Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones: Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981 DVD/LP Review
Seeing the late, great Muddy Waters in person was always a treat for fans. Seeing him live at Buddy Guy’s Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago was even better. An intimate venue, it served as the perfect environment for Waters’ songs. In November 1981, fans not only got to see Waters in this setting, some very special guests also joined him. Seems The Rolling Stones were in town in support of their album, Tattoo You and Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and pianist Ian Stewart decided to take in the show. It didn’t take much persuading from their hero to join him on stage, making a memorable evening even better. Fortunately, the cameras were rolling and the results make up the new DVD/LP set, Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones: Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981.
