50 Years of The Rolling Stones 1962 – 2012
As the line goes in one of the first songs recorded way back by the legendary Rolling Stones they are still around and on top of their game and sure to ‘Not Fade Away’ The band is still on the go and iconic frontman Mick Jagger is up for a lot more of the same. For the billions of folks who have followed rock music for decades the Stones may not have had hit records for a long time – but that is not really what they are all about. The Rolling Stones are best judged on live performances and only U2 and Bruce Springsteen can come anywhere near to the sizzle that Mick – Keith Richards – Ronnie Wood – Charlie Watts generate when they play live! When the Stones go on tour they make money like it is going out of fashion – with each tour pulling in hundreds of millions of pounds in revenue!
One way to get a look and feel about the guys from what is one of the greatest ever rock and roll bands in the world is to see photos and images taken through the history of the band.
