Blitz Club, (in)famously) turned Mick Jagger away. (quite right too)

At that time the legacy of The Stones and even The Beatles was in question. The New Wave/New Romantics with their electronica had brushed all that jangly and Merseybeat rock guitar aside.

There's an interview with David Sylvian were he says Japan were in the same studio as Paul McCartney recording an album and they blanked McCartney as they considered his music dreadfully old hat at the time. That would have been sometime 79-81.
