Here's the late blues master Howlin' Wolf (born 1910 as Chester Arthur Burnett in West Point, Mississippi) doing "How Many More Years" during a 1965 TV appearance.

The introduction is notable: it's done by Mick Jagger and Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones. During the first minute or so of the video, they chat with an amiable-but-cluess emcee.

Then Jones, his hair-helmet resplendent, speaks his mind: "I think it's about time we shut up and we had Howlin' Wolf on stage."
