Rolling Stones

It’s hard to remember a time without the Rolling Stones. In fact, for most of us it’s impossible since we weren’t born when the band was formed. They’ve been through a lot of changes over the past fifty-plus years, but today is the 52nd anniversary of their first live gig together. [photo via...]

On July 12, 1962, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Brian Jones took the stage, alongside Ian Stewart and Dick Taylor, at the Marquee Club on Oxford Street in London. Calling themselves “The Rollin’ Stones,” their first gig consisted solely of covers, mostly early jazz/rock covers of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry tunes. The band proper wouldn’t really take shape until bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts joined in late ’62 and early ’63 respectively, We’re¬†willing to bet that none of the men that took the stage that night would have ever dreamed that they would still be playing live together 52 years later. In fact, they’re current tour was put on hiatus, but is scheduled to resume in Australia in October.

And, of course, the Stones went on to pick up fame, fortune, and lots of hot women. In fact, we’ve collected a Top 50 of the band’s hottest babes here. It’s hard to imagine that Mick and Keith are even still alive, let alone making music together, and the fact that it all started on this day is pretty damn cool…
