On this day in 2002,Mick Jagger became a Sir when he was knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours. I knew I wanted to look at a Rolling Stones cover today, but there are so many out there, I didn't know where to begin.
I then was looking for a cool story to tell, and came across this tale. Otis Redding recorded a rendition of "Satisfaction" for his album Otis Blue, 1965. Otis claimed that he did not know the lyrics of the song, saying: "I use a lot of words different than the Stones' version," Redding noted. "That's because I made them up."
Here is Otis Redding's cover of the Stone's "Satisfaction"
