While Brian Smith’s book Boom Boom Boom Boom : American Rhythm & Blues In England 1962 – 1966 does major on the black Blues musicians who came before Brian’s lens, he was also interested in the British bands who were influenced by them. Fewer wore those influences more heavily than The Rolling Stones, who Brian saw a few times. A number of photographs appear in the book, but this particular shot is a nice way to remember drummer Charlie Watts and mark his huge contribution to British popular music. Duane Eddy was appearing in Manchester and The Stones were playing a small club in Cheshire. Keen to meet Duane they drove over to see his set before rushing back to the club. Someone asked Brian if he would take them a souvenir “selfie” and he managed to grab this rare shot backstage. A restored version will feature in the book.
