SPIN IT: The Apolloes “Laugh in My Face”

From Atlanta, GA, 1966. When an off-campus fraternity at Georgia Southern College in Statesboro booked the Rolling Stones in May ’66, the Apolloes played as a warm-up band. When the Stones took the stage, they immediately turned off the South Georgia audience with boorish profanity. The crowd booed them off the stage and began chanting “Apolloes!! Apolloes!!” The guys set up again and gave the crowd their money’s worth.
