The Rolling Stones Bio

The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones have made classic hard rock hits since 1962, with a current lineup of Mick Jagger on lead vocals, Keith Richards on guitar and vocals, Charlie Watts on drums, and Ronnie Wood on guitar. The band’s roots trace all the way back to the early 50s, when Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were classmates and childhood friends.

After getting banned from The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, the Stones helped launch the British Invasion and rose to become one of the biggest rock bands in the world with the release of The Rolling Stones, Now! in 1965. The album shot to the top of the charts in both the US and the UK, setting off a decades-long wave of success.

Over twenty years later, and after a career spanning more than 24 albums, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted the Rolling Stones in 1989, awarding them the title of the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band”. Today, the Stones continue to make chart-topping hits like the 2012 single “Doom and Gloom”. And Rolling Stone magazine ranked the band #4 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Throughout their career, the Rolling Stones have sold over 200 million records worldwide. Tickets to the Rolling Stones live in concert almost always sell out to hordes of classic rock fans waiting to catch a glimpse of the rock icons in person.

I took advantage of The Rolling Stones’ $85 promotion to snag two tickets to the first show of the current leg of their 50 and Counting Tour at Staples Center last Friday, and, while they certainly had flashes of being “The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World,” that title has sadly passed them by. For $85 each, I was able to buy two “budget” tickets, the only catch being that I wouldn’t find out where my seats were until I arrived at Staples Center; I could be in the pit or up in the last row. Luckily, we ended up with $650 floor seats, much to our delight and the chagrin of those around us. The show’s production value was top-notch, with a giant re-creation of the band's lips logo serving as the frame to a massive video screen, though I expected nothing less with the high ticket prices. The band can still rock, but Mick’s voice doesn’t quite have the range, and Keith’s fingers aren’t so nimble anymore. Mick has seemingly endless energy and charisma (his banter between songs is still top notch), Ronnie Wood can still jam, and it was amazing hearing songs like “Gimme Shelter” and “Jumping Jack Flash” performed live by their originators in any capacity. The set was a little heavy on songs from Ronnie’s years with the band (mid-70’s and later) for my liking, though they’ve been adding live-rarities like “Emotional Rescue” to the setlist, which is a nice treat for Rolling Stones concert veterans. While “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” was the biggest sing-along of the night, by far the highlight of the show was seeing Mick Taylor come out for “Midnight Rambler.” The virtuoso can still shred and easily upstaged his former bandmates for the 10 minutes he was on stage. Ultimately, it was a very fun show, particularly because of the sheer quality of the songs in The Stones’ repertoire, but there are definitely better legacy acts still touring that won’t cost you an arm and a leg for tickets.

Christmas 2007 i was seventeen years old and i still cared what i would get for christmas. The whole family sat around the christmas tree and i was more excited then ever, why?. Well because in the tree it was hanging two envelopes, one for me and one for my sister. And the last time i got an envelope for christmas it was a ticket to London. So, a spoiled child as i was, i thought that the dream had come true again -a trip to London. No, i got a letter containing a concert ticket to The Rolling Stones concert in gothenburg. The same time that i saw the ticket i was asking myself, "why in hell are they giving me a concert ticket to a band i've never listened to"?. Oh yes, a spoiled child was the right name for me then, but believe it or not, this ticket changed my whole view in music and over one night i decided to never be spoiled again- It was the best concert i ever experienced. The rolling stones, one of the worlds most successful rock and roll, blues band of all time have not come to an end. This might sound bad, but they did not leave the world at the age of 27 and today they all are around 70y and have no plans to leave the world. That is why i naming them to be worlds most original rock and roll band, ever. In the 1960s, the english rockband had some competition from the innocent and pure band, The Beatles. But with Mick Jagger and his partner in crime and glimmer twin Keith Richards, they managed to be the "dangerous" and "raw" The Beatles, by selling worldwide more than 200 million albums. Today they have been a band for 50 years and the age will probably never matter for them, especially not for Keith Richards. If i get the chance to see them again, i would be more then happy to start the concert night with, Start me up. And i would be more then happy if the concert would be in London, then would London not be the excitement it would be to see the rock and roll band, one more time.
