The ‘Tickets @ 2 Tuesday song of the day is “Honky Tonk Women” by The Rolling Stones. It was released from the album “Through The Past Darkly.”

The Stones started recording this as a Country song based on Hank Williams’ “Honky Tonk Blues.” They made it into a rocker for the single release from the album.

The song was banned in China. When the group made arrangements to play there for the first time in 2003, they had to agree not to sing “Brown Sugar,” “Let’s Spend The Night Together,” and “Beast Of Burden.” They ended up not playing there because of a respiratory disease that was going around China.

The distinctive cowbell used to open the song was played by producer Jimmy Miller.

When we play it between two and three we’ll take the 8th caller at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a  4-Pack of tickets to attend the Los Angeles Boat Show at the L.A. Convention Center and at Burton Chase Park in Marina Del Rey February 7th thru the 10th, good luck!
