The Rolling Stones (Online Survey -- Your Favorite Songs)
Known as the "bad boys of rock and roll" in their early days, the Rolling Stones were a part of the 'rock music' movement in the 1960s
heralded as the "British Invasion" that changed, and ultimately enhanced, the already evolving sound that had begun in the 1950s.
Although the Beatles have been accredited as the landmark group in the "British Invasion", the Rolling Stones were right alongside the
Beatles at the forefront in this pioneering stage of rock history. The group consisted of members, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill
Wyman, Brian Jones, and Charlie Watts. The Rolling Stones authored a seemingly endless list of megahits in the decade of the 60s.
Unfortunately, they lost guitarist Brian Jones at the end of the decade in a drowning accident. Jones was a fantastic talent, with
the unique ability to play virtually instrument, and masterfully incorporate it to blend right in with the rest of the musical accompaniment
for a given song. Losing such a key member would have meant the end for most groups, but as a credit to the resiliency of the Rolling Stones,
they somehow pressed on. They've been able to constantly adapt their musical sound, and with the addition of guitarist, Ron Wood,
in the mid 1970s, they've conformed to the ever-changing style of rock music through the last 4 decades. The current members of the
group have managed to age gracefully over the years, in spite of the rigorous toll that concert tours can take on the human body,
but the Rolling Stones still have a vitality to their music that's nothing short of incredible. It's because of this virility and the
group's longevity that the Stones have many times over earned the title of "The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band".
