The Rolling Stones Celebrate 50 Years In Music!

Circa, 1963. The matching Tweed suits would eventually go.
July 12, 2012: My absolute favourite band, The Rolling Stones, will celebrate 50 years in the music business, marking the anniversary of their very first stage performance.
On July 12, 1962, Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones with three others played their first ever performance at The Marquee Club on Oxford Street, London, It was the first time they performed under the band name, The Rolling Stones. Childhood friends Jagger and Richards were just 18 years old at the time and Jones, who drowned in the swimming pool at his home in 1969, was 20-years-old.
On February 16, 2006, “The Greatest Rock n’ Roll Band in the World” played a free concert to the biggest public audience of their career, an estimated 1.5 million people, on Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

After five epic decades of music and 29 studio albums that changed the world forever . . . The Rolling Stones  are gearing up to hit the road again in 2013!  And let’s hope, not for the last time. ;)
