Yesterday's post about the Billy Joel video shoot on St. Mark's Place circa 1986 prompted a few people to discuss when the Rolling Stones filmed "Waiting on a Friend" down the block at No. 98.
So! Let's revisit this EVG post from Dec. 23, 2008... titled I'm not waiting on a lady...say, what the hell is Mick wearing anyway?
Yeah, we've all seen the video for "Waiting on a Friend" enough times...
However, we've never seen these photos taken by schillid when the Stones were shooting the video on St. Mark's Place in July 1981. (I found the photos at the It's Only Rock'n Roll Stones fan site.) Here, the boys hang out at the old St. Mark's Bar & Grill on the corner of First Avenue.
Here's what the corner looks like now.
