Flashback: Rolling Stones First Ed Sullivan Appearance

Where were you 48 years ago tonight (October 25, 1964)? Me, I was probably filling a diaper or making a mess of some pureed carrots, but knowing my mother, I was at least in the room as the Rolling Stones made their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show.

While the Beatles had made their debut some months before and performed five songs, the Stones were already on their second U.S. tour of the year and played two songs in under seven minutes: their current hit Time Is On My Side and a cover of Chuck Berry’s Around and Around.

  • Newly released is the DVD set, All 6 Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Rolling Stones. The set includes all the band’s appearances, marking the first time the band’s 1969 guest spot has appeared on DVD.
  • The Stones played live on the Sullivan Show between 1964 and 1969 — with the band’s 1966, 1967, and 1969′s performances featuring live vocals over pre-recorded backing tracks.
