After that fantastic night in Manchester we were scared silly. You know how these things catch on. We could easily have ended up with an outbreak of swan-diving from the balconies and somebody killed.

  England, 1964


The worst thing that Blackpool could've done was to book the Rolling Stones in its Scottish weekend. And what used to happen was that Glasgow or Edinburgh would close down for a week and everybody would move south. And Blackpool being Britain's equivalent of Coney Island - so the Empress Ballroom, there was supposed to be something like 6000 people in it, there was more like 10 000. The last thing they wanted was their girlfriends getting overexcited at the Rolling Stones which they looked upon as being a little bit faggy. So Jones is really egging the girls on and he's being very, very camp. Jagger's not being bothered, he's just dancing away there. And there was... a gang down front and they decide to start spitting, I mean, talk about PUNKS. And, exactly, as I say, they start spitting at Brian Jones.. So Keith comes down and he goes Stop it! They won't do it, it keeps on. And so someone goes and spits at Keith. So Keith walks down there and this guy's hands are on the stage and his chin's on the thing and he goes boom, stomps on the guy's hands and steps back. And it was just like starting a football match, kicking the ball.
- Roy Carr, journalist

 And that's it. Good night. The whole hall just ee-rupted. I'm surprised they didn't get hold of Keith's leg and pull him off the stage... We could hear cymbals going through the air, thumps as all the amps got smashed up, and then there was the most glorious fucking crash of all time - there'd been a grand piano on the stage... Not having been able to get hold of the Stones, they started fighting amonst themselves.
- Ian Stewart, Stones' pianist & road manager (1962-85)
