Mick Jagger announced recently that he had to cancel the Rolling Stones tour of Canada and the U.S. due to mysterious health reasons – He had to have a heart valve replaced. Here is a Stones instrumental recorded in 1964 at the legendary Chess Studios, located at 2010 South Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The Stones took a two-day break from their first U.S. tour, which wasn’t going well — they had been booed off the stage when they played a teen fair in Texas a few days earlier. The Stones didn’t yet have a hit in the U.S. and took a break to record 15 songs at Chess, releasing a five-song EP, 5 x 5, in England on Aug. 14, 1964. They recorded Satisfaction during the Chess sessions, and later added a fuzz-tone guitar. This instrumental, clocking in a 2:02 minutes, was included on the Stones first North American LP, 12 x 5. Keith Richards wrote in his biography that when the Stones first entered the Chess studio, they were surprised to find Muddy Waters painting the ceiling. Muddy also helped the Stones bring their amps in the studio. The song was built around Bill Wyman’s bass riff. And that’s Mick on harmonica @ 1:09.

Here is the longer 3:38-minute version:

I first saw the Stones in 1965 in Vancouver – at the Agrodome, with Little Stevie Wonder, then 14 years old, opening.

An odd remix mashup of the same song with The Clash:

As you can probably tell, I’m fascinated by remixes. Here’s 4 producers flipping a 12-second sample of jazz improvisation of Chopin’s Nocturne in E-flat, played on the piano. The challenge: they had 24 hours to produce a song.

Today’s music video is Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer, filmed in Tokyo:

And here’s a love-and-peace anthem from 50 years ago, Let’s Get Together, performed by Joni Mitchell with Crosby, Stills & Nash; it was a 1967 hit by the Youngbloods:

Steven Stills auditioned for The Monkees, but wasn’t successful, Instead he went on to form Buffalo Springfield and Crosby Stills Nash & Young.

Sorry, no English subtitles yet for this video featuring Brays Efe, a Spanish actor known for his role in the Netflix comedy series Paquita Salas, and Inés de León, a Spanish director, scriptwriter, actress and publicist. They are in a car on their way to the Desigual Spring 2019 fashion show in Madrid. They are discussing what is authentic today: Is there too much posing? Have Instagram filters clouded our view? Inés de León (@inesdeleon) and Brays Efe (@braysefe) tell it like it is. They are both wearing Desigual Spring 2019.

Beyoncé posted this photo on Instagram this week. She’s standing in front of a painting by my good friend Gary Lang, a California painter. Gary and I attended art school together in the 1960s at Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, which became CalArts. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Today’s music video is Beyoncé and Jay Z, shot in the Louvre:

Elton John, now 71, will be playing three concerts in Vancouver in September in what is being billed as his Final Tour (Bill Wyman calls it the “final Farewell-Good-bye-I’m-Retiring-I-Really-Mean-It Tour.” Here was John’s first hit from 1970:

John is married to Canadian David Furnish – they met in London in 2005 when Furnish was working at an ad agency. They entered into a civil partnership in 2005 and in 2014, when England legalized same-sex marriage, they officially wed and now have two sons. In 2005, one of John’s early mentors and former roommates, legendary British blues rocker Long John Baldry died in Vancouver, where he had lived for 25 years. Elton, who was Reginald Dwight when he  played keyboards with Baldry’s band Bluesology in the 1960s, credited Baldry for convincing John (they were both gay), at the last minute, not to marry a woman in the 1970s. John wrote this song about how Baldry saved him that night:

This movie did a beautiful integration of an Elton John song:

  Almost Famous was written by Cameron Crowe. It’s an autobiographical account of his early years, being a 15-year-old music critic writing for Rolling Stone magazine and touring in 1973 with bands such as the Allman Brothers – called Stillwater in the movie. The movie clip ends with his college-professor mother Elaine, played by Frances McDormand, telling her class: “Rock stars have kidnapped my son.” Crowe’s mentor in the movie is music critic Lester Bangs, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. They have a phone conversation about how uncool they are – “not like good-looking people,” Bangs explains.

Elton & Long John Baldry, Let’s Burn Down the Cornfield:

I recently answered the phone, and this song was playing:
