Live Ledge #74: London's Burning

Since it's Olympics time, I figured this would be a good chance to do a show based around our Brit pals. Because it coincided with the 69th birthday of one of England's most famous musical exports (or close enough since his birthday was yesterday), there's also quite a few American bands covering this legend's greatest songs.
Of course, I'm talking about Sir Michael Phillip "Mick" Jagger, who was born on July 26, 1943, and whose band, The Rolling Stones, are celebrating their 50th anniversary. Stones covers are never hard to find, and tonight's include remakes by Patti Smith, David Bowie, The Pogues, and so many more.
