The band formed in 1962, when Keith Richards (guitarist and vocalist) met Mick Jagger (vocalist) and Brian Jones (guitarist, vocalist) . They decided to make a Rock 'n Roll band, but they never thought that they were going to be as successful as they are. Then, they met Ian "Stu" Stewart (pianist), Mick Taylor (bassist) and Mick Avery (drummer), who was replaced by Tony Chapman. However, they replaced Chapman with Charlie Watts and Taylor returned to the Art School and left the band.
The Rolling Stones started playing at the Marquee Club in London, Great Britain, and they became a big success there. Then, they got their residence at the Crawdaddy Club in Richmont, where they met The Beatles.
They shortly became a very successful band, and they recorded their first album with legendary songs like "Sympathy for the Devil", "Under my Thumb", and several other songs.
In 1967, The Rolling Stones recorded a Psychedelic Rock album in order to gain more popularity. A lot of bands were recording them, and they decided to do the same. The album was called "Their Satanic Majesties Requests" and it wasn't successful, so the band decided to return to their blues/rock 'n roll typical style. 2 years later, Brian Jones left the band and he was replaced by Mick Taylor almost immediately.
Since Mick Taylor joined, the band became probably the most important rock 'n roll band in the world with The Beatles. In 3 years (1969-1972), they recorded their 3 most successful and important albums, Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street.
Mick Taylor left the band again in 1974 and he was replaced by Ron Wood 2 years later. The band was still very important and they recorded other significant discs like Some Girls and Tatoo You, which kept them in the top of the music charts and made them earn some awards. After recording these 2 discs, they started a huge music tour around the world which took months. It was one of the most important and biggest tours in the history of the band.
The Rolling Stones recorded a new album, Steel Wheels in 1989 and they were inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in the same year. A couple of years later, Bill Wyman left the band and they started a new huge tour around the world.
