The Rolling Stones were at the forefront of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the United States in the 60s.
The band’s earliest members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had met each other for the first time when they were just 5 years old!
Rooted in blues and early rock and roll, the band started out playing covers but found more success with their own material;
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had one of the best songwriting partnerships in history. Together they have written hundreds of songs, including fourteen of Rolling Stone magazine’s “500 Songs of All Time.”
The band had four of the top five highest-grossing concert tours of all time and played the LARGEST rock and roll concert of all time to 1.5 million fans at Rio De Janeiro’s Copacabana Beach. The “venue” covered more than a mile of the beach and sound technicians had to delay the PA systems by one second for every 1,000 feet, to keep the speakers from clashing and feeding back!
The song “Honky Tonk Women” was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards while on holiday in Brazil. Two versions of the song were recorded by the band: the familiar hit and a honky-tonk version entitled “Country Honk” with slightly different lyrics, which appeared on Let It Bleed (1969).
