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

John Lydon Likes Mick Jagger!!

It took a long long time for this story to come out but John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, says that Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger helped out Sid Vicious when everybody else turned their backs. When Sid was accused of murdering his girlfriend Nancy Spungen in 1979, it was Mick Jagger who paid for the legal fees. John says:

“For that, I have a good liking of Mick Jagger. There was activity behind the scenes from Mick so I applaud him. He never used it to advance himself publicity-wise.”

Unfortunately Sid died from an overdose so the case never went to court.

Rolling Stones on On Banknote!

Ok this is completely crazy. The Bank of England are looking at choosing a celebrity to appear on the 10 (pound) banknote. Their list, chosen by the public, will replace Charles Darwin who is currently on the Series E token. The list is short and has none other than Mick Jagger at the top along with the Beatles, Churchill, David Beckham and others.

No word on a decision yet.
