This is great, thanks!
The whole "mods vs rockers" thing in England is one that I don't know much about but would like to research more.
Assuming the Stones, while here playing the "mod ball" attracted the "rockers" because of the music, or did the rockers/bikers show up just to mess with the mods?
They were two rival communities; happenings, you could say. The rockers enjoyed their rock ‘n roll, leather jackets and motorcycles, whilst the mods - short for ‘modernists’ - favoured Italian fashion, scooters, Northern Soul and Motown. The Mods were the future; the rockers, the past. With that I’m mind, I’ve always felt the mod revivalist movement to be daft.
