‘Granny Clampett’ takes on the Rolling Stones

“The [Rolling Stones’ 1965] tour continued successfully through Baltimore, Knoxville and Charlotte, where [photographer] Gered Mankowitz and [drummer] Charlie Watts were beaten up in the hotel coffee bar by a little old lady with an umbrella, who looked exactly like Granny Clampett of ‘The Beverly Hillbillies.’ She’d taken a dislike to them because of the length of their hair. The manager finally led her away.”

— From “Stone Alone: The Story of a Rock ‘N’ Roll Band” (1990) by Bill Wyman with Ray Coleman
