Not Fade Away
Episode 9: Christopher McKittrick
“Can’t Give It Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones in New York City“
Hey there! Hi There! Ho there!
The Not Fade Away podcast visiting The Rolling Stones once again but this time we are moving from 1969 concert at Altamont to the Stones’ crazy years in New York City in the 60s,70s & 80s. Author Christopher McKittrick’s new book Can’t Give it Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones in New York City is an homage to the band and the city which seems like their second home.
In this episode, Chris (as he liked to be called) and I talk about:
- His inspiration for writing the book and what myths he was able to uncover
- The impact New York City has had on The Rolling Stones and vice versa
- Why the Stones have maintained their popularity for 50+ years
- The process of writing and researching the book
- His favorite Stones song and what he hopes to hear them play live one day
- The Stones early videos in the MTV days
