this week –
MUDDY WATERS &
THE ROLLING STONES
Live at The Checkerboard Lounge, occurred on
November 22, 1981 in Chicago.
The Stones were crossing the US on tour when they had a night off in Chicago. Muddy Waters was in town, performing at Buddy Guy’s club, The Checkerboard Lounge.
Obviously, the Stones stopped in to check him out. Muddy soon called Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, Keith Richards and Ian Stewart (the band’s touring piano player and one of its earliest semi-members) onto the stage, and the four Stones jammed with Muddy and his band which also featured Buddy Guy and Junior Wells; to the delight of Muddy’s lucky patrons..☟
