Jumpin' Jack Flash

Jumpin' Jack Flash by The Rolling Stones was a UK number 1 hit on Wednesday, June 19, 1968 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Who is "Jack Flash"? His name is Jack Dyer, and he was Keith Richards' gardener. Bill Wyman wrote some of this song, but it was still credited only to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, which Wyman was never happy about. Mick Jagger said this song is about "having a hard time and getting out. Just a metaphor for getting out of all the acid things." A promotional film, which was an early music video, was shot with The Stones performing this wearing body paint and outrageous costumes. The paint and costumes would become a trend in the '70s with bands like Kiss.
