    Who was the afore mentioned "Ernie Maffles"?
    The line from the news vid, is as follows:
    "...you can’t blame the drivers, they’re keeping their eyeson the road, the way Ernie Maffles wants them to."

    "Rolling Stones Gather Moss" film brings back a lot of memories for me. I was at the concert at the ABC Cinema in Hull on 21 September 1964 (not 1969). I queued all night to get a ticket which was on the front row right in front of Mick. I've never forgotten my first Stones concert and am still a big fan over 50 years later!
