Mike Koshitani, Doctor of the rolling stones, shares fun memories of Stones and Keith Richards.
Mr. Nakatani, my music mentor, set up a fun club of Roy Orbison in 1964. His records were released by King Records (London Records) at that time.
As I was collaborating with the person in charge of the record company for the fun club operation, Nakatani-san took me to King Records from time to time.
It was during spring break, just before I entered the second grade of junior high school.
One day, Mr. Takeda, the director of the record label, took me into the listening room and said,
"I'm thinking to introduce this group to the Japanese market as a rival to the Beatles."
That was "Not Fade Away" by the Rolling Stones. I was instantly mesmerized by Mick Jagger's voice, blown away by his vocals.
