An Unlikely Tribute to Bob Wills

Born on this day in 1905 was Bob Wills, the 'King of Western Swing'. Here are the Rolling Stones, of all people, paying tribute, in front of an enthusiastic Texan audience. Mick's voice is a long way from Western Swing, or even Country (there weren't many honkytonks in Dartford), but he delivers in his way, and Ronnie does a surprisingly good job on the pedal steel. Enjoy...

  1. He certainly doesn't sound as Texan as Waylon Jennings, but I don't recall Jennings's accompaniment being as good.
