40 YEARS AGO: THE ROLLING STONES’ ‘STAR STAR’ GETS BANNED BY THE BBC
by Dave Lifton September 10, 2013 11:57 AM

...
Fin Costello, Getty Images

On Sept. 10, 1973, the Rolling Stones broke a 10-year history of clean, upstanding living when the BBC announced that ‘Star Star,’ a song off their then-new album ‘Goats Head Soup,’ was banned on account of its obscene lyrics.

The Chuck Berry-styled rocker deals with a woman for whom Mick Jagger is just another celebrity notch on her presumably rhinestone-studded belt. Written as “Starf—er,’ its name was changed at the behest of Atlantic Records chief Ahmet Ertegun. However, the chorus, which features Jagger repeatedly calling the woman by the slur in the original title.

As if the lyrics weren’t direct enough, Jagger drove the point home in concert. During the performance of that song on the 1975 tour, a giant inflatable penis would appear on the stage, which Jagger would ride.

Another source of controversy was in the final verse, where Jagger hears rumors about her sexual activity with actor Steve McQueen, and that she had her eyes set on Hollywood legend John Wayne. Perhaps the latter was a bit too iconoclastic. In the live version from 1978 embedded below, Jagger changes the lyric to take a shot at a fellow rocker. “Jimmy Page / Was quite a rage / I could not see the reason why.”

Despite being banned by the BBC, it was nonetheless released as a single in more permissive European countries like Germany and France.

September 16th 1977 - Marc Bolan, rock vocalist/guitarist (T Rex), dies in a car crash at 29
From The Indepentdent
http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/mystery-of-marc-bolan...
Mystery of Marc Bolan's death solved
On the 35th anniversary of the glam rock star's death in a car accident, an eyewitness reveals what happened
The death of Marc Bolan has its own legend. Fans from around the world have converged on the tree in south-west London where the glam rock star drew his last breath 35 years ago today. Now, however, it has been revealed the legend was wrong.

For the first time, an eyewitness to the devastation of the car crash that killed the rock star tells her story to a national newspaper. Vicky Aram, 77, a former nightclub singer, was invited back from a party by Bolan, his girlfriend Gloria Jones and Jones's brother Richard to discuss musical projects. Following them in a separate car, Ms Aram was at the scene seconds after the impact.

It was thought Bolan was killed when his car hit the now much-beribboned sycamore tree. He was, in fact, killed when his Mini hit a steel-reinforced fence post. Where previously he had been thought to have been crushed to death in the car, a new book reveals he suffered a horrific head injury from an eye bolt in the fence. The book also reveals that the tree so despised by fans actually prevented the car from sliding down an embankment and causing an even worse tragedy.

The revelations come in a new biography, published this weekend, Ride a White Swan: The Lives and Death of Marc Bolan written by the journalist Lesley-Ann Jones.

Speaking to The Independent on Sunday this weekend, Ms Aram described how she was driving just seconds behind Bolan on the ill-fated night: "As I came over the bridge with Richard [Jones] beside me, I can still in my mind see, so clearly, a purple car which looked like a little beetle. It was upright and it was smoking and there was a tiny glimmer of light from the moon, the night was so still."

The "little beetle" was the Mini driven by Gloria Jones. Ms Aram said she didn't immediately stop at the car but drove a few metres past it.

"I said 'we've got to get them out, this car might blow up'. I took my mother's rug from the back of my car and put it on the ground. Some of the fans are comforted by the fact he was laid on a nice lady's rug. I don't think Richard thought Marc was dead, but I knew he was. Gloria was groaning and almost conscious. But Richard cried and said 'please don't leave me'." In an eerie parallel with Bolan's death, Ms Aram said she crashed into a tree on the way to give evidence at Bolan's inquest a month later.

At the height of his fame in the early to mid-1970s, Bolan – born Mark Feld – outsold Jimi Hendrix and The Who with his band T Rex. But his good looks, catchy songs, air of mystique and untimely death at the age of 29 meant interest in the star has never waned.

Fee Warner, founder of the T Rex Action Group, bought the land where the sycamore tree stands to stop it from being felled. She and volunteers preserve the shrine dedicated to Bolan. Ms Warner, 53, said: "A lot of people don't realise there was a fence between the tree and the road, because the fence was removed. When we came to build some steps, we found that when they had taken the fences away, they had taken away the ones that were undamaged, but the damaged ones had become buried on the site. That explains something which I have never been able to understand: why the damage to the tree is far higher than anything a Mini could have done."

The long lines started to form shortly after 8 a.m. Friday, September 25, 1981 when area radio stations announced tickets were on sale at Texas Stadium for the Rolling Stones concert October 31 at the Cotton Bowl.  Two well-know Texas bands, ZZ Top and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, also will perform.


Here’s a shot from the concert; that’s Mick Jagger in the cowboy hat.

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?


I hate to break the fun, but it was The Beatles who got The Stones to write songs, I mean we all love The Stones but in reality The Stones were a Rhythm & Blues band exclusivity & The Beatles had a talent for songwriting pop songs or songs that even the Grandma's could like.

Happy Birthday Brian Jones
Thank you! since...........
Original Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman said of Jones, "He formed the band. He chose the members. He named the band. He chose the music we played. He got us gigs. ... Very influential, very important, and then slowly lost it -- highly intelligent -- and just kind of wasted it and blew it all away."

In 1967, The Rolling Stones played their first concert behind the Iron Curtain, in Warsaw, Poland. Riot police had to step in to deal with 2,000 people who weren't able to get tickets.

In 1971, The Rolling Stones released "Brown Sugar," the first record on their own label, Rolling Stone Records.


In 1979, singer David Lee Roth of Van Halen collapsed onstage in Spokane, Washington, due to exhaustion.

In 1989, entertainer Jack Jones received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He's probably best known for singing the "Love Boat" theme.
