Gathers No Moss…

On this date in rock and roll history in 1962, the Rolling Stones make their live debut at the Marquee Club in London (a group name founder Brian Jones picked at random from a Muddy Waters album he spotted while on the phone with the promoter). The band at this point features Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Jones, with Dick Taylor, later of the Pretty Things, on bass and Tony Chapman on drums. The band is paid 20 pounds. Nice work if you can get it! And the rest, as they say, is history…Thanks to for the info, and I hope to still be rockin’ 50 years from now!

The 50 years ago clip was spiked by the time i got to it but the Marquee
Club film is beyond amazing!! Once again I have to come to We Have All Been Here Before for the best and very smartest rock 'n roll finds. Thank you!
