Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones

Photography by Baron Wolman

This was taken in November 1969, the first time I photographed the Rolling Stones. It was also the band’s first U.S. tour since July 1966, a hiatus due to drug charges and the complications therefrom. Although rock critic Robert Christgau called it “history’s first mythic rock and roll tour,” it ended darkly in December with the Altamont free concert. I’ve always liked how Keith Richards appears in the lower left of this shot, with Mick Jagger in center stage, a role that seemed often to be repeated. It was also on this tour that Sam Cutler, the tour’s road manager, began introducing the Stones as “the greatest rock and roll band in the world.” And I guess it could be argued they pretty much still are…
