This Will Make You Feel Old(er)

Can you believe it was 54 years ago (October 25th, 1964) that the Rolling Stones made their debut on The Ed Sullivan Show? I’ll have to check and see if I was even born yet!!  The Stones’ debut was nothing like the Beatles’ celebrated first appearance the previous February, when they performed five songs. The Stones, who were already on their second U.S. tour of the year, performed two songs in less than seven minutes — what was their latest hit “Time Is On My Side,” and they also did a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Around And Around.”

This wasn’t the Stones’ first U.S. TV performance. They had performed on Dean Martin’s Hollywood Palace (really??) and The Mike Douglas Show (WHAT!?!?!?!) during their first swing through the States the previous June. But it was during the Stones’ 1964 Ed Sullivan Show performance that the majority of America got their first glimpse of the band which turned out all these years to be one of my favorites!!  NOW…not only do you know the rest of the story BUT you (like me) probably feel a little older!!!  ROCK ON!
