Assorted Connections

I saw Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones being interviewed on TV the other night, and he was even coherent. The interviewer guy asked him for his favorite lesser-known Rolling Stones song, and he replied "The Connection." Good pick, and he got the name almost right...like the old joke about putting your name on a test: "I got 75% on that."

Live, 11/11/06

"Connection" as played by Peter Stampfel and the Ether Frolic Mob (in socks)
(Reminds me of the time I saw Stampfel and Weber play "From Home" by The Troggs...)

"Connection" by Can, 1969

Jackie McLean, "O.D." from the movie "The Connection" (1961, the upside-down year)
Jackie McLean on sax, Freddie Redd piano, Larry Richie drums and Michael Mattos on bass.

Look, it's Das Room!
The shot at about 1:10+ of "Beatnik Overdose" reminds me of (Keith's) room on W. Oak St. in Kent, Ohio, often shared by a few Ragged Bags and many transient friends.
