Rolling Stones - Honky Tonk Women

 

Anyone who has watched USA films from the Deep South or South-West must have seen Honky Tonk – a type of bar, where small bands play dancing music. Sometimes, in smaller places, the music was delivered by only a piano or a jukebox.

 

The origin of the term honky tonk is not clear. „Tonk” was apparently related to William Tonk & Bros, piano makers. The factory’s products, made in Chicago and New York, were commonly known as „Tonk...
