The Rolling Stones began their metamorphosis from two separate directions. Jagger and Richards, friends since primary school days, met up again at college and formed Little Boy Blue & the Blue Boys. Meanwhile, Jones was a member of Alex Corner’s Blues Incorporated which later included Watts as one of its members. Jones headed off on his own with his mate Ian Stewart, a pianist, to form a new band and were then introduced to Jagger & Richards through a jamming session with Korner. Jagger became vocalist for Blues Incorporatedfor a while but missed out on a BBC radio session with the outfit. He had put together his own outfit by then and they got a break to play a gig for Korner who was unable to fulfil his resident’s spot at the Marquee Club due to the radio commitment. The band was called The Rollin’ Stones by Jones after a Muddy Waters’ song (the extra ‘g’ being added later by a record label executive). The first Stones line up was Jagger, Richards, Jones, Stewart, Dick Taylor on bass, and Mick Avory on drums. Taylor and Avory left soon after and were replaced by Tony Chapman on drums and Wyman on bass. Eventually Chapman left to be replaced by Watts. Finally, Stewart was removed from the line-up at the insistence of The Stones’ manager Andrew Oldham. Further line up changes occurred down the years. Following Jones’ departure and subsequent death in 1969 - he felt Jagger & Richards music was going in the wrong direction - Mick Taylor joined the band. Taylor left in ‘74 to be replaced by ex-Faces guitarist Ronnie Woods.

Initial chart success in the UK came through their association with The Beatles. “I Wanna Be Your Man”, their first UK Top 20 hit, being penned by Lennon & McCartney. In 1965, The Stones went about emulating The Beatles by penning their own material. The first three singles from Jagger & Richards were all huge number one hits in the UK, “The Last Time” (Oz #2; US #9), “Get Off Of My Cloud” (Oz #7; US #1 for 2 wks) and the outrageous “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” (Oz # 3; US #1 for 4 wks). In all The Stones sent fourteen songs to the number one spot (Only The Beatles amassed more #1 hits than The Rolling Stones in the pop group category) but their only triple chart topper was “Honky Tonk Women” in 1969 which spent a total of 14 weeks at the top (Oz 5 wks; UK 5 wks; US 4 wks).
Still touring in the late ‘90s, The Rolling Stones have become the biggest grossing live-act pop group in the world.
