When it comes to talking about British Rock Bands, we cannot not talk about The Rolling Stones! The band was popular for various hits like Ruby Tuesday, lazy Jane, Satisfaction and Paint It Black. The band was well known for their amazing music that will certainly get your hips shaking! Their hit song Satisfaction was composed by Keith Richards and lyrics were supplemented by Mick Jagger. It is the very reason why their fans love them so much! It is played in all their concert tours, live shows and gigs.
1966 was the year The Beatles decided to stop giving their live performances. Luckily, The Rolling Stones were there to take their place as the biggest touring band in the world. 1966-1969 were busy years for this band because they toured all throughout the years. At the same time, they were also providing constant updates to their music playlist-- providing the world with amazing songs like “Sypmathy for the Devil”, “Let's Spend The Night Together” and “Honky Tonk Woman”.
Along with the success, the band also experienced sad moments. Brian Jones' alcohol and drug abuse has lead to speech impairment and that is why he has to be replaced by Mick Taylor. Brian eventually died and it was one of the saddest moments for the rest of the Rolling Stones' band members.
However, they did not let sadness dwell and by the end of the 60's, their creative juices overflowed. They released their most popular albums such as “Beggars Banquet” and “Sticky Fingers”.
The Rolling Stones kept on going till the 1970's when they introduced amazing music albums such as “Respectable”, “Hot Stuff”, “Angie” and “It's Only Rock and Roll”.
The career of the band lasted for forty five years, during which they have released 55 albums containing original composition and music. Also, they have sold 200 millions of records and albums. During the height of their career the band played in all types of music halls-- from the small clubs to arenas. They were the band to have the highest grossing tour of all time-- “A Bigger Band Tour” which was able to earn $559 million in 147 concerts.
