Video Du Jour: The Rolling Stones w/Muddy Waters

In November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago to play three 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 Muddy Waters perform.

It wasn’t long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart jumped on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also came up. Of course it was all captured on tape, and it’s now available on DVD as Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones Live At The Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago 1981.

With sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time. Check your local video store or Amazon.com, or you can order at the link below the video.
