(Ob)sessions

Influence on a song, 22 years leater? I believe so!
Just listen to these two songs side by side: same rhythm, same kind of chords, E and C#m (but not exactly). Same stop and go tricks.
I believe in this Stones music, deep down from the bass notes, there could've been the origin of the Shortenin' Bread riff which Brian got 'obsessed' about, and used in many other songs.
It is also known fact that Brian was there, listening, at the Stones recording session in 1966!
The Shortenin' Bread riff can also be heard in the chorus of In My Car.
