    i assume this has been posted here before, but I have never seen it, so I thought I'd share it. As a Stones fan since my childhood in the '60s, it is great to see these two still having fun with what they do. They won't be around someday ... we'll at least Mick;), so these moments should be cherished.

    Love it! Thank you!

    I keep seeing/hearing Keith playing these (mostly acoustic) dream guitars like he doesn't care/doesn't know how. It's simultaneously liberating and frustrating. Buzzing and banging the hell out of that Martin, fretting badly, like a teenager who just learned five chords from his teacher.

    But what a badass.

    The way Mick's slurring some of the words makes it sound like he doesn't remember them correctly......like most bar bands who cover Honky Tonk Women.
    This is cool! ;)

    Looks like one of those old Martins where the neck joins the body at the 12th fret.

    Thanks for posting!

    Perfection is the enemy of good (or something like that)

    I love how they can bash this stuff out and we all worry about intonated saddles, pickup height etc. :)

    This song is called " Country Honk"
    and the lyrics are different. It is an album cut.

    " Honky Tonk Women" was released later, and was the single, not on the album.

    On Let It Bleed, we put that other version of Honky Tonk Women on because that's how the song was originally written, as a real Hank Williams/Jimmie Rodgers, '30s country song. And it got turned around to this other song by Mick Taylor, who got into a completely different feel, throwing it off the wall completely.

    - Keith Richards


    It's the other way around, actually.
    Honky Tonk Women single was released on the 4th of July 1969
    Let Bleed Album with Country Honk on it, was released December 5th,1969. a day before the Altamont desaster.

    they were working on both versions at the same studio session at Olympic Sound Studios, London.
    only County Honk was finnished with overdubs mid to end of October at Sunset Sound and Electra Studios, LA
    featuring Byron Berline on fiddle, Nanette Workman on backing vocals and Sam Cutler on car horn.

    Yeah, I got the timeline wrong,
    plus I did not mention which album, as I knew it was either Beggars Banquet or Let It Bleed ( ' the Rubber Soul/Revolver' of the Stones- sort of...) but couldn't remember which.

    But my point was that there were 2 songs, or 2 treatments of the same song


    Side old man rant:
    Funny how many folks have never heard " Country Honk"
    ( and sadly today's Classic Rock stations have Song Playlists of it feels like 100 songs! Maybe just 3:
    " Dream On", " Dont Stop Believin'" and " Hit Me With Your Best Shot"- there was a time you would have these entire albums played on a Saturday night)
