JustWondering Ian Stewart played on a song inspired by a Little Richard song. The title has a contraction in it. Any ideas which song this is. I'm not sure if the Little Richard "inspiration" was a cover, a riff or whatever. Also, we was a guest on the track, not a member of the band. Thanks for any input.

justinkurian I'm not sure if it's a Stone's tune, but I remember a story similar to that about a Zeppelin song called 'Boogie with Stu.'

sandrew Yes, it's a Led Zeppelin song, from 1975's "Physical Graffiti."

VoodooChileInWOnderl If you are referring to the song Boogie with Stu, it was inspired by the song “Ooh my head” composed by Mexican-American rocker Ricardo Valenzuela known as Richie / Ritchie Valens and not by Little Richards.

This is a text from our site dedicated to STU:

Ian plays piano and co-writes "Boogie with Stu" which is also dedicated to him. A loose jam recorded at the same sessions that produced Rock & Roll for the 4th album. This has Ian Stewart, the Rolling Stones’ tour manager and resident boogie-woogie specialist, playing barrel-house piano. Heavily based on Richie Valens’ 50s hit “Ooh My Head” (check “La Bamba” movie), hence the credits to his widow. Credits for the song includes Page, Plant, Bonham, Jones, Ian Stewart and Mrs. Valens (Richie Valens Widow).

Some months ago we received a note about that the credits for Mrs. Valens is to his mother and not to his widow as he was so young when he died with Buddy Holly when their private plane crashed in the midst of a Midwest tour in 1959. He was only 18!

I left it that way as someone told me that I was right.
