UNDER MY THUMB Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Produced by Kit Lambert. Recorded at De Lane Lea Studios, London, June 28, 1967.
These two Rolling Stones’ songs were recorded by The Who as a gesture of support after Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were jailed on drug charges. It was their intention to continue recording Jagger/Richards songs for as long as the pair were in jail but they were released before The Who had a chance to record anymore. Pete played bass on both tracks because John was away on his honeymoon. He was contacted aboard the Queen Elizabeth on his way to New York at 3.00am to hear the playback. An unamused John commented “I had to go to the radio room just to hear that. I thought somebody had died!”
