The 2016 March 29th issue of world renown music magazine MOJO is flying out, probably due to its coverage of the Rolling Stones, who have just played a historic gig in Cuba, made possible after the thawing of relationships between the USA and its old enemy.
Cuba had a ban on foreign music for many years, so the Rolling Stones made a perfect pick to break the ice. The Stones actually played the gig for free – and I’m sure made many new fans in the process.
The Mojo issue is zeroing in on The Rolling Stones stellar 1966 before zooming forward for an exclusive glimpse of their career-spanning Exhibitionism show (your guide: Mick Jagger!).
The FREE covermount CD, entitled “Paint It Black” features 15 tracks that illustrate mid-’60s rock’s turn to the weird, from The Yardbirds, The Seeds, 13th Floor Elevators, The Rationals and more.
