An intimate and fun-filled trip down memory lane chronicling the birth of one of music's biggest legends...
Whether you love or loathe the music of The Rolling Stones, this is a band that refuses to be ignored; indifference is just not an option. From their early beginning in the 1960s, The Rolling Stones were rebels with a cause, the very antithesis of their harmonious rivals, The Beatles. On The Rock Trail is a fascinating journey of discovery tracking The Rolling Stones from their distinctly civilized, well-educated, middle-class roots, right through to international recognition as the first, and some would argue, ultimate Bad Boys of Rock 'n' Roll!
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met in Dartford Station, London, where they formed a musical union set to last a lifetime. Brian Jones was not so lucky: he died tragically young. Bill Wyman refused to grow old gracefully and no longer rolls with the Stones, Charlie Watts has remained a steady constant throughout, and not-quite-so-new boy Ronnie Wood has held on brilliantly for the ride.
Follow in the footsteps of these now legendary musicians and find the public spaces and tucked away places where these veritable giants of rock have made their indelible mark. There were colossal highs and desperate lows, addresses ranging from beautiful country mansions to spells of detention at Her Majesty's pleasure. Yet somehow The Rolling Stones have survived and can still strut their stuff with the best of them! Their music has transcended four decades, and most importantly of all, looks set to continue doing so for many more decades to come.
