The Rock and Roll Circus - The Dirty Mac
The Rolling Stones got together with a few of their friends in 1968 to put on a show that would be broadcast later on TV as Rock And Roll Circus. Partying down were their groupies, roadies, knife throwers, tigers, midgets, and a few musicians whose names you may have heard before: The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal and Marianne Faithful (AKA Mick Jagger’s girl friend, AKA “big titted angel”). For the occasion, John Lennon put together a rather nifty group, The Dirty Mac, with Winston Leg-Thigh (Lennon), Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell (the drummer from The Jimi Hendrix Experience), and Keith Richards. Dirty Mac performed “Yer Blues,” a song John Lennon wrote for the Beatles White Album, on the air. Unfortunately, the only other broadcast work this incrediblysupergroup found was backing up Yoko Ono and violinist Ivry Gitlis on a “Whole Lotta Yoko,” Enjoy the video of “Yer Blues”..
