The Sound Of Rock And Roll Before They Knew What That Was


The Rolling Stones hit number on in the US on this date 7/10 in 1965.  Keith Richards wrote the three note open with the idea of replacing with horns.

  He recorded his guitar with a “Fuzz Tone” effects box to show what the sound should be…. with horns.  Richards was upset to hear the final recording still has his guitar.  WHY?  Well the fuzz tone box was supposed to make the guitar sound like a horn.  And where did he get that idea?  The answer was that’s how guitar pedals we marketed and not how rock and roll would sound in another year.  JHS pedal recently found a demo record and posted it on line.
