Black Limousine by The Rolling Stones

Album: Tattoo YouReleased: 1981
  • This is based on a song by Blues musician Jimmy Reed called "You Don't Have To Go." The song is about The Stones' rock and roll lifestyle of women, alcohol, and limousines.
  • This was first recorded at the Some Girls sessions in 1978.
  • Ron Wood got a writing credit for this. It is one of the few Stones originals not credited only to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
  • According to Wood, the guitar riff was influenced by a Texas slide Blues guitarist named Hop Wilson, who recorded in the '60s. >>
