You gotta start somewhere! And they did. On this day in 1962 The Rolling Stones performed their first ever concert, at a small jazz and skiffe* club called the "Marquee" in London. Did they think that they would still be around today? Did they think that they'd make a profound and lasting mark on music? Who knows. If you sometimes feel that you cannot get any satisfaction, try to pick the good moments of any given day. They're there. Like the little boy sifting through horse manure to find the pony. (*jazz, blues, folk, and country influenced music) I found satisfaction in calming my esophageally impaired housemate and he is now able to sleep. Sometimes the little things are the big things. Shine on but never at another's expense.
