Top Of The Pops Thursday: The Rolling Stones – Paint It Black


The Rolling Stones – I can take them or leave them. Mostly leave.

Their heyday was before my time and while there’s no questioning the importance of their place in the history of popular music, they’ve never really held any great appeal for me. Of the great survivors from that era, give me The Who any day.
