Rock and Roll Circus - Rolling Stones: What happened?

Rock and Roll Circus dei Rolling Stones

Recorded before a live audience in London in 1968, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was originally conceived as a BBC-TV special.

Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, it centers on the original line-up of the Rolling Stones – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman (with Nicky Hopkins and Rocky Dijon) – with Jagger serving as both the host of the show and a featured attraction with his band. For the first time in front of an audience, "The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band" performs six Stones classics.

The program also included extraordinary performances by The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Yoko Ono and The Dirty Mac, a "supergroup", before the term was even coined!

The band consisted of Eric Clapton (lead guitar), Keith Richards (bass), Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience (drums) and John Lennon on guitar and vocals.

Let's see them at "work"...
