The Stones’ fealty was perhaps never more evident than on November 22, 1981. While in town for a three-night stand at the Rosemont Horizon (now Allstate Arena), Jagger, Richards and Ronnie Wood sat in for a secret, guest-list-only set with Muddy Waters, the man who recorded Rollin’ Stone in 1950. Waters also called up Buddy Guy, Lefty Dizz and Junior Wells to the stage of the old Checkerboard Lounge on 43rd Street. The club closed in 2003, and relocated in ’05 to 5201 South Harper Court.

Key Track: "Something Happened to Me Yesterday," an old-time music-hall ditty about an acid trip. Best Mick Moment: The slobbering lust of "My Obsession. The Stones banged this out, raiding the vaults to turn outtakes and rejects into gold. Key Track: "Waiting on a Friend," with a sax solo by jazz legend Sonny Rollins. Their great R&B album – by now the Stones could write their own classics as well as pick them. Mick struts through the grooves with a sullen edge of seduction, his voice dripping with sex, while Keith and Brian keep hitting new twin-guitar highs. Key Track: "Satisfaction" – if they quit the day after they cut this, they'd still be legends.
