I heard an interesting bit of trivia on my way into work this morning. Apparently, on this day in music history, Keith Richards penned the Rolling Stones smash hit Satisfaction. The DJ said Richards was noodling around on his guitar, just trying out some riffs, when he fell asleep (passed out may be more accurate?) Upon waking, he recalled writing something good but could not reproduce the tune he had started before nodding off – however, he’d had the presence of mind to have a tape recorder running while he played. How serendipitous! 🙂
What’s your favorite Rolling Stones tune?
