Rolling Stones - "Let It Bleed"

Rolling Stones – “Let It Bleed”

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. In the vanguard of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US from 1964–65 and symbols of rebellious youth, 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 more primitive blues typified by John Lee Hooker and 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”. They were considered to be symbols of rebellious youth in their mid-1960s heyday, and were portrayed as the “Anti-Beatles”. Into the late 1960s and early 1970s the band released Beggars Banquet (1968), Let It Bleed (1969), Sticky Fingers (1971) and Exile on Main St. (1972). This string of four albums is considered to be the band’s “Golden Age”, and generally regarded as their finest work.

The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Rolling Stone magazine ranked them fourth on the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list and their estimated album sales are above 200 million. They have released twenty-four studio albums, eleven live albums and numerous compilations. Sticky Fingers (1971) was their first of eight consecutive number one studio albums in the United States. In 2008 the Rolling Stones ranked 10th on the “Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists” chart. In 2012, they celebrated their 50th Anniversary with the release of new Greatest Hits album GRRR featuring two new singles including chart hit Doom and Gloom. In 2013, along with Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons they headlined Glastonbury.

The first settled line-up had Brian Jones on guitar and harmonica, Ian Stewart on piano, Mick Jagger on lead vocals and harmonica, Keith Richards on guitar and backing vocals, Bill Wyman on bass and Charlie Watts on drums. Jones left the band about a month prior to his death in 1969, and was replaced by Mick Taylor, who was replaced by Ronnie Wood in 1975. Wyman left in 1993. Since Wyman’s departure, bassist Darryl Jones has been a collaborator rather than an actual band member.
