51 years ago, the Rolling Stones released their self-titled debut album, a key moment in their career - and a seminal event in the development of Australian rock'n'roll. Over the next three episodes, I’ll be talking to three Aussie rock legends whose careers were shaped by this album - Mike Rudd, Joe Camilleri and Russell Morris.
This week, Mike Rudd - frontman of legendary Melbourne band Spectrum - joins me to chat about how hearing this album turned him into a future blues-rock luminary. We talk about the dynamic within the Stones, their skill as arrangers, why Mike prefers their versions of classic RnB songs to the originals and Mike weighs in on the old Beatles vs. Stones debate.
Check back next week and the week after to hear more about this classic record.
