Flashback Artist of the Month for September 2021
The Rolling Stones are undoubtedly one of the most prominent figures in music history. The U.K. rock band formed in 1962 features vocalist and rock legend Mick Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards, drummer Charlie Watts, and bassist Bill Wyman.
Diverging from the pop rock of the early 1960s, the Rolling Stones pioneered the gritty, heavier-driven sound that came to define hard rock with songs like “Start Me Up,” “Wild Horses,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” and many more. By 2007, The Rolling Stones had four of the top five highest-grossing concert tours of all time.
The band sold about 200 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time. They have also won three Grammy Awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989 and the U.K. Music Hall of Fame in 2004.
From their unbeatable music sales to their signature logo and their influence on rock music, the band will forever be remembered as one of the greatest music acts of all time.
