The story behind this video with Muddy Waters.
On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago. They planned to play 3 concert nights at the Rosemont Horizon.
Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to the Checkerboard Lounge club. They want to see the legendary bluesman – Muddy Waters. 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.
