James Brown “opening” for the Rolling Stones, 1964

August 2nd, 2014

This is the James Brown performance at the T.A.M.I. awards in 1964. A lot of big groups performed. They decided to close the show with this new group from England, “The Rolling Stones”. James is not one to “open” for anybody. While James is doing this show (which brought the house down), Mick and Keith watched from back stage. “Worst career move we ever made” was Keith’s comment.

Can you imagine having to follow James Brown on stage?
