    Think this is about waiting for a woman? Think again. Mick Jagger said in 1983: "Just let me be cynical for a moment. First of all, it's really NOT about waiting on a woman friend. It's just about a FRIEND; it doesn't matter if it's a man or a woman. I can see people saying, Oh, we're all much older now, Mick's writing this much more compassionate stuff, must be about a real person. But that's only in their perception of it." -- There are no musician credits on "Tattoo You," but it's clear that Mick Taylor contributed on guitar, which he was not compensated for. Taylor left The Stones in 1974. -- The Stones hired jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins to play on the "Tattoo You" album. He played on this as well as the tracks "Neighbours" and "Slave." This also features Nicky Hopkins on piano, Jimmy Miller on percussion and Kasper Winding on tambourine.

    Just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me on Tuesday. It's been a crazy week and today is helping more. Music does heal and I feel like we all have some healing to do, no matter what the other people think they see of us on the outside. For what it's worth, I'm no longer hearing Paint It Black constantly. I've moved to Waiting On A Friend. For the record, I'm not a Stones fan at all. Weird what gets in your head sometimes. Thanks and stay safe! Russ === Mick Jagger said in 1983: "Just let me be cynical for a moment. First of all, it's really NOT about waiting on a woman friend.

    Larry! Always appreciate tuning in, and the vibe you create. Even when I can't listen, I take comfort knowing you're blessing the airwaves with something righteous. I know it's late, but if you've got something that sounds like Sonny Rollins on his solo on Waiting for a friend, that would be awesome. I love that sound, and I've been trying to find more that sounds like it. Take care, and thank you

    Hi John and Morgan! I'm at work and while in the restroom earlier I popped on the radio to hear how the drive was going and HAD to become an amplifier to get that tote so took an extra long bathroom break to donate! Now I'm on my 15 min lunch and LOVE the energy you both have! I needed this noontime pick me up! Thanks for making me smile and giving me the energy to carry on in good spirits with the rest of my workday I. Am. Healed! Keep on rockin! Cheers! --Chelsea --- BFF's Mick Jagger and Keith Richards go for a walk, run into Ronnie Wood at a bar, drink, and then (naturally) start singing together ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKLVmBOOqVU -- Psst, that's Sonny Rollins playing sax on this song.
