The Rolling Stones and Bakersfield

It’s a source of local favorite trivia: The Rolling Stones mention Bakersfield in the song “Far Away Eyes.”

Black Dog found a great video of the Stones performing the song on YouTube.

The Stones are often held up by rock critics as an example of English bands adopting American blues, but what often gets overlooked is how important country music is to them. What’s more is, when the Stones go country, they do it very, very well.
