Mick Jagger The Rolling Stones

Jagger Live in Italy

1967 : Mick Jagger does as he’s told and sings Let’s Spend The Night Together as “Let’s Spend Some Time Together” when The Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan Show. Jagger rolls his eyes derisively when he sings the altered line.

Just Amazing! The Rolling Stones very own Mick Jagger ceases to amaze us and had events happen all over the world… But in 1967, on this day, he made his political statement while instructed to change the lyrics to his song. Check out the Performance here… Classic!


Have you taken a good hard look at your Acoustic Guitar lately? Notice anything? Well… a guitar needs moisture to keep it sounding its best! A dry guitar would show signs of shrinking, widening or splitting joints, and maybe even, dare we say – cracks in the body of your guitar! Using a Humidifier is a great way to seal your guitar’s wood with moisture, ensuring that cracks and warping doesn’t happen during the dry season.

Acoustic Guitars Need Humidity!

If you are located on the East Coast, then you probably don’t have a problem with your guitar’s wood drying out… but many locations feature a dry climate, even and in some places, especially in the winter season. Taking care of your guitar comes with many responsibilities. Keeping clean and fresh strings, tight keys, a straight neck, updated electronics and healthy wood are all parts of keeping a healthy acoustic guitar.

SoundCheck Music Center offers maintenance and repair for acoustic guitars as well as electric guitars. It’s important to have a Specialized Repair Technician take a look at the condition of your guitar if you are unsure of your guitar’s health. A quick evaluation can tell you if a Humidifier is the right remedy for getting your guitar’s designed tone singing proudly. SoundCheck Music sells a few different types of Guitar Humidifiers. Located in Northern California, we recommend the Music Nomad Humidifier. It is an easy, no mess, simple to use humidifier that sells for a fantastic price of just under $12!
