"Honky Tonk Women"

According to YouTuber miraworld, this Top of the Pops performance by The Rolling Stones (doing "Honky Tonk Women") came only a few hours after they were told Brian Jones was found dead in his pool. Business is business, even the business of rock and roll. No one was as ruthless as Mick Jagger. And I guess Brian just got gradually worse and worse. They probably weren't suprised. Still, it was Brian's band...

This is one of those great, late-60s Stones tunes that reminds me why they were "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World." It has the great rolling rhythm their stuff began to have when Brian was replaced by Mick Taylor.
