The Rolling Stones have been creating their particular style of music since about 1962 when the original members, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts first started to play together. In those days pianist Ian Stewart (Stew) was a member aswell but as he didn't have the 'teen idol' appearance he was not in the official line up. He became their road manager, which included, among other things, driving the van for the band. The band were originally called the Rollin' Stones after a Muddy Waters song, but changed the spelling in 1963 to the Rolling Stones, after signing to the Decca label.
Mick was known as Mike when he first bumped into Keith Richards. They had been at primary school together but years later had met on a train and discovered that they shared the same musical influences. Mick had several Blues LP's under his arm. This was the beginning of a lifelong partnership which was to change the face of popular music. When Brian Jones was looking for members for his band Mick and Keith joined along with Bill and Charlie.
