Walking The Dog by The Rolling Stones
shit vid and audio - perfect mess; they were great tho
this one a super cool very early live tv Carol; Chuck Berry way of
Rlling Stones. It might have been the first time I ever heard this song.
most of us
are fmailiar with this Mike Douglas TV clip.
i had the personal gift of being around 12 or so
at this time; and perfect age to look at these rough raw beautiful
senuous dirty boys trying to be nice with mike; who was a super nice
guy and gracious host to everybody; a real decent soul; uber 'sqauare'
due to the cultural realities of the day; eisenhower years into kennedy then president kennedy was publically killed; it was a tense, well, 'aftermath' culurally, that went into hysteria and some social scientiest say some
sort of indirectly related massive manic release; but that's heavy;
and as a kid this was beautiful; filled with light; not a thing disturbing
about it for me or parents; it was just rough; it was more than their look;
tho their look was very much more casual stripped down than the standard
tailored stuff all the dam beetles and a new uk invasion pop band every single week for a longgass time; they knew where the Big money was...where the disosable income was; also fans, tv was new; ten years before 65 is an unmaginable world to those not really either familiar with it; or very connected to people who are.
sorry to go on; i'll stop; good cut; as a 12 year old watcing this i was fascinated; i felt a sense of loss as soon as they were gone from the appearance. theu were adults on TV to me; i was so young; ten years younger i guess...but i felt a kinship with them; somehow. can't explain.
they stood out....here they are just standing around and mike knows nothing
but is sweet; they are all on good behavior and really just going it with it; but not putting on an act at all; not press savvy, of caring tp protect from particular scrutiny; mroe innocent but a definite Pack; it's own charm.
sorry to go on and on,.
