The Rolling Stones is one of the most famous and “long-lasting” bands in the world. Its story began in 1962. Initially, the band’s leader was Brian Jones but with time, he was replaced by a creative duo of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. They were joined by a keyboardist Ian Steward, drummer Charlie Watts, and bass guitarist Bill Wyman.
The band’s early albums, such as The Rolling Stones, 12x5, and Out of Our Heads mostly included cover versions of American blues and R&B songs. However, they still managed to bring The Rolling Stones huge popularity making them one of the leaders of the “British Invasion”. During their tour in North America, the tour manager introduced the band as the greatest rock and roll group in the world. Thanks to their bad boy image, Rolling Stones became an opposition to the good boy image of The Beatles.
