The Rolling Stones, or just “The Stones”, hardly need any introduction for most people. After bursting onto the British pop scene in 1962 they have gone on to become one of the major icons of the popular music industry.
The group’s career over the years has been somewhat stormy, with three of the leading members facing drugs charges in the late 60s. Add to that their anti-establishment attitude and it is hardly surprising that they commanded a huge following of devoted fans given the general dissatisfaction of the youth of the time with all things official.
Musically the Stones were always in competition with arch rivals for domination of the music charts, the Beatles. Young people in the 1960s and 1970s tended to be either Beatles or Stones fans – you were never a fan of both!
Today the band has mellowed a little in their behavior but their music is still as commercially successful as ever with young and old fans eagerly awaiting their next album or concert tour.
They are about to begin their first concert tour for 5 years, kicking off in Anaheim, Ca on May 18, and visiting major cities throughout the USA, Canada, and then finishing off in the city where it all started for them, London.
If you are interested in seeing the Stones in concert then you would be well advised to buy your tickets now as their shows are usually sell outs.
