Keith Richards was seen warming up backstage playing “Midnight Rambler” on his Gibson Korina Flying V.
“Midnight Rambler” is the last song that Brian Jones recorded with the Stones. The band wrote it about a serial murderer, while they were on holiday in a town in Italy. It was then released on their 1969 album, Let It Bleed.
The legendary guitarist shared the video on his official Instagram page on the day of their second show at Hyde Park, London, England. The Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary European tour was launched in Madrid, Spain on June 1.
Their June 21 stop in Milan, Italy was their first show as they return in the trek following the cancellation of their two scheduled dates after Mick Jagger tested positive for COVID-19 just hours before a June 13 concert in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The band also had to reschedule that show and advised fans they had to cancel plans to appear in Bern, Switzerland due to scheduling issues.
Meanwhile, in celebration of their 60th anniversary, a special four-part docuseries, My Life as a Rolling Stone, is now set for a U.S. premiere Aug. 7 on Epix. The show originally debuted by the BBC in March and each episode will focus one of the band’s four core members, Jagger, Richards, Ronnie Wood, and the late Charlie Watts.
