In late November 1981, in the midst of the massive American tour the band undertook in support of their then-new LP, Tattoo You, The Rolling Stones thought they'd drop by Buddy Guy's Checkerboard Lounge club in Chicago, prior to their three-night stand at the Rosemont Horizon.

The band was there to see one of their main influences, Muddy Waters—the father of modern Chicago blues—play. Of course though, it didn't take long for most of the band—Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and pianist Ian Stewart—to make their way onto the stage with Waters. Luckily for us, the resulting jam was captured on camera.

You can watch the ad hoc group play "Hoochie Coochie Man" above.

For good measure, we've also included their performance of "Mannish Boy" below. Enjoy!
