‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ by THE ROLLING STONES
Three reasons to play JUMPIN’ JACK FLASH today. One: that awesome cracker hit the top spot of the US singles chart 39 years ago today (6 July 1968). Two: on 5 July 1969, 38 years ago, THE ROLLING STONES played their legendary free concert in HYDE PARK in central LONDON before an audience of 250,000 as a tribute to BRIAN JONES, the troubled and musically genial co-founder of the Stones who had died two days earlier and Jumpin’ Jack
was part of their set that day. Three: actually I don’t need a specific reason to listen for the millionth time to this steamy blues rocker and its sultry Keef riff. Here’s the greatest and coolest rock and roll band ever… in the park.
