The Story Behind “Let’s Spend the Night Together” by The Rolling Stones

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones were arrested for drug possession at Richards’ estate in 1967.

The pair believed they were targeted due to media scrutiny on rock star lifestyles and faced legal battles afterward.

"Let's Spend the Night Together" was recorded during the Stones' American tour with vocals added later in London.

During recording, police unexpectedly entered the studio, prompting quick action by manager Andrew Oldham to evade arrest.

The policemen joined the session briefly, providing percussion with their nightsticks, a moment immortalized in the song's final mix.
