The Doors wouldn’t do it. Buddy Holly and Bo Diddley wouldn’t do it. But The Rolling Stones did….

The Rolling Stones were the musical guest on the Ed Sullivan Show on Jan. 15, 1967. The Stones were set to play their big hit “Let’s Spend the Night Together” on the show.

But, as he was known to do, Sullivan made them change the title and lyrics to “Let’s Spend Some Time Together.” Unlike others before, the band does as it’s told. Mick Jagger mocks the censorship by making faces at the camera while he sings the cleaned-up line.

This is the only video we could find (doesn’t mean it’s not out there) of the performance with Mick changing the words. It is at about 1:16 in on this video.

Do any of you remember seeing this when it happened, 51 years ago today?
