“New York (in 1964 and ‘65) was wonderful and so on, and L.A. was also kind of interesting. But outside of that we found it the most repressive society, very prejudiced in every way. There was still segregation. And the attitudes were fantastically old-fashioned. Americans shocked me by their behavior and their narrow-mindedness. It’s changed fantastically over the last 30 years. But so has everything else (laughs).” ― Mick Jagger on American attitudes in 1964 and 1965.
