Today In Music – 1968

June 19, 1968

The Rolling Stones scored their seventh UK No.1 single when ‘Jumpin Jack Flash’ hit the top of the charts. Keith Richards has stated that he and Jagger wrote the lyrics while staying at Richards’ country house, where they were awoken one morning by the sound of gardener Jack Dyer walking past the window. When Jagger asked what the noise was, Richards responded: “Oh, that’s Jack – that’s jumpin’ Jack.”

In honor of this, here is a picture of The Rolling Stones from 1968
