The Rolling Stones

It’s 50 years of the best rock band in the world. The Rolling Stones.

The late Ron Blackmore, who worked for the Paul Dainty Corporation was a client of mine and through him I got to cut the Rolling Stones hair on their 1973 Australian Tour.

I was taken to Noah’s Hotel in Exhibition Street, Melbourne. I arrived at their floor and Mick Jagger was sitting on the ground in the hallway. He was wearing white pants and a yellow v neck top. He was making comment about some red neck aussie guy who’d called him a ‘poof’ in the lift. I first cut Bill Wymans hair and then Nicky Hopkins. Unfortunately Mick had just had his hair cut during the South American Tour.
