This is not the very best, acoustically, but I thought it apropos on the occasion of the end of Jay Leno's stewardship of The Tonight Show.
Here's another version, with crisper video and sound, featuring a playful Stevie, and Mick changing up the beat a bit near the end.
I have long said that Lindsey doesn't get the respect he deserves as a guitarist. It's also been announced that the classic Chain gang line up of this legendary band will reunite in the studio this year for a new album, and supposedly Christine will even participate in a subsequent tour.
As you know, my producers require, contractually, that I make sufficient reference to dead musicians on these blog pages. You also remember, of course, that Lindsey Buckingham learned to play guitar by listening to Kingston Trio¹ LPs.
The Trio performed and recorded "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine" - both songs of Pete Seeger's².
There, Mission Accomplished!
¹ Two original members (Guard, Reynolds) and one replacement (Stewart) dead.
² Dead this week at age 94.
