was followed by a dozen other hits, including two other No. 1s, "Top of the World" in 1973 and "Please Mr. Postman" in 1975.

In 1987, Liberace, the flashy entertainer who earned the title "Mr. Showmanship," died at his home in Palm Springs, Calif., at age 67. His doctor said Liberace had been gravely ill for weeks from a combination of anemia, emphysema and heart disease. But a later autopsy revealed that Liberace died from a form of pneumonia caused by AIDS. Liberace dazzled audiences for four decades with his romantic piano flourishes and outrageous costumes. His trademark was candelebras adorning his pianos.

In 1989, Jethro Burns, the mandolin-playing half of the country music duo "Homer and Jethro," died in Evanston, Ill., of cancer. He was 69.

In 1989, Australian Trevor Lucas, a veteran of the British folk-rock bands "Fotheringay" and "Fairport Convention," died in Sydney of a heart attack. He was 45.

In 1995, "The Rolling Stones" played before the largest crowd on their "Voodoo Lounge" tour, 100,000 people at a the real football stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

In 1996, Rob Pilatus of the defunct pop duo "Milli Vanilli" was clobbered with a baseball bat after he tried to break into a car and a house in Los Angeles. Residents held him until police arrived. He was sentenced to a total of 90 days in jail for that incident and two other violent confrontations. Pilatus and partner Fabrice Moran were stripped of their best new artist Grammy in 1990 after it was revealed that they hadn't sung a note on their hit album "Girl, You Know It's True." Pilatus was found dead in Frankfurt, Germany, on April 4, 1998. He was 32.

In 2001, J.J. Johnson, the most influential trombonist in postwar jazz, committed suicide in Indianapolis at 77. He translated the fast, linear style of bebop to the trombone in the late 1940's. His career included leading his own band, playing with legends like Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, and composing.

In 2003, Charles Biddle, a bassist who promoted the first Montreal International Jazz Festival and launched his own club, died at age 76.

In 2009, it was announced that Barbara Mandrell, Roy Clark and Charlie McCoy would become the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony was held on May 17.

In 2009, multiple Grammy winner Shakira dedicated a $6 million school sponsored by her foundation, Pies Descalzos, to the humble La Playa district in her hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia. The 13,000-square-metre school will cater to 1,800 students and is the fifth the singer-songwriter's foundation has built.

In 2009, Lux Interior (real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser), co-founder and lead singer of the pioneering horror-punk band "The Cramps," died at age 62. The group was a part of the late '70's early punk scene centred at Manhattan clubs like CBGB, alongside acts like "The Ramones" and Patti Smith. The band's breakthrough debut EP was 1979's "Gravest Hits."

In 2010, a Federal Court in Sydney ruled that the Australian band "Men at Work" stole the flute melody from their hit 1982 song "Down Under," the country's unofficial anthem, from the children's song "Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree" which was written by teacher Marion Sinclair for the Girl Guides in 1935. Sinclair died in 1988, and publishing company Larrikin Music sued in 2009 over the song. On Feb. 25, the band's record company, EMI, appealed the decision. On July 6, a judge ordered EMI, and songwriters Colin Hay and Ron Strykert, to pay five per cent of royalties earned from the song since 2002 and from its future earnings. EMI appealed again. On Oct. 7, 2011, the band lost their final court bid to prove they did not steal the distinctive flute riff.
