Rolling Stones at Chess Records: A Legendary Encounter

This week, visit Chess Records for a tour of the legendary studios and a temporary Rolling Stones exhibit. In June 1964, the Rolling Stones made history by visiting the iconic Chess Records in Chicago, a move that significantly influenced their music and career. Chess Records, founded by Leonard and Phil Chess, was a cornerstone of the blues, having produced legendary artists like Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and Chuck Berry.

During their visit, the Stones recorded several tracks, including “It’s All Over Now” and “2120 South Michigan Avenue,” named after the address of Chess Records. This session marked a pivotal moment in the Stones’ career, as they drew heavily from the raw, authentic blues sound that Chess Records was known for. This influence is evident in their music, which seamlessly blends rock with traditional blues elements.

The experience at Chess Records was more than just a recording session for the Rolling Stones; it was a deep dive into the roots of the music they loved. They interacted with their idols and absorbed the essence of the Chicago blues, which would become a staple in their sound and contribute to their global success.
