Mick's Hair

In 1963, David Bowie saw the Rolling Stones open for Little Richard at the Brixton Odeon:

"The Stones were so funny," Bowie recalled. "They had, like, four fans at that time who rushed down the aisles to the front. These four chicks in the front there.. It was so funny..

"Keith Richards was dynamite, because he did that aeroplane stuff in those days, whizzing round and round -- he really made an entrance. And Brian Jones was kind of dominant in the band then, he really was.

"And some bloke -- I'll never forget this -- some bloke in the audience looked at Mick Jagger and said, 'Get your hair cut!' And Mick said, 'What, and look like you?' It was so funny! We just collapsed in our seats!"
