The music of the Rolling Stones has spanned fifty years and is not about to stop. The site http://www.howthestonesroll.com will not only help the fans remember the music but also those memorable times that have made the band what it is today. These memories will not always be happy as shown by postcards depicting events that actually happened to them.
Members came and went. Some chose to retire from the active music circuit while others have passed on to the other life. There were accidents, sicknesses, and brushes with the law. The band members lived their image to the hilt as the anathema of the then ultimate “boyband”, The Beatles. While the Beatles’ image was full of sunshine and smiles, theirs bordered on the wild and the unsmiling. Not surprisingly, it actually worked for them.
Illegal downloading was totally unheard of during the early times of the Rolling Stones. Today however, their music has not been exempted since there will always be people who will find their music interesting. Not all interested people however will be willing to pay. It should be remembered that the Rolling Stones recently defended the costly price of their concert tickets saying that they have to make something ,with a special note that earnings from music has been drastically affected by illegal downloads.
