12 Juli 1962 die Rolling Stones gaben ihr Debüt Live Konzert im Marquee Club London

  • 57 YEARS AGO TODAY!

    July 12, 1962 - The Rolling Stones made their live debut, billed as The Rollin' Stones, at the Marquee Club in London.

    During the late spring and early summer of 1962, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards would catch the train from Dartford to London, where they nurtured dreams of forming a blues band.

    They always visited the Marquee Club on Oxford Street where Mick, on a few occasions, sat in to sing a few blues songs with Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated. Playing drums with Alexis was one Charlie Watts.

    Brian Jones, Ian Stewart, Mick and Keith along with whoever else they could find to play some Rhythm & Blues were soon rehearsing a set of favourites at The Bricklayers Arms Pub in Soho’s Broadwick Street, just a stone’s throw away from Oxford Street.

    Their luck changed when The Blues Incorporated were offered a slot on BBC Radio’s Jazz Club programme on 12th July 1962, so the Marquee’s owner, Harold Pendleton booked this new four piece band to deputize for Korner’s group on this historic night.

    Needing a name, quickly, so the club could advertise their appearance they came up with The Rollin’ Stones, lifted from a song by their hero Muddy Waters. Jazz News carried the band’s line up:

    Mick Jagger (vocals harmonica), Keith Richards (guitars) Elmo Lewis, real name Brian Jones (guitars), Dick Taylor (bass), Ian Stewart (piano), & Mick Avory (drums).

    Brian Jones was calling himself Elmo Lewis, Elmo, after his hero Elmore James, and Lewis being his first name: Lewis Brian Hopkin Jones.

    According to the band’s handwritten set list for that first gig (penned by Ian Stewart in his appointment diary) they played songs by their heroes Jimmy Reed, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry.

    The rest is history.

    THE SET LIST

    Kansas City – Wilbert Harrison

    Honey What’s Wrong – Billy Fury

    Confessin’ The Blues – Chuck Berry

    Ride ‘Em On Down – Robert Johnson

  • Keinesfalls von Robert Johnson, auch sonst stimmt im Text einiges nicht.

    Ride Em On Down wird selbst von den Stones (im Album Blue & Lonesome) mit Eddie Taylor als Author angegeben (stimmt schon eher als Robert Johnson), der Song ist allerdings aus dem Song "Shake 'Em On Down" entstanden und der wurde von Bukka White schon 1936 geschrieben. ;)

    Noch mehr als die Setlist (die ja von Quelle zu Quelle etwas schwankt und an die sich auch die Stones auch selbst nicht mehr erinnern) ist der Fehler das Mick Avory angeblich am Schlagzeug gesessen hat am 12. Juli 1962 - eigentlich ist mittlerweile gesichert das TONY CHAPMAN der Mann an den Drums im Marquee war beim ersten Gig :!:

    Hoochie Chochie Man wurde meines Wissens nicht gespielt - dafür einige andere Songs die ich Blau markiert habe.

    Achja - meine abgespeicherte Setlist vom ersten Gig sieht so aus, die Autorenangaben sollten stimmen - aber dabei war ich im Marquee LIVE nicht, somit ist das auch nur eine der möglichen Setlistvarianten ;) (Die Unterschiede der Autoren zu der Setlist von Freak hab ich mal fett markiert)
