Waiting on a Friend

96-98 St. Mark's Place Manhattanilla on musiikillisesti merkittävä talo, sillä se on Led Zeppelinin albumin Physical Graffitin kannessa ja Rolling Stonesin videossa Waiting on a Friend, jonka Youtube-kuvauksessa sanotaan näin:

The building is found at 96-98 St. Mark's Place in Manhattan, which is the same building featured on the album cover of Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti. Features artist Peter Tosh sitting on a stoop with Jagger who is seen waiting on Richards. The video also features Ronnie Wood playing Mick Taylor's part. The lyrics see a more mature side of singer Mick Jagger represented. He speaks of setting aside women and vices in favor of making some sense of his life and finding the virtues inherent in true friendship-
'Don't need a whore, I don't need no booze, don't need a virgin priest. But I need someone I can cry to, I need someone to protect'
Sonny Rollins on sax.
