The Rolling Stones have often been labeled the "World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band," and they’ve now been named one of the world's greatest recording innovators.
Back in 1968, based on the advice of their piano player and road manager Ian Stewart, The Stones commissioned a mobile recording truck, which was used to record the albums Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street.
That truck is now the subject of a short documentary on YouTube, The Rolling Stones and the Most Important Music Studio on Wheels.
The truck, which is still part of the National Music Center in Calgary, Alberta, was also used by Led Zeppelin on their third and fourth albums, along with Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti; Fleetwood Mac used it on Penguin; Deep Purple on Machine Head and Burn; and The Who on their iconic Who's Next. It was also used for recordings by Black Sabbath, Bob Marley, Iron Maiden, Dire Straits, Nazareth, Santana and Bad Company.
