Who are The Rolling Stones?

If for whatever reason you have been living under a rock all your life - pardon the pun - The Rolling Stones are an iconic British rock group, formed in 1962, that drew on Chicago blues stylings to create a unique vision of the dark side of post-1960s counterculture.

The original line-up of the band consisted of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts. Later members were Mick Taylor, Ron Wood, and Darryl Jones.

The rock legends won their first Grammy Award for Voodoo Lounge (1994) and their second for Blue & Lonesome (2016); they had received a lifetime achievement award in 1987, as well as being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.

Iconic albums consist of: ‘Sticky Fingers’ (1971), ‘Exile On Main St.’ (1972), ‘Let It Bleed’ (1969), ‘Beggars Banquet’ (1968) and many, many, many more - The Rolling Stones have a grand total of 30 studio albums.

Scoring a total of 37 top 10 albums - including nine number ones - on Billboard, The Stones have cemented themselves as one of the greatest bands ever globally, recording 240 million records sold worldwide.
