from The Rolling Stones – Jumping Jack Flash Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Although the song was credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, it was Bill Wyman, the bass player/keyboardist who actually wrote the famous opening riff. He was never too happy about not getting the credit for it, as told in his book Stone Alone

In fact, he wrote the basic riff for “Jumpin' Jack Flash” — though, he said with a laugh, “I don’t think Mick and Keith bandied that about too much.” They did credit him, however, with inventing the word “groupie.”
