Formed in London in 1962, The Rolling Stones is an English rock band originally composed of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar) and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. Mick Taylor, Ronnie Wood, Daryl Jones and Chuck Leavell also joined at some point in the band's evolution. While R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones' early material, their repertoire has always included rock and roll. Through the years ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone but The Rolling Stones's music stays popular and relevant which according to a critic is due to them and their music being rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music.
This album is one of my series of lomographic tributes to this cult classic rock and roll band.
