is a song from The Rolling Stones, primarily written by Mick Jagger. It’s the opening track and lead single from their album Sticky Fingers from 1971. Like Bill Wyman stated in his book „Rolling with the Stones“ in 2002, the lyrics were partially inspired by the former Ikette Claudia Lennear, who dated Mick Jagger while he wrote it. While Tina Turner was on the road with her Break Every Rule Tour, she was a guest vocalist at Mick Jaggers „Tour of Japan“ at the Tokyo Dome on March 23, 1988 and performed „Brown Sugar“ live on stage together with Mick. This version was released later on the bootleg album From Far East To Down Under, which includes another duet with „It’s Only Rock’n Roll“.
Writer: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards
