Rolling Stones

They’ve been called the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World, and for good reason: Nobody has done it better, and for as long, as the Rolling Stones. They started out as a British blues band that copied their American R&B idols but quickly evolved into one of the ‘60s’ most important groups. By the end of the decade they were in the middle of a hot streak that included many of the best albums ever made. Even after their 1972 double-album masterpiece ‘Exile on Main St.’ almost ripped them apart, they rebounded with two more classics, 1978’s ‘Some Girls’ and 1981’s ‘Tattoo You.’ In 2013 they embarked on a 50th-anniversary tour, showing they still rank among the greats.
