The Rolling Stones

rock band

British rock band considered one of the most influential of all time. The Stones appeared on the music scene at about the same time as The Beatles and balanced the mop tops' clean-cut appeal with a reverence for black blues and an appetite for excess. The Stones continue to record and tour. The band's recordings include Let It Bleed (1969), Sticky Fingers (1971), Exile on Main Street (1972) and Steel Wheels (1989). Jagger, Richards and Watts have also had variably successful solo careers.
