In the summer of 2012, the Rolling Stones celebrated the 50th anniversary of their first gig at the Marquee Club in London.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the original bad boys of rock and roll have endured for a half century despite drug and alcohol problems, several changes to the band’s line-up, and occasional rumors of impending retirement or break-up. (I’m sure all of those “this is the final tour” rumors must have sold a lot of concert tickets over the years).
The first time I completely “got” the Stones was when I saw the movie “The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus”, a film of performances by the Stones, The Who, and others, which was shot in 1968 but not released until 1996. Frontman Mick Jagger’s stage performance is fabulous – nothing like the manic, arena-strutting rooster impersonations most of us know him for, with the rest of the band solidly delivering.
You may or may not be a fan or even “get” the Stones, but one thing is undeniable: SEO is like the Rolling Stones. Sound far-fetched to you? Read on and become converted!
