The Rolling Stones Re-Release “Brown Sugar” ft. Eric Clapton

"Hang On Sloopy" became the official rock song of Ohio in 1985

As part of the hype for their upcoming re-release of Sticky Fingers (out June 9t), the band released an alternate version of their 1970 song “Brown Sugar,” featuring Eric Clapton.

In other Stones news: in 1966, the Vibrations/McCoy’s hit “Hang On Sloopy” was a Rolling Stones live show classic cover. Then, just like that, it disappeared, not to be played in almost 50 years, even though it became the official rock song of Ohio in 1985. That changed, though, when the Stones brought their Zip Code tour to Columbus, and pulled out the single to celebrate.

Just like they always do, every time Mick Jagger sang the chorus, the audience chimed in, spelling out “O-H-I-O”. They also asked the Ohio University Singers from Athens to meet them onstage for the “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” encore.
