Dept. of hoopla: Chum

About Keith Richard listening party at Electric Lady Studios on Eighth Street.

It is a funny read as

“the efforts of middle-aged men to appear cool in the presence of such a figure give off a particular pheromone”.

It also shows that

“The Rolling Stones, through the years, have been master P.R. stuntmen.”

“this was as much a not-listening party as a listening party, because, even when the music was playing, people kept talking. For many people, even professional listeners, listening isn’t partying. It’s work. And this was a party.”
