“Welcome to Texas lads”
Texas is one of the great places for Rock and Roll. But it hasn’t always been that way.
On June 7, 1964, The Rolling Stones played a ‘teen fair’ in San Antonio, TX. The warm up act, or probably in this case just an act that was on before them, was a troupe of dancing monkeys. (not Micky Dolenz type monkeys)
Keep in mind, this was one of the first shows in Texas by a band that was part of the British Invasion. The audience wasn’t ready for “that” kind of music.
The Stones were booed off stage.
The dancing monkeys came back on.
The picture is of the Stones, on stage in San Antonio, both post and pre monkeys….
Things have changed in 54 years!!
