I sang Jumpin’ Jack Flash to my dad in Mick Jagger’s courtroom suit

"When Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were arrested for drug possession in 1967 at Richards’ home in West Sussex, my father ended up representing them. I would have been 15 at the time. There was a trial and they were nearly sent to prison. In fact, they were sent to prison for one night [Jagger to Brixton and Richards to Wormwood Scrubs] and my dad got them out on bail. They were found not guilty on appeal, so we held this big party in the London flat to celebrate.

Mick arrived still in his suit – my dad had wanted him to look smart for his appearance in court. When the party was over, Jagger changed back into his day wear – a kaftan, something flowery – to go off to do an interview on Panorama and left the suit he’d worn to court on my bed. So, obviously, I had to put it on and do Jumpin’ Jack Flash for my father. I remember there was £200 in the back pocket. I’d never seen such a huge wedge of money in my life."

A great story, but JJF wasn't recorded until the following year!

He probably meant Have You Seen Your Mother Baby Standing in the Shadow.

Easy mistake.

Agree, lovely story, but we'll never know what song he sang I guess. Maybe just Satisfaction.
