One of the most popular and enduring bands of the rock era, The Rolling Stones were formed in London in 1962. Active for over six decades, they are still out there on the road filling stadiums all around the world, despite the recent blow of losing drummer Charlie Watts, aged 80, in 2021. Frontman, Mick Jagger, is an enigma, and his long-standing songwriting partner in crime, Keith Richards, the most hardy, defiant and hedonistic of all rock stars. Both turn 80 this year, and Ronnie Wood – a member of the Stones for half a century – not far behind at 76. Their iconic albums include Let It Bleed, Exile On Main Street, Sticky Fingers, Some Girls, Goats Head Soup and Beggars Banquet. They are a band that need no introduction, and this playlist features interesting material from their entire career.
