Rolling Stones Cover Dylan By Fan Request In Spain

Last night The Rolling Stones’ 14 On Fire World Tour continued at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, Spain, where the band dusted off a long-lost Bob Dylan cover for the first time in over a decade.

At each show of the tour, The Rolling Stones have played a song requested by fans that has been determined by voting on social networks and beyond. A cover of Bob Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone” won out last night and the version the Stones delivered was their first take on the song since way back on September 29, 2003. The Stones’ “Like A Rolling Stone” was propelled by Chuck Leavell’s organ work and Keith Richards’ sharp rhythm guitar stylings. We don’t have as nice things to say about Mick Jagger’s harmonica solo.

First debuted in 1995, The Rolling Stones have performed “Like A Rolling Stone” 159 times including one performance with Bob Dylan himself. The Stones played “Like A Rolling Stone” just one day after Dylan’s hand-written draft of the lyrics scored more than $2 million at auction.
