Rolling Stones 1@1…

 Flashinback to 1968 when The Rolling Stones began recording “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”! Bill Wyman wrote the hook, but wasn’t bothered that he didn’t get credit until Keith Richards admitted it in interviews years later.

In fact, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” remains a bit of a sore spot for former Stones bassist Bill Wyman, who says he came up with part of the melody — but received none of the credit and says, “I kind of forgot about it, really, until we actually did it in the studio. And by that time, Mick had written these lyrics, ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas, gas, gas.’ Then when it came out, it said Jagger-Richards, which didn’t kind of bother me at the time, really. I was very disappointed afterwards, after Keith admitted it in [a] Rolling Stone interview and on many television interviews that, ‘Oh yeah, that was Bill’s thing, that was.’ When it was mentioned in my book, and people queried him, he said, ‘He had nothing to do with it.’ He completely reversed his opinions.”

In less than 15 minutes we’re flashinback to 1968 when one of the most popular British bands started recording a song inspired by a gardener  who prompted the guitar player to write the catchy track you’ll hear at 1 today thanks to my friends at ZIA Records only on the valley’s classic rock station 100.7 KSLX!

The Rolling Stones started recording Jumpin’ Jack Flash on this day in 1968. Keith Richards wrote the song about his gardener, Jack. The 1@1.
