The Rolling Stones have reunited at the site of their first gig.
To mark their 50th anniversary the legendary band returned to London’s Marquee Club on Oxford Street.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood posed this week for veteran rock photographer Rankin in front of London’s Marquee Club to mark the 50th anniversary of their inaugural gig at the Oxford Street venue on July 12, 1962.
Their first hit, a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Come On,” came a year later. To celebrate the rare rock milestone, the band gathered in front of the Marquee for their first group photo since 2008.
They plan to attend a photo exhibition dedicated to their careers today, when the book Rolling Stones 50 will also be released. But will they tour again? Keith Richards tells the BBC…
“There’s things in the works – I think it’s definitely happening. But when? I can’t say yet… We’re playing around with the idea and had a couple of rehearsals – we’ve got together and it feels so good.”
Speaking about a possible new album, in March, Keith Richards told Rolling Stone “We’ll just get the boys back together again then and maybe cut a side. I’ve got plenty in the locker here, but it’s not on tape.”
