ROLLING STONES LYRICS
JUMPIN' JACK FLASH
Recorded during the Beggars Banquet sessions in 1968, but kept off the album and released as a single on May 24, 1968.. Main guitar riff through up by Bill Wyman, but he wasn't credited.
In 1968 a promotional film which the modern music videos evolved from was shot for this song with The Stones performing wearing body paint and heavy makeup on their faces, and far-out costumes. Soon the rock band Alice Cooper copied this and the look became a rock trend and the start of Glitter Rock. It also led to the look that the band KISS would adopt.
Lead Vocals: Mick Jagger Acoustic Guitars and Bass: Keith Richards Electric Guitars: Brian Jones Drums: Charlie Watts Maracas: Jimmy Miller Organ: Bill Wyman Mellotron(?): Brian Jones Background Vocals: Mick Jagger & Keith Richards
JUMPING JACK FLASH
I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag,
I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
