The Rolling Stones began calling themselves the "World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band" in the Sixties, and few argued with them — even then. More than 40 years later, the band's music continues to sound vital. With literally scores of genre-setting hits under the group's belt — and fronted by two of rock's biggest archetypes — the Rolling Stones have done more to define the look, attitude and sound of rock & roll than any other band in the genre's history.

In a 1978 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Mick Jagger said: ‘You know, when you drive through Bakersfield on a Sunday morning or Sunday evening, all the Country music radio stations start broadcasting black Gospel services live from LA. And that’s what the song refers to. But the song’s really about driving alone, listening to the radio.’ Asked if the girl in the song was a real one, Jagger replied, ‘Yeah, she’s real, she’s a real girl.’
