The Rolling Stones Profile

Biography

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962 who were in the vanguard of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US from 1964–65 and an integral part of the counterculture of the 1960s.

The Rolling Stones were also instrumental in making blues a major part of rock and roll, and of changing the international focus of blues culture to the blues typified by Chess Records artists such as Muddy Waters, writer of "Rollin' Stone", the song after which the band is named.

American music critic Robert Palmer said the Rolling Stones' "remarkable endurance" stems from being "rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music" while "more ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone".
