The Rolling Stones

Updated on November 7, 2013

The Rolling Stones

In the late sixties, the Rolling Stones began calling themselves the "World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band" and not many could dispute the claim.

Based on Chicago blues, the Stones music has continued to sound fresh and vital through the decades and their stance of defiance, now somewhat aged, has only helped to add to their career.

Whether you love them or hate them, one must acknowledge their achievements as some of the greatest in rock & roll history.

Three Interesting Facts About The Rolling Stones
