The Rolling Stones' lotus leaf stage provided great views for everyone. The Stones accessed the stage via a ground-level elevator built into the center of the stage. In New York and Los Angelas, the flower petals remained upright and slowly opened as Aaron Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" was played. © ROGER BARONE 1975
