Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Ian Stewart and Dick Taylor, billed as The Rollin’ Stones, played their first gig on this day in 1962, at the Marquee Club on London’s Oxford Street.
The genesis of the Rolling Stones dates back to infant school, where the young Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were friends. Hooking up again as teenagers, they formed a band. Though death, marriage and egos have changed the line-up over the years, the gist and the sound remain the same. From "Paint it Black" to "Mother's Little Helper", and from "Satisfaction" to "Sympathy for the Devil", the Stones have produced some of the most memorable tracks of classic rock - including "Jumpin' Jack Flash", for which today's cocktail is named.
