ROLLING STONES. English rock band formed in April 1962 in London when guitarist and harmonica player Brian Jones and pianist Ian Stewart joined vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards. Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early lineup. After signing to Decca Records in 1963, the band changed their name from "The Rollin' Stones" to "The Rolling Stones". In 1963 Jagger and Richards formed their songwriting partnership and eventually took over leadership of the band as Brian Jones became increasingly troubled and erratic due to his drug addiction. After recording mainly covers of American blue and R&B songs, every studio record since the 1966 album Aftermath has featured mainly Jagger/Richards songs. Mick Taylor replaced Jones shortly before Jones' death in 1969. Taylor quit in 1974, and was replaced in 1975 by Faces guitarist Ron Wood who has remained with the band since. Stewart was removed from the official lineup in 1963 to continue as the band's road manager and occasional keyboardist until his death in 1985. Wyman left in 1992 and was replaced by Darryl Jones who is not an official band member but has been the primary bassist since 1994. First popular in the UK, The Rolling Stones toured the US repeatedly during the early 1960s "British Invasion". The Rolling Stones have released 22 studio albums in the UK (24 in the US), eight concert albums (nine in the US) and numerous compilations; and have album sales estimated at more than 200 million worldwide. Sticky Fingers (1971) began a string of eight consecutive studio albums reaching number one in the United States. In 1989 The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame and in 2004 they ranked No4 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. In 2008, Billboard magazine ranked The Rolling Stones at No10 on their list of Greatest Artists of all time and as the second most successful group ever in the history of the Billboard charts. Drummer Charlie Watts sadly passed away at the age of 80 on August 24th 2021
