Key to the highway

When Ian Stewart died (December 12, 1985) the Rolling Stones as a band were in big trouble. Relationships within the band, especially between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, were at an all-time low. But despite that fact the band decided to put an uncredited eleventh track on their upcoming 'Dirty Work' album, as a tribute to Stu. Listen to some 30 seconds of real boogie-woogie piano, a touching salute to one of the band's founding members. In the liner notes to the album it read: "Thanks Stu for 25 years of boogie-woogie".
