London, United Kingdom – Undoubtedly one of most influential acts ever, the history of The Rolling Stones brings you everything that is – rock & roll. In 1964 The Melody Maker asked: Would You Let Your Sister Go With A Rolling Stone? Their early tours saw screaming fans ripping their idols clothes off, riots, arrests, and run in’s with hells angles. A 1972 US tour saw the band decamped to Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, (we can only imagine what went on!). From Satisfaction to Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Honky Tonk Women, The Stones have brought us landmark recordings which are now embedded in pop culture.
