ROLLING STONES WELCOME OLD FRIEND
FOR DEBUT COVER IN CHICAGO
The Rolling Stones' continue to fill their 50 and Counting Tour with
guest spots from the likes of John Mayer, Gwen Stefani, Dave Grohl, Carrie Underwood and
Tom Waits. Last night's special guest at the United Center in Chicago was old friend Taj
Mahal, whose relationship with the band dates back to his appearance on their Rock And
Roll Circus concert film in 1968. Taj has since sat in with the band a few times,
including for a riveting performance of "Corrina" in 1997.
Taj Mahal emerged eight songs into The Rolling Stones' set for a debut cover of Dave
Dudley's "Six Days On The Road." The Stones also worked "Rocks Off" into their set for
