For a good decade, Jagger was a leading counter-cultural icon and thorn in society’s side. His fellow-conspirator Richards was first met at primary school — their creative partnership was crucial to the Rolling Stones’ success. Waters, Berry and Dixon — strong influences all — came to see them in Chicago; Spector, another significant connection, was also met on their first US trip. Southern and Capote (who wore ear-plugs all the time) both tagged along on tour. Jagger extolled Diddley’s generosity of spirit, and was responsible for Wolf’s only TV appearance. Godard made a famously incoherent film featuring the Stones.
