BBC Four showing Muddy Waters & The Stones….

On 22nd November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 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 Muddy Waters perform.

It didn’t take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later accompanied by Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, the great Lefty Dizz and Mojo Burford.

This unique occasion was captured on camera and has now been restored from the original footage and is available on DVD.

But tonight (24th November), at 11.30pm BBC Four will show the whole gig.
