Muddy Waters and The Rolling Stones – Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago, IL – 11/22/1981

The pioneer of Chicago blues teams up with the poster children of the British Invasion to play one of the most soulful blues shows of the 1980’s for a small crowd of 200 at Buddy Guy’s renowned Checkerboard Lounge.  Muddy Waters (just a year before his death, RIP) meets Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, and the Rolling ‘Mother Fucking’ Stones on the heels of the bands’ 20th anniversary. How much more stellar could you possibly get???
