The Rolling Stones have well earned their legendary status after giving the world almost sixty years of rock and roll. Formed during the early 1960s British blues boom, the Stones were swept up in the British Invasion and brilliantly marketed as a grittier alternative to the Beatles. A series of transatlantic hits like “Satisfaction,” “Ruby Tuesday” and “Paint It, Black” solidified their fan base and by 1969 their unique sound, demonic image and legendary excesses were well established. The Rolling Stones overcame death, addictions and changing musical styles to ratify their position as “The World’s Greatest Rock’n’Roll Band” in the seventies, and by the 1980s and 90s they were a concert tour juggernaut, already a venerable institution. Incredibly, Mick and Keith and the boys are still active today, a testament to the longevity of this classic band. In this six video lecture series, music historian Dr. Mike Daley (The Beatles and Their World, The 1960s in 60 Songs, Bob Dylan: Words and Music) breaks down the incredible story of the Rolling Stones, tracking their musical changes and innovations, their fascinating history and their continued relevance with impeccable research, rare video clips and fresh insights.
