Everyone who is a fan of The Rolling Stones knows that the band was built upon a heavy influence of blues music. In fact, just recently the Stones released their first album in 10 years, which ended up being a blues cover album titled Blue and Lonesome. There’s no doubt that blues music is deeply rooted in the Stones’ history, and this performance further proves that!
