American ’60s R&B/soul/funk superstar (and beyond), it’s a fact the Godfather of Soul influenced Mick’s stage movements. Brown preceded the Stones in the taping of the T.A.M.I. Show in 1964. Although he was the toughest of acts to follow, the Stones were extremely pleased with their performance. Later on, in 1981, Brown was scheduled to open the New York shows for the Stones but then it didn’t happen. A James Brown fan for decades, in 2014 Mick Jagger produced Brown’s biopic Get On Up.
