In their Clearwater, Florida hotel room
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards
worked out the opening guitar riff of Satisfaction
following Richard's purchase of a Gibson fuzz-box
earlier that day of May 6th in 1965
Satisfaction was a typical collaboration between Mick and me at the time" Keith Richards wrote in his 2010 memoir Life
"I would come up with the song and the basic idea
and Mick would do all the hard work of filling it in and making it interesting."
