I've never read that before Keno i.e. that 'I Wanna Be Your Man' was finished at the Stones 'pad'. If it was then it would have to be the one and only time (that I'm aware of anyway) that the Beatles visited the Stones 'pad' in '63. That would have been the night of the 14th of April '63, following the Stones gig at Gomelsky's club in Richmond when the Beatles turned up (wearing leather coats?), and afterwards went back with the Stones to Edith Grove. I've never read anywhere that 'I Wanna Be Your Man' was finished (or even started, or even thought of) that night.
Like I say I've read a few slightly differing accounts of how the meeting between Lennon and McCartney and the Stones, the one that ended in the Stones getting the song, came about. What doesn't seem to be disputed is where they all ended up and where the song was finished off i.e. Studio 51 just off Charing Cross Road in Soho.
Studio 51 club was of course Ken Colyer's jazz club where the Stones had done some gigs. Probably the most accurate accounts of events are to be found in Wyman's 'Rolling With the Stones', and ALO's 'Stoned', both of their recollections more or less coincide. In short, the Stones were rehearsing in the club, and trying to come up with a suitable follow up to 'Come On'.
Things were not going well, and Oldham stepped out for a break/breath of fresh air, and bumped into Lennon and McCartney. Oldham explained the situation, and the fab two followed Oldham back to the club, and finished off the song they considered might suit the Stones as their next release. The date was 10th September '63, and the fab two were making their way back from (to who knows where) a luncheon given by the Variety Club of Great Britain where they had received some sort of award from the then Prime Minister, Harold Wilson.
