Michigan Avenue - Boom.Boom.Boom.

You can watch the poorly paid CEO's of the the oilco's being grilled by Congress or PMQ's in the House of Commons.....or 4 minutes of fun from Chicago ... takes 4 minutes and lights up after 53 seconds ... the hoody nearest the camera is Barrack Obama.

From just outside the Wrigley Building on Michigan .. just down from Chess (2120 Michigan) where the Stones first recorded with legendary Ron Malo during their 1st US tour .. 10th and 11th June 1964. 1st US recording, 1st in stereo !.. and produced their first UK No 1 – ‘It’s All Over Now’.

Their thieving but gifted manager , Andrew Loog Oldham on June 11th held a press conference with the Stones on the traffic island in the middle of Michigan Avenue, holding up the traffic and the fuzz swooped. Chicago Daily News dutifully ran a story : ‘Those Rolling Stones Gather The Wrath Of A Cop’, and the Chicago Tribune with: ‘Barber Gives Scare To Five Fuzzy Singers’.

They made 2 more visits to Chess , on their 2nd US tour in the fall of 1964 and Spring 1965 recording early takes of ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’, with a massively stoned Brian Jones playing (?) harmonica.

It was called Chess by the two Polish brothers Leonard and Phil Chess who bought the place in 1957 who set up the Chess label.

Amazing. All that happened before "You Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows." was published by the group that became te Weathermen. Signed by (amongst 9 others Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers (Now Mr & Mrs Ayers) , who after a spell of mayhem , murder and chokey are now best friends with the Obama's.
