This was The Rolling Stones' first single. It's a remake of a Chuck Berry song. Berry is a big influence on Keith Richards.
The Stones performed this on Thank Your Lucky Stars, a popular English TV show. The show's producer told the Stones manager he should "Get rid of that vile-looking lead singer with the tire-tread lips." They decided to keep Mick Jagger.
This was the first song The Stones recorded professionally. They recorded it on May 10, 1963.
Mick Jagger (1972): "I don't think Come On was very good, in fact it was s--t. God knows how it ever got in the charts, it was such a hype. In fact we disliked it so much we didn't do it on any of our gigs." (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
This Kentucky singer/songwriter's hits include "She Couldn't Change Me" (recorded by Montgomery Gentry) and "It Ain't Easy Being Me."
