With The Rolling Stones playing the Glastonbury festival this weekend, I thought I would post the song which is one of their most recongisable, “Satisfaction”. The Rolling Stones were seen as the main rivals to The Beatles during the 1960s. What a lot of people don’t realise is that Lennon and McCartney provided The Stones with their second single release, “I wanna be your man”.
“Satisfaction” was released in May 1965, and went to number one in many countries including the DUK, the USA, Germany and Australia. The guitar lick which drives the song is very typical of the incredibly catchy guitar licks which are so characteristic of the Stones’ music, Keith Richards has been able to create such mesmerising licks over and over again.
