Prophet's honour


Mick Jagger pleaded in vain for the audi- ence to leap into the aisles. What a contrast with his riotous concert in California . . a Perhaps a pop idol is not without hysteria save in his own country. (Daily Mail)

For still the fans in screaming miles Lay themselves out along the aisles In far-off California.

But Rolling Stones Can break no bones.

In England. They were born 'ere.
