Music Video of the Day: Worried About You by The Rolling Stones (1981, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg)


The Rolling Stones keep things simple in this music video for Worried About You.  Worried About You was first recorded in 1975 but was not released until 1981, when it was included on Tattoo You, an album that was largely made up of outtakes from previous recording sessions.

When Worried About You was first recorded, Billy Preston played the piano and the guitar solo was performed by Woody Perkins, who was then under consideration for the lead guitarist spot that had been vacated by Mick Taylor.  By the time the song was finally released and this video was filmed, Ron Wood had joined the band and, in the video, he’s the one who performs Perkins’s solo.  Jagger, meanwhile, stands in for Billy Preston.

This video one of many Tattoo You videos to be directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg.  Lindsay-Hogg is probably best known for directing Let It Be.

Enjoy!
