  • What a life Jagger & Richards have had.
  • They probably can't remember much of it............

    The Greatest Rock n Roll band that will ever be.......ever!

    YES YES YES YES YES!!!!

    Not only are they without equal - they are so far ahead of any other band.
  • Any band been going for longer - The Beach Boys maybe?
  • Black Dyke Mills band .. 1855

    are they an LGBT band ???
  • Can't believe it's 5 years since their 50 year anniversary gigs. Those gigs were still as good as any they have done (at least that I have seen). Looking forward to their Lucca and Amsterdam gigs in September which I have managed to get tickets for.
  • I guess they will keep on playing gigs until one of Jagger/Richards/Watts can't do it any more. Could quite easily make it to 60th anniversary!

    I think Ronnie deserves to be added to the list now - even I accept him as a Stone after 42 years!! Moreover, if Ronnie quit I don't think Keith would continue.
  • Just read that The Hollies are also celebrating their 55th anniversary this year as well - had no idea they had never stopped and were still going!
  • Even if people debate whether or not they are the best rock and roll band ever, I don't think anyone can debate Jagger is without doubt the best frontman in history
  • must admit, was never a Stones fan growing up, but i went to see them at Wembley Stadium for the Voodoo Lounge tour ? and they were absolutely brilliant - totally the best ever . Then about 4/5 years later i saw them at Twickenham, and they were so wooden you could have put their CD on.
  • Reading Keith Richards - Life, as we speak... amazing book, amazing history, thoroughly recommend.
  • I remember listening with my mate Peter Searle in the early 1960's to Rolling Stones first L.P.
    It was my earliest recollection of a rock and roll album.
    I still occasionally listen to the record and get a kick out of "Route 66" and stung by "King Bee".
    I saw the Stones live in Hyde Park in 1968 and again at Wembley for the Voodoo lounge tour.
    There's some good film on youtube of Stone's doing "Gimme Shelter" well worth a look.
    Greatest rock and roll band ever.

    Apart from The Boss of course.

    I've read it too, great read, thoroughly recommend it. What I found comes out through out the book, is it's always been about the music, never the fame and glory that kids want today, just the music. You get the feeling that even if the band hadn't been a hit, he'd still be writing and playing music somewhere.

    Yes Agree, thats the feeling I got when I read it.
