The Rolling Stones mark 50th anniversary of gig
ROCK veterans The Rolling Stones returned to where it all began as they posed outside a recreation of the venue of their first ever gig, half a century on.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood gathered at a mock-up of the old Marquee club venue to mark the 50th anniversary of their debut.
They were captured by renowned photographer Rankin, the first time the members had been pictured together for four years, since the premiere of their Shine A Light movie.
The group played their first show at the club in London’s Oxford Street on July 12, 1962, under the name The Rollin’ Stones, hastily chosen from a song by their blues hero Muddy Waters.
