Have you seen a stranger set of Supreme Court bedfellows than Justices Thomas, Ginsberg, Kagen, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh voting 6-3 to support a company that was refused a trademark for clothing line called FUCT because it was considered vulgar. https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/24/politics/supreme-court-fuct-first-amendment/index.html

If I had one piece of unsolicited advice for people who want to be quoted or in the media more, it would be:
Talk like you'd talk normally. Don't try to sound smart or stick to messaging points. Be real, have a point of view, and I'll call you over and over again.

A few years later, the band came back to Chess and recorded Satisfaction, the song that would launch them to super stardom, but the recordings from the 1964 Chess recording ended up on the record 12x5.
Before the Rolling Stones were famous, they came to Chess Records in 1964 to record with their blues heroes. According to the tour guide, Muddy Waters helped carry their equipment up the rickety stairs, then played with them. The Stones got their name from a Muddy Waters song.
Yesterday I had the personal thrill of touring the former headquarters of Chess Records where legends like Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry recorded their music. I sat in the studio where Etta James recorded At Last with a full orchestra behind her. It was something.
Absolutely insane. https://twitter.com/imkialikethecar/status/1141820336289140736
