Awesome BAND of the week- The Stones

This weeks band pick is one of my all time fav’s!!!
One of my favorite songs is off the “Sticky Fingers “ album.

It's called “Can't you hear me knocking”.

It has a very special meaning to me.

I would love to have their box set, so if anyone out there wants to buy it for me I would greatly appreciate it. wink wink

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in April 1962 by Brian Jones.

After signing to Decca Records in 1963, the band changed their name from "The Rollin' Stones" to "The Rolling Stones".

The Rolling Stones are notable in modern popular music for assimilating various musical genres into their own collective sound.

Band Members
Brian Jones, guitarist and harmonica player
Ian Stewart, pianist
Mick Jagger, lead vocals, harmonica, percussion, guitar, bass, keyboards
Keith Richards, guitars, vocals, bass, keyboards
Ronnie Wood , guitars, backing vocals, bass
Charlie Watts, drums, percussion
Darryl Jones , bass

Brian Jones initially led the band, but Jagger and Richards assumed band leadership after becoming prolific hit songwriters and after Jones became increasingly erratic.

In 1969 Mick Taylor joined the band on guitar shortly before Jones' untimely death until quitting in 1974. Since then guitarist Ronnie Wood has been with the band.

Stewart was taken from the official lineup in 1963 to continue as the band's road manager and occasional keyboardist until his death in 1985.

Wyman left in 1990 and was replaced by Darryl Jones as the primary bassist.

The Rolling Stones were first popular in Europe and became popular in North America during the British Invasion of the early sixties. The Rolling Stones have released 22 studio albums in the UK (24 in the US), eight concert albums (nine in the US). Album sales estimated at more than 200 million worldwide.

In 1989 The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

2004 they ranked number 4 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

In 2008, Billboard magazine ranked The Rolling Stones at number ten on "The Billboard Hot 100 Top All-Time Artists".
