50 years ago this month, the fabled T.A.M.I. show produced conflict when James Brown objected to the Stones closing the show. Mick has been interviewed this month around his new James Brown doc--airing tonite on HBO--that he's co-produced and he claims he smoothed things over with King James before the show. Hut! Good God! Here's Brown's set and then the Stones (including of the greatest rock n roll songs ever, Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now"). The recent Brown bio-pic from Hollywood had him coming off stage and saying to the Stones, "Welcome to America, boys." Mick denies he said that. And he claims that the Stones didn't follow James for hours--and with a different audience!
